  1. Last year they asked you to write about the top 5 highlights/ experiences of your life. Sort of like the first question asking you about 2 of them but 5.
  2. I don't think there's a best way to write your activities. Some people were more direct, some were not. I personally had a mix of pure description and some reflective moments and that seemed to work well for me! Best of luck
  3. U of A takes your best score overall. U of C takes your highest CARS (someone correct me if i'm wrong) Both schools will see all your MCAT writes, but only U of C has said that they will use that as a review as part of the subjective academic assessment.
  4. I have friends in med that used it to backpack europe. You do you!
  5. dont take it bruv remember me 3.6 gpa, 506 124 cars lmao
  6. I filled out all activities except only had 3/4 volunteering. Entries ranged from a few thousand hours employment to 50-100 on the lower end for a leadership role. All my activities were long term no less than 2 years
  7. I'd say with your GPA, you would need to do a bit more course work, (possibly continue with work, as suggested above). Have a strong MCAT with strong ECs. Don't expect anything, but budget anywhere from 3-5 years to get into medicine depending where you are currently. If you meet the minimums to apply, do it!
  8. Are you taking organic chemistry just to write the MCAT? I self studied and it's something you can definitely do. YMMV though.
  9. I had experiences where they were long term activities with many different commitments, and within them I also had a formal leadership role. I listed one under volunteer and the other in leadership. You could call this double listing but the activities themselves were significant enough even though there fell under the same "activity" if that makes sense. I filled out most of my activities, but only had 3/4 for volunteering. As for your LGBTQ entry, I would approach this like any other life experience/ diversity entry involving a personal experience. Try and stray away about too much of a description or story and focus on what impact it has had on you. Personally for me, I didn't want to seem like I was asking for a second look based on some anecdotal adversity I may or may not have faced. It's much harder for someone to score you that way vs exploring what you've learned and how it has shaped who you are.
  10. Office of admissions told me my spot will be given to someone else this year Best of luck!
  11. Hi everyone! I have just deferred to start next year. Hope this helps someone out for a spot! :)
