  1. i think you definitely have a chance!!! i got an R as well but my email included no mention of being on a waitlist. best of luck, i hope you're able to interview!!!
  2. ah yeah sorry about that -- i guess you just have to give it your best guess since they can't completely confirm on their side whether the courses would be sufficient or not :/ i hope whatever you take works out and wishing you all the best for any future applications!!!
  3. got the R earlier today as well!! my wGPA is around a 3.78 or 3.79 i think and i only have my undergrad complete so this wasn't a surprise at all hehe ECs are average imo and i have nooo idea about how my essays were best of luck to everyone else still waiting to hear back!!!
  4. yes you can take notes during the interview with a pen and paper and i think that we don't get any time to think before responding to the follow-up question (someone please correct me if i'm wrong though)!! i think that the follow-up question will show up at the same time that the 2 minute timer begins to count down best of luck to you as well!!!
  5. i'm pretty sure there's no deadline!! if it's your first time using the platform though, i'd recommend popping on there a little earlier if you can just in case you face technical issues (on the other hand, if you have prior experience with kira talent then i don't think you would have to worry at all)
  6. not yet!! there's still one more wave of invites to come and i believe that most of the regrets haven't been set out yet
  7. hi!! it's no problem at all, i'm super happy to be of help the email you can reach them at for admissions-related questions is admissmd@uottawa.ca, it can also be found at the bottom of your browser's webpage if you're looking at anything in the "Admissions" section of their faculty of medicine website and regarding your question about prerequisites, as the other commenter said, you can complete them during your application year but not the summer before matriculating!! i believe they would verify your transcripts to confirm this if you were to be granted acceptance
  8. Result: invite Time Stamp: 11:10 AM EST cGPA/wGPA: 3.71/3.98 Year: completed undergrad MCAT: 510 (127/127/127/129) ECs: nothing too special i think?? i honestly just did stuff i enjoyed so i tended to have a decent amount of long-term activities but nothing groundbreaking or too unique at all imo!! some research but no pubs, a variety of volunteering and EC positions, a few long-term personal activities, one NSERC USRA, one TA position CASPer: really didn't feel great about it but i guess it went alright?? tried to prep for it a fair bit but i feel like i have a hard time typ
  9. i’m so sorry to hear that i’m sure you are a strong and incredible applicant and please know that this result doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t be an amazing doctor!!! i really wish you the best for other/future applications and for all of your other endeavours
  10. i really hope things will turn out well for you i’ll be crossing my fingers that you’ll hear good news once they email back!!!
  11. since it's been more than 24 hours now, i think it might be a good idea to email the admissions team and just inquire whether or not there are any interview decisions that have yet to be sent out and also if you haven't yet, check your junk/spam email folders -- i think a lot of people found that their interview decisions had been sent there!! all the best, i hope you receive good news from admissions
  12. Invite/Rejection: invite Time Stamp: 2:36 PM EST Location: IP Stream: English cGPA: 3.95 (last 3 years) Current year: completed undergrad ECs: pretty ehhhhh imo...... decent amount and variety of volunteering and ECs but nothing special, some music-related personal activities, one NSERC USRA, TA-ing one semester, some research but no publications Casper and Snapshot: didn't think casper went all that well so i'm really surprised by the invite!! i did snapshot too but i thought it went TERRIBLY lol i stumbled over my words for like a minute straight for one of the questions got
  13. Time Stamp: 4:30 PM EST Invite/reject: regrets IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.98 (i think... not sure which years they used for the calculation because of a program switch) MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 127/127/127/129 Essays (X/8): 8/8 + about me — probably quite weak :/ did them right before the due date because that was when i received my mcat score lol a little bummed ngl but it's alright!! congrats to everyone who received an interview, it's such an incredible accomplishment!!
  14. sorry in advance if this is an unhelpful answer, but i think the only thing i can really say in response to your question is maybe, unfortunately :/ as you said, contacting admissions would likely be the best course of action, especially since they would ideally be able to appraise from that course description whether or not it should fit their "Chemistry" requirements. personally it sounds like to me that it would fit the prerequisite (i think my general chemistry course was similar in its content) but i can't give you a definitive answer since i'm obviously not part of admissions hehe t
