  2. I had that issue and combined them (I put intramural from 2 diff sports and two diff schools together), I just asked my verifier to say they knew I played in the other league and sent them a text with what i said in the abs box so worst case scenario, they school actually calls them, then they could just they know you did the other league too. Depends who your verifiers are tho if they’re not chill then maybe just put the more significant one or just risk it and put both bc they prob won’t call to check lol
  3. Im old so I’ve had a lot of time to do activities/research but I condensed 80+ items (counting each pub for example as one item) into the 32 spots last year and got into western, idk if western looks at the regular abs but I grouped things for their abbreviated abs essays and it worked for that. I also used the “Summer or Academic year” to provide more info so instead of just saying summer I’d be like in the summer I Collected patient data, analyzed blah blah, then in academic year i did x y z. I did the same thing when it asks for full time or part time, so you get a lot more space that way, idk if it helped. But I did the same thing as u by trying to have a nice spread of the different categories so I didn’t look too one dimensional with research. i think it’s fine what u did and I’d just do it again and keep practicing interviews if you were rejected post interview. It honestly just comes down to luck at a point so dw you’ll probably get in this time
  4. lol watch this thread gets OP bare girls in his DMs and ends up getting laid from this
  5. I didn't (I imagine it's fine though) but if anyone is wondering about using the same verifier for multiple activities, I did that and it worked out. Just used friends that were involved in the activities with me. I had 6 verifiers I think for the 8 essays (used 2 ppl twice).
  6. I actually did some reading on the premed forums before I asked my question and ended up joining the group then. It asks for a license in the facebook questions to join the group, but I just wrote in that part that I'm a med student trying to get an early start and they accepted me into the group. Thanks for all the replies everyone, I probably won't talk much about investing b/c I don't really have anything to invest (still in debt from undergrad). I think I'll meet with them anyway to see what they have to say and take everything with a grain of salt. I'm doing a lot of self-education though too with random stuff on the internet and podcasts etc. I recently read the White Coat Investor and read The Wealthy Barber a few years ago but I'll revisit it now, I'm still super naive about this stuff. Just one more q, I'll probably learn this during the financial talk in O-week but do you guys recommend disability/life insurance as an M1? From what I've read, it's really cheap. Do most ppl get it? do you have to get it? any general knowledge about it? I may be wrong but I thought I remember the bank saying that nobody is liable for my LOC if I die/get in accident etc. If that's true (which very likely may not be), why would one get insurance?
  7. I'm an incoming infant (first year med student) trying to set up financial stuff so I make my life easier in the future. I'm going to meet with MD financial and ask a bit about: - insurance - scholarships - budgeting I just wanted to check with you veterans out there, is there anything else that would be useful to ask discuss? I'm just trying to set myself up well from the beginning b/c I don't know much about finance. Thanks
  8. I emailed Norma about the Schulich scholarship, she said some have gone out already but most haven’t. She said they will all prob be out by the end of August. I think there’s 16 of them.
  9. Has anyone heard of the credit card promos being renewed after July 1st? I’m away on a trip and won’t be back until after July 1st to activate my cards. I swear I heard the scotia woman say that the deals will likely be renewed after July 1st. Anyone else heard if they run these promos later into the summer?
  10. Was Windsor your first choice? Edit: sorry my screen didn’t load, I see now that someone already asked this.
  11. How’d you guys feel about your writing sample portion of the interview day? Maybe they rejected ppl that didn’t get a pass on the writing sample?
  12. Same with me, I’m hoping they changed it or else it means we’re on the medium waitlist.
  13. I heard that some ppl's references were contacted pre-interview but mine weren't as far as I know. I haven't heard of them contacting references post-interview.
  14. I don't think anyone really knows now. I asked this question a while back and I was told that a long time ago it was 50% interview, 25% GPA, 25% MCAT. This was like 10 years ago or something though so maybe now it's like 50% interview, 16.6% GPA, 16.6% MCAT and now 16.6% aABS but I just made that up so it's probably completely wrong lol. I also emailed Schulich to ask this but they never replied. tl;dr - nobody knows
  15. If your two best years are each over 3.7, you could still have a chance for Western (so if you just happened to do super bad in two of the other years). Or potentially if you had one year of 3.7 you could do a "special year" for Western to get over 3.7 which would just be one extra undergrad year.
  16. Update: they replied to my email and said it was a mistake and there is no bonus for a grad degree. They updated their dentistry FAQ and somehow that question ended up in the medicine FAQ by mistake.
  17. Am I trippin or is this new? It's from the FAQs on Schulich's site. I never knew there was a bonus for a grad degree. also the next FAQ below it says having a grad degree doesn't increase chance of acceptance...: I haven't slept much so idk if I'm just missing something obvious or if these are contradicting each other. Has anyone heard of a grad degree bonus before?
  18. yeah maybe I just didn't notice though but I feel like I would have seen it if there was one. It's hard with the inconsistency b/c ppl's biases will always play a role and some ppl will always be harder markers than others even if there is a strict rubric. It's shitty that your fate can be (even at least partially) dependent on someone's subjectivity but we just have to live with it and try to distract ourselves until may 14.
  19. I didn’t have a stopwatch. I guess just some rooms did.
  20. I assumed each panel just did the 4 timeslots during the day they were involved.
