  1. I poked through the forum to last year's first mention of the email, seems like they received it sometime in the 3rd week of June (?). Based on that I'd predict that the email will be coming this next week sometime... hopefully.
  2. 3 duplicate emails...? hope this is a one-time glitch or else my inbox is gonna get pretty confusing super quickly...
  3. Result: Accepted VFMP (1st choice) Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Timestamp: 11:56 am PST AGPA: 88% (exactly average for interviewees according to interim stats) MCAT: 521 (132/130/131/128) Year: BSc. 2018 (Hons.) Geography: IP ECs: Research (over 2 years of full time research experience, 2nd author of short publication, various posters), generic pre-med activities (hospital stuff), some personal hobbies (dancing). Overall feeling pretty middle of the pack considering everything I've read on these forums. Geography: IP Interview: First interview ever this year at UBC (and Queens). I must've done well despite feeling utterly meh, because my AQ and NAQ otherwise wouldn't have been sufficient (if reading these forums has given me any indication how talented the rest of y'all are)...
  4. My smartwatch just asked me if I was running cause of how high my heart rate is...
  5. Cumulative GPA: 3.8ish Last two years GPA: 3.9ish (UBC does percentages and Im not too confident on my conversion accuracy...) MCAT: 132/130/131/128 (RIP psych feeling okay on the other sections though) = 521 ECs: decent amount of research exp, some posters presentations, minimal awards, generic pre-med activities (hospital stuff), some personal hobbies (dancing). Overall feeling pretty middle of pack considering everything I've read on forums. Geography = OOP Hope that helps!
  6. Just got a call this morning (7am in BC, RIP time zones) asking me to come in for an interview! Blessed My heart sank after the rejection letter but that hope has officially been rekindled! Now to figure out how to prep for this thing with only 10 days of notice...
  7. Hi! Longtime lurker here (been one of them "guests" since 2014)! I finally created this account partly because I wanted to respond to your question with my personal experience Tl;DR is yes its possible. I increased my NAQ from a measly 17 to 24 in one year (2015/16-2016/17 cycles) without any major additions in terms of volunteering activities! I did this by optimizing the way I wrote my application (especially the EC parts) as well as adding in some additional hours over the course of the year (now that I think about it... the variation year-to-year probably contributed as well). IMO, how to write is as important as what to write. Don't give up! It's hard but I think it's definitely possible.
