  1. TIME STAMP: 11:50am PST Result: Accepted to IMP (first choice) Early or Regular Deadline: Regular AGPA: ~87% MCAT: 527 ECs: Diverse experiences including leadership experience and working with marginalized populations Geography: IP Interview: Really didn't know how I did, apparently good enough!
  2. I didn't notice any clocks in the rooms, and personally, I wore a watch. However, I didn't even think of glancing at the watch even once during my actual interview. I think it's better to focus on flowing well versus timing your answers.

  10. inb4 they troll us all and send them out on Friday
  11. Thanks for the information! Could you give a couple examples of "low-mid tier" US med schools? I'm relatively new to the admissions process and it would be great to have a few schools to base the rest of my information hunting off of
  12. Hello, I'm wondering which US and Canadian med schools weigh the MCAT most highly in the admissions process? I recently took the MCAT and scored a 132/132/132/131, this is the first cycle I'll be applying to med school. I am a Canadian applicant (BC resident). Thanks!
  13. Hello, I'm looking for someone to study for the MCAT with in Montreal. In my experience, studying with a like-minded person helps both parties stay motivated and on track. I have just began studying, my test date is August 20th. Thanks!
