  1. Also interested in any updates on this
  2. Result: Accepted! Stream: English Time Stamp: May 8th, 6:34am wGPA: 3.93 CASPER: Felt great ECs: Working RN, health-related volunteering and research, RN-related provincial awards Interview: Felt terrible about this one, cold panel, rambled a lot, fully expected a hard reject. Just goes to show interview perception rarely correlates with actual performance. To those who are still trying, don't give up! I did 9 years of undergrad including 1st/2nd degrees to get to this point; if you want it bad enough you'll find a way eventually!
  3. Can't believe I finally get to post this... TIME STAMP: May 8, 8:43AM RESULT: ACCEPTED GPA: 3.94 MCAT: 515 ECs: Working RN, research, health-related volunteering, some RN-related provincial awards. GEOGRAPHY: IP INTERVIEW: Walking out I felt like I killed it, but as time went by I started doubting my answers. To those who are still trying, don't give up!

    Same question!
  10. Hey everyone, quick question for those of you that applied this cycle. Let's say I completed 10 courses at one institution and had them transferred over to another school where I used those transfer credits to earn a degree. Are those courses included in the degree GPA? Workbook guide says to report all transfer credits and grades, but doesn't say if they're included in dGPA? Thank you

    hey so what I meant was I had a question prepared about Ottawa/Ottawa's medical program that I thought was quite good, one of the panelists twisted my question in a way that made me seem like I hadn't done my proper research into the city/school; sorry for being vague. Not a huge deal but definitely not the best impression I wanted to leave and I tried to save it afterwards as best I could

    Has anyone else done their interview already? I legitimately felt like I choked even after practicing so much, started off nervous, panel was stone-faced, even corrected me several times. Terrible feeling, with my gpa I needed to kill it and I felt like I didn't

    Is this for Ottawa?
  16. Curious, anyone's ABS verifiers been contacted so far this cycle? Thanks
  17. I too am sitting at a 128 CARS, and I also think those will be the cut-offs for the reasons you mentioned unfortunately. I've been thinking about re-writing lately but I don't want to jump the gun too soon; how many cycles would you guys apply with a 128 CARS before re-writing, assuming cutoff stays at 129 this year? I'm thinking two more cycles?
  18. Hey Careb, I called admissions and specifically asked this, and they said they don't know what they're doing with cGPA this year i.e. its role in selection factors. It'll be interesting to see what the average accepted GPA will be; I don't think it'll change drastically from last cycle's which was the lowest it's ever been?
  19. Yup, just wish there was a way to verify whether this is being implemented
  20. I believe UofA's definition of full-time is 3 courses, so your two terms will be included
  21. So nothing's changed
  22. Since the application cycle is opening soon, I decided to give them a call to get more information. They said they still don't know what they are doing with GPA, and it is "unlikely" we will know soon. They don't even know if they are still dropping a year with lowest marks; kinda makes it hard to plan.
