    After 6 years of applying to UBC Medicine... going through all the possibilities (regrets before interview, to regrets after interview, to regrets after waitlist, to being ineligible for 2 whole years), I seriously cannot believe I'm writing this... It had always seemed like it's something too good to be true, yet here I am. There are many people I would like to thank (and letting them know will take a solid week) from the bottom of my heart for the support, encouragement, and love they have provided me within this long and incredible journey I have been through. I write this with shock, excitement, and full of heart. TIME STAMP: 11:56 AM PST (May 10, 2019) Result: ACCEPTED VFMP (1st choice) !! Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Deadline GPA or AGPA (if applicable): ~84% MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 514 – (130 / 125 / 130 / 129) Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): BSc in 2014 Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): I had written this description already in a separate post I made, but will be copying it here as well: Founded and lead a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for variety of causes via annual musical concerts, with the last 2 events focused on contributing to schizophrenia (5 years and counting); founded and led another charity aiding developing nations via Save the Children fund (6 years); extensive leadership and volunteering with UBC Department of Physics and Astronomy (8.5 years and counting); long-term ER volunteer and volunteer trainer and program coordinator (8.5 years and counting); long-term St. John Ambulance volunteer and Divisional Administration Officer (2000+ hours over 5 years, and counting); independently provide guidance and support to immigrants and families as they adjust to life in Vancouver/Canada (9+ years and counting); lots and lots of capacity to work with others including skin cancer research/holding workshops for high school students across Metro Vancouver, volunteering with med students and residents via UBC Department of Emergency Medicine, working closely with refugees and youth with physical and/or intellectual disabilities, and more (combined 3300+ hours); and lots and lots of diversity including clinical research as a volunteer, shadowing pediatric surgeons, toxicology research as a volunteer, epigenomics research at Michael Smith Labs, loads of piano and competitions, oil painting, and more. I also work 3 jobs right now, 1 full-time and 2 part-time jobs; full-time is being a research assistant at UBCH working on a project focused on treatment-refractory schizophrenia (over 2 years); part-time jobs include tutoring students in grade 4-12 in math and academic reading with a company, and also tutoring for the MCAT with a company. 1 Publication (1st author) on the application (had a poster publication/presentation on June 7th which couldn't be included unfortunately, and a few are expected to come soon). Lots of awards (mainly from high school) and one high performance activity for winning multiple awards with St. John Ambulance. The intention of this post is to try and help people down the line, so that's why I'm including lots of details. Interview: I finished my interview initially feeling good about my answers. I had a terrific interview experience! I felt each interviewer was well engaged in my responses and discussions; they all smiled and nodded as I was answering questions and follow-ups. But then the 3-month period started and man oh man oh man was I second-guessing myself... I kept doubting my answers and my confidence started to drop a little bit each week that had passed. I knew at minimum I did 5/10 stations that I would categorize as "good" and at absolute most 8/10 stations. But overall, especially leading to D-Day, I was completely unsure how I did, but I don't know if I was being too self-critical or not. At the end of the day, I still overthought everything haha. Turned out to be okay I guess! I would like to sincerely congratulate everyone who received an offer this year and sincerely congratulate in advance those who will be receiving offers from the waitlist! It's an overwhelmingly amazing feeling that I get a chance to be in class with you folks – I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you as we finally set to make our dreams become a reality . For those who didn't receive the news they were hoping for, I can definitely understand how you feel, believe me... Disappointing news can be demoralizing, but let me tell you that you were selected to interview for a reason; you all have incredible potential so please keep your chin held up high and do not allow, even for a single moment, a decision to define who you are. As my case can further add to the supporting evidence, persistence is absolutely key.

