  1. Oh a book club sounds nice! I am also drowning in work, but I don't seem motivated to do a lot of it haha...trying to revise a paper right now actually. Sounds about right with the dreams induced by anxiety! I've been getting back into a home workout routine as well to try and keep sane lol
  2. I am late to responding to this, but the wait is feeling long already! I feel generally good about the interview and am just anxiously awaiting the results... What are you guys doing to keep busy?!
  3. I think the timestamp corresponds to interview time! Me and you were very close and we have the same interview time And there are people after us in the next slot! Although it seems they also sent out Rejections right in the middle, which is odd
  4. Timestamp: 8:44 Interview: Yes! GPA: OMSAS 3.53 + 0.2 Master's boost = 3.73 Context: Lived in a larger Northern city for my entire life, including University for both Undergrad and Master's ECs: very varied, lots of employment, long term volunteering (5+years), SSHRC, sports, clubs/committees Non-trad?: Yes - Master's degree and am also a teacher (science undergrad though) # of previous applications: 2 Interview Location/Date/Time: Sunday March 7th at 10am
  5. Ah! I'm feeling nervous now lol...where did you hear?!
  6. I also have not heard nor have two others I know!
  7. Thank you! The more I thought about it, the more it made sense that it would be okay
  8. Is it odd that I would have someone listed as a referee but not a verifier for anything? This person is more of my "personal" reference vs academic or employment, and we have volunteered together in various places and also completed some schooling together. I don't have them listed as a verifier as I have used volunteer coordinators and supervisors in his place. Does this make sense or does it look odd? I could also be overthinking this haha!
  9. Thank you very much for your reply! That was very much my own line of thinking as well. I saw on the Queen's website that they have a graduate applicant pool where they determine if the GPA is satisfactory or not, so I wasn't super sure about that, or what they might consider "satisfactory" for a grad student. But I agree, it's a ton of work for an extra slim shot at basically one more school. I appreciate the feedback And thanks for the wishes for good luck!
  10. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on writing the MCAT. I have been toying around with writing the MCAT since the last cycle's results came out on May 12th. I am from Ontario and was on the waitlist for the only school I applied to last cycle (NOSM). A little background/stats: I am a non-traditional applicant. Degrees: HBSc (Chemistry), Bachelor of Education (concurrent), Master of Education (completed Nov 2019). GPA: cGPA 3.56, 2Y GPA for Queen's 3.67 ABS: Likely the strongest suit in my application. Lots of long term EC's. SSHRC in Master's, tw
  11. Well the email we all didn't want has arrived! It says movement this year was only 8 seats, which is a bit confusing since the first update stated that there were 42 people remaining on the waitlist (and we started with 52). Maybe they aren't counting those who removed themselves from the waitlist? Not sure. Either way, obviously it's not a great feeling, but at least we have some closure.
  12. Hey guys, I learned some information this week about why we haven't heard anything. I am a previous Lakehead student and know some current NOSM students and have worked on campus as well. One of my previous co-workers let me know that unfortunately one of the NOSM Admissions Officers passed away unexpectedly last weekend. I imagine this is why they are closed and we have not received an update. I know NOSM Thunder Bay is pretty small, and I'm sure the loss of this staff member has shaken the NOSM community greatly
  13. Yeah that's super weird! I would try emailing the "interviews" email. There have been no updates since that initial email saying there is just two spots left. If anything else comes, I'm sure one of us will post here
  14. No! I didn't get anything. Hmm...maybe tomorrow?
  15. Not feeling super hopeful at this point knowing how close it was to being filled once we got the last update! I guess we will see if we get something new today! How are you feeling?
