  1. Hello Kiwanja, I am an Ontarian living in Quebec--came here for graduate studies at McGill and am currently working at the MUHC. Have you tried applying to the French schools? I think you would make a strong candidate especially given your veteran status. Also, university of Ottawa, which is in Ontario, has a French stream and Northern Ontario likes to attract Francophones when possible. As for French recommendation letters, French is one of our official languages, and most schools accommodate for that regardless of the province. But reach out to the universities' admission offices
  2. Time/Date: 11:33am March 25, 2019 Result: Refused (MD, graduate applicant stream) cGPA: 3.5 (I had a very serious extenuating circumstance for which I wrote an academic explanation essay, but I guess it was not good enough) MCAT: 519 (Phys/Chem: 129 | CARS: 130 | Biol: 130 | Psyc/Soc: 130) Publications: 2 first author; 1 third author; 20 peer-reviewed international/national and local abstracts published; 10 oral presentations internationally and nationally, for which I received multiple best presentation awards. I held multiple research grants and awards during
  3. Honestly, that is how I felt when I saw the email. I am not even upset anymore because I just wanted to know either way and move on with planning for the next cycle.
  4. One would think that they have an efficient algorithm or even a simple macro in an excel sheet that can highlight students who don't make the cut offs in their respective category, and send mass refusals, but I guess one would be wrong Re Academic Explanation Essay: myself and a peer of mine have written one. She has received an interview offer for March 30th, I am still waiting to know my fate. We have similar GPA, and MCAT scores (my score is a bit higher), we both had very compelling extenuating circumstances to elaborate on in our AEE, we're both Torontonians, currently at McGill (s
  5. You get top point for managing to break the tension, and putting a smile on at least my face with your comment! I have recently come out of cancer treatment and don't know how much more of this anxiety I can bear--it's nice to know I am not the only one who finds the process a poorly written satirical tragedy!
  6. Freedom of speech is often cited as a protection banner for views that lack perspective on diversity, inclusion and equity! Additionally, it is often forgotten that freedom of speech applies to opinions, one is free to express one's opinion, however one is not free to make up their own facts and/or misrepresent facts/evidence! @Aristotle your argument regarding lack of freedom of speech is neither logical nor accurate! The commentator freely and without undue pressure posted their opinion. In the same vein, other members posted their opinion about the aforementioned opinion. So freedom o
  7. I had to count to 10 before posting a response, and I am very grateful that the rest of my peers have taken the time to unpack the utter lack of understanding of @amir1 for the reasons many institutions' efforts to close the gender gap (in favour of male physicians) that existed for decades! @amir1 appears to be trolling the UoT forum, he posted another gross misrepresenting and misinterpreted piece about lack of "social diversity" in UoT!!! Women and non-binary gender individuals, have a long way to go to close the gap that for decades favoured male applicants. I am sure you have
  8. @amir1 your statement is neither logical nor accurate. you can claim that the UoT class does not reflect the "diversity in our society" if the said class does not represent the various socioeconomical, class, gender, ethnicity and other demographic identifiers of our society. As a matter of fact UoT, McMaster, and York university all have some of the most diverse undergraduate classes in the entire country, and it is the students of these institutions that make up the applicant pool. you can claim that the "environment of equity and fairness" is none existence in the UoT admission
  9. Wondering the same thing here: does anyone know of any refusals sent out to applicants who met MCAT cut off and have higher (i.e. competitive) GPA? Also, does anyone know how many do they interview in a cycle? Thanks in advance.
