  1. alot of them (not all) require it be part of a degree so u should be good but verify indiviually w/ each school u r interested in
  2. winters in Ottawa are terrible, other than that its a great city. that's my input on that but personally, Western's curriculum seems like the dream come true and I think the pros outway the possible cons of the transition problems
  3. Try using a VPN, I have experience of western student portal not working abroad but that fixed it
  4. Edit: going to review my exam tomorrow but looks like a lost cause as final grade has already been sent it. thanks guys. gonna take this painful L especially considering the circumstances that lead up to me not doing well on the midterm. 3.69 being that close hurts
  5. amazingly the pm101 averages are really close to the average stats given by Schulich. but i have a feeling especially for GPA averages are going to be different now especially with ABS factor
  6. Are you applying for paid or volunteer opportunities? It's easier to get a volunteer opportunity if you really want some research experience under your belt, alot of places are desperate for free labour. Emailed a major research institute/hospital attached to my school and got a response & was interviewed within a week. Paid positions are harder to get, I was able to get a paid position for this summer but I highly believe that was because of my volunteer research experience (only 3 months so far) + I had previously volunteered for the organization hosting the research for 2+years
  7. anyone in Ottawa currently studying for mcat?
  8. legal action been done multiple times and does not lead to much but your name being tarnished! although painful, the school reserves their right to make admission changes https://www.macleans.ca/education/post-graduate/medical-school-rejection-violated-my-charter-rights/?utm_source=macleans&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=recirc&utm_content=tag_list
  9. I think the main problem here is that because of the lack of transparency it's hard to "identify why"
  10. for conditional acceptance based on one conditional year. is acceptance/waitlist position only based on GPA of the conditional year or do they factor in the part GPA of the current year. like say hypothetically someone had a lower gpa 3.74 on the conditional year but a 3.9 on the current year. would their post-interview rank be based off 3.74 and the updated first term marks?
