Hi all,

 

Here's a quick questionnaire regarding the admissions process at Memorial. We ran this questionnaire last year, and I'd like to keep it going on an annual basis so we can generate some profiles of applicants who have been accepted, rejected, or placed on a waitlist for each school. If you are applying this year, please take a few minutes to fill out the below questions. :)

 

Please keep all replies focussed as answers to the below; I will delete any non-answers in this thread. If you have any questions, please start a new thread so that this one stays on topic. Please check out the big thread in the General Premed Forum as well to let us know which schools accepted you, and which ones waitlisted you or rejected you: pub125.ezboard.com/fpremed101frm0.showMessage?topicID=648.topic

 

If you can copy and paste the below form, and fill it out, that'd be awesome. If you want to contribute your GPA and MCAT stats in addition, that's great too. :)

 

------

 

I'm a (Province) resident in (undergraduate or graduate) studies. My GPA was (XYZ) and my MCAT scores were:

 

Physical Sciences: (x)

Verbal: (y)

Biological Sciences: (z)

Written Sample: (z)

 

I was (accepted/rejected/waitlisted) by Memorial. This is my (first/second/third/more than third) time applying to this school.

 

Of all the schools I applied to, I'd like to attend (XYZ Med School) as my first choice.

 

------

I'm a NF resident in undergraduate studies (arts).

 

Rejected at: Memorial

 

I've only applied to Memorial (first time applying). MCAT: a mere 20S, since I wrote it under very personally trying conditions, but my GPA is high and my ec's are quite good. My interviewer was very sarcastic and condescending and clearly did not like me upon first sight. She didn't even introduce herself nor acknowledge my existence when I shook her hand to introduce myself. Since I am a relatively timid person, I was taken aback. She had her eyes closed for most of the interview and only opened them to make a snotty comment. The whole experience was very upsetting, because I would like to think that I am a very genuine, likeable, well-rounded person. It came to the point where the other interviewer had to cut her off from any further comments. Anyhoo, I'll write the mcats again this summer, hoping to do much better, and I'll hope for a more professional interviewer next year.

Trudy,

I'm so sorry to hear of your bad experience!! How disappointing it must be to be faced with an interviewer like that. I just want to tell you that there is hope. My interviewers were very personable and genuine. Apply again and the best of luck to you!

Cheers!

d77mah,

 

Sorry to hear about the news... those are some very solid stats though! I hope you get some good news from one of the other schools you applied to!

 

If you don't mind me asking, what is your province of residency?

 

-Steve

 

 

Also, to everyone else who's posted on this thread - it'd be very helpful if you included your home province.. (if you could edit your posts and include that info it'd be much appreciated!)
