    Oh hmm that's really interesting... crazy to think that the OOP 3.9+ and 510+ applicants all had CASPer below whatever cutoff dalhousie had decided for this cycle, even if they made the cutoff the mean score instead of 1.5 SD below it. I'd be really interested to know how big a role CASPER played in this year's cycle... @all OOPs that received an interview: how did CASPER go for you guys? Would you consider it one of the strengths of your app?

    I think OOP was still dependent on the maritimes connection essay rather than CASPer. I think the CASPer cutoff can be used to explain IP rejects, who are supposed to be guaranteed an interview once they pass cutoff.

    Am I crazy or did the website used to say that the Casper cutoff was 1 (or maybe 1.5?) standard deviations below the mean but now says it "will be adjusted annually depending on interview capacity and the size of the applicant pool"? For some reason I thought that they had a specified number before.

    You're not crazy, I definitely remember this as well. 1.5 below SD, I even calculated the percentile for this.
