  2. Oh my goodness YES, that makes total sense and honestly that is such a relief to hear! I initially thought that they would only remove one semester of courses with the 15 credits, but hearing that they're removing the worst courses in that year regardless of semester is such a secret blessing in disguise. Thanks again for the quick answer, you've helped reduce some of my anxiety which I can't thank you enough for!
  3. What if in your worst year, you took full year courses that you'd like to drop? I.e. I'd like to drop 2 full year courses in my 3rd year. With the leftover 15 credits, will they remove my worst courses in my worst year? Or will they only remove the worst semesters in my worst year?
  4. Hey! If you don't mind me asking, how many points was your TFR off from the cut-off when you first applied? I'm in a very similar position as you were right now and just got an interview rejection and was devastated. But seeing this, your post is giving me some hope for next year.
  5. Oh woah I didn't realize that. I guess in that sense, it's very difficult then even as an Ontario student. WELL then, now which province should we move to and become a resident in? Manitoba?
  6. Even if it's more competitive per school, there's an overall greater number of seats available for Ontario students. I had to cross off so many Ontario schools on my list this year because the OOP requirements were too high for me. Plus, now that I couldn't get an interview at UBC this year, I'm pretty much DOOMED for med, because there's no way that OOP schools will take me if UBC won't :'(
  7. Nah you guys are SO lucky, you have so many schools in Ontario. Us BC students only have UBC and it's insanely competitive. I wouldn't stand a chance at any other school in Canada.
  8. Umm I think it just says that your score overlaps with the OOP cut off. From UBC's email, apparently, it could be a bit lower too - they're just grouping it all as "close" to cut-off. Honestly, that's the most awful thing to see and I can understand how disappointing that is. Hopefully you applied to some schools in your own province though, because with stats like that, you will definitely get in! Best of luck
