  1. From the application manual: "In order for the Admissions Committee to consider graduate school marks in the overall GPA, the degree in question must be completed and conferred by June 30th, 2019. If the degree is still in progress, but in its final year, the grades will be used in the calculated GPA as described above."
  2. If you thought that was bad check out the new Alberta residency requirements: https://www.ualberta.ca/medicine/programs/md/applying/citizenship-residency "You must have physically resided in Alberta for the three years directly preceding the first day of classes of the term for which admission is sought. However, if you have left the province but have previously lived in Alberta for an accumulated period of 15 years, you will be considered a resident of Alberta."

    Alberta GPA calculation

    I believe you are referring to Calgary's application manual? UofA doesn't really have one.

    uOttawa Interview 2018 Discussion

    I had some probing but what caught me off guard more was how much they pushed me and challenged my choices. Like straight up asking me if I want to change my mind

    uOttawa Interview 2018 Discussion

    Haha I wonder if we had the same panel. Mine were cold, interrupted me and corrected me. Same feeling as you with lower GPA. No point worrying now though! It's done now, try to forget about it and focus on school/work/etc!

    June 30th Transcript

    Thank you for your prompt reply! I have a 4 year undergrad with all the prereqs completed as of May 2017. This is an 18 month course based masters program and the summer practicum is on a pass/fail basis. I would technically have a fall semester left to finish but my school is fine with me leaving for med school as I would have around 6 years to come back and complete the electives I have left on a part-time basis. Or not come back at all if I decide.
  8. Was hoping someone has been in the same situation and can offer some advice. I am currently in a course based masters program which requires a completion of a summer practicum. I will be interviewing at Ottawa however won't know the result until I would already have to start the practicum placement. The issue is, normally the practicum runs May-August but Ottawa requires all final grades by June 30th. I called them and it seems like they wont budge on that. Has anyone been in a similar situation before? Any advice appreciated.
  9. Had an invite 2 years ago and not this time although I have a higher gpa and in my opinion better ECs now. Not sure what to think of it. I'm IP, my mcat score did not change, my Casper should have been okay based on the fact that I got an interview at University of Ottawa.
  10. Just call them when their office opens today. They are very helpful.
  11. You will get an email on your university of Alberta Gmail account
  12. You have a Gmail account for applications with the same login info as your bear tracks account
  13. Last week they specifically told me on the phone that the GPAs would not get updated with first semester marks since it would take way too long.
