  1. I'm only familiar with the English stream, sorry.
  2. So like this isn't to shatter your hopes, but this is coming from a person who interviewed at Ottawa and was on Ottawa's waitlist 2 years in a row, eventually getting off of it the second year. I'll confidently say the timestamp theory is not a theory. It's real, as much as people may say otherwise. Based on the spreadsheet, it's most likely that it will make its way down to about the 7:41/42 timestamp, and then slowly trickle. This is based on how I saw it go 2 years in a row. The second year, I was fairly confident I was going to get an offer, and sure enough I did after the 2 we
  3. We need to stop with the “those students would be successful anyways”. They’re enabled to be successful because of them being in Mac Health Science. The program grooms them. In no way can you compare high school performance with university performance because the two are leaps and bounds different. Particular examples: they get to take courses enabling them to explore something they like, where they are aligned with the community, faculty for research, etc. All things that can be added to their ECs when applying. No such courses exist for those pursuing other science-based degrees and th
  4. Amateur. True dedication is believing something will come out over the weekend.
  5. I'm reaaalllly contemplating this too. Morale at my work is at an all time low and everyone is miserable. Holding onto that glimmer of hope that something will come but honestly whether its a yes or a no i'm probably quitting anyways lol.
  6. I'm grateful for Tati and James Charles for giving me good material to read this weekend.
  7. I'm going to go counter to the whole "just apply and see what happens" and say hold off and maybe explore other options you might be interested in. Your stats will remain the same, you'll only build more experience. After all that if you still want medicine, at least you'll have a lot more life experience which will inevitably aid in being a good physician. It may not change that you're just meh about it. However, I think a lot of things are blown out of proportion when it comes to finding the 'perfect' career. Every career ends up becoming a job over time and just becomes meh, but at le
  8. MMI Scenario #3: You have a physician friend who alongside other physicians started a company looking to develop medical courses. Your friend has admitted that they do not have much skill in terms of grammar, editing, and polishing PowerPoints. He said "not to worry lads, there's an untapped reservoir of premeds all looking to add something juicy to their CV. We can hire them for free because what other choice do they have! In fact, we can sit around and do nothing while they rummage through a textbook/papers and create the PowerPoints for us while we do nothing except collect the cheque!
  9. agree, though sometimes being a guinea pig works out. for example, Mac's new BDC program (biomed discovery & commercialization) basically curved/curves everything when students don't do well because they want program stats to look good (surprise, it is also a BHSc program)
  10. you ask for brutal honestly, but there's nothing people can be honest about because you're being 'elusive ooooo'. why are you even here? honesty was them telling you you're being deceptive, and then you were as salty as your salty gf (in your words) when you were called out. Literally a 1 point difference on the MCAT can make or break your application, so when you report 510 vs. 516 that's a big deal.
  11. us: UoT can't possibly let us know this late! UoT: hold my beer
