  1. Yup and just graduated Since they count both instances in GPA (I just checked their website) maybe it doesn't matter to repeat. For me, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do well in these two classes that I initially really struggled in and my undergrad replaced the courses so it pushed me above the threshold to get an open scholarship. So in my case repeating two classes didn't result in a bad outcome, but like most things, its a personal decision and you have to decide if its worth the time/money to repeat.
  2. This is 4 1/2 years ago that I applied - and even longer that I took my first year English course - but im pretty sure I had a C+ or C. I retook the course, along with one other course that I did poorly on later in my degree. I cant remember if UBC takes the first try for the GPA or if they average the two, so you would have to check that. Also remember for AGPA they drop your worst year if you have the minimum credits, which helps a ton!
  3. I received my first offer to SMP (and accepted it) but VFMP was my first choice - about 1-2 weeks later (I think..but this was 4 years ago) I received an email with a new offer to VFMP
  4. I would apply - at the very least it gives you experience through the process. But with an additional year you would get the adjusted GPA, I'd be curious to know how much it increases. My GPA was 84-85% (my school didn't do percentages) when I was accepted, so GPAs in this realm are possible
  5. 2021 here, my GPA was probably 84-85 (my undergrad did not do percentages) and MCAT was 512
  6. Yup, I think mine was maybe 1-1.5%higher. accepted first time I applied. So its definitely possible.
  7. Echoing this. Getting into medical school is a long journey and engaging in activities that you truly enjoy will reduce feeling burned out by this process.
  8. Also status updated last night but haven't received an email from them yet.
