Hey Guys!

I'm from Ottawa Ont. and I also just finished my 3rd year in BHSc at McMaster.

 

This is my first time applying and I got acceptances from U of T and McMaster (waitlisted at Queen's).

 

I had a hard time deciding between the two schools, and although I love Mac I think U of T is the place for me.

 

GPA: 3.98 (OMSAS)

MCAT: 9/14/R/13 (VR/PS/W/BS)

 

I'm also really into Ultimate Frisbee so if anyone is interested in some pick-up, let me know!
