    Accepted To Masters - How To Proceed

    Sounds good! I'll send an email to all the schools today. Thanks for your help The deadline for my masters application was the last week of January! They sent out the acceptances this week. I think it depends on your program as they all have differing dates.

    Accepted To Masters - How To Proceed

    Thanks for the reply! Sorry I guess I wasn't clear. The masters program begins in September but I have to accept by April 3. Are there any repercussions if I do get into med and decline the masters later in the summer? I would think this has happened before as students apply to both med and grad school
  5. Hey everyone, I just got into a Masters program at UoT and I have to accept by April 3. Although I am so grateful for the opportunity, I also have 2 med interviews which I won't hear from till May 9. Does anyone know the policies for masters acceptance in these cases? Do I just accept this masters and when I hear from med (and if I'm luckily accepted) decline later? If this application cycle doesn't work out for med I would really like to do this masters so I'm hesitant about letting them know where they are on my priority list Thanks in advance!

    Dilemma. Opinions Needed, Please!

    If med school is the ultimate goal, I would do the undergrad and increase GPA. Sure the MPH sounds good, but it doesn't make up GPA deficit. ALL schools need a good GPA but only SOME schools give preference to graduate students (Toronto grad stream, 1% for Mac, etc).Unfortunately, undergraduate GPA is king! By doing 2 more years (and doing well on both grades and MCAT) Queen's and Western are solid possibilities! Additionally, other schools based on grade calculations. Again lots of unknowns here but over all just my 2 cents
  7. Just to clarify, I have already graduated (both 2nd and 4th aren't eligible!), thus I can't get a conditional interview. Also sorry for derailing this mods!
  8. Time Stamp: Jan. 31 at 1:55 PM Invite: No IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN: No 2YGPA: 3.69, 3.97 (only first and third year applicable due to pass/fail classes) MCAT: 515 (127/129/128/131) Didn't realize it was each individual year assessed, not the cumulative of the 2 years. Hit the MCAT cutoffs but missed GPA by 0.01. RIP Edit: For those asking, I have already graduated (2nd and 4th not eligible) thus I can't get the conditional offer

    Professional Program Course Load

    Hey! I did a professional program undergrad degree as well and there are a few things that you will have to keep in mind for different schools. First, note how many pass/fail classes (or practicums) you have in each year. The summary below assumes you have taken a full course load (pass/fail classes still count as credits) 1. McMaster: Will look at ALL classes (including summer) and will not mind your pass/fail courses or clinical practicums 2. Toronto: Does not look at summer grades. You will be eligible for weighted GPA; however, you must drop pass/fail courses first (ex. If you have 6 pass/fail courses, these will be considered your lowest grades - thus you can only drop 2 "real grades") 3. Queens: Looks at your last 2 years, or cumulative, based on what is higher. There was no problem with Queens for me regarding my pass/fail courses 4. Western: Best 2 years BUT these years MUST have ≤ 2 pass/fail courses. (ex. If your third year has 3 pass/fail courses - this year is NOT eligible). I hit their MCAT cutoffs but my first year was off by 0.01 GPA for an interview, and they were not able to consider my 2nd or 4th year due to this rule! 5. Ottawa: Weighted GPA formula (see their website). For me, since my fourth year was a clinical practicum, they calculated me as if I was a 3-year program. 6. UBC: All classes but different conversion vs. OMSAS 7. Dalhousie: Treats you as a nursing program and looks at last 20 senior marks Hope this helps! This information is based on what admissions has told me for this application cycle (2017)

    # Of Interview Invites

    Really? Isn't that a bit excessive for only 100 spots? Western only does 450 for 170 spots
  12. Hey guys, congrats to all who got an interview! Does anyone know how many invites they send out?
