  1. Are you applying for paid or volunteer opportunities? It's easier to get a volunteer opportunity if you really want some research experience under your belt, alot of places are desperate for free labour. Emailed a major research institute/hospital attached to my school and got a response & was interviewed within a week. Paid positions are harder to get, I was able to get a paid position for this summer but I highly believe that was because of my volunteer research experience (only 3 months so far) + I had previously volunteered for the organization hosting the research for 2+years

  4. legal action been done multiple times and does not lead to much but your name being tarnished! although painful, the school reserves their right to make admission changes https://www.macleans.ca/education/post-graduate/medical-school-rejection-violated-my-charter-rights/?utm_source=macleans&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=recirc&utm_content=tag_list
  5. I think the main problem here is that because of the lack of transparency it's hard to "identify why"

  7. for conditional acceptance based on one conditional year. is acceptance/waitlist position only based on GPA of the conditional year or do they factor in the part GPA of the current year. like say hypothetically someone had a lower gpa 3.74 on the conditional year but a 3.9 on the current year. would their post-interview rank be based off 3.74 and the updated first term marks?

    OSAP CHANGES FOR 2019-2020

    the only tuition decrease happening is making student fees (for student unions, bus/gym and other services) optional so that's merely a $300 decrease. This is terrible news

    Taking a break...

    i knew about Queens, Dal and Western but not the others. can someone please confirm the schools with 2-year focus and the conditions? because U of A & U of C seems more like 3 years
  13. honestly better of studying on your own, there are great online resources & if you really need some help better of getting a tutor focusing on your weak spots than 2 grand on a prep course. - from a psych major doing that right now. the MCAT subredit should be your best friend.
