Result: waitlisted


GPA: 3.98 (OMSAS)


MCAT: 127/125/129/130 (CP/CARS/BS/PS)


ECs: Average, but fairly good more recently


Year: undergrad completed


Interview: Felt MMI stations were evenly divided between very good, average, and bombed. The panel also went well, but probably not the greatest in retrospect. 


 


As this was my only interview, I am not very confident about my chances. Getting ready to start studying for the MCAT again unfortunately. Back to the grind!

I thought I completely bombed the interview. The panel felt cold and for 2 stations, I was cut off due to time. I really thought I had no shot here because of the interview but I guess post-interview thoughts mean nothing. 


 


EDIT: have accepted my UofT offer instead. Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!
