  1. Hi, For those who applies more than once, did you use the same study materials (same scenarios) to practice for every cycle? If I need to apply again, I'm wondering where I'll find more materials for the CASPer test if I use everything I have for this cycle (which I will; I need to increase my chances at getting in). Thank you!
  2. Hi, I'm looking for someone to look over my answers for some CASPer questions (I can also return the favour). Please DM me if interested. Thanks!
  3. Hey guys, I'm working on my ABS and it seems like I might be missing a few things: 1. Personal activities --> I draw a lot and also paint but I don't have anyone other than my family members/friends to verify them. Does anyone have suggestions on who would be able to verify these activities or what else I could do? 2. Medicine related activities --> I volunteer at a hospital and work at a clinic. What other activities could I do to make it seem like I'm interested in medicine? I thought the ABS didn't need to reflect medical experience, just things that I'm passionate about (and demonstrate leadership roles in)? Thanks a lot for your help!
  4. Hey guys, I really need some help with the following: I had a prof filling out the confidential assessment form for me. They did and OMSAS received it but the prof didn’t tell me they’ve completed it (I guess they don’t have to as I can see that they did). I will send a thank you note but should I ask them how it was? It’s confidential so I’m hesitating and feel like I should just leave it alone. Also, How bas is it to ask if they would be my reference next year if I apply again? And finally, referees are only filling out the CAF this year right? Thanks so much, I’m just really lost
  5. Hi, I have a referee filling out the CAF (OMSAS reference form) and I need help with this one question on "are of improvement". Does anyone have good suggestions or examples of what profs usually put for that category? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you
  6. Thanks! But what do you meany they don't actually need the transcript?
  7. Hi, I requested my transcript from uOttawa using OMSAS but it says I cannot see the status of my request until I have submitted my application. Say I submit my application on October 1st, how would I be sure that uOttawa has sent the transcripts to OMSAS?? Does uOttawa even send the transcript before I submit my OMSAS application? Thank you,
  8. Hi, I'm writing the CASPer test this fall in French. I've been trying to find french practice tests online but can't seem to find any:/ Would anyone be able to share what resources they used to study for the french CASPer? Also, would anyone be willing to help me practice? Thanks!
  9. Hi, I'm applying to the French stream at uOttawa this coming semester. Is anyone willing to look over my ABS (in french) in the next few days please? Thank you!
  10. Hi! I recently asked a prof (by email) to write me a reference letter for my med school application. They agreed but also asked what aspects I wanted them to emphasize in the letter. It’s my first time applying and I have no clue what that means. I thought the prof would know better than me what to focus on (because they can tell what I’m good at?). I don’t want to say « i don’t know » because that sounds bad to me. Does anyone know how to respond to them? Any advice is greatly appreciated. —— Also, for the reference letter, do I just contact the referee through OMSAS (once they agree)? Is It an actual letter or just a form they have to fill in? Thanks!
  11. Yes you're right. Thanks! But if I take some courses like that (not a minor), they won't count towards my GPA right? Isn't that what they call a special student?
