Result: Accepted, St George

Timestamp: 9:35 AM

cGPA: 3.99 (not eligible for wGPA) 

MCAT: 50x

ECs: Leadership positions, volunteering/tutoring within my community, some research, a few scholarships and awards. 

Essays: Concise and very personal... made sure they gave the reader a good sense of who I am. 

Interview: I made sure to bring in personal examples to as many questions as I could so that my answer was more engaging for the rater. Felt like I'd rambled a bit on at least one question, but I used up the full time given for every question. I'm so so grateful for this opportunity and excited to meet everyone (virtually?) in the Fall! 

Year: BSc. 2020

Also, I was rejected last year so I feel your pain if you're in that position today. Feel free to PM me if you need someone to talk to, and just know it'll get easier every day. Be proud of yourself for making it this far!!!

Congrats to everyone who got an offer and good luck to those waiting! Need to choose between UofT and Mac (can't even believe I have a choice lol), kinda leaning towards UofT at the moment.

ECs: check post history from McGill interview invite. 

Essays: did much better on them this year. Spent maybe about 1 month on them. Asked a u of t med student to absolutely roast the essays and destroy my self-esteem, it paid off.

Did not see Ottawa at midnight so I assumed it was a reject. Told myself that I was quitting medicine at 4 AM because this was my third cycle and didn't think that I was meant to be a physician. Thank god this worked out.

MCAT: 519

ECs: Diverse and long term 

Essays: Felt good about them and made them personal. Similar quality to last year. 

Interview: Felt that I gave decent to good answers to the questions. Pretty crushed as these felt better than last year (where I was waitlisted). Guess it just goes to show how inaccurate self-evals are. U of T was my top choice, and it sucks to have done worse this cycle :( 

Year: MSc final year
