Just found out I got off the alternate list. I'm an OOP applicant with a 3-year B.Sc.

 

GPA: Not sure what scale Alberta uses, but I had 3.99 on the OMSAS scale.

MCAT: 36S (PS-15 VR-9 BS-12)

ECs: Not much. Some hospital volunteering, high school sports, quite a few scholarships, fair amount of research etc. Nothing spectacular.

 

I was accepted IP at Manitoba. I'll probably stay IP, so a spot will likely open up at Alberta. I'm also waitlisted at Queens.

I'm an Alberta resident who just completed 3rd year of undergraduate studies. My GPA was 3.9 and my MCAT scores were:

 

Physical Sciences: 10

Verbal: 11

Biological Sciences: 13

Written Sample: R

 

I was accepted off the waitlist by Alberta this morning. This is my first time applying to this school.

 

I'll be accepting the offer (and I'm ridiculously excited right now).

 

My extracurriculars are a little subpar. Limited volunteering. My work experience strengthened it a little - I've done research for a year, worked for Calgary Health Region the year before, and worked assisting students in residence for a year.

4th year IP

cGPA: 3.83

MCAT: (10-11-9)Q

ECs: 5 years of research, hospital volunteer position, library reading program volunteer

 

Applied: UBC, U of A, U of C, Western, U of T, Queens, and McMaster

Interview: U of A, U of C

Rejected from: U of C

Accepted from: U of A

 

Of all the schools I applied to U of A was my first choice, so I was elated when I saw the acceptance email. However, I was some what flabbergasted that I was accepted at the U of A and failed to even be wait-listed at the U of C. Likely it was my poor performance on the written portion of the U of C interview that sealed my fate.

Kingston is a beautiful city and if you wanted to go MOTP to pay for your medicine (thats what I am doing), there is a Canadian forces base right in town.

 

Everyone who is accepted should seriously looked at paying for medicine by going through the military. They pay you 50 grand a year on top of paying for your tuition. All you have to do is serve for 4 years after you graduate while making sick coin and building government pension and benefits. Its good if you want to do family medicine

In Province

GPA: 3.9

MCAT: 30R

.... 6th year student? Bachelor of Fine Art's in Photography, plus a 3 semesters of a BSc. started in 2009

No Research

EC's - variety of volunteer work, but not excessive, more or less a lot of job experience as a photographer. Not a whole lot of time being a single parent.

First time applying, rejected at the U of C.

Thought I bombed the interview... guess not!

 

Good Luck everyone! Can't wait to meet my future classmates!

Waitlisted

 

4+++ year IP

cGPA: 3.86

MCAT: 31S

3 years research, odd jobs, sports and non-health-related volunteering.

 

I'm also on the UofC waitlist.... very nervous (and frustrated!) about being moved on both simultaneously. A game of odds and flash decision-making...?

GPA: <3.5

MCAT: 35Q

ECs: varied between school and work stuff- but i likely scored high in order to get an interview

 

interview: thought it went pretty well but not amazing. I did use 4+ prompts at two stations but got good feedback on those so I don't think the rumors about prompts hurting your score were totally accurate.

 

I also know I musta caught some lucky breaks along the way so definitely appreciate the opportunity. To those who are waitlisted or got declined, if you got this far, you can do it again next year, and hopefully will catch the break or two you need (and try to get feedback of course). Gluck

 

I was also accepted at UC and have no clue where I will go. Plan to research a ton this upcoming week.
