    MCAT Cutoffs 2018/2019

    Often times the cut-offs are posted a week or 2 after interviews come out, using the invite forums or the emails, we find out what it is before western updated their website.
  2. So it was on the next waxing crescent moon aka the 10th, case closed boys.
  3. We are getting close, but you forgot to factor in the lunar cycles 2014 (Jan 24) was the last quarter visible at 47% 2015 (Jan 21) was a new moon visible at 2% 2016 (Jan 13) was a waxing crescent visible at 18% 2017 (Jan 18) was the last quarter visible at 64% 2018 (Jan 10) was a new moon visible at 2% Hmm, I'm starting to see a correlation here It's going to be in the next waxing crescent moon, so the 10th or 11th lol

    GAME CHANGER, you have really good odds of getting an interview if those two years are 3.7

    Congrats on the dope MCAT score, and welcome to the waiting game. If this was pre-ABS western, we could make a better guess at your chances, last year's CARs cut-off was 129 for non SWOMEN, and each of the 2 years must be 3.7, not the collective average. At this point we don't know how they decide who gets an invite, and I guess all we can do is wait.
  6. Honestly inspirational, I'm rooting for you, go out there and make us all proud!
  7. I tried to find it for a solid half hour, no luck. To summarize it was an elderly man saying the doc fixed his eyes so he could watch his granddaughter play hockey, and he was glad she went through 15 years of schooling to be competent enough to give him the care he needs.
  8. So that ad was about that LMAO, I thought it was kinda randomly targeted (like why would the OMA use ophtho as a poster specialty). well, that explains a lot more now, thanks!

    FAQ: What are my chances?

    if you meet the course load, you should get an interview at Western!

    Interview Invites

    Each school is different in the states, some schools email back saying you didn't get an interview, others don't. In terms of interviews, some friends of mines have already gotten some interviews already!

    This Is Insane

    GPA > MCAT > ECs ( not a law, just a general rule of thumb IMO). If you're killing the game enough to land an interview, it won't matter how much publications they have. If you interview well you should be fine!

    OMSAS GPA Calculations

    My summary length is 29, but on the detailed summary it's 38. Should I contact omsas?

    OMSAS GPA Calculations

    Quick question, it says for my years it has a length of 9, but I know I have taken 10 course in the year ,is it not counting my pass/fails in that value?. ( Applied to western so I wanna know if I'm screwed)
  20. when did you submit your ABS, I wonder if it has something to do with new cut-offs, or is it being marked in order?
  21. Personal opinion is that it's a trial year, and it will only be used to look for red flags. Another guess is that it's there for insurance reasons, this way they don't have to guarantee anyone anything, even if they meet cut-offs
  22. It looks like you're grades don't seem to be a problem, the best approach would be to call other Canadian medschools to see which ones your nursing degree would qualify for and if you hit their course load requirements. I wouldn't worry too much about prerequisites, many schools don't need them (western,queen, Mac,). But MCAT may be required. Overall, I'd see where your RN degree makes you eligible to apply, and go from there.
