Will I get into JCU Dentistry?

The real figure you provided is much higher than that from QTAC stats. QTAC figures are: 102 offers, 76 accepted, 69 enrolled. Are there a lot of international students (i.e. 20+) in your cohort?
There's a fair few international students. I got my info for our intake from the 1st year coordinator and anatomy lecturer, so take that as you will.

Thanks for your response JordossM :)

I'm doing dental volunteering abroad for 2 months starting in December. VERY EXCITING!
Hi there!
Where did you apply to get dental volunteering abroad? (Congrats, and hope it's an awesome/fulfilling time :) )

I am from Townsville, got an A on the QCS, got an OP 4, have had over 3 weeks of work experience at various Dental practices and received references from all 3. My application is quite good (I know that's hard to judge but I had it checked by many people who were impressed) and the references I attached were 2 from the dental practices (in which they both detailed how passionate I am about rural dentistry and health issues) and 1 from my employer and friend who had known me for over half of my life. What are my chances of getting in?
Hey JordossM!

Would you happen to know the lowest GPA for an offer in Dentistry at JCU? I current have a GPA of 6.714, what do you think my chances are?

JCU is primarily based on your written application, and eventual interview. I'm sure a GPA of 6.714 puts you in good standing, as the higher the GPA is probably better, but you'll have to ask JCU whether they'll only take your Master's GPA, and not also include the GPA of your undergraduate degree, jiaxing .

As indicated by my OP 4, JCU is heavily application based. Your high GPA does put you in good standing, if you've got a high quality application you're a shoe-in. :)

Do you know of anyone getting in with a 6?

Before you got official offer from QTAC, did you get a courtesy call or email or letter from JCU that informed you a place offer for dentistry?
I did not. I talked to others and that's pretty much an exclusively med thing to receive.
