    Degree: BSc 2018.
    ECs: I'm going to include more details for this because I've been lurking on these threads for six years, and I've always wondered what the specifics of everyone's EC's have been. Hopefully this helps!
    Work Worked at a Psychiatry Clinic from 2010 - 2013 Worked at Aritzia from 2011 - 2019 Worked for the University of Alberta Students' Union from 2017 - 2019 as an Event Coordinator where I executed Week of Welcome, Campus Cup, AntiFreeze, etc, and managed ~200 Senior Volunteers Currently working for the Engineering Association in AB Leadership Volunteered with the Steadward Center with Children with Disabilities from 2015 - 2018  Senior Volunteer (Team Facilitator) with the University of Alberta Students' Union from 2016 - 2017  Day Camp Director with my Aunts Business from 2014 - 2017  Co-President of Bridging Borders Edmonton from  May 2020 - Present  Volunteering Run Day Experience Lead for the CIBC Run for the Cure in 2017 and 2018  Communications Director for Nathan Ip's campaign to become the School Board Trustee in 2013 Managed Basketball Teams in Junior High and High school every year from 2008 - 2013  Project and volunteer manager for the YEG Community Response to COVID-19 (we partnered with the food bank, found 130 Edmontonians to be drivers and coordinated daily food deliveries to folks who couldn't afford groceries or were too sick to leave home. delivered almost 500 hampers in total)  Life Experience/Achievements  Talked about how I kept an event from being removed from our annual programming at my UASU job because I finally got 500 students to sign up for it over the course of my time there  Research  Campaign Manager for two student leaders who were running to become the Vice President Student Life and President of the University of Alberta Students' Union (and were both successful)  Instagram account my mom and I run to highlight local coffee shops in Edmonton  For the essays I wrote about my struggle with dependency on medication I was over-prescribed and unfortunately developed an addiction to, how my perspective on receiving feedback was shaped at a very young age by being a basketball manager, something a bit more personal that I'm not willing to share (my apologies), and how experiencing food insecurity as a child is why I wanted to partner with the food bank/help with deliveries to make sure folks in Edmonton didn't have to worry about experiencing food insecurity during the pandemic.
    Interview: Honestly, I felt incredible about the interview. I've interviewed many times and always came out of it feeling meh, but I knew I crushed this one. I prepared every single day for ~two months with some wonderful people I met online (who are also now my classmates and roommates :')!!!!!), so by the time I went into it, there wasn't any topic I couldn't speak to. In fact, I had already practiced many of the questions they asked so I didn't even have to think about my responses. A lot of the stations were also things I was really passionate about, so I kind of went off in some of them and could tell they were a bit taken aback by what I was saying lol. Can't say more without giving away confidential info about the interview. Most importantly though, I didn't hold back my personality in any way. I find that I always tried to be what I thought they'd want me to be in previous years, but this year I spoke like I would to a friend, included a lot of relevant personal experiences, and I was able to connect with the interviewers in a way I never have before. I was also very vulnerable during the panel, in a way that I never have been before, and I could tell that made a difference just by the way the interviewers were reacting. Overall, I would go as far as to say that it was an enjoyable experience.
    Thoughts: This was my 6th and final cycle. I have been rejected 5 times by the U of A, 3 times without an interview, and 2 times post-interview with no waitlist. I feel so genuinely grateful that I stuck it out, because I almost gave up at the end of last cycle. I also applied to U of C for the first time this year and interviewed there too, but I've already accepted U of A. Going to U of A has been my dream for 10 years, and it was an absolute no-brainer clicking the accept button.
    If you got an R: If you didn't get the news you wanted this year, believe me when I say I know how you feel. This process is painful, and will make you sometimes question your worth. Not only is it hard to get past the rejection, but it feels like letting a whole community down every time you have to ask them to write a reference for you/verify your activities/wipe your tears so you can try again, but the silver lining of that is that when you get in, all those feelings of guilt and sadness are replaced by euphoria. If it makes any of you feel better, some of the people I originally prepped with many years ago are now residents, but I wouldn't have it any other way because I LOVE my new classmates and know we were meant to go through the 4 years together.
    Just remember, the field of Medicine deserves people from all walks of life, including those that are currently facing yet another R. So take some time, lick your wounds, but don't give up! You are closer than you may realize.

    Haha yeah I was quite taken aback when I was rejected in 2019, exactly because I didn't see anyone at all posting about their rejections. It happens though! If you get a rejection, know that there's nothing wrong with you, it's normal, and it doesn't mean you got red flagged -  I interviewed again in 2020.
