  1. Just want to say how awesome it is that you have risen above your past negative experiences! You’ve succeeded in getting into medical school. I think this shows that you have great interpersonal skills. Don’t decline an offer based on past experiences. Best of luck with medical school, I’m sure you’ll be great!

    Sciences prerequisites

    I believe you’re allowed to complete it post-application. I have a friend who received an interview invite and still hasn’t completed one of the prerequisites. He’s currently enrolled in it and will complete it in April. You would just need to prove that you did in fact complete it when you submit your transcripts if you were to receive an offer.

    I find it hilarious how we all slowly begin to disappear around 11 AM and then all show up the next morning :')

    I think the timing of when they come out doesn’t necessarily have to be in the morning. It tends to be a trend. However, I’m now inclined to think it would be a Monday just cause I read on the forum that the adcom meets on Mondays. So maybe they’ll finalize things? That being said, I’m still going to refresh my email the next 2 days

    I really hope it’s this week! If it’s not tomorrow, I’ll just assume it’ll be Monday

    I decided to take one for the team haha here’s an update: first off, just wanted to acknowledge how kind the lady at the office was! She said the same thing she says to everyone, that they will be out before the end of the month. BUT she added, and I quote: “we are in good shape” Sorry that it’s not very helpful

    I’m heading to the Tupper in an hour, if I have the courage to go to admissions, I’ll ask and update everyone!
  8. I was in a very similar situation this application cycle! I debated whether or not I wanted to talk about a traumatic experience, given it was one of the reasons I'm interested in pursuing a career in medicine. I decided not to bring it up because, I thought to myself, interviewers are humans. They will have biases. Yes, it is a possibility that they are trained to be somewhat less biased when conducting an interview. However, I always had a fear that, subconsciously, the stigma surrounding my traumatic experience would take away from the message I was trying to get across. Have you advocated/worked in a field that helps those who have experienced the same trauma? If so, you could discuss that! If not, you could always focus on other reasons that led you to medicine. Good luck! PM if you need to talk

    I really hope so! I personally called them last week and they said "I guarantee you it's not this week", a few others also mentioned the same thing. The fact that they haven't said that this week gives me a bit of hope Love this and how I'm not the only one haha! Fingers crossed for Tuesday!!

    I have a bunch of midterms, yet I prioritized going back through old posts in the forum to find this (please don't judge me, we're all in this together): 2018 - March 5th (Monday) 2017 - March 14th (Tuesday) 2016 - March 16th (Wednesday) 2015 - March 17th (Tuesday) 2014 - March 11th (Tuesday) 2013 - March 7th (Thursday)

    I feel like they will be coming out this week, my reasoning is because the med students have their reading week so maybe admissions has more time for us? Last week when I called they said they aim for mid-March, and now they're saying "before the end of the month" probably to avoid giving people an exact answer that would end up being wrong in the event that they run into any issues that would delay the process

    I want to call them but scared they'll file a restraining order against me given the number of times I've called them lol

    I was easily able to make it through Nov-Feb but these past few days, the wait has been killing me really hoping that they come out this week!

    At this point, I’ve accepted the fact that they won’t come out this week. I’ll go back to checking my email every hour next week
