    Beware that if you buy a luxury car, you'll be that medstudent/clerk/resident that some will laugh about because it is an aggressive demonstration of your wealth (perceived, projected, or otherwise). I echo the leasing thing someone above posted about. LL (the frugal one lol)

    U probably don't need it for any school rn. I think they understand the situation. No Canadian dental school needs it I think.

    If you can afford it and will use it, then buy it. People who buy expensive stuff just to park it there and show off are the type that draws the ire. Every time I see someone with a Steinway salon grand parked in their house I ask if they can play some Beethoven or Chopin for me, 9/10 times the best I get is twinkle twinkle little star lol.

    Shadowing hours during COVID

    Getting a shadowing opportunity right now is a little challenging if you’re looking for an offline one. However, there are virtual shadowing options available if you’re up for it. You can still try connecting with a healthcare professional if you’re acquainted with one or you can try searching for one online on platforms like healthcareshadowing, globalpremeds. Apart from offline, there are a couple of virtual shadowing options as well, you can try that as well.

    MEM 2021?

    Sherbrooke aussi vient d'annoncer que non pour le Snapshot, alors honnêtement je pencherais plus vers encore cote R/CASPer cette année, ou CASPer seul, quoique je suis pas nécessairement d'accord avec le fait de donner autant de poids à un test en ligne où toutes sortes de variables peuvent rentrer en jeu. Pour en nommer quelques unes, il pourrait y avoir la vitesse de frappe, ou le fait que certains candidats passent leur CASPer à des vagues plus ou moins compétitives (par exemple, un candidat qui passe son CASPer en octobre sera comparé à des universitaires, tandis que lui qui passe en février sera seulement comparé à des collégiens puisque c'est seulement les collégiens qui passent le CASPer durant cette période-là, alors lui qui passe son CASPer avec les collégiens auraient plus de facilité à se démarquer), certaines personnes s’expriment beaucoup mieux à l’oral qu’à l’écrit, il y a beaucoup moins d’occasions pour parler de soi-même et de ses expériences de vie comparé aux MEMs, etc.

    MEM 2021?

    Même avis, je ne pense pas qu'il y aura des MEMs cette année. La solution facile est évidemment x% note/x% CASPer, mais peut-être qu'ils trouveront un autre format d'entrevue à distance, vu que les MEMs doivent être difficile à adapter en format à distance. Pour le snapshot, je ne penserais pas que les facultés aillent vers ça, ulaval a déjà dit non sur sa page Facebook, mais bon tout peut changer.

    MEM 2021?

    3 possibilités, je pense: 1 - MEMs par Zoom/Teams (l'idéal, mais très difficile à organiser, voire impossible étant donné les limitations technologiques) 2 - CASPer Snapshot 3 - CASPer traditionnel Les entrevues en personne sont absolument hors de question. Même les facultés de médecine sont réticentes et prennent 10000 précautions pour leurs examens d'habileté clinique en personne pour leurs étudiants (on ne veut surtout pas une éclosion dans les facultés), sorry mais je ne pense vraiment pas qu'ils soient ouverts à organiser des entrevues et à y inviter n'importe qui cette année.

    Not to freak anyone out, but one thing to bear in mind is the cutoffs do (apparently) fluctuate based off the pool, and it's possible with other schools seeing admissions spikes, that Queens (without the strict rules of Western, and opaque cutoffs) could have attracted significantly more applications this year, leading to everything staying relatively similar. If you gain a couple hundred more applications, some of them actually competitive, it may not move the cutoffs that much as you would expect with the addition of a new screening tool, particularly if this year is a test-run for CASPer. But in the end, no one knows, so it's all speculation until the invites come out...

    Yea.... they can't cut down the applicant pool too much, so for GPA + MCAT to be used with the same cut offs as previous years PLUS the additional screen of CASPer would most likely result in a severe decrease in the applicants under consideration for an interview (guestimation). So, with a GPA + MCAT + CASPer evaluation, two or all of these factors have to lighten up to maintain the same number of applicants under consideration for an interview. All speculation, but I think this makes sense logistically (assuming that their goal with CASPer was to emphasize different applicant strengths rather than solely cutting down the applicant pool - latter is less likely).

    true - only positive thing is at the end of the day they still need to interview roughly the same number of people - the overall pipeline cannot reduce the number too much. Usually at worst the cuff offs remain the same and new scoring system is added to the end evaluation but that seems unlikely with CASPer as its entire point is a screening tool rather than an evaluation tool directly.

    IPS = médecin de famille

    J'en conviens le parcours des médecins et des IPS est différent. Et il est clair que le contingentement est différent aussi. Cependant, dire que le parcours du médecin est « beaucoup plus difficile et exigeant » est quelque peu condescendant à l'égard des IPS qui compte autant sinon plus d'années de formation qu'un médecin de famille.

    2020 Interview/Invite Thread

    I'm OOP, haven't heard anything so far and don't see steps 3a and 3b. Could be that they are about to send out invites then?
