I am an in-province applicant in undergrad. My cummulative GPA was 3.9 and prereq. GPA 3.8. MCAT scores:

 

BS 10

VR 08

PS 08

WS P

 

I have been waitlisted by the UofA. I also applied to UofC but was rejected without interview. This was the first time I applied to both schools.

 

edit: I was just accepted off the waitlist June 30th. So it is possible to get in with below average MCAT marks!!!

OOP applicant (BC)... B.Sc Biology 2003

 

UofA pre-req and cumulative GPA: 4.0

MCAT: 10V, 10P, 11B, Q

 

I thought I had an awful interview, but maybe not... I was rejected outright after interview last year, so I suppose I've made some progress...

 

Good luck everyone

I am a 4th year Alberta resident with a degree in Biochemistry. I have finally signed up for this forum instead of just visiting. I graduated with a 3.92 GPA and must have the lowest MCAT marks of all of us who will be attending U of A:

 

9 V

8 P

9 B

Q

 

I only applied to 2 places, U of C and U of A. Rejected by U of C without interview. Early acceptance by U of A. Go figure.

Good luck to everyone I know in the race. Physiology sweep this year???

I am an Alberta resident nearing the end of a PhD.

 

GPA: 3.6

Pre-req GPA: 3.7

MCAT: 34S

 

I was accepted by U of A and this is my second time applying (rejected pre-interview at U of A and post-interview at U of C last year with an MCAT score of 25R). I only applied to U of A this year...call me crazy but I thought I would work for a year and then apply everywhere but now it looks like I will be a med student!!

 

I have done little volunteer work but have lots of research experience, publications, and have sat on various committees.

I'm a 4th year OOP applicant from London, ON. Here're my stats:

 

Pre-req GPA: 4.0

cGPA: 4.0

MCAT: 32Q (12 bio, 11 physics, 9 verbal)

E.Cs: Lots (research, hospital/nursing home volunteering, clubs, student government, fundraising, tutoring, etc)

 

It was my first time applying to medical schools, including UofA. I didn't think I was gonna get accepted to Alberta b/c I'm an OOP applicant. It feels incredible to be accepted here. :)

First year applying, in-province, just finishing my Master's in Physiology at UofA (1 publication). BSc in Pharmacology...

 

Undergrad GPA ~3.85/4.0 and 4.0 Grad GPA

MCAT: 10 PS, 9 VR, 11 BS, R Writing

 

~1yr hospital volunteering at 2 separate locations, loads of sports activities and student council positions (high school and university)

 

I'm ecstatic... wasn't expecting this since I felt as though I bombed my UofA interview. Completely blanked on 2 questions (even though the interviewer told me not to worry about them, of course i did!)... so as important as the interview is, don't lose all hope if you miss a question or two!
