  1. You don't loose anything by emailing them, but applicant pools do change from year to year, and while your's might not have changed others' could have. For proof of residency I sent in a birth certificate with the initial application, have never been asked for additional documentation
  2. Got an invite email on January 2nd (Time Stamp: 10:38 am). Unfortunately don't know when the rest will be sent.
  3. Got mine tonight as well ! Really was not expecting this today, hard to believe but then I found a thread from 2012 where they received answers on Dec. 19th as well ! Congrats btw.
  4. Personally, I did research full-time summer of 2018 and for my first MCAT it wasn't ideal. Then again, I still got the 129 CARS, cut-offs and an interview&admission offer but that was mostly because of my research background, not the MCAT or my GPA (3.8 at the time) lol. But if you don't need the research because you have other meaningful experiences and don't think you'll get A LOT for your CV out of it (publications, awards and grants), I'd say go get that 520+ by doing MCAT full-time. Keep in mind that depending on your level of interest in your research, you're gonna want to do your best, put in more time and go for as many opportunities as you can and this will take away from an already thight MCAT schedule.
  5. I was talking about polio which takes a little over a year. From the answers I got at Student Health Center and Wellness and Equity they could do the same thing with conditional clearance, just not an as sure thin as Hep B since it hasn't happened a lot :/ Thanks for your responses :) I had reached out to all these with no success, hopefully it'll be possible to get an AC test in London and have that be enough with the rounds I started for now
  6. Hey guys, going out on a limb until I can get someone from Western on the phone about this : Do you know of anyone who hadn't received a clearance at the beginning on the term due to a vaccine series they we're currently doing but wouldn't be completed for another 12 months ? What happens, am I really locked out of all clinical experiences ? Can I even keep up if that's the case ? My parents lost my vaccination book, had I known in advance I would have done this last summer...
  7. I'm abroad and cannot for the life of me access my student centre portal so i'm hoping someone can help ! - I have an offer in the Omsas website, but we're receiving emails tomorrow right ? - Is there any student portal center steps to do like accepting ? Because I won't have access until after the may 28th deadline when I get home
  8. Sure, I assume many will be surprised by my invite. As ECs I've done a lot of research both clinical and not for a finishing 3yr-bachelor student (grants, presentations,articles in review, honors research program in my bachelor), volunteering as counselor and in medical accompaniment, executive positions in clubs for 2years or more (Artistic, Amnesty International) as well as co-founding, organizing events, survival canoe expeditions and other shorter commitments. My ABS touched on all of these and I spent A LOT of time on it. I can't remember if Western looks at references but I also tried to make those diverse (Humanities professor, psychiatric nurse and MD research supervisor).
