  1. do you think it means Reject tho? If we haven't gotten anything
  2. They got the invite later in the day? This gives me hope
  3. I'm also a non-trad (engineering), without any background in bio & chemistry. I really don't think you should enroll in a prep course. Self-studying was sufficient to get a decent score (517) in 3.5 months, and that money will be better spent on getting prep resources (i used Kaplan books and Uearth). It's totally doable!
  4. I'm pretty sure if you graduate from an engineering program, you can call yourself an "engineer". You just can't call yourself a professional engineer.
  5. Thank you all! I will probably get the TPR books, and use Kaplan for maybe quick review/refresher.
  6. Hey guys, I'm currently preparing for the mcat exam in the August of 2020 while working full-time right now. I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed with the amount of content I have to cover for the exam, and the fact that I need to learn all of them from scratch since I have not taken a single course covered in mcat... I have the Kaplan prep books, but I've been told that it's too light on the content, and that TPR is the way to go if you're learning from scratch. Is this true? Any recommendations?

  7. Hey thanks for the response man, I really appreciate it. Yeah for now my main focus is the GPA. Trying my best to raise that up to 3.95+ cgpa for year 3 and 4 but it's so hard :/ Also I've recently secured a research position at the SickKids hospital so I'm really looking forward to it! Do you have any good resources for CARS practice? As you've said, I think I can self-study the rest of the MCAT content but the CARS section seems the most difficult to me. I already do online daily passages but haven't been helping very much. Thanks a lot
  8. That's amazing dude! By any chance did you have a solid reading/writing background? Or were you more on the average side of the spectrum?
  9. Thank you so much for your response! Do you mind if I dm some other questions I have? I'm actually aiming for Western myself as well and would love to get to know more about your experiences on preparing for it
