Result: Waitlist
Time stamp: 9:30 AM May 9
cGPA: 3.81
MCAT: 130/129/130/130
ECs: Average, I think. 3 research courses, and a poster presentation + award. ~550 hours combined hospital and first aid volunteering.
Interview: Only felt like I did well on one MMI station, average on a few others, and badly on two. Felt good about the panel immediately afterwards, but questioned a lot of it as time passed.

Will be removing myself from the waitlist to accept Western's offer, hopefully this can help someone out there. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

late to post…

 
Result: Accepted
Time stamp: 8:59am May 9th
cGPA: 3.90
Year: graduated UG
MCAT: 516 (127 CARS)
EC: Lots of community volunteering, research, and other things like sports and travel
Interview: MMI was ok- some stations went well, a couple were not the best. Panel felt good.
 
Still deciding whether to accept.
 
I interviewed at Queens last year, was waitlisted and didn't get in. Hang in there if you’re on the waitlist; there is still hope and if it’s not your year keep trying! I met a lot of med students at the interview who had applied multiple times before being accepted.

Hey! Our GPAs and MCATs seem very very similar! My overall MCAT is 513 with 126 CARS. Could I please ask you about your MCAT scores for the science sections? I also have a 126 in one of the science sections and not sure if they will be okay with two 126 scores (though my other two scores are 130 and 131).
