  1. edit: sorry, misread the question. I thought the topic was about being blacklisted, not red flags. Agreed with above

    2019 Interview Waitlist Thread

    I think just within Ontario. If you accept an MD/PhD offer on OMSAS, it automatically withdraws you for Ontario schools, but OOP schools may not be aware.

    between this post and the other one posted by the same user, this is almost certainly a troll.

    Studying for mcat with limited time?

    just do practice. especially if you have already been exposed to the material. you will see where you are weak and plan accordingly. getting a feel for how the MCAT tests is MUCH more useful than prepping for the whole summer and only doing 1-2 weeks of practice.
  6. I am not sure if it counts as an attempt, but no med schools will see this. Even if they could, they wouldn't care (in Canada). US med schools have more access to the system, but I seriously doubt they care since they even ignore voided exams.

    So much luck in this process

    Post-interview discussion

    Even so, if they are discrete, they must be in increments larger than 0.5? Maybe 4, 3.8333, 3.666, 3.5 etc etc? Obviously nobody knows for sure, but a 4.0 to one set of interviewers could easily be a 3.5 to another, making it an unreliable tool.

    Post-interview discussion

    Is this actually verified? I have seen this idea placed over the forums, but there is no way they assign 575 candidate scores into 8 discrete bins. There are 3 interviewers, and each interviewer has a score sheet made up of multiple criteria with the highest value being 4. It is much more likely there is a continuous spread of interview scores that are formulated from the average score between these interviewers, rather than discrete bins. Otherwise, there is no way to reliably differentiate a 4 from a 3.5, or even a 3.

    Application dans plusieurs universités

    Oui, si tu recois une entrevue a chacune des universités
  12. Congratulations best of luck with the interview
  13. did they email or call?
  14. How did you get this info??
  15. I think there are many interview dates, and they don't really tell you what other options there are when they send an invite. Since they run a panel, they have a bit more flexibility than MMI schools to have interviews more spread out.

    retaking a 515

    if you're not applying to Mac, Western, Alberta or Calgary, your MCAT is more than adequate for every other school. i recommend against rewriting. spend your summer doing something fun or meaningful.

    retaking a 515

    They only look at cut off lol, I and others will tell you that with 100% certainty. At UofT, 125 across the board = 132 across the board

    Request for help

    Just gonna say.. if you have decent ECs, it is much more worthwhile to spend time working on how you present your ABS rather than adding more content to them.

  20. No, don't explicitly state you're referring to them. Integrate them into your response

    Are all Bachelor of Science Degrees Equal?

    Anything accredited.. diatetics, nursing, law, etc. Thesis-based Masters might help a bit at some schools, but is not worth doing just for the sake of med school.

    Are all Bachelor of Science Degrees Equal?

    BSc = BA = BComm in Canada. Not a single cares or prefers a certain degree. Exception is McGill that gives points for academic context -but all BSc will be equal in regard, only professional degrees will give you a boost. There is simply too much inconsistency between programs. Biology at Toronto is probably much harder than biomed at York. How could schools differentiate? Do what you want to do and are interested in.
  23. I wouldn't say so. There can always be cancellations.. but the chances aren't too high. Not many people will cancel their interview.
  24. Yeah and because of Queens' policy of no accomodations for interviews we may see offers as soon as the deadline to sign up for an interview (tomorrow)
