    Interview Invites 2018/2019

    Just the regular generic message. I’ll copy/paste below: Your application this year was unsuccessful for the following reason: Due to the competitive nature of the applicant pool this year, your application was not competitive enough to grant you further consideration It sucks. I’m gonna miss out on schools that use CASPer. It’s like they’re telling me I’m a bad person or something. But I had the opportunity to see the scenarios earlier in the day (i.e. “cheat”) but I chose not to. And I know people who do these kind of things and then get interviews and acceptances. I guess it’s not surprising that life isn’t fair lol. My chance to go to medical school is greatly reduced because I have low typing speed.

    Interview Invites 2018/2019

    Reject OOP 4.47 526 Non-rural First time applying to Manitoba. Obviously bombed CASPer. Looks like this year is gonna be a repeat of last year. Does not bode well at all for Mac and Ottawa. It is what it is I guess. The sad thing is my typing speed has gone up by 20wpm since I wrote CASPer. I'm a perfectly ethical, normal guy. I just type slow. That test is just unfair IMO. It is what it is.

    Applying tonight

    Wow, that’s good to know, thanks for letting us know because I don’t think my email said that. I just finally got it this night(I applied 3 days ago on thurs Oct 31) Also, I’m curious about the workbooks... I assume the same rule applies to them because they are incomplete without the McGill ID?
  4. Nope, but my buddy who submitted at the same time last night got his ID about an hour ago. Seems like the system is inconsistent.
  5. Ah my mistake. I would guess that means you should wait until you get your id before submitting it.
  6. Hey everyone, I called McGill today and the lady told me that as long as you submitted before the deadline tonight it's ok if you get your McGill ID after the deadline and can only upload your supporting documents on Minerva then. Just remember that the workbook is meant to be emailed so do that by tonight. Otherwise just have your other documents ready for when you get access to Minerva. At least, this is my understanding based on what the lady on the phone said

    Thank you for the quick reply According to this page (https://mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/submitting) you must submit before 9pm on deadline day so that you get your McGill ID number in time. Which is exactly what you said. Hopefully, everything goes well tomorrow without any hiccups. Thanks again
  8. No, but I'm applying tonight and want to make sure I actually get to apply. According to this page (https://mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/submitting) you must submit before 9pm on deadline day so that you get you McGill ID number in time. Hopefully you hear back soon. Keep us updated

    I don't want to submit and pay money if I won't even be able to apply. It seems unfair for them to say the deadline is Nov 1 when there is this kink in their system that makes the functional deadline earlier.

    I understand that after you submit you have to wait for them to send you credentials for your minerva account? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding the process. I am submitting my application tonight; does this mean that I won't have time to apply because it takes them a while to get back? I appreciate any quick response. Thanks
  11. Thank you very much, I actually recall reading that in the past and even telling my friend that, I just forgot for some reason. Appreciate it
  12. Thanks, I'll be sure to do that for my UofT essays (some of which are reused from last year) but I'm still wondering whether Western will be running them through turnitin.
  13. Would this be looked down, or more importantly, do they run it through turnitin and it'll look like cheating? Since we're using some of the same activities it's only natural that our descriptions of those activities will be similar. Obviously the overall essay is different because they have a different focus, but still. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows more about this issue
