  1. The 2016 census data suggests a shift in the demographics of Manitoba (similar to the rest of Canada). And like @IMislove mentioned, the circumstances UManitoba is trying to acknowledge extend beyond race to encompass factors including SES and family structure that would impact an applicant's academics, extracurriculars, and the opportunities/privileges afforded to them throughout this process.
  2. I had similar/lower stats and was accepted to 2 Canadian schools this year (including one that looks at cGPA). I also wrote the MCAT after graduating undergrad because I was discouraged by my GPA. I don’t think at this point you need a second undergrad or MSc because of your GPA esp because a lot of schools have weighted GPAs. I suggest writing the MCAT, seeing how you score, applying once and then re-assessing depending on if you are invited for interviews
  3. I think in order to prevent the government from imposing harsh remuneration changes on all specialties, physicians should be fair to each other and tackle income inequality themselves. Unfortunately, this proactive approach doesn't seem close to happening... Especially with the inception of the OSA.
  4. The backpacks will be revealed in Calgary on Thursday based on CMA's Instagram
  5. https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2019/06/27/theyre-ontarios-top-billing-doctors-but-for-years-their-identities-have-been-kept-secret-until-now.html The Star has begun to release their investigation on the highest paid physicians in Ontario. Thoughts?
  6. That would definitely relieve a lot of burden on professors/mentors/bosses. But I'm curious how you would distinguish applicants if everyone ranks their students as 5/5
  7. At the interview, we were told students do not pay tuition during the enrichment year. Not sure how accurate that is though. https://mdprogram.mcmaster.ca/docs/default-source/general-resources-page/research/enrichment-program-policy-09-06-2017.pdf?sfvrsn=4
  8. UCalgary is such an amazing school, but sadly I declined my offer. Good luck to everyone waiting! Hope you hear good news soon
  9. Hamilton/McMaster are not unsafe. Friends who started at Mac and then went to Western said they preferred Hamilton and felt safer there. The 3- vs. 4-year debate is probably the most important factor to consider here, as well as your support systems and the opportunities provided by both schools.
  10. Result: Accepted, Hamilton Time-stamp: 7:47 AM (but saw on OMSAS at midnight) cGPA: 3.67 CARS: 130 CASPer: Tons of practice to make up for my GPA. Used a lot of free online resources MMI: Prepped for a long time with friends and fellow applicants. Felt good about most of the stations except 2. One station I got distracted halfway through and totally blanked/missed the question. Started doubting myself in the weeks after Geography: IP Thrilled for this opportunity! Congrats everyone & best of luck to anyone on the waitlist
  11. Waitlist doesn’t show on OMSAS so don’t lose hope!! Also we don’t know if the system is showing all the offers
  12. Waitlist wouldn’t show up on OMSAS so don’t lose hope if you don’t see anything!! Fingers crossed that good news is coming