    Felt I should add my stats in here because I’m super stoked and would want someone like me who was applying to see this... 2013 was my first application to medical schools in Canada, 2019 was my 1st interview at UBC. Accepted, VFMP (1st Choice) TIME STAMP: 11:56am PSTEarly or Regular Deadline: RegularAGPA (if applicable): ~83MCAT: 124 in CARS, 513 overall. Geography: IP Educational background: BSc and MSc (Thesis) in basic science , plus some Continuing Ed. ECs: Not an Olympian. Didn’t have any publications from my Master’s degree until after the June deadline, but some poster presentations. My weak GPA didn’t get me on the Dean’s Honours List. BUT I had years and years of service/volunteering/philanthropy, student governance and policy work during high school and university years, working in marginalised communities in BC and Quebec, experiences from my life that let me be in leadership roles outside of school, finding a true pride being a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community, and having made genuine connections with people that supported me over many, many years and were so thrilled to be verifiers (and making me cry seeing their genuine excitement when I told them I got in). Honestly, it took a village to raise me and they were all included in my application. Interview: I worked a full-time and part-time job while prepping for interviews, but all I can say is that I spent NUMEROUS hours working with friends, colleagues, anyone who I could find that wanted to spend the time to give me honest feedback to prepare. I wanted the input of non-applicants (I wasn’t here for the biased opinions and shadiness, and that’s the T), and I went in feeling great. I read articles for 5 hours a day to understand what was going on. I listened to podcasts while I worked. I watched the evening news before going to bed. Unfortunately, getting to the interview day and walking up to the first station, it was an out of body experience that I didn’t anticipate and my anxiety got the best of me. I know I had brought enough into the conversations, but it wasn’t at my best — however, I was happy to know that it was enough. Having low grades and a threshold CARS score was really pushing me to prove my worth in the interview and I did (and I’m so proud of that). The acceptance email comes and the grades no longer matter, the number of times I tried and wrote the MCAT no longer matter, the years of failed and rejected applications no longer matter. I’m looking forward. Forward to a new chapter and new beginning. Getting into medical school is easy for some with the grades and the privileges, however, without those, it’s full of hurdles. Jumping over enough of them will eventually get you to the finish line. One yes is all you need.

    Refus: score MEM trop bas

    Hey @haenurplaza, Je pense que ce n'était pas du tout personnel, ou par rapport à toi ! Il faut savoir que les évaluateurs doivent rester aussi neutre que possible et donc éviter toute expression, ce qui laisse souvent à penser qu'ils sont froids ou contre toi. De plus, il ne faut pas non plus oublier que le but justement des MEM c'est de te faire douter, alors peu importe ce que tu dis, ils auraient réagi de la même façon selon moi... Alors voilà ! Je voulais juste te dire que ce n'est pas facile, mais il ne faut pas que tu laisses entrer ce doute là dans ta tête ! Si tu as su par toi même que ce n'était pas pour toi alors soit, mais si c'est ton rêve, ne ferme pas tout à fait la porte simplement à cause de l'expression des évaluateurs, parce que ça fait partie du processus ! Et pour tous ceux qui ont reçu une mauvaise nouvelle également... Keep your head up, soyez fiers de vous et la prochaine fois, impressionnez-les ! Vous êtres tous bons et capables hihi ! Je vous souhaite que du bon pour la suite !

    Result: Accepted at IMP (Island Medical Program) (First choice <3) I am 99% sure I will accept my offer but I will wait until I hear from Ontario schools in order to make the most informed decision Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA: 93% ish? MCAT: 521 (127 CARS) Year: 4th year BSc ECs: Diverse and unique, PM or creep my old posts to learn more! Geography: IP but undergrad in Ontario Interview: I flew in late the night before, had to run around the student residence desperately looking for an iron and board cause the flight ended up wrinkling up my suit, then realized I forgot to pack my cosmetics and toiletries so I ran to Shoppers Drug Mart to purchase these at 10PM, then realized no food places would be open before 8AM on a Sunday morning on campus so I had to schedule an order for this greasy A&W breakfast on UberEats, then I didn't sleep well because I was woken up by students partying at the residence where I was staying, then at my interview I was a nervous wreck for the first 3 stations and to top it all off I fucking RIPPED MY PANTS while trying to pull them up during the MMI and I just prayed that no one would look at my butt and notice a hole LOL... Moral of the story: prepare everything in advance before an interview, and even if the circumstances aren't ideal, have faith that somehow you will still be able to fake it and make it <3

    Waitlist Support Thread 2019

    Congrats to those of you who have been accepted!!! I wish you all the best I thought I would start this thread for those of us who are in limbo (waitlisted) to keep track of how many of us have been waitlisted and to keep each other updated on whether you have been accepted off the waitlist or decide to accept an offer else where!

