50 spots/150 interview, by the time you include drop outs and people choose other universities etc. you are pretty much left with a 50/50 chance of getting in. Not sure about topups.
There has historically been top ups, but idk when/if they will come. They might have just decided to not both with them

I just got an offer for Latrobe dentistry, im a non standard applicant who appliednfor their Aspire program a few months ago and got accepted.

however I'm still waiting for offers from several interstate unis. should I enroll at Latrobe first and then withdraw later if needed?

Have La Trobe offers already come out? or is it just for those who applied for the aspire program?

I have also received an offer for La Trobe dentistry today. Just for your reference, I am a non-standard and I did not apply through the Aspire program. My UCAT is in the 97th %ile.

I also have UCAT of 97%, I'm also a non-standard but not sure why I didn't receive one?

That is indeed surprising, I looked up their website and apparently the early round offer is 15 Nov (today). I also didn’t submit a personal statement on VTAC, so it can’t be related to the statement. I do hope you get it next week though!

Ah wow thats interesting... I'll give them a call up on Monday during business hours to see what is going on. Nope, haha I also had La Trobe dentistry as my first preference. Maybe it's because I haven't completed 1 FTE yet (only 0.75 as i have one semester left?)
Thanks heaps anyways - I'll let you know what happens!

Ahh that could be the reason, I have a completed degree. Good luck 😄

Hello, this may be a dumb question but I was wondering if the universities are looking for cumulative GPA's or the year's GPA. For example, would they be looking at all my GPA's from my 3 years of uni or would they look at last year's+1st semester or would they look at solely this year's? Thank you!

Hello, while I’m not an administrator, but from what I’ve been reading on this forum, I’m fairly certain that they look at your cumulative GPA, ie. the GPA that will appear on your academic transcript.

anything above a 6.5gpa you need to get the 99 rank equivalent (if you are at uq then you need a 5.8 gpa) yes no they will not look at atar after you have 1FTE.
