    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Just call them when their office opens today. They are very helpful.
  9. You will get an email on your university of Alberta Gmail account
  10. You have a Gmail account for applications with the same login info as your bear tracks account
  11. 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.
  12. Invite/Rejection: Invite Time Stamp: January 29, 5:36pm EST Location: IP Stream: English wGPA: 3.91 Current year: Masters ECs: Average - leadership positions, some research with no publications, diverse interests, some healthcare related work experience Casper: Second time doing so it was all right. Prepared for it for a few weeks.

    Not 100% certain but from what I was told the medical school recalculates gpa using the first semester marks. I'd assume it is for the purposes of interview decision
