  1. I've talked to a few people about the living situation and the verdict seems to be we should move for first year as our clinical skills are probably going to be in person. And also just for a better social experience! But then I'm also coming from OOP so I don't have the option of commuting lol. See you in September!!
  2. Hi everyone! I never understood before why people would post and tell people they are rejecting their offer (seems a little self-important) but I was on a waitlist last year and always appreciated these posts for the momentary hope they brought. The waitlist is really tough but I'm rooting for you all All this to say I will be declining my OOP VFMP offer to go to UofT! Good luck to everyone, you all deserve it so much!!
  3. So sorry, my creation time (control-fing 'creation-date') was actually 9:09:44. I was looking at the 'created time' at the top before.
  4. Time Stamp: 9:09:25 Result: Good waitlist cGPA: 3.97 (that's my OMSAS GPA) Stream: English Will be declining for UofT! But I know how stressful the waitlist is so I wanted to include my info.
  5. Being on mountain time has sucked most of this cycle (interviewing at 6am hurts) but at least it makes the wait quicker today LOL.
  6. Result: Acceptance! Timestamp: no email, saw it on the launchpad when I checked Geography: IP GPA: 4.0 MCAT: 519 Degree: 4th year BSc ECs: PM for details, I would say 50/50 ratio of typical premed to unique, no publications tho. Happy to chat! For the longer essays, 1 was about a personal life experience, 1 was about an EC where I felt I showed alot of growth. Interview: I thought it was one of my better interviews. I really liked the questions as I felt they were interesting topics I could speak a lot about and I felt the panel went super well. I had 1-2 wh
  7. I just checked all my emails after seeing this thread because I actually remembered seeing not to use notes for UofT. Sure enough, at least for March 21st, they explicitly said in our reminder email we can jot down notes during the thinking time to 'brainstorm', but cannot refer to them during the interview response. It's in the "Interview Reminder" email under "A few reminders". Not sure if this is true for the other dates though. That said, I'm sure either way its not a big deal if you used them and just glanced a few times. Unless you were pausing mid- response to read them or somethi
  8. this is so nice thank you! Honestly, the more time passes, the more cringe moments from my interviews I remember (anyone else??). Hoping the best for you too!!
  9. Thanks for making this thread, I love the idea! Congrats to everyone for finishing interviews! While I'm sure the agony and anxiety of the wait is going to hit me late-April, right now I feel lighter than I have all semester. Upon reflecting, I realized this is the first time since September (I just finished interviewing this past weekend) we don't have to worry about DOING something for our apps (no looming CASPer date or prepping for interviews). I didn't realize how much peripheral stress on top of the normal school/life stress I was experiencing from it all until it was done! Anyone e
  10. There's no deadline for when we can complete the check-in right? I wasn't going to do it til Friday, just wanted to double check that's ok?
  11. How did your interviewers seem over zoom? Some of my friends said they got alot of positive feedback (you're doing a great job, you can do this, etc), but none of mine seemed particularly friendly or said stuff like that? I tried to finish my stations with ~5-10 seconds left for pleasantries too. I felt pretty good about my answers overall coming out, and felt like I came off confident (no jittery speech or awkward pauses, etc) but now I'm starting to wonder...
  12. the Application ID is different from the student ID, you can find it in the payment reciept email! I couldn't submit the form when I put the student ID under application ID so just for anyone else who is confused LOL EDIT: apparently this was the wrong advice, and it's actually the ID on the right hand side of your application portal!
  13. Can anyone not submit the interview form? Everytime I try it says "I must read and approve the confidentiality form" even though I already clicked yes to everything...
  14. Did you have any wifi/connectivity issues? I don't have the most stable wifi (though it's usually fine for zoom) and I'm so paranoid that their complicated-sounding system is going to overload or cause my wifi to fail lol. Sounds like it requires alot of wifi bandwidth. Maybe I'm just paranoid because that happened to me during CASPer though...
  15. Invite/reject: Reject IP/OOP: OOP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.97 on OMSAS, not sure for Western? YEAR: 4th year undergrad MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 131/127/131/130+ can't remember the exact P/S score lol Essays (X/8): 8/8 and wrote About You. Doubted if the CARS cutoff would stay at 127 so I only spent about a week, but thought I chose good activities and lessons and had a Western med student edit. Followed a formulaic writing style I wonder what I did wrong for Western. As the first school with 'proper essays' I've heard from, this news makes me nervous tha
