Feelings about Casper: I totally bombed it. It's my worst CASPer to date (I took 3 this year - US, Anglo Canada and French Canada.)

You have a good profile tho... But i get it; the CASPer can ruin everything. I hope you're okay! If you don't mind me asking, what was your undergrad?

Just finishing up in Biomedical Sciences.

Yeah I'm fine. I got an interview invite at NOSM yesterday - guess what... they don't ask for CASPer. I still have hope for Calgary and maybe the French schools, and Ottawa got my french CASPer as well. I also have some US interviews both MD and DO. Thanks for checking =) 

I'm truly just happy for the people who've gotten their invite!

Honestly, I'm very happy that I was waitlisted as opposed to refused given my CA$Per and EC's.

TIME STAMP: I checked at 9AM and the status hadn't changed, just checked now at 11:30AM
Result: Refused
GPA: 3.89 at the time of application but without winter semester 3.85 and now it's 3.9
MCAT: never done it, maybe I'll do it this summer and apply out of province but I'm not sure what are the odds of me getting anything in universities that are not in Quebec given my GPA ...
ECs (CV): Definitely not outstanding. Typical volunteering in hospital, shadowing, sports, travel, summer jobs but none relevant to medicine, some research but no publications as of yet.
Year: U3 finishing my second bachelor's degree. I applied on the basis of my second degree, I am graduating in May. 

Feelings about Casper: I honestly thought it went well but maybe not lol but whatever I guess, until next year or hopefully the french unis will give me an interview 
also last time McGill gave rankings for casper I ranked 273 out of 819 (2019 admissions) so I was confident about casper but who knows some years may be better than others

Applicant category: IP


Congrats to everyone who got an interview and good luck :)

TIME STAMP: checked at 10h30

Result: Regrets
GPA: 3.87
ECs (CV): pretty well balanced CV ( research, volunteering, awards). 
Year: Master's

Feelings about Casper: went just like every year

Applicant category: IP

This is my fourth time applying. I got an invite every year and my rankings pre interview are usually in the top 50. Last year, I was 20th on the Outaouais waitlist but it stopped at the 19th candidat. I don't know what to make of this. I just think I'm cursed at this point. Please don't let my story discourage you. There is still hope as long as you keep trying, but I think that's it for me. I'm drained...

TIME STAMP: Checked at 1:00pm but checked at 11:30 and nothing then
Result: Invite!!
GPA:3.95
ECs (CV):very basic. I didn’t have volunteering or anything special. The only thing I thought was good was my work history which I’ve had since high school. Not impressive jobs, i worked customer service and retail. I had one NSERC USRA and I got a second author pub from it but other than that my cv was pretty much just work. Hope that helps comfort people that only worked during uni cause it made me panic that I didn’t have all those great ECs other people had. 
Year: Completed undergrad, first year of professional program

Feelings about Casper:  I thought it went well. I’m a slow typer ( literally type with my index fingers) but I thought it was way better than I did last year. I knew it was what held me back last year so 2 weeks before my test I spent all day practice typing and doing practice tests. Mostly just eventually I got tired and did like 3-4 example scenarios a day but it helped me with pacing. I got up to like 35 wpm so have some faith slow typers haha. Best tip is to read over your answers or atleast someone else’s to a scenario because you learn to quickly recognise what’s a good response and a bad one.

Applicant category: QC university. 

One last comment, I was fully prepared to give up if I didn’t get an interview this cycle cause nearly everyone I know in med school now has a doctor parent or could have years of research, pubs and volunteering so I’m really glad I got it. Just want to say you clearly don’t need the sterotypical premed ECs
