  1. With your stats, I would apply to the English stream especially if you are more fluent in english. You are VERY competitive, you just need to nail casper and you should be good. Also, the advantage of the English stream compared to the French stream is that the English waitlist moves be hundreds of people, while for the french waitlist is about 2-3 people max. Best of luck!!
  2. Yes 100% try. However, make sure you also qualify with the new rule for the upcoming cycle "Minimum Grade of B (CÉGEP equivalent 70%) must be attained in all Prerequisite Science Courses for a candidate to be considered for admission." I realized this myself today and unfortunatly can not apply for this upcoming cycle. Best of luck!
  3. Hi yeescience, What is your wGPA exactly, what is the GPA for your last 3 years?. Also, I am from Ottawa and I can assure you that your french must be perfect for casper but also the interview since it is completely in french. My only recommendation is practice, practice, practice! Best of luck!

    Waitlist Support Thread - 2018

    @karl heider can you give a detailed description of your ABS, Casper and interview please?

    What are my chances?

    @premednewbie977 I don't mind you asking! Well the ones I know had English as a first language, but applied to French just to get to the interview easier. However, once at the interview stage you really need to have clear ideas and communication between you and the interviewer is key at that point. Some of them I'm sure would've got in if they chose the English stream instead. Generally speaking, the English stream is a bit riskier since you have more competition, but you should still do it in the langage you're more comfortable with, especially with your stats.

    What are my chances?

    I know people with a cGPA 4.0 that applied to the French stream because it's "easier". However, once they got to the interview part, it did not go as well as they intended. I would definitely say that with a competitive GPA as high as yours you should definitely apply to the langage stream you are most comfortable with. That way you can definitely nail the Casper and interview.

    5th year for GPA?

    It does depend a lot on your ECs as well as your Casper. I'd say that if you're on the strong side for EC and you nail Casper, you don't really need a 5th year. But I've heard of people with lower GPA's then you get in uOttawa (also depends on your stream). Don't give up and keep working hard and you'll get in this year hopefully
