somebowdy Posted August 20, 2017 Report Share Posted August 20, 2017 Hi all, I was just wondering how Toronto weighs the LOR's compared to the brief personal essays, ABS, and GPA. I am asking because I was hoping to apply to UofT as a 3rd year applicant this year, and while I do have significant, meaningful EC's and experiences, most of them have been school-related in positions where there were no supervisors. Therefore I am left with only 1 referee who I think would write a great LOR and have to find 2 others. As I posted in the general OMSAS forum, I'm thinking of asking my PI but she hasn't really supervised me enough to speak to my abilities and what I can bring as an applicant. My 3rd reference would likely be a meaningful one from a volunteer supervisor but I only have ~30 hours in that position. All in all, for anyone who has had success with UofT, would it be worth it to start working on the essays and ABS given the situation that I am currently in? Can these two + great GPA make up for decent LOR's (assuming I meet the MCAT cutoffs)? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
