    Check under Student Center to see if you also have an offer there. If so, that probably means that the offers are legit.

    What explains this discrepancy? Does the funding model in Quebec reward those specialties more than in the ROC?

    FAQ: What are my chances?

    Only American schools take into account trends in GPA. Canada is very formulaic; your GPA is your GPA.

    Next steps?

    I would consider retaking the MCAT. For the schools you listed, only UBC and Dal assess overall MCAT competitively, and both only look at your best score anyway. A higher CARS will increase your chances at Mac and make you eligible for Western and Albertan schools. Are you eligible for the weighting formula at U of T? With 4 years under your belt, you could drop the grades of four credits, which is huge.
  9. The MCAT doesn't matter for Toronto as long as you meet the cutoffs. And he would have written that regrets post after having received his new score. I can see how one could make that mistake.
  10. Yes, that new MCAT score, with the 128 CARS, opens many new doors. You can now apply to Calgary and Alberta, you meet the cutoffs for Western, and you are in the competitive range for Mac (given you smash CASPer).

    Which menu is it? I'm looking at the supplementary application for medicine, and I can't see a "Documents" tab.
  13. One year of solid performance will give you a GPA that meets the cutoffs for Western and Queen's. You would have to improve your MCAT, though---are you SWOMEN? Since you have a PhD, you are considered IP for UBC. Calculate your GPA using UBC's formula to see where you stand.
