    Mock MMI Prep Sessions

    Hey! For anyone looking to get 1-on-1 help, I'm an upper year student at UBC offering mock MMI sessions for this application cycle.

I'm going to do things a lot structured this time around and have planned sessions specifically geared towards improving important qualities I feel medical schools are looking for.

  6. Really not worth the effort. Do the math. You will need 3 courses with 4.0 GPA in each just to move from 3.83 to 3.84 for MAC.

  7. It'll count. It's just an inefficient way of making yourself more competitive. You'll get like a 0.04 boost of cgpa for a year worth of A+s. 1 casper prompt could probably offset that.

  9. Man, I wish medical school was like a part-time job. Maybe clerkship or residency is where you get the easy hours.
