  1. Just seeing #buttongate brings me copious amounts of stress
  2. One more month friends! Hang in there! Edit: 30 days if that makes it feel any closer
  3. Hi everyone! First time applicant to UBC here so I'm a little unfamiliar with how the process works. From my research, I guess we'll receive an e-mail with D-Day at the end of April/early May! I thought we could start this thread to support each other until decisions come out, because I know I've been having some major anxiety! Anyone know when they might let us know when D-Day is?
  4. The days are going by so fast.... but so slow. Is it May 11th yet?
  5. They will all come out on May 11th! In past years it's always been in the morning (and I believe most schools send out the offer letters before 11am). However, last year most Mac offers were shown on OMSAS and Western updated their portal reflecting offers at midnight! For most other schools, OMSAS did not update until the e-mails were sent.
  6. Congrats to everyone finishing interviews and let the waiting game begin! I know that this wait can be the hardest part of the process. Please take care of yourselves and do things that you love to distract you
  7. Been thinking about making this for the last couple days now as well! I'm glad you did it - the support that this forum shows is unreal! Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe all interviews will be done after tomorrow? Then only 45 days.... but who's counting?
  8. As unfortunate as it is, this is a reality for all medical schools. For example, Ottawa released their interview invites all in one day on Jan 29th with the earliest date (from what I’ve seen) being Feb 17th and latest being March 3rd which is almost a 2 week difference. I think UofT does the waves to try and mediate the difference in interview date times to actually try to make it more fair. I can see the frustration but unfortunately no system is going to be perfect
  9. A little late but just for stats! Result: Rejection Time Stamp: 12:02pm cGPA/wGPA: 3.93/3.98 Year: Graduated University 2019 (UG) MCAT: 513 (130/126/129/128) ECs: Decent I think, good enough for the rest of the Ontario schools (excluding NOSM - could not apply there!) CASPer: Got Mac with 126 cars so must have been okay! I think I can thank my 126 in CARS for this one :') The R e-mails always sting, but I'm very lucky to have been blessed with lots of opportunities this year! Good luck to everyone interviewing at Queens
  10. Ahhh thank you! I’m hoping this years the year! Hope Ottawa is treating you well
  11. Just was browsing and realized that MD/PhD came out around 8pm this year a couple weeks ago...
  12. Hoping for some news soon! Waiting for interview decisions is probably one of the hardest parts of this process, I hope everyone is taking care of themselves
  13. A little late, but I’m very excited to be posting here for the first time!!! Time Stamp: 3:14pm EST Invite/reject: INVITE!!!! IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N, but did apply through the ACCESS pathway! 2YGPA: 3.97 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 130/126/129/128 Essays (X/8): 8/8, repeated one activity twice but in a completely different context. Really poured my heart into these essays and was very proud of them! I haven’t been able to apply to western in the past as I didn’t have the MCAT score and last year I couldn’t get the proper documentation in time for the
  14. A little late, but super excited to be posting here again this year! Invite/Rejection INVITE!!! Time Stamp: 2:47pm EST Location: IP Stream: English cGPA: 3.93 Current year: Gap year ECs: lots of professional experiences, some executive positions on clubs, a little bit (not much) research, DM if interested in details! Casper and Snapshot: Good enough for Mac with a 126 CARS! And did the snapshot, but not sure how I felt about it! After being ‘good’ Waitlisted last year and never making it off the waitlist, I’m very grateful to have a chance at this wonderful school again
  15. Hoping for some good news for all of us sooner rather than later!!
  16. The MMI is sooner than Queen’s typically holds interviews (from what I’ve seen in the limited research I’ve done). Most interviews were held in mid-late March in previous years, whereas this year its late Feb. With that being said, who knows when it’ll be, but I’m hoping sometime next week!
  17. Thought I would get this started as the time gets closer! Result: Time Stamp: cGPA/wGPA: Year: MCAT: ECs: CASPer:
  18. TIME STAMP: 4:18pm Result: Interview!!!!!! GPA: 3.97 MCAT: 513 (130/126/129/128) ECs: lots of employment with multiple part time jobs through undergrad, various volunteering, exec positions, very little research Essays: Felt okay, worked on them over the span of a month and had them edited by a couple friends and family members Year: Graduated 2019 After being rejected last year in March, this was truly a dream come true. I’m SO excited and incredibly grateful for this opportunity. I can’t wait!!
  19. INVITE!!!!! (HonestLY SO SHOCKED) OMSAS GPA: 3.93 CARS: 126?!?!?!? IP/OOP: IP Casper: Prepped A LOT, felt okay! I can't believe it... Feels like a mistake, but I’ll take it! Incredibly grateful for the opportunity and am going to prep my butt off!
  20. Thought I’d get this going since first round of invites should be coming soon (hopefully)
  21. I’m hoping they come this week! Although I’m not hopeful with a 126 in CARS, I’m definitely getting eager for an answer so I can move on haha
