Hello to all my fellow UBC Med applicants of 2018/2019! As we inch closer and closer to December, I decided to make this thread to just get it out of the way, and also to initiate discussion around how we are all feeling. As of now, I am not sure exactly when the updates will roll out. There are two options. Interview decisions will either be released the week of December 3rd or the week of December 10th. I'm going 70-30 on week of the 3rd since usually they release decisions the first week of December that involves a Monday. However, December 3rd may be too early; the admissions committee may want to look at a few things in more detail, finalize decisions, etc. which will require a bit more time – therefore, if it's not the week of the 3rd, it will definitely be the week of the 10th. Based on the pattern from the last few cycles, this is how I'm guessing decisions will be released: Week of December 3rd: Monday, December 3rd – Regrets Wednesday, December 5th – Early Invites Thursday, December 6th – Regular Invites OR Week of December 10th: Monday, December 10th – Regrets Wednesday, December 12th – Early Invites Thursday, December 13th – Regular Invites Whether we receive an interview invitation or rejection, I encourage everyone to write a post giving some description on what scores they've received, what sort of extracurricular activities they've completed/are still part of, what sort of achievements/awards/research they've accomplished, and so forth. This will essentially help yourself reflect on your application and help others down the line, both current and prospective applicants. At the end of the day, we will all hopefully be colleagues eventually – so, why not start now in helping each other. Let's stick with the format, described below, as much as possible when we are writing our posts. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - TIME STAMP: Interview Invite or Regrets: Early or Regular Deadline: GPA or AGPA (if applicable): MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Geography (IP/OOP): Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): NAQ: AQ: TFR: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - So, how's everyone feeling?? I'm nervous about the NAQ drops a bunch of people experienced last cycle! From what I've heard, lots of people had semi-to-significantly dropped in their NAQ score compared to 2 cycles ago, anywhere between 2-8 points drop in NAQ . Hopefully, things pan out for the better this year. Basically, it comes down to surviving that awful Monday! I get plenty of emails throughout the day... Every time I get that email notification sound on my phone, this will be my reaction:
