  1. The way you write your descriptions make a huge difference. I had a 39 TFR last year and 75th-100th percentile this year but I know my activities are similar to anyone else applying.
  2. Same. I was at work when I got the regrets email earlier today. Just came home and balled to my parents lol. It’s insane how much it changes year to year :/
  3. I cant get in anymore.. I saw it as soon as the email came out and now getting the same error as everyone else!
  4. I got regrets as well and turns out there is no naq or aq score given. Just your gpa and what quartile you are for naq (mine was 75th-100th). Then for how you compare to the pool, it shows a line with three bars (one for where you stand, one for IP cut off and one for OOP cut off).
  5. I am a little late on this, but with your gpa and possibly well written descriptions of your activities, you have a decent shot at UBC as an OOP. Consider applying next cycle!
  6. Hey! No I had the full 120 credits, just had a couple of pass/fail course in my "best 3 years" so didnt have the full 90 credits with grades attached to it. I got a 39 for NAQ- I think it's mainly because of my job (I'm a teacher) and the extra curricular I do around my job along with the ones I did during my undergrad. Other than the teaching, I would say my application is pretty typical of a pre-med student applying. NAQ is so subjective though, that I may not even get an interview in the next cycle lol.
  7. Hey, what's this podcast?
  8. I have been following it and definitely notice a difference but I also am not the type to follow it to a T. I took away the tips I liked and kinda made them my own. I would recommend going through it (their tip on timing was key I felt- 4 minutes on engaged reading and about a minute per question- I literally jump around in my seat while reading to engage and add emotion LOL). He says not to look back while doing questions but I find that with the 4 minutes of reading, I definitely have enough time to look back at the passage for the more specific, detail dependent questions and still finish on time. I'm on Day 23 right now and going to start AAMC material this week so I think that's where I'll really know if it's made a difference. I wrote the MCAT last year and was scoring 128 consistently on the AAMC stuff after glancing over testing solutions material. I did end up with a 126 on the actual MCAT however, but I think that's because I went back and changed like 4 answers in the last 5 minutes of the section which I had never done while doing practice before and that's what dropped my score. At the same time though, I wrote the old mcat years ago and had a 7 on VR so testing solutions definitely made a difference for me.
  9. I think you have a solid shot if you word you activities well. There are a few posts on how to write it. You could also include non-official activities such as hobbies, taking care of an elderly family member etc! If you wanna know more or discuss it further, feel free to DM me. I had an interview with a 78.9 gpa(didn’t qualify for an adjusted gpa unfortunately which would bring me up to 82/83), much lower mcat and was waitlisted this year. If I can make it this far with my gpa, you can definitely get in!
