Regrets. Time to go kill myself. 

 

I don't know if you're being serious or not but either way, please don't! One rejection isn't the end of the world. Not going to med isn't the end of the world. You're going to do great in whatever your future is.

 

Please, please, please talk to somebody about this.

 

I wish you the best.

Just got results back after my first application. Feel absolutely gutted that my scores are so low. I don't know if it'll be possible to bring them up in time for the next application cycle. Seems as if cutoffs are usually in the 50's. :'(

I'm so sorry to hear this. :( But do you think its your wording? I feel like your activities could put your NAQ score in the 20s though.

 

Btw, is your average exactly at 83%? My average is relatively close to yours and I'm expecting my AQ score would be around that (it sucks to have a low average). :(

To be honest, I didn't expect to get in since I know my ECs are pretty weak (reflected in the low score). The main reason I applied was to answer two questions- how bad are they, and if I moved to BC and gained IP status, would I be competitive? The answers I got from this are; pretty bad, and no. :P 

Time to pump that 130 CARS for Western next summer eyy

Good luck everyone!

I definitely was not feeling too confident about UBC so it is nice to have some closure. Obviously my GPA was not of concern but I think what got me with my NAQ score were the descriptions for the non-academics and also not having as much "longer-term" activities.

 

Congrats to those who are still in the running and I wish the best of luck to everyone!

You sure you didnt make a typo? your TFR is 59, and since your an IP, the minimum that you would need for an interview is ~53! Something is fishy!
