  1. Result: Regrets Time Stamp: 4:55pm EST 2 year GPA: 3.70, (cgpa: 2.85) Year: BA, graduated; been working MCAT: 512 (128 CARS, 127 B/B, 130 P/S, 127 C/P) EC's: Couple of publications (1st author, 2nd author), hospital and clinic, shadowing, lots of travel, some mental health stuff, working 3 years in research I knew I was borderline for most schools and this is my first year applying. Not sure whether to reapply though. Congratulations to those who were invited.
  2. Sure: year 2 (w/ summer - 12 courses): 3.65 year 1 (w/ summer - 12 courses): 3.76 year 2 (w/o summer - 10 courses): 3.68 year 1 (w/o summer - 10 courses): 3.77 Sadly I made very misguided choice of taking a difficult neuropharm course in the second year. My aGPA is 77.63% (That's with 30 credits dropped), which I believe cuts me off from getting interviews at UBC. Again, I really appreciate all the input.
  3. Thank you very much for this bit of encouragement, really makes all the difference. I've been debating about applying this year anyways just to test the waters, but I'm trying to be as realistic as possible with my expectations. I think at this point, grad school seems like the most practical pathway, for many reasons than just my GPA.
  4. Hey everyone, I've sort of hit a bit of a roadblock in terms of decision-making moving forward. After a very poor first UG (2.8 GPA), I decided to do a 2nd UG in order to pursue my dream of becoming a physician. I did reasonably well (GPA = 3.7) but I realize that for med school GPAs, this may definitely not be competitive enough. My second undergrad was a full BA in Psychology completed in 2 years with full 30-credit course loads at UBC. Currently, my MCAT scores are (I am registered for a re-write in May and am absolutely confident I can do better than this): CPFBS: 126 CAR
