  1. Anyone know if this happened last year with admissions decisions following?
  2. In the acceptance email it says we need to get a Basic Cardiac Life Support certification: "You must complete a recognized Basic Cardiac Life Support course through a recognized provider, e.g. Red Cross. Once complete, please bring documentation of your successful completion to orientation." Can I just do Standard First Aid through the Red Cross or Heart and Stroke? I can't find any courses called BCLS online but maybe I'm missing something
  3. Result: Accepted Geography: OOP 4th year Undergrad GPA: 3.9+ MCAT: 520+ Degree: UofT Sci E.C: Well rounded, I’d say Interview: Very based around personal characteristics. I found I was able to just talk what I felt. Had no need for prep and found that this was very conversational! Will likely decline for ontario schools, for any interested waitlisters!
  4. So even those getting rejected get their verifiers contacted?
  5. OOPer, was notified I had a couple verifiers contacted in the past week
  6. In the past they contacted verifiers even after people were accepted.

    I’ve heard this as well. I think it’s just mainly to test for communication ability and that you’re a normalish person to talk to
  11. Timestamp: March 15th, 2019 2:04pm Interview: April 7 Result: Interview (MD) MCAT: Above cut-offs GPA: 3.9ish ECs: Pretty strong, got EC heavy schools Essays: Really half-assed these, probably why it took me so long to hear back, near the end of the totem pole Year: UG Geography: IP

    FAQ: What are my chances?

    Honestly, no. You have pretty much a zero chance of getting in with that GPA. Try doing 1 or 2 years of UG coursework for the schools that will accept that

    They will not ask this
  14. Does anyone know how much/how many spots the waitlist moves for OOPers? Can't find any stats online
