  3. Its all good! I have a friend who interviewed last year at both panel/MMI schools who can help us in that regard. Plus I know a few people at McMaster who can lend us tips about MMIs. This was more for students like us to practice prompts alone and together to widen our prespectives and gain feedback with reagrds to visual/body cues, speech habits and of course content. If you are still interested you can PM me your skype and we can take it from there. And good luck at MUN and elsewhere as well!
  4. Hey guys wondering if anyone here wants a little head start on MMIs and wants to practice with me maybe say weekly. I have a few American interviews lined up soon and some are MMIs, but it has been hard to find willing participants on the US forum. I thought I would have better luck here as so many schools use the MMI format. If any of you feel up for it, just PM me your Skype ID and we can start from there! Thanks.
  5. Thanks for the feedback! Yeah my chances at ontario schools aren't great but my gpa does get a boost with the variety of different weighing options and so it ends up being around 3.9 for most schools (except mcmaster of course). Also do you know if american school in general expect masters students to complete their degree before enrollment (like uft). I may start a masters next year and was wondering if that would make me illegible to apply this upcoming summer.
  6. I plan to apply as broadly as I can but I would love some feedback regarding how strong of an international applicant I would be considered. UG year 1: science gpa = 3.38 (9 courses), other gpa = 4 (1 course) UG year 2: science gpa = 3.64 (8 courses), other gpa = 4 (2 courses) UG year 3: science gpa = 3.90 (6 courses), other gpa = 4 (4 courses) Summer Courses between year 3/4: gpa = 3.77 (4,4 - econ, 3.3 - english) UG year 4 (projected): science gpa = 3.92 (9 courses), other gpa = 4 (1 course) OVERALL: science gpa = 3.66 (29 courses), non-science gpa = 3.95 (14 courses), cgpa (33 courses) = 3.76 Will take another english course this summer, but mark won't appear on transcript. MCAT (2012): 12/11/11 R (PS/VR/BS WR) PS: Have any Canadian friendly schools announced their new MCAT policy with the new 2015 one coming out? ECs: part time work (800 hours+) all throughout undergrad (manager at subway restaurant), vp/exec committee of a couple of clubs (3 years), hospital volunteering, 200 hours with local Hindu community center, some odd tutoring/babysitting in highschool, a few short term volunteering positions, have recently started at local old age home (Alzheimer's). Reasearch/Awards: A few gpa based awards, one conference based abstract pub So basically I see people with 3.9+, 32+ get accepted to wayne state and what not, do I have a chance with my low gpa? I appreciate any and all feedback! Thanks
