  1. You are not alone! When I saw the result, even if I was semi-expecting it, it was still devastating. The idea of not reapplying again crossed my mind, but there is something at the back of my head telling me that I will regret not trying again. One year might seen long right now, but if medicine is what you want to do, you will not regret it as it will become your full time job for the next 30 years or so. I think that 3.7 is quite good for cGPA and you have advantage of having more life experience so don't give up!
  2. Posting here as it might help applicants/future applicants TIME STAMP: 11:45am Result: Refused-Ltd Space Available cGPA: 3.85, pre-reqGPA: 2.85 (really low...) MCAT: not submitted ECs: okay - pm for details Year: BSc. (17') McGill and currently Master Student at an Ivy My interview was not the best (I think that I bombed 4-5 stations...) in addition to the low pre-reqGPA, the outcome was kinda expected. I was even surprised to be invited to the interview...Nonetheless, I am really grateful for the opportunity that I had to attend the mmi. For those who did not get accepted, do not give up! I am planning to take the recommended couses during summer to boost my pre-req GPA (which hopefully will help). Congratulations to all those entering med this year and wish you all the best!
  3. I spoke with a current MD/PhD student prior to interview and was told that there can be up to 4 spots available each year (enough funding to support up to 4 PhDs). From what I understood, the issue is that many applicants meet the PhD requirements, but are not approved by the Med admission committee and therefore are not accepted into the MD/PhD program. Hope that this information is accurate and that there are 2 more spots available (or more if there is more funding? ) for applicants to the MD/PhD program
