Queens Interview Invites/Regrets 2020

Recommended Posts

Status: Regrets
Time Stamp: 12:37
Location: IP
Stream: English/MD

MCAT: 130/127/130/131 - 518
cGPA: 3.63 and 2yr GPA: 3.81
Current year: Finished Master's

EC: Strongest part of my application imo, but I suppose I could be very wrong (was rejected from Western). Lots of research & employment. Student council positions and heavy involvement with campus clubs. Only a few volunteer activities, but they were things I was very passionate about. Ton of other ECs based on artistic interests, sports, etc.

Guess receiving low marks really does ruin you, even if they were 6+ years ago.

Stoked as always for those who got interviews - congratulations and best of luck!

MCAT: 507

ECs: The strongest part of my application; owner of 2 businesses, overseas shadowing in third world countries, lots of long term volunteering (3+ years), held 4 jobs all throughout undergrad and pretty varied, ROPSSAA badminton champion, and MVP alpine skiing, president of 2 clubs in university, regional piano and saxophone and ensemble trophies, 3 big research projects, 2 pubs as first and second author, poster presentations

Why are they doing this to us? :mad: 

I just wanna know. This is the only Ontario school left. 

Cause they just lost their admissions coordinator who was a GEM of a person to another job.
