    One hour to I-Day (Like DDay but with Invites). Good luck everyone! No matter the outcome, be proud of the work you’ve put into your application.

    They really should, I dont think york can afford another strike... It just looks bad for everyone, students and administration.

    I vaguely remember seeing all the invite posts, silence and then all the rejections. 
    EDIT: for Ottawa's invitations and rejections last year...

    I have friends taking it now. Supposed to be really awesome. Definitely not necessary for MCAT though. CAN WE PLEASE GET A CONVERSATION GOING IN THIS THREAD?!?!?!?! It was so helpful for me in UG, and now nobody comes on here!

    Well who knows. Depends on what they do with the new section. If they want to use it or not and whether they want to weigh it more heavily than other sections. We ll know in a couple of weeks or so anyways.

    hartk48 got a reaction from sw604 in Non-trad self prep????   
    I am assuming that you are mentioning that lack of pre-reqs to suggest that you wont be taking those courses during your undergrad, correct?
    I will say this, taking basic science courses have their pros and cons. I think its a great way to knock out two birds in one stone: getting credits and studying for the MCAT. You also build a stronger foundation. The con: you MAY do "worse" in those classes. I think its the wrong attitude, you will have to perform well on the MCAT and face those daunting subjects, so its best to take them a few courses at time and again build a foundation. I was a psychology major, and yet I managed to take all the science courses covered on the MCAT and did very well in them..
    Anyway, to answer your other question... it is definitely possible to hit 90+ percentiles without taking pre-reqs, you can either spend 4-5 hours a week over a course of 8 months or cram 8-10 hours a day over four months. You will have to decide what is best for your mental abilities and work-life balance. I highly recommend visiting S D N or R E EDDIT, as they have large MCAT forums.

    Can be anything really, from playing an instrument for years to research in a prestigious institution with publications. 
    it can even be your basic volunteering if you go above your role and have an impact. 
    There is no objective standard here... push yourself

    All I’m going to say is quite a few of us (possibly me included) are going to be receiving disappointing emails shortly. It will suck, it will sting. Do not let that get you down. Go out of your comfort zone, apply widely. I’m likely a bit older than most of you guys at 28, and I quit a good career to give this dream a shot. Never give up, never surrender!
