Casper: Really unsure, I think I answered correctly but only a couple sentences for each question.

OOP

RE: your CASPer. You definitely want more substantial answers than that. If you must, focus on only one or two of the questions. They're not supposed to penalize you for not answering all the questions. Just answer as many as you can the best you can. You might also want to get someone to evaluate your practice answers. If you have any CASPer prep questions  PM me.

I know how you feel. After 30 years, I've had only compliments on how I deal with various social situations, but my CASPer clearly killed my application. I've come to realize that it is in fact a test which you have to beat, regardless of what they want to make you beleive.

Thanks for your comments, appreciated!

I don't think my CASPer totally killed my app, I forgot to mention here that I did get a McGill interview with my CASPer. It's just that I think it could have been much better and was not representative of my abilities to respond appropriately in real-time situations. I am a mature student and never learned how to type, and although I'm working on it now, it's just a bit harder to pick it up in your thirties.... I'm a bit put off by a test that supposedly measures one thing but is so dependant on one's ability to type quickly. That's all. Being OOP doesn't help with this school either. Thanks guys!

First time poster here. Just want to contribute to the body of data that I often trawled in hopes of determining my chances in the past.... Kudos to all the invitees and good luck to all!

Invite/Reject: Reject

GPA: 3.72

CARS: 127

CASPer: Felt quite good: honest, articulate, sizeable and complete answers to all questions. But, not good enough to counterbalance lower GPA and CARS evidently! Who knows? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

IP, NTP, grad

students with your GPA have gotten in, maybe it was the casper exam

Super late to the game, but just thought I'd drop it here for data purposes.

Time Stamp: 2:21 PM

Invite/Reject: Invite

GPA: 3.39

CARS: 132

CASPer: Felt okay but I second guessed it a lot.  I'm a fast typer and a non-traditional applicant (very late 20s, Arts Student, management job and activist volunteering) so think the varied life experience helped.  

In Province, no grad school.
