    Ss123toy reacted to frenchpress in Manager won't let me take MCAT date off, what should I do?   
    If you call in sick, they’ll know why. What’s the point? In my experience, it’s rarely worth it to lie. I would just be frank and say that this isn’t a negotiable thing, and you will do your best to help them out in other ways, but no matter what they say you won’t be there. And if they still can’t be reasonable and insist you have to be there, peace out and find another job if that’s actually an option. Doesn’t sound like a great place to work.

    Ss123toy reacted to garceyues in UofC vs UBC   
    Full disclosure that I am a U of C WLer lol, but if I had the choice I honestly just could never pass up the opportunity to live in Vancouver for med or any degree really. Larger unis like UBC also have more research resources to draw upon if that is something you are interested in. I would pick UBC over either IP school personally (or maybe any med school in Canada honestly).

    If money isn't a huge consideration for you I would choose Vancouver in a heart beat, yes there are benefits to the shortened Calgary program but Vancouver is a wayyy cooler and livelier city, plus you're right by the ocean...I did my undergrad in a city on the ocean and getting to see that every day grounded me and was a huge energy boost. This choice is obviously so personal so you're going to need to see what aspects you value most about the city and curriculum. Full Disclosure I'm on the WL for Calgary, but I promise this in my genuine opinion lol.

    I can confirm that I also received an offer off the NWL yesterday at 4:55 EST.  It was for Windsor.  I didn't want to post until it was official. I'm still not sure what happened this year but maybe some of us on the NWL got bumped to the HWL?

    Making many assumptions here:
    1. Campus placements for the unspecified acceptances are probably made but the staff in charge of sending the emails out may have a holdup.
    2. Slow waitlist movement since all the waitlist offers are to Windsor right off the bat unless there are people who got off the WL to London and did not post here
    3. Very small HWL this year - so maybe they have already determined who in the NWL will also be getting offers and the staff in charge of contacting those people decided to do so as soon as they get the list.

    Another (hopeful) possibility is that they had a list of however many students that they need to call over the next few days and this particular officer decided to start yesterday and had the NWL batch of students?

    Ss123toy got a reaction from RBG in Waitlist 2021   
    I had pretty much considered my NWL an R so didn't take any time to think about UWO vs. UBC prior to receiving the call. I was quite flustered/shocked and wanted to take longer than 30 seconds on the phone to make that decision (because I do have the option of forfeiting my UBC deposit to accept UWO if I would much prefer UWO) so I asked them to call me back tomorrow after I had the evening to decide. I was asking because I was wondering if I could verbally accept tomorrow and take a few days to think, but after thinking about everyone else who's stressing on the WL and calling my family I've decided to verbally decline since I'm 99% sure I want to stick with UBC.

    I know I sound like a total troll rn but i promise it's the truth.. I was so confused I literally thought my application was flagged or smth at first. I think I was normal WL this was the text in my original email (received at 9:32 AM):
    Thank you for your interest in our MD Program and the effort you put forth with your application to first-year medicine at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry (Western University).
    Although you were not ranked to receive an offer at this time, it was recommended that your name be placed on our Wait List. Any offer that is not accepted will be filled by an individual from the Wait List.
    Our policy does not permit us to release any information concerning the rank order or any other information regarding the Wait List. Therefore, please refrain from contacting Admissions with inquiries related to your ranking on the list.
     
    I will be declining my offer, good luck to all. They also mentioned that London campus is full so any offers from here on out will be Windsor!

    Ss123toy got a reaction from BarbellsAndBicarb in What are some solid ways to prepare to write the MCAT   
    Spend some time browsing the subreddit r/mcat. There are TONS of resources on this site. 
    Buy ALL the AAMC online prep material. It's pretty much essential to doing well on the exam.
    UWorld is probably the best non-AAMC prep material out there. It's extremely expensive, but well worth it if this is a possibility for you.
    Most people use the Kaplan prep books. I used Examkrackers and loved them because they were short and sweet (I have a science background so I didn't need super detailed explanations).
    JW (Jack W3stin) daily passages are a good free resource for CARS. Khan Academy also has a bunch of free CARS passages. There are also some pdfs of the Examkrackers 101 CARS passages and The Princeton Review CARS workbooks floating around the internet- these were a great resource as well!
    Prep courses are NOT worth it. Just make sure you discipline yourself- make and stick to a study schedule.
    Khan Academy videos are a great free resource and they have a partnership with the AAMC so you can trust their material to be relevant to the real MCAT.
