  1. So my lease ends on august 31st. But with the coronavirus, I've moved out of my student house. I lost my summer job because of this whole outbreak, so I cant afford to pay rent. I'm not able to find a sublet either because summer school is online now. I've tried talking to my landlord, but he is not willing to end my lease early. I guess my question is, what should I do, and what would happen if I just don't pay rent? Thanks for taking the time to read this and any advice will be appreciated!
  2. I would assume the one they sent is more up to date. Did u get ur interview package by email? or do u mean like an actual physical package? i still havent gotten mine lol...
  3. Anyone wanna meet up at McMaster University to practice for interviews? (specifically for ottawa)
  4. Yup, got an email at noonish but dw they probably sent them in waves
  5. Is there anyone who goes to MCMASTER UNI and would like to prep together for the Ottawa interview? PM if youre interested!
  6. Hey guys, I know they make you turn the webcam on during the casper test. When I read the scenarios/watch the videos, they wont be there when i answer the questions. So am i allowed to jot notes down? Thanks!
  7. I was wondering what ottawa looks at before and after interviews? I heard it's gpa, abs, and caspar but does anyone know which is weighted the most? thanks!
  8. LOL i hope ure being sarcastic ... sorry but this is my first time writing the caspar so i really dont know what they want
  9. Hey guys! For casper, would it be alright to use short forms like "u", "ur", "r", etc? Thanks!
  10. tysm for ur reply! so if i have one from a prof (taught me in a class), another from a prof (volunuteered in her lab), and a last one from the safety officer in a hospital (helped him with his research), that would be fine right?
  11. Would someone who supervised me for a research project count as a "non-academic reference"? My research project focuses on finding a better road signs, so my referee can definitely comment on advocacy... Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi everyone! Can someone who has gotten in/is knowledgable please help me out! I just emailed my referees and they have agreed to write a letter for me. Question is, what information should i give them to ensure a strong letter? I was thinking my transcript for sure, but what else can I send them? Thank you so much!
  13. Hi Guys! I have a few questions about the 4 personal essays and 3 ABS statements: 1. I know we should use personal examples in the 3 ABS statements, but what about for the 4 personal essays? 2. For the 3 ABS statements, would it be better to focus on 1/2 clusters for each statement or include all 4 clusters in all 3 statements? THANK YOU
  14. ohhh ok that makes sense. tysm!! i was so confused cause this is my first cycle applying LOL
  15. Thanks for ur reply! Quick question, what if my publication doesn't have a DOI? Like I worked on this research where I wrote a report. And this other research I did, I had an abstract.
  16. It says on OMSAS under research: "indicate the type of publication: paper, abstract and presentation at a scientific meeting etc., accepted or published with a reference; submitted or in preparation" 1. what do they mean by "with a reference"? Do i have to include a link to the publication? 2. and what if it is in preparation? would i need a reference then? 3. what if i have no publications for a research i did, should i still include that research but put n/a in publication or would that look bad? THANK YOU
  17. ohh ok lol i thought they expected more. Thanks so much for ur help!
  18. Hi guys! On OMSAS, we're given 100 characters to write about whether the employment/EC/volunteer is full time or part time, and during the summer or academic year. Is there really that much to write about other than for instance "full time, during summer"? What else r we supposed to include? Thanks
  19. that sucks! would u reccomend eating a snack during the 10min breaks then? im kinda scared ill go over the 10min... lol
  20. Hey guys! Does anyone know if the timer will keep going when the 10min/30min breaks r up? I did the aamc FL last year and u had to click "next" even after the break was over. But this year, the timer just keeps going. Has anyone taken the real mcat.. what was is like? Also, for those who have taken the mcat already, would u recommend eating during the 10min breaks? I get hungry pretty quickly lol but idk if 10min is enough for signing in/out, going to the washroom, and a snack? Thanks!
  21. Hey everyone, just wondering what is the lowest CARS score that you've seen someone with get into Mac med? (say a person has a close to 4.0 GPA) Thanks!
