UBC MD Interview Invites/Regrets Thread - 2020/21


Recommended Posts

 

Time Stamp: 4:35pm December 18th

Result: Regrets

GPA/AGPA: 84.8% (not eligible for AGPA)

MCAT: 509 (129/125/128/127)

Geography: IP

ECs: No research, semi-generic awards, lots of meaningful employment from high school, fundraising board executive in high school, hospital volunteering, first aid attendant, volunteer for a university service, travel, hobbies, random interests. No rural experience. Most were quite long term, 1-2 years at least.

NAQ Range: 75th-100th

Your Result: 44

I agree with what is being said. Its odd that everyone who has posted so far is within 75th-100th NAQ. If it's an error, I guess we won't know until monday. Could someone please share if they have any result other than 75th-100th?

Just got. A regrets email. Will post NAQ stats when I can get into OAS (now they have removed the application status tab) but here’s the rest:

Time Stamp (i.e. include date and time):  Dec 18 4:46 pm (PST)
Result (i.e. invite or regrets): Regrets
GPA/AGPA (i.e. whichever is applicable): 84.6 agpa 
MCAT (i.e. total score and breakdown in the order of CP/CARS/BB/PS): 511
Geography (i.e. IP or OOP): IP
ECs: pretty diverse, some long-terms, hobbies, adversity, strong job experiences 

was expecting a regret of course as the day went on. Surprised that they bothered to contact 12+ verifiers and contact me for clarification on my application only to reject, but I guess that’s the process. Good luck to everyone!

Similar results for me!

oGPA : 89.8 (haven’t graduated yet so ineligible for aGPA)

NAQ : 75-100th percentile 

it’s my first year applying so I kind of expected it :/ good luck to all those who got an invite and I hope to see the rest of you again next cycle :)

Congratulations! I'm curious when you heard back about MD/Phd - was it a little after your MD interview invite? I applied for MD/PhD but haven't heard about the status of that invitation. 

I heard about an hour after I got the med invite - I got an email.
