Timestamp: 9:03 am May 8th 2018

cGPA: 3.84

MCAT: CARS 131

Casper: Went alright enough for me to get an interview OOP at U of A with it

MMI: This was a blur, I thought it was solid, but not like super impressive. I had to interview at U of A the next day so my memory is pretty hazy.

Still waiting on UBC's 1st round of offers but I am really stoked this was tied for my top choice with UBC's IMP!

Interview: Some stations were definitely difficult, other stations felt more okay. I think it's really difficult to gauge your own performance at interviews. Just tried my best and hoped for the best.

Don't give up hope, you may be next! Good luck everyone! :)

Result: Accepted off the waitlist, May 28th 3:19 PM, Hamilton Campus

cGPA: 3.9

CARS: 128

CASPer: Felt ALRIGHT, not great because I didn't get an interview from UOttawa but it felt decent. Spent about two weeks prepping after I handed in my OMSAS application with friends and did about two full-length tests from prep companies.

Interview: 5 stations felt REALLY good, 2 felt decent and the rest mediocre. I think it was very important for me to have a structure in my answers but also find a balance in having an answer that is free-flowing and connects to personal experiences!

Year: 3rd Year UG

Geography: IP

Honestly so grateful I can't even put my emotions into words! Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!

I am SO happy! I definitely thought it wasn't going to happen due to my lower stats, but here I am! I hope this gives some hope to others in a similar situation. :)

Interview: Felt like I did alright on two stations but felt awesome for the rest.

I ultimately decided to decline/retract my previous acceptance of this offer because I got off the waitlist at another school in my home province. Best of luck to everyone on the waitlist! Hope I freed up a spot someone wanted.

Result: Waitlist

Timestamp: 9:03 A.M on May 8th, 2018

cGPA: 3.87

CARS: 129

Interview: 3-4 good stations, 3 really messed up stations and the rest just okay. 

Year: Non-trad. Graduated 2012. 

Casper: Felt like I ran out of time on every question. 

Looking at the results of many applicants, it really pays off to apply to multiple schools! You never know what kind of candidates they are looking for! You could be a top candidate in one school or an auto reject in another! Spread your eggs in different baskets and your med school dreams will come true faster :)!

Congratulations to all those that got an offer!!

Accepted off Waitlist to Hamilton Campus!

cGPA: ~3.77

CARS: 127

Year: Gap Year working (Graduated 2017)

Casper: Thought I did okay! I'm a fairly fast typer so that probably helped. Must have gone well with my pretty low stats.

Interview: Didn't feel great about the first of couple stations, but eventually I calmed down and think I did decent on the others! 

Hopefully this encourages people with lower stats to still apply/have faith!!!

Accepted off Waitlist to Hamilton Campus!!!! 

Timestamp: June 20, 1:53pm

Geography: IP

cGPA: 3.95

CARS: 129

Year: 3

Casper: Felt alright about most prompts. Did not finish quite a few of my responses but I guess that was okay!

MMI: Pretty bimodal- had a couple great stations where I felt I really connected with the interviewer, and a couple that were just terrible, stone-faced responses, tough role-play. 

Honestly, I had given up this cycle and did not expect to receive an offer so late. To future applicants: there's still a chance even late into the year—you never know!!
