  13. Allo, peu importe ta crc tu devrais appliquer, tu ne sais jamais de quoi la « compétition » aura l'air et en plus avec les nouveaux critères d'admission la crc est beaucoup moins importante qu'avant, dans le pire des cas tu te fais refuser, c'est pas plus grave que ça, mais au moins tu ne regretteras pas de ne pas avoir tenté ta chance. Par exemple, je sais que tu vises med, mais cet automne la plus basse crc admise en pharma à ulaval avait 32,552, ce qui est incroyablement bas et du jamais vu en pharmacie, par contre cette personne a tenté sa chance, a excellé au casper et a été admise.

  25. sorry, I couldn't resist. I am back. and still waiting. it seems they are releasing one by one (not per group like last year). also there seems to be no logical order (not alphabetical, not category), my wild guess is that it depends on when you applied (first get an update first and last ones get answered last, not rolling admission like in the US though). Keep hope alive!!!

  26. Ne désespère pas ! Aussi, il est courant que les gens commencent leur pratique Casper 2-3 semaines avant la passation de leur examen, donc tu es largement dans les temps. De plus, objectivement, tu as une chance à Laval si tu fais un bon Casper, car les notes ne font pas partie de la sélection des candidats. Il faut juste que tu aie une cote R de 33 pour être admissible. Tu peux avoir cette cote R même si tu as environ 31,31 pour cette session (si ta session 1 et 3 ont le même nombre de crédit, mais tu peux faire le calcul assez facilement. Bon succès !

  34. Hi, I'm a master student also. My GPA at McGill is 3.82 (near as yours). I believe that in francophone universities (I don't know about McGill) when you have a PhD your baccalaureate grades are no longer taken into account and it's just your thesis that counts. In my case, I'm planning to do another undergrad (like nursing) because I don't like research and I want to have a plan B (If I'm never accepted into Med I prefer becoming a nurse that staying in research). But if I would like research and if it was my plan B career, I would do PhD without hesitation.

  47. 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
