  1. As far as I'm aware as long as you're a US citizen, you would be considered as an OOS applicant. I'm in the same boat as you citizenship-wise, and am applying to US schools this cycle after being waitlisted this year (just in case things don't pan out). Keep in mind you will also be eligible for US Federal Loans to fund your studies if you do get accepted in the United States. Problem with Ireland or other international locations would be the fact that you may have struggles getting US/Can residency.

    Heres to hoping lots of accepted NS students get into Ontario schools tomorrow! (and hopefully decide to go there!)

    Why is everyone here French?

    I think it has to do with the fact there are no true english speaking Podiatry schools in Canada (as far as I'm aware), and most Anglo-Canadians would choose to go to a US Podiatry school, where another online forum may be more appropriate.

    Continue working, and apply again. How's everyone holding up in purgatory?

    Just a little thought that I felt compelled to share. For those of you that are fortunate enough to live in an area with Daylight Savings Time, just remember that decision letters are 1 hour closer than you may have thought.

    Nothing like our neurotic speculation to bring a thread back to life. To be fair there are probably many aspects to making the requirement more lenient. Maybe to prevent OOP taking NB seats, maybe to increase revenue to offset costs of applications or maybe even things I haven't thought about yet. We might just have a little bit too much time on our hands to think about it.

    Well we can rest assured that the verdict is less than a month away. On another note, what are your thoughts on the changes Dalhousie has made to their MCAT requirements for next cycle?

    I would speculate that this drop was a consequence to the new CASPER requirements introduced last cycle.
  9. Not a sign. Verifiers in the past have let me know they have been contacted but I haven't received an offer.
