  1. If anyone has trouble, I'd recommend messaging one of the admins so they can add you!
  2. I have decided to decline UofC in favor of UofA! Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!
  3. I had to choose between U of A and U of C this year, and I made a pretty comprehensive excel sheet comparing the two! This was created from over 20+ hours of conversations with students (past and present) from both schools and with attending physicians, a thorough look at each program's curriculum and stats, and the personal factors (e.g. friends and family) that I had to consider. If anyone wants to look at this excel sheet for reference or wants to chat, send me a message! Both schools are overall FANTASTIC and you won't go wrong with your choice if you trust your gut! I'm hoping this will help other people who have to make this decision, just keep in mind that what may be a pro for me might be a con for you and vice versa--it truly all depends on what you value. Good luck!

  6. Result: ACCEPTED!!! AHHH!!! Geography: IP GPA: 3.90 MCAT: 513 (128 CARS) Degree: First: BFA in Drama; Second: BA (Honours) in Psychology E.C: Volunteer for the Distress Center, research assistant volunteering in 2 labs while doing my psych degree, peer leader at UofC during my psych degree, volunteer at the children's hospital, three jobs (1 at the children's hospital in research, 1 doing drama with queer youth in the community, 1 as a standardized patient), lots of experience doing drama-related things, lots of travel. Also wrote about overcoming some experiences of personal adversity, and spoke about a few of my hobbies. Interview: While it was happening I thought it went pretty well! Afterwards I ruminated on every detail and wanted to turn back the clock to expand on my answers. I mostly felt that during the MMI. I felt really comfortable during the panel interviews and the group activity! I practiced a lot for the MMI with family and friends, and tried to familiarize myself with some common ethical issues or hot topics in medicine. Thoughts: I'm stunned and thrilled! I'm a first time applicant and I never expected to get in this year! I also received an acceptance from the UofA so in the next week I am going to decide which school is the best fit for me and my life. I'm 28, married, and have lots to consider!

I thought I was myself and showed a passion for medicine. Thoughts: I'm shocked. I'm a first time applicant and I never expected to get in this year!
  8. I think it will be Wednesday! A few of my verifiers were also contacted and they were given until end of day on May 12th to respond.
