  1. They definitely seem to be coming at different times! Not sure there will be any new ones today though. EDIT: I might be wrong, you never know
  2. Congrats! I wonder if they all just came out or will be staggered throughout the day.
  3. Are they still being sent out? Did they recently add a new interview date for MD/PhD? It seems eerily quiet on this front.
  4. Has anyone still not heard from their verifiers?

The gpa for my second degree is substantially higher than my first and I was going to outline the reasons for this in the academic explanations essay. Thank you!
  9. Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe during these difficult times. I applied to UBC last year as an OOP and was quite close to the interview cutoff. There were quite a few things a couldn't put in my NAQ section last cycle due to the June 6 deadline. These include awards, conference presentations, and publications. I also feel as though my NAQ section could have been written - focussing more on reflection on the activity than the description itself. I was wondering if anyone who was successful in attaining an interview may be willing to review my NAQ section for thi