    Refus: score MEM trop bas

    Je comprends qu’on est tous frustrés (moi aussi, étant parmi les premiers à recevoir le refus), mais le fait d’écrire des commentaires péjoratifs sur le comité d’admission ne nous aiderait aucunement à recevoir une offre d’admission ni à mieux performer dans les MEMs dans le futur... come on guys, you can be better than that

    Did not think I would ever post something good here... Honestly thought I had a better shot in Ontario than UBC. Rejected pre-interview from UBC for 3 cycles but interviewed elsewhere. This is my 4th cycle. To those who did not receive ideal news today, please don't give up! Timestamp: 11:56 PST Accepted VFMP (1st Choice) Early or Regular Deadline: Regular AGPA: 86.6% (Last year AQ 25) MCAT: 131/128/132/131 Year: BSc Hons 2017 ECs: Please see previous posts in the interview offers thread for further details or PM me. Clinical research coordinator for 3 years (2 abstracts, 2 papers in the works, all 2nd author), BBT barista for 4 years, cat shelter volunteer for a year, owned a restaurant for a short while, freelance makeup artist since 2012, various minimum wage part-time jobs, since 2009, recreational sports - nothing with achievements of sorts, was VP of a social club in undergrad... not a lot of volunteering tbh. I did fill out the extenuating circumstances box. PM for details or dig through old posts. Other than time spent at my CRC job over the last 4 cycles, nothing else changed in my ECs. I just wrote them differently. Was rejected pre-interview in 2015 with NAQ of 21, 2016 with 17, 2017 with 25, and finally probably just made it over the threshold this year with maybe a 27 or so. Geography: IP Interview: I absolutely bombed 1 station. It was my last one, the interviewer just didn't care anymore, and I focused on the wrong part of the question for too long. Probably did mediocre on 2-3 of them, particularly if I felt like I couldn't relate a personal story to it. Some of the stations were on topics I was already very passionate and had strong opinions on so I had an already thought out answers for. Some stations I just had facts to bring up. It was difficult to really showcase yourself at UBC compared to other schools but I guess that's the challenge. I'm happy to chat if anyone wants to know more. Just drop me a PM. Will also be looking to hire a replacement for my current job, so if clinical research in a hospital is something you're interested in, and you're in Vancouver, look out for a posting through UBC Careers (external) or PM me.

    Médecine ou médecine dentaire?

