  1. Hey, I was able to gain access to LOC and Credit Cards today. I am going to the UofA, however I provided a screenshot of the acceptance status on Beartracks (the UofA's communciation system) as well as providing a screenshot of an email from MD Admissions stating I have been matriculated after completing all the steps such as 1000$ deposit, immunizations, etc.
  2. Hey all, I have signed up for the LOC with Scotiabank in Edmonton, Alberta. It is a pretty sweet deal for 275 K with prime - 0.25% so 3.15% at the moment. In addition I am receiving 2 credit cards - one is the American Express Gold which has a great points system. The other, is the new Passport Infinite Visa which waives all foreign transaction fees which is awesome for those of us maybe traveling this summer (and beyond)! Fees are waived yearly. The only way this occurs however is if you email your schedule every year as proof of enrollment. I believe that is the confusion that may have occurred for one of the individuals in the above comments. As a student under the Scotiabank professional plan, you will be taken care of for 6+ years under this plan as long as you ensure you provide proof of enrollment annually. This includes fees waived and no need to pay back the LOC until the 2nd year AFTER residency. Hope this helps some of you out. My advisor was very helpful in explaining and expediting the process so that I could get my hands on the credit cards before my trip at the end of June. PM me if interested in getting in touch with my advisor if you are in Edmonton!
  3. Hey there, so I hope to choose Scotiabank for my LOC and the Student Professional Plan. I understand they cannot give access to LOC funds, however are we able to receive the two credit cards. They would be quite beneficial this summer for travel (especially the new Visa).

  6. Accepted IP GPA: 3.99 CARS: 129 Completed BSc last Spring. Top 10: Nothing outstanding but personal experiences and emphasized the impact and growth they provided me. Interview: Felt thrown off from the first MMI station and the 2 1/2 hour interview drained me so I felt my mind drifted by the end but something must have worked Third time applying, second time interviewing. Keep at it everyone who may have been wait-listed or unsuccessful this cycle!
  7. Will there be one, or two 10 minute 'breaks' within the MMI cycle?
  8. Hey, congrats on your perseverance and the pay off! Was wondering if you have any specific tips with regards to Mac's MMI? I realize they can throw anything at you but any tips that helped you succeed? Thanks!
  9. Not sure of the specific logistics but UofC did the above and had half the tracks start panel then switch to MMI and vice versa for the other tracks. They had roughly 80 students in one time slot.
  10. 20 min panel, 6 MMI stations (2 min planning, 8 min speaking) = 80 minutes Probably run through the MMI stations and then complete the panel.
  11. For anyone who has interviewed at Ottawa previously, is it a single panel interview? How long is the interview?
  12. Anyone have any information on number of applicants to UofO, how many OOP (english stream) invited for interview historically? Cannot find any statistics on their page. Nevermind found 2016 stats.
