  1. Accepted/Waitlisted/Regrets: Refused In Province (IP)/ Out of Province (OOP): IP AGPA (x.xx/4.5): 4.10 MCAT (xx.xx/528): 513 Rural/Non-Rural: Non-rural Advanced Academics (PhD, pubs, academic appointment): 0
  2. Your stats look really good. Maybe we could start an interview prep group this coming cycle?
  3. Lol how we wrote the same thing at the same time!! Are we going cuckoo or what?
  4. Congratulations, I've been rooting for you!! And yes, partially because of me being waitlisted but mostly because you are an awesome candidate
  5. So was there a correlation with the "WL" to "pending" status????
  6. There are at least 50 non-Med1 students in the class of 2022 fb group. Hoping it doesn't increase by too much..
  7. No clue, I’ve heard 80% round 1 offers, 20% round 2 offers. But I’ve also heard 60:40...
  8. Is this your first time applying? If so, I think it doesn’t hurt to try! If you look at the stats of class of 2021, someone with a 3.75 AGPA got in. They calculate your chances of getting an interview with a weighting of 27.3% AGPA and 72.7% MCAT score. Somehow they do this in a way that accounts for GPAs and MCATs of the entire pool of applicants. It’s likely that the person with the 3.75 GPA had a beyond average MCAT score. (Average was 512 for interviews) Then luckily after interview, the weighting for their enrolment decisions is 15% AGPA, 40% MCAT, 45% MMI. I got an interview this year with a 4.1 AGPA and 513 MCAT. I have completed my MSc and found it hasn’t really helped boost my application for U of M by much since our grades don’t count towards AGPA and UManitoba doesn’t look at your scholarships or research experience like schools in Ontario do. I am approaching two years post-MSc and finally about to have the minimum of 5 first/second author publications required to add the academic coefficient to next year’s application, but I’ve heard it doesn’t count for much. I think you should apply! The application is super simple and doesn’t take too much time. It can’t hurt to gauge whether you should boost your mcat score. Plus rejected applicants have the opportunity to talk with an advisor about your application to see where things could be improved. Hope this helps, I’ll update you if I get in this year!
  9. Since the WL moved by 70-90 in previous years, I would assume probably over 100?
  10. Don't worry, you're not neurotic until you've tried to map out where all the Ontario interviewees are ending up to calculate the odds that it will open up a spot or move you up in the waitlist... #guilty
  11. Is it true that having research in one field can severely limit your chances with a residency position in another field? Sort of like being typecasted based on your previous experience?
  12. Okay so far from the Queen's feed, there are 4 people who were waitlisted by Queen's but accepting another offer (maybe?) and 2 people who were accepted by Queen's but declining for another offer... So that means there are 6 spots for us so far!! lol Queen's does send out rejections today too right?? Does anyone know approximately how many people get rejected first round?
  13. Result: Waitlist Timestamp: 7:46 AM CST GPA: 3.75 MCAT: 513 ECs: Research (5 first author papers and 4 co-author papers, conferences, graduate scholarships including CIHR), student-run health clinic, hospital volunteering, writing tutor, etc. Geography: OOP Interviews: Not so good, especially one of the MMI stations (sooo embarrassing!!!). Wish I had showcased myself better during the panel. Year: MSc (2016), working for the government of Canada
