  1. Definitely mention it! Make sure too also explain how you've been able to learn to balance your life with this going on. I would assume they want to see growth despite exceptional circumstances.
  2. I think it’ll be on Tuesday. It seems like they send offers out day after the previous round’s deadline.
  3. UBC blog has been updated- looks like round 2 is all out! Congrats to all the applicants who got the good news today!

    Should I write the MCAT this year or next year?

    I found that this was a really good resource for CARS. https://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/testing-solutions-30-day-guide-to-mcat-cars-success.1131850/ You need an account on SDN to access it. Don't need to pay for the course, everything is written on the post!!
  5. ugh this wait is no fun!
  6. I think most schools have an aboriginal stream- UBC does as well!
  7. Only if this process was a bit more clear
  8. waitlisted!

    MCAT dilemma.. plz help

    I'm in a similar boat but I think imma wait it out until the offers are sent out!
  10. I did a B.Ed right after my undergrad and been working as a teacher for 3 years now. So only a couple years!
  11. Becoming IP for B.C. or Alberta might not be a bad idea. I’m a non traditional applicant from B.C. I applied to UBC this year with a GPA pretty close to yours and got an interview. I understand a high GPA is prefered but you can definitely make up for it through your non academic activities. I may or may not get in but the fact that I got an interview, I know there’s a chance despite my gpa.
  12. Has anyone had any experience with MMI prep courses? Would you recommend them? (sorry if this has already been asked)
  13. TIME STAMP: 11:05am PST Interview Invite or Regrets: Invite Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): UG GPA was 3.4ish, 3.5 at best (77-80%) even, MCAT: 507 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): B.Sc., B. Ed. Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Teacher, lots of volunteering in leadership positions- soup kitchen, hospital, clubs during undergrad, talked about a few activities i do for self-care (writing, fitness etc), talking care of grandma etc., travelling I applied in the 2014/2015 cycle and had about 40 TFR i believe. Focused on a different career in the meantime as I needed a break from school. Have been very content with my life but working with the demographic I work with, I've realized that I want to work with this demographic from a medical perspective as there is very little teachers can do when the students aren't receiving proper medical care. I poured out my heart and soul into the application and feeling so thankful to have received this opportunity!
