What impressed you positively?

"Nothing at all. But I do appreciate some of my interviewers for ''breaking the rules'' and having somewhat of a conversation with me. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish UBC will get it into their thick heads that the MMI is just a popular trend. I thought it would be better than the panel, but no, nothing much has changed, except maybe they've taken out some bias factor (but interviewers are human, there's always bias). It's still impersonal, they still don't know anything about you, and they can't have a normal conversation with you. The interview experience was the most awful one I've ever had. The interviewers don't know anything about you, and it doesn't seem like they want to. Several of my interviewers apologized to me for being so cold because they were instructed not to show any emotions to prevent ''treating applicants unfairly.'' Each station is 8 minutes, and if you finish your piece early, you are not allowed to talk to your interviewers, you are supposed to sit there in awkward silence. ''Be yourself''?! That's total BS in this interview format." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't stress if they keep asking you if you have anything more to say or anything else to add. Just say no if you don't. UBC admissions is crapshoot, so don't take it personally if you don't get in. Try again." Report Response
