  1. UBC MD, currently a surgical resident here also offering to review NAQs for advice. I applied 5 times to UBC and scored 35+ (75-100 percentile) on the NAQ (back when they gave NAQ scores) with a 82% GPA so a good NAQ is critical. Feel free to DM me!
  2. Agree! Definitely include it. My employments had waitressing and grocery cashier and it helped tremendously in my interview when I had to speak about my experiences.
  3. Happy to look over them, feel free to DM me!
  4. Most people do and when you really reflect on your personal experiences, you'll find that you will actually have figure out which ones you shouldn't include. I filled up all of mine which helped me a lot to get to the interview. Let me know if you would like me to look over your application!
  5. Absolutely agree with the above comemnts that it completely comes down to how you write your NAQ. I'm a current UBC MD resident and having helped a few people from this forum in past years, so happy to review applications / interview prep for anyone interested, PM me!

  7. So happy and relieved to finally been able to post this.. AcceptedAGPA: 83.2%ECs: worked many odd jobs, had diverse volunteer experiences, included my involvement in sports and musicGeography: IPYear: Graduated in 2014 This is my FIFTH application (yes 5TH application) and 4th interview. In the past, my NAQ scores have been around 32+, the biggest challenge I had was the MMI, which after the 3rd interview, I realized what I had to change and luckily it worked (one of the interviewers even commented that me, "that was a really impressive response." My first three interviews have be
  8. Good luck everyone, prepare for the worst, hope for the best! I've been in this multiple times already as well, but at the end of the day, if you want it bad enough, then it's not "if", but "when."
  9. Another question here: Overall, how well do you feel supported by your instructors, CBL tutors or preceptors? If you had questions, concepts you didn't understand, or need some things to be explained again, are they willing to meet out of class time to help you or answer email questions? If you don't know the answer to something, do the preceptors keep asking you (aka "grilling you") questions? Also can someone elaborate more on the OSCEs? How are they run? Are you able to practice for them (ie. say on your classmates or friends/family)? Thanks!
  10. I think it's natural to say after the interview that maybe you could of said this or that, but realize that we've already had almost 2 months to mull over our responses to the questions compared to having only 2 mins in a high-stress environment where you most likely had to go with whatever came to the top of your head.
  11. You're definitely not alone, I'm sure many of us are going back and forth, or think about it at least qd, bid, maybe even qid, but at this point, it's out of our control, and the best thing to do to keep your sanity is keep yourself busy - volunteer, try a new sport, learn a new hobby, etc. But I admit the days seem to go slower post-interview than pre-interview lol
