Ottawa 2018 Interview Invites/Rejections

Recommended Posts

Invite!! :D

Time Stamp: 29/1/2018 6:27 pm
Location: IP
Stream: English
wGPA: approx. 3.95
Current year: Graduated from UG; currently working
ECs: Lots of research, community volunteering and work experience                                                                                                                                                        Casper: Honestly, I didn't think it went well at all. I couldn't complete some of my responses for the 3rd question. I am not a great typist, so I struggled with answering questions under the time limit. Maybe it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had no hope of securing an interview at Ottawa. I am so grateful for the opportunity!

Was in tears when I got the email. I  applied the last two cycles with no interview invites. 

Invite!!!!!!!!!!

wGPA: 3.915
Current year: Completed my MPH
ECs: Pretty varied. Some research with no pubs. A lot of volunteering with older populations (who I hope to work with in the future). I didn't think they were too strong overall, compared to some of the other posts I see on this site. 

Casper: Felt good about it.Gave my honest opinion on each question.

wGPA: 3.94
Current year: 3rd year undergrad
ECs: Not that great I guess. Research experience over past 2 summers and throughout the last 3 years but no pubs. Some long-term volunteering with mental health and some leadership roles but nothing that exciting. Definitely need to work on it.

Casper: Pretty okay, lots of questions seemed obvious. Got an invite at Mac so not awful.

Hi everyone,

Question for the ones that got interviews. Have you received the email providing information about the interviews? It has been over 48 hours since I received my interview invite, but still no email about interview format.

 

Thanks 

 

EDIT: I received my email this morning 8am mountain time.

Hey s111, I also haven’t received an email with info about the interviews. I got an email confirming receipt of my confirmation of attendance, but nothing else yet. Please post if you hear anything, and I will do the same!

Location: IP

wGPA: 3.88
Current year: 4th Year Ug
ECs: Diverse but nothing amazing: Volunteering with vulnerable populations, sports, student government experience, worked throughout undergrad, research (no pubs, some presentations), etc.

Casper: Felt okay, it was my second time writing it so maybe I did better than expected

 

Incredibly surprised to have gotten an Ottawa invite given my relatively low GPA
