  1. Hi everyone, Just started M1 (@Mac) recently and I'm looking to get involved in some research, especially since our preclerkship is much shorter than other schools. Would you recommend that I start contacting PIs now or wait until I start horizontal electives/can meet potential PIs first? Thanks!
  2. I'd imagine that even if a job (or several) opened up, newly minted grads (i.e., people entering med now) wouldn't be eligible b/c there'd be so many people ahead of you--I can only assume no matter how talented, hard-working, and brilliant you are, there's someone who has all the same traits + an extra fellowship/degree.
  3. They gave me 10 days to respond, same with my friend who got in a couple of days before me. WL offers might go out in staggers b/c of that.
  4. Accepted to Hamilton! Fell out of my chair when I got the news! Timestamp: 10:05AM Thanks to everyone here for your support and fingers crossed for anyone still waiting.
  5. No idea, they already left for the day! But the call came in around 11:23/24 am
  6. A friend (not on the forums) just got in off the WL for the English stream today!
  7. Not affiliated with U of C in any way, but his pre-rejection interview letter was the kindest one I got and I think the way Dr Walker does frequent blog posts/updates on waitlists is awesome! It really shows he understands how stressful this can be and wants to minimize it however he can. Big ups
  8. It's probably going to become a pass fail thing then, since people will likely only approach profs who'd be willing to give them 4/5s. I'd imagine this won't change anything for Mac, since they don't care about LORs very much, but interesting to see how it'll shift things at U of T/other schools that normally put quite a bit of weight on the letters.
  9. Queen's and UWO take your best two years. U of T removes 1.0 credits/year of undergrad completed (not sure about grad school) Mac looks at all courses (but to be fair, the average GPA for matriculants is lower than other schools b/c they don't weigh your GPA)
  10. Your 2 year GPA puts you in the running for Queen's, and even cGPA might do for McMaster (depends on Casper, don't underestimate how much a good Casper score can tilt the chances in your favour). Also, U of T's wGPA can make a huge difference; have you tried calculating what it would be there?
