Any Canadian CPAs working in Australia? How did you make the move?

2023.06.09 03:51 iamdoneundergrad Any Canadian CPAs working in Australia? How did you make the move?

Hi all!
I want to work in Australia (particularly Sydney or Brisbane) as a Canadian Citizen, but being my line of work is a CPA, I'm not sure if a Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a smart choice. I read there's a clause that you can only work for an employer max 6 months, but I've also seen some older posts (as in 5+ years old) that they came to Australia via WHV and managed to secure a sponsorship/work visa while they were physically in Australia already. But the thing is, I think that's a bit too risky for my taste (on brand as a CPA lol)
I'm curious to see if there's anyone who did something similar. Can you tell me about your experience? How does private health insurance also work as a non-Aussie citizen? Is it in fact easy to get a job there as a Canadian CPA if you come in to AUS unemployed? What's best course of action for a case like mine? Let me know! :)

2023.06.09 03:50 Fluffy_Maintenance_5 [Landlord US-FL] Landlord returning security deposit- trying to be fair and legal

Hello. I am a landlord and trying to figure out what is legal and FAIR to deduct from the security deposit. When my tenant moved in to the house it was professionally cleaned. When I went in for the inspection (5 days late because they asked for extra time and I agreed to 5 days) the house smelled like cigarette smoke and the carpet smelled like dog pee. There was trash in the backyard and trash that did not fit in the trash can as well as in the refrigerator. (I have photos of all of this). They parked on my covered back porch (which is clearly not for parking) and there are oil stains on the pavement. The house was relatively clean but not move in ready. (I do not mind whatsoever to do a couple hours of cleaning and not charge for it). I am really not wanting to charge them for the new carpets that I possibly need because they are old carpets. I am considering charging them for a carpet steam job but not even necessarily wanting to go that far. Like I said, I am trying to be fair and legal. I spent several hours of my own time scrubbing the back porch, cleaning the floors, refrigerator, oven, fans and general deep clean things. The lease said the house needs to be in the condition it was on move in day. (Professionally cleaned). I truly would not have cared about my time in doing so. I had many of my own cleaning supplies, I only purchased extra supplies because I thought it would help with the cigarette smell and oil stains on the back porch. Below are a list of things I am considering deducting from the deposit.
- $90 for the cleaning supplies I purchased to cover the smell of dog pee, cigarette smoke, and the oil on the covered back porch. (I have a receipt). This is not including the cleaning supplies I purchased to make it move in ready. As I said, I am not worried about that.
-$100 for trash removal. I had a car load of trash that I had to remove and take to the dump. This was trash left in the yard and trash that was incorrectly placed in the trash can. When the trash collector came it was not all collected because of it not fitting in the cans.
-5 days of prorated rent for staying 5 days passed when the lease ends. When I agreed to allow them to stay the extra 5 days I was not planning on charging, however this was never discussed. The reason I am thinking of charging them for it is because I am almost certain the carpets need to be replaced, as the smell of dog pee and cigarettes is terrible. This will go towards that cost but most certainly will not come near covering the cost.
-$200 pet fee. In the lease it states there is a $200 non refundable pet fee for each pet. They had 2 dogs and only paid a $200 pet fee. I figured this extra $200 for the 2nd dog that they did not pay for would cover the cost of a steam job. I do believe that I will have to replace the carpet instead. However, I am trying to be fair because the carpet is old and I do not think its fair they purchase brand new carpet and I come out on top.
This is a total of $700. I just wanted to hear some opinions to make sure that I am being fair and legal. Thank you in advance!

Hi! Fairly new to the state of PA and I just drive everywhere and don’t know much about public transportation in PA. I am going to start a job at center city in Philly and the train is the easier way to get there. So, wanted to ask is there any app that allow me to track the train departure/arrival etc? Also, any idea where can I find info about price and parking as well? Planning to do half drive-half train commute. Thanks!

2023.06.09 03:40 LifeMammoth1582 Do you think this job that I have an orientation for tomorrow is a scam?

