  1. I believe from another post that you may be just finishing high school and I want to note that this program does take some high school students but the vast majority of their accepted applicants have already completed at least part of a degree. Additionally, they regularly receive 400+ applicants for only 30 spots so it is quite a competitive program to get into (for anyone, not just high school students)! This doesn’t mean that you won’t get in of course and you would get some great clinical experience in the program! I am not sure what the grading is like (how tough it is to get a good GPA b
  2. I think that part of BSAP is actually the correction of the in group bias that generally would work in favour of white people, as most interviewers would be white due to, as has been stated, white people making up a greater proportion of the population, and specifically of physicians and med students who often interview applicants. Therefore, it may not really be an advantage for black applicants to be getting the same sort of process that other applicants get. Also, as has been said, this program specifically (of course there are other programs that are set up differently) does not have a cer
  3. hot take: I kinda like it! it could be worse for sure
  4. my offer was to Hamilton campus and was in June
  5. I just got an offer for the Hamilton campus!!! Timestamp: 14:45 Edit: I just want to say that I wish all of you the absolute best of luck! We were definitely dealt a tough hand this year, but there is still so much positivity on this forum and I believe so much in you all! (I was a little too in shock to write anything more than what I had written before at the time, sorry)
  6. mine was at 9:07:14 (I think I'm reading the right numbers but idk)
  7. I would assume that those people would work with McMaster to set up a more accessible solution the way lots of schools have been working with students! They may also have the time to work out a solution with their family that they maybe couldn't have worked out with the shorter notice that would have been given for interviews. Again, I don't agree with McMaster's decision fully, I just wanted to state that ensuring all applicants have internet access is a valid concern for McMaster to have had (although they likely could have found other solutions as I'm sure other schools had to do)
  8. Hi! I am not saying that I agree with McMaster's approach but I do want to say that this specifically is not true... My mum works in education in a rural-ish area of Ontario and has actually been working hard to get resources to students that have very unreliable or even NO internet at their houses. While for you and me it may seem like everyone has internet and while students may have internet at school, moving home with the pandemic may have significantly changed people's conditions! I also know people who struggled with having university exams online for this reason! Hope this offers a diff
  9. I'm quite confident it is last name based but we will find out soon when people start to come off the waitlist stay positive!!
  10. Order in which they send out emails for the waitlist (basically I don't think that timestamp is indicative of waitlist order)
  11. Also waitlisted. Timestamp is 8:18. I'm pretty sure last year it was alphabetical by last name which makes sense for me (end of alphabet)
  12. I think that people who are rejected are less likely to post it right away than people who are accepted or waitlisted...
