Result: Accepted off the Waitlist 4:18pm 

Geography: IP

GPA: 3.84 (calculated by UCAN)

MCAT:  508 (126 CARS)

Degree : BSc & MPH 

EC: Lots of research experience, high level athlete back in the day, involved in the arts community, vice-chair of university club, volunteering with community organizations, travel, and lots of other random hobbies and things fairly typical of most applicants. Message me if you want more details. 

Interview: Felt fairly good about it, though there were some stations I felt I ended way to early and should have had more to say. I have had previous experience with MMIs which helped to reduce my nerves. 

Beyond excited as this is my 4th application cycle and 3rd year of being waitlisted. I figured I should post to provide some hope to others who have been at it for years and may have a GPA or MCAT on the lower side. 

congrats!!! :)

Result: Accepted off the Waitlist at 4:17pm 

Geography: IP

AGPA: 3.76 (calculated by UCAN)

MCAT:  507 (126 CARS)

Degree : BScN 

EC: Worked in healthcare for a few years and in research doing clinical trials for ~1 year, co-founded a student club, VP in university, residence staff for two years, research with socially vulnerable (4th author only in published paper), did some short-term presentation and volunteering with indigenous people, did other university community wellness projects

Interview: (Cohort 1) Felt pretty horrible about it to be honest... completely changed my MMI tactic on my second station and rolled with it. I had big regrets for it afterwards, because I knew I prepped for it in the wrong format. 

First time interviewing at UofC and can't believe it! I was completely prepared to re-write the MCAT and have another go at it
