  1. Again -- sorry to hear you did not have luck with UofT but you have excellent stats and I am sure you will get in next year!
  2. Yes for sure -- and obviously UofT is the odd university out since it looks like you received interviews at all of the other schools you have applied to, which is pretty amazing! Best of luck!
  3. With such a great MCAT score and really decent GPA, I guess this does demonstrate the importance of research for UofT, but still surprised about the R for you and I am sure you will get in somewhere else (especially with your life / leadership experiences)!
  4. Agreed -- I am disappointed and confused for you too!!! Great to hear that you at least have received other invites -- does Queen's only use wGPA if you have a full course load (3 courses per term) all years of undergraduate? But you have an excellent MCAT score, your cGPA is still very high and you had a CASPer good enough for McMaster! [confused emoji] Wonder if anyone will have insights!
  5. Hello! Thanks very much for your helpful response! I agree about your ethical points -- which is why I included a "?" in the title of my thread -- I agree that now is not the time to be trying to add a new clinical shadowing experience, I was just curious if I was missing out on this, especially as it leads up to the Fall applications -- I will definitely continue to reach out to clinicians to see if I can help them in non-clinical environments... thanks again for your feedback!
  6. Hello! I am a non-traditional hopeful applicant to MD programs in Ontario, but I completed my PhD and Post-Doctoral Fellowship about two years ago and since then have been working with the provincial ministry of health -- in my undergraduate / graduate years (and even up until finishing my PhD) -- I had a fair amount of volunteering and was able to get some clinical shadowing spots with clinicians that I knew -- however, it has been a few years and before applying this Fall, I am feeling like I need to show more recent clinical shadowing -- of course with the pandemic, I am finding it ha
  7. Wow you are both amazing and inspiring for someone who is also working full-time while studying! I cannot imagine raising kids amidst the studying too -- kudos! I really like both of your tips and will work towards putting them in place for myself too -- hope you were happy with your MCAT score after all of that work and dedication!
  8. Hi Everyone! I am wondering if there is anyone who has taken the MCAT with a high score that could spend some time preparing cheat sheets and using online teaching sessions to help me focus on high-yield MCAT material. I will be studying amidst working full time and previously have a PhD, but am very rusty on the basic biochem/chemistry/physics topics that are important. I will be writing the MCAT at the end of September and I would be very interested to coordinate something suitable in terms of schedule and payment. So, if you have done well on your MCAT, are looking for some extra $
  9. Agreed -- fantastic improvement -- how did you complete your second degree? (online and/or using a lot of transfer credits?) Congratulations!
  10. Ok -- thanks for reassuring -- super frustrating to have to wait but fingers crossed it will arrive soon!
  11. Thanks for this! Is it then better to submit our workbook by email before the deadline to be safe, even though it says that it is incomplete without the McGill ID?
  12. Hello! Is anyone still waiting on their McGill ID? I have contacted the admissions office and they said it should be on its way at some point today (I submitted the request early yesterday morning) -- I have my documents all ready to go, but hope it doesn't come close to the deadline! :|