I had two interviews for a "Marketing Communications Coordinator" position for a marketing company working with non-profit organizations and I have a gut feeling it might be a scam, but idk. So I thought it was a bit weird that the second lady I interviewed with kind of just read off a script explaining the company rather than really getting to know if I'm qualified. After that interview happened I had a good feeling I'd get the job so the "CEO" called me that night to let me know I got the position. Another weird thing is that each of the people I talked to mentioned that they are internally promoting people to become the regional director. I really don't fully understand what I'd be doing either. When we talked about pay they broke it down into phases. The first four weeks is $400-$600, second phase $1000~, and so on. ANYWAYS I have orientation tomorrow, but if it is pyramid schemey sounding then I'll just say I got offered another position or something. I also just checked their LinkedIn and there's more positions available under "Marketing Event Planning", "Marketing Event Assistant", and the one I applied to. I need advise on if you think this job is a scam??

2023.06.09 03:40 Goodvibe333 Frustration

Hello everyone, lets just start by saying I'm so over this. This is just insane. So in December I started with vulva buring which I thought was a UTI, well we all know how that goes. Got rid of that buring went away and then boom back. Had the buring for awhile, it's still there but comes and goes, now i have moved on to pain that is always moving around. Some days it's vaginal pain that seems to radiat form the purdenal nerve, then its numbness and tingling around my buttock region, sore muscles in butt cheeks, cramps like on a period and even a slight sensitivity on my lower abdomen that is painful to touch. Now once again this all comes and goes constantly. Could be some or all in a day, and some days nothing at all but that's rare since I constantly focus on all this. I'm beginning to think that my constant worry of this which is made worse by horrible anxiety that I already have. Is not helping my pelvic floor feels so tesne. Is this a real thing or are we all just driving ourselves insane. My husband tells me I should get a job and get my mind off of all of it. But how do I stop constantly feeling these sensations. Sorry so long.

2023.06.09 03:38 autumn_is_lovely [Online] [5e] [Homebrew] [EST] [LGBTQ+ Friendly] Looking for 2-4 players for a desolate future/cyberpunk home brew setting game

Hi, my name is Autumn (they/them). I'm 18 and have been playing DnD for 5 years and am wanting to run another game. An important note I am autistic and have ADHD and so please be kind and understand that when communicating with me that I have difficulty with tone, social inferences, and understanding social norms/contexts. The setting and home brew elements of this game come from a campaign I am currently running with some close friends and wanted to branch out to other people. We refer to the setting as Night Lights and mechanically it is base 5e with a few changes and I will be allowing a free feat at level one as-well as probably supplying a few home brew classes I have play tested and thoroughly looked over. This setting is mainly role play heavy but I don't shy away from combat. I attempt to have a combat every other session but move at a slower pace. The setting and lore of my world is not very set in stone or properly written but I will give a synopsis here and if you would like to or do join I would be willing to expand further. An important first note the nature of this setting is cyberpunk and therefore filled with anarchist and anti capitalist themes and is also heavily influenced by Blade Runner, Romantic era literature, and the ttrpg show Kollok 1991. In this world the year is 2050, it's been 42 years since the sky went black. In the early 2000's the Sun showed signs of a premature death, to prevent this global reaction occurred mainly headed by the U.S. organization S.T.A.R. Institute (An off shoot of NASA standing for Senior Technological Astral Research Institute). In a few years due to this time’s advanced technology a Dyson Sphere like construction was assembled around the sun and now the only thing in the sky is a metal construct with a glowing white aura housing a black hole. This is a world of constant darkness and apathy. Since then the world has gotten worse, far worse. There is no wish for change a global remark of "so it goes", apathy has lead to the death of politics and possibility of a loving life. For the United States unions are a thing of the past, most people can't live on their wages and nearly all have to act in crime, the minimum working age is 9 and by 12 most are expected to work full time jobs. People were rolled over by companies and governments because they didn't act enough to stop what was coming and simply let it and still let it happen. People reside on three celestial bodies, Earth, The Moon, and Mars. Mars is known as the industrial planet, once the fleeing place of the rich, its poor hospitality and crowding nature of large factory cities had the rich flee to the moon, their private paradise. Mars is still a planet of red dust, The modern Wild West mixed with Mad Max. Industrial mining cities dig into the core of Mars made of this expensive and mystical black rock. Man's adventures into the stars changed them forever. Close contact with the core of Mars and celestial energy infected people and mutated the world. With astral research came what we would see as magic but to them they see as just the state of the world. A part of this new magic came one of the three forms of humanity in this world, The Reborn. Form human contact and processes to allow for habitation changed Mars’ natural events. Now come storms of black numbing rain and red lighting. This lighting is attracted to life and upon striking graves return them to the land of the living. The longest a Reborn has been recorded to live after re awakening has been 2 years before their return to decay. The two other forms of humanity that remain are the mutated humans that are the majority and Carcasses. Carcass is a military designation standing for Carbon Animated Remote Combat Autonomous Specialized Soldier. People grown in vats for the purpose of war. They are husks of people with accelerated growth and fractured personalities. After their time in military service they are necessitated to go into the normal world, unprepared for what it has to offer them and clearly identifiable by their sharper features and translucent skin. Onto mechanics besides additional home brew classes I have yet to finalize on here are the four changed mechanics. Cantrips: all cantrip damage is reduced one die size to a minimum of a d4. Bloodied: A creature who is at half hit points or lower is Bloodied and has -1 on all non death save d20 rolls (I as the DM will roll characters death saving throws and npcs will have death saving throws). Lasting Wounds: If an attack is a critical hit or a creature takes damage of 1/4th their maximum hit points or more they gain a lasting wound, a lasting wound is a minus to the creature maximum hit point total equal to their level. Rests: How I run rests changes because of the setting to maintain balance of short rest to long rest classes, long rests can only be made in a safe place and the first rest spent at a location has to be a short rest. There is also a mechanic known as a Deal With The Stars, an ethereal Faustian bargain with a primordial being fundamental to the world which I embody as the DM and a transaction I will elaborate more on if you join. If you would like to join or have any questions please leave a comment or message me and fill out my google form. Before being sure if I am going to add you to my game I would like to have a conversation with you followed up by a few more in depth conversations and I apologize for any confusion within this post from improper wording and my discord is Autumn#1066.

