Omfg did anyone else do terribly on CASPER according to the rejection feedback email?   I got quintile 5! It was my second CASPER date (after American schools date), and I walked out feeling

IP/OOP: IP Decision: Regrets MCAT: 508 aGPA: 3.84 Coefficients: Socioeconomic and rural 2nd rejection in 2 years but 2021/2022 cycle here I come! Winners never quit and quitte

IP/OOP: IP Decision: Invite MCAT: 511 aGPA: ~4.1 Coefficients: Only one SES

I honestly wouldn't worry, 128 cars is not bad at all, it's actually really good (you're only 1 below the median for mac, and I know a ton of people currently in medicine who couldn't score that high for the life of them). 3rd quintile casper is also not bad- you're right in the middle which should be more than enough with your gpa and cars. I'd be really surprised if you don't get an interview at mac and other ontario schools depending on ABS

Thank you for the encouragement :) I shall keep irrational anxiety at bay and just live life until judgment day.

Decision: Refused

MCAT: 500

aGPA: 4.27

Casper: 5th quintile :( ....any advice on how to import my Casper? 

To me, it seems MCAT is all what they care about....and also Congrats to those who made it to the interview!

IP/OOP: OOP

Decision: Regrets

MCAT: 519

aGPA: 4.08 (my US GPA is 4.0/4.0... pretty bummed about that conversion)

Coefficients: Extensive rural background, some lower SES factors

Fifth quintile in all categories for OOP. Oh well. Congrats on all who have received an invite, and good luck on your interview. You earned it!!!

The 4.0 to 4.5 GPA conversion sucks. I went to a US uni for my undergrad too and the conversion bites you in the butt every time.

Same here! 4.0 GPA from the US. I'm an in province applicant for U of Manitoba who is 100% rural so it's definitely been frustrating dealing with their GPA conversion. Best of luck to both of you!

I didn't want to be part of the endless list of people who were going to email them post invites/regrets but I was so convinced they made a mistake that I did. They emailed me back saying that was no mistake. Well then that's a terrible conversion system is all I have to say :P  No big deal though. It was a long shot as an OOP anyway and I bombed the CASPer too - lol.

Again, congrats to everyone! Don't bomb that interview now, hehehe. Just got an invite for NOSM so I'm feeling a little more hopeful today. That OMSAS conversion was a lot kinder to me.

IP/OOP: IP

Decision: Invite

MCAT: 512

AGPA: 4.1

Coefficients: none

Based on my CASPer Q-score from last application I was expecting it to go well and assume it was around the same. 

 

 

I was wondering whether you could tell us what quintile you got for casper last time?

Damn. Did you have any coefficients? I can't imagine the range of 3rd quintile CASPer scores is very wide either... so that might have been the deciding factor.

yes, had some coefficients. I cannot remember exactly which ones I checked off but for sure not rural.. All I can do at this point is try to achieve a 528 score and crack the casper. Will be grinding
