Hey, congrats to those who were accepted today! For those who didn't get in, does the email specify if you were rejected or waitlisted? Mine sounds like I got rejected because it says "After careful review of your application, we regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you a position in our medical program this year". I would like to know if everyone who wasn't accepted got this or if I was rejected with no hope of getting in this year. Thanks.

Result: Accepted to MAM (6:59 AM PST)

Geography: OOP

GPA: 4.0

MCAT: 514 

Degree: BSc. Honours (class of 2020)

E.C: Varied. Honestly pretty vanilla. Didn't have much long term stuff other than hobbies. I think it is all how you talk about it. Put some unconventional stuff like family members with illness and how I'm trying to live a zero waste life. 

Essays: wrote them over the course of a few weeks and didn't have anyone read over (lol). Used them to tell a story - make them personal if you are looking for advice.

Interview: In-person. Felt good about it! I felt better at my Ottawa interview and bad WL there so I wasn't sure how this would shake out. Best tip is to be yourself and use personal examples when answering questions.

Congrats everyone!!!! And to those waitlisted or rejected, it'll happen! This is my second cycle and I was rejected post interview from UBC last year.

Will accept unless I get into UBC (fingers crossed for tomorrow).
