  1. Hey guys, I was wondering if it is appropriate for the Diversity of experience section to put down how I've grown up in a relatively low-income (lower middle class) household, with my dad having to work 7 days a week (as long as 18 hours), because my mom can't work as my sister suffers from a disability.
  2. Hey, I think it says somewhere on the UBC MD website that putting P/F for the English prerequisite (or any course for that matter) puts you at a disadvantage for the application, so I'd advise you not to
  3. @Neurophiliac I know that UBC Med specifically looks at the commitment level for each entry, but is a one-year commitment considered too little in the eyes of the adcom? Although I do have long term commitments, some of my experiences were in duration for only a year. Is this a detriment to my application?
  4. Thank you so much for your input. Pursuing medicine has been my dream for as long as I can remember, and I will for sure be applying this cycle just to see where I am at. Although I have been working hard to be competitive, its just the thought of not getting an interview after putting in a lot of work in that's making me hesitant to apply, but with your advice I'll probably give it a shot.
  5. I'm a 3rd year UG that is still debating on whether to apply for the MED 2024 cycle, however I'm in a bit of a dilemma because I still feel that my NAQ portion of the application is not enough to meet interview cutoffs. My stats are the following cGPA: 90.5% Extracurriculars: Founder and President of a Community Non-Profit (Public Health Related) (1 year so far) Employed Pharmacy Assistant at a Local Pharmacy (8 hours every week since January 2017) Summer Research Student at the Centre for Blood Research at UBC (Winner of a $5000 scholarship) Research Student and Assistant at BC Children's Hospital Executive at two Clubs Volunteer Auxiliary at a Hospital 1-on-1 peer and FAMILY volunteer with patients at a Children's Hospice Co-caregiver of a Family member suffering from paralysis 2x Deans Honours List/Science Scholar Designation Scholarships (Mostly from Highschool, some from university) and a bunch of awards from Science fairs I know this question is pretty annoying, but do you think I realistically have a chance in getting an invite with my current ECs and GPA (provided my application is strategically and properly written)? I am also in the process of getting published next year so do you think I should wait until that happens before I apply?
