  1. Time Stamp: 1:08pm Invite/Reject: Invite!! GPA: 4.00 CARS: 130 Casper: Literally horrible, I was worried my terrible casper would negate my gpa and cars. I guess it wasnt as bad as I thought, but still didn't feel too good about this. Geography: Ontario

  9. To the medical students, how do you find medical school compared to undergrad? Ie. in terms of workload, difficulty, overall stress… etc.? I’m finding that my undergrad is burning me out a little bit, I’m in my 3rd year, and I was wondering if medical schools becomes a bit less intense? (I heard that everything is P/F)
  10. I was wondering what everyone's opinion was on the structure of the personal essays... I'm worried because I didn't include introductory or concluding sentences in my essays because of restrictions with word count (but I don't want my essays to come off as unorganized or not formal enough). I did organize my arguments into paragraphs, but I just kind of jumped right into my first argument :/ Any comments/advice appreciated!
  11. I'm applying this cycle as a 3rd year student (in a 4 year bachelors program) and I read this on the U of T website: "If you are applying in the third year of a four-year degree program, you must provide proof that you have completed the requirements of that year of your degree prior to the date of enrolment in the MD Program". My program doesn't have any specifications for what you need to have done in 3rd year.... has anyone had any experience with this? Do they just count your number of credits??
  12. If I published more than one paper but from a single research activity (as a summer student), would I put each publication as a separate entry since they were on different projects? If so, would I use the same description for each repeated entry (e.g. Summer research student at xxx institute) or should I put something like (1/3) to show that they're not exactly the same...?

    Change in # of sketch entries?

    I was just about to make a post asking about this too, I haven't heard anything about the number of entries changing so this was a surprise :| I'm hoping it's just a typo haha

    MCAT cutoff

    Thanks for the replies :) I sure hope so, it's just that I couldn't find any other information on the U of T website and I'm super paranoid haha especially when the cutoff seems quite low?
