    Admitted but never kissed a girl

    How old is that guy? I feel like that's a super creepy/weird thing to say to a girl and wouldn't work today. The guy also must have been white.
  2. Umm if your aboriginal you should look at all schools in Canada. I'm pretty sure they all have special and much more lax cutt-offs for aboriginal ppl. Doesn't one school in the west accept you if you just meet the minimum cutoffs? Was it Manitoba? Idk. But ya if your aboriginal I'm pretty sure your gonna have a pretty good chance at any school.

    Poster presentation

    Hi, Just curious about poster presentations: if you have co-authors (who are Profs/Phds) who is typically chosen to present? Is it usually the first author who is a student or is it the person who is more experienced/educated but is a later author?
  4. The most likely explanation is the simplest and most logical one. You were rejected pre interview because other applicants were better and had what uoft was looking for more than you. It might not make sense to you but you don't know how good other ppls applications were. You might be overrating your own essays and EC's . It's competitive.
  5. You could've just said you were sick and got a doctor's note... Ppl do this for exams they have no reason to miss.

    Post-interview thoughts 2019

    Majorly fucked up one station LMFAO. I feel so much cringe thinking about this station lol. Two stations went excellent as they were questions I had exactly practiced. Two other ones I feel I struggled with. The rest idk and was hard to judge but felt fine. Can't say I'm confident lol.

    OMSAS Transcript Issue (URGENT)

    Probably shouldve put it on OMSAS? I think it would affect your GPA calculations for schools like McMaster that take all courses into consideration... I'm not sure. I have nightmares about this kind of thing lol.
  9. Hey, I recently got accepted for a poster presentation after I submitted an abstract. Would it be appropriate for me to ask for a day off from work to attend this or is it not that important? I was first author on the paper. The organization I work at is the same as the organization where I wrote and published this paper but I'm in another city now and obviously working with another researcher on other research projects. I've never done a poster presentation before either. Just don't know if this would be appropriate. Opinions?
  10. I thought you weren't able to submit the application if you didn't verify your email?

    Interview invites delayed

    What was the target date before? Didn't even know that this kind of info was on their website lol.
  13. Nice sentiment but everybody is not gonna make it.
  14. I'm pretty sure it says that for everyone. I don't think it means that your on an interview waitlist.
  15. Ya I received rejection at 11.06 am. English stream.

    U of T medical student convicted of rape

    Alcohol could have impaired his judgement as well. Just saying. But yeah, sometimes the most horrible people are good at charming, socializing and getting into prestigious professions. Know a couple people in my life who are horrible but have talked their way into good positions. Also, wasn't there some medical student from Dalhousie (i think? I think it was in Eastern Canada) who murdered someone?
  17. Time Stamp: 1:05 pm Invite/Reject: Invite GPA: idk like 3.95-3.97ish CARS: 130 Casper: umm I don't do well on these kind of things so I think it was mostly my GPA and cars lol Geography: Ontario
  18. Umm I guess it depends what color as well as the hairstyle to begin with. Natural colour highlights with a well groomed haircut may not be that bad. You want med school students to be able to express themselves and not be too restricited in personal choices like fashion (we are in our 20s and young). But medicine is a pretty conservative profession and i can see some ppl looking at you funny lol. Also you are kinda representing your school or workplace when you interact with patients and clients so I can see why they would ask you to change. Might come accross as unprofessional or project some sort of a negative image. Personally i wouldn't care but bc I can see how some people would, I dont see why you would risk it especially for interviews.

    What are my chances?

    To add to what others said, you could also look at western and McMaster. For both you would need to do good on the cars section. Western doesnt I think give any advantage to PhDs but they only need 3.7 for 2 years of ug. And McMaster i think gives a boost (4%?) for PhDs. They dont look at ecs that much so your CV wouldnt help you as much.

    Giving up slowly...

    I fucked up on cars my first time as well. For your practice tests were you struggling? Or did you just end up bombing on the test? Mightve just been test anxiety? For me, I needed to get more familiar with dense text. Then i improved my score a lot.
  21. Ahh that sucks. Even if UofT is a lost cause, you should still get it sorted for your other schools. I think one ontario schools deadline for references is Nov 1rst (queens?). And maybe the fact that you have the tracking # and some evidence would help you with UofT. Otherwise it's out of your control and not really your fault. One of my references submitted (online) literally on Oct 1 lol but I wasnt applying to uoft anyways so it wasnt a big deal. The thing i find weird is that they have none of your references? I dont think all 3 couldve messed up mailing them? Is there anyway that you made a mistake in telling them where to mail the letters?
  22. I successfully submitted and got email confirmations but when i login it says document tracking? Any1 else get this and is it normal?
