  1. Hi all! I've been overthinking who to pick as my 3rd reference and I've wasted so much time debating what to do and I realise I need to send it out asap! I'd appreciate any insight! A little bit about me...I was a student, TA, RA, lab manager and currently doing a research project all with the same professor, and that's one of my references. While I know she would give me a really solid reference, I feel limited in my references because I feel most people have these (or similar) experiences spread across multiple people but most of my experiences were with her. My 2nd reference is a
  2. Hi! Is it necessary to include a personal experience for every essay? I feel like the social media question is more about "what would you do" rather than "what have you previously done." What do you guys think?
  3. Hello! A massive chunk of my life has been dedicated to my sport, so I have like 20 entries relating to it (lol). I definitely don't have the typical premed profile so if there's anyone willing to help I'd massively appreciate it! I want to do my experiences justice and would appreciate any guidance for writing my entries. Please message me if you have experience listing sports on the ABS
  4. Hi Everyone Over the past couple of years I have religiously scrolled through Premed101 with so many doubts in my head; coming across posts that gave me confidence and others that tore it down. After years of hard work, I have finally made that cumbersome leap from a premed to a med student (Bumblebee Class of 2024). I'm still in disbelief that I made it and hope I never lose this feeling. I've found myself reflecting on my journey thus far (thank you Covid19 for all the time) and have come to realize that perseverance and hard work were the stars in my story when everyone and everythin
  5. Hi everyone, I am currently a hospital pharmacist and have completed a clinical pharmacy residency. This was a year long program that included about 8 different clinical rotations (ie. emerg, ICU, psychiatry etc) usually x 4 weeks each. My question is, what would be the best way to enter this? I could do it as a single entry (2500+ hours) or break it down into 8ish different entries (ie. emerg rotation x 250hr etc). Any advice or input would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
  6. Hello everyone, This is my first post on premed101, how exciting! I'm thinking about sending the U of T/Western/Queens/Dalhousie admissions committee a letter regarding the recent announcement that Winter 2020 grades will not be used in GPA calculations this year, and for all subsequent years. I understand that some students have been subject to unfair grading, and would prefer this term not count due to these unforeseen circumstances. However, it hardly seems fair to say point blank that no student's Winter 2020 semester will count as a result. I do have a personal gripe with this
  7. Hi! I'm looking for some advice on the confidential assessment form and choosing references for OMSAS. I'm a Quebec applicant and QC schools don't ask for reference forms/letters so I don't know too much about this. I saw on the OMSAS and Ontario med school websites that we're asked to provide one academic- or employment reference and one personal (non-academic) reference. I've been able to get a professor of mine and my research supervisor to be my academic references (they both know me pretty well). I've also asked my manager of 2 years (I work in retail) who I'm really close to to also
  8. Is it possible to use an official co-curricular record (issued by the university and stamped by the dean) as a verifier for extra-curricular activities listed? Is it possible to upload such a document to OMSAS? If not, is there really any point in getting one? Other grad school apps? Thanks!
  9. Well, basically my dumbass just realized that I was supposed to specify the year in university when filling out my ABS activities. Sadly, I only put "undergraduate" for the level of education entry and the total number of hours for each activity (like AMCAS). I understand it is my fault for not reading the help page over, but I am just trying to see how severe of a mistake this would be...
  10. Hi everyone, I will be applying to the French stream at uOttawa this year (Social Accountability Initiative). For the OMSAS application, do I need to complete it in french? Do you know where can I attach the financial documentation necessary for the Social Accountability Initiative? Also, I come from a single-parent household. Do I need to write an explanatory letter as to why I am only including my single-parent's financial documentation? Thanks for your help!
  11. Does anyone else's MCAT score show up on OMSAS in the document tracking? I sent mine from AAMC a while ago and they still aren't there. Thanks! edit: just read this "OMSAS will not upload MCAT scores until October 18, 2019. The deadline for the receipt of MCAT scores is November…"
  12. Hi, I have a referee filling out the CAF (OMSAS reference form) and I need help with this one question on "are of improvement". Does anyone have good suggestions or examples of what profs usually put for that category? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you
  13. So, I heard that an A (80-89%) at York University which converts to a 3.8 on OMSAS is a 4.0 when converted to Amcas. I was wondering if anyone has any information on this. Thanks
  14. Hi, So I'm applying to med school this fall and I'm a bit confused about the OMSAS application. For each activity, I have to enter the number of hours but is that hours/week? or hours/month? or total hours? uOttawa specifies that it can be either hours/week or hours/month? But what if I'm applying to different schools at a time? When I'm doing my app do I have to specify which it is? Thanks in advance
  15. Hello, I am a long time lurker, and this is my first post. I was wondering if my fellow Ontario comrades that got interviews/invites could please give me some tips! Also, I have the following stats, I would really appreciate some feedback and perhaps recommendations on certain schools that fit my experiences/scores: 516 on the MCAT (129/128/130/129) 3.8 GPA (Perfect GPA last 2 years) ECs: Lots of volunteering at a hospital in patient care (300+ hours) 2 publications with a neurosurgeon as a 3rd author Spent the majority of my undergrad playing varsity te
  16.

Best of luck, Med Student Gunner
  17. Hi, I noticed that some of my transcripts indicate "yes" to them having been verified. Do any of you know if we will get to see the cGPA or grades they enter manually so that we can verify whether the data was inputted without any errors? Thank you
  18. Hey, so I recently just got my MCAT scores back and CARS was below the UofT cutoff unfortunately. Since the OMSAS application is a whole that is sent to all Ontario schools you apply for, and UofT is likely going to flag my application and reject it for not meeting cutoffs...would my application to Ottawa also be affected? Like wouldn't they see the flag that UofT put on it?
  19. Hey guys, I'm thinking of applying to UOttawa med this year- I just wanted to know; what is the cut-off for the wGPA for anglophone applicants? On their site it says you can email and ask, but the lady won't be back till october 1st (how convenient). Did anyone manage to email this year? I don't wanna assume it's the same as previous years. Thanks!
  20. Hello Everyone, I know this is very late but I was finishing up my application for this cycle and I have noticed that there is no section that is asking for me to enter my grades from my transcript. I remmebr last year I had to manually enter all the courses I took and the grades I received. Am I doing something wrong this year? I can not find that section! there is only a transcript section which you can fill out a transcript request form! Please Help Thanks a lot in advance.
  21. Hi everyone, Can anyone recommend some great podcasts that are good for CASPer? Any relevant ethics podcasts? Thanks so much in advance.
  22. Hi guys, I was wondering whether or not to include the TRAINING I received to become a volunteer as a separate entry in ABS or not. The reason I am asking, is because I have two volunteer positions, one in hospice and one as a research assistant, and both required I complete very lengthy online training and online certifications. For example, for hospice, it was a 13 hour online training that required tests, small essays on a range of topics ranging from palliative care, infectious diseases, caregiver stress, ethics and so on. Likewise for the research assistant position, because it is co
