  1. Guess that makes the Med building a tool box! ba sum tss
  2. Hey there, I am an RN who was lucky enough to get in this cycle. Assuming your course load was a full one throughout nursing school and eligible for Western, then your best 2 years meet the cutoff and maybe queens as well. A good MCAT score thrown on top will put you in a good place to apply to those 2 schools. I think with extracurriculars, working as an RN more than covers anything clinical EC related, anything else you have on would be a nice bonus. I also agree with @orthoooo its a weird stigma of sorts applying to medicine from nursing and you only want people who will give you stellar letters of recommendation!
  3. Thanks for the heads up TD representative!

    OMSAS reference letters stopped?!

    I mean, individual schools could still ask for references letters to be uploaded via SAM, or some other 3rd party system. I wasn't a fan of the letters when I was applying, but I can't see schools just abandoning reference letters.

  6. In my opinion no, the iPad with pen is really nice for note taking though, if that's more your style !
  7. I'd say about 30 spots left if I had to give a rough estimate. As for the waitlist as a whole, I'd like to think that this year was the smallest waitlist yet
  8. Congratulations, I'll see you there!
  9. Windsor winters on the other hand...
  10. Tuesdays off, I'm sold.
  11. Result: Accepted to Windsor campus! Timestamp: May 14 12pm 2 yr GPA: 3.81 MCAT: 126, 126, 130 (Chem/Phys, CARS, Bio) Interview: was a tough interview overall, and the panel seemed like they were rushing to finish, but leaving that room I felt like I obliterated that interview. Felt good about it up until a week ago where I started to doubt myself. Thankfully my initial thoughts were right. Geography: SWOMEN Since I only applied to one school, I will be taking this offer with open arms. Best of luck to everyone else!!!!!!

    ABS Experiences

    I wanna say no, but I can't speak for everyone.
  16. Hey, I was just wondering if anyone knows if references/verifiers are contacted pre or post interview! Thanks.

    Does anyone know if SWOMENs get a post interview advantage as well, or if its only the MCAT flexibility they get pre interview?
  18. Maybe it's a bonus towards getting an interview, the second picture says it doesn't help with admission chances.
  19. A physician, A medical student, and a community member make up the panel and score you. That score is taken by the admissions committee and compiled into a ranking list I believe.

    Abs verification

    Anyone else have a verifier contacted?

    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.
  22. So it was on the next waxing crescent moon aka the 10th, case closed boys.
  23. 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

    Chances?

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