  1. Do you know what your GPA converts to as a %? the minimum average you need in order to apply to UBC as an IP is 75%, so if you meet that criteria then definitely go for it!
  2. Hi, I was awarded an NSERC USRA from the UBC Faculty of Medicine, however, I was never able to work on my research project this summer because it was cancelled due to COVID. am I still able to list this on my application? How would I list it? thanks
  3. I just wanted to know if people have been admitted without taking the STRONGLY RECOMMENDED COURSES. I am not in a science degree but a Kinesiology degree so I haven’t taken any of these courses except for Biology and I want to know if that would prevent me from admission or hinder my chances. thanks!
  4. If you took at least 28 credits each year between Sept-April, you're eligible for wGPA.
  5. Is the writing station difficult? And if the writing station is your poorest station do they still drop it?
  6. do they let you know whether your interview was above average?
  7. Your MCAT score isn’t assessed competitively by UofT so the 518 doesn’t really help get you the acceptance, it ultimately depends on your GPA and ECs and your GPA is on the lower side of the accepted average.
  8. Hi everyone, Hope you are all doing well. Just wanted to ask for some advice regarding stats for the upcoming cycle and if there is anything I should look to improve on, I am just finishing up my 2nd year of Undergrad: In province applicant GPA: 4.17/4.33, roughly about 91.8% for UBC MCAT: Not written yet, not sure how it'll be looked at for the upcoming cycle ECs: NSERC USRA with UBC Faculty of Medicine, BCCHR Summer Research Studentship award (4 months), Student Research Position with UBC Digital Emergency Medicine (1 year), Student Research Position in Orthopedic Surgery at BC Childrens (3 months), Student Research Assistant at Uni working with children with FASD (3 months), Vice President of Circle K Club at Uni, Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentor (2+ years), Game On Mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters ( 3 months), eMentor for Indigenous students and students from rural communities (1 year), Peace Ambassador, Executive Member of STEM Fellowship Journal Editorial Board (1 year), Tutor at Uni, Employment for the past 4 years including being a Community Rec Leader, Student Ambassador at Uni, President's Entrance Scholarship at school, leadership award, Poster Presentation at Ottawa Conference, Poster Presentation at BC Children's, Poster Presentation at conference at Harvard, selected to attend Leadership conference in Bangkok, Thailand ... that's about all I can think of right now What do you guys think? I am hoping to apply this upcoming cycle at UBC just to see what my chances are
  9. What would you consider long-term? I dont have anything that is longer than 4 years unless I include stuff like playing basketball for fun for 8 years, travelling, employment (5 years), etc
  10. maybe they would consider activities like research as aptitude for science
  11. but UBC has no pre-reqs so why would they care about what you scored in a chemistry class?
  12. Hi everyone, I am wanting to know which MCAT prep course would help me best prepare for the MCAT. I am a Kinesiology student so I have taken tons of physiology/anatomy courses, and also an intro Biology course. I have not taken any chemistry's since high school where I took CHEM 11 and CHEM 12 and Physics 11. I have not taken Biochem, Physics, or Organic Chemistry either. Will it be possible to study for the MCAT without these courses and get a good score? Are there any Prep Courses out there that would help a student like me with content review?? Hoping to applying to UBC MED Thanks!
  13. Please keep us updated on your app! Would be interesting to know the outcome.
