  1. Hi, I did have a one-o-one tutor, to be honest I am not really sure if it's going to make a change, I even have attend one of his free sessions, and he is quit expensive.
  2. Thanks, I am getting ready to prepare to rewrite it, hopefully it is the last time, I am very nervous.
  3. For sure I will definitely try to get more articles read per day and I am planning to write down the thesis for everything I read!
  4. Thanks very much, I do definitely look into doing more Washington post/Atlantic articles, but I did do a lot of Economic articles in my prep, and I have improved but I don't know if I have reached a platitude or there is more room for me to improve.
  5. Thanks very much for posting, it truly helps when I see another ESL student who's done it, it gives me hope that it would be possible for me as well. I know I probably needed 2 more correct questions to get 124, but I will keep trying and I will keep reading more to increase my comprehension. I would love to connect with you to get tips on how you overcame CARS. Wish you all the best with your upcoming application.
  6. Thanks very much for the advices, I will write it again in January, but for my NAQs I have worded them differently on my application but here I just wanted to be concise, however, I will definitely check it with a med student. Really appreciate you taking the time to respond. The problem is I don't know what else I could do to improve on CARS and it is just extremely sad it is terminating my hopes and years of hard work to first become a permanent resident to be allegeable to apply (I was international student) to get 90%+ average in an honours program and more. I don't know but I feeling extr
  7. Hi Guys, I just need some help from this community, and I would appreciate your guys honest input. I graduated last year from a biology honours/chemistry minor degree. My GPA is close to 91%. I did my MCAT this year and I got my score back and the break down of my score is 129/123/131/126 ( 509), I have applied to UBC this year but UBC has a cut off score of 124 per section so I am not receiving a full file review. My problem is my CARS score, I moved to Canada when I was 18, and learned the language pretty much over the past 6 years. I practice a lot for CARS and I did over 400 passages
  8. Thank you guys for commenting. I always read online comments and people's stats and ECs and that makes me feel inadequate and I feel I probably need more to stand out. This year is the first year I am applying since I just became a permanent resident, before I used to be an international student, I am very nervous for my ECs since I have seen people with good ECs who ended up in 25th percentile. Thank you guys all.
  9. Hi Guys, Could someone please comment on my chances of getting an interview from UBC Med. I have 91.4% average and I am in province. I did biology honours/chemistry minor degree. My extracurriculars are not great; I have included 5 awards (one entrance scholarship $16,000, the other 4 were between $500-1,000), I worked in a sunglasses kiosk for the summer, worked 4 years as a pharmacist assistant, worked 1.5 year in the university as a tutor. In terms of volunteering, I volunteered in ER, Seniors residence centre, and volunteered as an office coordinator in Canadian Cancer Society for

  11. I have also not heard anything so far and I emailed them about it and said that the invites have been out and I have not received anything and said does that mean I have been rejected, then if correct why hasn't been any communication with me about it, and they got back to me and said the application for 2024 is still ongoing, have tried to call them multiple times, always goes to leaving a voice mail. Could people who have not heard anything post their stats? I begin with myself, GPA: 4.20/4.33 ( > 90%) AA: 20, PAT: 19 Has anyone or do you know of anyone who has receive
  12. Has anyone gotten any email today? (Monday Jan 27th)
  13. You are correct, I had to write a personal statement and include extracurriculars as well as two references. I don't know what the application look liked before, but I have a feeling that they are making changes to thier approach to addmission this year. Becuase they took out all the statistics from past years that they had on the website. I phoned them to find out why and she said they are not relevant anymore. She didn't elaborate on how they are not relevant but I am guessing they are making changes which is also being reflected on thier application. Hopfully we both will recieve an intervi
  14. Hey Guys I applied to UBC, here are my stats: GPA: 4.2/4.33 (92%, using best three years) DAT: 20AA/19PAT Do you guys think I have a shot at getting an interview.
  15. I actually phoned them today and they said there is no minimum per section, just for those of you who were also wondering.
