  1. “assuming you weren't listed there with the intent of presenting but then didn't actually attend“ what do you mean?
  2. I meant if I registered (paid the fees) and I didn’t go to present but my abstract was published in conference proceedings, is it worth listing in ABS?
  3. Can we list a poster presentation (registered) even when we did not attend the conference?
  4. how does UofT determine the GPA cut off for applicants with AEE? In their previous videos (2018-2019 cycle), they accepted applicants that had below 3.6 GPA
  5. Hello, I was wondering how will the current changes affect the upcoming cycle’s GPA average especially UofT’s? Will they start looking the apps more holistically?
  6. I was wondering how failed courses with NCR are viewed by UofT? At York, failed courses get NCR notation beside them after successful completion (eg. at least D). thanks!
  7. Hello, It's my first time to apply for paid summer research programs. I applied to a lab in early March and I got a response two days after my application (my stuff was being considered). I was told if there's an interest, I would be notified. It has been 3 weeks since my last contact with the lab and I haven't heard further decisions yet, can I already assume I'm not accepted? or I can just wait a little more for possible further response and also considering the global issue? Thanks
  8. Hi all, I only have two courses left to complete my degree. I saved them for next FW so that I can study for the MCAT and apply next coming cycle. I still have degree requirements to be completed this year though. Will there be an issue behind my decision? I will be having an extra 18 uni credits or so after this academic year. Thanks!
  9. when you enter a master’s program regardless of its nature, you have to finish it before you get officially admitted. Simply, your acceptance is conditional upon completion of your master’s program.
  10. Hi all How does UofT calculate the GPA under special consideration especially for those who did not have 30 credits of course load each year? thanks
  11. hello all, Considering we have had circumstances beyond our control, I was wondering if we could fill in this section despite not having 28-30 credits in all undergraduate years? tnx
  12. do med schools in Canada care if that year is just literally an extra year of study? For the cons you stated, does that mean there is no assurance in the end if I’d be accepted?
  13. I was wondering what are the pros and cons of taking an extra year with courses that don’t count anymore in your degree?thanks
  14. If the applicant had extenuating circumstances then GPA cut-off won’t matter anymore due to the weighed GPA? Just want to be clear!
  15. Does UofT have a holistic process? If so, would GPA still matter (3.6)?
  16. If I did, I would have had a second W in that course which I found more devastating(?) :$
  17. Hi all, I retook a course that I got a W from last year. I got D+ on it. Is this better than getting a W for the second time? This is a pre-req for most US schools and some CA, should I retake it?
  18. Is it bad to drop a basic science course and get a W for the second time? how will this affect grad school MSc admission? and also MD?
  19. Hi all I’m taking a life science course this summer. I got my midterm back and it’s only average. I don’t need this course anyway I’m just taking it out of interest. I’m also busy this summer so that explains my mark. I can’t promise I can spend more time for its other assessments. Should I keep this still and do well? it’s one of the requirements elsewhere. I already completed all my pre reqs and it’s more unlikely I’m going to the US. Would y’all suggest not to take any sciences even if they are interesting (unless I can do well in those)?
  20. How are these different from each other? a) Research student (4th yr course)-independent project b) Research student (summer program)- could have an independent project or a paired one with a grad student c) Research student volunteer / lab volunteer === mostly paired with a senior member of the lab, helping out with experiments; learning techniques etc I think they are all the same in terms of learning and practical experience (?)
