  1. Rejection - OOP 1:04pm Eastern GPA: 3.9 MCAT: 509 Maritime connection: none, but wrote a strong essay.
  2. Yeah! Here it is (the minimum academic standing and MCAT sections have the minimums for a full file review): https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/admissions/admission-requirements/
  3. Same and interviewed last year edit: I know I exceed the cutoffs
  4. Okay, that's weird. Their admissions office replied pretty fast when I reached out recently. Have you tried emailing them to ask? They'd probably be able to double check.
  5. Did you release the scores on the AAMC website to Dal?
  6. Result: Regrets After Interview Geography: OOP Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Timestamp: 10:04 EST AGPA: 87.15% (AQ last year was 25.90) NAQ score: 75th-100th percentile (I used inspect element and my NAQ is ~40.10) ECs: Definitely my pride and joy. I may update this later once the pain of rejection wears off. MCAT: 503 (126 CARS) - already scheduled to rewrite & know I can improve Interview: Average Interview Year: Graduated Honours Bsc Second application cycle and first ever/only interview. I'm not giving up.
  7. Ugh I work for the government and it must be the firewall. Thanks!
  8. I thought this was interesting considering physician shadowing is valued by med schools in the USA. It is from the application help guide for this cycle:
  9. TIME STAMP: 8:27 pm EST Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets, No Interview Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): 87.15 AGPA MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 503 Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Honours Bsc. Geography (IP/OOP): OOP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): I'm in my mid 20s, so I've had time to accumulate many interesting experiences. I've worked at least 20-30 hours per week the majority of the time I did my undergrad, and have worked 2-3 jobs while volunteering at 1-2 places
  10. Do they post our GPA/AGPA before interview invites?
  11. Does UBC post their AQ calculation before they send out interview invites?
  12. Also had this happen and freaked out a bit at first, but knowing we got full file reviews is nice
  13. This may be late, but doing 1-2 courses max from Athabasca would be doable but 4 per term and 8 in total in one year while doing the thesis will be really hard, and will probably take its toll on your overall performance in the courses and on your thesis.
  14. Does Alberta look at the entire MCAT or just CARS for OOP? And if they look at the entire MCAT then is it enough to just exceed cut offs, or do they evaluate applicants based on their score?
  15. My guesses are uOttawa, U of T, and Western, but I'm only guessing.
  16. Thank you for taking the time to reply! I appreciate it. Life has been so hectic that I haven't been on here in a while. I decided to postpone applying broadly for one year (only applying to UBC this year) which will give me more time to decide on who to ask for letters of recommendation.
