Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)

Recommended Posts

Accepted off the waitlist today to Niagara campus

Timestamp: May 30 @ 9:53AM

 

GPA: 3.7

MCAT VR: 11

Interview: It was a fun experience. I think that I did well at some stations but there were definitely a few that didn't go well (like a typical MMI).

 

To those still waiting: I understand the disappointment, fear, & anxiety that these weeks have felt like. Waiting is hard and not natural - but perseverance will build character (a trait of a great physician). I hope next year (whatever it may hold for you) goes well for you.

Accepted May. 15th.

Declined right after I found out. To be honest, I really didn't like Mac at the interview. I found everything to be very disorganized and I didn't connect with the faculty. I am attending U of A in the fall. Just thought I would add my stats to the collection...

EC: I don't think it really matters for McMaster
