  1. I haven't had any verifiers contacted yet either. Hoping it's not a bad sign.

    Interview Prep

  5. September 15th is a recommendation from OMSAS to make sure references have received the link to the form. October 1st is the deadline for submitted references: https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/omsas-dates/
  6. Hi everyone, With the new 70% cutoff for prereq courses, I need to take one half credit of orgo. I'm currently located in Halifax but I work full-time, and the only courses offered at the 2 universities here are during work hours. Does anyone know of any online courses with some kind of lab that would be acceptable for Ottawa? I really want to apply this year but don't know if there are any courses I can take!
  7. Thank you both for your response! Sorry I wasn't clear in my description! Yes, I got below 70% in gen chem and biochem, however I am above the cutoff for orgo (I have one semester with lab). I graduated a few years ago with a BSc so I would be taking these courses as a non-degree student. This would mean they wouldn't be included in my GPA, right? So if I understand correctly I would need to take one year of gen chem with lab + one semester of biochem, or any of the other combinations listed on UOttawa's website?
  8. Hi all, So, with the new 70% mark cutoffs for prerequisite science courses, I will have only one semester's worth of organic chemistry with lab. I believe this means I will need to take 3 more semesters worth of a combination of orgo/general chem/biochem. I will be applying to the English stream with a wGPA of 3.90. I applied this year and did not receive an interview invite. Is it worth taking three more courses just to be eligible to apply? My GPA is on the lower side and I work full-time, so taking 3 courses will be difficult and I'm not sure if it's worth it at this point...