2023.06.09 03:35 gameboykid93 Working QA and need advice on where to go next, any ideas?

So for background, graduated 2015 with a B.S. in Biochemistry, worked at a bookstore and did computer repair for a year, worked in environmental science for 2.5 years, and finally have been working Quality Assurance at a drink company for the past 4.5 years to now.
I made the change over from the environmental lab because of management issues and pay, and things have been somewhat better on at least the pay side of things. However I feel heavily stagnate, my job is relatively easy and the worst thing I deal with on a day to day basis is horrible attitudes from people who are friends with the higher ups and so are encouraged to continue to be children. Overall there is no room for advancement. Supervisor positions are taken by either friends of upper management or by people they need to move from somewhere else in the company to get out of the way, other positions in the company have no similarity to my experience or current position and at best are the same level of pay if not worse, and I am at best tolerated if not outright disliked by the majority of my peers/superiors due to what is best summed up as cultural conflict.
My issue is that I very much do not want to continue to work quality. The pay is comfortable for the area, 50k-ish for myself in a place where average household income is somewhere in the 30k range believe. It's a job where people 15 years older than me intend to retire from and I can see why and could even see myself doing the same. But the constant abrasion of working with immature backstabbers, a constant fear of job security because of past experiences as well as said backstabbers, and the feeling that I'm not gaining any real experience nor am able to get any opportunities to gain experience is taking it's toll on me. I was just hoping some people here could possibly throw ideas my way of career paths to look into transitioning to given my experience. I've had coding and webdev suggested to me and I do find those things not-uninteresting, but from what I've seen I would have to either gain further education while maintaining my current job (which considering my experience with academia getting a B.S. while only working part-time, to say I dread it would be understating vastly) or would have to take a pay cut which at this point, with student loans and living expenses would be near non-viable. I understand a big portion of my problem is location as the major employers around here are manufacturers/factories and I imagine that company culture will be similar if not outright the same at any of those but at my stage in life I can't really just up and move somewhere without taking a huge bump in pay that would allow me to maintain my standard of living. Just really could use some ideas, please. And thank you.

