    McMaster Interview Invites/Regrets 2018

    For Macmaster interviews, do you get to pick your time/day?

    MMI prep course?

    Would you mind sharing the company that you are using?

    English Prereqs - Online Courses

    I’m doing mine through Athabasca and it seems fine—though a little mind-numbing. It’s a very clear set-up and the concise feedback I’ve gotten from the prof will make it easy to do well. I don’t have experience with Thompson. At the moment, the earliest that you could start your courses with Athabasca is Feb 1st. If you could start earlier with Thompson, it might be worth it?

    Opting out of Turnitin

    I would also love to know why someone would want to opt out of the Turnitin and if it would have deleterious effects on your application. Thank you!

    Same here! Looking forward to reading more on this thread!

    Interview Invites date?

    Thanks for the info! What about Ontario schools? Do they give numbers out with rejections?

    Interview Invites date?

    Thanks @Neurophiliac and @Gambinoooo !!! I just assumed that it would be mathematical in some way as the pre-interview scoring seemed quite systematic. This is my first application cycle so there is so much to learn! If you get rejected post-interview, do you get any metric on how you did in the interview?

    Hi! Could anyone explain to me how scores work after the interview process? Is there an interview score that is added to the TFR? Are the weighted equally? Thank you!

    Early MMI Practice in Toronto

    I’m interested as well! Live in Van but in Toronto for all January
  10. I’m working in Toronto for a lot of January. I would love to meet up with people on evenings to prep before my Feb 3rd interview. I’ll post this in some of the Ontario schools forums as well, but as they haven’t received interview invites yet, I thought I would start here.
  11. Yessss!!! Cheers to all the non-traditional applicants!
  12. Wooooo! TIME STAMP: 11:06 Interview Invite or Regrets: Invite Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): ~90 MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 513. 128/130/126/129 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): B.Sc Geography (IP/OOP): IP  Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Verrrrrrry non-traditional...2x Olympian, older applicant, lots of part-time years in my under grad. Full-ride academic scholarship for my undergrad, two 2nd author publications, leadership roles in international sport organizations, lots of volunteer hours for a few charities (helps to be old! Lots of time to do things!), a lot of diverse life and health experiences. I haven’t done any of the traditional ECs like hospital volunteering, working with seniors, club presidents, lab work. That might have set my application apart but I also feel like I need to add those things in this year, if I need to reapply.
  13. My lowest score is in the bio section, which feels silly as medicine is a biology profession. Should I re-take to improve my bio score? Is it weighted different than the other scores for certain schools? I didn’t take any biochem or much cell biology in my undergrad so I definitely feel that I could improve with more studying. 513: 128/130/126/129 (I’m sorry if this has been answered in other forums. I combed through to see if I could find any info but there’s a lot of threads in here!)
  14. First time poster—Thought I would finally get an account instead of just being a voyeur. Did anyone hear of any regrets sent out today?
