Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)

67 posts in this topic

As with the thread in the General Premed Forum, here's a quick questionnaire regarding the International med school admissions process.

 

If you can copy and paste the below form, and fill it out for with your experiences applying to international med schools, that'd be awesome. If you want to contribute your GPA and MCAT stats in addition, that's great too. :)

 

------

 

I'm a (Province or State) resident in (undergraduate or graduate) studies, and have (Canadian or US or XYZ) citizenship. My GPA was (XYZ) and my MCAT scores were:

 

Physical Sciences: (x)

Verbal: (y)

Biological Sciences: (z)

Written Sample: (z)

 

I was (accepted/rejected/waitlisted) by XYZ med school. This is my (first/second/third/more than third) time applying to this school.

 

Accepted at: RCSI

Rejected at: UCD

Waitlisted at: Ross, SGU

 

Of all the schools I applied to, I'd like to attend (XYZ Med School) as my first choice.

I'm a Alberta resident who graduated in 2001 with a Bsc. in Biochemistry. I have Canadian citizenship.

 

I was interviewed and rejected by the University of Calgary, rejected (I assume since they haven't said a single word) by the University of Alberta and accepted by St. George's University medical school. This is my first time applying to these schools.

Waitlisted = McGill

Rejected = SUNY - Syracuse

 

MCAT = 8,10,R,11. Rewriting this year in case I decline St. George's and McGill doesn't work out.

I'm an Ontario resident in undergraduate studies, and have Canadian citizenship.

 

I was accepted by Trinity med school. This is my first time applying to this school. But I rejected it becauase I was admitted into the SIX year program because my degree is in psychology and not biology/biochem/physiology etc....

I'm and Alberta resident, graduating this semester with a BSc. in Biology. This is my first time applying to any med school. I've tried in-province here in Calgary, and Edmonton, as well as a couple of schools in Ontario. No luck with Western, otherwise I haven't heard back within Canada.

 

I've been accepted at RCSI, I interviewed with them in San Fran a couple of weeks ago. I've also applied to UCD and UCC, but no word yet.

 

My GPA at UofC is around 3.4, up to around 3.7 in my best years. I scored a 31Q on the MCAT, which I wrote in 2002.

 

RCSI is my 1st choice, but I'd seriously think about UofC or UofT if one of those worked out.

Hi!

 

I'm a Canadian citizen from Ontario who did two undergrads at McMaster (BSc Computer Science and Biology) and UWO (BA Psychology). My GPA at MAC was 3.0 and at Western was 3.85 and my MCAT scores were:

 

Physical Sciences: 10

Verbal: 11

Biological Sciences: 9

Written Sample: Q

 

I was accepted to RCSI, UCC, and UCD. This is my first time applying to these schools.

 

Accepted at: RCSI, UCC, UCD

Rejected at: TCD

Waitlisted: Dalhousie

 

Depending on how you look at it, I am a sucker for love or I went and lost my mind, and withdrew from Dal's waitlist, and I accepted UCD's offer way back in Feb!

It's absolutely ridiculous that Canadian schools won't accept someone with those kind of stats.
