Decided to make an account to post to show people that not everyone who gets in has crazy stats. Don't get discouraged if you don't have a 4.0 gpa or a 90+ average. To be fair, I had a lot of volunteer experience and a decent amount of shadowing.

Not very surprised since I had a quite cringe-worthy interview- I didn't prep at all since I felt like I did really well at U of T and wasn't keen on moving to London due to personal reasons. My ABS was average/slightly above average.

Posting this here to show that GPA and DAT don't guarantee you a seat, seems like the interview and ABS are worth a lot! I'm glad that they're taking this more hollistic approach.

 

Congrats to all accepted! =D

I'm really surprised. I didn't think the interview went well - questions sometimes felt vague/non-specific and I didn't feel like the content in my answers demonstrated who I was as a person.

 

After careful consideration, I have declined this offer for medicine. Best of luck to those on the waitlist!

To all those waitlisted: typically there is alot of movement on the waitlists! The waitlists will start ~10 business days after the first round of offers and will continue over the next few months. Just for perspective, the 2019s' waitlist moved up until a few days before the White coat ceremony.
