    Instagrammar got a reaction from VladTheLad in UofT- Changes to the Admissions Process   
    If they remove the MCAT then I’m all for it. If not, I find it ironic how they want the admissions process to be more accessible yet by adding Casper increase the cost to apply. This whole process is approaching (or already at) a prohibitive cost, paying more for a test (unless the MCAT is removed) is in my eyes, unfair.

    I would wait to apply because most offers tend to be announced in early June, but it's not too early to start looking. Advisors will be able to tell you most of the details of their LOC, and will generally tell you whether or not to wait to apply at their institution based on upcoming promos. (I met with RBC last year the week before the iPad offer was announced, and the advisor I met with told me to wait until the following week before applying for a LOC at any institution because there would be an announcement that could influence my decision.) MD Financial is Scotiabank now though, so I'm not sure they will be offering a LOC anymore (because their LOC would be Scotiabank's LOC, whereas MD Financial used to offer LOCs through National Bank).

    Depending on your advisor, some of them can help you bend the rules and submit the applications with just an offer letter and confirmation of paid-deposit. 
    I'm going with TD and my advisor just submitted everything for me today to try and get the $400-value promo they have for one of their premium cards. It's do-able, just hunt around for the right advisor.

    Very interesting. It seems like some changes are being implemented for the upcoming admissions cycle. Since their MCAT cutoff is already 125, I feel like they will either remove the MCAT entirely, or, just lower it to 124's. I guess we will get a glimpse of their intentions this upcoming admissions cycle.

    Queen's deadline was also 1 day earlier to accept than everywhere else (27th as opposed to the 28th of May). I anticipate other schools in Ontario will start moving tomorrow.

    UofT has alluded in their admissions video that they are going to de-emphasize gpa and MCAT in the coming years and focus more on who you are as a person.

    Instagrammar got a reaction from MashedPotato in Queens Interview Invites/regrets 2019   
    This is my third year applying (9 rejections, 1 interview), and with nothing changing, I received 4 interviews this year. I have absolutely no idea what the process is, but seriously do not give up. There is such volatility in each application year that I have decided there is no predicting each cycle.

    Again this may be purely an administrative error. Until I get an email, I am not considering this official (although I am lowkey freaking out)
