Oop Chances

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just wanted to gauge how well my supplemental essay needs to be as an out of province student. I do have a 4.00 in terms of Dal and a 519 on my MCAT, and a few medically related long term commitments. Does anyone know what the approximate chances are for a student with these scores? Sorry I know its such a vague question and so many other factors come into play. Also does anyone know how many OOP apply and how many are called in for an interview ?

Like anything in the real world...it needs to be done well to have the best chance at succeeding (Don't OOP Dalhousie applicants need to have an essay describing their Maritime connection? If so I believe that must be of solid quality). Why would you work your butt off for that GPA/MCAT and sell yourself short on one aspect of your application, go all out. Its a one time thing :) You said it yourself, there are so many variables involved, work them all to your benefit and that includes having a strong supplemental, leave minimal room for them to screw you over.

 

Statistics are usually on the website? (Tad too lazy to check for you right now).

Can't remember, but it's on the website somewhere. As far as chances, no one can give you anything, but it's not going to change your chances so just focus on the maritime essay

Size of the pool of OOP applicants varies from year to year, but they call about 50-60 to interview, and, like MDHopefulyMe, there are 9 seats. I would also suggest you focus on writing the best application because you never know where you'll get in. A big mistake that people make, especially when applying to med the first time, is not applying to enough places.
