  1. Result (Invite/Regrets): Regrets Time Stamp: 2:53 pm wGPA: 3.84 (cGPA 3.79) Year: MSc in Progress MCAT (CP/CARS/BB/PS): 131/130/129/130 520 CASPER (Quartile): 4th Q (must have been good, got a Mac II with that cGPA lol) ECs: Lots of mentoring & volunteering, sport team, 4+ years of research (no pubs though), writing for an advocacy organization, internships... a lot more interesting stuff (and hours) this time compared to my last app, but I guess it wasn't enough. Oh well Geography (IP/OOP): IP Not too bummed because I got an invite from Mac, but it still stings a lit
  2. Does your grad program only have one intake/application date per year? I'm asking because I know that some programs (like mine) have multiple, so you can either start in the winter, summer, or fall. If there are multiple options, perhaps you could consider applying for the fall intake, because by then you'd know the decision
  3. Posting here for my fellow lower GPA people. I know a few months ago I was scrolling through these forums to see if there was hope with my GPA, so if that's you, there's still hope! Program: MD Result: Invite Timestamp: 1:07 PM OMSAS GPA: 3.79 CARS: 130 IP/OOP: IP Casper: 4th Quartile First ever interview invite after 2 cycles of pre-interview rejections. I am still in shock.
  4. Yes, MD/PhD interviews are MMI (https://fhs.mcmaster.ca/mdphd/how_to_apply.html) and I do recall seeing somewhere else that they’re earlier than MD. I hope they send the emails today, the wait is brutal
  5. Gotcha, thanks for the info!! And I know, I am basically jumping at every e-mail notification I get at this point.
  6. (Invites are not out yet, to save you the heart attack) Heads up - the interview weekend website (https://elentra.healthsci.queensu.ca/community/mdinterviews ) has been updated for 2022 so I think we can expect invites/regrets to be out soon?
  7. Deciding whether to submit my app, because $$$ and I don't know if my heart can handle another all-rejection cycle GPA: 3.79 CARS: 130 (I've applied to Mac before and didn't get an interview invite. Probably bombed CASPer?) Update: got 4th quartile CASPer but I don't know how much more of a shot it gives me since I don't know my actual percentile :- (
