Summary of Application Experience
First time getting an interview. Interview was the MMI (multiple mini interview) format. I was nervous at first but found it pretty fun after the first couple.
I only applied to one school because one of referees was unable to send off my letter in time. Also my MCAT writing section was way too low for most Canadian schools (they typically have a cutoff of at least Q).