    Je n'ai jamais envisagé médecine dentaire, mais je peux te parler de la médecine. Sur le plan pratique : Il est certain que si tu as toujours rêvé d'un horaire stable, il faut t'enlever ça de la tête pour devenir médecin. Bien que le choix de la spécialité a une influence, la majorité des disciplines s'accompagnent d'horaires atypiques et chargés. Si c'est une spécialité qui t'intéresse, comme Elgar l'a dit, certaines sont très convoitées et difficile d'accès; mais rien n'est impossible. Ça dépend aussi tellement de ce que tu veux faire! Tellement de choix qui s'offrent à toi. Perso, l'adrénaline de l'urgence, c'est quelque chose qui m'attire énormément. Chaque milieu/spécialité à ses propres caractéristiques et ça rend le tout très varié. Il est certain que deux journées dans la vie d'un médecin ne se ressemblent jamais. Pour la médecine familiale, il y a plein d'alternatives qui peuvent être très satisfaisantes (tournées sur les étages de médecine, obstétrique, urgence, GMF, ...) En région, les médecins généralistes font souvent plusieurs de ces milieux, selon leur préférence. Il peut être difficile de se trouver un poste au début, alors la plupart des médecins débutent en tant que «dépanneurs». Bien que ça les amène à voyager dans plusieurs hôpitaux, ils ont ainsi souvent le choix de leur horaire. Par exemple, je travaille avec une DOC à l'urgence qui fait 10 jours en ligne et qui prend le reste du mois en congé pour être avec ses enfants. C'est à sa convenance, selon les besoins des hôpitaux pour lesquels elle fait du dépannage. Et son salaire top 190 000+ net par année. Encore là, ça dépend de l'hôpital et du système de paiement. Si le médecin a un bon roulement, et que dans ce milieu il est payé au nombre de patients vus, la paie sera plus grande. Sinon, il y a le côté humain de la médecine qui est hors du commun et magnifique. Les médecins aident, soignent et traitent des patients souvent vulnérables à cause de leur maladie/condition de santé. Ils font la différence sur une base régulière dans la vie des gens. La reconnaissance qu'un patient te donne après qu'il trouve que tu l'aies bien soigné et que tu te sois bien occupé de lui, ça n'a pas de prix. J'ai l'impression qu'il faut le vivre pour le comprendre. Juste pour ça, ça vaut la peine de faire médecine selon moi. Pour être médecin, il faut être une personne qui aime avoir la responsabilité sur ses épaules. Les médecins prennent des décisions parfois difficiles et tout n'est pas toujours évident (diagnostic, traitements, démarche à suivre,...). Il faut être capable de parfois vivre avec une dose d'incertitude dans les actions posées, car tout n'est pas toujours noir ou blanc (pensons au diagnostic différentiel)! Si tu es une personne de nature stressée, ça peut devenir épuisant comme travail. Aussi, il est certain que comme médecin, tu es toujours extrêmement stimulé au niveau intellectuel. Il faut faire des liens, associer des symptômes à des conditions, etc. Et quand tu rencontres un patient avec une pathologie rare, c'est vraiment plaisant. Le texte est long, mais tout ça pour te dire que ça va vraiment prendre une réflexion de ta part. Parle à des médecins que tu connais et des dentistes. Demande leur de te parler de leur quotidien et évalue ce qui te convient le mieux. Puisque je côtoie des médecins à journée longue, je peux te dire une chose : tu dois être passionné, car sinon tu risques de vite devenir cynique et perdre ta motivation à aller travailler. Selon moi, c'est un des plus beau métier, mais il faut tripper. J'espère que ça t'aide un peu dans ta réflexion.

    Application Médecine Vétérinaire 2018

    Salut a tous! Petit message pour partager mon expérience et le fait que le Casper joue pour beaucoup. J'ai toujours eu des notes suffisantes pour entrer en vet. 33,7 a ma sortie du cégep (avant le recalcul des cotes qui m'a fait monter à 35,?) et mon premier refus. J'ai ensuite fait une année en bio a l'udem, je m'en sors avec 4,3/4,3 ce qui m'a donné une cote de 36,... (Je ne retrouve plus le courriel) et deuxième refus. J'ai changé de programme car au final je n'étais pas fan de biologie et cette année je suis allée en ergothérapie (métier génial en passant). 3e demande en medvet et cette fois ci c'est la bonne! J'ai été acceptée! J'ai reçu le dépôt et le courriel d'admission!! Le Casper joue donc pour beaucoup et dans mon cas il a joué deux fois en ma défaveur. Il y a tout de même moyen de s'améliorer. Je m'étais pratiquée, ne négligez pas votre vitesse de frappe! Préparez des situations sur vous (une fois où j'ai été un leader, une fois où j'ai fait preuve d'empathie, une fois où j'ai dû prendre une décision rapide, ...), faites des pratiques pour rentrer dans les 5 min et faites lire vos réponses à vos proches pour voir s'il y a des choses qui les "choquent". Des fois on écrit des choses et on ne se rend pas compte de ce que ça laisse paraître. En gros, cest de la bullshit que de dire qu'on ne peut pas se préparer!! Je n'ai jamais eu l'impression de me démarquer avec le Casper et de prouver qui je suis alors que je sais que j'ai toutes les qualités pour être vétérinaire. Je ne sais plus trop où jen vais avec ca au final mais pratiquez vous pour le Casper et si vous sentez que le Casper nest pas une bonne méthode d'évaluation, je suis d'accord avec vous mais ne vous découragez pas, vous finirez par y arriver aussi! Bonne chance a tous, pour maintenant et les années a venir!

    With a 325 M line of credit, I think this will really augment the self-care aspect of medical school. We can all agree that every student needs their own private jet and yacht to succeed #self-care. Right now, I just could not picture taking anything less than 400 million for my line of credit, but with the 500$ Amazon card, I am tempted to settle for a lowly 325 million LOC. I guess the penthouse I wanted will just need to wait.

