  1. Received my ranking this morning and filled out the ranking form sometime in the fall! Was hoping to receive a ranking for casper but oh well I'm pretty sure I didn't do too hot... OOP for McGill seems really tough, was screened out in the pre-screen section and ranked 103 out of 228 apps GPA: 3.98
  2. Just received the offer a few hours ago, will be declining! Good luck guys
  3. haven't received an offer yet and I'm not thinking too deeply into it...I confirmed my timestamp and gpa!
  4. Result: Accepted VFMP (waitlist) Geography: OOP Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Timestamp: 7:58am (BC time) AGPA: ~91% ECs: see previous posts. MCAT: 516 Interview: felt like I really fumbled through a couple of stations and got cut off at a few before I had a chance to say what I wanted to say. The rest may have been average to above average but I also am not a good judge of myself. Year: Masters (last year) Congrats to everyone you should be so proud of yourselves!
  5. Result: Accepted (Good waitlist at 7:37 AM) Stream: English wGPA: 3.97 CASPer: not good enough for Mac, good enough for UofA (thought I did ok). Didn't do as much prep as I would have liked, but did reflect a lot over my personal experiences and naturally have a fast typing speed. ECs: extensive, diverse, and long-term. Interview: honestly I thought that I had blown my chance with uOttawa given that I was very anxious and scattered throughout my interview and it really showed in my responses. I felt like I wasn't able to show them my best self. My interviewers often gave me confused looks despite being a friendly panel, and I answered some questions very awkwardly. I felt really bad about my interview and cried as soon as it was over. I guess this shows that how you perceive yourself in your interviews isn't an accurate portrayal of how others see you. Year: Masters (last year) Waiting on UofC and UBC, and will likely remove myself from the waitlist. Good luck everyone
  6. Stream: EN Time You Received E-mail: 7:38 AM "Created" Time: 7:37:35 AM GPA: 3.97 Good waitlist
  7. Also good waitlist for the English stream, emailed created at 7:37AM
  8. Result: Accepted!! Geography: IP GPA: 3.97 MCAT: 516 (wrote 3 times because my cars score was 124 the first two times) Degree: MSc EC: Extensive, diverse, and long-term. Many of my volunteering and extracurricular activities had hundreds of hours because I had started them at the start of my undergraduate degree 4-6 years ago. I really focused on including activities that meant a lot to me personally even if the roles didn't sound impressive, also sprinkled in my interests and hobbies. Interview: I felt like I rambled incoherently for 30 minutes and wasn't sure if I connected with anyone... Nonetheless I tried to be my best self and show off my passion for medicine. In total shock I never thought I'd ever make one of these posts. This is my third application cycle, first application to the UofA and I really didn't think I would get in this year. I'm overjoyed!! To those that didn't get the response they were hoping for I've been where you are and understand how you feel. I used that time after my second rejection to reflect over my cycle, start my masters, travel, and pursue other interests outside of medicine. I think it's important to reflect on your application cycle, see where you could have improved, and talk to people outside of medicine. Give it your best shot, you've got this!
  9. have the button, don't see anything for Ottawa
  10. Status: Rejection Time Stamp: 7:29 pm, March 18 Location: IP Stream: English cGPA/wGPA: 3.94/3.97 MCAT: above cutoffs Current year: Masters, last year ECs: Extensive research experience (conference presentations & 1 pub), long term volunteering with diverse vulnerable populations, hospital volunteering in the NICU, mental health advocacy, and leadership roles as a club exec. Many academic, research and volunteer awards. Worked as a teaching assistant, and peer mentor. Also included some activities that I enjoy like running and yoga. I spent a lot of time thinking about my essays and not enough time writing. Overall I'm proud of the essays that I submitted. Just had one friend look them over. It's my second time applying to UofT, second rejection and I'm honestly not sure what they're looking for but glad for finally getting closure. Good luck to those of you that received interviews!
  11. Nice knowing ya UofT, just got my R! It was nice stressing out together may we meet again on the other side.
  12. Still waiting for my R...lol To everyone that received rejections today I'm sorry this isn't the result that you were hoping for, I know you'll all make amazing doctors!
  13. I'm absolutely positive that they've already finalized invites and rejections, not even sure why they feel the need to prolong the process any further...
