Mcmaster Interview Invites/regrets 2016

Recommended Posts

Time Stamp: 12:12pm

Rejectioooooon D:

cGPA 3.5

CARS 127

Casper: Honestly, nailed it. Did a bunch of practice exams and have ++ experience from nursing.

Graduated, IP, been working as a nurse almost 2 years now

 

Mac was a tossup. Part of me knew my CARS wouldn't be able to offset my garbage GPA but part of me had hope. WELP. Here's hoping for the rest.

Rejection

cGPA 3.72

VR 10

Casper: Did a bunch of practice, buuut apparently you can't really practice for Casper. Didn't feel too awesome about it though, and my performance clearly wasn't enough to make up for GPA/VR. Oh well, still had fun with it!!

Current year: 2nd Year MSc, IP

 

Not surprised by this at all.

 

Good luck to everyone! :)

Invite: Yes!


cGPA: 3.98 ish


CARs: 128 (A bit low for Ontario schools. CARs is usually my best section but I did not deliver on the official MCAT)


Casper: I had not prepared for CASPER until the date of. I read the Wikipedia article on Doing right's method of approaching ethical dilemma, then I read the Wikipedia page on Medical Ethics. The Casper itself was a little bit sketchy as I wrote 2 sentence answers for some questions. I took all the breaks and I played loud pop music to keep myself pumped up. 


Geography: In province


Current year: 3rd year UG


 


I think I freaked out on the bus when I got the invite. I didn't expect anything from McMaster due to my low VR score. I hope I can somehow replicate my CASPER performance next year if I have to apply again because I am not rewriting the MCAT.
