    Interview Invites 2018/2019

    They are probably using the same algorithm as they've done with post interview composite score. In order to be considered for admission you need to pass the interview/casper, which entails not being below x number of SDs from the mean (I think it was 2 for the interview), and if you do pass, you get ranked along with other applicants. So most people who got rejected didn't get high enough composite score, but some get weeded out prior to that point if their casper/interview score is too low.

    Interview Invites 2018/2019

    It's all send at the same time, it's just that the date on the portal (late december) doesn't match the date when these decisions are actually released (early jan)
  3. I don't see what difference that makes since there's no cut off. I have a feeling 0.04 gpa won't make or break your app
  4. It'll count. It's just an inefficient way of making yourself more competitive. You'll get like a 0.04 boost of cgpa for a year worth of A+s. 1 casper prompt could probably offset that.
  5. After opening via Google Drive I see it. Yeah, looks like the note doesn't mean anything.
  6. This is interesting. Was that note a comment inside the pdf? I don't seem to have it. Wonder if this has anything to do with how close an applicant is to the expected MCAT cut offs.
  7. His GPA might be favored by AMCAS grade conversion. Might have an ok shot at USMD. I wouldn't retake the MCAT since you're not trying to meet a specific cut off. Going from 514 to lets say 519 isn't gonna do anything for you Canada-wise, and will only help you marginally for the states since it seems that they look at all of the attempts. I'd consider special year for UWO, which is actually what i'm doing myself.
  8. Liked my answers for the first 2 questions on most prompts, but got cut off/unable to expand on the third one way too many times. Had only about 4-5 prompts where I gave complete, well developed answers for all questions.

    What did you use to edit your essays? When I entered that stuff in Chrome it would adjust the font to fit the text box.
  11. Western is out, so is queens most likely. You could apply to Mac, but the odds are low. I'd wait for next cycle and deal with mcat asap.
  12. It's below their average, but not by a huge margin. I'd apply
  13. their average is slightly below 129. 128 is a very reasonable score to apply with, unless your cGPA is very low.
