  1. Accepted to VFMP at 8:15 AM! Edit: Last name H for reference
  2. I’ve always wondered whether Canadian med schools placed any importance on balanced MCAT scores beyond the stated minimums, or whether that’s more of an American phenomenon.
  3. From the Admissions Team: ”Thank you for your message and congratulations on your graduate school offer! You are able to accept the offer as long as you do not formally enroll in the graduate program or classes until after MD admissions decisions are sent out in May or until September if you are placed on the waitlist.”
  4. They e-mailed us the same invite average stats so I am assuming the stats given refer to the entire pool of invited applicants (no distinction between IP and OOP). I also got clarification from Kimberly that the averages listed were indeed for the invited applicants.
  5. Same here, I was 3.97/129.75/8 so I wonder if I just catastrophically failed on the CASPer or on my references (or whether I just needed a higher EC score).
  6. Yeah, it makes sense, given that you'd need to fill out the rural suitability supplement to be eligible for the seats anyway.
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  11. Yeah I did. I think a big batch about two weeks ago and one told me a couple of days ago
  12. Anybody ever been told that their activity entries were getting thrown out because they weren't able to get ahold of your verifiers?
  13. https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/2020/06/25/update-covid-19-and-your-application/ Well at least we got something for now
  14. 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?
