    Pakoon reacted to erythrocyte in Western interview invites/regrets 2019   
    I very much doubt 1 single individual read all 8 of your essays. It was likely divided among 8 people, with the average of your responses being taken as your final score. This is how it works in CASPer, for UoT, MMI, etc. 
    The admissions office of every school has the right to change their admission criteria from one year to the next. Western is not unique in this circumstance. To be honest, I actually admire Western for changing their criteria to allow character elements to shine through compared to the archaic method of using only GPA and MCAT. As I mentioned to you before in a previous post, possessing a good MCAT or GPA, while important, are not the sole factors that determine whether or not someone is good enough for med school.
    IMO, focus on your other interviews at those Ivy schools. Perhaps take a little bit of time to reflect. Likening yourself to a 'Syrian refugee' screams to me that your line of thinking needs to come down a notch.

    Would you agree it's difficult if not impossible to paint any group with a single brush? Similarly you can't place any profession on a pedestal, really. There are good, bad, virtuous and morally depleted people everywhere. People are complicated. They are not defined by any one thing, whether that be their profession, ethnicity, gender or background. You have to be happy about that, really, but it just means that you have to take the bad with the good.
    We can try to hold any group of people or person to a standard, but it cannot be such a shock that our ability to do so isn't robust.

    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
