  1. My university (UBC) isn't currently issuing paper transcripts due to covid. Does anyone know if OMSAS accepts electronic transcripts sent directly from UBC to them?
  2. Spend some time browsing the subreddit r/mcat. There are TONS of resources on this site. Buy ALL the AAMC online prep material. It's pretty much essential to doing well on the exam. UWorld is probably the best non-AAMC prep material out there. It's extremely expensive, but well worth it if this is a possibility for you. Most people use the Kaplan prep books. I used Examkrackers and loved them because they were short and sweet (I have a science background so I didn't need super detailed explanations). JW (Jack W3stin) daily passages are a good free resource for CARS. Khan Academy also has a bunch of free CARS passages. There are also some pdfs of the Examkrackers 101 CARS passages and The Princeton Review CARS workbooks floating around the internet- these were a great resource as well! Prep courses are NOT worth it. Just make sure you discipline yourself- make and stick to a study schedule. Khan Academy videos are a great free resource and they have a partnership with the AAMC so you can trust their material to be relevant to the real MCAT.
  3. What do you mean "tolerate"? What's wrong with family med? Serious question, I'm a future applicant just lurking threads.
  4. Thanks everyone! I've sent admissions an email and I'll update this thread when they get back to me for anyone else in a similar position
  5. Thanks, I'll email them. I'm a UBC student so I get my grades as percentages, not letters. Do you think there is still a conversion involved?
  6. I am OOP. My UAA is 84.70. Any chance this would get rounded up or am I ineligible to apply?
  7. Hm interesting, I wonder if this will apply to med as well. Would be really unfortunate if this affected lowest year drops, as that's the only thing giving me a chance currently.
  8. If I put something in my NAQ and check the course credit received box, will it count toward my AQ or NAQ?
  9. TIME STAMP: 1:31 pm Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): 82.5 (not eligible for AGPA) MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 515 (129/127/128/131) Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): 4th year BSc Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Residence Advisor for 1 year, Lifeguard/Swim Instructor for 5 years, orientation leader for 2 years, club president for 2 years, homeless shelter volunteer for 1 summer (70 hours), volunteering with people who use drugs for 1 year (125 hours), hospital volunteer for 2 years (120 hours), engineering design team for 1 year (70 hours), self-initiated research project for 1 school year (50 hours), 3 summer research internships (~200 hours each), hobbies (hiking, travel, piano, competitive swimming), some high school activities, some high school scholarships, left research section blank because no pubs, no high performance activities. NAQ Range: 50-74.99 percentile My Result: So I was super extra and measured the distance of the IP cutoff mark and my mark on the graph with a ruler... From my measurements, the IP cutoff bar was around 52 and my bar was around 46. *Edit: right clicked on the image and hit inspect and the source code confirmed that my numbers were correct! OOP cutoff was 63.* This was my first time applying so it's nice to see where I stand! Wasn't expecting an invite with my low GPA and the incredible stats this year, so I'm not too bummed. So excited to drop my disastrous 2nd year next application cycle. Good luck to the rest of you!
  10. Yes, will do as soon as I can get access to my scores. Refreshing like mad right now!
