  1. Its very possible, I did it. I would say its worth an application always. There are exceptions all the time. Good ECs in that case are crucial, but don't need to be earth shattering.
  2. i did a second degree and wrote an explanation. I think they threw the first one out.
  3. You're welcome. Relax, live your life, and trust things will work out
  4. I applied with a GPA in the low 3.8s. Certainly possible, but need to be more competitive in the other components of the application.
  5. Hi Albert, Don't want to frighten you, but I remember hard copy submissions. But, I think I was behind too. And I frigging drove it to the office. That might still be a possibility. Good luck. Obviously confirm you still need hard copies
  6. Depending how my explanation essay was applied, my GPA was roughly 3.7, with a qualifying mcat and good ECs. I don't know if its right to say that 3.5, especially as a grad student, is not going to happen, with exceptional and distinguishing ECs. Just temper expectations.
  7. Certainly possible to get invited for interview and get accepted. I applied as an undergrad and was accepted with a GPA of under 3.8. It's certainly less likely than having a 4.0. If you can afford the application cost without much burden, apply.
  8. For sure! I scored very poorly my first calgary interview and next year did much better.
  9. Hi, I believe you are underestimating the weighting by half. 3 courses is 3 full courses, or 6 semester courses. Also many people, like myself apply after 4th year. Thats 4 full courses, or just shy of 1 full year. Thats a lot. My wGPA was still pretty crappy but was an improvement of more than 0.3 over my cumulative GPA.
  10. Result: Accepted to St. George Time Stamp: May 10, 2016 Interview Date: April 10 wGPA: 3.82 MCAT: above cut-offs ECs: Wide-ranging. PM if interested Essays: A little scattered, took some liberties with the question asked, and assumed a couple controversial interpretations Interview: Felt OK: tried to answer sincerely and honestly Year: MA (course-based) completed
