  2. I was also told by admissions this year that GPA and MCAT are assessed competitively beyond the cut-offs. But not sure if this is pre or post interview or both
  3. Hi everyone, I was wondering if there are any current UBC med students who attended UBC from another province who can speak about their experience? I am currently trying to decide between UBC and Queen's and I like the idea of living in a city like Vancouver as someone from the GTA, but I am hesitant about being far from home. I also did my undergrad at Queen's so I do have experience living in Kingston (not crazy about the idea of going back for another 4 years, but I did enjoy my undergrad there).

  7. I'm probably not going to use any earphones and just use my built in computer mic as well, as I find earphones distracting and they echo a bit. I'm sure it will be fine!

  11. Hi everyone, I have been fortunate enough to receive an interview at UBC this cycle which means I have to fulfill the English prereq in the new year. I was wondering if anyone can speak to their experience taking English at Thompson Rivers (TRU) or Athabasca? Or if anyone has any experience with other online English courses they enjoyed (or didn't cost $1000 per course) Thanks!

The system does not allow one to list several years (ex: 2016, 2017, 2018, etc). Is it recommended to list the most recent date and then expand in the description section or? Thanks!
