  1. Did Kamran offer to waive the 60k income requirement for the Passport Visa infinite? The scotia advisor I talked to told me it's firm :/
  2. Has anybody had success getting upgraded to the ScotiaBank Ultimate Package from the Preferred Package that is included with the Healthcare+ Plan? RBC is offering their equivalent top-tier package (VIP Banking package) with their LOC so I'm hoping I could leverage this against ScotiaBank.
  3. Has anybody received any communication from UBC confirming/verifying the submission of the post-interview component of their application? I submitted my passport scan, verification of enrolment, site preference form, and reference letters by the Feb 14 deadline but have not heard anything from UBC since my interview. Please reassure me!
  4. Does anybody have a comprehensive source for current public health issues in Canada? I am hoping to find something similar in format to the UWashington bioethics page that can lay everything out for me in brief summaries. The best I have been able to find is look at various periodicals ex: CMAJ, Andre Picard's health column and White Coat Black Art with Brian Goldman.
  5. There is a luck component but it isn't necessarily the subjectivity of the evaluation, it is also that the applicant pool can vary widely in terms of NAQ excellence/proficiency each year
  6. Hey! I'm also interested in joining. please send me a message
  7. Anybody studying for their MCAT in Victoria this summer? message me if you would like to meet up and study together
  8. @VigoVirgo Can you please cite a source for this? I have not heard that before but that is really good news if true.
  9. I am transferring from a small rural BC college to UAlberta next fall (Bio major). I have good grades (~3.9 gpa) but am worried that my somewhat erratic course history might be a problem to Adcoms. (Mostly due to the transfer process). Please tell me your thoughts on what this may mean, is it a "red flag" or do adcoms only want to see good grades and some full time schooling? . Year 1-college: 10 courses, 1 withdrawal (made up in summer session) Year 2-college: 9 courses, 1 withdrawal (not made up) Year 3-college: 2 courses + 1 online through TRU Projected: Year 4-UofA: 10 courses (Also may have to redo one course [general chemistry] due to problems with transfer) Year 5-UofA: 10 courses Year 6-UofA: possibly two or three courses to complete degree requirements (I have decent EC's and am writing MCAT this summer) What do you think? I am mostly looking to apply at UAlberta, UCalgary, UBC, Queens, Western, and UOttawa. (I know I am not eligible for Utoronto gpa weighting). Thanks.
