Just getting set up here - don't panic anyone :) Still we are getting close.

Our knowledge has made us cynical.
Our cleverness, hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little.
More than machinery we need humanity.
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

we are going to keep this thread clear to make it easy to read - I know everyone is one egg shells but things do seem to be moving. Hang in there :) Discussion is welcome on the dedicated discussion thread.

Invite: Yaaaaaaasssss!
IP/OOP: IP
SWOMEN: No

2YGPA: 3.86
MCAT: 520 (128 in bio and physics; 132 in CARS and Soc)

ECs: lots of theatre productions, literacy tutoring, refugee org, various internships and jobs, short stints at hospital, community centre, lab, etc...

 

I feel very validated by this invitation: I got invited to interview at McMaster, but I thought it might be my only invitation because I'm coming from an undergrad in drama. Feeling like an Establishment-approved premed now!!
