  1. Based on some threads here, it sounds they haven't finished calculating all the applicants' CGPAs yet, however; once they complete yours, under "forms" there will be a tab called "CGPA calculation" that you can click on to see their calculation for your personal CGPA. Does that make sense?
  2. I actually don't think this is made clear on their website - they tend to be a bit more vague with their GPA calculations (and whole process in general) than other schools like UBC, for example. Best to email them directly as I don't think this can be assumed.
  3. You are correct, I believe. You must have more than 90 credits, not including Winter 2020, in order to be eligible for AGPA. Specific explanations and examples are outlined fairly thoroughly here, under "academic criteria": https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/admissions/evaluation-criteria/
  4. This sounds reasonable to me - also, in case you didn't know, you can use a referee from a paid position too. So if your current job involves "service" in some capacity you can use a supervisor/manager/etc. from your current work place.
  5. Hey @mddreaming22 did you hear anything back from UofA about this?
  6. Interesting to hear that some people can see theirs... I haven't been able to see mine since the submission deadline passed so I assumed that was normal.
  7. Posting stats a day late: Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time): December 18 - 2:14 PM PST Result (i.e. invite or regrets): Invite GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): ~86 MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 507 Geography (i.e. IP or OOP): IP ECs (i.e. brief rundown of Research Pubs/Presentations, Awards, Employment, and Non-Academic Activities - also Rural stuff if you want/if it applies): Diverse and varied, but honestly, nothing spectacular. I wrote my application very personally, trying to demonstrate my true values through the activities tha
  8. If they opened up "X" number of slots for each interview time-slot, specifically for each wave of invite emails, that would allow them to send out many waves without it being unfair. I wonder if that's what they're doing.
  9. It doesn't seem like any IP regular applicants have heard back yet, correct? (at least on this forum)
  10. These posts make everyone seem so human such a nice change from the typical “pre-med” perception. I’ve been doing lots of Yoga With Adriene!
