    Instagrammar got a reaction from castelprayon in 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!

    I read on another post on the forums that "RBC is coming out with a special medical school promo in June, which means med students would earn more points per purchase on the credit card and have deals on certain things (lower price on gas, discount on skip the dishes, etc.)"

    Instagrammar got a reaction from KinderSurprise in TD Student Line of Credit Amazon Offer   
    With a 325 M line of credit, I think this will really augment the self-care aspect of medical school. We can all agree that every student needs their own private jet and yacht to succeed #self-care. Right now, I just could not picture taking anything less than 400 million for my line of credit, but with the 500$ Amazon card, I am tempted to settle for a lowly 325 million LOC. I guess the penthouse I wanted will just need to wait.

    I rarely post on this forum, but for those waiting I hope my stats can give you some relief/an idea of where you stand.
    Timestamp: June 4 1:47 PM ET
    Accepted VFMP (1st choice)
    Early or regular deadline: Regular
    AGPA: 3.89
    MCAT: 506. Yup 506... (128/125/126/127). Had little hope with this score, but miracles happen..
    Year: Graduated, doing a 1 year masters
    ECs: Think this is where I clutched. A couple pubs, decent work exp, volunteering, clubs. Lots of music experience (teaching, playing, etc.) Message me if you want more advice on this, because I think this is really the only reason I got in..
    Geography: OOP
    Interview: Felt decent, first MMI so wasn't too sure what to expect, but left not feeling bad or amazing.
    Really hope this helps, and feel free to message me with more questions. I know this is a super difficult time for people and it can be very overwhelming at times.

    Instagrammar got a reaction from VladTheLad in UofT- Changes to the Admissions Process   
    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.

    I would wait to apply because most offers tend to be announced in early June, but it's not too early to start looking. Advisors will be able to tell you most of the details of their LOC, and will generally tell you whether or not to wait to apply at their institution based on upcoming promos. (I met with RBC last year the week before the iPad offer was announced, and the advisor I met with told me to wait until the following week before applying for a LOC at any institution because there would be an announcement that could influence my decision.) MD Financial is Scotiabank now though, so I'm not sure they will be offering a LOC anymore (because their LOC would be Scotiabank's LOC, whereas MD Financial used to offer LOCs through National Bank).
