How do you calculate OPTOMCAS GPA? I only know my official school GPA and sGPA
If you go on optomcas and go to "submitted application" you will be able to download your program application. you will see a PDF version of your application and there it will have a breakdown of all your GPAs.

Good to know. I wish all of us an acceptance.

Congrats! When did you interview with them and send them the thing they put you on hold for? I have yet to hear back and the waiting is becoming frustrating :( good luck on your other interviews!

GPA was a 3.23 sGPA was a 3.14. Scored an AA 290 and TS 280. I had my interview at the end of November. I send my Fall transcript to Optomcas on the 1st week of January and retaken my OAT last week. Scored an AA and TS of 310. Email Salus my new scores and waited from there. Pretty mediocre stats but my extracurricular activities are pretty extensive. Surprise you haven't heard from them back already.

Damn. I haven’t received anything yet I’m due for a denial or something like this soon I think.

What were yours stats/interview dates? Don’t quit though. Maybe you can write a letter of intent.

I submitted my app Nov 15th, but am not scheduled to take my OAT until Feb 8th. I knew I was super behind with the process and had a slim chance of getting in, but figured that even if it's not ideal, there's always next year. I decided to reach out to admissions and basically, I asked if I should continue with the application process. They did say there are still open seats available as of now and once the seats are filled, for those put on a waiting list, it can sometimes take up until the week before classes start to be offered a seat in the program. People give up their spots at various times throughout the year. Don't give up!!! I hope that helps ease some minds, I know it made me feel a little better. Good luck everyone! :)
