  1. Hello, I was reviewing the new wGPA policy on UofT's website and this note about NCR/CR courses stuck out to me. CR/NCR or pass/fail courses are removed first before any numerically graded courses as per the wGPA. These courses still count towards your full course load. Winter 2020 CR/NCR courses are excluded as an exception from being dropped according to the wGPA. This sentence confused me. Will I still be allowed to drop 2.0 FCE in addition to my P/F courses in Winter 2020, or are they included as part of 2.0 FCE??? I currently have 1.0 FCE as P/F in my Winter semester and I'm worried that this means I'll only be allowed to drop one more FCE...
  2. So some people got rejected instead of being placed on a waitlist? What does the rejection e-mail say?
  3. Yes you can! As long as the other timeslot you want to switch into is open
  4. Status: Invite Time Stamp: 12:17PM Location: IP Stream: English/MD MCAT: 129/127/131/130 - 517 cGPA: 3.93 Current year: 4th year undergrad EC: 1+ year research w/ no pubs, some posters, volunteering, mentoring, and some mental health advocacy
  5. So I got rejected from Western today with 127 CARS (517 total) and 3.97 2yrGPA. It was super painful since I never thought they'd EVER lower their cutoffs from a 128, but they did and I STILL got rejected, haha. I haven't been very successful at other schools either and it's looking more and more likely that I'll be applying again next cycle. I don't have the physical or emotional capacity to take the MCAT again because studying for it over the summer has taken such a toll on me in past years and prevented me from pursuing other opportunities (research, volunteering etc.) I don't want to take the MCAT again, but should I take the risk of hoping the cutoffs stay the same next year and don't go any higher?
  6. TIME STAMP: 7:57PM ET (Monday 9th Dec 2019) Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets, No Interview Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): 89.16 MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 517 (129/127/131/130) Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): UG Geography (IP/OOP): OOP NAQ Range: 0th-25th percentile TFR: 45 (Can someone help me get my AQ and NAQ off of this??) My Result Honestly not very surprised!! Was expecting it based on the calibre of applicants I've seen on here. I feel like *maybe* I could've gotten the second quartile if I worded my experiences a little bit better just based on some of the responses I've seen here. I had all the relevant experiences but they were not long-term at all (1-2 yrs max) and I have limited research experience...
