  1. Still waiting to hear back. Do you think they will start rejecting more applicants? (because I saw a couple post days ago stating R). I have my fingers crossed for all that are still waiting to hear back. This is the way!
  2. Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time): December 18, 6:45 pm EST (MD/PhD reject) and 7:21 pm EST (MD reject) Result (i.e. invite or regrets): Regrets GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): 86.5% MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 518 (131/126/130/131) Geography (i.e. IP or OOP): Early applicant, 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): No publication as of June 1st but 3 publications after June (it's mentioned in the research activity d
  3. Thank you for the explanations. I completely agree with both of you. It makes complete sense that if it were the normal times, people can book travel early, and if you were waiting for several other schools, you can register for dates to ensure there is no overlapping interviews. I just hope that we all get to see the "Interview" tab appearing in the OAS system these two weeks. I honestly will trade away all early appointment/booking privileges if I can just get invited to interview.
  4. I just wonder, what is the advantage for early applicants booking 1 day in advance vs 3 days in advance? The timeslots will be filled either way when regular applicants have their turn (maybe except for a small portion of early applicants who don't have Internet today). Sorry I don't mean to be disrespectful in any means. Hope everyone gets the best results these two weeks.
  5. The best is yet to come. I envy you (as I finished all seasons already). I also envy young children who just discovered the Marvel Universe for the first time.
  6. I feel like this is exactly what UBC wants to know from our ECs, that we are not robots trained only for practicing medicine but we have our own passions and lifes outside of pre-med activities.
  7. I'm just doing some random things for the lab and research like helping them build a website and hosting the Christmas party. Aside from that, I feel blessed that the NBA is back and the Lakers are playing in 5 minutes.
  8. Exactly as said by others, during the early waiting period, no news = good news. Stop refreshing and go enjoy dinner.
  9. I had the same worry not about expiring Service card but about not able to return to BC right-away after graduation. People on this forum gave me a lot of good tips. Anyway, I was able to figure out with the BC Health services and UBC. What I think you can do (again my opinion on this, may not be accurate) is to upload a scan of your old card along with explanation to UBC, file for a service card renewal with ICBC right away (call them to see if they have an urgent service or if they can provide a digital version of the card for proof), email UBC admin via chat on the situation and let t
  10. I asked the UBC admissions and they said they'll do checks on your MCAT score again before the new MCAT deadline. Plus, MCAT score doesnt count for anything until after the interview. So Sept 28th testing is viable. Don't worry
  11. Thank you. I agree. I never told them I'm doing a Masters and I am still having valid MSP coverage. I guess they get the information from my tax reports or student loans.
  12. Hi, I'm wondering if there are any past applicants who finished school before their application year to medicine, and worked or took a gap year outside of BC. Did you call MSP office right-away when you finish your program to continue your coverage (and thus maintain BC in-province status)? Also, did you apply for the allowed absence period since you were no longer in school? If so, can you share some light into how easy it was to apply for the extra allowable absence period? My sources are from this policy on the BC MSP website: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/heal
