  1. It's a black box but to give some perspective from the first time I applied, I had a 95% cGPA and my NAQ was super low at 17, but I got an interview.
  2. Hey! Don't stress!! The first time I applied, a bunch of my verifiers were contacted. The second time I applied (and was accepted), almost no one was contacted to my knowledge. I don't know the rhyme or reason but this isn't something to stress over It is also super early in the cycle, so I'm sure there are applications they haven't looked at yet, and therefore haven't contacted verifiers yet.
  3. Received my ranking today! 150/922 for OOP and made it to the pre-screen. 4.0 GPA, Casper good enough for Ottawa, pretty basic CV (just finished UG so not a ton of things on there...). Was accepted to other schools this cycle but posting for future reference for other applicants!
  4. Hey! UBC seems to care more about total score than any one section. As long as you meet the cutoffs, apply! 511 is good score and its definitely worth an application to see where you are at before taking the MCAT again. I know lots of people who have gotten in with lower overall scores.
  5. Result: Accepted SMP (first choice!) Geography: IP Early or Regular Deadline: Early Timestamp: 10:10 AM GPA: 95% EC's - pretty vanilla. A lot were hobbies and unconventional things like caring for family members with illnesses. Didn't have any crazy humanitarian work with 10,000 hours or anything. MCAT: 514 (126 CARS) Interview: Felt decent about it! Over-analyzed it for months afterwards though. Interviewed last year and was rejected. The difference from last year to this year is that I was so much more calm having been through the process before. Best advice is to relax and have fun with it. Don't feel like you need to answer with what you think they want to hear. Be yourself and let your personality shine. Also - I was a rural applicant. 4th year BSc. Honours Also accepted to U of T and waitlisted at Ottawa but I am taking UBC
  6. Thank you! No I didn't interview at Mac. Good luck!!!
  7. for sure! It was 7:41 AM. Not sure about it being down to the seconds haha
  8. Hey guys - just wanted to let you know I removed myself from the waitlist as I got into UBC! Good luck everyone!
  9. Thank you!!! I was rejected post-interview last year and got into two schools this year. To anyone not getting the news they hoped for today, I feel you and don't give up
  10. Hey!!! Just wanted to let you guys know that I will be declining my offer to U of T (MAM) as I got into UBC's Southern Medical Program which is my first choice. Hope someone gets good news ASAP
  11. Result: Accepted to MAM (6:59 AM PST) Geography: OOP GPA: 4.0 MCAT: 514 Degree: BSc. Honours (class of 2020) E.C: Varied. Honestly pretty vanilla. Didn't have much long term stuff other than hobbies. I think it is all how you talk about it. Put some unconventional stuff like family members with illness and how I'm trying to live a zero waste life. Essays: wrote them over the course of a few weeks and didn't have anyone read over (lol). Used them to tell a story - make them personal if you are looking for advice. Interview: In-person. Felt good about it! I felt better at my Ottawa interview and bad WL there so I wasn't sure how this would shake out. Best tip is to be yourself and use personal examples when answering questions. Congrats everyone!!!! And to those waitlisted or rejected, it'll happen! This is my second cycle and I was rejected post interview from UBC last year. Will accept unless I get into UBC (fingers crossed for tomorrow).
