  7. I guys, wondering if you could give me an update on my chances. I'm a 3rd year IP for UBC. Also, do you guys think it would be acceptable to put very old and insignificant volunteering jobs/experiences just to fill up the application or would it be better to leave it blank?

  14. hey guys i know that there is no required undergrad for medicine but i have interest in both medicine and engineering.
