I think the start date is 2nd or 3rd of March ... not sure exactly, but definitely early March.

I applied today to GUV, and have been accepted ... so might be seeing you there! Are you staying in a 5 bedroom apartment?

I got an offer WOOT WOOT

for me i did a year of med sci before getting an offer ^_^

my UAI was 96.60 (not sure if they used this)
gpa... very bad.... not even a credit average... prob 4.8ish the last time i calculated...
UMAT raw 166 (76% percentile overall i think from memory)

so from these mediocre results i guess my interview must have been very good....:lol:

hahahahaha...I am still not over getting an offer.... I was totally not expecting it..... hahahahahaha..... I think i am about to go crazy.... :D I wont be able to sleep tonight/today;)
Hahaha, i am so stoked to get an offer too! I had to read it over a few times just to make sure i read it correctly! I was in Dental Therapy at Griffith but now i get to be a Dentist YAY :lol: I guess it just goes to show that dental therapy students CAN cross over.

I got in with:
UMAT raw: 158
GPA: 4.69 (I applied for special consideration which would have boosted my GPA up, not sure by how much though)
INTERVIEW: I'm guessing i would have to have done incredibly well, seeing that everything else is very low.

Congrats to everyone who got an offer, and to those that didn't, keep trying!! It took me three times, I guess that makes it "third time lucky" ^_^

Hey ToothFairy, were you in 1st year last year? If you were, then Im in your year! Congrats on switching across. PM me who you are!

heyy...does anyone noe if we have to pay for the last two years?
and how much?
and whether we can get like no interest fee help or something :S?
p.s. - yes i did get into griffith dent as welllllll :D
hey. this has been discussed in a few threads but basically, yes you have to pay the last 2 years. Comes to $100K for the last 2 years. If youre international you pay upfront. If youre an aus citizen you can FEE-HELP it (which is the same as HECS)


For everyone talking about where to live, there's a thread about it...somewhere.

To everyone who got offers: congrats!!!!

I haven't been on here in months but figured i'd just come on to see how you guys fared for the offers that came out yesterday.

Congrats to everyone that got in.

GUV is, to put it bluntly, the biggest scam since life insurance. You pay us money while you're alive and then when you die we'll give it to someone else. HOW CAN I PASS THIS UP?

But, it is okay for meeting people, and it is okay for convenience and getting to uni first year.

I'm in 2nd year dent this year and I guess i'll probably see you guys at some point in the year.

Not sure why I came back to post- i've been losing a lot of sleep lately and my head hurts.

Anyway, good luck with everything, even though you don't know me and i don't know you and it's highly unlikely we'll ever recognise eachother after this point of contact ever again, if you remember anything, remember this; save the last bullet for yourself.

sorry abt the last two years....so are you sure that we can get FEE HELP? is there like an interest or somethig with that...
what is the difference between FEE HELP and HECS?
So does this mean we can just pay it bk when we are in the work force?
allllso..abt accommodation.....the griffith village accommodation - is that close to where the dentistry lectures are gonna be held? Bcos I've heard you are better off getting an apartment in south port, since its like a drive away right?
thankkks in advance :D