    PharmD udem vs laval

    PharmD UL Horaire typique | les horaires changent chaque semaine, donc good luck. Habituellement, on a 1-2 cours par jour. Ça arrive souvent d'avoir des journées off. Examens | Se font sur ordi, donc importance d'avoir un laptop qui répond en tout point aux critères de la Faculté. Pas obligatoire d'avoir un Mac. Habituellement des examens à choix multiples et/ou avec quelques questions à réponses courtes. Dans certains cours, les examens sont à développement. Habituellement 2 examens par cours, donc 50%-50% de ta session. Il y a des ÉCOS de fin d'année. La charge de travail est élevée, c'est sûr, c'est un doctorat. Par contre, ce n'est pas impossible si tu es sérieux dans tes affaires. Il y a beaucoup de matière, donc le dernière minute, faut oublier ça. Comme Floralilia a dit, les notes ne sont pas courbées. A= 90. A-=85. Structure du programme | Des stages à chaque session. La Faculté s'occupe de jumeller les élèves à un pharmacien, mais tu peux aussi faire tes propres démarches. Tu peux les faire partout au Québec (Montréal, Sherbrooke, Québec, Gaspésie, Grand nord si tu veux), tant que le pharmacien acquiert une accréditation de l'uni. Habituellement, pas de cours pendant que les autres (ceux pas dans ta vague) sont en stage, sinon 1-2 cours durant la semaine ==> quelques temps de congé bien apprécié. Première session = 16 crédits, sensiblement toujours autour de ça, bien sûr dépendant de tes cours crédités. Facile de se faire créditer les cours à option et un cours à la première session peut être créditée facilement, surtout si tu viens de Biomed/Biochimie... On a des sessions d'été et des stages aussi durant l'été. On commence sérieusement les cours de médicaments à l'hiver de la 1ère année, donc certains trouvent la session d'automne plus plate. https://www.pha.ulaval.ca/fileadmin/Fichiers/Documents/Etudiants_actuels/cheminement-regulier-doctorat-pharmacie.pdf Pédagogie | Principalement des cours magistraux en grands groupes, mais aussi beaucoup de cours en petits groupes, surtout dès la session d'hiver de la 1ère année. Quelques labos de galénique (confection de médicaments) à l'automne, 2 labos de chimie à l'hiver. On a aussi des labo de simulation (vraiment le fun si tu aimes la pharmacie) dans des fausses pharmacies sophistiquées à l'université, durant tout le doc. La cohorte est séparée en 26 groupes de 8 personnes et ces groupes sont réunis en communautés de 32 étudiants. C'est pas mal ces gens que tu vas suivre durant tous tes cours en petits groupes et travaux d'équipe. Voilà (ça c'est ma perception des choses, en étant en 1ère année. Peut-être que certains éléments ne sont plus vrais rendus en 2e-3e-4e...)

    I have literally taken a "basket weaving class" (it was a 300 level applied indigenous arts class). It was brutally hard because you had to produce detailed, finicky, time-consuming products every week using skills you just learned. I am an artist personally and a 98%+ student in my university program, and that course was hard. I received a 99% in my chemistry class and only about an 85% in this class. There is a weird implied assumption that certain degrees are less challenging and are therefore less worthy for medical school. It is only a perception that they are "easier". People are drawn to what they are good at; most science majors would struggle in most art classes. I personally think that every program is going to require very different, challenging skills, each of which can be an asset to medicine. For example: A music major has to rehearse hours and hours for their "easy" Small Ensemble class, which also rehearses 6 hours weekly. Their schedules are booked solid with physical commitments to others (i.e. they must be present, in person). They have to master the skills of self-discipline and time management. There is no "cramming" for a recital or sleeping-in/skipping an orchestral rehearsal. If you do - you fail. A business major needs to be able to communicate and work with others. They take complex information (i.e. Tax legislation) and simplify it for clients/users. Some classes have 50% of their mark or more based on group work. They need to learn strategic planning, risk assessments, and alternative comparisons. Creative writing needs to come up with unique, inspired ideas ---- all the time! That would be exhausting. I could go on and on. The point is, every single one of these programs offers a unique set of "challenging" skills that not all of us can do well, if at all. More importantly, these skills are all valuable in medicine. You may be a rockstar in the biochem lab, and someone else can think of unique creative solutions, and someone else is amazing at communicating with patients. Win. Win. Win.

