    MCAT Cut-off for C/P

    They look at your overall GPA, and your last 2 years, whichever one is higher is the one they will use for their cutoff/ranking system.

    MCAT Cut-off for C/P

    The MCAT cutoffs change each year I think, I know of someone who received an interview last cycle with a GPA in the low 3.8s and a 509 MCAT with a 125 in one section and 126 in another. My educated guess is that each year, their cutoff for GPA is low 3.8s or high 3.7s, and their MCAT cutoff is 125-126 per section, with an overall cutoff between 508-511.
  3. TIME STAMP: 8:28 EST Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): ~88-89% Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): 4th year UG Geography (IP/OOP): OOP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): A little bit of everything, including standard hospital volunteering, other clinical volunteering, research but no publications, member of multiple on campus clubs, working part time at various jobs, and probably some other stuff that I'm forgetting right now. NAQ: ~25 AQ: ~29 TFR: ~54 Idk what to say at this point, I am obviously quite upset for being rejected. I'm also a little jealous because I know that some people with lower TFRs than me will get interviews and will inevitably get accepted this year due to being in province, but such is life. This is my first time applying, and this is my first rejection, it definitely stings, but I am hopeful that my home province of Ontario will show me some love. If not, then well I guess I'll be applying again for round 2. Good luck to all of you who receive interviews!

    Interview Invites date?

    Does anyone know what time the rejections came last year? Were they all out in the morning? Also did the all come at once, or were they spaced out throughout the day?

    OOP Averages

    Don't worry you're not alone! I am at 88% too haha.

    Interview Invites date?

    Thanks so much! I'm also kinda worried now that they might just send rejections today without any update email! Since on their website it says interview invitations are early December, and the deadline to book an interview is mid December. I hope that I'm wrong though!

    Casper October 23rd

    I wrote on the 23rd too, and this is something totally outside our control, and even out of McGill University's control. We need to just sit tight.
  11. I experienced the same thing this cycle. Had about 5 verifiers contacted in beginning of October, then had 1 contacted at the end of October. I also did not apply to any Northern or Rural Training. My guess is that they can contact verifiers randomly whenever they feel like it, so there isn't any point in trying to find some hidden meaning behind this. Although it is good to know that we have received a full file review.

    OMSAS GPA Calculations

    I am from york and have a similar issue. I think its best if we contact OMSAS and med schools separately and let them know.

    UBC AQ (estimate) equations

    Does the AQ also take course load and difficulty into consideration? For e.g. If I take above a full course load each year, take many difficult upper year bio courses, and have multiple 0 credit courses (research practicums) with a 90% GPA, then will I get a higher AQ score than someone who took a normal full course load in a humanities program, just took the basic prereqs for UBC, has no 0 credit courses, and also has a 90% GPA?
