  4. How many IPs are getting accepted this round? congratulations to everyone...
  5. Hi there, I am currently waitlisted and starting to retake MCAT for next applying circle. My score was 509, and I would like to increase to 515+ if possible, for the test on August 25th. My previous experience is a study buddy to keep each other on track and to answer each other's questions is really helpful. If you are interested in this, please pm me. It will take us about 4-5 hours per week. Thank you.
  6. I would like to form a whatsapp group for us to communicate and support each other, any one interested please pm me
  7. http://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/2015/05/11/waitlist-questions/ Reading this, I believe there are at least 4 (even 5) waiting list. Each list for one site.
  8. It has been a week but keep reliving the interview anxiety here. Out of 10 stations, bombed one of them, basically was rambling; didn't do very well in about 2 other stations. Did ok in 2 stations and got positive feedback from interviewers. Can't remember other 5 stations, probably average performance. Fingers crossed for May... Trying to write down all mistakes I made in the interview so that I won't make the same mistake next year if not admitted. Btw, If we see a quote in the interview and not sure about the literal meaning of the quote, is it acceptable to ask the inter
  9. My understanding is: after interview, interview score and AQ, NAQ will be summed up, and ranked. The top x% will be guaranteed admission. The last y% will be rejected. The central z% will receive a holistic review, this is where MCAT, reference, and your AQ, NAQ all together be considered again. I am not sure about the number for x y z tho.
  10. Thanks for sharing! I talked to UofA a few days ago, and was told different segments of EC are weighed differently (maybe they recently changed) but they can't share the specific details.
  11. Hey Friendly Magpie, So they can actually tell you what your score is for each section? That's pretty awesome. I kinda wish UofA can normalize the EC score like UBC, so people with strong EC can have comparable competitiveness with people with higher GPA.
  12. TIME STAMP: 7:16pm Interview: No wGPA: N/A MCAT: 126 CARS, 127/128/128 ECs: thinking it is strong. Year: finished master's Will be really curious to see what is the cutoff for MCAT...
  13. Agreed. However, check out the interviewer's manual, will give interviewees a better understanding of what they are looking for in the interview. https://fhs.mcmaster.ca/mdprog/documents/InterviewerManualFull2012-13forWEBSITE.pdf I found this document very helpful for me to come up with this strategy. Although there is no absolute best answer, there are definitely angles those will more likely to help you (or easier to) demonstrate your critical thinking, service ethics, leadership, empathy etc. Most ethical, policy questions do have general good answers.
  14. Hi all, I am looking for a serious MMI Skype prep partner, to try out a new way of prep. As it does require a lot of prep time before and after practice, I am hoping to find someone who is dedicated and willing to try it out with me. Essentially, traditional MMI practice is to meet with questions, asking each other questions, and give short feedback immediately. I found it personally not so helpful after a while (it helps a lot when you first practice MMI), as basically I started just repeating same answers & structure over and over. I try to find a better way to give each othe