2023.06.09 03:35 GiveMoreBloodAlabama Blood Donation Around Montgomery

Hello friends!
Apologies for the tl;dr but I will summarize at the bottom accordingly. I want to talk a bit about donating blood with American Red Cross around Montgomery.
I recently took on a new role in Montgomery(and surrounding areas) to facilitate Blood Donation Events and educate people on the importance of blood donation. It’s been a very interesting journey so far and it’s led me to this subreddit. I’m planning some exciting events with a few local favorite organizations and always looking for more.
So I decided to make this post to open a dialogue about blood donation in our area, provide some information, and answer any questions anyone may have about individual blood donation or hosting an event. Sooo…..
Why donate blood?: Every 2 seconds in the United States someone needs blood or blood products to maintain their health or survive. Each blood donation can save up to 3 lives! You are able to donate blood every 56 days and there is no more impactful yet easy way to positively affect the health of members of our community than donating blood. Currently Alabama is an “importing state”; meaning we don’t collect enough blood to supply our hospitals and have to import blood. I’m hoping to help change that. 30-45 mins of our time every few months truly makes all the difference in the world.
Why Red Cross?: American Red Cross is a non-profit humanitarian organization that has been helping people through their hardest times for over 140 years. The branding and reputation of Red Cross is of a commitment to help people through their toughest times. When you volunteer your time and blood to Red Cross you can feel secure in knowing you are partnering with a company that will be there for the community when needed most.
How can I help?: Go to redcrossblood.org to become a donor and/or fill out information to sponsor a drive. This is also a place to see upcoming drives. We are always looking for new partner organizations to host drives with us. And PLEASE share information about the importance of giving blood to family and loved ones.
Tl;dr: Donating blood is super important and Red Cross is a great place so help save lives. Visit redcrossblood.org to learn more. Feel free to dm me or ask any questions below.🩸 ♥️

2023.06.09 03:35 soup54461 Does anyone else "struggle with empathy" and building rapport?

It's in quotes because I don't actually struggle with empathy outside work.
Just at work I find myself annoyed when customers feel the need to try to get sympathy from me or just tell me unnecessary details about their lives. Like please just tell me how I can help you so we can get on with this call. I'm glad you just bought a new house but please talk to someone else about it. Please......
I work for a bank call center and we can waive 3 fees per 12 month period. It's not at my discretion at all but people still feel the need to tell me about their financial struggles and why they feel like they deserve to have their fees waived. I either can waive it or I can't regardless of what story they have. I can literally get written up if I don't waive the fee when they're eligible.
I just started this new job and in order to pass quality I have to ask each customer how their day is going and this opens me up to all kinds of useless conversations. It's so exhausting and it's driving me right up the wall! 🙃
Okay rant over.....

2023.06.09 03:32 FerdinandBowie Im on performance review but should i quit instead?

I have a pt job at a non franchise place.
Some co worker yelled at me. I reported him. They said they will look at the footage. I had to ask twice. They said they forgot about it or couldn't get ahold of security to look at footage. I remembered wrong day. I told them right day. I contacted them they said they waited too long. They later apologized and said wont happ again. Hr liason yelled at me because she said she wanted feedback. I complained to her. She said sorry you felt that way. I complained to hr. Nothing.
1 of 6 bosses called me into their office. He said i was doing stuff not true and said i needed to help out more. I tried to defend myself. He yelled at me. I complained to hr. They did an investigation w paid time off. Nothing. Said "what's yelling, really?" Then said come back for return to work meeting. I said what is it about? Hr rep said nothing. Finally said just going over what boss brought up. I go in hr said its a nothing meeting. Its actually a performance review meeting with stuff boss brought up and new stuff they never bothered to talk to me about before. Ive been there a year.
Then boss who yelled is LEADING THE MEETING. I email hr, lead boss, they all said case closed.
Im on 30 day period.
Should i finish 30 day (Thanksfully im only working 2 days per week due to a great summer job)or just give my 2 weeeks?

2023.06.09 03:31 checkmate508 I can see well enough to know my (lack of) eye contact is putting people off

I have macular dystrophy and have had low vision my whole life. About a year ago, I lost a lot more of my visual field. Now, when I point my eyes at someone, I just see a little bit of the side of their face.
I realize this is giving me a lot of social anxiety. It's boring to pretend to look at people when I can't really see them, and I find myself getting uncomfortable and dropping my gaze. Even when I'm being very disciplined, I'm not sure how successful my eye contact actually is. (Little kds, who have no filter, often ask me what I'm looking at, so I'm clearly doing something wrong.)
I'm not used to disclosing my low vision and tend to work around the things I can't do, like drive. I do my computer-based job without accommodations, and don't really feel like making this a big thing at work. But I realize I am starting to feel uneasy talking to people I'm casually friendly with, like coworkers and my partner's friends.
Anyone else who is low vision have experience with this? Do you even bother to feign eye contact? Do you explain yourself?

