MCAT: 515 (129/125/132/129)
cGPA/2yr GPA: 3.83
Current year: MSc completed in 2018, BSc in 2015, working full-time now
ECs: A variety of research in undergrad and grad school (some volunteering, some in school, and some while employed as an RA); a few conference abstracts, but no papers published; >900 hours of hospital volunteering, minimal club involvement, but some competitions (my ECs were a little lacking); supervising undergraduate students, etc.

This sucks, but my GPA is lower along with my CARS and my ECs are lacking a bit. Congrats to all the invitees!

Status: Invite off waitlist following regrets
Time Stamp: 10/02/2020 - phone call @ 10:40 AM EST

Stream: English

MCAT: 519 (128/129/130/132)
cGPA/2yr GPA: 2-yr GPA ~3.9
Current year: Completed masters and second undergrad
ECs: Lots of things over the years, y'all already know what you need to do.  I think getting a publication for this cycle with another in the works and working in a clinical role at a high profile institution right now probably helped. 

Needless to say I'm very excited! I didn't expect to be called off the waitlist at all and didn't even know there was one.  This is my first time posting to a thread like this but wanted to so that others can see that there is an interview waitlist and people are being called off of it.

There is hope for us with low MCAT and GPAs! :)

Are you Aboriginal, French, military or rural? This seems pretty low with regards to city offs

What are people's thoughts on the MCAT cutoffs this round? I had 125 in c/p but 127+ in everything else, decent GPA & strong ECs. I thought I got a reject from not meeting the c/p cutoff but it looks like there were a few with 125 in that section that got an interview. any guesses?? :D

It was most likely your EC's/Refs, I don't think your MCAT is below cutoffs.
