  1. I agree with most of the other commenters in this post - I'm really not sure how much the MSc will help you. What I would do if I were you is take a year off to work. I would also consider re-writing the MCAT if you have time. A 128 in CARS is obviously solid but if you could bump it up to a 129 or 130 you'd be essentially guaranteed an interview at Western and it would certainly help you a lot for McMaster. I don't know much about US schools but having a higher MCAT score closer to 520 than 514 may well help you there too!

    3.7 GPA

    Hi, I was accepted to McGill Medicine this year with a 3.70 cGPA. I worked hard to prepare for CASPer and thought my CV was pretty good. In general my advice would be to focus on things that are interesting to you. There are no 'required' extracurriculars so just do what you're passionate about! I also had a 519 MCAT which probably helped me a bit post-interview.

    Accepted/Rejected/Waitlist Thread

    TIME STAMP: around 9am Result: Admitted! (MDCM) cGPA: 3.70, pre-reqGPA: ~3.60 MCAT: 519 ECs: Pretty strong, lots of diversity Year: Graduated BSc in 2017 IP/OOP/International: IP Thought my interview was alright overall but not good enough for an acceptance! I think I did badly on 2 stations but I guess the other 8 must have been good! Very happy to be admitted considering my low GPA!!

    Admitted!!! Good luck everyone!
  10. I got an interview this year with a 3.70 GPA and 130 CARS! You need to assess your application as a whole. If you have a lower GPA you'll need a higher CARS score and CASPer score!

    Thoughts post-interview?

    So do I! I wonder how the MCAT score is scaled to make up 10% of the decision. From what people are saying above it sounds like it is based on ranking compared to other candidates? Although not all candidates have an MCAT score...
