  1. I did. I felt that I jumped the gun a bit but wanted to lock down a nice place before any waitlist movement happened!
  2. The last section of the immunization forms asks for an up-to-date seasonal influenza vaccination record for this academic year. I did not get the flu shot last year so I won't have anything to put their until the new shot is available in late summer. Has anybody received information from the office about how we should proceed in a case like this? Thank you!
  3. Just wanted to jump in here and say that those are all "soft" deadlines due to COVID, with the exception of June 30th for transcripts. We received an e-mail on June 3rd instructing us to "submit what we can by the deadline" and that "the rest will be submitted when possible."
  4. Bumping this because I would like to know too!
  5. All of your points make total sense. This change does not make the admissions process more equitable, and it certainly punishes more people than it benefits. The reality of the situation is that there are no truly standardized metrics to measure applicants. Thus, medical schools must make do with the imperfect tools that they have. I think this change is indicative of that reality. Keep in mind, while we Canadians are cursed with low medical school acceptance rates, we are blessed that our medical schools do not use the same methods to assess applicants. This is true even if we focus on Ontario schools only. Lower GPA? Queen's and Western use forgiving cutoffs. MCAT not your thing? Look at uOttawa and NOSM. Can't access ECs? Aim at McMaster. Can't type for CASPer? UofT, Queen's, and Western gotchu. Even in Ontario alone, there is a niche for any type of applicant. I sincerely hope you all find one that works for you moving forward. Keep sweatin'!
  6. From what I can gather, probably. Apple almost always has a special event at the beginning of September where they introduce the new iPhones + 1 or 2 other devices. All of the insiders are expecting the iPad Air 4 to be announced at that event this year. If you hold out for it, you'll likely get it by the end of September.
  7. I'm in the same boat! However, I am going to be waiting until Q4 2020 to make the purchase since the Apple supply chain insiders have been saying that the slightly smaller and cheaper iPad Air is supposed to get upgraded with an edge-to-edge screen, Face ID, and Apple Pencil 2 support by then.
  8. I know of at least 3 people who are still in the group despite already accepting offers to other schools. One of my friends was actually added to the group AFTER accepting his offer to another school. Don't put too much weight into the group size.
  9. Don’t count on what my mate said. Trust this guy fr^^^^^^ Thank you for the clarification!!!
  10. To clarify, I'm getting my info from my mate who said he recognized people getting added to the group today who were MS2s and MS3s and not in the AS. Also, I meant that newly added members were arriving in what seemed to be a 1:3 ratio of upper years to matriculants. The vast majority of the group is matriculants, of course. The group has been growing at a very slow rate so there are only a small number of upper years in it thus far.
  11. I've seen some posts commenting on the number of people in the facebook group, so I felt a need to mention that I know of two people in the group right now who have already accepted offers at other schools. Thus, the number of people in the facebook group is not a good indicator of class size. It is a much better indicator of waitlist movement (even though it seems that 1/4 people who get added to the group are upper-years at this point).
  12. If anybody is interested, I posted a pic of 4/5 colour options last night!
