  1. Holy shit, as someone who's planning to apply in the next 2 years. The stats of people who are rejected so far are crazy high and is scaring me to death as an IP @_@.
  2. So from my understanding, for U of A, a full time is considered at least 9 credits each semester(Fall, Winter), although they require you to at least have 1 year of having 15 credits(5 course) each sem. I just started looking at Calgary's definition of full-time again, the only thing i've seen so far is this and I can't find it anywhere on the application manual if there's a minimum number of required courses specifically taken at each Fall and winter semester: Does this mean that U of C considers an academic year full time as long as its reaches the minimum 24 credits regardless of how many credits you take for each fall/winter semester? I just wanted to clarify since right now I'm taking 5 course each sem(15 credits ea) but i'm considering dropping 2 of my course right now in fall which would result in me having 3 course(12 credits) taken in Fall and still have 5 course during winter(15 credits) which would still all add up to 24 credits taken for this 2019-2020 Academic Year. I just wanted to know if even if I drop to 3 courses in the fall and still do 5 in the winter, would they still consider that as "full-time".
  3. Oh that's actually a big change, their full time academic year is now even less than U of C's. Personally this helps me since I had a good first year GPA wise but i only did 3 courses each semester in my 1st year, while my 2nd year wasn't as good. I wonder if they still rank people who have 4 courses or 5 courses during their fall/winter semester better than those who only did 3 as a sign of having a better experience of having a rigorous coursework that could potentially prepare them better for the MD curriculum?
  4. In this case, a full time in fall/winter is 4 courses each right? Is this a recent change? I've always though U of C med has 4 courses each sem as full time while U of A's full time is 5.
