  1. How likely is it to get an interview off the waitlist? Anyone know how many they waitlist vs how many actually decline an interview?

    Western Now Looking at ECs

    If someone has decent ECs with a well rounded MCAT and 128 CARS, is it worth rewriting now or not? Asking for a friend... (Na jks it's for me)

    Queens Waitlist 2018

    Does anyone know approx how many people are waitlisted, and how many get in off the waitlist? I know it doesn't mean much but this wait just sucks so much.
  7. Does anyone know how the wait list movement is. Also, when are they gonna start drawing from the wait list?

    Rewriting Mcat Advice

    I wrote the MCAT this summer and got a 514 (128/128/129/129 -- Chem/CARS/Bio/Psych). Rest of my stats are mid-tier. While I thought this was a decent score, I got no interviews this cycle from applying to Ontario. I am now thinking of rewriting, specifically to improve CARS (preferably 130+). Not really worried about the other stats. ​I know it might be a longshot, but I feel that since I have already gone through the MCAT once I know what to expect and how to study. So I was wondering if anyone had any advice regarding how to improve CARS beyond a 128 (again, 130+ is the goal). I felt like last time I did it my studying was pretty rushed. ​Any specific resources for CARS? Any strategies? ​Any help is appreciated, and thanks so much!
  9. So recently I've been reading about the changes in CARS scores percentiles (http://forums.premed101.com/index.php?/topic/93356-a-129-cars-is-now-in-the-95th-percentile-last-cycle-it-was-not/). ​My question is, for 2017/2018 (the next cycle), is there really any hope for someone with a 128 in CARS (non-SWOMEN)? I mean I know the 130 is high and it may drop to 129, but is a 128 pushing it (even though it was 11VR last cycle)? It would also be nice to know how the bio, physics, and psych sections are going to be used in the years to come. Thanks. Just trying to gauge whether or not it's worth rewriting.
