Result: Accepted to unspecified campus

Timestamp: 12:11pm May 9

wGPA: Not sure how they count the conditional final year, interview invite was based on one year with 3.9

MCAT: 130/129/130/130 (519)

ECs: Some research, hospital/first-aid volunteering, shadowing

Interview: Felt that it went well, interviewers seemed really interested in discussing my research, and I was able to bring up a very good experience from shadowing. So many pauses during one of the questions though, interviewers had to prompt me to go on...

Year: 4th year UG

Non-SWOMEN

 

Was waitlisted elsewhere, and Western was my first choice anyway, so will be accepting :)

Result: Accepted  :) 

wGPA: 3.97

MCAT: 130/128/131/128 (517)

ECs: I did things I enjoy.

 

9 years with one organization, worked part-time all throughout undergrad, dabbled in clinical and basic science research (various poster publications, no manuscripts atm), involved with my local cultural community 

 

In may opinion, my ECs  were less 'competitive' than what I've heard from others applying to med. I never really had the money to go abroad or volunteer a lot because I had to work most of the time. I also do not have any special talents, no musical skills, no dancing, no sports...nothing. My activities, except for one were also not extensively long-term. 

 

To those applying, don't feel pressured to do things to become a more competitive applicant. Just be who you are, and hopefully your character shines through to the admission committee and interviewers. 
 

Interview: Being from London, I felt Western was my best interview! At one point talking about my decision to go to Western brought tears to my eyes - looking back I think this spoke to how special it would be for me to stay here. 

I did mess up on a few questions, for one I went on a tangent, told them I was on a tangent and then proceeded to answer the question. Mess-ups happen, they understand you're dealing with A LOT of nerves. 

 

Year: 4th year UG 
Will be accepting to be a Schulich Med!!  :lol:

Result: High wait list 

wGPA: 3.95

MCAT: 128/129/130/128

Interview: I thought the panel was super friendly and we had a lot of laughs throughout the interview, but I was very disappointed in the quality of my answers. I felt like I was charismatic, but what came out of my mouth was pure garbage. Kind of like when you see a really attractive person, but then they start talking and it turns out they're dumb af. 

Year: 4th year

Geography: non-SWOMEN

Will be removing myself from the wait list and going to Queen's, hopefully someone on here from the normal wait list will get this spot! It's been a pleasure posting you with you guys  :)

My boy SunAndMoon, I'm still rooting for you!

Result: Accepted to London Campus (off High Waitlist)

 

wGPA: 3.91

MCAT: 11/9/12

ECs: Quite a bit of research (some pubs and posters), A lot of leadership roles in clubs as well as long term commitment in my community working with the intellectually disabled.

Interview: I walked out of interview feeling terrible, and thinking I could've given better answers but I tried my best to be a fun person (at one point I went off on a tangent about Netflix hahah). I also felt like one of the interviewers was playing bad cop with me.

Year: gap year
Geography: SWOMEN

 

This is my third time applying and it feels so good to finally get in. To those still on the waitlist, there is still hope! Good luck to everyone else! :)

Was that an accident? I don't want to doubt you, but I want to highlight that you (a) mentioned being on the normal waitlist and (b ) expressing surprise that you got off the normal waitlist and got accepted to the London campus. 

 

It may very well be true that it was an error, but something to think about for waitlisted people given that no one else has reported anything. 

 

Apologies if I am wrong, and best of luck to all.

Yup it was just my mistake....l  just reread my May 9th email and it would seem that it was indicating high waitlist....I honestly thought I was on normal waitlist this entire time :P. Sorry for the confusion, good luck everyone!

Congrats!!!!!!! Did they call you or email you?

Hey Yuritime maybe you should try not to crush peoples hopes and dreams during this fragile moment in their lives.

An offer to Windsor is to that campus specifically, so I would not expect to get moved to London.
