  1. And do they simply ask to verify your activity (UBC does only this) or do they ask the verifier to rate the applicant or write something about them (UofA does this). TiA
  2. CASPer is open ended, they look for not only how you answer but how you interpret the question and what you decide to address. Regarding the legal/illegal thing, I asked if it's illegal or not... what are you talking about?
  3. 1. A co-worker is having relations with another member of your medical team and you know about it. When is it right to speak out and take action – and when is it wrong? 2. Is it ever okay to offer personal assistance – or your personal information – to a patient or colleague in need? 3. Is it illegal or just unethical for doctors to receive gifts from a medical rep of a pharmaceutical company?
  4. Ontario applicant here, 2 verifiers have been contacted by UofA. Oddly enough they decided to contact my brother who was a verifier for a personal hobby. They have so much other stuff to choose, it must truly be a random verification process if this is what they chose to have verified haha
  5. How sure are you that none at all were contacted?
  6. You can see your GPA on the portal. It appears they've used last year's wGPA calculating where your lowest year gets dropped. Just to be sure, though, even though it says 'Cumulative GPA', this is our weighted/adjusted GPA right? It's way too high to be my cumulative GPA haha
  7. I don't want to purchase the wrong kind of practice test.. thanks e.g. https://apetest.com/edu/display/full-length-casper-3-medicine-wo-scoring/
  8. I am thinking of buying some practice tests. Any advice appreciated
  9. Is the book still good for general ethics and creating a formula for approaching difficult scenarios? I also wonder why the UWash bioethics page is recommended. I'm saying this based on when I wrote it last year, and I am thinking about how much reading these would have helped and my instinctual answer is "not much", but I'm not sure. I feel like the best practice would be just doing practice questions. What are your thoughts?
  10. Hey man, just wanted to let you know I was in a similar boat and ended up withdrawing my app from UofC today. Sucks. but it is what it is
  11. If that was the case there would be no disadvantage to only writing 4 essays. But Western explicitly says writing 4 essays will not make you a competitive applicant.
