    Extremely lost, What to do next?!

    I have no money, even with loans and selling my family's house I cannot afford it. Plus I heard that residency chances except for US MDs are very low as well
  2. Hi guys Do you guys think it's problematic for admissions if like 70-80%of my non-school extra-circulars are office-related. Like data analyst for research labs, customer service, in-office client care and administrative tasks for different non-proft organizations working like seniors and low-income individuals. However, they are office related. I'll probably try to differentiate them as much as possible but there's just so much you can do. Does it matter at all??
  3. you shouldn't pay for 3rd party CASPER answers, it might mess up your way of thinking. Discuss your answers with your parents or friends to talk about it instead and the reasoning will come naturally. For example, If the scenario is about life or death/safety-related stuff, you should always be forceful in describing your answer, and etc.
  4. I think I'm probably in the middle, but does anyone have any clues? Thanks!! GPA: 3.88 CARS: 127

    im interested, how does it work
  6. In my university in a open room, where profs and grad students would walk by and you'd present and get judged, etc. (like a science fair)
  7. what about if you just presented a poster+abstract to members of faculty in your Department, but not a formal scientific conference? Can you place it in 2 categories as well?
  8. Hi guys I'm rewriting the MCAT this friday and I don't know how my MCAT (esp CARS) will turn out. Do you know if its okay/allowed (or works) to submit your MCAT twice, once before the score release, once after? Thanks

    Casper availability?

    damn, would you say it'll be full for oct 15 and 27 if I submit my app on the deadline on oct 2?
  10. Does anyone know if Casper have space limitations/waitlists and stuff like that? I want to reserve but unfortunately I can't do that till I actually submit OMSAS, which may take a while. Thanks!
  11. Hi everyone, I'm currently going to 4th year and am trying to figuring out how to planning my ECs for the next year or two. My GPA is competitive i think cGPA 3.85, Uoft wGPA 3.95 e.g. and MCAT is barely ok for verbal (126) but I can't risk retaking it for now. In my undergrad, have only done 2 long-term volunteering as well as a brief volunteering session for a clinical trial last summer (like 20hrs) and a summer job as receptionist, rest of it is just simple clubs and some hobbies with friends. I plan to send more emails for research during august, but don't expect too much (one prof messaged back but never replied afterwards for example). So now I have no idea what to do next besides searching on volunteer toronto mindlessly or completing way too time consuming applications. Which areas would be best to volunteer where only a resume and interview at most is required? Which should I do for the upcoming gap year? Hospitals positions take way too long, (e.g. 3.5 weeks for TB testing, only to find out there's no shifts). No summer positions though, since my family forces me to go back to my home country every two years and stay for 2 months+ Any feedback is appreciated Thanks
