  1. Western doesn't consider extracurricular activities from your application. It likely only matters for discussion in the interview.
  2. I'm a bit confused about this - according to the application manual, there were 157 seats in this year's first year class. However you are right about the N=250 for successful applicants on their stats page. Do they really send out 250 offers for 157 seats and just hope that about 90 people will turn down the offer?

Calgary is very transparent about their admission statistics so you can go on their website and see the distribution of MCAT score for successful applicants. I believe the average in each section is approximately 127 but its been a while since I've seen that report.

Geography: OOP NAQ: 33.62 AQ: 27.17 TFR: 60.79 ECs: I decided to apply quite late so I did not list all of my extracurriculars and actually left the NAQ section quite blank (wasn't able to contact verifiers in time). I'm very surprised by my score compared to what I've read in other posts here. Other people seem to have objectively greater accomplishments than me with lower scores. I know this isn't the best NAQ out there but I will try to offer some insight. I tried to focus on d
  8. I believe the Western cut-off was 126/129/128 last cycle!
