    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

    CASPer and GPA question and chances? (OOP)

    Mac uses cGPA, and both your GPA and CARS are unfortunately below the average (3.84 and 129 respectively). Adding the fact that you're OOP will just make it that much harder. If you obliterate the CASPer maybe you could get yourself an interview ? If you're applying to another Ontario school may as well give it a shot if money isn't an issue but understand that the odds are stacked against you . Good luck
  6. Great, thank you

  8. Hello everyone, When we input our referee's personal info on OMSAS, can we use the address of their office or does it have to be their personal home address ? It would probably be a little weird having to ask my 3 referee's where they live just to have them complete an online form Thank you !

    Chances: 124 CARS

    You might fall below the CARS cutoff unfortunately Your grad degrees won't help if that's the case. I would retake and make sure I can get my CARS up, while keeping the other sections where they are (or higher). In Ontario at least, that score puts you at a huge disadvantage for Mac, disqualifies you from Toronto and Western and possibly Queens. Good luck !
