  1. A little late because I'm abroad for research but.... First time applicant TIME STAMP: 11:56 PST, May 10 2019 RESULT: ACCEPTED VFMP (1st choice) GPA or AGPA (if applicable): about 85%; converted badly from my school but what can you do MCAT: 509 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Third year undergrad in Biomedical Sciences (honours) Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Nothing overly special? Worked in a lab for last summer (1 pub, 2 presentations (2nd author) but all after June 1st), Co-led a volunteer trip to work with Indigenous communities in the Yukon, worked at a program promoting post-secondary edu to Indigenous youth, campus tour guide, vice president and later president of two different clubs, then I put in some hobbies and other personal life events (DM for details). To be honest, a lot has changed in my life since completely the application so it's really hard to remember exactly what I put (ie, I'm also involved in student government now and I can't remember what it was like before then but that's not on there (RIP to all the people who interviewed at UofC while my face was plastered all over the campus)). Interview: Honestly, I walked out thinking I had bombed one station, was iffy about a few, and felt good (well, relatively) about the rest I suppose. But then I overanalyzed everything and thought I bombed it all. To prep, I really just got more experience talking to different people (see EC's), worked through a lot of the practice ones online and just thought about things I guess? I never truly formally practiced, more just talked to parents and friends a bit. In all honesty, I spent maybe 8 hours max prepping so I really don't understand the result Overall, I'm definitely still in shock. I keep thinking "oh yeah, when I'm applying next year I have to do xyz" and then remembering I'm not applying again next year is super weird. I honestly started the process with little to no hope for this cycle, and was aiming for at best maybe one interview. Needless to say, I'm really grateful for the results. I'm still not sure what my plan is, Calgary was my first choice but now I'm flip flopping and I'm really not sure if I should bother staying on the waitlist. I'm sort of leaning towards UBC though. To everyone who didn't get the news they wanted, it's truly UBC's loss. You all are fantastic individuals and you're going to go on to do amazing things. Everything happens for a reason. All the best in the future <3

    Proof of Citizenship

    Mine got updated last week! I uploaded mine early Feb or late Jan; I have a last name that's early in the alphabet, so maybe they're going based on last name! But who knows
  3. TIME STAMP: 10:09 PST Interview Invite or Regrets: Invite Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): about 85%; converted badly from my school but c'est la vie MCAT: 509 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): BHSc, Hon., Third year, Biomedical Sciences Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Nothing overly special? Worked in a lab for last summer (1 pub, 2 presentations (2nd author) but both after June 1st), Co-led a volunteer trip to work with Indigenous communities in the Yukon, worked at a program promoting post-secondary edu to Indigenous youth, campus tour guide, vice president and later president of two different clubs, then I put in some hobbies and other personal life events (DM for details). Honestly still in shock about this, especially after hearing so many more qualified people receiving regrets. It's truly UBC's loss, and I wish you all the best next year/at other schools. Good luck everyone <3

    Interview Invites date?

    For mine, I have an additional section as an Indigenous applicant, so they needed to autobook mine for that. I think it's something like that for PhD/MD too..?

    Interview Invites date?

    Mine was autobooked like @Nivo because I am an Indigenous applicant so I have another thing to do for that

    It says on the website that early invites get one more days notice, so by that logic yes!! Fingers crossed!
