UofT Interview Invites/Regrets (2013)

Recommended Posts

Got mine today!

 

Time stamp: February 7th, 4:17PM

Interview Date: 03/02

Result: Invite

wGPA: 4.0

MCAT: 13PS/13VR/10BS/T

ECs: Lots of work (I worked all through school so this includes some customer service stuff, summer camps, tutoring, research jobs, and the "real life" job I've been at since I graduated last Spring), research with one publication, some local volunteering, music, sports... nothing "exceptional" but lots of things that do a good job of representing who I am.

Essays: I felt great about them, I've always loved writing so I thought they went well. It was challenging saying everything I wanted to say within the word limits, but overall I was happy with the results.

Year: Graduated, taking a "gap year" and working full time

I can't believe this is really happening - it seemed so far away four years ago. Congratulations to everyone else who received an interview, maybe I'll meet a few of you on interview day!

Time stamp: noonish

Interview date: March 1st

cGPA: 3.75

wGPA: 3.88

MCAT: 11/11/11/Q

ECs: A lot and above average I would say. I guess this gave me leverage.

Essays: Spent the most time on since other schools didn't require anything aside from McMaster CASPer prep. Rewrote the essays about 10 times and had many ppl give me their opinion and went with what I was most comfortable with and what I felt best represented my views/beliefs.

 

Graduated with HBSc nearly 2 years ago. Been f*cking around since.

This is my first time applying and I didn't receive interviews at Mac or Ottawa, so I am pretty pumped about U of T! Also wasn't expecting to hear from U of T for a while because I am a graduate applicant.
