  1. Says “around May 12” but hopefully either then or earlier.
  2. I don't believe so. They only release the overall average MCAT of accepted vs rejected
  3. Those are all things that are important to include. ECs are a way for them to get to know you as a whole. When thinking of ECs try and include things that are not only traditional premed activities.
  4. You can include family if they're the only ones that can verify something. I personally did this and it wasn't an issue.
  5. Honestly I wouldn't judge PBL before you try it. For us at UBC, CBL is a super critical part of the curriculum and is honestly such a great way to focus on clinical judgement as well as review the material you see in lecture (plus you make friends!) Based on what you said, I would choose a place that makes you the happiest and that you are comfortable attending, it seems like Mac may be a good option but you gotta decide for yourself. Good luck!
  6. I'm gonna have to say that a 3.8 GPA is still competitive. That being said, it depends on the school and their admissions criteria/evaluation method. Also lots of schools use a weighted GPA so make sure to do your research before you apply.
  7. I think you should include this in your ABS section if you have space and if you feel like it is really significant. I personally felt that there were personal experiences that were important to me that I wanted to include in my ABS when I applied and I think it gave a better representation of my experiences as a whole.
  8. Based on those stats you got this! Just focus a summer on the MCAT and make sure you're continuing to stay involved in extracurriculars and you should be fine! I had a really similar GPA when I applied through OMSAS and got multiple interviews. I think once your GPA is above a 3.8, other things like ECs and LORs matter more.
  9. I also thought UBC was my worst interview and it was the one school I got into without waitlist so I wouldn’t overthink it
  10. Just remember to be yourself, smile, and have a genuine convo with the interviewer (have fun!) Just don’t forget that you need to approach the prompts from multiple viewpoints to do well
  11. Generally if you survive the first day you are safe but apparently it still is possible to be rejected later in the week. Nobody really knows until you get the email.
  12. Last year the email came out a week before invites (Dec 5th email and invites came out the following week). I wouldn’t expect any emails until December tbh.
