  1. I think I did very well. All interviewers were extremely receptive to my responses. Hopefully I didn't say anything too controversial or break privacy standards when telling stories of my personal experiences.
  2. just to clarify - we don't need to upload proof of enrolment if we've already graduated?

    Interview Invites/Regrets 2019

    Invite Time Stamp: 22/01/2019 - 9:53am PST Location: OOP Stream: English wGPA: how to calculate?? no idea. Not even close to a perfect GPA. Will edit once someone helps me with this. Current year: UG complete ECs: Kind of all over the place. Research, work with minority groups, hobbies, EC's, started some sports initiatives on campus. I am also one of the scholars for a T5 medical school in the US. Casper: Wrote casper previously - I have years of CS experience under my belt so it didn't feel challenging at all. 125 CARS and still made it!! Does anyone know date availabilities? The one I got doesn't really work for me :\.
  4. Hey all, I was wondering how you all managed to meet prereqes for american medical schools that have credit requirements? ex 8 credits of physics lab+lecture I'm struggling to meet inorganic requirement of 8 credit hours of lab+lecture as well as 8 credits physics lab+lecture. UBC offered phys 101, and 118 which was 3 and 4 credits respectively. As for inorganic, one of our chem courses did not have lab, so again, I have 7 credits. What did you do to meet requirements ? Suggestions welcome.

    AMCAS SCALES for Canadian Schools

    UBC student here. When I enter my grades into AMCAS, do I enter my %, letter grade, or both?
  6. I would like to join as well! I am in Vancouver.
  7. Question as written via topic title. So basically I wanted to write the MCAT in August, would it be viable for me to apply this year to medical schools as well (notably UBC?). I would be going into my 4th year in September. I'm sure this would depend on my mcat score, but assuming a 115+ and a solid 3.68 GPA (~83 avg), what would you suggest?
  8. Wow, I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who contributed their knowledge to this thread. I have a better sense of what I have to do if I want to excel in sophmore year. I will work my butt off, this is something I want to do . But first, off to science advising to figure out what courses to take
  9. Hey guys! I'm a student who just finished their first year at UBC. Many people say after the first year in sciences many students give up on the whole "I want to be a doctor" dreams but I havent. I struggled with the transition, but kept motivating myself to do better and ended up with a decent avg (~80). I got better marks second semester. My question is for all those people who get 85+ averages consistently:how do you do it? I've been able to improve my studying habits and sacrificed a lot of time to study instead, but I feel like I'm not working at max efficiency. People say it gets easier after 1st year, but does it really? Let alone declaring my major (probably doing bio, I enjoyed it!), I have no idea what arts electives I'd like to take. How'd you all go about selecting electives 2nd year? I don't really have anyone older to talk to so I only have this forum to ask. Any advice is appreciated -TGA
