No, CASPer is worth 33% of your pre-interview score, they use it as a metric for scoring not a filter. A filter would be something like if CASPer > 70th percentile, proceed to file review.

Casper is a psychological, situational judgement test used to determine applicant characteristics. It does act as a filter because those who possess traits that would be problematic in medicine are more likely to do worse and thus not proceed to interview. It is also predictive of success in medical school. I'm not going to argue with you, this isn't the thread for this debate as pointed out earlier.

Has anyone been contacted recently about coming off the waitlist? I know that they aren't doing interviews, but I was told that they will still be filling all 552 "interview" spots for consideration and now that MD/PhD decisions have been released, they could see some waitlist movement. Just wondering if anyone heard anything about that!

Invite/Reject: Waitlist ---> Interview!

CASPer: Felt a LOT better than last time. Was confident fro about 10/12 scenarios.  Did a LOT of prep, practice tests, one consultation. 

In Province, no grad school. Late applicant (RN, 3 years out of school). 

I am also a 3rd year nursing student from the York-Seneca collab program, were u also in a collab program? Also how did u mainly study for the CASPer? Thank you!
