  1. I was in a similar scenario, tutoring various 1st year courses such as physics. Ended up using a prof as a verifier. Should be fine if you give them an honest estimate of how many hours you've put in. Best of luck!
  2. If you have the time to pump out the "why you want to be a doctor" essay + the maritime connection essay, then I think you should go for it. MCAT is not given much weight at Dal, so with your high GPA and a strong connection to the east coast I think you have a fighting chance. Good luck!
  3. A few years ago a thread was made about it. It is anecdotal but there could be some truth to it this upcoming cycle (not sure how <500 scores will do, prob 4 or 5/10?). 503-504 = 6/10 505-510=7/10 511-516=8/10 517-522=9/10 523+=10/10
  4. There's a range, i.e. 505-509 = 6/10 (I forget the specific ranges). I would go with the 512 because it is more balanced... I don't think 512 or 513 sits at the ends of different score brackets anyways, so it shouldn't make a huge difference. Good luck!
  5. It looks kinda golden yellow? uhhhhh EDIT: nvm we're gonna be bumblebees
  6. Yea, that should be your B00 number from the last time you applied (i.e. B00865932).
  7. OP, you posted just this past April asking about whether you should mention your hobby for brewing beer in your med school apps/interviews... are you really in clerkship? Doesn't add up + sounds like BS to me lol.
  8. I'm still waitlisted and have not received any emails saying the class has been filled.
  9. Probably will be posted on instagram @cma_docs around early July? I am not entirely sure...
  10. "The majority of Med 1 Classes and tutorials will be delivered in online format." I interpreted this as fall and winter, but I hope you're right that it is just fall until restrictions ease up / vaccine becomes available...
  11. If you have a strong Maritime connection, I'd say give it a go. I have heard that the essay is very important for OOP applicants. And yes, you are correct in that Dal would round your GPA to a 3.9.
  12. Sure, the PDF an advisor gave me says earn up to 45,000 bonus Scotia Rewards points in your first year for the Passport Visa Infinite Card and 30,000 for the Gold American Express Card. So combined total of 75k.
  13. I'm about to apply for Scotiabank's LOC. I heard that there is the potential for more offers/perks in June or July. Can anyone speak from their personal experience whether it's worth waiting for such perks with Scotia? i.e. other free stuff (on top of the free $300)
