  1. Hi All! For those who are at UBC, any recommendation on which program to take to hopefully get into UBC med? I hear a lot of "don't take a hard program like biomed because you'll suffer" but also "take something your intersted in" and "anything that can get you a high GPA" I actually have a great interest in biology/anatomy/chemistry which is why I like medicine so much. Any advice on a BIO related program that is "easier" to get into and also not torturous to get a high GPA while also meeting prerequisites? I know its quite a tall order but any input from med or premed students would be appreciated! Cheers, Victor
  2. Hi everyone, Thought it may be helpful to start a thread for prospective UBC PharmD students applying to start the program in September 2019. The application deadline is January 15, 2019. More info can be found on: https://pharmsci.ubc.ca/programs/entry-practice-pharmd-degree If you have any questions/comments/discussion, please post below!
  3. Hey guys, I've always had my eye on UBC med and am now close to applying to a few med schools. I hear UBC has a strong in provence preference...is this true? Would I get an advantage if I just change my Ontario staus to BC with some govenerment paperwork lol or do you have to do your undergrad and live there as well? Be great to get some input from people who are from ontario based universities (anything to up my chances). Cheers, Victor
  4. Hi everyone, I am a prospective nursing student interested in applying to UBC's accelerated nursing program, and was wondering what your experiences have been like prior to applying to nursing school. I have been volunteering at a seniors' care home for the past 4.5+ years (it'll be almost 6 years during the time of my application), where I've assisted with feeding residents during mealtimes, help recreation staff with activities/games, and engage in one to one conversations with residents. Because of my extensive volunteer experience, I was able to get a part time job at another seniors' care home as a recreation/activity assistant. Here, I lead exercise programs and lead recreational programs independently. I am currently in the process of applying to become a Big Brother mentor/buddy so that I can expand my experience to children as well. Do you think that my current volunteer/work experience is sufficient and will be seen as "competitive" for admission to UBC's nursing program? Are there other things I should be involving myself with (certain organizations, groups of people, etc.)? Feel free to comment regardless of which university you attend - any and all information is valuable and will be very much appreciated! Thank you everyone!
  5. Hello, Does anyone know how many spots the UBC MOT waitlist typically moves? I tried searching this forum for information from past years, but so far no luck. If I find any info I'll be sure to update this post. Also for individuals who were waitlisted for UBC's MOT program in previous years, but then were offered a seat, what was your initial waitlist number? Thanks EDIT: Also, does anyone know if this information means that for 2017 intake, there were 365 applicants for the MOT program, admission offers were given to 66 individuals, and a total of 52 individuals were admitted, so then there was 66-52 = 14 people accepted off the waitlist? https://imgur.com/a/ga5Oa
  6. Sorry if I’m not supposed to post here! My UG is Psychology and my schools of interest don’t require prerequisites, has anyone been in a similar situation and self studied for the MCAT? how long did you give yourself? Did you study while in school? TIA
  7. Hello Everyone! Thought it would be ideal to start an official thread for prospective UBC PharmD students! Deadline for application: January 15th, 2018 Application Information: https://pharmsci.ubc.ca/programs/entry-practice-pharmd-degree If you have any questions/comments/discussion, add it below. Plenty of mostly-friendly UBC PharmD students (myself) and prospective PharmD students on this forum Cheers, CDuke93
  8. Hi Everyone, I just received my MMI invite for UBC's MPT program! I was wondering if anyone had any advice for UBC's MMI? (best ways to prepare, areas to focus on in preparation, etc.) Thanks in advance!
  9. Hey everyone! Has anyone heard back from UBC MOT yet? Usually, interview invites are sent about a week after MPT, but perhaps we need to wait another week Also, I heard that the interview is not a 3-person panel this year, but rather will be in MMI format. Is this true?
  10. Hey everyone! I have a question for current MPT students at UBC... Is it common for students to live on/near campus or do people typically commute? (it would be 2+ hours each day for me) Any help is greatly appreciated and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in the fall!
  11. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm definitely at a major crossroads... I've applied to UBC twice now and have been rejected both times. Have scored around a 28 NAQ both times, and 12 and 16 on AQ respectively. I knew I had to work on my grades after undergrad and so went back and did a masters and just finished an unclassified term. So now, I just got my grades back from doing the unclassified term at UBC. Even with those courses, and a masters degree (37 credits combined), my overall average minus my lowest year is only 82%. I did my BSc at UBC and unfortunately ended up with a 79% average overall, so that's really dragging me down. I scored 513 on the MCAT (128 CARS) but that doesn't seem to help my chances at any schools as my GPA excludes me from applying to most. I actually didn't apply to any other schools aside from UBC for the past two cycles I've been rejected. I did the math and looks like I'm going to do a whole other undergrad degree (or at least 120 credits at around 90%) in order to pull my grades up high enough to have a competitive AQ for UBC. However, I would not like to end up on the other side of that still being rejected from med school and no real career prospects. Because of this, I'm debating doing an accelerated nursing program at either UBC or U of C. Or, even possibly going to the University of Sydney for med. However, after reading through some of the forums here Australia doesn't seem like a good option. I'm wondering if anyone has any advice for me... I'd love to hear from anyone who managed to pull their grades up through nursing and got into med, or even moved to Alberta and got IP status. I'm hoping after nursing I would be competitive enough for IP at U of A or U of C (or maybe even decide to remain a nurse!) and hopefully, my MCAT will not be too old to use. Thanks!
  12. About how much/extensively if Term 1 material is tested on the PCTH 300/305 final exam? Is it memorizing the details from Term 1 again? Or is more about overlapping material between term 1 and 2? I'm willing to study everything to be prepared if needed but don't want to waste too time on term 1 if it's not needed. Thanks so much in advance!
  13. Creating this thread for anyone that has been waitlisted at UBC to update us on their status, or for anyone that is planning on dropping their spot to inform us
  14. My undergrad GPA, though it meets the cut-offs isn't competitive. However I have a very good MCAT (97th percentile). I've been thinking of taking additional undergrad courses to try to boost my GPA. I'm debating between UBC's unclassified courses and TRU-Open Learn. I have some questions. 1. Do you guys know if this is a good way to try to increase GPA or if there's a better way? 2. Does anyone have experience with either for the purpose of increasing GPA? Any specific courses I should take? 3. Would you recommend one over the other? Pros a/o cons of UBC unclassified? Pros a/o cons of TRU Open Learn? 4. General thoughts about either or both methods? Thanks.

  23. Hello, First time poster, here. I've been looking at the estimated timeline for the OT application process for various schools. It seems that UBC does everything much sooner than other schools. For instance, UBC does their interviews in March, while McGill does theirs in May. In only my wildest fantasies where I would have received an offer from both schools, would UBC even give me enough time to hold out for the response from McGill? How long does one typically get to respond to an offer of admission? Thanks for your time!
  24. Hey, If anyone is looking to practice for the MMI in Edmonton Alberta then let me know and we can meet up and practice together. My email is jsg@ualberta.ca or just PM me. Hope to hear from you guys soon! Thanks
