  1. I've seen many people say that is very very difficult to get an interview at UofT if you have a GPA below 3.96. How true is that? I currently have a 3.94 cGPA and I am not eligible for wGPA. Although I know it isn't impossible to get an interview with this gpa my question is how likely is it? Other aspects of my application are good. I have long-term volunteering, numerous research positions, NSERC USRA, BC Children's Hospital Summer Research Studentship, 3 poster presentations at conferences, numerous other awards as well, and long-term employment. I just w
  2. EC's are excellent and so you have an excellent chance at UBC with your GPA. There is no chance at UofT with a 3.65 OMSAS GPA. You have a good CARS score so I would def shoot for Mac as well, but again the 3.65 leaves you at a very slim chance. Great chance at Queens and decent chances at the other schools as well. Good luck!
  3. You need 90 credits by the time you are admitted. You can still have 88 credits and apply, and then by the time you are admitted (which would be one year later) you would definitely have 90+ credits.
  4. I will have 94 credits completed at the time I submit my UBC App. Would I be ineligible for AGPA since 15 of those 94 credits were from the Winter 2020 semester which doesn’t count. Do I technically only have 79 graded credits complete?
  5. Sorry but isn’t 95% the highest percentage a non-UBC student can have? Unless your school uses % instead of letter grades?
  6. Do you know what your GPA converts to as a %? the minimum average you need in order to apply to UBC as an IP is 75%, so if you meet that criteria then definitely go for it!
  7. Hi, I was awarded an NSERC USRA from the UBC Faculty of Medicine, however, I was never able to work on my research project this summer because it was cancelled due to COVID. am I still able to list this on my application? How would I list it? thanks
  8. I just wanted to know if people have been admitted without taking the STRONGLY RECOMMENDED COURSES. I am not in a science degree but a Kinesiology degree so I haven’t taken any of these courses except for Biology and I want to know if that would prevent me from admission or hinder my chances. thanks!
  9. If you took at least 28 credits each year between Sept-April, you're eligible for wGPA.
  10. Is the writing station difficult? And if the writing station is your poorest station do they still drop it?
  11. Your MCAT score isn’t assessed competitively by UofT so the 518 doesn’t really help get you the acceptance, it ultimately depends on your GPA and ECs and your GPA is on the lower side of the accepted average.
  12. Hi everyone, Hope you are all doing well. Just wanted to ask for some advice regarding stats for the upcoming cycle and if there is anything I should look to improve on, I am just finishing up my 2nd year of Undergrad: In province applicant GPA: 4.17/4.33, roughly about 91.8% for UBC MCAT: Not written yet, not sure how it'll be looked at for the upcoming cycle ECs: NSERC USRA with UBC Faculty of Medicine, BCCHR Summer Research Studentship award (4 months), Student Research Position with UBC Digital Emerg
  13. What would you consider long-term? I dont have anything that is longer than 4 years unless I include stuff like playing basketball for fun for 8 years, travelling, employment (5 years), etc
  14. maybe they would consider activities like research as aptitude for science
  15. but UBC has no pre-reqs so why would they care about what you scored in a chemistry class?
  16. Hi everyone, I am wanting to know which MCAT prep course would help me best prepare for the MCAT. I am a Kinesiology student so I have taken tons of physiology/anatomy courses, and also an intro Biology course. I have not taken any chemistry's since high school where I took CHEM 11 and CHEM 12 and Physics 11. I have not taken Biochem, Physics, or Organic Chemistry either. Will it be possible to study for the MCAT without these courses and get a good score? Are there any Prep Courses out there that would help a student like me with content review?? Hoping to
  17. Please keep us updated on your app! Would be interesting to know the outcome.
