Hey guys, do we have any information as to how Queen's plans to use CASPer? Not sure if they would use it as a cut-off/competitively or whether they would relax any of their other requirements for GPA/MCAT due to it. Wondering what others think about this new addition to their admissions process.

Their website definitely hints at it being used only as a cutoff. I can't imagine the school that uses GPA and MCAT as cutoffs only would go and use the CASPer competitively, but I don't know anything for sure. I could see them relaxing the GPA/MCAT requirements so that its still the same number of people that pass the "cutoffs". The only other option I see is to take the 2000 people that pass academic cutoffs, and then remove the bottom x% so that there is less work for the admissions office.

With the way Queen's works, it's probably going to be closer to the latter, the GPA/MCAT cut off to get 2000 works pretty well for them, now they can further cut down and then less apps to look at. But suppose we will see once things start moving along this cycle.
