    pekingduck reacted to hellopeople in PSA: do not try to fake an accent for the interview   
    I got mixed responses when I asked if I should do this but I did it anyways. I ended up sounding like fucking shrek so I do not advise doing this. Hopefully the interviewers thought I had a speech impediment or something

    Safe to say it’s all about the luck of the draw, or god forbid, some kinda discrimination...I’ve never had faith in Ottawa’s admission process, and I’m sure many would resonate with me... but again, we’re 2 out of 4K applicants, so why would they bother even listening to all these...

    So after my 9th rejection for this cycle alone, I decided to celebrate with Chinese food and here's what came out of my fortune cookie. The universe is literally trolling me.

    pekingduck reacted to Neurophilic in Thoughts on the written component of the interview?   
    Interesting how a 129 in CARS isn't enough to demonstrate that you can communicate with reading/writing.

    pekingduck reacted to Bambi in faking an accent for the interview?   
    You want to be authentic, to be yourself and show whom you are. Faking anything is starting off on the wrong foot and is not helpful, certainly not in your interests. I would not do it if I considered myself a serious candidate. It is ethically wrong to fake anything related to the process of applying to medical school, deception and deceiving others is wrong.

    pekingduck reacted to Neurophilic in Western Interview Invites/Regrets 2018   
    Typical Western thing to do. AAMC removes the writing sample, Western decides its going to introduce a writing portion to its interviews. AAMC adds a new section to the MCAT, Western decides "screw that let's just evaluate on the three sections most similar to the old MCAT".

    TIME STAMP: 1:54 PM (December 6th)
    Interview Invite or Regrets: MD/PhD Invite!
    Early or Regular Deadline: Regular
    AGPA (if applicable):  ~87%
    MCAT: 509
    ECs: Lots of research experience (2 NSERC summers, 1 NSERC-CGS, NSF award), 5 publications (not 1st author tho), 2 posters w/ award), presidents for two student clubs, exec for 3 other organizations, volunteer overseas for one summer to support undeserved population, co-founder for a tech startup, some volunteering/shadowing, hobbies (marathon runner, etc), some high school activities (waitress, tutoring, school band, etc)
    Current Degree: Graduated from 1-year master degree in Bioengineering (US Ivy League)
    Geography: OOP
    NAQ: N/A
    AQ: probably around 25-26
    After reading many people's reject posts from Monday, I honestly don't think my ECs are exceptional. It is probably around average just with some well-balanced activities (i guess?) I think my research experience is probably something helped me on my application. Also being a non-trad with 2 years working experience as a life sciences consultant, it may add to show my maturity. 
    I just wanted to say I am grateful for this opportunity to interview for the UBC MD/PhD program. My GPA and MCAT are probably sub-par compared to many other applicants. So don't give up and find something that you can really stand out and shine!

    Historically no one has heard anything on Friday, so it seems that they inform everyone on the Thursday.
