  1. lol, that's how we kill time! worry about UT apps.
  2. Agreed. If relationships are good and she can get a positive letter, I'd say ask the supervisor.

    Title Edited

    In our forum rules, we clearly state that we will not allow postings that target ethnic groups and are considered hate-speech. This thread can be considered such a posting. I do not think the original poster intended to cause harm, but this thread will only result in a debate that will enrage forum members. While we allow healthy debates, I do not forsee this leading to anything good and have closed the thread.
  4. That helps my nerves lol. I have a dream about U of T every single night right now, I need a life. lol
  5. Just a reminder, we're trying to keep this thread stats-oriented. I've deleted some posts to keep the thread clean. For discussion about interviews, please see here.
  6. Man, I hear ya. Thank God I'm drowning in work, at least that helps a bit... but worrying about U of T is distracting! Every time my e-mail sound chimes on my blackberry my heart drops!
  7. I need to keep my mind off of this and stay focussed on my work!! AHHH!
  8. I'm wondering what kind of updates I could add, I don't have any new papers submitted or anything at the moment... last time I told them I was preparing a paper (still am) and writing my thesis (still am!)... I just really like their school and want to go there! Maybe I'll give them a call first, and then in like 3-4 weeks, send the next update. The adcom meets every 6-8 weeks and I know they met end of January, so March looks like the next round.
  9. Sorry, let me be more clear, graduate course grades carry much more weight in a course-based program. I'm not entirely sure about this second part though, I was thinking that one B+ won't necessarily be looked at very badly here if all the other grades are fine because the overall GPA/avg will probably still be okay. I could be wrong though, maybe you need an A- in everything then in a course-based program. Not sure though.
  10. I'm on the "out of area alternate list" at UVM... I have sent two letters of interest (one in December, one in January)... would it be desperate-sounding if I sent another one later this month or early March? I heard their committee likes people who show interest in the school. I think I may call them to inquire about apps, one day when I'm not in the lab till the sun comes up again.
  11. My transcript may or may not have been too late. When I sent it, I think the mark was there in the one class I've finished so far... (at least I'm praying it was), otherwise, they'll have to decide without seeing any of my master's grades (I'm in a thesis-based program). I don't know why I'm even worrying about this, I have all but given up hope already... Guess, we'll see.
  12. It depends. A B+ in a thesis-based grad program will probably negatively affect you. Usually, the minimum you can get in a course without failing is a B- or so, in many programs. However, they are more lenient if it is a course-based master's program.
  13. Deborah has said before that an A- would not put you at a disadvantage.
  14. U of T is so great for keeping us in the loop though!
  15. You guys are nuts! Probably as nuts as I am though because I'm so nervoussss. Best of luck to everybody. lol @ the food speculators
  16. Great information everyone! Great posts. Does anyone know how beneficial it is to do electives in the city you are interested in getting a residency in during carms?
  17. Do you guys know if it's possible to set-up electives in Canada at most US schools?
  18. I don't know how they can make those claims given the amount of students we lose to the US every year, our aging population, and the number of doctors who will retire over the next decade... Do you actually think the shortage of specialists will be gone in 3 years?? That's BS in my opinion.

Man, I was really hoping for AECOM. This sucks. The waitlist letter says "I am happy to inform you that..." and then tells you that you're waitlisted. Sigh. This week all I've been getting is bad news and stress!
  21. You know, it would be kind of nice if they posted "minimum cutoffs" but also had an excerpt saying "meeting the minimum cutoffs will not guarantee an interview spot" or something like that. At least then we'd have some sort of idea... anyway. I think I've lost hope, but it'd be nice if it could be final... sigh.
