    NS Waitlist Poll

    I had an email exchange with Renee (one of the admin coordinators) about the waitlist and this is what she had to say. Applicants are categorized into provincial pools – NS, NB, PEI, Non-Maritime and wait lists are kept for each pool.

    Try to keep busy everyone! Hit the gym (healthy heart = healthy mind), focus on upcoming midterms, or finish your MSc. before July 30th (where I am at)! You are all awesome, keep calm and carry on!
  3. If you are an NS applicant and were wait-listed, what was your score?

    Not sure if this will help improve anyone's anxiety about this topic, but I had mine updated on Feb 13th after emailing them asking them to update it, therefore I highly doubt it has anything to do with your admission result. I think the admin just had a minute and updated it.
  5. Thank you! Yes, I applied as a graduate student! What exactly do you want to know about my academic CV, that is a broad question. To address your comment of graduate review results, I have had friends (other graduate students) who have interviewed already, but they were all IP.
  6. Timestamp: March 11, 2019 3:10PM (EST) Interview: March 31 Result: Interview (MD) MCAT: 506 (...Ya I know) GPA: 3.99 ECs: Filled them all. Tried to highlight activities that aligned with CanMeds, but I am definitely research and leadership heavy. Essays: I do not remember how long it took me to write these but I had a few people look them over. A lot of self-reflection went into my responses. Year: 2nd year MSc Geography (OOP) I'm so incredibly excited, I thought this was a total F on my end. So to all those that have not heard back yet, head up, there is still hope!
  7. Hello, I was wondering how reference letters were assessed, do they factor heavily into one's final admission result or are they only used to see if there are any red flags?

    Yes, I am OOP and had my interview last weekend. Honestly, who knows how they do the post-interview evaluation anymore (hopefully more holistically)... I justwent into my interview and gave it my all and then enjoyed learning about UBC's medical program and explored Vancouver. UBC Med is definitely my number 1 choice even though my MCAT may be the thing that stops me from attending. I recommend you do the same, you got this opportunity so go crush it!

    I have a 506 and got an interview so I am in the same worrying boat!

    Interview Preparation

  11. Congratulations to all those who received interviews! I was wondering if any had good online resources for both questions for the classic MMI and the written essay component. I know some of the Facebook groups have test bank questions, but I figured we could consolidate these questions into one location.

    Congrats on finishing MMI Weekend!

    @Dalhousie AAMSHow many of the Med1's thought their interviews went poorly but still got in?
  13. Where does it say the character limit?! I could not find it on the supplemental form.
