  1. I know UofA hasn't released any formal decision on how they will handle classes this fall, but can anyone speculate on whether the fall semester will be entirely online/remote learning or a mix of in-person and online learning? I'll be starting first year in August but am currently living in Calgary and trying to decide whether I should find a place to rent in Edmonton or save my money and stay in Calgary for the fall semester.
  2. Result: Invite! Geography: IP GPA: adjusted- 3.75, non-adjusted- 3.62 MCAT: 519 Degree: BSc 2019 E.C.: 4 research studentships with scholarships, mentored high-school research students, 4 conference abstracts, 1 lead authorship of a manuscript currently in review, volunteer coach of a U8 and U18 soccer team, 2 abroad volunteer experiences (1 medical, 1 not), best man at wedding, MC at wedding, long-term sports involvement. Other than research, I didn't have any special ECs. I just really tried to emphasize how each activity expanded my maturity and outlook on life. Interview: The virtual format definitely felt awkward for the first minute or so, but I soon calmed down and focused on making my answers feel like a conversation rather than a template script. It felt good at the end, but I definitely didn't think it would be much better than the average applicant. Thoughts: I definitely thought my GPA would keep me from receiving an acceptance! I hope this helps for those who have a below average GPA! As most med applicants, I didnt feel I was competitive enough to receive an acceptance letter, so this is quite a surprise and I feel incredibly fortunate
  3. Does anybody know of a group or want to start a group to prep for the MMI? I’ve previously been prepping with other non-pre med people and would like to do some last-minute practice with pre-med students to share/gain insights.
