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

Recommended Posts

Wow was I the only reject?? Oh well I guess I will post for the purpose of stats 

 

Rejected :(
Time: 8:25am
GPA: 3.78
CARS: 128
Interview: Honestly I didn't think it went that poorly and I usually gauge my performance pretty accurately but I guess I was wrong. Looking back I think I felt kind of thrown into it and maybe it took too long for me to get into a good groove or whatever. I'm kinda shocked that I wasn't even thrown a waitlist but what can you do...

Recently completed second undergrad

 

 

For the non-traditionals out there I hope my post provides you with some hope. I went the second undergrad route and was accepted into my top 2 choices. It is definitely a bit of a gamble to go back to school, but in my case it has been 100% worth the time, effort, debt (lol) and hard work.

Posting for Completeness...

Result: Rejected

cGPA : 3.82

MCAT = 514 (129/127/130/128)

Interview Date: February 28th (?)

Interview Feelings: I thought it was decent actually...only second to U of T and on par with Queens. U of A and much better than my U of C interview...

ECs: fairly extensive, varied and extremely applicable to medicine, pm for details

Year: Graduated 2014, Non-Trad Allied healthcare professional

What went wrong? I'm guessing my low CARS score and lower end GPA 3.82 and CASPER not being considered in the weighing (70% interview) just means that my interview was mediocre at best and those with similar interview schools but better stats prevailed. All in all, based on what McMaster looks for, I guess I am not their ideal candidate.

This was my top choice and not seeing it pan out stung...my girlfriend lives in this city (would make Medicine and future life planning easier), I already have quite a bit of healthcare background so a 3 year accelerated program would've been nice and learning in a self-directed group manner would've been awesome.Nevertheless I am extremely grateful for my other offers and will be accepting my offer to U of T. Hope these stats help others in their quest.

Long-time lurker so wanted to contribute to this forum which has gotten us all through this crazy ride!

 

Accepted off waitlist to Hamilton campus!

GPA: 3.82

CARS: 128

Casper: Well enough, I guess! I prepared as I would have for an interview, and I can type quickly.
