  1. Is the ACP registration fee a one-off charge? If not, how often does it need to be renewed? Thanks
  2. What's interesting about nursing is that (in BC as far as I know) there's been a lot of advocacy and barganing work done by the nurses' union. I wonder if a similar organization would be helpful for community and hospital pharmacists (separate organizations for each) to mitigate the current trends with wage reduction/poor job growth/harsh work in BC, Ontario, and other affected provinces. I realise that in order to be successful there would effectively need to be unanimity amongst pharmacists, that's an important discussion on its own. There's also some who hold the opinion that unions promote
  3. Thanks for asking. Initially I wasn't sure but I think winter subletting might be a better option (if there's a market for it).
  4. If it's any consolance for people on the waitlist, I will be declining my offer. Best of luck y'all.
  5. Just got my acceptance this afternoon! Stoked to meet y'all (virtually) in the fall OOP applicant, mountain lassie from BC. Finished undergrad before applying. Have worked in a handful of pharmacies for roughly five years. 2yr oGPA: 3.77 prereq GPA: 2.87. Shit the bed at the start of UG & did pretty trash in MICR, BIOL and PHGY. Took a handful of 300/400 level BCHM and PHAR courses to compensate. For those of you still waiting, I'm sorry if you feel anxious or stressed. I know it's easier said than done, but please don't lose hope. Best of luck to everyone here. Side no
  6. The letter has been put up (apply.usask.ca) and we have until 15th Jul to decide. I hope this helps
  7. Just got an email this morning from the programs admin about a downloadable letter, not sure how we're meant to access it (through our NSID/Outlook account, maybe?). Does anyone here happen to know? Thanks in advance
  8. I'm sorry to hear about that. Hopefully there will be some movement this year. The initial emails from the dean didn't include an acceptance timeline unfortunately. I have no idea if that info could be elsewhere on the PAWS site though. I'll try to update as soon as I can with the timeline info.
  9. UBC's timeline is running a little earlier than ours. Their application portal closed in Dec 2019 or something like that. I know the wait might be anxiety inducing for some, sadly. Trying to stay positive.
  10. Speculating from the older threads here: there might be four waves of invites to be sent out (one wave per week), starting from roughly the third week of June onwards. This might not be totally correct tho.
  11. Yup, still says "not received" on my end (for the official transcript), however I'm also an OOP applicant.
  12. Hey, hope you're all well. I realize that this is late, but I've been told recently by the admissions secretary (Randi) that there's been a backlog with entering the official transcripts onto the PAWS site (in case anyone might still be wondering about theirs).
  13. Sorry to hear ab the situation. Hasn't happened to me, but it sounds like you did the right thing by emailing them (and explaining your scenario). I wouldn't worry
  14. Thank you for sharing. If you don't mind, what format do you think is better for the written interview questions, point form or paragraph? I'd imagine point form would be easier for the committee to read, so I'd be more inclined towards that.
