  1. TIME STAMP: 9:05 am Result: Refused wGPA: 3.83 MCAT: 511 (129/126/128/128) ECs: VP and founder of a club, 250+ hours in clinical volunteering, 100+ non-clinical volunteering, worked multiple jobs, participated in multiple observership programs, multiple academic awards, and more. PM if you want to know. Casper: I felt pretty good about it even though I left a few spaces with only a sentence or two. Tried to provide quality over quantity. Year: graduated last year (gap year) IP/OOP/International: OOP Letter of EC: No From the looks of it, I'll be going the m
  2. Just an update on the situation, but you guys were right. It appears to not be as big of a deal as I thought it would be. As long as the activity is legitimate, there is no need to worry! Just select that you ARE the applicant when it comes to submitting the form via the link they send you (as kimin mentioned).
  3. Yeah, it just seems like more work is needed than necessary. Other schools, especially the ones in Ontario seem to be okay with letting you be the verifier for stuff like this if you have the documentation. I think UoC allows this too. However, it is clearly a mistake on my part for not paying attention to all of the instructions from all sources for the application. I'll email them to change up/add in the verifiers and hopefully they do so. If not, I understand why they would void the honors/awards section I added.
  4. Worst case scenario is that they void the honors and awards section I inputted. My other EC's should still be valid as I have verifiers for them, including my self-employed activity.
  5. I was referring to the secondary application. Didn't mention that there. Whoops. My bad. Only reason I put myself for the honors and awards was cause I have documentation for each award. The amount of awards I have come from multiple places and it just seems so much more reasonable for me to provide the documentation than for me to contact 5 people. Even if I put down only two people, they'll eventually need to contact me for the rest of the documentation for the other awards. For the self-employed thing, I put down another verifier (a client), so that should be all good.
  6. Where exactly? Never said so in the instructions for the personal activities...
  7. I put myself down as a verifier for my self-employed activity, however, I also have another verifier added to this activity as well. For my awards and honors, I put myself down as well. For both activities, I mentioned that I have documents available that can verify both activities. For both, I also added in a supporting URL as well. Did anyone else do something similar? Will this lead to further complications/implications?
  8. It seems like there are mixed perspectives and mixed results with regards to involving gaming as an EC. I'm on the verge of taking the leap and risking it. At this point, the odds are nowhere near being in our favour, so you might as well throw in a wild card and hope for the best. Hopefully, I end up with a hipster and a committee that incorporates students into the process. xD Here's hoping! Realistically, I'm planning on using these EC's, but I do want to gauge the experiences of others and what they did a little bit more before I'm 100% committed to including them. Not to m
  9. Firstly, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to write that and providing your perspective. As for the descriptions provided here, they are nowhere near complete. I'm still debating on whether or not I should include these EC's and how to do so (mostly leaning on including them at this point). As a result, I'm still in the development phase and the descriptions here are pretty much just a from the top of my head culmination of things that pertain to this extracurricular activity. In fact, I'll change my initial post just to make sure nobody else gets a false conception that those des
  10. Understood. I see where you're getting at. I think I'm able to carve out something going that route.
  11. What if they ask for the name of the organization in the application? PSL refers to PremierSniperLeague and CSL refers to Competitive Sniping League. Should I list them like that (like mention both in the same title box)? Or should I still put Online Gaming Community? Thanks for your perspective btw. I definitely agree that if this is all you have, that isn't a good thing and there are other things that need to be prioritized. Thankfully, this isn't my case.
  12. Understandable. Thank you for your perspective. That gives me a wee bit more confidence in including them on my app. I can definitely give good written justifications based on my experiences.
  13. I thought it would be exactly what it suggests. Thanks for the advice, compliments, and your perspective! @Meridian definitely brings up a good point with regards to the structure of how I represent things.
