    dooogs got a reaction from hijkl in .   
    If by party you mean drinking in someone's house while listening to top 30 music. Yes it happens a lot. If you mean parties like great clubs with good music - will not happen in London (as opposed to Toronto where you have international DJs for example). It all depends what your experience of a "party" is.

    In times where the only constant is the daily barrage of COVID-19 news and our only sources of entertainment are a man who collects tigers and Jessica from Love is Blind, I would keep checking. Gotta have that consistency, you know?

    I've heard UWO posts application status on student center before it is actually announced via e-mail. So. Should I keep checking ? LOL

    I was just thinking about this. Every single person I've met has had a horrible time at U of T in terms of academics, school support, collegiality. Idk why I thought maybe the med school would be better?

    I'm just so angry about this. Not only do we have to deal with all the uncertainty of this COVID situation but U of T is also waiting until the very last possible minute to let us know. How can our applications still be "in consideration"? Just another disappointment :/ sorry for the rant, i'm just so tired of all of this
    EDIT: didn't someone call/e-mail and say they will let us know by Wednesday?

    Stream: English
    cGPA/wGPA: 3.79/3.89
    MCAT: 511 (129/125/129/128)
    Current year: Graduated 2019, been working since
    ECs: 3 research lab RA positions, extensive volunteering in community and healthcare, extensive work history (10+ years because low income family) in various fields, extensive athletics, moderate campus and club activity at my school, secondary/tertiary language proficiency, upward trend since high school
    Essays: I felt they were strong, so did everyone who read them. My GPA got tanked because of one bad mark in 4th year (which I explained in my ABS). 
    Geography: IP
     
    Thought I had a strong application outside GPA. Didn't get my R last year till something like 3 days before the final interview. This was my dream school, as it is for many others, here's hoping I get in next cycle because my MCAT is only good for one more go. Disappointed the committee can take so long to make a decision, but can't provide me the notes they made on my application or areas for me to improve.

    LMFAO so funny you say that. I swear my mom thinks I’m lying and I got rejected and I’m just not telling her. I’ve been trying to blatantly go on my email in front of her on my laptop so she doesn’t think I’m being sketchy. UGH LOL

    It's ridiculous. I learn IN CLASS how bad stress is for you, and then they load us with 4 exams in a week. Who knows? Maybe it's a blessing from God we may be rejected from there.
