  1. I'll start for this year Result: Rejected Geography: OOP GPA: 3.79 MCAT: 513, 128 in Cars Degree: HBSc conferred in 2017 E.C: 10/17, though 12/17 was highest for the cycle so happy about that! A few research projects (no pubs), academic awards and lots of extra curricular activities in undergrad. Post grad, worked at some of the largest start ups in North America and now run my own company. Definitely gained a lot by doing some work post grad, initially was to complete my MPH but will now be doing my MBA. Interview: Felt pretty good about the majority of the stations. The panel did catch me a tad off guard given the format. Had lost my voice for the entire weekend so happy I pushed through and will relegate my performance to that (rationalization at its finest) Thanks for all the support on this platform, will be accepting an offer for a medical school in States, so probably no more posts on here for a while, atleast until residency time!
  2. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN! IS IT TODAY??? - pardon the all caps enthusiasm
  3. With Calgary out today, I think a sooner ish release from UofA could be plausible
  4. "we are in the end game now" and its brutal lol, totally agree.
  5. Chances they'd meet in the morning and release decisions in the afternoon? Or too far fetched? Eek the wait is a monster

    Interview Reflection

    I enjoyed the MMIs but the panel was very different from what I expected, in terms of format and overall style of discussion.
  7. Any idea when the interview video for this year will be going online? It was AMAZING and I can't wait to see it again
  8. Hey all, So here is the situation, I entering into the 3rd year of my undergrad degree, my UofT cGPA is 3.69 - Omsas- not eligible for weighting this year. Some of my non academics include: - 10 000 greenest school award for my high school as president of the Environment Council - TA for online course in intro psych with 10k plus students of all ages - Psych Award - Research Scholarship for $1500 - Campus First Responder, President and Founder of a council, senior exec on greater than 5 councils - Editor in chief of campus science magazine - Overseas volunteering - Public relations volunteer and research student for two Non Profit Organizations run by doctors in the global health field - Currently editing a manuscript for publication on the Effects of Volunteer Medical Trips Abroad - Numerous research experiences as well as lab management - Tutor, Exam Invigilator - Volunteer experiences with MSF, CBCF and MS Society totalling 6 years (2 years each) - High School Youth Volunteer Organization founder - upwards of 30 students placed in various retirement homes and other typical university extracurricular involvement Next year I am eligible for WGPA that will increase my grade point to around 3.88-3.91 Right now I'm trying to decide if my non academics and maybe my personal essays can make up for my lower GPA this year or is it not worth applying?? Thoughts?

    Mcat Score Release

    Thank you so much!!! I am definitely agree with you and think I should apply regardless. Thus if I don't feel ready for my Aug 5th test date I will push it to Sept 1st. This way I have more time to study and let the cards fall where they may!! Many thanks!!

    Mcat Score Release

    Hey, I am having trouble deciding on whether its better to write the MCAT on an earlier test date (Aug 5) while not feeling fully prepared yet - but getting scores before Oct 1 - or writing the MCAT on Sept 1 and getting the score after application. By pushing the date I will basically have a month more of practice/review however I am not sure if the risk is worth it as I could end up doing poorly and waste an application. Let me know what you think
