    liuqiba reacted to Neurophiliac in D-DAY 2019 — Discussion Thread   
    Well well well, May 10th has officially been declared as this year’s UBC Med D-Day!
    I thought to start our discussion thread so the nerves and doubts and excitement can officially be discussed as we inch closer to the beginning of the end (for the cycle!) and possibly the beginning of a new beginning.
    Here’s our official live countdown:

    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!

    liuqiba reacted to Butterfly_ in Backup Plans   
    I haven’t worked as an EMR, but I’ve worked 6 years full time prior to entering medical school in investment banking and travel. I think full-time work experience teaches skills and allows for personal development that is different from what you can gain from being a student. School life is very different from work life. Plus when you work, you can earn some money and pay off school loans. If your goal is med school and you have great grades and interview invites already, I don’t think spending money on another master will improve your chances much. I’d rather work or take the year off to travel.

    liuqiba reacted to Snoop_doc123 in Interview Invites date?   
    Does anyone know whether all the regrets are sent out today? Meaning if you didn’t get a regret, then you will get an interview invite for sure? Or is it possible to get rejected anytime this week?

    That is from the U of C applicant manual, U of A does not score applications the same way.
