  1. Hey, do you mind sharing where you got that information from? Was it from the WebEx? I wasn't able to attend so I'm not really in the loop about CASPer scoring
  2. Yeah I was a little unsure of whether I should request to release it a couple days beforehand, so it could be released during the Oct 30-Nov 6 timeframe, but I think I'll send it in during that week anyway. Thanks!
  3. Hi all, I'm just wondering how long it takes for AAMC to electronically send your MCAT scores to the university of your choice? I know that for USask you're supposed to release your MCAT scores between October 30 and November 6, so I'm not sure if I should send my scores in during the Oct 30-Nov 6 time frame or a couple of days before it. Does anyone know?
  4. Do you think that it would be similar this year, seeing as the MMI will be online this year as well?
  5. The admission stats have been updated and now include 2020 stats!
  6. When you sign up, there are certain dates that you can choose to complete the CASPer, and it varies for each school. For USask, the latest date is October 22 (unless the spots for this date has already been filled) and the distribution date (the date that CASPer scores will be sent to med schools) is November 20 or 22, I believe. If I'm wrong then someone please correct me. I hope this helps!
  7. Hey guys, I had a question about the USask med application; it requires you to list the high schools you have attended, but the questions that follow only actually pertain to Canadian High Schools. I completed my grade 9 and 10 in another country but I did grade 11 and 12 here in SK, and graduated from high school here. My question is would I even bother putting my previous school down, or would I leave it and just put the high school that I graduated from? Thanks in advance!
  8. Do you know if USask requires it, or if it's mandatory for all CASPer takers?
  9. Hi, I'm not sure if this might help, but according to the OSMAS GPA converter, a 3.3 GPA would be in the 77-79 range. Whilst this is for Ontario, their conversions seem to line up with UofA (3.3=B+ on the OSMAS scale as well), so maybe you could take a look at that? It might not give you a precise score but perhaps it could be a guide. Of course, if anyone else finds an actual link for converting grades between UofS and UofA, that would be more accurate (:
  10. Hi all, I'm not sure if there is already a thread about this (I just created my account pretty recently), but what does everyone think about the CASPer snapshot? Additionally, I have heard some applicants say that they received an email from specific universities about having to take it (such as Dalhousie), but when I went on the CASPer website, it said that all takers have to complete it. Does anyone know any more about this, and more specifically, does that mean USask requires the snapshot in addition to the actual test? Thanks in advance!