2023.06.09 03:31 OneDay1125 Recovering 5-years still together and I still hurts

That’s sort of an understatement. It’s been tough mentally on me. It’s been almost 5 years and we are still together and I still have momentary outburst when alone. These outburst come out of nowhere. Just driving home alone. It’s hard to have sex knowing someone without my consent was there. I’m feeling so fucked up. My wife is truly remorseful and incredibly sorry. Best friend. But it kills me at times. We have a great relationship still but it hurts, and it’s on my mind way too often. Any advice?
There are plenty of times I wished I had revenge sex, had opportunities but something inside of me stopped it before it could happen. My wife knows I was talking to a younger woman and hated it and she brings her name up from time to time like it’s the worst thing in the world. That I did that to her when I stopped it quickly. I finally said, in a moment of disbelieve, that she would still harp on something that happen years ago after discovery. I broke down and told my wife it’s my biggest regret that I didn’t have sex with her. I’m I wrong? So fucked in the head even after all this time.
My wife never was into sex before her affair, it was more of a job to her. I feel it’s so important and I missed out on many good years. I feel she should do a lot more for me now. I want to experiment more sexually now, but she talks a good game and doesn’t do much. She knows it’s very important to me. I guess if I was her AP there would be more and better sex with passion.
I've change since her affair - I want more sex with quality, more passion with adventure. I'm I wrong for asking for more sex when I only get it in the bedroom, at night right before bed just before she falls asleep.

2023.06.09 03:30 Financial-Map-6625 Doing the JD or taking the bar?

I just received the admission decision today, I was rejected from the school I just graduated from two weeks ago as an LLM. I got my GPA which is 3.0 I took 31 credits out of 24 (contracts, criminal law, Arbitration, introduction to the American law, Civil procedure, professional responsibility, international business transactions, LLM colloquium, legal writing and research and independent study) and this is my first time studying in a foreign language. I submitted my application way back in March with my fall transcript. However they got back to me two weeks ago asking me to send my full transcript (after I went to their office multiple times asking about the status of my admission) that means they considered my application very late and they told me there is only 2 spots left. As an LLM I'm not required to take the LSAT to transfer from an LLM A to a J.D because I already did 1 years of law school and ai believe having the LSAT will make my record much stronger. Now, I do not know what to do I have 2 options and please guys help me to decide 1- Applying for an OPT (which I already did) so I could stay here legally for another year, study for the LSAT and take it in SEPTEMBER or OCTOBER and apply to different schools but I'm really scared I will get rejected again and again I know 3.0 Is not alot but taking 10 classes and studying for tge first time in another language (I'm not making excuses it was really hard) hit me hard, I could take non curve clases and get straight A's like fellow LLM'S but I want to take the bar and that take us to my second option. 2-I have fulfilled all the requirements for the bar as an LLM I took 9 credits classes and PR which means I can take the next test In February and If I pass the exam I will be a licensed attorney (I can only take the NY bar exam) and I can spend the upcoming months preparing and hopefully I will pass it. The thing is a JD will give me much more jobs opportunity and will help me in the future and I wanted to use my LLM to get into the JD which unfortunately I did not. If someone said take the LSAT and look into law school admissions decisions then if i did not get accepted apply for the bar in July next year the thing is my OPT will end in June if I did not get accepted I will have to leave the states. what should I do please help me I really really want to do the JD but I'm afraid that I will just waste my time.

