  1. Hi Everyone, For those of you coming off unfortunate rejections or have a gap year and wish to bolster your application while contributing to a research lab, please see below. The Rodrigues Lab, in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at UBC, is looking for a motivated trainee to join our research group for an 8 month project. There will also be an option to extend this opportunity into an MSc position, dependent on the progress of the project. This is a paid position. We use cell culture (endothelial cells and cardiomyocyte isolation), and other molecular biology/biochemistry techniques to investigate the regulation of cardiac metabolism during diabetes. If you are interested please contact: Bahira Hussein at bahira@mail.ubc.ca with your CV. Thanks
  2. Missed it by less than a point! Gl to everyone else
  3. Wow, really? Or is this a troll
  4. Final half hour! Can't focus at all
  5. I have 2 finals, can't focus haha
  6. ^ in response to your question, it seems like people have alot higher AQs this year. This could be because the prereqs were taken out so people had time to take "easy courses" to boost their GPA.
  7. Last year came out at 5 pm, so we may be in for a long day
  8. Seems like 100 less BC applicants this year?

    Verifier Question

    Probably just means that you got a file review? Also depends on how many entries you had but usually I think they check between 1-7. However, I'm just saying this off of what I've heard.
  12. I was just wondering. Because UBC is only accepting the 2015 MCAT for this cycle and future cycles, do you think that there would be a decrease in the number of applicants? Usually, UBC gets 5 years worth of applicants (Old MCAT lasted 5 years) but the 2015 MCAT has only been out for a couple of years, so UBC only has applicants from the last two years. I know that most people probably upgraded if they hadn't already written the new MCAT but even a 10-20% decrease in applicants may be possible? What do you all think?
  13. 3) How many verifiers do you check and why? We check at least one verifier (usually more) for every applicant who receives a full file review. Sometimes we check a few, sometimes we check them all. We contact them either via email or phone. Verifiers are checked both randomly and for specific reasons. This is an integral component of our evaluation process. It helps to ensure that what you have written is an accurate reflection of your experiences. Most likely they are still checking but this is off the UBC website.
