  1. Personally, a friend of mine connected me with people he found on facebook. I practiced 4-5 times with different people every time and it helped in the sense that I was able to get feedback from people who did not know me at all and also just observing them when it was their turn to practice a scenario, I was able to pick up some behaviours/attitude to avoid during the interview as well as different ways of approaching a situation. But in my opinion, what prepared me the most for the interview was working in a call centre for 5+ years as I practiced how to deal with a wide range of people from all over the world and with diverse backgrounds/culture. I taught me how to quickly adapt to people, remain composed, caring and professional, and work with them to find a solution to their issues. Hope it helps.
  2. I'm honored. I kept reading posts like the one I did when I got rejected over the years and I had to give back to the community by sharing my story. It is not easy I know but you have the right attitude and mindset, and your turn to share your story is just around the corner.
  3. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. I see you are on the waitlist? Hope you have a good spot on there and soon enough, you'll get some great news. Ease your mind and know you did your very best at the interview.
  4. I just wanted to take the time to commend you on your resilience. I have read countless of posts over the years on this forum and I keep seeing your name here and there. Fingers crossed you get in and get to live your dream.
  5. TIME STAMP: 10:55 Result: Admitted with condition Pre-req GPA: 4.0 MCAT: Not submitted Feeling About MMI (please be mindful of NDA): First interview after facing many reject over the years. I felt good about 7-8 stations but was convinced I screwed up royally on 2-3 of them. But with time, I started doubting everything I did until today Year: 2nd undergrad finished in 2018 IP/OOP/International: IP Comments: To anyone reading this, it was my 6th time applying. After my first bachelor (with a disastrous GPA), I was even told by an advisor I could never get into med school. But I kept reading success stories on the forum about people who did a second bachelor and who got in. Thus I went down that road, which was not easy by any means, but it was all worth it. Do not get discouraged by getting a reject, keep improving yourself, do stuff that matters to you and which will show the adcoms how everyday you strive to become a better version of yourself and how big is your resolve to get into med school. Do not let a reject define who you are at the moment. You'll get in, I believe in that. It's just a matter of time. Congratulations to everyone who got in and for those on the waitlist, it's not easy to be patient but it will pay off.
