@PrimaryCareful congrats on your acceptance! Wondering how did you approach the maritimes connections essay given you do not have a connection?

I approached it as a metaphorical connection; how my experiences and upbringing had similar issues to those faced in maritime communities and how that informed my decision to pursue medicine, specifically at Dalhousie.

Interesting. When I spoke with admissions they told me I could not do this, even after I completed my first degree. 

I think they are referring to Master/PhD programs where your dropping out affects the work and research of your supervisor.  I know this is not allowed but I think other undergrad degrees are ok.  Not sure specifically about pharmacy but I'd imagine it's the same as long as they had a degree beforehand.

Accepted (IP, NS)

MCAT: 518

GPA: 4.0

Finishing MSc, a number of grad scholarships and USRAs in undergrad. Hospital volunteering since 2nd year undergrad. A couple of publications (one accepted and one submitted at the time of submission). Other ECs, music, gardening, etc... Regular person stuff.

I can't wait to meet you all in the fall!

Rejection (IP, NS)

Score of 69.86: GPA 3.9/ MCAT 503.

MSc and lots of hospital research experience, publications (including first authors), many presentations locally/internationally and various volunteer (in/out of hospitals). ECs mostly normal but was a high level athlete so lots of sports/athletics. 

Pretty bummed but looks like I'll need to work on the supplemental for next year. Good luck all!

Rejected (IP, NS) 

MCAT 509 

GPA 3.7 

69.56 OVR 

Pretty disappointed as my score went up from last year but did not even garner a wait list spot this year. Interview is what did me in so I will need to reflect on that for next year.


Congrats to those that were accepted.
