  1. What did you do to maintain/improve your NAQ from one year to the next? Did you reuse any part of your application?
  2. Out of 5 people that I know of who interviewed at Queens in 2018, 1 got in right away, 2 got in off the waitlist (at the two week mark), and 2 got rejected outright. I thought this might help ease your anxiety
  3. I'd love to, PM me! I recieved interviews at Queens and UBC so I may be able to help.
  4. Here's to hoping there will be an edit below this sentence in two weeks. Result: Waitlist Timestamp: May 14 8:44AM GPA: 3.96 MCAT: 516 EC's: unique & long-term Geography: IP Year: Graduated 2018 Interview: Felt very good about 4 MMI stations. 1 station was rough though. I thought my panel was relatively good as well.
  5. Queens has a student breakdown of: 90 traditional, 10 QUarms, (up to) 5 armed forces, (up to) 5 international So they accepted 90 of the 500 interviewed. Last year they offered an acceptance to 94 more students.
  6. 184 people were given an offer last year. That's ~94 waitlist offers (+ people that removed themselves from the waitlist that were next in line) If only we knew how many people got waitlisted. No one has said that they got rejected so far
  7. I had a very.. unique panel. I dont really see how it could've gone exceptionally well. Here's to hoping the MMI is actually weighted more. Thanks for the input guys
  8. It seems like everyone that got accepted had a great panel. MMI didn't seem to matter as much. Does anyone that got accepted have any insight?
  9. Can’t say I agree with this. Many people with lower GPAs get interviews at Queens and Western. Your wGPA is 3.83, which isn’t bad. A 516 is also considerably stronger than a 510. That being said, many people more deserving than you or I have been rejected outright, so one can never assume they’ll interview no matter how good their application is. You’re set for a USDO, Id much rather do that than dentistry if medicine was my calling.
  10. Western has a new MCAT cutoff of 126/128/126 -- 380. You can land an interview given strong ECs. You're also quite competitive for queens given strong ECs and reference letters. (I got an interview with a 516). I personally wouldn't rewrite the MCAT, but I also wouldn't want to wait for Canadian med. The reality is that competitive applications are often dismissed. I would apply everywhere (International, USDO, USmed, CANmed) and decide on my career choices when I get accepted. Stay in there, your MCAT score & ECs gives you a world of hope!
  11. Result: INVITE Time Stamp: 9:20am Interview Date: Deciding wGPA/cGPA: 3.96 Year: UG - 4th year MCAT: 516 ECs: Unique & Long-Term Geography: IP I wasn’t too happy after not receiving an invite from Ottawa, but this interview makes up for it! We’re almost there. UofT, hit me up.
  12. TIME STAMP: December 12 (2:05 EST) Interview Invite or Regrets: Interview invite Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): 92.3% MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 516 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): UG Geography (IP/OOP): OOP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Unique & long-term It’s a huge relief to get an interview so early in the cycle. Everyone hang in there. One interview invite is all you need!
  13. We can’t say without getting your wGPA for Ottawa & UofT. Your MCAT would need to improve for Western & Queens. With your numbers, Mac is a possibility if you write a stellar Casper. Ottawa and UofT are possible with a 3.9+ wgpa.
