  1. I know there has been a ton of second degree threads and I've read a lot of them to gain insights. Just want to throw my stats out to see if it's gonna be worth it doing it a second undergrad. This is my 3rd cycle and I can only see the competition getting harder and harder. After 2 Rs this cycle with the schools I have most hope for, I had a very serious consideration about second degree. I'd appreciate if anyone could comment on whether this seems beneficial, and/or if there's any recommended programs. I completed my UG in 2019 with the following GPA breakdown (not including
  2. Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time): 8:36 PST Result (i.e. invite or regrets): Regrets GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): 87.27 MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 514 (130/128/128/128) Geography (i.e. IP or OOP): OOP ECs (i.e. brief rundown of Research Pubs/Presentations, Awards, Employment, and Non-Academic Activities - also Rural stuff if you want/if it applies): MSc completed. Some research (2 publications, presentation), awards, a few different volunteer, employment, lab research assistant. NAQ Range (i.e. what quartile you fell in
  3. I was the early app last year. I didn't receive regrets until all regular invites come out the day after. So I assume we will know by the end of tomorrow if it's an R
  4. Hey! I'm defending my thesis soon for a MSc degree at IMS so I can comment on some of your questions. 1. It is possible to take undergrad courses. The enrollment is a bit more trouble since you need approval from several places, but it is not impossible. 2. Depending on your supervisor and the lab workload, it is possible to take 2-3 courses per semester I think. But you need to gain the approval of your supervisor first I believe. I believe most of them should be happy with that as long as you can finish the lab work and thesis-related work. It's a quite flexible program since the p
  5. Check this post earlier. From previous threads it seems that OMSAS only changes if there is an offer, but not WL/R. So for those waiting for Mac, only getting A would mean an updated OMSAS at midnight I assume...
  6. I think I checked yesterday and the Response column was there? Or maybe I checked 2am this morning or something. I wouldn't read too much to it either.
  7. https://takealtus.com/faq/ Can I receive my quartile score for past completed Casper tests for previous admission cycles? No, applicants who have completed Casper in admissions cycles prior to 2021-2022 will not receive their quartile score. Starting in the 2021-2022 admissions cycle, applicants who have completed their Casper test will receive their Casper quartile score approximately 1 month following their test date. Hope this brings some good vibe for us burned in this wait
  8. Haha same here! Also started job hunting and revising CVs in case I need another gap year. Only the news that we will receive CASPER quantiles since next cycle makes me feel better about having to do this all again...
  9. I now start to have really realistic dreams about getting R and start to lose my positivity about this... Before I was like "well I have 50% chance to at least get a waitlist that is not bad" now it is "oh no I have 50% chance to be rejected". Any advice on how to deal with those negative thoughts? I can work on controlling my thoughts when I am conscious but when unconscious they are just wild lol
  10. Anyone thinking about "withdrawaing choices" on OMSAS for those schools already rejecting us pre-interview? Just so I can be less hurt on the day "To be fair I officially rejected you all first"
  11. Saw somewhere else that people received invite around 9:45ish. Anybody else? Or is that a troll? Edit: doesn't sound like troll since I see more coming up receiving about 20 min ago.
  12. Result: Regrets Time Stamp: 12:03PM EST cGPA/wGPA: 3.80 Year: 2nd Year MSc MCAT: 130/128/128/128 ECs: Probably my weak part, 25-50 percentile for UBC CASPer: should be good - got invited for Mac with 3.80/128 Disappointed bc I thought my CASPer went well and I may have a chance. I guess probably EC is pulling me behind. Congrats for those getting an invite and good luck on the interviews!
  13. Time Stamp: 3:57 pm EST Invite/reject: R IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.85 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 514 (130/128/128/128) Essays (X/8): 8/8 and wrote About You. Worked on them quite a lot and asked several people to edit. But I know my ECs are not strong in terms of the length and variety. Was also rejected yesterday because not meeting academic cut-off where I did. Upon emailing them they replied today and said my non-academic is not competitive enough. Glad that they give this timely response and I hope they truly gave it a fair consideration. Anywa
  14. Wondering the same thing. How would them make that call and would those essays be rated in the same criteria as before? It's frustrating that I spent all so much time and editing on the essays and they didn't even read it because of a mistake. Hope we can hear back from them soon!
