  1. Hi there! I'm not sure if things have changed since I applied but I believe at that time you had to have your degree conferred to you by December 31st of the application year. So if you're applying this upcoming cycle, you would have to have it conferred by December of this year in order for the 0.2 to be applied. This may have changed, so I would check the website and/or email NOSM admissions, but that was my understanding. Best of luck!
  2. Hi everyone! Current NOSM student here. I just wanted to try and ease some of the anxiety that I know many of you are experiencing right now. I don't recall there being any sort of indication of acceptance/rejection on OMSAS at midnight. I definitely had to wait for my email in the morning. So unless something has changed since I applied, don't get too worked up if nothing changes on your OMSAS tonight. I hope you are all able to get some sleep tonight. Regardless of what email you receive tomorrow, it will be a day full of emotion. If you don't get the news you're hoping for and know th
  3. Hi, there! If you have transcripts from out of province schools then DEFINITELY have them sent to OMSAS before October 1st (do it now). My transcript from Quebec often took several weeks to arrive and get uploaded as "received". If your transcripts are from Ontario schools, then a request will be generated once you submit your application (which is perfectly fine). I'm no expert but I applied to OMSAS for four years so I'm happy to answer any other questions you may have. Best of luck
  4. I *think* this might have been said at an admissions presentation once upon a time. I'm sure if you send admissions an email they will provide some clarity (although they do tend to be pretty secretive about the context score). On another note, I met a NOSM student from Ottawa a few years ago. I don't know details about whether they were born there or did high school there, but they identified themselves as being from Ottawa. I hope that helps!
  5. I moved back home every summer, so I only put my home address. However, I do think it's important that you demonstrate community involvement, employment, volunteerism, etc. in your home community during those summers, otherwise it might look a little suspicious.
  6. I think this question stumps a lot of people because failure can be uncomfortable to talk about and people aren't sure what type of answer NOSM is looking for (for the record I don't think there is a magic answer). I think the important thing is to demonstrate that you recognize you are not perfect, but that you have been able to learn from your mistakes moving forward. I changed my response to this question several times over the years, from very personal answers to experiences I had at work where I felt I let others down. If you can also demonstrate leadership, communication, collaboration,
  7. Hey, guys. I just thought I would let you know that someone posted on the Facebook group that they received an offer of admission to NOSM and also to another school and that they have yet to decide which offer they will accept. Just remember that it isn't a given that those last six offers will all be accepted. Stay hopeful
  8. The questions have been the same for at least the last four years. I'm not sure if that's been the case longer than that though!
  9. It is a Facebook group created by existing NOSM students for the entering class of 2017. If you've been accepted, please join! (search NOSM Meds '21)
  10. I can offer an update in regards to the Facebook group. At this time 38 people have introduced themselves, but I believe there are others who have been added to the group but not yet introduced themselves. Only one person has mentioned that they were accepted off of the waitlist. So far this is the only person I've heard of who has been offered a spot off of the waitlist... hoping that changes in the coming days!
  11. No problem! I can imagine... I'm happy to help in any way I can
  12. I don't believe that information is given. This person in particular didn't mention anything about waitlist position; however, they did mention that they were assigned to the west campus but are hoping to be transferred to the east.
  13. I'm quite certain you could hear sooner. I'm under the impression that if one person declines their offer, someone on the waitlist is notified shortly after. If you look at the waitlist thread from last year, people started receiving acceptances off the waitlist a few days after first round offers.
