  1. Result: Accepted - St. George cGPA: 3.95 wGPA: 3.99 MCAT: 509 (125/128/128/128) ECs: Lots of research (2 first author, 2 coauthors pubs, NSERC, posters, invited speaker, etc.), and a good balance of other activities with leadership, employment, etc. I also felt like I had 2 very strong LoR and one average to strong LoR. Essays: I wrote them during an all nighter the day before applications were due so I wasn't expecting much. However, I did go back and reread them, and maybe due to the time crunch, I can tell I answered the questions while being true to myself, so perhaps that helped. I didn't have anyone review them. Interview: My favourite interview by far! I felt like I was able to be myself and made some genuine connections with 3 of the interviewers. I felt 3 stations went great and 1 was average. Year: 4th Geography: IP I will be accepting my offer and am looking forwarded to meeting everyone! Good luck and don't give up if things don't go your way this year!

Year: 4th Geography: IP TBH at this point in the cycle I was expecting a rejection! Good luck to everyone else, and don't let a low score on one section of your MCAT discourage you from applying!
  5. Did anyone have an experience in the panel where they felt like the interviewers were being rather hostile, cutting you off half way through your answers, etc.? Based on the questions I got, I was really unsure of what they were trying to evaluate.
  6. I think they corrected the date for signing up for your interview in the second one.

  9. Hi all, I'm wondering what the individual section cut-offs have been for the MCAT in the past. I know this is not entirely known, and I have browsed the interview invite feeds, but if one has a good GPA (3.99), would you still get screened out with a 509 (125/128/128/128)? Thanks for the help!
