Time Stamp: 12:02 pm (EST)Result: InviteGPA: 3.68 (that's not a typo)MCAT: 514Current Degree: Completing PhD, MSc ConferredGeography (IP/OOP): OOPExtracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): I think my ECs must have really carried me: A lot of research: 10+ publications, 20 abstracts, over 300K in operating grants and scholarships. TA in over 20 courses, lots of employment and leadership, ran two conferences, also involved in one sport for most of my life with international/national level competitions and training 15-20 hours a week. My research is very clinically-based. Not a lot of volunteering because I was always working or training for my sport but for the volunteering I did have I had a high level of responsibility for and it matched well with my other ECs. CASPer: Not sure. Didn't get an invite at Mac but that could be the GPA.
I've never posted here but I wanted to give low GPAs hope! I never thought my first interview invite would be OOP after only ever receiving rejections (I also applied at the end of my masters and didn't receive any interviews). If you have a lot of unique experiences then UofA seems to value that- I'm grateful for their seemingly holistic process.
