I am in shock and cannot believe that I have finally reached my goal of getting into NOSM. For those that were not accepted today, do not give up—your time will come. For those on the waitlist, I wish you all the best of luck, and to those already accepted congratulations classmates!!
  2. Good luck to all those doing interviews tomorrow and those early April in Sudbury! I don't know if things were just easier this year, but the questions were definitely more forgiving than last years!
  3. this happened to me this year too... the address was my parents address that I had used the previous year
  4. CanoeingEpidemiologist, Your ECs/ accomplishments are exactly what I would expect for a NOSM learner--really wishing you all the best and to never give up on your dreams!

  6. I know the individual that got in on Wednesday... I am still unsure if someone dropped to attend another school, or completely opted out of their seat. Regardless, there is always hope!
  7. I saw this on their website only yesterday and was waiting for a trend to start. Personally, I think its the fairest option to have all undergraduate courses counted towards the GPA, however, I do also like the system that OttawaU has with their weighted GPA (most recently being more heavily weighted). However, I do not think that a students GPA should suffer as a result of 1 or 2 years of a poor academic performance early in their undergraduate career. For those that have completed and shown their academic potential through another undergraduate program or upward trend of an exceptional GPA, I think that speaks more on academic potential/ability. It seems that NOSM will still be giving the 0.2 GPA bonus, however, I have also caught wind that NOSM may also be implementing some mandatory science classes (although this is not documented anywhere).
  8. Wishing all those accepted and off the waitlist all the best! Rural_roots, I am praying for the both of us that next year is our year!
  9. rural_roots, yes I am also on the waitlist (I have been a lurker for quite some time, but the past couple of months I have avoided this forum as it was making me crazy with anxiety!). I finally gave in and made an account yesterday! I have also been rooting for you all the way, as I cannot express how much respect I have for you given your progress with NOSM all these years (really hoping this is your year!). As for some updated waitlist information, a co-worker of mine was accepted off the waitlist yesterday (No FB, so it would not have added to the group) as well as I know of another 2 nursing students who were accepted Monday. Fingers crossed for those of us still hoping for that email!
  10. Sorry I would make a new post, but I don't know how to.... Does anyone know if NOSM is able to give feedback to those that were waitlisted or rejected as to how they are able to improve their application for the next cycle if they are not admitted?
