  1. Hi Everyone, I have applied for 3 cycles and have not yet received an interview. For the past few weeks I've been trying to reflect and see where I'm lacking and from what I can tell it's probably my ABS thats holding me back. I wanted to ask if someone can look over my ABS and give some constructive feedback. Thank you for your time.
  2. Do you when is the last day to schedule an interview?
  3. Thanks for the detailed response. With the stats you mentioned this was one of my prime motivations to go to Nova Scotia. The tough part will be to actually make the move.
  4. Hi, I wanted some advice regarding becoming IP in Nova Scotia. After another unsuccessful cycle for med schools both in Dal and Ontario, I wanted to evaluate my options. I'm considering becoming IP in Nova Scotia, I have family there and wouldn't mind working and living there (I currently live in Ontario) for the next few years.However, one of the things that is holding me back from making this move is the uncertainty, would I get in as IP at Dal Med?, would I really enjoy living there?, is it really worthwhile? My stats: cGPA: 3.54 2Yr GPA: 3.89, taking a 5th year so this could become 3.9+ MCAT: 510 (127 CARS) ECs: Standard Pre-med activities (hospital volunteering, boys and girls club, etc...), youth soccer coach, Rep soccer player, Tae Kwon Doe Instructor I understand for Ontario, my stats are just average and I really dont stand out, but from looking at the stats for Dal IP, I believe I'm within the average of the individuals admitted into Dal. This is where my dilemma is, do I take the risk of becoming IP or continue to improve as an OOP? Thank you for your time.

    OMSAS GPA Calculations

    How do you see the breakdown?
  6. Casper, I think went fairly well, much better than last year but we'll know for sure in the coming weeks.
  7. I believe im above the cut-offs for both. Yea, I checked and this is quite normal.
  8. The one where it has the status for MCAT, transcript, etc..., I haven't been able to see that for a few days now as well.
  9. For the description part of the EC where it says Type of Activity, is it fine to put it as: Individual.... or Individudal Activity..... at the start. I'm trying to save as many characters as possible but don't want to confuse the evaluators later on. Thanks.

    OMSAS confusion

    Potentially, You may want to msg OMSAS, but I heard that as long as you have the AAMC ID inputted and you release them the scores once the scores come out it should be fine. In another post, someone contacted OMSAS about mcat score release and they said that they download them in October, hopefully that will give you some estimate on when they would get it. Some my friends wrote the the last week and they're going to be doing the same. however, to clear any doubts sending a msg to OMSAS wont hurt.

    OMSAS confusion

    If you go where you can see your mcat scores on the mcat reporting site. There is tab on the top called "My reports" from the drop-down menu, there is something called send scores electronically. From that page, search "Ontario", it will have the abbreviated OMSAS spelled out, click and send scores.

    Competitive GPA?

    True, wish they were as transparent as McMaster and Western but It's all part of the game, shooting in the dark and seeing if we hit the target or not.
