Mcgill Interviews Regrets/invites 2017

Recommended Posts

There are 9 interviews for MD/PhD.. why do they need to post the 272 IPs first???

 

probably because they have to set you up for MD and MD/PhD interview separately and that might take more work? just speculating though..no idea...ugh this wait is killer.

Congrats everybody!!!! I've been waiting for his moment for over years!!!! But now they ask a photo identification and disclosure agreement to be updated. Do we wait their official email to upload them?

When you get your email there will be a link to a webpage with the non disclosure agreement as well as your photo identification that you'll be able to upload.

 

Edit: I believe you can find all the information here https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/mdis

i'm in shock...i checked about an hour ago i would say i was checking every 2-3 mins and around 11:40 mine change to interview invite. i'm IN SHOCK. TIME STAMP: 11:40am

Result: Invite 
wGPA: 3.3ish (I KNOW RIGHT)
MCAT: 10+/10+/10+ (basic sciences are very low so i submitted this)
ECs: masters + work experience...lots of other stuff PM if interested
Year: masters completed, working full time
IP/OOP/International: IP
Letter of EC: YES - no idea if they considered this or not

 

Also i applied MD/PhD and have no clue if i'm being considered for that at all, perhaps it'll come later? or perhaps i'm not going to be interviewed i'm really not sure. any other invites out there who received MD/PhD stuff? or applied in that stream?

 

So thankful, really shocked i burst out in tears because I couldn't believe it. i have worked my ass off for this and have been told by so many people i had no chance because of my grades. WORK HARD. DONT GIVE UP. YOU CAN DO THIS.

Me too the only email I received about med was only to tell me that since I was invited for both med and dent it would be the same interview.

But I didn't receive the link that leads to the website where you can download the files to upload to minerva ( but I was impatient so I found the website by myself and updated it anyways...)
