  1. I'm definitely willing to put in some extra school, as long as it's not too intense or time-consuming. Thank you so much for your suggestions!!
  2. Hey! Good for you for giving it another shot! I would suggest that you choose an undergrad program that could lead you to a decent career if med doesn't work out (or if you change your mind about it). Doing well in an undergrad program could allow you to increase your GPA, while a master's likely wouldn't. Also, you don't want to burn yourself out by doing an unnecessary master's. If you think you can do well in math or engineering, I think those would be fabulous options. Psych would be an option too, but with only a BSc, you'd be more limited in career options if med doesn't work out. It depends on what you'd prefer! Best of luck!
  3. Hey everyone, I've recently decided to call it quits on applying to med school, and I'm looking for advice as to what my next career move should be. A bit about me: I'm a non-traditional applicant with an MSc in biochemistry. My MSc took a lot out of me due to a bad environment and other issues. At this point, I'm extremely burnt out and looking to finally settle down and take on a career with a decent lifestyle. If I could go back in time, I would have applied to pharmacy school and gone into clinical pharmacy as I really enjoy chemistry and pharmacology. At this point, I don't know if this is a feasible option for me as tuition is very expensive, school is 4 years, and the workload is notoriously hard to manage (at least from what I've heard). Right out of undergrad, I don't think that any of these would have been deciding factors but as I said, I don't know how much more intense schooling I can take. What I'm looking for: I'd prefer a career path or job in which I can have a great deal of independence or even work for myself. I would also prefer to stay away from lab research and from clinical research if possible. Ideally, I'm looking for a meaningful job with a decent salary potential. I'm aware that this is a tall order, but if anyone has been in a similar situation and has advice, or if anyone has any insights, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!!
  4. Does anyone know how many waitlist emails are sent out?
  5. TIME STAMP: 2:14 EST Result: Waitlist Early or Regular Deadline: Regular AGPA: Around 88%? I don't remember exactly MCAT: 509 ECs: Extensive and long-term. I'm a non-trad applicant. MSc completed. Geography: OOP Interview: Average. I didn't think it went particularly well... I definitely messed up on a couple of stations; however, I think I excelled at the writing station. For some reason, I KNEW I would get waitlisted. I just knew. Don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful to still have a chance Congrats to those who were accepted!! To those who were rejected, I'm so sorry... I know how hard it can be. Please don't take it personally and know that a med school acceptance/rejection has little/nothing to do with your character and value as a person.

    Decision day

    Has anyone been waitlisted at UBC before? If I'm waitlisted, I'm wondering if admin will tell me what position I am and the stats of the people before me (eg # IP vs OOP).
