  1. I'm very sceptical about this CASPER exam, I hate to rant about this but I'm seeing people on this forum and close friends that I know (who are great people) getting rejected with crazy high stats to schools that require this bloody exam. It's really not a fair assessment of "personality" especially given the bias against people that type fast and the lack of clarity on how it's marked. Also, I don't think I'm a bad person. I've worked extensively with special needs students and collaborated with families as a hospice volunteer for over 5 years and my feedback has always been positive. Maybe s

  2. For anyone who received news they weren't hoping for, it's definitely a process that has a luck factor to it. Based on everyone's stats I am sure you are more than qualified. Don't give up - you will get in! Everyone around me who persisted (with realistic GPAs) have gotten accepted into a program. As hard as it is to hear - it's just a matter of time.

  4. TIME STAMP: 11:58 Result: Invite! cGPA: 3.84 MCAT: 524 ECs: Below average I think. Lots of diverse experiences (have written a novel, made a short film, budget/solo travelling, volunteering) but little research. Year: MSc Casper: I *thought* it went below average, but I ended up getting interviews to Mac, Manitoba, and McGill despite my GPA being a bit lower than average so it must have went well. I didn't prepare for CASPer at all, but I am luckily a fast typer so I guess that helped IP/OOP/International: OOP (Ontario) Letter of EC: Yes Honestly was not expecti

Felt ECs were good and written well IP/OOP/International: IP Letter of EC: No Knew my GPA was low but still had hope. But it's ok since I have 2 MD acceptances in USA. These schools all required CASPER so it must not have been too bad since I was accepted. Good luck to e

  12. IP, refused :/ got waitlist pre-interview last year and finished my MSc since then so I was a little hopeful but it's okay... oh well, good luck everyone, I think this was my last year trying, I think it's time to move on to other areas of interest in my life There's more than one thing out there for everyone and it's okay to change interests and paths so just keep your minds and hearts open and be you! Good luck to everyone still willing to fight for a spot, follow your dreams <3

  17. Non conclusive Casper Does anyone know what a non-conclusive Casper Test means? One of my friends did the test a while ago but was invited for a personal interview with the admission committee for the selection process as his Casper test was not conclusive. FYI: The universities I am talking about solely selects candidates based on academic results and the Casper. So, being invited for an interview is quite unusual. Thanks

Year: 2x Bachelor 1x Masters - Professional tilte IP/OOP/International: IP Letter of EC: No Second time doing Casper this year. Zero stress, answered everything and was just genuine.

Good luck to all.

  24. @Hikki97 Hi! Last year I submitted my documents for IP and got an email saying they were not eligible and I need to submit other documents to prove my IP. So most likely if they don't think you are eligible they will contact you. You can always call to check why you are refused.

    I've actually scored casper, and would suggest NOT leaving the third question blank. Everyone gets 5 minutes and you are expected to manage that time. If you're still on the 2nd answer by 3:30 or 4:00 then jump to the third one, write a quick sentence or two, and go back to finish two if you have time. Even just answering the question with one line at least is worth something, whereas a blank is nothing. You get one score for all three questions in the scenario, but two great answers and a blank doesn't look as good as a great answer, a good answer and an ok answer.

    I think it's all about quality over quantity. It's better to have 3-4 thoughtful sentences that state the problem, look at the problem from multiple perspectives, and concisely state what YOU would do given the context and potential other perspectives. Feel free to PM me for more specifics! Good luck on your test. (This was my strategy- my CASPer score apparently helped me get an interview invite to Mac so I presume I did well enough!)

    Résultat MEM

    C'est logique que l'entrevue compte pour plus que 50%, vu que son score varie de 400 à 600 (donc 33.3% d'écart) et la cote R varie seulement de 35 à 40 logiquement (donc seulement 12.5% d'écart). Par une simple règle de 3, on va voir que réellement la pondération est 73% MEM et seulement 27% cote R (et non le 50-50 qu'ils semblent proposer)...

  35. I understand where your coming from and your story seems similar to my brothers. He went to a Canadian dental school, found it to be way too stressful and not worth the work (in his opinion), so he left after 1st year. Was he afraid of telling people? Of course, its natural and the biggest thing I told him was its not what people think but rather what YOU think. If you are okay with it, there is nothing wrong about leaving dental school. People will have their opinions, but at the end of the day, there will be people who support you, I can assure you of that. Your family will come around to un

    Me too my laptop charger stopped working, I had 3% battery charge when I realized this and I had to continue the test on another computer with a keyboard I wasn’t used to. Result=complete nightmare. I hope my Casper test won’t disqualify me before my application is even viewed. Still no change in status here.