    Result: Accepted IMP (1st choice) Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Timestamp: 11:39 am PST AGPA: 91% MCAT: 518 (128 CARS - can't remember other sections) Year: BSc 2017 Geography: IP ECs: Competitive sports and some coaching, 5+ years of youth mentorship, music volunteer activities (soup kitchen, church, etc.), research assistant for a couple of labs, a couple poster presentations, job in medical clinic for 2+ years, volunteer/job at kinesiology clinic for 1+ years, several other non-medical related volunteer activities. Geography: IP Interview: Third time interviewing at UBC so felt familiar and confident going into this one. However, break station was at very end so definitely hit a wall (metaphorically thank goodness) with 2-3 stations left. Spent a lot of time learning about myself as a person to prepare for interview and also cleaned up interview and presentation skills. Below average interviews the past two years. A year ago I was receiving a rejection letter after going through the worst time of my life due to unexpected family trauma. Felt like the world owed me one to let me into med school only for that door to slam shut in my face for the second year in a row. This year, I received an offer in my preferred location with my wife cooking up our first child due in September. For those that didn't receive good news today, I'm truly sorry and you deserve to be angry, upset and exhausted by this process. However, know that these 'rejection' years can be some of the most amazing and important years of your life. At the end of the day, medicine is a job, not your entire life. So enjoy your time before med school while you can! I'm sure most of you will be breaking down that wall next year.

    Timestamp: 11:56 PST Result: Accepted - VFMP (1st choice ) Early or Regular Deadline: Regular AGPA: 83ish MCAT: 522 - 131/131/130/130 Year: B.A. 2013 + 2 years sciences ECs: Definitely what got me the interview. I have had 13 jobs dating back to when I was 15, one of which was quite impressive and I got a phenomenal reference from. I also was heavily involved in the arts for quite a while and I definitely had a lot to show that I have leadership qualities. I also think it was pretty important that I included 3 significant life history items that were very stressful/unique. It can feel awkward using that kind of thing, but I feel it's very legitimate because it directly relates to who I plan to be as a physician (omg I'm going to be one of those). Geography: IP Interview: To be honest, after the interview I thought I was going to get in. Several stations were on topics that I am passionate about and have discussed with friends many times. To all of the non-trads out there, I feel you. It takes a lot time to get everything together to be on this path, and low GPAs etc etc can really make you feel inadequate. My biggest piece of advice is to own your narrative and make it clear in your application; UBC makes this really possible so try to tell them who you are! I am really proud of myself, and I'm so looking forward to meeting you all. For everyone who was rejected, please know that admissions committees do not get to determine your worth, and that we are all in this together. I was rejected flat out from every other school, so I am just so grateful and very aware of the randomness of this process.

    Application Médecine Vétérinaire 2018

    Bonjour tout le monde Quelques précisions du bureau des admissions aujourd'hui. Les offres sortent par vagues jusqu'à la fin mai (ce que l'on savait déja). Cependant, l'agente m'a précisé que les vagues sont aléatoires, ce qui veut également dire que ce ne sont pas nécessairement les meilleurs candidats qui recoivent leurs offres en premier. Aussi, les refus continueront de sortir tout au long du mois de Mai .... Bonne attente à toutes et à tous

    Accent mem

    lol n’importe quoi Comme ça a été dit déjà, c’est probablement simplement que Montréal est une ville plus diversifiée à la base, alors les minorités ethniques qui y vivent ont plus tendance à y rester. Il y a beaucoup de gens issus de l’immigration dans les facultés de médecine, que ce soit à Montréal, à Québec ou à Sherbrooke. Faut arrêter d’inventer des raisons externes ridicules comme celle-là pour s’expliquer un refus. Les évaluateurs de MEM sont formés et sérieux. Il n’y a aucune discrimination ethnique. J’encourage activement tous les candidats intéressés par médecine et provenant d’une minorité ethnique à déposer une demande d’admission et à ne pas se fier à certains posts de ce thread.
