  2. Not only I didn't see any sentiment of disrespect but I also have a hard time finding what exactly can be considered as such. Topic-wise. Our IM PD told us that multiple electives in IM usually show a student's genuine commitment to IM.
  3. Hi there! OOP applicant. Got an offer for the Sask campus and declined it. I guess, it means that not all of 6 seats for the Sask campus are filled yet. Good luck to you all!
