    OMSAS log in issue

    Thank you!
  4. Hey everyone, I want to order a transcript through OMSAS but the website keeps redirecting me to OUAC instead. Is anyone able to login or is it just me?
  5. I think last year was when Scotia bought MD financial and so they ran the promotion to get new clients banking with them. I doubt they will offer the same promotion again.

    OMSAS reference letters stopped?!

    From what I gather, it will likely just be more check boxes for the referee with some comment boxes (i.e This candidate is in the top 1%, 5%, 20% of the class; I believe this candidate will be well suited to practice medicine). UBC has this format although they allow a space at the bottom for an actual reference, but each question has a comment box that a referee can elaborate slightly on. I think the letters will follow a similar format, albeit very succinct and only ask questions where the referee can just check box rather than giving a detailed letter. I still think the reference letters will be important, but much easier to fill out by asking the referee specific questions that are easily answered with a checkbox.
  7. I just called RBC and they said to wait until next week as there is a new promotion coming out for medical students and they could not tell me the details. Has anyone heard of this or have any insight?

    GPA chance

    Honestly, when I found out my GPA was only 5.0 on a 4.0 scale, I almost just gave up. I realized my GPA would hold me back so I just grabbed the holy CanMed infinity stones - Cerulean Communicator, Carmine Collaborator, Lilac Leader, Salmon Scholar, Hazel Health Advocate, and a Purple Professional Stone. When I combined my CanMed infinity stones, I was able to overcome my GPA. I hope this helps!
  9. Go to Guelph, so easy to get involved and have a good support system. Most of my friends are in medical school now from the program although because people can be gung-ho about veterinary medicine, a large portion of the class is future vets (for good reason). Research was a walk in the park to get involved with, extra-curriculars are overly abundant in the city and school. Good lifestyle.

    UofT acceptance follow up

    I am hopeful it will come next week or by the end of today
  12. I really want to start my LOC, however it seems like this may be a little early to start looking. Last year MD financial offered the 500$ bonus in June for signing a LOC and the IPad offering with RBC was discussed around the last week of May/first week of June in 2018. I'm probably going to wait another week before making my decision, but if Scotia will waive the annual fees for the 4 years + residency, I'm leaning towards them.
  13. If they remove the MCAT then I’m all for it. If not, I find it ironic how they want the admissions process to be more accessible yet by adding Casper increase the cost to apply. This whole process is approaching (or already at) a prohibitive cost, paying more for a test (unless the MCAT is removed) is in my eyes, unfair.

    Queen's deadline was also 1 day earlier to accept than everywhere else (27th as opposed to the 28th of May). I anticipate other schools in Ontario will start moving tomorrow.
