Accepted at: RCSI .. haven't heard a word from any other Irish schools.
cGPA: 3.70 (steady upward trend)
MCAT (PS,VR,BS,WS): 10/11/09 S
Graduated with BSc June 2012
ECs: Pretty average - a few long term volunteering commitments, publication, varsity sports team 4 years.
Interview: I thought it went very well during and after.

Decision: Although I have received nothing but rejections from Canadian schools, I am leaning towards hanging tight for a year and reapplying. I feel like if I apply just once to Canadian schools, I'd be doing myself a disservice.

Congratz, if you really want to go to a Canadian school, yes definitely give it another shot

have you considered rewriting the mcat?
