  1. I do the same thing LOL I feel like once I get within 72 hours of May 11 I'll get scared, switch and think "3 days??? 3 days is going to feel like at least 3 weeks, don't worry May 11 is SO far away" How accurate do you all think post-interview feelings are?
  2. I don't have a definitive answer, but one of my verifiers contacted me a few days ago to tell me that he had completed the verification form 1-2 weeks after the deadline they had given him to complete it. For those 1-2 weeks, admissions could have thought that my verifier missed/ignored the verification form, but I was not contacted. Also, I'm not sure if I saw it here or elsewhere, but what do you all think of the idea that they would only contact the verifiers of applicants who met this years cut-offs? Western states on their website that "Only academically competitive applications pro
  3. Why did they only reject a few people today and why those people first? :/
  4. I'm also wondering this. It feels so awkward to just leave it as is after submitting the individual parts.
  5. No, and please don't worry. I promise you this will not affect whether you receive interviews or not. I combed through my application, but I'm sure my eyes skipped over a few misspellings or grammatical errors. I'm sure many others are in the same boat (made a spelling mistake or grammatical error). It happens. Try not to worry.
  6. This is based on when interview offers/rejections went out last year: Dalhousie = around Oct 28th McMaster = Jan 8th U of C = Jan 29th Western = Jan 30th Queens = Feb 3rd U of A = Feb 5th That's all the ones I know. You can see that most are clustered around the end of January/early February.
  7. Oops, I put in total hours. I haven't submitted it yet. Is this wrong then? How would they know if its "per week" or "per month"? Are you suppose to put "4 hours/week" type of thing then?
  8. I feel silly asking, but is the application due date October 15? I always assumed it was Oct 1 for some reason and I'm worried my eyes are skipping over things
  9. Oct 1, 2020 It's written right above where you enter in your top 10 experiences: Top 10 Experiences See Applicant Manual - Section 4.11 For volunteer work, please include the date(s) and a brief description of your responsibilities. Volunteer verifiers must include the person's name, telephone number and email address. Please note that we may speak directly to your contact person at any time. Verifiers must have an email address at the organization/institution; personal emails (ie Hotmail, gmail, etc.) are not acceptable. Activities with end dates that are bey
  10. Hope not, there is very little room for error there.
  11. Yep Very challenging Also didn't feel like preparing really helped me. It was like the casper - the time limit and the test itself goes by so fast - you're pretty much going to say what you're going to say
