  1. This raises a really good point that overall it comes back to problematic political influences. Both Canada and USA had institutionalized racial assimilation for BIPOC (e.g., Indigenous residential schools, Chinese Exclusion Act, labelling Asian Women as foreign prostitutes, etc.), and to be honest, cultural heritage and original language is forcibly replaced and the "westernized culture" is subsequently past on into the future. I agree that race is often conflated with other factors, but if we look towards the history of the foundation of this country, it really was race that force
  2. This may help: https://www.ouac.on.ca/faq/accept-offer-remain-on-wait-lists/ I'm not sure if you are taken off all acceptances, but in Ontario once you've respond to one Ontario school, you're remove from all waitlists, so I would assume that it would extrapolate to acceptances as well. Best to call OMSAS or the individual med schools (if you have offers from outside of Ontario)
  3. Being a multiple re-applicant (and finally interviewing for the first time last year), the annual process of writing essays, applications is really taking it's toll. I'm retaking the MCAT AGAIN (3x) to open more doors. Family is of lower SES, so my family is usually never around due to difficult work schedules. When I want to vent to friends to at least get rid of the bottled up feelings about this process, they either don't understand that feeling of being a reapplicant OR simply tells me to "give up, it's not worth it." But to me, medicine extremely worth it and I am intrinsically motivate
  4. I remember someone make a post previously stating that when they asked admissions, they told him/her that GPA is still looked at competitively, meeting the wGPA cutoff pushes you to a file review where the wGPA is still considered.
  5. Hey everyone, Looking for 1-2 partner(s) to meet up IN-PERSON for panel prep at a local Starbucks or university/college campuses in the Toronto/Scarborough/Richmond Hill/Markham regions. I am looking to do about 2-3 sessions per week before the end of February! Reply to the post and I'll DM you as soon as I can! Cheers!
  6. Came across a post on another web forum (R E D D I T) talking about how along the general process, demoralization commonly occurring within the learning setting, starting as early as they enter 1st year medicine. How true is this within Canadian medicine and what advice(s) would you insist to those who have not yet/beginning their journey? *https://www.r e d d i t.com/r/medicine/comments/a6b840/this_made_me_sad_and_angry_thoughts/ *erase the spaces.
  7. Thanks! Yeah, I emailed admissions and they said you can use a pass/fail course from the summer of one year to make up the missing course (provided it wasn't a prereq) in another year. It's definitely good to get a solidify answer on this
  8. Go to academic background A few letter grades were missing a + and they included my pass/failed grades courses in the GPA (which have a GPA 0.00) which aren’t suppose to be in the calculation.
