TIME STAMP: 10:40
Result: Reject (was interviewed in 2017, then refused pre-interview every year since)
ECs: Lots pf reseach and publications, other projects to improve knowledge tranfer and help parents of children in the NICU, student associations, ethics committee, etc, CV was scored in top 10 last year so not much I can do except find out how to score crazy high on the casper because the theory that if you have a nice CV, i.e. relevant experiences, it will correlate with high casper doesn’t seem true for me: last year cv was ranked in top 10 and casper was 300/800
Year: 4th tear PhD

I'm very sceptical about this CASPER exam, I hate to rant about this but I'm seeing people on this forum and close friends that I know (who are great people) getting rejected with crazy high stats to schools that require this bloody exam. It's really not a fair assessment of "personality" especially given the bias against people that type fast and the lack of clarity on how it's marked. Also, I don't think I'm a bad person. I've worked extensively with special needs students and collaborated with families as a hospice volunteer for over 5 years and my feedback has always been positive. Maybe schools should stop asking people "What would you do? and focus more on "what have you done?". I just got an R as well, so perhaps I'm just salty haha...

yeah. we all know they don't care about the "individual". It's basically a computer generated list. Nobody reads your application. It's just a computer selection :-??
We all just desperate to get in somewhere, even if this school probably isn't too great for capturing the essence of medicine
