  1. Has anyone heard anything from UBC after accepting the offer? A confirmation, student numbers, an email outlining registration, etc. And does anyone know when we will get more information about the following semester?
  2. Is there anything you do to cope with the obscene stress? Meditation, hobbies, physical activity, etc.?
  3. Is that like a "ha ha I hate residency too!!" or more like a "this is causing me severe mental distress. I should have never signed up for this BS"
  4. Can anyone compare residency to something that an incoming student can understand? (e.g. How does it compare to a 40 hour/week job in in a factory? Or a 52 hour/week job as a clinical assistant?) Any help would be much appreciated. I'm trying to develop realistic expectations so I dont end up frustrated with the field. No exaggerations please! I've already read a lot about medical students being cute fluffy animals and residents being the hyenas from lion king.
  5. Result: Accepted VFMP Geography: OOP Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Timestamp: 1:55PM EST GPA: ~92.3% EC's - Diverse and long term. MCAT: 516 Interview: 4 Qs were excellent, 2 Qs were good, 1 Q was poor, and the rest were mediocre. Writing station was mediocre as well. 3rd application cycle. 3rd interview. 1st acceptance. I'm excited to meet you all post C19! Stay safe everyone.
  7. Can anyone who has been waitlisted or accepted share what was said about final transcripts?
  8. A rumour started by me haha I just asked if the alphabet played a part. Doesnt look like it
  9. Does your last name start with an A/B/C/D by any chance?
  10. I'm sorry to hear that. As someone who has received a fair number of regrets, it feels like every R stings more than the last. Keep your head up. There's a reason you were interviewed in the first place, and you'll have more experience next year. I'm sending you two my best wishes!
  11. Judging by previous year's admissions, ~90-100 people in each interview weekend should receive an acceptance. 90-100/120 are great odds. I hope your guess is right! I'd probably guess around 150 myself.
  12. What's our best guess on how many people received panel invitations?
  13. Interesting take. I wonder if it's better to have 5 schools with <20% interview rates (and very little IP advantage) or 1 school with a >45% interview rate (and a huge IP advantage). I would personally rather reside in BC. I guess it could be subjective though.
  14. The percentages give you the information that you need. Your Score: 63-63.9 IP Cutoff: 52-52.9 OOP Cutoff: 63-63.9
