Result: Accepted and will be attending as it is my top choice!!!
GPA: 4.00
MCAT: 520 (132/129/131/128)

ECs: Posted elsewhere, but varied and bizarre.

Interview: This interview was a lot of fun, especially the tour afterwards where there were only 5 of us (med students included).  It was incredible to get so much face time with current students

 

Because of this I am able to remain close to my family, continue my volunteerism in northern AB, work with the physicians that have mentored me, keep my house (with welding machine and shop), my wife can keep her continuing contract as a teacher, and I can do more to help out with people needing a place to live from Fort McMurray.  In a word: ideal.

Result: Waitlisted

GPA: 3.91

MCAT: 513

ECs: tutoring, two summers research, three years volunteering at a hospital, independent research project

Year: Graduated June 2015

Geography: IP

Interview: considering my interview score was abysmal last year (at 10.7 with average for successful applicants being 22), I'd say I've most certainly improved my performance.

 

I feel conflicted. Either way, I already have alternate plans of graduate studies / pharmacy school, so I don't feel hopeless. Congrats to everyone who got accepted!

Result: Waitlist (accepted at 11:53 EST on May 30th!!!)

 

cGPA: 3.95

MCAT: 510

Master's, OOP

 

Interview: I found it really tough and I wasn't sure how it went overall. Felt really good about two stations, rocky on about three, and the rest went decently.

 

I will be declining this offer for another school, so you OOP wait listers can expect some movement!! I was so happy to receive this offer. I really loved the school on interview day - it's hard to turn it down!!

 

Congrats everyone and good luck to those still waiting. Don't give up hope!

Rejected.

 

Guys, what did the Personal Activities thing say for you? I have a cGPA of 4.00, and my Personal Activities also 4.00. I know everyone says this, but I feel very strongly that its not a 4.00. I feel like it may be an error when inputing the GPA next to the Personal Activities score?

 

It says I got a Pass on the interview section and a 128.5 MCAT.
