:O Whoa, bit harsh there, innit?

I think she might've meant "even" in the sense that dentistry has lower cut-offs, not that it is a lesser profession on the whole (then again, that's prolly how i chose to interpret it :p ).

Some people work bloody hard to get into dentistry, its not an easy feat. Many people will need to try more than once to get in. When someone says, "i dont think i have any chance of getting even dentistry", it degrogatory as if dentistry is way 'lower' than med. Of course this is one of those phrases that will be interpreted differently by different people, but i didnt like it.

I totally agree with you that ppl work their asses off to get into dent (I like to think I'm one of them :) ) and it is indeed a course very much in demand. Yeah, I can see how you might interpret the comment as being derogatory towards dent, but I guess different people just interpret stuff different wayz. In any case, I think we should all take some chill pills and learn to have mutual respect for all professions (geez, corny much? :p ).

im really sorry hoscar01 i guess i should have used better words...

i didn't mean to say that dentistry is lower than med.
i was onli refering to the UMAT cut-off usually being lower for dent than med..

sorry for any mis-understanding.

Looks like I'll be re-sitting (third time lucky?). Hopefully I get some sort of offer, though it's unlikely with a score of 154 (181%). Anyone know much lower UMAT cut offs for DFEE or BMP, in general?

I do realise that dent has lower cutoffs for interviews, and thus this generates an attitude that its easier to get into. It probably is slightly, but it doesnt warrant the attitude that alot of people have on this forum (although i do realise you dont necessarily have this attitude), its just these comments are recurring, and to be frank quite frustrating, for example, here is another comment from yesterday on another thread, which at the time, i just took a big breath to, but i just got a bit frustrated this time.

"I just dont know if I can be bothered spending a year of my life studying for something that I might screw up again.

would that score get me dent or something?"

"Dent of something"
I mean seriously thats a terrible terrible attitude.

You could try Bond, I think their UMAT cutoff is about 150.

I think i liked:
'The only good thing about dent is the money, and i'm not really worried about that anyway. Still, it's my 2nd preference' ,
better.

Seems like people are offended by my apparent disrespect for dentistry, which was probably born out of ignorance. Regardless, I think people are taking my careless comments far too seriously.

"Dent of something" I mean seriously thats a terrible terrible attitude."
...how?

I don't see why wanting to know whether my course would get me into dent/any related health/sci course is a problem. Maybe its because of the flippant way I referred to it, in which case do you now want me to refer to dent. as "The most esteemed and glorious profession"?

There are some good attitudes in relation to UMAT results. Keep in mind, there's always next year so best of luck!

They will inescapably fail Hos.

It would be the equivalent situation if you’re commencing space engineering; it wouldn’t work because you have little or no interest in it (generally speaking). However, many people can adjust to certain situations, and many may succeed in completing the degree, although when they’re professionals in their field, their duties will make them miserable.

If you have no interest in subjects chances are you’ll end up with rubbish results (non-standards take note hence undertake degree you’re interested in).
