Ah blasted BSci Mcat! I've thought about taking the MCAT again to improve my Bio score, but I don't know if I could repeat the two 130s. So close!

IP/OOP: IP
SWOMEN: No

2YGPA: 3.86
MCAT: 520 (128 in bio and physics; 132 in CARS and Soc)

ECs: lots of theatre productions, literacy tutoring, refugee org, various internships and jobs, short stints at hospital, community centre, lab, etc...

 

I feel very validated by this invitation: I got invited to interview at McMaster, but I thought it might be my only invitation because I'm coming from an undergrad in drama. Feeling like an Establishment-approved premed now!!

2 rejections (Western/Ottawa) in one day.. I feel sick to my stomach.  

 

Missed it by one point in CARS.

 

 

 

 

Hey Thermo,

 

I just wanted to say I'm sorry this year's process at Western worked against you. I've read some of your posts (serious congrats on that 132 with no physics classes, btw) and it sounds like you'd make such a great doctor. Wishing you lots of luck for your interviews out west!
