  1. Hi everyone, I interviewed at U of A two years ago, and I scored slightly below average. I can't remember what I got exactly, but it was 1-2 points below the accepted students average. I think I performed below average because I believe I appeared nervous when I was talking and I did not have enough experiences. I also believe I was talking fast and I missed few points in each scenario. How can I put my best foot forward during the interviews? How can I do well on the MMIs? Thanks
  2. Hi everyone, I graduated with a bachelor of science ( with a ~ 3.5 GPA) two years ago. My mcat score was a 515, which is a slightly above average score at the med schools that I am applying to. I applied to med school previously, but I was waitlisted and never made it out of the wait list. I applied to med school this year as well, but I am not sure if I will get in. As a result, this year I am applying to grad school, and planning to do a masters in science in community rehabilitation studies. I am really excited about my research project, but I was wondering how difficult it

  4. Hi interpid86, my voice is not monotonous. However, I think my style in answering the question is a bit robotic. It does not happen all the time, but sometimes it does. Do you have any tips for the MMIs? I am doing MMI interviews, not panel interviews. Thank you so much for your input
  5. On two occasions, I was given the feedback that my interview response sounds robotic. Also, the personality that I present during my interviews is not my actual personality. I tend to become rigid during interviews, which leads me to sound robotic. I am not sure how to overcome this. I interviewed twice so far, and I just need few points to get into medical school. It seems that the interviews are my biggest challenge now. I feel that the interview environment is so artificial, and for some reason I can't be myself. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. I agree with Ghoststalker154 completely. Masters requires a lot of passion, determination, and hard work. I am currently starting on my masters and I COMPLETELY enjoy my research project. I can see myself doing it for the rest of my life, even if I don't ever go into medicine. My recommendation to you is that you look into something that you will enjoy doing even if you don't get into medicine. Dr. Walker said to treat applying to medicine as a 5 year endeavor. It may happen to you next year, or in five year, or it may not happen. Most students with average stats have to apply an avera
  7. What MMI books do you recommend? Do any of them have MMI sample questions with answers? Thanks
  8. BeMo- absolute WASTE of money- Any friend / parent would give you the same advice. Did not make any difference in my MMI score. They are terrible
  9. I'm looking to practice for the MMI interviews. PM if you are interested in setting something up! Thanks
  10. My cummulative GPA is 3.46. My adjusted GPA with 1 year dropped is 3.79. My GPA in last two years is 3.8. My best two years is 4.0. My MCAT score is 130-127-129-129 - above average extra-curriculars Thank you
  11. I have 84.5% GPA for U of S. Do you think I would be competitive over there?
