  1. A bit late to the post here, but I thought I'd weigh in. Last year I was waitlisted and ended up not getting in with an above average interview. This year I felt like I did at least as good or better than last year, yet it came back as rejected with a below average interview. I was honestly shocked. I don't want to breach the UBC confidentiality, so I won't discuss specifics, but the only thing I can think of that the interviewers might have graded negatively is that on a couple of questions I shared thoughts from my conservative background and community that informed my perspectives
  2. I work as a project manager/electrical engineer and was working last year on D-Day (waitlisted, rejected couple months later). I found that I was WAY too distracted checking my phone every 5 minutes, and even after decisions went out I was too jittery to focus on work. This year I took the day off work. I was planning on maybe going for a hike to keep me occupied and doing something I love in case I need to soften the blow of a rejection. Actually I caught a cold and have been working from home all week which has been a great relief as well. Somehow it feels less slimy to procrastina
  3. My MCAT score was 511 with 126 CARS. I'm fine using that until it expires, although I know I can do better, I just got tired of studying and being stressed about MCAT. Getting on the waitlist was very reassuring, showing that essentially my application is good enough, and I'm hopeful that they'll take me this year assuming this year's interview went as well as I think it did. It is a huge mystery, and you just need to trust that the right people are getting in. Believe in yourself, continue improving, and try to be content to wait year by year and keep applying. Dig into things you are pa
  4. Last year I felt I did well on the interview, and only had 1 or 2 stations that I would have tweaked my responses on, but even those I felt quite good about. I had no stations that I felt went poorly or even okay-ish. I made the waitlist and was rejected a month or 2 later (an extremely painful, emotionally taxing process to wait, hoping to be accepted in the wave each week). I ended up scoring above average, and had 75th-100th percentile NAQ, and an 85% adjusted GPA (fairly low/average for IP applicants). I think for me, being a fairly non-traditional applicant, the interview is a huge c
  5. IP, invite at 2:14PM. Relieved. Got an interview and was waitlisted last year before being painfully cut loose. Year before that I was rejected with no interview. Cautiously hopeful this year. A bit of a non-traditional applicant. Electrical Engineering BASC from UBC, currently working as a project manager in a Process engineering/automation/robotics role. Congratulations to all received, hang in there to all not. For me, it has gotten easier each year to settle with the idea of never getting in. Just try to enjoy life and find fulfillment where you are. It may not happen for you (or
  6. I also just got regrets. I've been moping for the past few weeks but I actually do feel really good about my results too. My GPA could be higher at 84.6 but my interview was above average and my NAQ was in the 75-100 percentile. It's a little easier getting regrets now as I just found out that we have our second baby on the way! Congrats to everybody who got in and good luck to those who also got regrets. See you guys next cycle!
  7. Yeah I'm probably being a little pessimistic because I just want it to be done already but I'm latching on to the fact that they didn't mention sending out a next round.
  8. Looks like this was the last round. Congratulations to those who got in! I didn't receive an invite, but I'm glad to have made it to the waitlist, as painful of an experience as it's been. Hopefully they shorten the list and put us out of our misery soon!
  9. Wow, that was fast. Nothing for me. Being endlessly waitlisted is beyond brutal. Just when you're getting over last week's disappointment you get slapped again.
  10. I wasn't expecting invites to go out today! Nothing for me either. Pretty much lost hope for this year.
  11. Apparently round 3 is sent now. Nothing for me. Anyone else?
  12. According to last year's blog posts, the 3rd and subsequent rounds of offers were sent the day after each deadline, so it could definitely be today.
  13. Nothing for me either. I just need someone to post that they got it so I can let it go until next week.
