  1. Past years there were always 5-6 waves of offers. With 40ish spots, does that mean every wave after the first one would only have a couple offers?
  2. If there is truly a statistically significant inflation of GPA in COVID time then I would hope UBC can do some kind of normaliztion. This is me being selfish as I already graduated haha. But yea I agree we should all focus on improving ourselves rather than worrying about something thats out of our control. If you apply next year, then you would have 1 more year to work on you NAQ, which may very likely to have more impact than that of inflated GPA average.
  3. I know for sure it was not my problem. Most of interviewers are fine, just 2-3 they had freezing issues. I guess its just certain interviewers had bad internet...
  4. Honestly I don't know how we can provide uniqure answers to the questions this year. I feel like using the questions this year is hard to distinugish one student from another. Feel like a lot of people will say the same thing...
  5. I had my MMI today as well. Overall pretty average. I didn't have horriable stations but also didn't have stations that I think I did very well. Most interviewers had stone face so kinda scary to me. Several of them have some connection issues so they occassionly freeze and voice gets cutoff, which definitely influenced my performance. There are MANY stations where we didn't finish the follow-up questions. Hopefully it doesn't hurt if we miss one more two.
  6. For those who have done both in-person and virtual MMI, did you find any significant difference between these two formats? LIke did you feel completely different?

  8. huh my last name starts with Z. This is so nerve recking omg. Maybe still have hope.
  9. Hello, this is my first time applying so sorry if this is a dumb question. Does UBC let us know when to expect interview invites? I know it always happened in first or second week of Dec in previous cycles. How about this year? Is COVID going to delay the results? Thanks.
  10. I did not hear anything from verifier either. I submitted late, like 2-3 days prior to deadline.
  11. Hello all, I need some help understanding how UBC Med treats credits earned from different institute. I did my bachelor in UBC Biotech major. As some of you may know, it is a program consisting 3 years of UBC study and 2 years of BCIT study. BCIT generally gives 6 credits per course whereas UBC generally is 3 credits per course. If I calculate my GPA based on what appears on the transcript, BCIT portion of my undergrad will be weighted significantly higher than UBC portion. So my question is whether UBC will do some kind of credits conversion to normalize credit difference from diffe
