  1. Still says being screened for consideration of full file review as well. Hoping for an update on the blog soon, its been a while!
  2. Hello, extremely late to the party but I would love to participate
  3. Also still says being screened for consideration of full file review for me
  4. You have already submitted so just wait and see what happens, there is literally no good reason to withdraw your application at this point unless you are having second thoughts on med in general. I know people that got into calgary last year with a 124 CARS score
  5. Congrats on the admission, you should be proud! I know that I will have to work on my interview if I am lucky enough to get one again, but I feel like my entire profile as an applicant needs work lol. Honestly, I am interested in the subject material of my degree, but I would be lying if I didn't say that I'm having a really bad time. I feel overwhelmed, the profs and program staff are very "old school" for lack of a better word and don't seem to care about us whatsoever. It's been a pretty bad experience so far. Even if I wasn't applying to med, the thought of failing a course is on my m
  6. Losing the job offer and not getting an interview or acceptance yet again is a very real possibility. I'm not worried about my GPA dropping slightly; I genuinely think this program could drop me to a ~3.5-3.6 wGPA from my 3.87 wPGA (hence a third of the cohort literally getting Fs on their transcript). Even getting an interview involves a huge amount of luck, but I can't help but feel that my GPA dropping would basically be the nail in the coffin. You almost need to meet a certain threshold to even have luck be a factor if that makes sense. Perhaps the experience I get from my new job and duri
  7. Hey all, I am in a precarious situation and I'm in desperate need of advice. Long story short, I am currently entering my third application cycle having only received one interview invite during my second cycle to U of C. Having been waitlisted last cycle without receiving an offer in the end, I started a 1 year course based masters degree. My impetus for pursuing this graduate degree was twofold: I needed to establish a career for myself, and the subject matter of my graduate degree really interested me. I spent a gap year (last year) working and making not much above minimum wage, so th
  8. As pessimistic as this is going to sound, grade inflation (if it does in fact occur) will certainly have repercussions. The process is just too competitive and saturated for it to not matter. Significant inflation would almost certainly result in some people not getting interview invites that otherwise would have. I wish this wasn't the case, but I can't see it not having an impact
  9. Hello all, I am a three time reapplicant looking for some feedback on my application. This process has been grueling to say the least and I want to put my best foot forward going into this cycle. If anyone is willing to look over my app or wants to exchange apps with me, please don't hesitate to reach out!

  11. Been wondering this as well, I don't think the blog has mentioned anything
  12. https://wpsites.ucalgary.ca/mdadmissions/2021/06/30/re-class-of-2024-officially-full/ Looks like its over. I wonder how many WL offers were made. Thanks for toughing it out with me yall
  13. I would think it would only be a few days at this point given how close we are to classes starting, but the slow movement would suggest otherwise. Only someone who got a waitlist offer or a staff member can tell us at the end of the day
  14. Anyone else shocked that the class supposedly hasn't been filled yet? Orientation literally starts in like 10 days. I presume that at least one of the two final offers that were sent in the last blog post was turned down given that we haven't had any updates since then. I know its basically over but I just want closure and to be able to move on with my life...
  15. Does anyone think that WL movement is over and the blog just hasn't been updated to reflect that yet?
  16. Maybe there are still 1 or 2 seats that haven't been claimed, or there have been some people giving up their seats/deposits? I know its hard to believe at this point, but I would think Dr. P would have posted something otherwise. Maybe its just wishful thinking on my part...
  17. I'm sorry my friend, it's definitely a terrible feeling. I keep thinking about all the great people I met while applying this cycle that will likely become periphery contacts since they are starting med and I will be somewhere else. The FOMO on the med experience and drifting away from those people sucks. If its any solace, when our time comes, we will have a new cohort of amazing people to forge meaningful connections with. Even so, this cycle isn't over quite yet
  18. Anyone hear anything today? I'm kinda surprised that we haven’t heard from Remo that the 10 remaining seats have been filled at this point. All my WL friends made it off and I want to scream into the void LOL (very happy for them don’t get me wrong!)
  19. I would like to say some hard data on that. I've heard that dentistry is becoming somewhat saturated (esp in urban areas), but I don't think we can make statements like that with certainity
  20. Congrats to everyone that got an offer earlier today! Most if not all of the 10 offers that went out today will likely be filled. Maybe the WL will move a bit with the odd person giving up their seat/deposit or turning down their WL offer, so I'm thinking its safe to say the chances of getting off the WL are pretty remote at this point
  21. I'm also thinking the next round of offers will go out tomorrow but only time will tell
