  1. I like that Ottawa is giving CASPer so much weight, as much as an applicant's GPA!
  2. You are reading way way too much into it. Why would I want to encourage more people to prepare for the CASPer test? If more people prepare, it decreases my chances of standing out. I'm agreeing with those on here who keep posting that people should NOT prepare or do practice tests for CASPer in advance.
  3. Seems anyone can get in when they lead a fairy tale life though
  4. That's great. May you live happily ever after in your fairy tale life.
  5. I wish you would stop weaving your words ....your direct comment to my initial post in this thread about doing practice casper tests was .. " I doubt that'll help you much" ... You made it clear you believe I'm wasting my time by doing practice tests .... so don't try to change things around now by saying "I never said not to take a practice test".
  6. Who said anything about CASPer here? We're talking about CARS.
  7. I'm simply agreeing with you that I wish more applicants took your advice regarding CASPer. Just because I'm going to practice for CASPer, doesn't mean I want other people doing it so if by me telling people they should follow your advice and not practice, you misinterpret them into that I'm advocating that others should be practicing, then you're pitch is one and the same. So just two days after posting that you didn't get in, you actually got in. How magical ....
  8. why even bother practicing?
  9. It's a competitive process and my goal is to get accepted, not to come across as being friendly. I have no idea why premeds tell other premeds what they do about CASPer but I'm not going to complain. I think it should be encouraged. May the best candidate be successful.
  10. I would tell them until after you legally change your name within the first few weeks.
  11. Heard that the class is "tentatively" full now. This is from a person who knows an individual that works in the "admissions" office.
  12. MacMed2018, I know you mean well, but we need more premeds like Sun and Moon discouraging other premeds from using practice CASPer tests.
  13. I'm just curious to know how you were able to find out that your CASPer ranking dropped dramatically because I thought that applicants never see their rank?
  14. A lot of people on this forum tell applicants not to prepare for CASPer. Personally I love it when I see comments like that because then they go in and realize oh .oh .. this is a lot harder than I thought, and run out of time on all sections.
  15. does that mean you have the option of writing CASPer twice then? 1x for Dal and 1x for Mac? strange.
  16. Good. I wish more people on here would post comments like this to deter applicants from preparing for CASPer like you did.
  17. I would go with RBC. Scotia is really anal about everything and it's really annoying.
  18. Just wondering what everyone thinks about the fact that McGill is now using CASPer? I'm planning on doing a full length practice CASPer test every weekend starting July so hopefully that will pay off compared those are just going to write the test without any preparation.
  19. From a fairly reliable source, UBC is almost at the final stages of implementing CASPer for this cycle. Let's hope and pray that it doesn't happen. Might not be a big a deal even if they implement last min this cycle, cuz it seems like most premed101ers are highly gifted and can do well on CASPer without any preparation.
  20. I heard that they each score you independently but that they do discuss you as a group.
  21. I was at a meeting and it was mentioned that Ottawa is considering weighing CASPer 30% this year of the pre-interview decision. I guess we will find out soon enough. I love hearing that people should just write CASPer without any advance practice as that gives those of us that have been practicing a better chance.
  22. I really hope more applicants take your advice and just go in without preparing for CASPer :).
