    You and me both. I am sitting here refreshing my e-mail on one tab and refreshing this forum in another.

    People wouldn't call if they set a date and they were clear in their actions. The admissions office created this game...they might as well play along

    sounds logical to me

    I have heard from a friend that the admission committee meets every Monday. Do we suspect that Monday's University Closure will affect the release date of acceptance letters? This wait is killing me and leading to a lot of forum speculation (almost can't help it haha).
  6. Has anyone's application verifiers been contacted yet? I have not heard from my verifiers, and we are now approximately one month out from decision letters (forecasting March 4th). Let me know!
  7. I think March 4th. First Monday in March. Last year, decision letters came out on the 5th.
  8. I think it is a good thing if your verifiers were contacted as it feels like progress in this dreadful process. However, I am not too worried if my verifiers are not contacted. I definitely go back and forth on my position haha

    OOP acceptances

    Yeah, agreed. It can't be many. I went to Dal for my undergrad, and I opted out of the masters route given the rules for IP eligibility at the time. You were not able to be enrolled in post-secondary education to have your time spent living in the province to count. So dumb.

    OOP acceptances

    I wonder how many additional applicants became eligible for IP status through this route.

    OOP acceptances

    No, the university does not inform you where you stand. There is typically a premed 101 forum where you can anonymously poll your quantified application score. The success of the poll depends on people contributing their results. However, the quantified score does not tell you an applicant's Z-score, so you will sometimes see students with numerically smaller scores be offered admission over others.

    OOP acceptances

    Each applicant needs to meet a minimum interview score and pass casper. Last year, a majority of the NB applicants did not hit their mark for interview score. As a result, there was additional seats available at the NB campus that went to OOP students. The NB students bombed the interview (if you will).

    OOP acceptances

    9 seats are available for OOP. Last application cycle, 60 OOP students interviewed and the OOP wait-list was around 20-25 people.
  14. As an OOP student, you need to have a strong connection with the Maritime provinces to even be considered for an interview. The 250 word maritime essay for OOP is the only thing that matters in securing an interview (after you meet the minimum MCAT and GPA). Approximately 60 OOP students are invited to interview for 9 seats and 700+ apply. As an IP student, you are guaranteed an interview if you have a 506 MCAT and 3.3 GPA. The interview is worth 40% of the application. That is a huge consideration. In addition, the IP application pool is much smaller, around 300 applicants, and the number of seats available are greater - 63 seats for NS, 30 seats for NB. This is a significant advantage. If you are serious about medicine, and you are willing to move to the maritimes. Then I highly recommend it. There is no advantage to living in Ontario. Also, you went to High School in Ontario, so McMaster will still consider you an IP applicant. There is no guarantees that you will get into Dal Med, but you will not be worst off by obtaining residency status. One thing to note, if you do pack your bags and move out east. Make sure you arrive before September 1st, 2019 and you have proof (i.e. plane ticket, signed lease, etc) to prove to the admissions board that you arrived before the cut-off. DM me if you have any questions. I was an OOP student last year, but now I am IP.
  15. Strange. I would think at this point that some applicants' verifiers would have been contacted.
  16. I was thinking the same thing. If you didn't get invited to interview with your stats....who the hell did they invite??
  17. Result: Regrets :( Time Stamp: 9:04AM wGPA/cGPA: 3.92 /3.90 Year: Graduated MCAT: 517 (129/126/131/131) - assuming it was my CARS score ECs: four summer research terms, community & hospital volunteering, lots of individual sports, executive of university society....etc Geography: In province Currently, feeling very frustrated with the application process.
  18. This is my current mood ahaha. In summer of 2017, I was accepted to USyd’s MD program but turned it down to try my luck in Canada...it’s now almost 2019. I feel like the Canadian system has created an arrested development for hundreds if not thousands of qualified students.
  19. This is true. They sent me an e-mail indicating that one or more of my verifiers didn't respond. The e-mail does not specify whom. Each verifier is given one week to confirm your experience. One of my verifiers responded to my e-mails and texts after the deadline....assuming this is why my NAQ score was lower than anticipated.
  20. Can you link the redit page URL?
  21. Quick question! A verifier just got back to me indicating that they were contacted on November 8th. They did not submit their response until today, which is past the November 15th cut off (outlined in an e-mail sent to me from admission's office Re: verifier not responding). Will the verifier still be able to submit the confirmation of experience? I understand this entry will not likely be included in my NAQ score but I figure more information the better. Please let me know what you think!
  22. Dang, ok. Thank you! I have reached out again to all my verifiers to confirm if they have been contacted. Fingers crossed.
  23. I received an e-mail from UBC indicating that some of my versifiers have not replied. I have reached out to all my verifiers to remind them to check their SPAM folders. Can anyone comment on what happens if the Admission's Office does not hear back from my verifiers? So far, I have had 5 verifiers contacted at two separate times. Once in September and once in early November.
