  1. I was apart of a research team in a hospital and all of the research projects we were working on were put on hold back in March. Some projects were only being done at that specific hospital, but most were multi-site and occurring in hospitals across Canada. All of them have been put on hold. It might be a good idea to wait until June/July and see what the situation is like then. EDIT: I want to say, I know how awesome it is to be apart of research in the hospital so I can empathize that this probably isn't what you want to hear. It is for your safety and you don't want to be going in and
  2. Nothing on my end yet. I'm nervous about how they'll do the panel interviews. One of the other schools doing virtual MMI is using Kira Talent, where they'll upload a video response to each question but theres no live panel interaction... really hope that doesn't end up being the case for Western.
  3. Why are those who are doing virtual interviews at a disadvantage?
  4. I don't really know what to think.. this is a highly competitive process. In person vs. virtual interview can make a big difference for some people and that can then impact their chances of getting accepted... especially when the interview is speculated to be the biggest deciding factor in who ultimately gets accepted.
  5. Hey, I just wanted to add a vote of confidence, When I got the interview and I saw last years accepted class had an average GPA of >3.9 I also saw myself as a mediocre applicant who is probably going to have to kill the interview if I want to get accepted and not low waitlisted/rejected. However, you did get an interview out of >2000 other applicants. That means something. . The interview is going to come and it's going to go, regardless of what you do in the meantime... so you might as well do all you can to prepare and give it all you've got. It's true, what others have said - we
  6. Hey, I have been in your position before, and I suspect, so have many others. Contemplating a MCAT re-write is so difficult so I can empathize. I would recommend taking some time to focus on other things for a few weeks to a month, and then gauging whether you have what it takes to re-write the MCAT. I felt so drained last year after interview decisions went out. I felt like I was in an endless cycle. I definitely thought I did NOT have it in me to do another MCAT. However, about a month afterwards I signed up (not too happily) and dedicated myself to re-writing the MCAT one last time. If I ha
  7. Time Stamp: 8:05 a.m. Invite/reject: Invite!!!!!!!! My first medical school invite after several application cycles. Still haven't processed it fully. IP/OOP: OOP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.82 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO): 128/129/127 Essays (X/8): 8/8 - I felt like these were my strong point. I was able to talk about a different volunteer/work experience for each essay. To those who were rejected: this is my first medical school interview invite after 6 years of undergrad, 3 years away from school, 4 MCAT re-writes and 3 application cycles. I'm almost 27 y
  8. Yes, I think you should be okay! We have until Feb 4th to sign up. Also, I would be careful about any time zone differences for the deadline on Feb 4th.
  9. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew when Western usually posts their MCAT cut-offs on their website or when they they will post it this year based off of last year. It's my first time applying there and I got a 127 in B/B and I am a little nervous (128 CP, 129 CARS, 127 BB, 128 PS).
