  1. Over the years, the company has gotten more transparent with their processes. I've heard the same thing, but after watching the webinar recently (https://takecasper.com/2018/09/casper-information-session-for-canadian-professional-health-sciences-applicants/) I can't seem to find any reference to this so I assume it isn't true, or at least was discontinued at one point? I would definitely love for it to be still in practice though!
  2. From your story, I'm not optimistic. I started a second degree as well and had email correspondence with them, I asked if it possible to be considered even in the case that I stop doing the degree part way or dropped /changed it asap and they weren't flexible.
  3. Piggy backing off the many other topics in this forum now, if anyone living on campus/commuting here wants to form a group sometime please let me know

    Early interview study group?

    I'm bogged down with school work right now but would love to join you all after October!
  5. 3.89 and 515- 127/128/131/129 considering a rewrite for Western alone. I had interviews this year but I realized that my pre interview scores are quite low for the schools I was given because of my lack of ECs (barely made the interview cutoff for Calgary). Western and Mac are my best shots realistically and next cycle I'm only applying to Mac Western and UofT after reflecting on other factors in my life. Any alternative opinions?

    Thoughts On The Nextstep 108 Passages?

    0.679245, 0.660377, 0.698113, 0.641509, 0.811321 Just dug up my scores for the 5 tests that I did do for NS. I ranged 128-130 on AAMC and ended up on the lower end of things in reality. Personally I think its really helpful to use material that keeps punching you in the gut.

    Uoft Interview Discussion 2017

    Does anyone know if they will send formal rejections in the same time frame that the final group's invites are given, or is silence their means of rejection?

    Queens Interview Invites/regrets 2017

    Result: Regrets Time Stamp: 5:18 pm EST GPA: 3.94 Year: 4th year UG MCAT: 515 (128 CARS, 131 B/B, 127 P/S, 129 C/P) EC's: Below Average to Average Geography: IP Possibly no love from Ontario this cycle?
  14. Hi, I was recently invited to interview at Calgary as an OOP and was wondering if you had any recommendations on sources I could use to learn about the Albertan healthcare system/political issues relevant to health. Also what would you consider to be some controversial/hot debate topics going on in the province right now? I've subscribed to a news outlet already but was just a bit curious if you all had any words of guidance before I dove into my readings. Thanks for the help!
  15. Result: Invite Time Stamp: Jan 24 - 4:30pm EST Interview Date: N/A wGPA: 3.96 Year: BSc. 4th year MCAT: 515 ECs: Co-op placement, Club Leaderhip x2, Top 20 highest GPA award,Languages, Vocals, Research Volunteering Geography : OOP This was a huge surprise to me, after 3 straight rejections I wasn't expecting anything for this cycle. My EC's aren't particularly strong, but I think what made them stand out (if they did and weren't completely carried by my GPA/MCAT) were the way I tried tying them to my personal development. I didn't expect to get this invite at all even when I applied, but I'm beyond happy the way this played out. I got a score of 20 for NAQ from UBC if its of any reference to you all, by the way. Best of luck to everyone!
