  1. Even though I am not applying (thank god for the acceptance last cycle), many people close to me are. I am very nervous and spamming the refresh button on multiple forums pretty often. I can't imagine how nerve-wracking it must be for you all.
  2. Med schools definitely do not care about upward trends. Where did you hear that @Drigs? That being said, I think you have a decent chance for Mac, Queens, and Western!
  3. I think they explicitly said it had to be within the past 6 years. Mainly, its more representative of who you are currently.
  4. I think U of T medicine addressed this in their most recent video. They talked about the decision to NOT 1) count winter 2020 for all and 2) give the option to either count winter 2020 or not count it (student chooses). @Tony_98, the second option describe what you want. You can watch the admissions recap video that states this from their website. As such, if you are planning to email the uni's, don't email U of T. Instead, I would encourage you to use the AEE for U of T to explain your situation.
  5. I will not recommend you to do this. As @TheFlyGuy has said, if you piss off the wrong people, it will bite you. For example, if your PI or someone in that department is a clinician scientist, etc, they could be in charge of residency admission. You leaving masters would be a valid reason for them not admitting you to residency in the field that the individual is in charge of, its unprofessional and disrespectful. Medicine is a small world, which is heavily linked with research. Don't tarnish your future career just to get in 1 year earlier. I doubt your department will be fine with you leavin
  6. CR courses will take up the 2 FCE room, unless its from winter 2020.
  7. I'm not too sure about pre-clerkship but from what I know it is impossible during clerkship since you will be assigned a hospital in Windsor. My advice would be to make arrangements in Windsor. In the off-chance that you are able to "switch over" (unlikely to happen), you will be grateful rather than being let-down if you aren't able to (very likely).
  8. Correct me if I am wrong but usually when a deferral is granted, that seat will no longer be available. So lets say Sask takes 100 people. If 3 people are granted deferral, then the total seat that year becomes 97 and next year becomes 103. Let me know if I am wrong but this seems to be the case when I check the statistics from other schools.
  9. My thoughts: The reason why I think Western has less wait-list movement this year and last year probably has to do with the change in evaluation criteria. Maybe lesser overlap with the other schools, meaning fewer people have multiple offers.
  10. I heard every year, some people who paid the deposit and accepted the offer bail-out last minute around July. Since you have first-round offer, you have priority in getting those spots
  11. Result: Accepted Site Location: Saskatoon (1st choice) Time Stamp: 15/05/2020 - 9:42 AM EST GPA: 3.90+ MCAT Score: 520, 129 CARS Location: OOP (Ontario) Degree: Graduated M.Sc. Interview: Thought I did ok. Will decline for UWestern
