Result: Wait List
Program: MD
wGPA: above cutoffs

Year: Graduated

Geography: non-SWOMEN

 

I want to cry. Is there a "High/Good Wait List" status this year or is it just "Wait List"? Is there really no way to find out how much of a chance we have?

Result: Accepted to London campus

Program: MD

wGPA: above cutoff

MCAT: above cutoff (non-swomen)

Interview: I had no idea. I had prepared a lot, but some of the questions were challenging and I was unsure of how well I had answered. I've interviewed for many jobs in the past, which I think probably at least helped me stay collected. 

 

Will be accepting.

Interview: thought it went pretty well. there were things I wished i mentioned once the interview ended, but for the most part, I don't think it could have gone any better.

 

This is an amazing moment for me. I'll be posting my full story on the "2nd degree forum" once I let this sink in.

Accepted (unspecified campus)
wGPA: 3.99 (I think? Too many wGPA's to keep track of)
MCAT: 12/11/15
Interview: Hard to say, but I guess it went well? Interviewers were responsive and seemed interested/engaged in discussion with me, I made them laugh a few times, etc. At the very least I managed to get through it without saying anything idiotic.
Geography: OOP

Will be declining in favour of UofA. Hopefully this helps some waitlisters out. Congrats to all that were accepted.

Result: Low waitlist 


Program: MD


wGPA: 3.75


MCAT: 10/11/11 (swomen) 


Interview: Felt really good but apparently was not enough. 


 


Feel blindsided. Yes I don't have to best stats but I felt that my interview was strong. Why bother even interview me if GPA and MCAT were going to screw me in the end. 


 


Feeling super frustrated...

Accepted to London


GPA:  3.94 (I think, going by the "two best year"s thing)


MCAT(PS/VR/BS): 14/11/12


ECs: Meh. Decent, w/ volunteering, a writing grant, musician stuff, but otherwise not stellar.


Year: Finished undergrad last year.


SWOMEN: Nope


Interview: Thought it went terrible. Maybe only shined on a few questions, but on the way out I really felt like I didn't show them who I am. Felt like garbage, and watched the MMI video with impending doom. I kind of swung from that to "pretty good" and back and forth after that.


 


Imagine my surprise. I was so convinced I was definitely out, especially because I got mid-waitlisted last year. Absolute shocker.

Result: Good waitlist i think - "In recent years, applicants in your position on the Wait List have received an offer of admission."


Program: MD


Year: just finished 4 year UG


2-year GPA: 3.84 --> question. they want you to send in your transcript with your final grades. does that mean that they will take your most recent year into account? thatd be fab bc i finished this year with a 3.97 which boosts me a lot obviously. Ive been worried about my GPA. 


MCAT (PS/VR/BS): 10/11/11


SWOMEN: yep


Interview: felt really good, did a lot of prep.

Result: Accepted - London campus

Program : MD
Year: Finishing Masters
GPA: 3.89
2-year GPA: 3.94
MCAT: 12/11/12

SWOMEN: No

 

ECs: Pretty good (5 years hospital volunteer; limited leadership roles in academic club, mentorship club, and social/cultural club; lots of extracurricular activities in dance and music; research assistant during undergrad; CIHR scholarship for 1st year of masters)

 

Interview: Excellent rapport. Very comfortable and conversational with lots of smiling and joking. Really struggled with some situational questions in the middle (one of the questions I couldn't answer at all), but for the interview on the whole I communicated a clear focus, maturity, and enthusiasm (I think). I think I started strong and ended strong even though the middle was terrible.

I did my undergrad and masters at Western and I will finally be doing med school here too! :)
