MCAT: 35 (12,12,11)

Interview: Was pretty good, but thought of lots of things I could've added or said differently.


Graduated UG last year


My heart sank when I saw the "Your Application to Schulich..." title, but at least high waitlist is almost guaranteed an acceptance. After 3 app cycles and with this being my only interview in Canada I'll take it  :D

Was really really surprised I didn't get rejected.

Accepted to London campus!!


Time Stamp: 12:06PM
wGPA: 3.96
MCAT: 11/12/11
Interview: I prepared a lot for the interview, and had already thought about how to answer most of the questions they posed me before the actual interview. I tried really hard to connect with all my interviewers and just make them smile. Two did this fairly easily, but one had a hard face most of the time, and was difficult for me to gauge. Overall, I had a positive experience in the interview, and got a chance to tell them why I wanted to be a doctor due to some spare time at the end of the interview. Writing section was pretty easy, and I think it was just to weed out the bottom of the barrel.

EC's: Honestly, not that strong. Some hospital volunteering, research, and random volunteer work and work experience. My best EC was from this year, where I volunteered in the k-12 school of a small rural aboriginal community, and hosted a bunch of extracurricular activities in addition to the 8-hour work day. 

Year: BSc May 2015; currently in a gap year

Accepted to unspecified campus

Timestamp: May 10 @ 12:09 PM

wGPA: 3.88

MCAT: 520 (130 phys/ chem, 132 CARS, 130 Bio, 128 psych/soc)

Interview: I did not really prepare at all.  I am a mature student with an established career and tons of experience interviewing.  Still- it felt awkward at times and I think I could have done better.  I found the writing sample to be easy.

ECs: Nothing that exciting except for practical experience.  I have 6+ years working in healthcare in managerial roles, I have worked on the executive team of a major urban hospital. 


I will be rejecting this as I also got into Mac which is close to home.

Accepted (London, 1st choice)

wGPA: not sure but >3.9

MCAT: 12B/11V/11P

Interview: Amazing. Last 5-10 minutes was the physician telling me and the other interviewers that I'm perfect for Western and vice verse.


5th year PhD in neuro, with plenty of research/scholarships/leadership and long term community involvement.


While I'm thrilled with the out come, I loved Western's campus and feel (and London), I'll likely have to decline. I also got U of T, and Mac + Queen's wait-list, but I've always leaned towards Mac. PM me if you can help me chose :)

wGPA: 4.0

MCAT: 11/12/11

I did really poorly GPA-wise in 1st and 2nd year, and have had to battle back a long way to be here. It feels surreal to finally be able to write this. Feel free to PM me if you want tips on how to turn things around.

This is my first posting ever, I was just lurking before but would like to contribute since the thread has been quiet!

I got a call off the normal waitlist today for Windsor


Result: Accepted off normal waitlist to Windsor

Date: June 13 at around 2:50pm (mountain time)

2 best years GPA: 3.89

MCAT: 10B/10P/11V

Interview: It was my first panel interview (had only done Calgary's MMI before), and it felt like it went poorly. I walked out feeling good and then over the next few weeks I remembered saying "umm" a lot and was kicking myself for not saying certain things.

Writing sample: It went okay, kept it simple and just did exactly what the instructions said to do.

ECs: volunteered in hospital setting and preschool for special needs children during University. After uni worked at the preschool for a few years and have been working at an Opthalmology clinic.

Year: graduated June 2013

Geography: OOP

Will be accepting


Im turning 25 soon and although that isn't old, I was feeling discouraged and inadequate after interviewing and being waitlisted and rejected from u of c. It's been said, but don't give up, and don't let the application cycles drain you or take away from your life. Continue to do what you want, work or travel or do whatever you want to do, because once you're in med school, it is a huge commitment.

I was frustrated that I graduated 3 years ago and still wasn't in, but looking back I'm glad I travelled and enjoyed life in the mean time.
