4th year IP
GPA: 3.91
MCAT: 33
ECs: Pretty diverse. I think they were above average this cycle. Calgary liked them for most part.
Interview: It felt very "normal". Nothing bad and nothing great.

Good luck to the waitlisters. For those rejected, I know how you feel. I was rejected as a 3rd year applicant for the 2013/14 cycle; it was definitely a difficult summer. However, I truly believe that rejection makes you want it even more. Keep at it, and it will work out!

Graduated B.Sc.


GPA: 3.97

MCAT: 523
ECs: Pretty standard stuff. Lots of volunteering, some research, some sports.

Result: Accepted!!!! Ahhhhh!

GPA: 3.75
MCAT: 520
ECs: I wrote em up somewhere earlier. I didn't think they were strong.

Year: 2nd year MSc

Geography: IP
Interview: My global impression was that I'd been a bit verbose, little bit of verbal diarrhea, but that I mostly held it together.


I have no idea which school I'm going to choose... :S This has got to be the best kind of problem to have. :)


Congratulations to everyone!

Result: Accepted

GPA: 3.95
MCAT: 516 (129 CARS)
ECs: A lot of very unconventional things (I did a lot of Marketing and Graphic Design work with my Undergraduate Society, and oversaw the Marketing Division's committees and budget), Autism Research for 2 summers, etc. I think the only thing that might be considered very medicine related was a volunteer trip to Nepal. Otherwise pretty unconventional I think? If you're interested in specifics, just PM me.

Year: 3rd Year UG

Geography: IP
Interview: Definitely thought I absolutely bombed at least 2 of the stations, wasn't expecting much!

GPA: 3.80
MCAT: 130/130/126/127
Year: Graduated UG 2015

ECs: NCAA D-1 athlete, engineering projects, some volunteering and summer employment, traveling


Interview: I actually really enjoyed some of the prompts, they had very engaging ideas and concepts that could be controversial and exciting. I didn't feel good about 2 stations for sure, got sort of repetitive, but definitely utilized many prompts.


I AM SO PUMPED! Congrats to everyone!

Result: Waitlist -- Accepted May 30

Timestamp: 10:15 am EST -- 11:53 am EST

GPA: 4.00
MCAT: 515
ECs: I don't think there was anything other-worldly on my app. Lots of project management and leadership. No research and no hospital volunteering for those worried about that stuff. Some unique hobbies and interests. 

Year: Completed UG this year

Geography: OOP
Interview: Felt better about this one than Calgary, but I definitely stumbled a bit on at least one station and could have gone through more of the prompts and been a little more concise in my initial answers.
