Accepted

Graduated

GPA: 3.90

MCAT: 34

EC: I think I scored around at average

Interview: My strongest part. I interviewed last year and did pretty bad (rejected). I prepped hard for two months with a friend and did amazing this year. Literally every station went really REALLLY well. If you prep properly you can definitely do extremeley well on the MMI.

Regrets

Graduated

GPA - 3.7

ECs - must've been above average to get an interview in the first place :)

Rejected :(

4th Yr IP

GPA: 3.97

MCAT: 32 (8VR-12-12)

EC: probably average low-ish

Interview: It was my very first interview and U of A is the only school i applied this year. I felt like i did well on half of the stations, but bombed the other half.

I Will definitely be applying next year and take a year off to build upon my EC.

 

Also, any suggestions as to whether i should retake my MCAT this year? or perhaps my time will be better spent doing extracurricular things?

I should update this - Accepted off waitlist! Dream come true.

Accepted

 

IP, 1 year after graduating with a BSc

GPA 3.86

MCAT 35

ECs: Was given a below average score for last year, so I would imagine only slightly better this time (volunteered abroad for a while)

Interview: Felt really good about some stations, but there were a couple I did pretty poorly in.

 

This was my third time going through the process, so persistence can pay off!

 

Oh and I was also waitlisted in Calgary, even though I thought I had a better chance there.

GPA: 4.00

Waitlisted!

 

IP, graduated this year with BSc in Biology

GPA ~3.7

MCAT 34 (13V, 12B, 9P)

ECs: Not sure, but I think strong. Long term including youth group leader, piano. A lot of church involvement, living in a foreign country, some house building in poverty areas.

Interview: I thought it went well but got no feedback from the interviewers, so we'll see when they release the scores.

 

Hope I'm high on the list. Just so you all know, Calgary is probably a way better school, so you should go there if you got accepted... ;)

IP - BA 4th year

GPA - 3.81

MCAT - 32

EC - Average (last year they were average, haven't changed much since then)

Accepted!

 

IP - B.Comm, B.Ed (very much non-trad. Just turned 37.)

GPA - 3.64

MCAT - 36

EC - Slightly above average, if the past two years' rejection letters are anything to go by.

INTERVIEW - Thought it was decent, but had really no way to gauge it. Looks like it was good enough to offset my GPA.

 

I'm still in shock, thinking about my teaching career ending in less than two months. Looking forward to meeting everyone in the fall!

 

I was told the average med student applies 2.7 times before getting in. Pretty much bang on!

Haven't seen any 2nd years on here yet... thought I might as well add my stats for anyone who's curious!

 

Accepted

2nd Year IP

 

GPA - 3.97

MCAT - 37

ECs - Pretty unconventional with barely anything med-related. Student governance, leadership, speech arts and drama, business and finance-related work, tutoring, and general volunteering with student groups and hospitals. No research :eek:

Interview - Did well on half of the stations, the others I felt were mediocre. Utterly bombed 1 station.

 

Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!

Accepted on May. 15.

OOP from BC

GPA: 4.0

MCAT: 35+

EC's: Volunteering in healthcare, teaching, music, little research, etc...

Interview: Thought it was my worst one. It was early in the morning when I interviewed and everything I read and said was a blur. My interviewers seemed extremely friendly though, so I felt very relaxed.

 

I have just declined this offer in favour of UBC. U of A is a great school but I guess I'd rather stay closer to home. Hope someone on the waitlist will be very happy with my decision!:)
