  1. OMSAS just updated their Academic Record tab and I noticed that they have given a weighting of 0.5 to all my 1-2 credit courses and 1.00 to all my 3-4 credit courses (I went to UBC). As a result, two of my years that contained 30+ credits only show up as having a length of 9.50 instead of 10. I know that Western considers 30 credits to be full time so those two years would count as full time years but this isn't reflected in the OMSAS GPA calculation anywhere so I'm concerned about how Western will know that those two years were full time. Will they have access to my transcript to determ
  2. OOP Invite around 11:25 am PST!!!! So stoked! GPA: ~83.5 MCAT: 523 (129 CARS) Degree: UBC BSc 2020 Extracurriculars: nothing crazy, mix of short and long term (3 months-10 years), hours ranged 30-1500 for each, emphasis on volunteering/helping others as opposed to personal development/hobbies, lots of research but no pubs, worked multiple part-time jobs throughout uni Casper: felt good References: one stellar from a uni prof, one average from my volunteer supervisor So beyond grateful and excited to be receiving this invite, especially given my low GPA compa
  3. Yeah but like offmychest said, there are so many other reasons why someone w high stats might not get an interview so it would be really hard for us to know if this is the case. We can speculate but personally I don't think they would do that because the waitlist takes care of that problem for them.
  4. This could be true but I feel like this is the purpose of the waiting list right, they'd still give offers to the high stats but have a long waiting list in case they decline?
  5. Does anyone know if verifiers are called/emailed and asked to explain what you did in a particular role? Or does UofC read out/send them what we wrote in our application and ask them to confirm that what you wrote is accurate? Just concerned because some of my verifiers are HR/coordinators who don't know a lot about me personally so I don't think they could extensively speak about my specific projects or touch on everything I highlighted in my application, but they definitely would verify if they were given my blurb and just had to confirm the accuracy of it.
  6. The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) requires the University of Manitoba to obtain your consent prior to releasing your personal information to third parties. Do you want to provide consent for the University of Manitoba to share your personal information related to your application with any other third party? Does it matter if I say Yes or No here? Not sure what this means. What third parties would they be releasing my information to?
  7. This is correct- thanks for clarifying. I'm mostly disappointed with the decision because a student who took 120 credits and graduated last year will have their 30 lowest credits dropped and their (probably high) fourth term of fourth year included, while a student who took 120 credits and graduated this year will have their (probably high) fourth term of fourth year dropped and instead replaced with 15 credits from their worst year. I'm grateful that UBC does the grade adjustment and I do understand the need to drop Winter 2020 but I think the way they have decided to alter the adjustment thi
  8. Wrote an email to admissions outlining how I feel about the decision. Feel free to use as a template if you feel the same way and want to speak up about it! Also just want to say that I understand covid has been super hard for everyone and there's no good decision here, but as someone who has been waiting for AGPA for 3 years I'm crushed that I'll never be eligible for full AGPA unless I do more school. Totally understand the reasoning behind dropping Winter 2020, not really understanding the reasoning behind changing AGPA eligibility. Their decision seems to just negatively affect students wh
  9. Yeah I did! Try typing it out instead of copy/pasting.
  10. Thanks for your help everyone! I emailed them and they said to send it to profes­sional@ouac.on.ca
  11. My university (UBC) is currently only issuing e-mailed transcripts. OMSAS states they won't accept e-mailed transcripts because they aren't secure. How am I supposed to send my transcript to OMSAS?
