  1. Haha I emailed them as well and got the exact same response
  2. Is anyone else still waiting for their GPA confirmation email? I never got it but instead, I noticed a new item popped up today asking for my transcript with "1st Term Results". Getting a little worried and wondering if anyone is in the same boat TIA!! Edit: I know my verifiers were contacted though. Would that mean my file is/was going through review?
  3. Sorry for the late reply, I've been away from this forum for a bit. Thank you so much for the book recommendation, it seems very intriguing and it being from a Canadian perspective I think will help me better understand the challenges that POCs face. And yeah, I agree re. your point of implicit biases. I would've never thought that I was racist, or supported an unjust system that discriminates against non-white people, but I'm starting to realize that some of my thoughts and actions (or lack thereof) are telling of the opposite. I'm really thankful for this thread, for kind people like you who
  4. ahh finally something... but how long it's taking is scaring me i hope they're not making any drastic changes like the Ontario schools
  5. It's confirmed from their website (see @scoobydoo1623's link): "If you have completed 3 years of undergraduate study at a full course load, we will remove 2 FCEs (4 semester-length courses, or 2 full year courses) across your degree".
  6. Ohmygosh congrats!!! Been lurking these forums for a while, and I just wanted to say the dedication and persistence you've shown throughout this whole process has been so inspiring. It must have been hard going through the cycles of self-doubt year after year but you've MADE IT!!!! I'm so happy for you, and you DESERVE this so freaking much!!!!! Congratulations (future) doc !!!!
  7. how do you guys think this will affect the average wGPA? I think it'd be lower obviously, but how much
  8. Omg this is shocking (and so bad for me, lol). I literally just emailed adcom a few days ago to clarify the wGPA formula. Who knew there would be such a huge change... Also, I'm really confused as to how this is supposed to help applicants??? Dropping only 2 FCEs instead of 1 every year seems like they're giving way less room for error
  9. Thank you for sharing your view. I understand now that underrepresentation is a key issue for several Canadian populations, but prominently for Black Canadians. I agree it's important for representation to be similar in healthcare and the general/patient population, and that the BSAP is a much needed first step for this to start taking place. I see that an argument such as "but there are so many underrepresented Canadian groups, why Black Canadians" is stupid because if change can't even take place for the most significantly underrepresented population, of course it can't happen for the other
  10. Please forgive me if I sound ignorant about this but I feel that this is a fair point. I 100% agree that the systematic racism against POC in the United States is a huge culturally ingrained issue that must be addressed there. The African-Americans/Black Americans in the States have been subject to hundreds of years of racism manifested in all sorts of traumatic ways like slavery and segregation, and continues to today (as we have seen from the recent police brutality cases). Hence, it's completely understandable why equity measures must be in place today to ensure such African-American famili
  11. Nothing today either Oh well, at this point I've kind of accepted that it's better luck next year for me. Onto the next cycle I go...
  12. I mean, there's no point thinking about the "what ifs". We all make mistakes in our lives and it's important to be able to learn from them, move on & look ahead. The important thing is that YOU MADE IT, & you deserve it!!!! No age is too old to start med school if it's really what you want. Congrats & be a bit less hard on yourself
