  1. Posting for use in later application cycles - good luck!

     

    Result: Waitlist - bad (May 10)

    Time Stamp: 8:02am

    wGPA: 3.95
    MCAT: 13/10/14
    ECs: Work in a research lab (1 semester), cancer centre within a hospital (2 summers), orientation week leader and student society executive, co-authorship on one paper published, volunteering at a hospital for 3 years, shadowing a family doctor

    Interview: Did not go very well, I think. I felt that I couldn't get through to the interviewers, and the panel style was challenging.
    Year: UG 4th year


  2. More data!

     

    Result: Waitlisted (May 10)

    Time Stamp: 8:22am

    cGPA: 3.95
    VR: 10
    ECs: Work in a research lab (1 semester), cancer centre within a hospital (2 summers), orientation week leader and student society executive, co-authorship on one paper published, volunteering at a hospital for 3 years, shadowing a family doctor

    Interview: I liked the MMI format very much. Felt that maybe 2 of the stations didn't go great, but I gave some of my best answers on MMI questions here, I thought.
    Year: UG 4th year

     

    Removed myself from the waitlist after an acceptance from Queen's. Good luck!


  3. Added for data in later cycles

     

    Result: Rejection

    Time stamp: 9:29am

    wGPA: 3.97
    MCAT: 13/10/14
    ECs: Work in a research lab (1 semester), cancer centre within a hospital (2 summers), orientation week leader and student society executive, co-authorship on one paper published, volunteering at a hospital for 3 years, shadowing a family doctor

    Interview: My final interview and I think my performance was mediocre at best. Not very convincing answers, and I think that this is what did me in.
    Year: UG 4th year


  4. Result: Accepted off waitlist - 11:41am (Jun. 1)

    2yGPA: 3.95
    MCAT: 13/10/14
    ECs: Work in a research lab (1 semester), cancer centre within a hospital (2 summers), orientation week leader and student society executive, co-authorship on one paper published, volunteering at a hospital for 3 years, shadowing a family doctor

    Interview: Queen's was my first and I think my best one. MMI went well though I thought some answers could have been better (afterwards), I felt that the panel was relaxed and easy-going.
    Year: UG 4th year

     

    Excited to be coming to Queen's! Loved Kingston when I went for the interview and the current students were awesome!

    OOP

    Letter of EC: No

     

    Thought I had a strong app, but the OOP chances are never good at McGill. I see a lot of other talented OOPs who also did not get invited.

    Good luck to everyone with an interview!


  10. Time stamp: 1:00pm EST


    Result: Regrets


    wGPA: 4.0

    Essay: I felt really good about it, my essay had a nice flow to it and really integrated all of my experiences as a whole, and the Maritime connection was a family vacation to PEI.


    Year: Bachelor's year 4


    IP/OOP: OOP


     


    I was looking forward to visiting Halifax during the interviews, but alas, it's not meant to be! Good luck to everyone who got an interview! :)



  11. I just submitted my application today (yay!), and one thing I think you should note is that OMSAS needs to receive your payment by the deadline in order for the application to be considered valid. Specifically, this is what it says on my application now, since I chose to pay by online banking:

    Payment Information
    • The OUAC must receive payment by the stated deadline or your application will be invalid.

    Online Banking (Canadian banks and credit unions only). Normally takes 1-3 business days.

     

     

    So, just a thought. If you plan to use online banking to pay, I don't know if it would be processed in time... There is a credit card option as well, not sure if it would be faster.

     

    Hope that helps!
