    UBC Invite/Regrets 2019

    I got the same response. Give them a while to get around to us rejects. They'll get around to us eventually once they get their 2023 class affairs settled.

    UBC Invite/Regrets 2019

    I was part of the last interview weekend at the 3pm slot. Vicki had said definitely by the end of March during our exit interview. I don't remember hearing a March 11 during the conversation. She had mentioned that they were going to have 2 or so meetings to discuss it and that one of the meetings would have been last Friday. Now whether that's the first of them or the last them I can't say for sure.

    UofA DDS Post-Interview thoughts

    Yeah the MMI questions were pretty vanilla compared to what I've gotten from past interviews. This interview was first time I didn't feel terrible about my responses. Of course I could've explained things a bit better but for me it's an improvement compared to when I've applied the first 2 times. Hopefully it turns out well for everyone.

    Very late interview invite as someone dropped theirs! Anyone have any scheduling info as I hastily try to plan a trip over to Vancouver? The e-mail said Friday and Saturday but not much asides from that.

    UofT Interview Invites 2019

    Rejected. UofT was a bit of a reach for me anyway thanks to the grade conversions and because they don't look at the fall semester marks.

    November 2018 DAT Thoughts

    Confirmed UofT sent me an e-mail around a day after the scores came out confirming they have all my documents.

    November 2018 DAT Thoughts

    Most if not all the Canadian universities take this November DAT as the last acceptable one for this cycle. I'm not 100% on Aussie schools. Personally I haven't written in February for the past couple of times I've written it but I have many friends that wrote it then after writing a November DAT. Don't get me wrong, work is work but IMO I think it would be a little bit easier to relearn the information given that you had put in the work to learn the content for the most recent November DAT. When it comes to writing November v.s. February, I'm pretty sure less people write during the February sitting. Regardless of when you write and the number of people that do write, this doesn't change the fact that you still have to do well on that particular test (albeit relative to everyone else but you can only control how well you do so you might as well focus on that). I really like @purplethang's outlook on it. Hungry. Resilience and heart right there. You can come up with whatever reason one month may be better to write than the other but if you hit a home run with that particular test, there shouldn't be a reason that they can't give you a higher score. I think for this sitting, we can dismiss some of the lower scoring as an anomaly and just hope for the best in future rewrites.

    November 2018 DAT Thoughts

    Man my BIO score last year when I didn't even study for the sciences section was higher than this LOL. I was ready to throw some hands and ask about re-grades until I saw that scale. That's tough. RC: 22 BIO: 17 (I got an 18 last year just for reference) CHEM: 27 Science average: 20 AA: 22 PAT: 20 MDT: 24 At least I have a higher score from one of my retakes for UofA. I'm a little bit sad that my PAT score has progressively lowered since my first attempt. I'm glad that my AA managed to get to >20 but I'm not sure if it's enough after lurking around the forums for OOP stats. The grade conversions as an OOP applicant don't really help me out so I was hoping to score higher in terms of raw score especially when BIO was taken into consideration.

    Question about UBC checklist...

    I've been checking since the CASPER website said they sent the results over to them. Nothing on my end either.

    What are you listening to?

    Anything Shoji Meguro for me I'm pretty big into funk/soul/old school hip-hop as well. Really digging this track I just found today too

    They'll send out an e-mail to everyone saying you can access it. If you're feeling really keen, you can log-in to the student download section around early December to maybe catch the results a day before they send out their mass e-mail telling everyone the DAT transcripts are available for download. I've been trying to muster up the energy to prepare for the final I have coming in about a week. One habit I picked up while studying for the DAT was to browse /r/premed and /r/MCAT for their memes like the one below so that's somewhat kept my mind off of waiting.
