Hey guys, I was wondering if you can tell me the chances for next year :). My goal is UBC and I would love to go back home. I am currently studying in Ontario at McMaster.

- Science Fairs for HS students

- cardiology clinic volunteering

- and some other minor places


Extra curricular:

- vice president of a club related to a children

- exec on two other clubs - related to children - A lot of my things are tailored to children, even my research

I just had a quick follow up, if I apply with my current MCAT scores, does it lower my chances by a lot?


It won't affect your chances of getting an interview. Post-interview, UBC does consider the MCAT, but no one knows how much. (Some people have heard from "reliable sources" that UBC doesn't give the MCAT that much consideration, but I would take this with a pillar of salt.) Rewriting the MCAT sucks, I know. I did it last August cause I was applying to a school this cycle that wouldn't accept the old MCAT any longer, and it was a real pain to do it but now I'm glad I did. You probably don't need it with your qualifications, though.
