    Third Year PHPY Courses

    Hey nocturnes, As a person from Ontario, I wouldnt be too worried about getting a perfect raw 4.0. This is because other than Mcmaster, all schools either drop your lowest grades (Uoft), take the best of 2 years (Queens and Western) or give greater weight to later years (Ottawa). I know plenty of people who have gotten ontario interviews without perfect 4.0s. If you are sitting on a 4.0 after 2 years, you have a great shot at getting both UofT and Ottawa interviews. PM me if you have more questions about Ontario schools but getting a single 3.9 is not even close to a bad thing!

    Summer courses

    Yup they do, I asked the same question to adcoms pre-cycle and they confirmed that they do.
  3. Haha wow good to see I'm not the only one alone on this. Canada post tracking stated it arrived in SK today and I asked the CoM if they received it. They said it was still not received so that worried me a bit, but if they're generally slow about it then I feel more relieved. Only thing is that my deadine is to have it in by May 28th, so I'm hoping that they will have received it by then. Does anyone know how strict they are about this deadline? And @Koopatroopa I totally feel you, I can't wait for August to come!
  4. Hey guys, just an update: I've been accepted off the waitlist for Saskatoon campus. Time stamp was 12:35 pm EST. Geography: OOP This is a week after getting waitlisted on May 15th, and I will be accepting the offer. I am incredibly excited to meet you guys in August! This is definitely the proudest moment of my life so far. I've written the MCAT 4 times (with a void), I'm 2 years out of school, this is my 2nd cycle, and my only med interview ever was this year at USask. These last couple of years have been a real slog with constant doubt nagging at me about whether or not I could do it, but I have to say that all of that was 100% worth it for this moment. To everyone who is still trying and who is sure that medicine is their calling, don't give up. It will eventually work out. There were many times when I wanted to give up but 2 things kept me going: 1) my profound respect for the work that doctors do and 2) the incredible support I received from my friends and family. I was not always confident in my abilities but this is all I've ever wanted to do so I just kept my head down and surrounded myself with positive people. Good luck to those who remain on the waitlisted or those who are still trying; I know what it feels like and it really sucks, but I promise you that it is all worth it in the end. Keep going!

    Waitlist 2018

    Why the 25th? Is that when the deadline is to decline?

    Waitlist 2018

    Are you IP or OOP? I think about 20-30 are waitlisted for OOP, but not sure about IP.

    How is everyone doing?

  8. Haha I quadruple checked to see if I got trolled but the email seems pretty official so you guys should be hearing back soon. Good luck!!
  9. Thank you! I really appreciate it, I hope so. Have you heard back yet? Forum has been surprisingly quiet
  10. Just got the email Status: Waitlisted Geography: OOP MCAT: 521 (128 cars) Time stamp: 11:58 am EST May 15th 2018 Interview: felt like it didn't go so well immediately after, but over time accepted that I may have done alright. Hard to say how it went now but hoping for the best as I will be accepting if I get the offer.

    How is everyone doing?

    @King74 @Koopatroopa both of you guys srsly good luck! Seen both of u guys a lot on this forum so very excited the day has finally arrived. For myself I've coincidentally packed my morning with stuff to do; volunteering and then getting a good full body workout in. At around the time were supposed to hear back I'll be tutoring so hopefully all that stuff will help me cope with the weight of the wait.

    How is everyone doing?

    Pretty nervous about it, managed to fall asleep last night but kept waking up from dreams about it. No matter what the result may be tomorrow, I'm just excited that I'll finally get closure about it. Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

    References contacted 2017-18 cycle

    I am under this impression as well. Also doesn't make sense to me why they would only contact some of the interviewees that passed and not others... The phone call is a red flag rule out process, and it should be applied in an unbiased way to all interviewees that they are considering to accept.
