    UBC Post Interview Impressions.

    In theory, they could do all the things they did pre-interview. However, I haven’t heard of anyone having verifiers/references contacted post-interview. It seems like NAQs aren’t assessed as rigorously as they are pre-interview.

    If I’m lucky enough to receive an acceptance I will definitely take the summer off, see friends and family, focus on some R&R before school starts. If not, I’ll kee working throughout the summer

    UBC Post Interview Impressions.

    Usually yes. But in 2015 UBC released before OMSAS. Hoping it’ll be the same this year

    UBC Post Interview Impressions.

    I’m expecting an email today with the notification and I think it’ll be a May 10 D-day. At least that’s how it’s been historically, but we never know with this cycle

    GPA calculation

    Number of credits affects the gpa calculation for UBC. eg: a grade in a 4 credit course is worth twice as much as the same grade in a 2 credit course
  6. You’re misunderstanding, I think. My understanding that it’s number of credits that matter, rather than the number of years.

    Does it matter if you’re IP/OOP for the md-phd pool?

    When to take the MCAT?

    Usually UBC will state on their website what the latest MCAT you can take (it’s usually around August 24-25). That being said, it’s likely more spots will open up around you for these dates or for slightly different dates that meet UBC’s deadline. Moreover, some people end up cancelling/rescheduling, so keep checking the MCAT registration page to make sure you snag one of those spots. I was in a similar position last year and I ended up registering in mid-May. PM me if you need more info I hope that helps!

    Sup! I had an above average interview, ~31 AQ and ~42 NAQ. My MCAT was 510ish last cycle. I rewrote this year and got a 522 so here’s hoping the med school gods will be merciful this time around.

    We will get an email mid-April telling us when D-day will be. Judging from past cycles it seems to be the 2nd friday of May, so the 8th. However, that seems a bit early. Whatever date they decide, *usually* rejections come out ~10am, then waitlists ~11:30, then offers ~ noon.

    I’m just shook by this thread lol I genuinely cannot tell what’s serious and what isn’t

    I don’t think there’s cause for concern. Like I have no idea why PoC garnered so much attention this year... Still 8-9 more weeks of Shrodinger cat-like uncertainty
