  1. Program: MD Result: Reject OMSAS GPA: 3.79 CARS: 128 IP/OOP: IP Casper: lots of preparation (4 practice tests) with great feedback. The questions were quite predictable and I felt it went well
  2. A couple of mine say they haven't been contacted either. At first I thought they were lying but this post makes me feel at ease. They contacted both of my verifiers for my current job.
  3. I'd say go with the rav4. Keep in mind the civic will have a smaller fuel tank, but yes, the rav4 hybrid should get better gas mileage. Toyota is the king of reliability so it would be a great long term play even with the extra price tag. Their hybrid systems are tried and true. The suv will also make it easier to get kids into/out of their car seats. One drawback to the rav4 would be its size making it more cumbersome to manouver in an urban setting vs the civic. If you can see yourself keeping the car for a decade, the extra 15-20k shouldn't be too hard to swallow. It would be better to take
  4. Thank you both for helping me discover this issue
  5. Seems like it. I have a 4.0, 513 MCAT, and 8/12 (above average) on the EC section and can't land an interview. No hurt it shooting your shot, though.
  6. Nursing will certainly help with your communication skills and bedside manner and help prepare you in that department, but it won't do you many favours in the grades department depending on how your assignments are assessed. I did nursing at McMaster and a number of our courses were graded heavily based on essay writing. You had a coin toss chance to do well or poorly based on whether or not the instructor wants to follow the rubrics . Just to give you an idea: I've had situations where they would say they don't believe anybody deserves an A+ on an assignment because there's always room for im
  7. They're contacted as soon as you input their info.
  8. I've tried all these tips and it hasn't translated to any better results. I do agree the life experience reflection is helpful and will certainly continue to update that.
  9. Thanks for that. I didn't expect any books to be useful; I'm more concerned about their simulations and if the feedback was useful enough to improve upon.
  10. I am seeking information about people's experiences with casper prep companies. Did you feel this was a worthwhile investment? I'm looking at a few different companies and am seeing a wide range of prices ($500-$2000) for what seem to be similar offerings.
  11. I just used the princeton review CARS books and some of the berkeley review when I had spare time.
  12. 2012 was burgundy woops just saw the second page of this thread
  13. I've sent an email yesterday night asking what my verdict is and haven't gotten a response. Since software testing was on Friday I'm going to just assume it's rejection time.
  14. I've never had an invite in 3 cycles. I've always been rejected from everywhere by the end of January. Still no rejection!!!! I love the suspense. I always described toronto as my lottery ticket since I'm only at 3.79cgpa (not eligible for weighting) and it really feels like it now hahaha
