  1. Applied but no interview - gpa is 3.95. I hope they release some numbers about how many applied.
  2. Hi, I am an OOP considering applying to Calgary. If I start a masters this coming fall, and apply fall 2021, will my graduate GPA have to be included in the GPA calculation? Particularly asking about this: "Applicants who have received a graduate degree (or will have prior to June 30th, 2020) will have their overall GPA from their graduate program used as equivalent to one additional year of undergraduate studies for the purposes of this calculation." Is this for people who might "need" the added year to meet min GPA or everyone? Thanks!
  3. Status: Rejection Time Stamp: 7:24pm Location: IP Stream: English cGPA/wGPA: 3.95/3.99 MCAT: 514 (127/130/130/127) Current year: 4th year UG ECs: NSERC, job as a research assistant, poster, manuscripts were in prep, some volunteering. Very cookie cutter. Geography: IP My first cycle applying - zero interviews. I know my ECs are average but I just thought I had a chance at GPA heavy schools.
  4. I know, it just feels like we passed through so many hoops and are so close.. I hope they end this by tmo.
  5. I know, the waiting game has been agonizing. I can't help but hold on to the hope that they are holding us for a reason and there is a SLIGHT chance of an interview.
  6. We are the last unfortunate bunch waiting. In previous years I would understand why they would delay decisions and have a "waitlist." With the online interview, I do not understand why we haven't heard back yet.
  7. No idea. I guess they might be current u of t med students?
  8. This account just said that the last round of u of t interviews is out..
  9. I do not know exactly, but each year a bunch of students switch from biomed to health sci and vice versa. First year in both programs is really similar. The major difference between the two programs in first year is that in Biomed, you will do two calculus courses and organismal biology whereas in Health Sci, you will do microbiology, sociology and determinants of health.
  10. I second poorpremed. I am a fourth year student in Health Sci at uOttawa. I had friends from both programs get accepted to medical schools. I was able to take all of the science prerequisites for medical school. However, like poorpremed said, it depends on your interests. Health Sciences will expose you to the big picture of health. You will be taking a mix of science courses and more sociology based courses. In third and fourth year, each Health Science course has a paper component.
  11. Nope, mine had the standard rejection letter. I was hoping to see if any letter was specific about social accountability initiative. I wanted to see number of applicants to social accountability initiative.
