Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)

272 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

Here's a quick questionnaire regarding the admissions process at Saskatchewan. We ran this questionnaire last year, and I'd like to keep it going on an annual basis so we can generate some profiles of applicants who have been accepted, rejected, or placed on a waitlist for each school. If you are applying this year, please take a few minutes to fill out the below questions. :)

 

Please keep all replies focussed as answers to the below; I will delete any non-answers in this thread. If you have any questions, please start a new thread so that this one stays on topic. Please check out the big thread in the General Premed Forum as well to let us know which schools accepted you, and which ones waitlisted you or rejected you: pub125.ezboard.com/fpremed101frm0.showMessage?topicID=648.topic

 

If you can copy and paste the below form, and fill it out, that'd be awesome. If you want to contribute your GPA and MCAT stats in addition, that's great too. :)

 

------

 

I'm a (Province) resident in (undergraduate or graduate) studies. My GPA was (XYZ) and my MCAT scores were:

 

Physical Sciences: (x)

Verbal: (y)

Biological Sciences: (z)

Written Sample: (z)

 

I was (accepted/rejected/waitlisted) by Saskatchewan. This is my (first/second/third/more than third) time applying to this school.

 

Of all the schools I applied to, I'd like to attend (XYZ Med School) as my first choice.

Hi,

 

I'm a saskatchewan resident and I was accepted by the U of S med school. I finished 3rd year of my biochem degree and I applied only to the U of S.

 

MCAT - 8, 10, Q, 10 (they're not the greatest scores but I met the cutoffs)

 

GPA - Two best full years - 3.90 on the OMSAS scale, but more importantly for the U of S, my average was 89%.

 

I wish everyone on this forum the best of luck in applying to medical schools and fulfilling their dreams of becoming great doctors.

I'm a Saskatchewan resident and I was in undergraduate studies but officially finished last Friday. Woohoo!

 

I was accepted by U of S after seeing all you guys get accepted, finally calling them up and asking why I haven't received a letter yet in Montreal. Getting good by phone's great! This is my first time applying to this school.

I just finished my BSc in Cell Bio at UofC. I was initially waitlisted at UofS but was accepted today. I have been accepted at UofA so I will most likely reject Saskatchewan's offer.

GPA ~3.8

I'm a Sask resident with a B.MusEd and M.Mus

 

I was interviewed and rejected by UofM but interviewed and accepted by UofS. (~90%, 34R)

 

This was my first (and thankfully last!) time applying. U of S was my first choice (but U of M still hurt my feelings!)

Well since no one has added to this thread in 2 years, I figured i might as well start.

Waitlisted, OOP, from Ontario

Just finished year 3 of my second undergrad (nursing). My first degree marks were abysmal.

U of S was my only interview, out of 11 applications across the country. And i've applied too many times in the past to count, but most of those tries were from the abysmal degree, so I didn't really have much of a chance then.

Really hoping all you OOP's that got acceptances also got accepted elsewhere and you decline UofS :D

 

Forgot my stats:

94% best 2 years

MCAT 10/9/11 Q (V/P/B)

Hi

I'm a Sask resident currently living and working in Calgary as an RN. Did two degrees, BSc. (BIOC) and BN. Last two years GPA ~3.8 or 86% on a U of S scale (I think). Thought I did really well on the MM interview this year, so that may have been my saving grace!

MCAT:

 

Verbal: 10

Physical: 7 (two years away from the sciences ;-()

Biological: 12

Writing: R

 

I applied to U of S and U of C. Rejected pre-interview at U of C (missed the cutoff by 1.74 points). Accepted at U of S. This is my fourth round applying and I must encourage those out there who have rejection letters to keep perservering!!!

 

HW

 

P.S. I started a Facebook thread for those accepted this year: U of S Medicine Class of 2011.

OOP applicant from AB (4th yr bcem major @ UofC).

Waitlisted here, UofM, and UofO, accepted at UofA, UofC, UofT.

GPA: probably around 94 or 95% on sask scale

MCAT: 33R (12/9/12)

MMI: sighs..i actually missed my flight by 2 minutes the night before the interview. So I drove all night long from calgary to sask to give my MMI. needless to say I wasnt well rested and don't think I performed great (but no killer moments either, I dont think).

Will probably pass up my spot here if I get it, in favor of UofA or UofT. I applied only to UofA last year and was rejected post interview there. This year I applied to the 6 schools listed above. Goodluck everyone! Everything happens for a reason, and perseverance will pay off! Way to go HateWaiting!!!!!!
