  1. Hello, I've gotten numerous messages on this topic and it's tough to reply to all of you (I want to, but I just can't, sorry!) Most of them are on the issue of NAQ score and how to improve them. To give a little context, I got rejected last year by UBC as an OOP, but I made the IP cut-off despite an average GPA and MCAT: GPA: 82.88 MCAT: 30 ECs: Lots of research, community work, and leadership AQ: 21.49 NAQ: 33.70 TFR: 55.19 I got a lot of messages as soon as I posted my stats asking what I wrote for my ECs and how I wrote them. Here are a few tips for you guys applying this
  2. Accepted GPA: 3.73 MCAT: B 12 V 8 P 10 (Average 10) EC's: Strong. Got me the interview Year: 5 year undergrad + 2 year masters Interview: All strong, except one average Also accepted to Calgary. Will be accepting UofA.
  3. I'm going to either UofC or UofA. Now I want to go to UBC
  4. This may be trivial, but what's the dress code in terms of clinical rotations/shadowing/electives? Do we need our own scrubs or does the hospital provide them?
  5. You have a shot. I got accepted to Calgary with almost identical stats (VR 9). My friend also has identical stats, interviewed at both mac and uoft this cycle. You have a shot. Whether to rewrite the MCAT, that's up to you. But know this: you have a shot at med. don't let people tell you otherwise
  6. That's what I'm thinking, too. Thanks. I'll probably get the iPad with a keyboard
  7. Yes, that's exactly my concern. I'll have a desktop at home. Do you think an iPad would be sufficient for school use?
  8. Hi guys. Has anyone gone through medical school with using an iPad? My laptop broke down recently and I'm considering buying an iPad for medical school. Can you elaborate on its drawbacks/advantage please? (Also, I'll have an iMac at home for photography/home purposes, so the iPad will mainly serve for in-school/library activities) Also considering a Macbook Air if iPad doesn't work out Thanks!
  9. Hello guys. Been MIA for a while, sorry. I promised some of you that I will provide some tips regarding apps and a lot of you contacted me via PM. I'm going to be making a post either here or UofC page for ECs and my experience with them. Please let me know if there's anything specifically you'd like answered. Thanks!
  10. Results: Accepted GPA: 3.7 on UCAN MCAT: B12, V9, P8 ECs: Extensive (See BC NAQ score ~32) Interview: Felt good, excited Year: 5 year undergrad, finishing 2nd year MSc. Geography: IP
  11. Anyone know if they drop the lowest scoring station? I've heard they drop the outliers from the marked stations
  12. Nevermind... I thought this was med lol. I'll take my leave now.
  13. Out of 49? Wouldn't it be out of 56? 8 stations for 7 marks?
