Hey all - saw the confusion in the other thread. I just got my rejection as well. Thought I’d keep it organized. 3.8 GPA & 518 MCAT (OOP)

Sorry to hear about the rejections everyone. If this is truly what you want, don't give up! Given that Dal recently changed their MCAT requirements, I imagine there's been a steep increase in app

Although I definitely understand the frustration from a lot of the OOP applicants, please try not to let it get to you personally! Applying to OOP med schools is such a low percentage payoff statistic

Also interesting to note that they said there was a "significant" increase in the number of applications received this cycle. This is I think what most people predicted, and I think all OOP applications for Med schools this year will be more competitive this year, probably because interviews are online and the hassle of booking a flight/hotel is no longer a deterrent.

Rejected - IP (NS)

506 MCAT

3.9GPA

Thought that IP was garanteed an invite so long as cut-offs were met. Best of luck to all and see some of you on here next cycle!

 

I would consider emailing them because I am pretty sure that IP interviews are guaranteed as long as you met the GPA/MCAT/Casper cutoffs. I believe people who did not meet the Casper cutoffs received an email earlier in September.

Felt very confident with respect to the caspr, thought i did fantastic, never received an email. Scored over 125 in each mcat section. Full courseload and lowest grade was A- in both senior years.

just got my rejection, 4.0 and 521 

half of my family is from Halifax. dal was my top choice

Wow that's a hell of a Maritimes connection.

Seeing as a 250 word essay is basically the only factor that determines if you get an interview if OOP,  I can't believe that this isn't enough (and ditto to some of the others I've seen on this page).

For those who got an interview, what will the online MMI look like? Could someone share some details, i'm genuinely very curious! 

Interview is a 35-40 minute virtual asynchronous MMI. Similar to in-person interviews, you have a few minutes to read the question and then up to five minutes to give your answer. Your recordings are then saved for interviewers to review.
