  1. I used family members for 2 or 3 items and was accepted last year. I think they understand that certain valuable experiences aren't really formal. If it's something that you feel is important to you, I say go for it.
  2. I'm hoping to bike to campus on most days once things are open again and I was looking for a good high visibility jacket or vest..... CMA did me a solid with this one.
  3. Has anyone signed up with Scotia since July 1st? I noticed that their points perks are only offered for new accounts set up prior to July 1st. I assume they will have new reward plans available soon but would love to know if anyone knows what might be coming.
  4. This is a bit disappointing but understandable and at least somewhat expected. As an OOP who is locked into being in Edmonton at the start of the fall semester its tough, but it also means I can come back home anytime for the holidays and be all set up for what will hopefully be different circumstances in the winter semester. I assume there is a bunch of 2024's from Edmonton or who will be living in the area regardless of the virtual semester. Maybe we could come up with our own safe ways to get together for study sessions or just general social time so we can get to know each other better
  5. I've contacted a Scotia advisor based on the agent list that's floating around this thread somewhere. The agent for U of A is no longer working in that department so I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for an agent that they've been happy with? I'm currently in the Toronto area if that makes a difference. I can't help but feel like never get the best deal with these types of things so research on my end and great agent who knows what they are doing would be great. Thanks!
  6. You're definitely not alone. I've been there myself. You need to take the time to feel those feelings but when you're ready, remind yourself why you have those feelings. You wouldn't feel disappointed and frustrated if you weren't passionate and determined to get to where you want to be. Its hard to feel like you'll get there sometimes but if it means anything, as an outsider looking at your stats and the fact that you're IP, you're soooooo close. I've come to realize that this process has an element of luck to it. I know that seems unfair, but if you keep on going, maybe luck will fall on you
  7. Result: ACCEPTED (timestamp: 7:09pm est) Geography: OOP (Ontario) GPA: 3.95 MCAT: 509 (128 CARS) Degree: B.A Geography/Anthro/Bio EC: Im a mature student and had a long term career before embarking on this. I think that may have helped and offered a lot of life experiences. I had other diverse EC's but I never did anything that I wasn't passionate about. I guess I'm trying to say follow your passion rather than any "pre-med roadmap" and be yourself! Interview: This was my first and only interview after 5 pre-interview rejections

  9. My status is still showing that I'm on the waitlist too.

  11. Does anyone know if there is any chance of getting off the waitlist at this point?
  12. I believe so... No idea how many are on the waitlist or what the movement is like though.
  13. TIME STAMP: 9:10 Result: "decision pending" - waitlist wGPA: Either 3.85 or 3.91 depending on if they considered my letter of EC MCAT: Not submitted ECs: Had a long term career in a non medical field and started my own business. Some sports and music as well as the usual hospital volunteering and community work / mentoring. Some research but no publications.

  14. In my mid thirties and I also struggle with some contacts. Many people have moved on in the years or the company itself no longer exists. Thankfully most of my more relevant and impactful work has been more recent. I'm not sure whether or not they can reach someone regarding a paper route job is a make or break . Makes this process that much longer though. Lots of us going through it with you.
