  1. Ok thanks for ur advice. You think no 5th year even though 3.87 is the average GPA of accepted students now?
  2. Casper aside CARS aside 3.83 cGPA If you were me... 5th year or no?
  3. Hey guys, I typically get 1-2 questions wrong on each CARS passage I do (AAMC practice tests). I've practiced for days and have improved significantly over the months. I realize that getting 2 questions wrong per passage is probably excessive. Sometimes I go on a short streak and ace the passages, but then its like I hit a wall. My test is coming up and I think I should stop practicing before I go insane. Did anyone else get 1-2 questions wrong while practicing but ended up with 128+? Am hoping for some optimism lol.. but I can take honest feedback. Thank-you!
  4. Thank-you, perhaps my original question was unclear. Yes, as you said, I am wondering if any students successfully deferred their acceptance for 1 year while they finished their masters. I would not feel comfortable quitting my masters program halfway through. Hmm.. what to do, what to do..
  5. I think it has to do with awareness (or what some might call pessimistic thinking)... an understanding of the fact that medical school is incredibly competitive, and while I like to think that I am a competitive applicant, I must keep in mind a suitable backup plan.. something that (1) interests me, and (2) will provide me with ample employment opportunities (should I not be lucky enough to earn a position in a medical school). I am biased, but I think it is a conservative way to go about doing things. Many students do start a masters program and apply to medical school while completing it. It is not uncommon. In fact, Queens and several other universities in Canada will consider deferring a student's offer of admission should they need to finish one more year in their masters program. So, to clarify: no, I would not be quitting a masters halfway through, hence my original question: Has anyone successfully deferred their offer to McMaster to finish the last year of their masters?
  6. Hey guys, Has anyone successfully deferred their offer to McMaster to finish the last year of their masters? I am starting a 2 year masters program in September and was really hoping to apply to McMaster this cycle. I wonder if I will have to hold off until next year, when I am in the final year of my masters.. or if I could request a 1 year deferral? I have no clue what to do!
  7. It wouldn't hurt to contact a second representative. While I realize that seeing 3.8 instead of 3.85 might feel like a total shock, I must say that you have an excellent subGPA. Even if you end up being stuck with the 3.8... you should be proud of yourself. You are a competitive candidate and adcoms will see that.
