  1. Disappointing. Considering there were new options like bright blue, pink, etc and they went with one that a cohort (2013) has already had? I think I would have preferred yellow or grey.
  2. I don’t think they’d do us dirty with grey. I’m personally hoping for something bright and fun but would be happy with burgundy if they go dark/neutral.
  3. I just replied to the email thanking her for the opportunity but letting her know that I would be declining at this moment in time. And I bolded declining in the email just so it was crystal clear. She replied with confirmation and wished me luck
  4. Received an offer at 9:25 am 3.95 GPA and will be declining. Excited for whoever gets the spot! It's well deserved!!
  5. Please add my stats to the document Time Stamp: 9:05:19 Result: Good WL GPA: 3.95 Stream: English
  6. Just declined my offer. Excited for the person who is going to get that call! Best of luck!
  7. I’m team bright pink but will settle for bright blue.
  8. Accepted/Waitlisted/Regrets: Accepted! In Province (IP)/ Out of Province(OOP): IPGPA(x.xx/4.5): 4.5/4.5MCAT (xx.xx/15): 515Rural/Non-Rural: non-ruralAdvanced Academics (PhD, pubs, academic appointment): none that counted towards my score, but have a master's degree.
  9. Result: Accepted (St. George Campus) Timestamp: 9:27 EST wGPA/cGPA: 3.95- don't think I was eligible for wGPA. MCAT: 129/128/127/131 (515) ECs: Many ECs, but almost no publications/hard research. Worked at a hospital since graduating high school, presented at ethics conferences, sports, some volunteering early on in undergrad but gotta work to live y'know? Sat on a couple university senate committees and did an internship in clinical research in Montreal. Essays: I let them marinate until the last moment when I just wrote them all through from start to finish. Didn't h
  10. When I emailed twice, they were adamant about no note reading. I expressed concern that I didn’t think that was clear in communications and was worried about being at a disadvantage if I didn’t read from my notes just because I decided to inquire and get the info myself, and they reiterated that it was not allowed.
  11. Yeah super true too. I hadn’t even considered the fact that this now gives half the applicants a chance to restart but the March 13th applicants don’t have that choice.
  12. Frustrated. Wish they’d give us the option to accept the technical issues and use the score we were given. I felt great about it despite the challenges but understand people may have felt rattled and lost focus. Give a chance to redo, but give a chance to keep the original score. They’re also not giving us much time to make new arrangements. A lot has to go into home-interviews. Daycare arrangements, booking time off work, ensuring family is aware if you live at home etc.
  13. Program: MD Result: Interview Invitation OMSAS GPA: 3.95 CARS: 128 plus master’s boost apparently bumps you up 1? IP/OOP: OOP CASPer: Obviously fairly strong but it has always been one of my strengths when applying. It was my third time experiencing it so I wasn’t too concerned. Extracurriculars: Diverse and filled all the sections but fairly weak research section.
  14. It’s also possible that the person came through the Indigenous stream and just didn’t mention it. If you look at the U of M admissions statistics those stats are competitive in that stream especially with a high CASPer.
  15. IP/OOP: IP Decision: Invite MCAT: 515 aGPA: 4.5 Coefficients: One SES Also putting the time I received it because I always find that helpful for those looking back trying to figure out what time theirs will come out: 8:57 am
