  1. FYI most likely reason there's only 70ish people in the FB group is because they haven't joined or aren't aware of it. We never received an "official" invite or anything, just invitations from word of mouth and friends in med 1+. I was invited from a friend who was already in med
  2. A friend of mine was recently accepted from the 1st waitlist FYI
  3. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure your AGPA would be the same as your GPA since there's no credits available to drop. In past years they used to "recalculate" your AGPA after you finished the winter semester but as of last year, they only take into account the grades at the time of the application. The fact that the don't recalculate anymore screwed me in one of the cycles, so I don't blame you if that's frustrating
  4. Accepted/Waitlisted/Regrets: AcceptedIn Province (IP)/ Out of Province(OOP): IPGPA(x.xx/4.5): 4.01/4.5MCAT (xx.xx/15): 516Rural/Non-Rural: non-ruralAdvanced Academics (PhD, pubs, academic appointment): none Accepted after my 4th interview. For those who weren't accepted, keep your head high and grind again. This cutthroat process does not define your worth, it's a mix of dedication and a lot of luck
  5. I felt the same. Some stations I feel like I nailed but others felt really loaded so I didn't feel like I did great on those
  6. How did everyone feel about the MMI this year?
  7. Hey guys, Last year I was in a MMI practice group where we practiced MMI questions and it worked out really well. Some of the people got accepted last cycle so I'm find more people who would be interested making a group for this year as well. We could also try to practice for CASPer as well if possible. We communicated via WhatsApp so I can make a group chat and you can just PM me on here if you're interested in joining. The more people we have the better so people can set up their own meeting times with other members
  8. You still have a good chance. Remember that they drop a certain amount of your worst grades (30 credit hours if you do 120 credit hours) so one bad year won't throw away your chances. Your focus now should be one doing as well as possible in your last two years and don't be distraught if you receive a bad grade or two, many people have gotten in with <4.0 GPAs. Study your ass off for the MCAT and get a good score because it's worth the most in your application
  9. According to what I've read, the proposed change was that selection for interview will be: 20% AGPA, 50% MCAT, 30% CASPer. For selection of interviewed applicants it will be: 15% AGPA, 40% MCAT, 35% MMI, 15% CASPer https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M38rYNWiSbtFISsDVn25ybd8OJonz2dWRA9Srw7cW_U/edit This is according to the senate report from U of M's Science Student's Association
