  1. Oops nevermind, I scrolled down to the bottom of the email and found the very helpful instructions!
  2. So does anyone know how to use Zoom and how to actually start our interview tomorrow? I wasn't able to attend the event tonight, so I didn't get a test run. I have downloaded Zoom and made an account using my @uAlberta email but I'm not sure of I need to do anything else or whether it will all be fairly self-explanatory tomorrow...
  3. Really appreciate all the advice--thank you! ... now just have to wait for uAlberta invites/regrets to go out. Good luck everyone!
  4. Hi everyone! I'm coming from out of province and I'm trying to figure out what the best plan is if I happen to be fortunate enough to get an interview at uAlberta in addition to my Calgary interview (this may be a total moot point if there is no uAlberta interview in the cards for me, but here's hoping lol). Would it be reasonable to try to schedule one interview for the Saturday and one for the Sunday and drive from Calgary to Edmonton on the Saturday evening? Or am I better off trying to schedule two separate weekends and flying to Alberta twice? Travel cost is definitely a big consideration for me, but also if it's going to be way too stressful to try and pack it all into one weekend, or if there's a risk that weather or something could disrupt my driving plans, then I will make two trips to Alberta work. Thanks for everyone's input!
  5. TIME STAMP: 13:08 PST Interview Date: TBD Result: Invite wGPA: 3.97 MCAT: 524, 132 CARS ECs: Pretty diverse I think: Several years of work experience in various non-profits, working in a couple different marginalized communities; Some research, but no publications; some challenging personal circumstances; over a decade of public speaking/advocacy/education work; running a youth group; a few hobbies thrown in for good measure! Year: BA - Nov, 2018 Geography : OOP
  6. If anyone is still waiting on their GPA, mine was finally updated today so it seems like they are processing them, slowly but surely!
  7. I emailed MD admissions on Monday to inquire about my GPA still not being posted. They replied saying: "It appears we have everything we need; your application is in queue to be reviewed". I just checked and my GPA is still not up so it seems like the Jan 2nd date that they posted was a pretty soft deadline.
  8. Time Stamp: Jan 8, 2020 06:14 AM Invite/Reject: Waitlisted GPA: 3.92 CARS: 132 Casper: Evidently my Casper was weak -- I knew it was going to be a struggle for me because I'm not a very speedy typist (or written communicator in general tbh). I felt good about the responses that I did write, but I only managed to answer 1-2 qs for almost every prompt. Geography: OOP
  9. So does anyone else still not have their GPA posted? I'm hoping it's going to pop up tomorrow, but it seems a bit strange that it would take this long. My transcripts have been in since September, and my Bear Tracks doesn't show any outstanding items.
