Recommended Posts

MCAT: Well above cutoffs. 
cGPA/2yr GPA: use 4.0 OMSAS Scale - I dont remember, mid 3.9x?

ECs: Broad and varied, but all fairly recent. No high school stuff, so there is hope for those of us who spent our high school years relaxing. 

Incredibly grateful and happy for another chance.

MCAT: 127/127/126/130

Current year: Finished undergrad in June 2019 and working on my MSc

EC: research (2 papers published in student journals), volunteering (long term care, accessibility centre), NICU shadowing, TA Assistant, tutoring, overseas observership, President of clubs at university (founded one of these), facilitated study group leader, doctor's office volunteer

Second time applying (consecutively). No interview invite so far in either cycle. Just waiting on UofT now - I wonder if its my MCAT or essays/ABS that holds me back
