  1. Hi, having trouble figuring out how to write about my experiences for U of A with such a small character count. I have an example of one, if someone would be willing to tell me I'm on the write track? Work: Camp Counsellor For the summer, I was an overnight camp counsellor for campers in Junior High. I lived with campers & was responsible for their social, emotional & physical well being. I became a detail-oriented worker to ensure camper's needs were met. I effectively communicated with co-workers & collectively problem solved. very, very rough. Obviously needs some work. Just seeing if this is the sort of thing U of A may want.
  2. Hey! I'm finishing up a course based Master's degree. Do they include these grades in my GPA calculations? Can't seem to find it online.

    Casper Question

    For the MCAT, is it just a cutoff or our actual score is taken into consideration?
  4. My stats with NO invitation for interview: GPA: 3.85 EC: 7.00 MCAT: 127.25 Working on course-based masters, GPA is going to increase. I'm thinking where I need to improve is my EC? They are really strong, I'm thinking I just need to work on the writing more? Any insight?
  5. I was rejected pre-interview and haven't gotten an email or letter. Sorry I'm not understanding if my stats will come as an email or a letter...? Kind of weird I haven't gotten anything, they said stats would come out last week.
  6. Does anyone know when we should be hearing about interview invitations? Doesn't say on the U of A timeline
  7. Overall GPA: 3.8 MCAT: 509 CARS 126 ( ) I think my top 10 is really strong. Includes: research, lab volunteering, travelling, camp instructor Is there a chance I can get an interview? I feel like my CARS may not be high enough (I'm basing this off of my knowledge of Ontario schools though)
  8. Hi Just wondering if anyone can give me some direction on the chances of me getting an interview for Med. I haven't written my MCAT yet, but assuming I score well. Experiences include: volunteering in 3 labs, volunteering as an international peer mentor, intramurals, international exchange, tutor for at-risk youth, extremely involved in religious activities and youth groups Currently enrolled in a MPH graduate program Overall GPA (worst year deleted): 3.80

    How To Write?

    Would it even be beneficial to write "I learned how to effectively communicate with co-workers & collaboratively problem solve" Even just switching that one word around? Sorry the struggle is real right now haha
  11. What did you do for the "Description" part of Top 10? Should I talk about the organization and what it is as well as my role, or just focus on the role? I feel that in my "Impact" I do touch on my role. I'm just struggling with the 250 character count and am not sure what they want us to say for it.
  12. What are people's thoughts on putting job shadowing as a a point for diversity of experience. I'm torn between putting job shadowing or backpacking. Any thoughts on how to make my activities as strong as possible.
  13. Hi! I'm doing my MPH internationally and received a huge bursary to help pay for my tuition. Do you think I should include this bursary under awards?

    Award Section: Bursary?

    Even though it was a bursary and was just granted on the basis of my acceptance?
  15. I keep seeing people posting about a podcast of Dr. Walker's talking about writing our top 10 experiences but I can't find it. Could someone post the link please?
