  1. if we get blood orange or raspberry pink then maybe its a good thing were online for a while HAHA
  2. Result: waitlisted wGPA: somewhere between 3.93-3.94 MCAT: above cutoffs Essays: make these bad boys as personal as possible while focusing on the clusters they have on their website Interview: cried myself to sleep after this one, was surprised it wasn't a straight rejection. I interviewed on Feb 8th, and honestly I am not the strongest interviewer at all so I wish I just had more time to prepare. If I were to give any tips, it would be to try to add structure to your answers, but at the same time toronto really values personal examples so make sure to incorporate them when possible. Year: graduated last year! References: idk if itll be relevant but I am pretty sure I had some of the best references out there. Again, surprised to be waitlisted and not rejected but either way I got into my top choice so I am a happy man!
  3. posting for stats Result: ACCEPTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! london Timestamp: student centre @ 12 2-year GPA: 3.96 MCAT: above cutoffs Interview: online, was OK thought i said a red flag and was so nervous this entire time ABS: filled 8/8 plus the about me section. i think the biggest thing about the ABS is just giving a concise spiel about how your activity meets the category (HOW does this demonstrate social accountability or w.e. ) and being as clear as possible when answering the questions they are asking. for example, if they are asking for 3 things you learned in this position and how it will impact your career in medicine, you better literally spell it out for them (i literally numbered mine). after interviewing twice here, i think they mark your entry with a very strict rubric so follow their instructions to a T. Year: graduated last year! Geography: SWOMEN man truly a surreal feeling. last year i got low waitlisted after the interview so i made sure this year to put BARE work into my interview skills. i can say from first hand experience that its a skill you can LEARN after loads of practice and i think advice from the right people.
  4. maybe we should also ask this in the western thread - really interested to see if/how theyre implementing changes. maybe that one rep @CHG can chime in or people from the facebook group have some info
  5. yeah i think it really depends on the individual: whatever works with your study habits! if youve been very successful without handwriting your notes, then why change? i personally come from a physics/math background so i have always hand written my notes, really thinking of some sort of tablet.
  6. hey! i was in your position last year and god i know how you (and probs everyone here) feels: down, annoyed, frustrated at this process, and sad. but trust me, youre NOT the only swomen applicant that got low waitlisted, its just for me i was so disappointed i couldnt bring myself to post about it. its really easy to look around you and think "wow everyone except me succeeded. i must be a terrible applicant. i will never get another interview ever again", but (i cant stress this enough) this is NOT the case. you must be exceptional to even get an interview and therefore the interview will come again! its also possible you had a bad interview bc of nerves/ the panel you got, but also speaking from experience interviewing is a skill you can learn. take this experience and learn from it and you come back stronger next year. if youre at western(?) the peer mock interviewers offered by the success centre were a great resource for the this 2nd time around and it really helped me hone my interview skills and i attribute my acceptance this year honestly all to them. feel free to DM me if you need any advice/just need someone to rant to i would love to chat
  7. i love how the may 8th countdown for 2018 was 10 pages meanwhile were over 100 lmfaooooooo
  8. praying for you man, hope it works in your favor!!!!!!!!
  9. anyone got western email yet? i would like to frame it
  10. it was for me! firmly accepted that thing as soon as i saw it
  11. interviewed at uwo and uoft. got into western, no button on omsas so idk whats going on with omsas/toronto/ buttongate
  12. i know western usually always goes through the high waitlist, but i saw a number people quoted saying they make 250 total offers (this means after waitlist movement and everything). idk if thats true
