  1. TIME STAMP : 11:05 Interview Invite or Regrets: Invite Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (i f applicable): 87 MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 509 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Honours Bsc. (2018) Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): I’m a completely non-trad applicant. I received several national scholarships out of high school, but had to postpone studies for many years due to a family illness. During that time I was a manager in the banking industry - people & project management - as well as a credit analyst. Medical volunteering (hospice, palliative) for 18yrs. Extended research project at BC Cancer Agency. Co-op and 2 NSERC’s. Project manager on a NCI funded project (pediatric cancer); attended AACR conference. Patient advocacy on a variety of provincial health steering committees and projects (mental health, privacy, MAiD). Guest lecturer and speaker at several health conferences. Trained chef, full-time volunteer cook in a homeless shelter for 6 months. Peer health counsellor, board member on national health foundation, studied opera for past 17yrs (some local competitions). I speak 3 languages and have travelled to 35+ countries. I also included my experience coming-out and caring for an ill family member.
  2. How on earth are we going to make in until May!?
  3. Oops... I see it’s posted on the website... https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/admissions/interviews/
  4. Does anyone have any insight on what the time slots are for interviews?
  5. @Lothrandir posted that they got an IP early deadline invite! Congrats! So it seems like things might be moving faster than expected...
  6. Thanks, not really though. I’m just stubborn as hell and I’ve lived through so much that I realize you really only do have one life to make it happen.
  7. For everyone who is not getting the news they wanted today ... I want to tell you a little bit more about me in the hopes that it will bolster your spirit to keep pushing forward. I was all set to apply in 2006, but a family member became very ill and I had to put my dreams on hold. I tried several times over the coming years to go back to school, but I couldn’t manage to juggle full time work and full time school. It wasn’t until I turned 30 that I decided to sell pretty much everything I had in order to head back to school. It has been far from an easy road, but I wouldn’t change it for anything! I’m definitely not the same person I was in 2006 and I appreciate every opportunity for the blessing that it is. I don’t know what this year has in store for me, but I do know that I’m a hell of a lot stronger than I thought I was. You will find that out about yourself too if you keep pushing ahead. Be kind to yourself right now and know that one (or even many) regret email, doesn’t define you in any way! Hugs to you all.
  8. Anyone else notice that OAS is kind of slow? I wonder if something is happening or it’s just overloaded from all of us checking
  9. Yes, I ran out earlier today as well! I had no idea.
  10. Yeah, but that’s too anxiety involking!
  11. @Neurophiliac - you crack me up!! I sure hope you get in... the whole class needs you to keep their mental health in check.
  12. Anyone else feel like their heart is going to stop every time they check OAS? *gulp*
  13. Seriously, don’t people have better things to do? When it comes to this whole process, you don’t think anyone would want to play with karma!
  14. Perhaps... I get why they space out the interview invites (as we have to book the MMI), but you would think they could just hit a button and all the decline emails would go out at once. I totally feel for those of you who have exams to write today. I know my brain would most certainly not be focusing very well!
