Toute réponse serait grandement appréciée Merci!

    • Based on the article, it seems that any indigenous applicant who meets minimum admission requirements (and does not bomb their interview) will get an acceptance. Is it fair? No, in my opinion its not fair for the other applicants. However, I think this measure is absolutely necessary for the betterment of our indigenous community in Canada. I just hope that there are measures in place to ensure that the indigenous people who do get accepted end up working in their own communities and serve their people to the best of their abilities. I hope we don't end up getting some indigenous people who grew up in urban areas abusing this policy to gain a seat, where they then just end up working in a major city.

    • Haven’t received an email from them 
    • Did McMaster Anesthesia send out all their invites? Or did some people receive rejection emails?
    • you take a whole lot of type A people with clear targets and goals, and you put them in an environment with no clear targets or clear way to measure advancement is probably part of it in general.
