  1. Just got one and honestly was not expecting this with my very mediocre (almost non-existent) research experience! TIME STAMP: 9:40 am EST Result: Invite!! (MD) GPA: 3.97 cGPA (not eligible for wGPA because I took some years with less than a full course load) MCAT: 523 (130/131/130/132) ECs: Registered Dietitian (5 years) and dietetic internship (1 year), several clubs and volunteering <100 hours each, some summer jobs in retail and restaurants, 1 year of research but study was unpublished, and several academic awards.

  2. Late to post my result because I needed two days to wallow. Result: Regrets Time Stamp: 12:07 pm EST cGPA/wGPA: 3.97 (don't think I was eligible for wGPA because I didn't take a full course load in my last few years) Year: Graduated and working for 5+ years MCAT: 523 (130/131/130/132) ECs: Over 5 years working as a Registered Dietitian, 10 month dietetic internship, 8 years writing a food blog, 250 hours as a dietary aide in hospital and misc summer jobs.

  3. Time Stamp: 4:34 pm EST Invite/reject: Rejection IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 4.0 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 523 (130/131/130/132) Essays (X/8): 8/8 essays and repeated two activities.

Time Stamp: 2:59 pm EST Location: IP Stream: English cGPA: 3.97 Current year: Graduated June 2013 ECs: Registered Dietitian (5 years), dietetic internship (1600 hours), dietary aide (250 hours), research (unpublished), lots of summer jobs (customer service roles, 250 to 600 hours each), soup kitchen (85 hours), on campus club (60 hours), some other smaller volunteering gigs, and several academic awards. My ECs are pretty mediocre but I think being an RD for 5 years is what pulled me through. Casper and Snapshot: Didn't do snapshot. TBH I thought I did pretty me
  5. Time stamp: 2:05 Program: MD Result: Invite! OMSAS GPA: 3.97 CARS: 131 IP/OOP: IP Casper: Honestly I blacked it all out within 30 minutes after finishing it. I only have a vague recollection of how I felt after writing it, and I think I just felt okay. I think maybe my GPA and CARS could have made up for a mediocre Casper though?
  6. Yeah I'd say stick within their guidelines to be safe. It's not worth it to give them any reason to toss out your application! Except I'm in a bit of a pickle because they also say that if you've done research, you MUST write about research for one of your ABS essays... but my research was more than 6 years ago. Sooo I'm not really sure what to do with these mutually exclusive instructions in my case lol.
