  1. Yeah, it makes sense, given that you'd need to fill out the rural suitability supplement to be eligible for the seats anyway.
  2. Are you using a computer/laptop with a built-in mic? I noticed the audio quality was a lot better when I stopped using airpods with my MacBook
  3. Anybody else struggling with finding a suitable for the service reference? Most of the structured volunteering roles I’ve done work in a way where you’re not really in contact with the volunteer coordinators, so it’d be tricky for them to comment on the specifics of how I did in the position.
  4. Zoom + breakout rooms? Not as easy as Scarfe meet-ups unfortunately haha.

  6. Yeah I did. I think a big batch about two weeks ago and one told me a couple of days ago
  7. Anybody ever been told that their activity entries were getting thrown out because they weren't able to get ahold of your verifiers?
  8. https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/2020/06/25/update-covid-19-and-your-application/ Well at least we got something for now
  9. I vaguely remember the admissions team posting about Covid-19 back in April but it looks like it’s been silence on that end since then. Has anyone reached out/heard more?
  10. I've already spoken to UofT about whether I'd be eligible for wGPA (the answer is no) if I took fewer than 5 FCEs for my second Bachelor's, but I'm wondering if the schools in general take a dim view for sub-full course loads. I always took at least 5 course per term during my first Bachelor's, but I'm not sure if I want to continue doing that into my second Bachelor's.
  11. One of the things I've talked about on my app is a small eBay business that I run by myself. I have the entry in employment history currently, but I'm reading the help guide right now and I could be misinterpreting, but it seems like the section is more meant for normal, paid jobs.... Would it make more sense to fit into Diversity of Experiences??? (which i've already maxed out entries on...)
  12. May 2019 UBC grad here, been trying to look for a clinical research gig to pass time during this application cycle. No luck on the job hunt so far. I've been seriously looking for about a month now and applying broadly to anything that seems like clinical research so far, but haven't managed to land an interview for any position so far. I know it's still early in the job hunt, but I figured having co-op and directed studies under my belt would give me a boost, but the payoff hasn't been there so far. I've mainly been looking into positions that fall into the category of "Clinical Research Coor
  13. TIME STAMP: 5:50pm Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): 87.48 MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 511 Geography (IP/OOP): IP ECs: Mix of Research (Co-op, no pubs), typical volunteering & club stuff, part-time job NAQ: 24.37 AQ: 26.44 TFR: 50.81 NAQ went down ~4 points compared to last year, interviewed last year. I know there's no guarantees but pretty choked right now and I have a final to write tomorrow. I guess I'll hold out hope for OMSAS.
  14. Solonly was super helpful when I was practicing for my MMIs!! He gave really good feedback, and his scenarios were definitely challenging, but I could see why he asked the questions that he did. When he explains a scenario after the fact, he breaks it down so you can really see his thought process, which you can apply yourself. I think he really helped me figure out where my strengths and weaknesses, and I really appreciated that he took the time to get to know me as well. You can tell that he really wants you to succeed.
