  4. Man that waitlist agony last year was brutal! Honestly the detective work we were doing (which, YES, turned out to be completely random!) was actually a fun little distraction LOL. At this point you guys, we've received interviews and that tells me that this whole insane process that leads us to our dreams is simply a matter of WHEN and not IF.

  5. Hi all, As someone who went through a brutal wait after being waitlisted at UofA last year to get rejected officially in Sept, I can assure you many of these glitches and observations are just conspiracies. Last year, we thought we were onto something about our position on the waitlist with the creation time of the letters and at the end it was all random. Remember the chance of this message appearing at random is the same as it having some pattern. Don’t let this ruin your night or your hope. Launchpad is new this year and Im sure the IT side of things is still in development. Don’t lose hope

  9. I mean, we don’t actually know what it is yet. Like it’s probably a bad sign but no one has received a letter of confirmation or rejection so we can’t say for certain if this means they got in or if it’s some sort of technology issue. I’m obviously upset, but I’m also going to wait to hear more from the u of a before I get mad about it lol.

  15. Depot Pharmacie! Mes infos: Candidat universitaire, 33.9 de CRU l'an passé mais maintenant je pense ma CRU se situe a 34,5 parce que j'ai eu 3 credits A+ (en biologie) de plus qui s'est ajouté à mon dossier comparé à l'an passé + 0,5 de bonus UdeM que j'ai reçu cette année. Mon impression du CASPer: I killed that bitch :') Je me desiste, parce que je preferes mon programme actuel en genie logiciel que pharmacie. Bonne chance aux autres! J'espere vraiment que ma place va a quelqu'un super passioné! Vous meritez tous une place! On lache pas!

  20. OMSAS only updates if you are accepted, they don't tell you if you are waitlisted or rejected! At least that's how it's been in the past. So if you are accepted, you will see an update under the offer of admission column and if you are waitlisted/rejected, you will see nothing.

  24. Tant qu'à te répondre Em_ je vais joindre plein d'informations qui pourrais t'être intéressante ou pour les autres. Tout d'abord, si ton but est de remonter ton GPA la première année c'est vraiment la plus importante comme le mentionne PharmaDD. Les cours de base comme anato, neuro et psycho sont les plus simples pour booster tes notes, car les évaluations sont très objectives (vrai ou faux, choix de réponses). Oui pour certains cours les A+ sont envisageable. J'en ai obtenu et plusieurs de mes collègues aussi. Par contre pour d'autres cours comme tes cours d'ergo ça risque d'être pl

  49. It’s worth considering too that many people with excellent grades are increasingly having very excellent NAQ scores and extracurricular experiences as well. Although there are always people that may lack some knowledge about medicine, it can be equally questionable that a subjective assessment of ECs will determine who will be a better physician. How well an EC gets rated can hinge on a persons ability to word their own activity well. The simple fact is that EVERY part of the admissions process is frustrating for someone, and it’s important to not build assumptions and resentment to those

I’m battling with this - I was fortunate enough to have a couple interviews and I keep telling myself I’ll wait until the morning to open them together but I also know that I don’t have the self-discipline to do that hahaha - I’m terrified of getting rejected at midnight and having to spent the next 11 hours in agony… But I’m gonna check because I know myself too well
