  1. What Ottawa is doing is literal horse sh*t. Hundreds of hardworking applicants are confused, sad and many of us DEPRESSED for not getting accepted. I also got told on interview day that there's a good/bad waitlist. Is anyone else feeling disgusted by this unexpected change?
  2. Keep in mind that many candidates drop their waitlist spot too. You have a chance, good luck! I'm also on the good waitlist and I'd like to know stats :/
  3. My friend is on the bad waitlist. It's not a myth... Good luck to everyone!!!
  4. French Stream waitlist movement anyone? Fingers crossed for everyone on the good waitlist and congrats to everyone who got accepted!!
  5. Thank you everyone for the support. <3 Best of luck to you all...
  6. were your answers also really brief and no more than 4 sentences..?
  7. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Yes you guessed right it was an Ottawa panel... Fingers crossed and good luck next week
  8. Hi guys, I had a panel interview and the ethical scenarios given weren't controversial but oddly said to me (I would have had to take notes as she was talking..!!) and you bet.. I had no structured answer. They basically asked what would I do in this scenario but didn't ask me to say the pros and cons etc. I did answer and gave a few key points that turned out to be the right thing to do after some research. My answers came out as flustered and short (30 seconds max.. With lots of silence and thinking), and I was thinking a lot in front of them. Overall it wasn't great and I thought I did poo
  9. Thank you. You're saying 90 interviews for 48 seats so are CNFS interviews also included ?
  10. I know 2 candidates with a gpa above 9.7 (3.97+) having their interviews late March. it's a question of luck!
  11. Thank you for answering Mr Duck. Are you certain that there are 90 interviews total for French stream? Did you ask the admission office? Thank you for the clarification
  12. Indigenous students have a lower cgpa cut-off however I don't think they have reserved spots. I may be wrong though
  13. What are the chances of being admitted post-interview in the French program? 90 interviews for 48 spots? Or 90 interviews for 40 spots + 18 interviews (CNFS candidates) for 8 spots for a total of 108 interviews. Thank you for the clarifications! I am curious about the statistics
  14. Thanks Dr Duck, Do you know how many people apply to the French stream? Last year? Thanks again
  15. I read that about 100 people get interviews for the French stream, could anyone validate this? Thanks
  16. Does anyone know how many French interviews were given last year? I think there's 48 spots in the French Stream. Thanks guys!
  17. Does anyone know how many French interviews were given last year? I think there's 48 spots in the French Stream. Thanks guys!
  18. Hey guys, Interview invites should be out this week. Could anyone tell me the wording of an interview invite email? Best of luck to everybody!
  19. Is a 3.83 WGPA too low for the uOttawa French Stream? I have a pretty diverse Sketch, but my WGPA is not what makes me competitive... Could anyone help me? I heard and read that a lot of French Stream medical students had wgpas in the 3.8 range and many have lower than a 3.8 Personally I think it is a really good average, but since Med School is so competitive it's considered low... I have a trend in my undergrad too : my first year first semester was not that great but second year second semester I got all 10s even biochem... thank you psychology ... I'd appreciate any tips or hel
  20. and where do you take this information from? You can simply write "non-applicable" in the "type of publication" section. Don't discourage others.
  21. I just reviewed my sketch and I found 1 minor error in it. Clearly it's a typo but what impact does this have? Can someone help me please, I don't know how I feel about this but now it's too late to change this mistake.. Thank you!
  22. What is CANMEDS? Can you please tell me? I didn't do my sketch with that. I did point forms and it was clean and good, according to a current first year med student.
  23. Do medical schools call everything? Do they call extracurriculars like sports, music, etc? Do they call longterm activities such as volunteering in a hospital? Do they call awards? I am wondering what they focus on mainly. Exemple, do they call "300+ hours volunteering at the General Hospital" or they call things like "playing the guitar - 200+ hours". Thank you
