Nah ik a few grads (not hsfy) with GPA's below 8 with an interview offer
Graduates are part of different cohort so their GPA would not matter :) So this year, many of the students who are part first year general cohort would have gotten at least 8.25 core GPA, thats why even those with gpa of 8.0 did not receive any invitation on the 5th.

Oh okay I see ... Weird since last year both grads and first years with GPA's around 8.0 got a med offer

Does anyone else know anyone who got an interview offer with a gpa of 8.0 or below assuming they got A+ for medsci because 8.0 cutt off is ridiculously crazy and doesn’t make sense even if the papers were easy this year.

I'm sure there are probably more people out there ... MSO makes up only a small percentage of applicants

I know one person with a GPA of 8.0 from OLY1 who didn't get an interview..... Personally I think now it's too heavily weighted towards grades (I say this as someone who over a decade ago did well in OLY1 and is now a consultant). I just think that high grades mean so little once you get in and I have colleagues who got in with GPAs of 6.0 from 10+ years ago who are amazing doctors

I just think its really confusing because reading the 2017 general discussion and enquiry forum there is a person who said that their friend didn't get an interview offer with a gpa of 7.75. But if you look at the historical data it says that the cut off interview gpa was 7.25. so I'm guessing that there is another factor other than grades? would forgetting to finish the academic integrity course in the first semester be one factor as it technically does count as a subject as it shows up on transcript but you get no points out if it.
