  1. from my understanding, they typically call when if the verifier has not responded to their email or the email bounced back.
  2. if you get an interview, you'll receive more information about the reference letters. you haven't really described your club activity, so not sure how much help this is for you. student clubs aren't traditionally considered community service activities. they're more extracurricular leadership activities. community service are things like: soup kitchen, hospital volunteer, leading an activity for the community benefit (eg free exercises for seniors or individuals with disability).
  3. 3 of my verifiers were contacted last Monday (oct21). A friend of mine had 2 of his verifiers contacted this morning ---- that we know of.
  4. https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/2014/10/29/october-update-verifiers-and-more/
  5. They wrote in one of their blog posts that everyone gets at least 1 verifier contacted.
  6. Can someone please shed some light on the following statement: "A full-time academic year where the equivalent of four (4) courses per semester is taken is accepted and counted in the WGPA calculation only if the missing course/credit is completed either as an additional course within another academic year or as a summer course." My breakdown is: Year 1: 29 credits Year 1 summer: 9 credits Year 2: 32 credits Year 2 summer: 7 credits Year 3: 29 credits Year 4: 27 credits Year 5: 30 credits Would the WGPA calculation consider my Year 3, Year 4, and Year 5 because I have completed the missing credits of Year 3 and Year 4 with summer course in Year 2 summer? I am a bit unsure because the summer course is before Y3 and Y4.
  7. It seems that UBC has removed the "accepted for publication" option for the research section. Are we not allowed to include journal articles that were accepted for publication before June 1st 2018, but published after June 1st 2018...?
  8. Based on what you wrote, it looks like 2 entries to me. 1 in high performance & 1 in diversity of experience.
  9. this a premed forum, not a predent forum – regardless, from my limited understanding, averages to get into dentistry is around 85-86% (for UBC DMD at least), so you're on the lower end of competitiveness. Generally speaking, your chances seem lower than other candidates with higher averages.
  10. To assess how you'll likely perform on test day, you need to do a FL AAMC timed. I wouldn't panic or feel discouraged unless you're scoring low on the AAMC FL.
  11. Looks strong, I'd advise to diversify a bit & go out of your comfort zone in terms of your ECs to make it even stronger.
