  1. Result: Accepted Geography: OOP GPA: 4.0 MCAT: 519 Degree: Bachelor of Science (4th year) Interview: felt like I totally bombed the panel so was absolutely expecting a rejection. Congrats to all, will be declining in favor of UBC.
  2. Well, its official - May 10th. Going to be a nervy few weeks. May the odds be ever in your favour!
  3. Last year was April 12th (Thursday) so you are correct that it seems overdue. I wouldn't hold my breath until after the long weekend. To hazard a guess - Tuesday or Wednesday seems most likely.
  4. Timestamp: March 18th, 2019 1:29pm Interview: April 7 Result: Interview (MD) MCAT: 519 GPA: 3.95ish? not sure but in that range ECs: Pretty standard, there's one thing I do that really stands out and I've been doing forever, but other than that just tried to give an honest look at what enjoy - including things like fitness, intramurals and hiking and other little things. Essays: Spent maybe 3 days on them, proof-read by one friend, was not overly confident about them. Year: UG - 4th year Geography: OOP Had honestly accepted the L for U of T already since I didn't get invited to Queen's or Ottawa so definitely a pleasant surprise!
  5. Admission status: Proof of citizenship received AKA Accepted! Timestamp: 5:16 pm PST Proof of citizenship used: Canadian passport. Proof of citizenship status: received. Interview: Gave them a photocopy of my passport so pretty sure I nailed it. Can't wait to meet you all in August! /s
  6. Thanks! 4.0 and 519, ECs a mixed bag of some long term, high level things and some more or less filler.
  7. Just got the email! (OOP). At first I thought I had nothing but then remembered U of A has a separate email they send it to
  8. I think that is the key question here: we have evidence that the admissions process slightly favours females, however if we are confident that the process selects for the best doctors, should we care?
  9. Found it for those interested: https://journals.lww.com/academicmedicine/Fulltext/2017/06000/Are_Female_Applicants_Rated_Higher_Than_Males_on.46.aspx an interesting discussion about true differences in performance or perhaps the self-fulfilling prophecy...
  10. Interestingly, from listening to Dr. Walker's podcast at U of Calgary, he stated that they found women perform significantly better than men in the MMI format. I think he mentioned they published (or were going to publish) the data, I'll see if I can find it. Perhaps a more natural ability to express empathy?
  11. Anyone at Queen's interested in doing some MMI prep? Comment or PM me
