  1. Posted first in OMSAS general but realized this might be a better place... Hey, Got into a 1 year masters program for 2020/21 and want to apply to all Ontario schools for Sept 2021 (haven't decided if I also want to try out of province yet). Only problem is - the finish date for coursework for the Masters is intended every year for July 31. This year, because of COVID, that date was pushed back to Aug 7 2020. I have spoken to the admissions coordinator of the masters program about this and they can't guarantee that in 2021, the program will finish by July 31 (COVID related problems might cause a delay again). I emailed all the Ontario med schools to ask if they would be okay with a later date (if it was pushed back one week or less due to COVID) and all gave the OK except for Queens and Toronto. Does anyone think that if I got into either of these schools, and my program was delayed completion by like 4 days they would rescind my offer? and does anyone know for out of ontario schools? Any advice is appreciated!!

  3. @waitwhxt @hotcrossbunny did you hear anything today?
  4. hey congrats!!!! your OG created time stamp was 7:41:43 right? also just out of curiosity how long do you have to decide?
  5. Where did the 41:28 and 41:30 come from? Maybe i'm looking at the wrong thing but I see this on @newmy88 excel sheet?
  6. CONGRATS!!!! What time did you get the email at?
  7. were you emailed today By Chantal to ask if you were available?
  8. Hi! Thanks so much for all the great advice. I really appreciate it. I also hope I hear from Chantal haha but I'm around the middle of the timestamp theory so .. we shall see. The Sept 28 MCAT date test results are released on Oct 28 which is 3 days before the Nov 1 Deadline (and the last date possible for applying in this application cycle). Unfortunately, there are no other dates in Ontario around end of Aug (only in Rochester NY and I was worried the borders might not open up in time?). Seating sizes were reduced to compensate for social distancing and that is why this year Sept 27/28 dates were added. Thank you again!
  9. Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing okay and enjoying the good weather (if you live in Ontario haha). I had a question about masters programs and just generally looking for advice. I am currently on the good WL at UO, but I'm not holding my breath and want to be prepared in the likely scenario I do not get in. I haven't written my MCAT yet, this is my first cycle and therefore I could only apply to Ottawa this year. I will be quitting my job and writing my MCAT this summer (Sept 28) if I don't get into Ottawa. I've been accepted into a 12 month masters of management in AI (this is my career back-up plan) and am trying to decide whether it is worth doing it or not. I want to give med at least 1 full try (i.e. write MCAT and actually apply to all 5 schools). I could defer the masters program 1 year but then i would not able to defer a rather significant scholarship. I want to do the masters program because 1. I find it interesting and 2. I think AI will be relevant to med in the future. However, I come from a sciency background and am not sure that I will be able to maintain the GPA I had in UG in a more technical program that I have never done before + the first month of the program I'll probably be mostly focused on MCAT studying. If i was accepted to a school next application cycle (class of 2025), would I have to maintain the GPA i applied with to maintain my offer for Ontario schools? or is it different when its a masters and not UG? Also - does it look bad to do a masters program that isn't thesis-based or specialized in health? Hopefully this question makes sense sorry it was kind of a ramble and any advice is appreciated.
  10. forwarded to gmail then clicked on the get original button then control F for creation time it was at the very bottom of the email, let me know if you found it!
  11. Don't say that yet - it is so early !! I'm after you in timestamp order and I still have SOME (albeit slim) hope!!!! If by 30th i haven't heard that is when my hope will start to diminish ahha
  12. also not that it is really important but i wrote the wrong time stamp and cGPA here hahah im 7:41:42 (i have outlook and i didn't realize i had to forward to gmail) and my cGPA is 4.00 (didn't realize that only last 3 years counted) i am an idiot sorry ahhaah AND for anyone looking at timestamps on outlook... my outlook one said 11:42:13 even when i went into the 3 dots thing but when i forwarded to gmail i found this: creation-date="Tue, 12 May 2020 11:41:42 GMT"; modification-date="Tue, 12 May 2020 11:41:42 GMT"; !!! SO remember to forward to gmail!!!!!!
