    MCAT Cut-off for C/P

    Honestly it is all just speculation on the Queens forum. After reading your UBC posts, I really hope you get that interview to Queens though. With all subsections over 127 you certainly are not in a bad place though, having a balanced score is probably seen as a positive?

    Interview Invites date?

    Got a final in the morning too! Hoping I don't wake up to an R and then have to go write a test haha.
  3. Mine still says "submitted on"
  4. 8 schools and OOP for UBC. Also applied to 4 in Ontario, U of S, U of C, and U of A.

    Calculated GPA too high?

    Are you guys In-Province? Mine is not posted yet.

    Calculated GPA too high?

    You can see your GPA already? Where at?
  7. I'm not too familiar with the U of T grad school reference, but for a verifier you could certainly find someone else to put down which would be much less of a risk.
  8. Ya I think it is worth it. No posted cut offs as far as I know. Great overall MCAT and GPA.
  9. UBC application seems pretty similar to OMSAS, so it will take roughly the same amount of time. Writing ABS entries takes a while.

    Chance me

    I believe you have a shot at UBC, Toronto, Ottawa, McGill, possibly Dalhousie. Do not have chance at Alberta, Calgary, Sask, Manitoba, McMaster, Western due to MCAT / MCAT cars restrictions. Queens and NOSM are very unlikely. I can't speak for other Quebec/Maritime schools.

    MCAT advice would be to invest in the AAMC practice package with the 3 FL's (write them closest to test date), Official guide, section banks, question packs, etc. These are the most closely representative of MCAT imo. Also, take ~1.5 days to review a full length exam, that is how you improve your scores the most once you are done most of the content review.

    Physics and math on the MCAT?

    For math, you have to learn how to do calculations without using a calculator. Basically learning how to quickly estimate values and do dimensional analysis. Answers might be like 0.01g, 10g, 1000g, etc... For physics, yes of course spend time on it. You will have to memorize all of the formulas on the Kaplan quick sheets (pretty helpful for review). Beyond that, it is very important to do lots of practice problems because the MCAT physics (primarily passage based) is nothing like undergrad courses and often incorporates biology/chemistry as well in the passage.
