MCAT: 522 (131/129/132/130)

ECs:  2 years of undergrad research, a few pubs (one second author), some university societies. My non-academic score was pretty low at other schools I applied to and didn't get accepted/interviewed at so I'm surprised!

4YRS GPA/2YRS GPA: 3.63 (Yes, it's possible!)/3.83

MCAT: 518 (130/127/130/131)

MMI and Panel Interview Thoughts: I felt reaaaalllly unsure about the second half of the MMI. The first half I thought I was on top of, but I remember not feeling great about how I handled the second half. The panel, on the other hand, I thought was amazing. I felt that I really connected well with my interviewers and it was like having a conversation over drinks at a bar lol.

Panel Date (Saturday March 27th or Sunday March 28th): Sat Mar 27

ECs:  A lot. Been working in research for almost 3 years, a medical clinic for one, lots of volunteer activities/extracurriculars I've been involved with, particularly around mentorship and global health. Also had a number of activities/hobbies listed. Happy to share details for those interested

Year: 2 years post-Master's

I'm completely numb. Also posted in another thread, but I find myself in the crazy position of having more than one offer. After 4 years straight of pre-interview rejections, I never dreamed to find myself in this position. My sole focus was trying to get in anywhere lol. I think I'll probably have to spend the full two weeks deciding where I'll go. Excited at the thought of having some of you as colleagues in the near future!

4YRS GPA/2YRS GPA: 3.52/3.75

MCAT: 125/130/130/131

MMI and Panel Interview Thoughts: I thought the MMI went well, and I had made it to panel last year too. Last year's panel I think I fully botched. This one went better, but it seemed a bit cold and there were some technical blips. That said, I've been told by mentors that my interview skills are very strong, so maybe my self-assessment was too harsh here. 

Panel Date (Saturday March 27th or Sunday March 28th): Saturday in the afternoon. 

ECs: Numerous (I filled it out completely), diverse, long term. Very little research experience. PM me for details. 

Year: Post grad, currently working full time. 

Geography: IP

 

 

After the sting of last year's rejection and the dreaded certainty that I was going to get another this year, along with the fact that I'm a non trad applicant... I'm ecstatic. And also still pinching myself. Is this real life? 

 

I can't wait to meet my Qmed family! Congrats to everyone who got in, and for those of you who didn't get the news you were hoping for today: don't give up. Keep trying. Med school isn't going anywhere and "not this year" doesn't meant "never".

MCAT: 518 (130/130/128/130) 

MMI and Panel Interview Thoughts: Messed up one station on the MMI by misinterpreting part of the prompt and only realized it afterwards when I was mulling over my answers. Panel went really well and felt like I connected with both panelists while being able to convey everything I wanted

Panel Date: Sat March 27

As parting words I would like to say that although it is incredibly hard to see the positive for those on the WL or those who were R, everything happens for a reason. Last year I was WL at McMaster as part of the lottery cohort, however, by not being accepted off the WL last year, I got to enjoy my final year of UG with my friends and colleagues. I will now get to hopefully have a "normal" medical school experience as COVID cases continue to decline over the next few months, while those accepted last year basically did Zoom Med School. Someone once told me a quote that I'll never forget and I hope you find some peace in it just like I did: Everything works out in the end, and if everything hasn't worked out yet, then it's not the end!

For those of you on the WL, I will likely be rejecting my offer in favour of McMaster. Good luck!
