  1. From Mcmaster’s website, it states “No, you can only write the Canadian Professional Health Sciences CASPer test once/application cycle. If you must write CASPer in August or September [for schools with an earlier test date requirement, such as Dalhousie School of Medicine] and are also applying to McMaster, you must add McMaster to your distribution list, once you have received your OMSAS number. ” So, disregard my earlier comment
  2. I know how you feel This year is my first interview too and after my interview, I actually have no idea how it went. I know there were some stations that I felt I could have done better, and my acting station was even worse. Unlike you though, my AQ and MCAT score are below average of the accepted applicants (based on 2018/2019 data). So, I really need an above average interview to even get a chance (which I think is very unlikely).
  3. If my memory serves me right, I think you can take another Casper test for Macmaster (if you decide to take the earlier one for Dalhousie). I don’t know about the other schools though.
  4. Woah! You have an above average interview, a top notch NAQ and a decent average! These stats deserve an acceptance. Though, what was your MCAT score? And this shows how the post interview review is such a big mystery
  5. Your stats are outstanding!! What was your interview score?
  6. That’s actually pretty interesting! That’s actually nice for UBC to invite candidates just for rural seats! It’s definitely a great way to increase the number of physicians in rural communities. Also, I wish I could apply for it too (as I’m interested in rural health), but I have zero rural connections Although, If EVER I get in this year, I would love to get involved with rural health.
  7. Just out of curiousity, does UBC have a separate rural applicant pool? Do they consider all applicants that filled out the rural suitability section of the application as potential candidates for rural seats?
  8. This is very impressive! I’m not surprised your NAQ is in the top 75-100th percentile. I’m just curious what’s your AGPA?
  9. I think a semi-formal would be fine. That’s what I’m gonna go for. As long as you don’t look like you just woke up or planning to work out at a gym.
  10. I think all the invites have been sent out (imo). I think I am more curious about my NAQ score at this point.
  11. As a first time applicant, this process is truly nerve wracking. I think it safe to assume that I’m getting the R. Congrats to all invited this year. All the best on your upcoming interviews
  12. I just checked my email and my first thought was to check this forum. This part specifically stood out to me “Finally, in addition to posting the explanation of scores mentioned above, the MD Admissions Office will be updating our blog during the week of December 14th with some answers to frequently asked questions about interview decisions.” Do you all think UBC has made changes in their evaluation?
  13. Your friends sound like those ideal candidates for med school. They seem to have it all. Such impressive and well-rounded applicants! Unfortunately, my application doesn’t come close to what they have. I have zero research experience and am definitely not part of a varsity team! As a first time and nontraditional applicant , I am curious how my ECs pan out compare to the general application pool.
  14. Long time lurker here and I decided to create an account as I too have submitted my med app. First time applicant here and am coming from non traditional background. Hopefully we’ll hear back from UBC next week as this wait and anticipation are certainly making me anxious! Good luck everyone