2023.06.09 03:28 Brendanayates ADA Accommodations

Hey All,
Long story short I had a major health event and discovery a little over a year ago. I was diagnosed with two chronic illnesses (for context: POTS and Fibromyalgia). What is most difficult is that I can lose consciousness for apparently no reason, due to my body not adjusting properly to standing, etc.
I had an issue about 6 months into my new job after leaving my last due to my health and the nature of the work being unsustainable.
I lost consciousness at work, remained in a state of constant flairs with both disorders for weeks.
After beginning to lose consciousness when driving, I was warned by 4 physicians that if I was to continue driving they would place a hold on my license. My employer required that I continued coming to work and stated I couldn’t be remote, so I went on leave.
I challenged and asked for an accommodation (despite others working remotely) and agreed 2 days a week would be helpful to help manage the flairs. This comes along with extreme fatigue, confusion, etc. I also requested reassignment, which was declined due to tenure.
I also seek clinical care with the company I work for, and the cocktail of prescribed medications were “severely” interactive and were causing me to have moderate symptoms of serotonin syndrome. I have been off the medication for 6 months and still have involuntary jerks in my entire body. I described this medication as feeling “drugged” and told my physician I was beginning to suffer performance issues as a consequence. I was told to continue taking the medication no matter what.
At this time I requested reassignment to a nearby office for the same position, which was 5 minutes from home and did not require me to drive. The reassignment was declined due to not meeting the required 1 year, though the official policy is 6 months.
It was also shared with my by my direct supervisor that “Given you just came back from leave and your current situation, we’re worried the adjustment would be too much for you to handle”. I brought this conversation back to HR.
My supervisor then said this never happened, and said it was due to “long standing performance concerns”. My concern was that this was the first I’d heard of it, and I was then gaslit, in that “long-standing” was never said.
As a result of bringing back to Hr, they were surprised the “performance concerns” were not discussed or recorded in their approved fashion, which was to discuss and send an email recap which was to be acknowledged by the employee. I then received an email to acknowledge, which resulted in me being on a “90 waiting period” to request a transfer. Throughout this time, all 5 of the nearby locations were turned over for my position.
The performance concerns were due to me poisoning and drugging myself with an inappropriately high dose to start and severely interactive medications prescribed by the company physicians. (Healthcare industry)
I found a remote role recently, and they encouraged me to apply, but I’m specifically requesting reassignment as an accommodation. I don’t understand how I am made to jump through hoops and stick out these disorders and my requests for reassignment to even remote roles for my same position are subject to the interviewing and hiring procedures and tenure (which I now meet). There is no accommodations process for reassignment they are saying, and it is just first come first serve.
The internal process requires reviewing past performance which is why I wasn’t able to transfer. I feel like I’m being blocked, my leave and disabilities were the literal reason for why the transition might be “too overwhelming” etc.
They also said the requisition went external and said it couldn’t be opened to internal applicants and an internal employee took every position.
What grounds do I have to make this happen? I lost 50% of my income due to this disability and am paycheck to paycheck. I can’t afford a lawyer or any issues with leaving since I now qualify for FMLA.
Thanks

2023.06.09 03:26 cbinette84 I'm looking for advice to help choose the right path.

I've decided that I really want to pursue becoming a pilot. This is obviously going to take a while longer to accomplish than it was to get my CDL. I'm starting this later in life (38) and already have a busy life with a wife, three kids 6,10,13, full time job and all the normal life stuff.
As I've been exploring the steps to take, I've been leaning towards going after a 135 job. Yes I know the airlines pay more and have great benefits and I'm not ruling it out entirely. However I see that having a degree is highly highly recommended. I don't have one. The cost and time needed for me to get one at this point is a lot. I have looked into it though.
So here's a breakdown of my current options. First is the state college that offers a BA in aviation program. 4 years and gets me PPL, Instrument, Multi, Commercial, CFI, CFII. However there would obviously still be a lot of time building needed after that. Cost would be around 100k. Now obviously with option it would take student loans which I don't start paying until after. Could apply for grants and what not. My biggest concern is I was never a great student. I was always better hands learning than classroom, hence why I'm a truck driver, and I don't want to get into this program only to flop.
The next option is ATP. There's a location about a hour and a half away from me. 7 months from zero to CFI. About the same price however I have to stop working. Which actually means it costs more because I need to find the money to cover expenses for 7+ months. Time building needed after but it's a whole lot faster. Plus they have more direct paths towards lots of companies. Down side no degree.
Last option is trying to do this on my own through a local flight school. There a few options that are close. The big risk here is not being able to continue training because of money.
Does anyone have some incite they could offer. Anyone been in a similar situation as me? How did you accomplish the end goal? I would appreciate anything you kind people have to offer. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk haha

2023.06.09 03:24 Justhapppytobehere Too many gap years?

I'm a canadian applicant and graduated with my Bachelors degree in 2020 so this is my third gap year and I'm planning to write the DAT in early August and either apply this cycle or next cycle depending on how my DAT goes. My question is whether or not it's looked down upon for an applicant to have 3-5 gap years (considering they have good stats). During these gap years I've been working front desk at a dental clinic, done shadowing, and also recently started a dental assisting job. I'm also taking prerequisite courses to meet requirements. I have good experiences and good stats so far but I want to know if I have a lower chance because of my gap years and if I'll be at a further disadvantage if I wait till next year to apply if it turns out to be too late in the cycle this year. Will they question why I didn't apply earlier? I don't really have a good enough reason other than I wanted to gain some work experience in the field and also save up money to help with tuition/living expenses. My situation isn't like most other non-trads who have pursued a Masters or a different field and then realised it's not for them and switched paths. I've known I wanted to do dentistry for a while but I'm just pursuing it later. Is this bad? Any gotten accepted with a similar situation?
