  1. No experience with the university or program but I am wondering why you are considering a second degree. Is it just to boost GPA? As someone who works in the field of Kinesiology, there's not a ton of opportunity there imo. Most of the people I graduated with have moved on to do other things and I only graduated three years ago. Kin can be a good stepping stone but it's hard finding a steady position and pay is not great (for the most part). As with any field, you can carve out a niche and do well but that seems to be the exception.
  2. Hey smart, my best advice for studying CARS (and the MCAT in general) is to create a spreadsheet to document your errors. I would have a column for source/passage/question, my answer, why I answered that why, what the actual answer was, why did I get it wrong (content related, comprehension of question, etc.), what I could do differently next time/do I need to brush up on something. Practice the passage like normal but when you go back to review answers, go through the rubric and fully analyze everything. It's time consuming but very helpful.
  3. But that wouldn't consider NAQ at all? I could see a 50/50 split between TFR score and interview
  4. Yeah, regrets with below average interview. I felt OK at the time but it was my first interview so hard to gauge at the time. I didn't think it went all that well but I didn't feel horrible about it. I was optimistic I would still get offered a spot.
  5. I think you need at least an average interview. I had similar stats my first cycle (94% GPA, 520 MCAT, TFR of 67 and cutoff was 51) and didn't get a spot or wait listed. I really feel like the interview is the major factor used to evaluate you. No one knows for sure but I would think at the very least 50% of your overall score is probably strictly interview.
  6. Well thats a wrap! Congrats to everyone that got an invite. To those that didn't... it sucks, I know how you feel. Be kind to yourself, enjoy your holidays, and take care.
  7. Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time): 1:20 PM (PST) Dec 18 Result (i.e. invite or regrets): Invite (regular deadline) GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): AGPA ~92 MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 520 (130/128/130/132) 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): Mainly employment, hobbies, some research assistant NAQ Range (i.e. what quartile you fell in): Your Result (i.e. relative to interview cutoff):
  8. Try clearing cookies or using another device? I'm not that knowledgeable about computers but that's what I would try
  9. Purely speculation but it seemed first wave went to E and so far this one till L. I am M so hopefully the cutoff was at L xD
  10. If there's another set of waves it seems like they came about every ~30 minutes earlier. So if we didn't get one now it might still come.
  11. 2479 after some were disqualified. I'd assume those people probably wouldn't be here on D-day.
