Time Stamp: Jan 22nd, 10:59am
Location: IP
Stream: French 
wGPA: 3.798
Current year: Completed 5 years of Undergrad 2016, Currently 3rd (last) year MSc research-based
ECs: Pretty well rounded. A few research awards, many poster/oral presentations, no pubs yet (future one for later this year may have been mentioned in reference letter instead), several extra-curriculars throughout most years with similar themes in what I'm interested in (kids, oncology, first aid, swimming/soccer, etc.). Nothing too crazy but thought it would show commitment and effort of what I hope to do in the future (pediatric oncology). 

Casper: Found it challenging cause my French was a bit rusty but to my surprise, I was able to answer all questions honestly and I was satisfied and proud with my performance as I initially didn't intend to apply. Moderately prepared by reviwing ethical concepts but I'm a pretty moral person, I think. Perhaps it did not go as well as I thought.

 

Disappointed to say the least but only forward from here. Congrats to everyone who received an interview!
