  1. Does anyone know where the referee is supposed to describe in what capacity they know the applicant? OMSAS just states that it asks the referee the four questions but nowhere about how they know the applicant.....
  2. It varies depending on the grading scale of your institution! I would suggest converting each course grade (either letter grade or percentage, depending on the institution) using the OMSAS scale and then calculating your cGPA based on that.
  3. Haha ok, slight overreaction on my part but I figure that verifiers are all contacted electronically (without adcoms actually overseeing any of this) so it would automatically be void. Thankfully, I was able to edit the verifier contact information. PHEW.
  4. For one of my entries, I put the email where the phone number is supposed to go and the phone number where the email is supposed to go! What do I do? D:
  5. Where are referees supposed to include how they know/worked with the applicant?
  6. Hi, I'm confused about Queen's requirement of 1 personal reference. I have two profs and a previous employer (not at all academic related job). Would the employer be considered personal? Thanks!
  7. Is it just me who noticed that diversity of experience went from 12 activities max to 10 for the 2019/2020 cycle?
  8. I was wondering if anyone has noticed any drastic fluctuations in their NAQ score year to year? Is a 10 point increase too much to hope for? I have a couple new activities (2 pubs, 1 conference, another service ethic position) but I want to be realistic...
  9. Has anyone taken additional courses through TRU-OL? Any recommendations? I was looking into: - ENVS 3991 Environmental Studies: Sustainability - MDLB 1221 Professional Practices and Safety in Healthcare - PSYC 1111 - Intro Psych (never took psych in uni but scored a 130 on MCAT so figured I could do well in it?)
  10. Hi everyone, I know this has been asked before but I was wondering if there was any confirmation that QMed accepts a year of unclassifed courses as part of their 2yr GPA? What if I were to take 6 courses from now until the end of April through TRU-OL? i.e. starting 3 now until Feb and then 3 more Feb - April? Thanks!
  11. So say I have low grades in my first and second year that I want to drop... would that mean I could only drop courses from one year? And if I want to keep the courses I did well in, does that I drop fewer than 30 credits?
  12. My publication was accepted today (June 24) but the deadline for UBC research publications is June 1. Is there any way I can still include the DOI on my app?
  13. Assuming I am applicable for the agpa calculation, does the AGPA calculation mean the lowest 30 credits on your transcript are dropped or only the lowest credits in one particular year? Are summer courses counted in AGPA calculations?
