    Writing MCAT in summer after 2nd year

    Would you be willing to expand on what your background was (which science courses you took) and how much prep was required since you didn't have all the science courses?
  2. Do the MMI questions change from the first weekend to the second weekend? Hard to imagine they wouldn't "get out" giving some applicants an unfair advantage.
  3. Do you remember offhand when the interviews were last year?
  4. Do we know how many people applied this year (complete applications that weren't screened out)?

    Where to get a suit

    To bump off this, anyone else waiting until AFTER they (hopefully) get an interview invite? That should be enough time right?
  6. my app status page has my MCAT score on it, is that what you mean?
  7. still submitted on, crazy theres that much of a difference!
  8. Can you link the podcast please?
  9. I think its fairly unlikely that I get an interview this year, but I was hoping to do a little "soft prep" over the holidays incase I get lucky and get an interview since I think I will be fairly busy leading up to the interview date. Because of this I was wondering if someone could recommend a little light reading I could do to help my get in the right frame of mind/expand my knowledge a little prior to maybe getting an interview invite. Should I go for a specific healthcare related book? a MMI prep book? or just a book that gives some general information about the world such as "outliers" or "Freakonomics"?

    .

    really? I would have thought it was a very solid way to show leadership.
  12. I imagine the answer is no, but I just wanted to check. A "friend" of mine may have accidentally miss labeled his scholarship... would it be worth "him" calling and seeing if "he" could note "his" mistake?
  13. Wrote my MCAT feeling real bad, ended up with a 501 and a 123 in CARS. I've finished my application (just got my MCAT score back today) and already paid, is there any reason to not apply or should I Just click submit to see what happens?

    Submission issue?

    having a similar issue, I hope giving them your credit card before the deadline counts as receiving payment..
  15. Do you have the specific name of the audiobook?
  16. that makes a tone of sense. Thanks for clarifying.
  17. I presented at a local research day, my abstract was "published" in the little pamphlet they give out at the beginning. For the type do I select "non peer reviewed academic of non academic publications"? I assume published abstracts in the other section refers to abstracts that were published in a peer reviewed journal after the conference?
  18. Thanks for the information, I had always thought those booklets were conference proceedings, didn't know that it would have to be somewhere online. So theres no way to distinguish between peer reviewed and non peer reviewed abstracts in Calgary's application?
  19. Thanks for responding so quickly, I feel a lot better now. Happy to hear the servers shutting down isn't a regular thing.
  20. Personal circumstances just came up (family member in the hospital), and I'm not quite done writing my top ten.
  21. Hi everyone, Just wanted to make sure I have the deadline correct. The medical school application are due on October 1st? Nothing needs to be submitted prior to this date correct? I'm writing the MCAT on august 25th and just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything I had to do before this to apply to UofC...
  22. Hi everyone, just wanted to make sure I have the deadline correct. Both the general UofA application as well as the medical school application are due on October 1st? Nothing needs to be submitted prior to this date?
  23. Just to jump on this I would love an august 25th test date (will pay you) Ideally in Toronto but can go to other spots in Canada.
  24. Without getting into to many details, a personal situation has came up which leaves me unable to write the MCAT this Friday. I'm sure I will be ok by late august and have found testing centres with empty spaces left, but is there any way to not write the MCAT this Friday?
