Accepted, IP

2nd year MSc

cGPA: 3.9

Not sure about wGPA, but I estimated it at around 3.96

Graduate GPA: 3.9

2nd year MSc

32M MCAT (12,10,10).

NSERC, OGS, and several other scholarships

Over 600 hours volunteering at a local hospital, volunteer trainer at several rehab programs on campus for patients with cancer or heart disease, a month internship at an overseas hospital, various student bodies and student support groups, tons of travel/ overseas volunteering in the Middle east.

 

Essays were good/okay. Spent around a week on them, and had several people proof read them for me.

 

Interview was short and informal, and totally unrelated to medicine; we spent most of the time talking about the war in middle east where i grew up. I had mixed feelings at the end of it.

 

Congratulations to all of you :)

GPA: 3.92

Essays: I got a few people to read through them and it went through several rounds of editing.

Interview: Didn't think it went well at all. I was done in 20-25 minutes, which made me very nervous....but it all worked out in the end, I guess!

 

Note to potential applicants and those still wait listed: If Medicine is your dream, don’t give up! These things have a funny way of working out and if you’re meant to be a physician, you’ll get in sooner or later. Keep working hard, stay focused and continue to develop your skills/resume. Always remember – the mountains are the means, the man is the end. The goal is not to reach the top of the mountain, but to improve the man.

Good luck to everyone waiting. For those interviewing end of March, the best advice I can give is be yourself. I used to roll my eyes when people told me this, but it really is true. I think I was able to portray my personality (good and bad) during the interviews. I wasn't afraid to laugh at myself, or make the interviewers laugh. Think of it as a first date :)

This is great and I don't know what I'd do if I didn't get in. I don't think I'd have it in me to go through this for a third time. To the young premeds reading this, it's an amazing feeling.

 

To those who were accepted, I look forward to meeting y'all.

To those on the waitlist, I wish you the best of luck.

For those less fortunate, I hope you continue to pursue what you deserve.
