Time Stamp: 1:44 (mountain time)

Result: Invite!!!! (unless of course they sent me a stealth rejection to my spam folder at the same time)


MCAT: 520 129/130/132/129

ECs: TAing, Research, Coaching and playing sports, Teaching music, Playing in bands (I really hadn't seen this as a strength)

I'll be fully honest, I didn't see this coming in a million years. The fact that other people are getting rejections as well as invites has me a little suspicious that my interview will be somehow rescinded. With that said, attending Queens would be a dream come true!

Result: Invite!!

wGPA: 3.94

Biomedical research in UG/Grad, clinical research, lead on a QI project, publications, conferences, awards, TA, leadership roles in UG/Grad, medically-related volunteering, employment at a hospital, sports and other fun stuff. Filled all of the available ABS slots with things that are meaningful to me.

In disbelief. So grateful  :)  Best of luck to everyone still waiting for news!

Mine was in my spam folder


Time Stamp: 5:08 pm (Atlantic)

Result: Reject

wGPA: 4.0

MCAT: 511 (I don't think this met cut offs, I also had a pretty low CARS)

ECs: Lots of volunteering and leadership positions, no research however

Current Year: 4th undergrad


I think my MCAT score was a decider for most of the Ontario schools, as the only interview I got was to Ottawa. Which is disappointing because I thought it was pretty decent. I don't think I will re-write though as Ottawa and Dal are my first choices.
