Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)

Recommended Posts

So I'm a MB resident (non-rural) with a B.Sc in Microbiology and a 3-year B.A.

 

AGPA: 4.3

MCAT: 32R (VR-10, PS-11, BS-11)

 

I'm heavily involved in volunteering with human rights and social justice groups. Also, I've been involved in research the past 2.5 years. Both of these came up a number of times in my interview.

 

This is my second year applying. I was in the second part of the waitlist last year. I have only applied to the University of Manitoba for medical school (other universities for grad school). I will most likely be accepting.

I am very happy as I post this. I hope you all get a chance to read 'offer of admission' on an email subject line from some school. It is a really nice thing.

 

Anyway, these posts helped me gauge my chances, so I will do my part...

I guess I neglected to post about my interview. I prepared a bit more this time by taking part in mock interviews and reading up on the Canadian health care system before. For the actual interview, I felt like I did great on some stations and absolutely terrible for others. I had one station where the interviewer basically talked the whole time trying to explain what they thought the question meant, and I had another station where I had to go to the bathroom right before so I had to just walk in there without reading the question first. I guess I did really well on some of the other stations or something.

Oops, almost forgot about posting this :o.

 

Accepted, 4th year OOP (BC).

aGPA: ~4.1

MCAT: 12BS/11VR/13PS/S

Fairly average ECs.

 

Felt confident during the interview. I had the UBC MMI a month earlier, so it helped being familiar with the format of the interview. Did not use the notepad to take notes at all, as I felt that they would actually hinder me instead of help during the stations. Struggled a bit with the writing section (10 minutes is far too limiting to write a decent composition, in my opinion).

 

I have declined this offer in favour of a position at UBC. Good luck to those still waiting!
