  1. My understanding was there is only one waitlist but OOP tend to rank higher on it due to higher stats. The max OOP students UBC can have is 29 (10% of the class) and if you look at the stats for the last 3 years, the numbers for OOP have been 27, 22 and 20, which makes me think that some of the OOP spots go to IP from the waitlist.
  2. Same, not sure how to feel rn. Was waitlisted before and rejected end of June :/
  3. I havent heard back yet either. this is so bizzare. People who've gotten the R, do you mind sharing your last name?
  4. That is an impressive MCAT score! Thanks for sharing... I hope med school has been an amazing experience for you so far!
  5. Seeing there are many of us who are in their late 20s and been applying with high 70s/low 80s with no luck, in one of the recent thread, I am wondering if people who got in with similar GPAs are willing to share what their MCAT score was. No one knows how UBC scores the MCAT post-interview and the stats show that each year they accept people with 70s and low 80s, but I'm wondering if people compensate this with a super high MCAT score. Perhaps this insight will provide us non-trad, repeat applicants with some insight into whether we can improve our chances in one way or another. Thank you in
  6. I'm in the same boat as many of you in this thread. I'm 28 this year and I've been applying for the last three years straight with a gpa of about 78/79, which finally bumped up to to a low 80ish this round. I was waitlisted in the 2018/2019 cycle with a 507 mcat and an above average interview score. Last cycle, I rewrote my mcat and got 511 but I didn't even receive an interview. This year I feel lucky to have received an interview but as the D-day looms, I'm getting more and more anxious. Even though I am in another career and doing well, I often feel like a failure and and keep thinking abo
  7. I would agree with @offmychestplease too! You have a great average that won't hold you back. Your job seems great as well so I think rewriting those descriptions and really narrowing down on what you want adcom to see will make a bigger difference. I have applied three times- twice with high 70s and now once with low 80s and managed to get an interview twice because of my NAQ. In my case, GPA definitely holds me back so if yours was as low as mine it would make more sense to get it higher but I think for you, if you can work on your NAQ, you have a solid shot!
  8. I'm definitely down for interview practice.. in the past there has been a facebook group created and someone usually takes the lead and becomes the organizer for in-person prep session. I went in 2018-2019 and found them SUPER helpful. Not sure how to approach it since we would have to do it virtually but I think setting up a facebook group would a be a good start!
  9. I can currently see 18 slots, and 40 maximum for each slot I think.. that takes it to 720 interview spots... most slots have over 50% of the spots remaining... I think there is still a chance for people who havent heard back yet!
  10. Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time): 10:17 am Dec 18 Result (i.e. invite or regrets): invite GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): Around 80-81, I finally qualified for adjusted gpa this year.. agpa in previous years was around 79 MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 511, Cars 124 Geography (i.e. IP or OOP): IP ECs (i.e. brief rundown of Research Pubs/Presentations, Awards, Employment, and Non-Academic Activities - also Rural stuff if you want/if it applies): Teacher, lots of hobbies and day to day life stuff (taking care of sick grandparents)
  11. The way you write your descriptions make a huge difference. I had a 39 TFR last year and 75th-100th percentile this year but I know my activities are similar to anyone else applying.
