    The struggle is real. We should let them know we don’t need physical copy. Just send us the frigging email

    Yeah I don’t get it, all they have to do is send us a one word email : yes or no... I couldn’t care about the logistics and what not, that can come in a few weeks for all I care

    That means our fates are already sealed, they are probably just dealing with logistics

    I think that this thread's name should be changed and that we post final decisions on the stickied acceptance/rejections thread

    No problem! 
    Just note that no one except AAMC can really simulate what you will see on test day, because by definition - they are not AAMC. Thus, try to diversify your resources as much as possible, because each company has its X amount of test writers that have Y biases or Z understanding of the MCAT. Though they third party companies are definitely getting better and some companies hit the mark more than others, try to diversify. 
    I did some of Kaplan, Altius, Nextstep, TPR, Mcgrew hill, Testing solutions, Examkrackers and QWorld. Highly recommend you do the same!

    I think it’s a hard question to answer accurately- what if you are doing one “EC” but it has a lot of impact, you are learning a lot from it and or it takes a lot of time?
    While it’s good to compare yourself to other applicants to know your chances / competitiveness, you also need to be able to not dwell on it too much. If you feel that you can do more with yourself or time, take on the extra challenges or experiences. However to answe your question, I think it’s fair to say that at least 10 hours a week of EC is a good start, but again everyone is different and comes from different circumstances...

    yeah to be honest that is the one part of what they are doing that never made sense to me. If you have 100% sure someone is not going to full review, or somehow doesn't hit a cut off then I am not really sure why wouldn't let those people off the hook. The stress and possible expense/time for prep could be then redirected to improving the application.

    No idea but there is a little bit still in Fredericton. Normally about the same amount in both places around this time. I would say it will be gone by next week if we keep having this kind of weather.

    The only real disadvantage people invited later have is all this energy wasted on stress with the delay. Don't let it impact your current year GPA etc (you may need it).
