  1. Result: Regrets Time Stamp: 12:03PM EST cGPA/wGPA: 3.80 Year: 2nd Year MSc MCAT: 130/128/128/128 ECs: Probably my weak part, 25-50 percentile for UBC CASPer: should be good - got invited for Mac with 3.80/128 Disappointed bc I thought my CASPer went well and I may have a chance. I guess probably EC is pulling me behind. Congrats for those getting an invite and good luck on the interviews!
  2. Time Stamp: 3:57 pm EST Invite/reject: R IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.85 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 514 (130/128/128/128) Essays (X/8): 8/8 and wrote About You. Worked on them quite a lot and asked several people to edit. But I know my ECs are not strong in terms of the length and variety. Was also rejected yesterday because not meeting academic cut-off where I did. Upon emailing them they replied today and said my non-academic is not competitive enough. Glad that they give this timely response and I hope they truly gave it a fair consideration. Anywa
  3. Wondering the same thing. How would them make that call and would those essays be rated in the same criteria as before? It's frustrating that I spent all so much time and editing on the essays and they didn't even read it because of a mistake. Hope we can hear back from them soon!
  4. Thanks! I just double-checked and emailed them. It's wierd because one of my verifier was contacted last year so I was sure I met the cut-off. I'm wondering if it's still an R but they put the wrong reason in the email? Giving the speed they sending out invites this year maybe they have some tech issues as well?
  5. Just got R saying my academic criteria is below cut-off. But I got 3.85 for 2-year GPA and above cut-off for all MCAT sessions. Should I email??
  6. Time stamp: 2:10 PM EST Program: MD Result: Invite!!! OMSAS GPA: 3.80 CARS: 128 (MSc in progress, not sure if 1 is added or not?) IP/OOP: IP CASPer: In the my-chances thread someone told me I need a higher than 75 percentile to get an invite. Not sure how accurate it was though. Anyway, I got started to prep 1 months before, joined a group of awesome applicants to discuss questions together, read Doing Right, and use PrepMatch a lot. Didn't feel the best when doing CASPer so I am so surprised I got the invite. I was so crushed by UBC regrets last month. Congr
  7. Desparately reviewing my emails from Mac from the past cycle I appied (2018-2019), the rejection came out on a Thursday. So were the acknowledgement emails in both years. I'm guessing maybe they tend to send things out on Thursdays?? Maybe I will still hold my breath for another day and then if still nothing just forget about the fact that I applied at all
  8. That's good to know! I can't believe this year they messed this up so badly... I appreciate their effort of sending out all As and Rs by the end of this week instead of waiting till Christmas, but this is really so messed up Looks like we are at about the same boat GPAwise. Hope you would hear good news in Jan/Feb!
  9. I hope so! Didn't want to give myself too much hope because I feel they surely made the mistake of NAQ percentile but probably the sliders are accurate. But you're right we can't be sure. Thanks for the optimistic message!
  10. Really appreciate your insights and the sharing of your experiences! I do feel pretty unsure about how a second undergrad would help me since I have all prerequisite courses taken already. Anyway, I will update GPA breakdown in the post as well to see if anyone has thoughts about this. I probably am pretty affected by the bar graph to see how off my slider is compared to the cut-offs and maybe I am thinking unrealistically pessimistic rn. It's reassuring to see your encouragement. Have a great holiday and hope things work out well for you too!
  11. Hi Everyone. I'm recovering myself from an R from UBC and now really trying to calm down and think about my choices going forward. It's not the R that hurts because I am expecting that as a OOP with average-level GPA (~87%). But the fact that my results are also way below the IP cutoff (47, compared to IP cut-off 53) really makes me start to question whether I have a stance anymore in any other med schools in Canada. I think that number suggests that my EC are also below average, which I should have known. I didn't start research and volunteering until 3rd year undergrad, and spendi

  13. This is insane, how can so many OOP applicants with first rank AQ and NAQ score getting rejected (not just one or two)? Is there something wrong this year?
