Invited! Anyone in Vancouver want to start prepping for interviews?  

All I’m going to say is quite a few of us (possibly me included) are going to be receiving disappointing emails shortly. It will suck, it will sting. Do not let that get you down. Go out of your comfo

This is the craziest stats I have ever seen... apply to Harvard lol

Not an invite unfortunately. Just wanted to post my stats from Monday to see if anyone has any advice/suggestions:

Interview Invite or Regrets: Regrets
Early or Regular Deadline: Regular
AGPA (if applicable): 85.25
MCAT: 516 (130/125/131/130)
ECs: 12-month coop in clinical research (full-time), residence advisor, some research/lab work, hospital volunteering, academic coaching, leadership in university orientations, conference planning, volunteering each summer at a local park (since HS), several small volunteering commitments
Current Degree: BSc Life Sciences (graduating in May)
Geography: IP
NAQ: 20.28
AQ: 22.92

TFR: 43.20

This is my first time applying, so I didn't really know what to expect. I knew my AQ would hurt me a bit, but I was more surprised by my low NAQ score. After seeing how talented and accomplished all of you are though, I don't feel quite as bad! It's hard to say whether the NAQ score is due to adjustments in evaluation criteria, competitiveness, wording, or simply needing to gain more experience. Hopefully the Ontario schools will be more sympathetic, but I'm open to having a gap year if that's what ends up happening.

Anyway, just wanted to share my thoughts. Congrats to all of you receiving invites today! You've earned it!
