  1. Hey everyone I have all the Princeton Review study material textbooks from last year so they are still up to date and in great shape. I would love to pass it on to someone who is studying for the MCAT in Calgary, preferably someone who could really use it and it would be hard for them to purchase on their own. Also not sure if this is the best place to post this so if anyone has any ideas of another place to post this please share with me! Send me a private message if this is relevant for you!!
  2. Just a heads up that the blog was updated - apparently there were two final offers sent out in the last few days, good luck everyone, super curious how far they moved into the waitlist this year.
  3. If money isn't a huge consideration for you I would choose Vancouver in a heart beat, yes there are benefits to the shortened Calgary program but Vancouver is a wayyy cooler and livelier city, plus you're right by the ocean...I did my undergrad in a city on the ocean and getting to see that every day grounded me and was a huge energy boost. This choice is obviously so personal so you're going to need to see what aspects you value most about the city and curriculum. Full Disclosure I'm on the WL for Calgary, but I promise this in my genuine opinion lol.
  4. lol what kind of buthurt ass**** would do that.... is trolling on these forums something common?
  5. Not to give everyone anxiety but I just saw on the other online forum site that someone was accepted off the waitlist...not sure if it's a troll, lol that would be pretty evil if so...but good luck everyone, wishing the best for us all.
  6. People keep saying that they appreciate the transparency of UofC's process which until now I also did but at least most of the other schools know when to expect the results...the only thing worse then the anxiety inducing wait is having no idea when the news is going to hit us. Transparency would be really appreciated in this moment (lol praying someone from admin checks out this forum and can understand where we are coming from)
  7. So confused why my verifiers were contacted on Wednesday and were given until May 12th to respond and others were contacted today and have less time to respond...anyone have a good conspiracy theory for this one?
  8. 2 of my verifiers were contacted yesterday (to my knowledge, but there may have been more that didn't update me), I'm not sure about both of them but one of them has until May 12th to respond. I'm assuming that the date for verifiers to respond is irrelevant to the release date of final decisions but who knows...
  9. If this is the case do you know why my grad supervisor was contacted for verification? If me being in my last year of a course-based masters wasn't relevant to my application, why would they reach out to my grad supervisor?
  10. All 3 Israeli programs are great and have high match rates (mostly in the US, and some in Canada). I'm in a similar position as you, applied to a few Canadian schools this cycle and also to one of the Israeli programs, but thats also because I'm really interested in the particular curriculum of Ben Gurion. Out of the 3 I would say Sackler is definitely the highest regarded, and hardest to get into out of the 3. All three are in different parts of Israel which may also effect your decision. I did my undergrad at Tel Aviv U, which is where Sackler is and I know people who have attended each of t
  11. Yeh, they said in one of the webinars that they'll move dates around to accommodate extenuating circumstances (including other interviews and religious reasons), unless you get an interview on their last interview day of the cycle. Congrats!!
  12. Hey I just happened to stumble upon this a few months later but I thought I would chime in. I'm 27 and currently applying, also have ADHD and it has been a huge hurdle for me to overcome - especially with the memorization needed and general rigour of many premed courses. If I was in your position I would maybe consider going to a 5-7 year medical school program in Europe or Australia that you can do without an undergrad since you're 100% sure you want to be an MD. Also I don't necessarily agree with zxcccxz is saying about being weary of the of 2-3 out of 155 making it without comp
  13. Oh thats great to hear...which admissions video? Lol probably should have known about a video before I applied
  14. Same. I hope that's the reason because at some point on the blog Dr. Panaccione said they note people that wait till the last minute to submit (which would be completely unfair if they actually do that).
