  1. Result: Accepted Geography: OOP GPA: 4.0 MCAT: 517 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: 517 (131/128/128/130) 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

    Thanks! 4.0 and 517, ECs a mixed bag of some long term, high level things and some more or less filler.

    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

    More females than males in medicine?

    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. Uploaded mine a week ago, still says not received

    More females than males in medicine?

    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...

    More females than males in medicine?

    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?
