    1) Most important that you find a genuinely knowledgeable/helpful advisor than one who's close imo. 
    2) Not really, but often times you'll need a letter of enrollment or something similar from the school, which often can't be obtained until you're actually registered (closer to Sept). If you can get away without it then no harm in getting it going early!
    3) Can't help you here (I'm with CIBC), sorry!

    Anecdotal from people I've talked to and the experience of friends (so hopefully others can chime in on this if I'm wrong), but yeah I think osap does result in lower LoC offers, seen tit happen a few times, i.e. it does count as debt for that purpose.

    Far as I know it's always 2 weeks, so there's usually the biggest bulk of movement within the first 14 days. That said, some schools will let the waitlist move throughout the 2 weeks as people decline, whereas others will wait until the 2 weeks passes to begin letting the waitlist move (so for these schools around the 25th there'd be a massive chunk of movement). Best of luck in the wait, hope things work our for you!

    I wouldn’t read much into the button post-D-day regarding ButtonGate theories. It came and went before last year’s D-day before showing up for its intended purpose when the time came. Could be wrong, but I doubt the same glitch would happen two years in a row that specifically. Unless some folks have it and others don’t even now?

    Good luck friends. May the luck of the process be with you, and regardless of what happens don’t let the process define you. Everyone’s worked so hard to make it to this point and no one should ever forget that regardless of the outcome!

    Preach. Really the biggest factor in admissions in this province lol.
     
    I don’t have numbers on this, but last year I heard from quite a few people through word of mouth that they were leaning away from Mac, and this year (so far) I’ve heard the same, so there might be a bit more movement than usual on their wait list. I’m sure the poorly run interview process over the last two years has something to do with it, but when I was considering Mac last year I talked directly with at least one Mac student (now a second year) who pretty explicitly recommended I go elsewhere if I had the choice. I got the sense that it was due to how Mac was handling teaching and lack of faculty responsiveness to student feedback during the pandemic, but it’s hard to say for sure. Just food for thought for those who end up with a choice on the 11th, not to put a damper on things for those with their hearts set on Mac!

    Agree, for all the same reasons. Probably not worth your money for the USask app given you're probably dead in the water there with their silly high mcat cutoffs, but you stand some chance at UMan with an awesome Casper, so might as well give it a shot if you have the $.

    6 cycles is brutal, this is hard to read. I don't have any advice to offer except to do all you can to not take the process personally and not to see it as any kind of reflection of yourself or your abilities. Not to take away from the idea of self-improvement and reflection which are obviously important, but often times it's nothing to do with you. Luck plays the biggest role in the process, after a certain point in your stats and experiences; some people get lucky and get in right away, and some people take many tries. All I can say is that I'm sorry the process has been so cruel to you and that I wish you all the best of luck in whatever you decide to do. Hang in there.
