    haha thats a good plan! I KNOW I'm going to chicken out and not want to check at midnight for Western. I'm planning to sleep in so that I definitely don't have to wait for the e-mail in the morning, then in my still half asleep/half-awake mode just load my e-mail and have it pop up 

    Yeah getting the midnight Western waitlist icon and then having to wait for the waitlist rank email 9 hours later feels bad

    It’ll be on your launchpad but you’ll get the email to your ualberta email notifying :)

    This is embarrassing but... Do you know where to find our uAlberta email adress? Is it a standardized firs name/last name format?

    Thank you for your response. Does the weighting formula use the OMSAS GPA or the GPA calculated by the school? I'm guessing OMSAS or else what would be the point of calculating it if the school didn't use it but I just want to get clarification.

    The weighting formula for which school? In Ontario if you apply to all 5 schools, some applicants will have a different GPA at every single school.

    Dr. Otter are you saying that the OMSAS GPA is simply reported and then schools do their own calculation? I spoke to admissions at Queens and was told they use the OMSAS GPA for their screening so in a way it does really count? Do you mind providing a reference I can read to confirm if you have one? Thanks!

    Your OMSAS GPA, the only one listed in OMSAS, is an unweighted cGPA. Other than Mac, All schools have their own weighting formulas. Therefore, the OMSAS GPA won't be the same as the weighted GPA used by UofT, Ottawa, Western, or Queens.
