    Grad students 2018?

    Based on what information? Be careful of contributing to misinformation. As per UofT Website: One confidential letter of reference from your graduate supervisor* submitted to OMSAS. This letter must be accompanied by the Graduate Supervisor Form. Graduate supervisors must submit the letters online. Please access the Referees section of your OMSAS application to arrange to send the Graduate Supervisor Form and letter request to your graduate supervisor. This letter must be received by OMSAS by October 2, 2017. This letter should include details of your: (expected) graduate degree completion date research work academic capability scholarly productivity/scholarly potential *Your graduate supervisor’s letter of reference must be provided in addition to the three letters of reference sent to OMSAS, even if your supervisor wrote one of those three letters (reference letters are viewed independently of the graduate supervisor’s letter). Your graduate supervisor’s letter is not a personal letter of reference and instead must focus on your performance in the graduate program. It should not include reference to non-academic activities. Please have your supervisor identify this letter in the header as ‘Additional Letter for Graduate Applicant’. Applicants who do not provide details of their degree completion date will not be assessed.

    Grad students 2018?

    but evaluated in the grad pool or evaluated in the undergrad pool? So unclear how they might measure productivity in the absence of a first author pub.... do we think the supervisor's additional letter is high value? :/

    McMaster: GPA, CARS, CASPER. Ace two. Dont listen to haters. Mac posts the frequency of individuals with each CARS score that are accepted. Take a look. Keep in mind that lower scores probably have higher GPA and Casper. Not to mention, other schools have weighted formulas that may benefit you. And nobody has seen your ECs. So seriously, ignore haters.

    2017 Queen's Waitlist Poll

    probably related to Western's strict 130 CARS cut off last year.

    Good MCAT, low CARS

    not sure... but doesnt queen's have a sequential process with cut offs?

    Good MCAT, low CARS

    we are practically MCAT twins - and i just wanted to say, I understand the pain of considering a rewrite because of 126 CARS. Good luck to you!
  11. any idea how 'satisfactory' is defined? Or whether the degree needs to be defended by the time of application?
  12. in province at Manitoba? Rock the MCAT. keep applying every year while you work on your GPA. Remember, there will always be applicants with high GPAs and lower MCATs, so if you can rock the MCAT I dont see why you wouldnt have a solid chance!

    Low GPA, Chances?

    the problem is that if you are below the cutoff for the cycle, you wont even receive a full file review. Your only chance is if something in your AEE resonates with them and they give you special consideration for some reasons. But selection for full file review is, unfortunately, purely numerical (from what I can tell).

    Status Pending?

    mine says 'not received' ... is that what everyone else sees? or should i be worried?

    Academic CV

    Any idea who evaluates this component? Who assesses the value of our stated productivity? Is it someone with experience in the field? A student?
