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

Recommended Posts

Similar to MLK, been around the forums for a while but have never posted. This place has been super helpful (and perhaps a bit of an unhealthy obsession at times haha) but thought I'd contribute to this thread (finally!)

Waitlisted
Timestamp: May 10 (8:21 am), accepted to Niagara campus (May 27, 1pm)
GPA: 3.59
VR: 128
Casper: Was straight forward with my responses, didn't answer all of the questions completely but felt it went decently overall!
Interview: Felt like it was representative of me which is all you can really ask for!

Was rough toughing out these past few weeks, but glad to be off the waitlist. 3 application cycles, along with 3 MCATS later, I'm glad to be done!

Best of luck to all those still on the waitlist, I'm sure I'll be seeing you guys soon :)

For data purposes as well:

 

Waitlisted May 10th 8:23am

GPA: 3.73

CARS:129

CASPer: Pretty sure it went well since Mac and Ottawa were my only two interviews, and I thought I did a decent job at the time.

Interview: Thought it went pretty well, but I bombed 1 station, and could have done better at a few others. 

 

I have already accepted Ottawa (off the wait list May 26th) and removed myself from the Mac wait list. Good luck everybody!

Much excited. Such dreams. So cloud 9.

But seriously couldn't have gotten here without god and the amazing people he surrounded me with.

Getting in to medical school was the prologue (a very good, exciting adventure), now the real journey will begin for me!

Accepted to Hamilton!!! Extremely grateful.

 

Timestamp: 8:28 am

cGPA: 3.91

CARS: 127

Interview: honestly had no idea how it went. Some stations went extremely well, others I was very disappointed. I guess a strength of the MMI is that you can recover from a couple bad stations.

Have been a long time lurker and only created an account this year.

After being rejected pre-interview at all the schools last year, I was devastated.

Mac is my top choice for medical school, and I am absolutely lost for words right now.

cGPA: 3.94

CARS: 129

Casper: don't remember extremely well but I think I had lots of personal examples and made some good points on some questions?

Interview: Had a good feeling at the end bc most stations felt pretty good or at least okay, only one super cringey "WTF AM I DOING" station

IP, 4th yr UG

Accepted to Hamilton! 
Timestamp - 8:28am

cGPA - 4.00

CARS - 129

CasPER - Pretty meh. I definitely missed the point of a couple of questions but I'm a pretty quick typer so I guess that helped.

Interview - Really mixed; felt like I did amazing on 3 stations, bombed 3, and mediocre on the rest. Honestly I was expecting to be at best waitlisted.

Honestly in shock. I was so excited I almost got hit by a car on the way to work.
