McMaster Interview Invites/Regrets 2018

Recommended Posts

* Please note only stats to be posted * 

Edit: While I received an MD/PhD interview (Jan 5th) I did not receive an MD only interview (Time stamp: Jan 10th, 3:16PM). It appears Mac offers dual consideration for both the MD/PhD and MD programs for MD/PhD applicants. We have the option to refuse the MD/PhD interview should one receive an MD only interview (and vice versa). 

Food for thought for those applying in future cycles with a research focused CV.

Time stamp: 9:28AM

Invite/Reject: Invite (MD/PhD)

GPA: 3.94 (UG - 4 year) 

CARS: 127

Casper: It felt okay! Did not finish a number of the final questions for the scenarios.

Finished MSc in 2016. Working research scientist with NRCan. 

Note: I've noticed over the years that interview posts for the MD/PhD program in the invite/regret threads can be rare. Hopes this helps for those interested.

MD/PhD offers of admission come out in March.. around the same time as MD interviews even happen. The invites must then come out earlier.

Based on past years, the invites/regrets for MD comes out on the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of the month, likely the 17th.

Was joking about having seizures in case of an interview all day. Here I go I guess.

 

Time stamp: 2:23 PM 

Invite/Reject: Invite (MD)

GPA: 3.87 (UG - year 3) 

CARS: 129

Casper: It felt okay! Finished every question and tried to be consistent more or less. A few weaker stations forsure tho.

Edit: for Casper I emailed everyone who had aced it from the previous year (low GPA or low cars, but still received an interview) and asked for tips. I don't know how much that helped but PM me if you would like to take a look.

IP, in 3rd year
