Sure fire way to get an interview


surf's up

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm been perusing through the discussions lately and am wondering on your opinions on what is the tried and true way of getting an interview. Personally, I feel it's really up to two factors: high GPA AND high MCAT. Although all medical schools always look for ECs, it really doesn't seem to matter - it's just really fluff.

 

I'm asking becuase I know people who have had strong GPAs and MCATs, little or no ECs, but who are able to secure interviews and then get accepted. I also know people who have better-than-average GPA/MCATs (but not stellar), ECs which would make many envious and don't get an interview.

McMaster doesn't really look at your EC. That being said, its good to have EC when applying to McMaster since they are helpful when answering questions during the interview.
