    unfortunately a condition that my PI set when he hired me was that I'd stay and do my summer internship with him regardless of what happens with med admissions so I can't go back on my word and quit haha

    Waiting on uOttawa here ! Who else is taking the day off if they receive good news ?
  6. Nope, just be proficient enough to complete your casper and communicate well at the interview in french.

    Hi OP, I agree with both the advice above. If I may add, I also suggest asking your prof if you can review your exam and possibly argue a point or two - depending on the weighting associated with it, it should get you the additional 0.25%.
  8. hey ! I'm in the Ottawa region and is interested in some help. Could you PM me the details?

Invite Time Stamp: 12:20 AM Location: IP Stream: French wGPA: 3.87 Current year: Third year UG ECs: Pretty average ; hospital volunteering, few clubs ranging from high school to second year, jobs, no research Casper: Did not prep really heavily, just increased my typing speed a little and developed a good answering strategy using free sample Qs. Left out the third Q blank in 2-3 scenarios, otherwise felt good about my answers.

    Should I fight for marks??

    Speak to the TA and ask why you're losing marks. If they refuse to answer or you believe their marking is unfair, go speak to the prof. I understand where you're coming from in your frustration, but TAs (at my institution at least) don't take marks off, let alone give you a flat 0 on a question for no good reason. Also don't take their late answers to your email personally, they're busy people ! Good luck !

    Yes, I emailed admissions and they confirmed
  13. His chances are 0% regardless, they won't lower their GPA cutoff. It's not a question of money being an issue or not, its a question of don't throw your hard earned cash away
