  1. i believe so!! mine still says "Requested" at the moment (i only sent the request a few days ago), but the transcript i initially sent while applying (in September/October) said "Received" after a couple of days, so i'd imagine that your final official transcript will change to "Received" once it's finished processing and sent!
  2. received an offer at 9:26 am!!!!!!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh i'm still shaking!!!!!! :') super excited to meet you all and wishing everyone still waiting all the best with waitlist movement!! <3
  3. omg i’ve been wondering why bin 1 seemed so big and why there were so many higher gpas this year relative to last year (even when keeping more reporting in mind) and this theory makes a lot of sense imo!!! :0
  4. i think it could definitely at least partly be due to the forum/this thread being more popular, since the timestamp theory gained a lot more credibility last year with all of the tracking + excel documentation :^) i'm not sure about the latter (although i have been wondering about it too tbh), but regardless i'm crossing my fingers that we get lots and lots of waitlist movement this cycle!!!
  5. hi!! :^) adding my data here as well Time Stamp: 9:05:26 am (created time) Result: good waitlist cGPA: 3.95 Stream: english Year: completed undergrad Thoughts: loooool i tried but i'm not a great interviewer and left it feeling absolutely terrible :/ congratulations to everyone that got admitted and best of luck to my fellow waitlisters!!!
  6. only waiting on uottawa, and nothing for me on omsas :') WISHING EVERYONE THE BEST, I HOPE YOU ALL GET THE GOOD NEWS THAT YOU'VE BEEN HOPING FOR <3 <3 <3
  7. hey!! i've been a crisis responder with kids help phone's crisis text line for two years now and i really love and recommend it if you'd like to do more online extracurriculars :^) all of the training and volunteering is completely remote and you can take shifts on literally any time you want!! you can find the call for volunteers here, they don't seem to be accepting/training all new applicants at the moment though but it wouldn't hurt to try submitting a form if you're interested!! i believe that there are also other similar text/help lines that take volunteers in canada so you can alwa
  8. no problem at all!! all the best for your applications!! <3
  9. yes there are definitely quite a few students from toronto (and the surrounding areas), just like the user above me said!! also from personal experience (as i mentioned before i'm not in the ottawa med class or anything though), when i interviewed there last year, there were a bunch of students from the greater toronto area, and i myself am from the gta as well (and did not have my mcat written last year)!!
  10. hey!! i'm not accepted or anything but for uottawa they don't look at the mcat at ALL, so it has absolutely no bearing on your application whether you wrote the mcat or not at the time of application (or for whatever score you might have got on it as well)!! so not having written the mcat doesn't put you at any sort of disadvantage as an applicant
  11. 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!!!
  12. 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!!!
  13. 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!!!
  14. 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!!!
  15. 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)
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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!!!
  21. 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
  22. 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
