  1. I didn't get any interviews this cycle but I always love browsing this thread and seeing so many people excited...here's to hoping I can join in on the fun next year!
  2. I'm in the same boat, this was my last R as well. Keep your head high
  3. Definitely working on my typing speed to help me out on casper for Mac (in hindsight it may have gotten me screened out at the UofA & Queen's as well)....any suggestions on how many people I should get to take a look? I know everyone may have their own slight biases so I don't wanna have too many people changing things back and forth but a few eyes are definitely needed to pick out poor aspects of my descriptions
  4. That's fair! ECs & casper definitely were the problem....my typing speed for casper was only around 50 wpm when I wrote it but I've been working on my speed and got it up to 70 wpm so far so hopefully that makes a difference (I very rarely was able to answer the third question on my test bc too slow) Any idea if there's sort of an optimal way to phrase descriptions (particularly OMSAS with the short character limit)? I recently got a med student to read over my descriptions that I submitted and they said the activities are fine but the descriptions were pretty bad i.e. they sounded li
  5. I think my GPA is ok (especially combined with my MCAT score) so I’m leaning towards a 1 year MPH next year to have a serviceable backup plan as well + a practicum experience I do think my ECs are good but unfortunately I only spent maybe a few days actually writing the applications this year without having a second pair of eyes reading over my descriptions/essays so maybe that was an issue as well, I also didn’t have any research whatsoever when i applied in October but I have been doing research this year and I will most likely even have a pub by the time the next cycle opens
  6. Mac, UWO, Queen’s, Dal, UBC, UofA, UofC, & UofT (haven’t heard from UofT yet but it’s probably an R if every other school said the same)
  7. So I didn't receive a single invite this year, here are my stats: 3.76 cGPA (IP Ontario), MCAT 518 (131 CARS), and a wGPA of anywhere from 3.85 - 3.92 I thought my grades and ECs were solid so I'm feeling super dejected about not even getting a single invite to look forward to while I'm watching many of my friends doing interview prep My current plan for next year is pursuing a one year Master's (MPH) while I reapply - do you think this is a better idea than going back and doing a 5th year of undergrad? I'm in my gap year this year This is of course wh
  8. These are getting exhausting (and kind of embarrassing) to do but if it helps a future applicant then I'm all for it Time Stamp: 4:35 EST Invite/reject: Regrets IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N (Applied through ACCESS) 2YGPA: 3.88 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 128/131/129/130 Essays (X/8): 8/8 + About You
  9. Timestamp: 2:51pm Program: MD Result: Rejection OMSAS GPA: 3.76 CARS: 131 IP/OOP: IP Think I need to take some time off these forums for my mental well-being, good luck with interviews to everyone who got one
  10. Hmmm in that case looks like I'll see you folks again tomorrow morning
  11. Thank you for the kind words, all the best to you as well!
  12. Ughhhhh hope they come out tomorrow the wait is killing me
  13. They came out on a Thursday in 2019! But otherwise ya I think it's been Wednesday for the most part so who knows...I just hope it's sooner rather than later
  14. Anyone think they may possibly be out this coming week? They went out on the 8th last year but interviews weren’t until March 27th onwards This year interviews are much earlier (March 6/7/13) so looks like they’re moving ahead of schedule on things
  15. They send that email every year (including last year) and it always says late Jan but the past 3 years they've been out sometime from Jan 8-10 so it's very much possible they'll be out sooner than you think!
