    • Il ne faut vraiment pas sous estimer l'influence du Casper. Il change vraiment tout malheureusement...
    • Unless you are an owner, optometrists generally wont make much more than 100k.  The side deals of % on sales of lenses declines further and further with wholesale distributers like Clearly et al continue to provide alternative routes.
    • Je suis sur la liste d'attente aussi (universitaire) et je m'apprête à signer un bail pour un appartement à Montréal samedi. J'aimerais bien savoir mon rang et avoir une idée de mes chances avant. Disons que ça m'éviterait pas mal de trouble!
    • je penses pas.. il me semble que vraiment pas beaucoup de collégien ont reçu de offres à date et la LA est pas sortie
    • C'est ma troisième demande d'admission et je ne m'attendais pas a être tellement excité que je suis sur la liste d'attente! Les 48h pour le rang vont être les 2 jours les plus longs de ma vie
    • this... i've never heard of a simpler, better advice.. c'est TLM ca! C'est un peu comme "well no shit", mais c'est vrai! Vous devez trouver votre point faible a chaque cycle d'admission!!! Comme moi quand j'etais refusé la premiere fois je savais tt de suite c'etait mon CASPer et SEULEMENT mon CASPer. La deuxieme fois, c'est l'autre coté qui m'a fait mal, les notes, LOL... Mais cette annee somehow j'ai pu dead les deux kinda
    • I'm in the same position right now too! I just finished my second year and am having trouble deciding as well. I like the idea of having my own practice and setting my own hours to accommodate my lifestyle because I'm more of a family-oriented person (which is what draws me to both dentistry and optometry). I hope other people who were in a similar situation reply so we can gain more insight into how they decided one profession over the other  
    • Il me semble que la cote R est plutôt bonne, donc ça m'étonne que tu aies été refusé directement...
    • Hi! Thanks for making this thread  yeah hopefully we hear something in the next few weeks!
    • J'ai 34,605, mais c'est vraiment le casper qui m'a permis d'atteindre la liste d'attente car j'ai été refusé directement les 2 dernières années avec la même cote R
    • Non, il se pourrait très bien que les offres des collégiens ne soient pas tous envoyées encore, donc tu pourrais être dans la 2e vague ou avec une position très avancée en LA!
    • Voici mes stats : 31,646 de CRC et 29 crédits d'ergo à 4,04 de GPA. J'ai eu un refus direct l'année passée et on m'a calculé une CRU de 33,386 pour ma CRC + 13 crédits d'ergo à 3.977 de GPA (j'ai calculé 36.4 de CRU pour mon GPA en ergo, sans bonification!). Mon CASPer a dû être très bon (je me suis pratiquée bcp en été), car comme je l'ai dit, j'ai eu des refus direct à UdeM et UL l'année passée, et cette année, j'ai eu une offre direct à UdeM et j'ai été classée 9e/511 à UL avec une CRU de seulement 34,595 Tout ça pour dire que faut vrm pas que vous prenez votre refus ou votre position éloignée sur la LA comme un échec et laissez surtout pas ça vous décourager! J'y aurais jamais cru l'année passée sérieux, donc lâchez pas !! Bonne chance à tout le monde 
    • My goodness, this guy is an absolute buffoon. Imagine getting worked up about Muslims in Newfoundland. The province is 0.2 percent Muslim and 2.3 percent visible minority overall. I'd be more worried about stray icebergs than Muslims in Newfoundland. On another note, what do you folks think will happen to him? He's currently suspended from his residency program. Will they let him finish his residency or start his "deferred" EM fellowship? Will he be able to get a license in another province? Can the provincial licensing body indefinitely suspend someone for a social media post? Will be quite interesting to see how this story develops. Does anyone know of similar cases that could serve as precedent?
    • Salut! Je suis collégienne et j’ai reçu une lettre en DMD et en pharm! Je compte céder ma place:) bonne chance à tous les autres et félicitations aux admis!:)
    • Non malheureusement je ne trouve pas le thread de pharmD de 2020, mais je sais que pour les univesitaires elle a avancé de 104 sur 114 en 2019, 56 sur 112 en 2018 et 89 sur 100 en 2017
