  1. Late post, but thought I would in case it helps anyone. Interview Invite or Regrets: RegretsEarly or Regular Deadline: RegularGPA or AGPA (if applicable): 84 - 85%MCAT: 511 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): MSc completeGeography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities: Pretty diverse. Five long-term commitments, both past and present (200+ hours) in research, community service, school club. Numerous shorter term commitments (<100 hours) in various capacities. Music, proficient in a couple languages, one travel experience, a couple unstructured activities like hobbies but not much. Non-trad applicant so quite a few jobs, including career jobs in my field of study. No high performance or major awards, but all other categories were filled. Last application got me an interview and waitlisted, I'm sure largely due to my NAQ. Saw a pretty big drop this time despite adding hours and new activities. Made a major effort to write clearly and solely focus on what I did, rather than what I learned. Likely my last application after four cycles, but who knows! congrats to those who got invited!

  11. Both of mine were employers too
  12. Excerpt below is from a 2014 blog post by UBC. If that still holds true then anyone who receives the full file review will have a verifier(s) contacted. This post was from late October, and from another part of the post, they stated that they hadn’t completed all file reviews yet, so not everyone would have had a verifier contacted yet. I don’t think we can make any conclusions based on timing/number of verifier contact. 3) How many verifiers do you check and why? We check at least one verifier (usually more) for every applicant who receives a full file review. Sometimes we check a few, sometimes we check them all. We contact them either via email or phone. Verifiers are checked both randomly and for specific reasons. This is an integral component of our evaluation process. It helps to ensure that what you have written is an accurate reflection of your experiences.
  13. I think it is a good thing. In the past, when I hadn’t heard back from verifiers, I didn’t get an interview. When I heard from verifiers, I got an interview
