  1. I know someone who did. I'm not sure how many get into the London campus off the high waitlist, but it does seem based off of last years waitlist thread that a majority end up going to Windsor.
  2. Result: ACCEPTED! (London) - will be accepting Timestamp: 12:00 on student center 2-year GPA: 3.82 MCAT: 127/129/128 Interview: Online - Felt okay initially but kept second guessing all my answers in the weeks leading up to May 12th Year: Graduated this year, 5th year Geography: Non-SWOMEN Feeling so shocked and overwhelmed with happiness. As someone who went from a 3.3 and 2.8 GPA in my first and second year, to getting accepted with only one interview, it is possible to turn things around! Looking forward to meeting everyone!
  3. What do people mean when they say they "connected well" with their panel? Does that mean they responded positively to your answers?
  4. You'll be fine. One bad semester wont harm your chances much, and you've already improved significantly since then (great job by the way). Lots of schools have wGPA schemes that will help you. Even if you ignore those, if you can to maintain a 3.95 GPA for the rest of your undergrad, you'll end up with a 3.9, and be in a great position GPA wise. Keep doing what you're doing as its obviously working and you'll be fine!
  5. I remember last year there was apparently a written portion to the interview. I didn't see anything about it in this years email so I was wondering if it was removed from the interview process, and its just the panel interview now?
  6. Will you only be doing MMI prep or panel-style prep as well? I'm interested but I only have 1 interview and its going to be 45 min panel-style. Not sure if MMI prep will be helpful for me or not, this is my first interview. If you or anyone else has any insight please let me know.
  7. Status: Rejection Time Stamp: 12:37 Location: IP Stream: English MD MCAT: 516 (131/127/128/130) cGPA/2yr GPA: 3.82 (2yr) Current year: 5th year undergraduate ECs: Pretty run of the mill. Hospital volunteering, tutoring, 1 poster abstract, music, handful of hobbies. Pretty expected based off my GPA and ECs Congratulations to everyone who received an interview. Best of luck!
  8. MCAT is assessed as a cutoff pre-interview so there's no real competitive or non-competitive score. May or may not be used competitively post-interview, but no one knows for sure. If the CARS cutoff remains at 127 then you should be good MCAT-wise; but keep in mind the cutoff isn't stable and may go back up to 128 so its not guaranteed. Best of luck!
  9. No need to speculate. Western states pre-interview, GPA and MCAT are assessed purely as a cutoff. 3.7, 498 (just meeting cutoffs) is equivalent to 4.0, 528. Past that point, its only your essays that matter. https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/med_dent_admissions/medicine/admission_requirements.html
  10. Time Stamp: 10:03 AM Invite/reject: INVITE!!! SOO EXCITED!!! IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.82 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 127/129/128/128 Essays (X/8): 8/8, no About you section, repeated 1 activity once. Worked on them for a few weeks and edited them a lot. EC's are pretty average, but I think I wrote them well. I also tried to be very specific and give concrete examples of the things I learned in each activity rather than just stating it and moving on to how it would be applicable to medicine. Congrats to everyone else who received an interview
  11. Could you add a section for the MCAT to the template?
  12. Yours would be rounded to 3.72 I'm pretty sure
  13. We don't know exactly what the cutoff is, but if you look at past interview invite and acceptance threads, the lowest accepted total score is usually ~508 I think
