  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time): December 18, 7:34pm EST Result (i.e. invite or regrets): Regrets GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): 87.23% MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 514 (130/128/128/128) Geography (i.e. IP or OOP): OOP 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, several research volunteers, within 200 hour hospital volunteers, several club executives that has longer time, crisis line volunteer for more tha
  8. 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?
  9. It may be a good idea to have a separate thread for stats given this much of discussion we have already here, if anyone is interested in starting one?
  10. Would early applicants receive rejection before regular applicants too? I don't care about invite anymore lol just want to end this soon. Congrats everyone receiving the invite!
  11. Oh dear I hope it's not trolling this wait is killing me. Also early applicant OOP here worried about an R. Is it so fun to play with other's anxiety?
  12. First time applying UBC and OOP as well! I don't feel really hopeful due to my GPA but still very curious about my NAQ scores. Good luck everyone!
