  1. i have a number of different accounts with TD so switching banks kinda complicates my finances and i like the convenience of just sticking to one bank (less of a headache moving forward - better to simplify things imo) i was seriously considering scotia and may still switch to them for my LOC down the road. with all things considered - scotia is the best imo
  2. most banks offer the same basic stuff - the main thing is to make sure you are getting prime minus 0.25% for your variable interest rate. I am with TD currently so i decided to stay with them for my LOC although their credit card perks aren't the best. if you are ok with moving banks i think Scotia has the best current offers with their Healthcare+ professional LOC (350k - all up front) and have the best travel rewards with their credit card as well.
  3. the class was 95% full after the first round of offers on may 12 (source upper-year newsletter) the first wave of waitlist offers have been sent out- and i don't think many more offers will be made unfortunately

  5. not really sure how they contact you; i'm assuming/i think someone last year posted they got an email from u of t off the waitlist - if the school doesn't hear back from you, i'm pretty sure they go on to call you to make sure they get a hold of you and inform you of your offer.
  6. this is my experience/information from friends at u of t med who have said lots of people accept their u of t offers and there isn't much movement
  7. very little movement and not a big wait list either - i was on it last year and never got in - got rejected from it early june
