  1. Does anybody know of a decent online flashcard platform that can be used for group studying? I;m looking for a program that can be used such that multiple students can contribute to a single deck of cards, and the cards would be available for everyone to use for studying. It would be necessary for the deck to be updated in real time as soon as a person adds a new card so that everything is synced. Does such a program exist? I really like Anki but I don't think you can use it to do sharing like this, where each student contributes say 5 cards, so with 10 people, there would be a total of 50 cards. I think Anki only allows you to share your own deck with others, which is not what I want - I want to create a deck with others and have it be available for us all to study. If anyone knows of such a program please post - I just thought it would be handy for rote memorization courses like Pharmacology (and it's too time consuming to be making them all myself). Thanks!
  2. I actually really enjoyed Phys 2 and nutrition, thought they were interesting and helpful! A+'s are doable in both (well, I had Roger Kelton and Adegoke for nutrition and Tara Haas and Michael Connor for phys 2 for what its worth) Anatomy courses with Nikki Richardson is also good, she explains things really well
  3. Yeah, abnormal is an option (& interesting!), so is cognition. Take abnormal with Joel Goldberg. Health psych I think you can also take without any other prereqs. Neural basis of behaviour is interesting, but more work, and if you're in bio you can probably get permission to take it without the 2nd year prereq (I did it without the prereq and it was totally fine).
  4. Bumping up an old thread here...I'm currently in the GTA but will be moving to Guelph soon. I was wondering if anyone knows of a really good driving instructor (not school) either here in the GTA or in Guelph (for the G2 exit road test). Thanks.
  5. haha, no I actually did not apply to med this year. But I got into a different program instead!
  6. +1. For an easy to read, comprehensive review of Physics, get TPR. Their general chem is also in the same book ("Physical Sciences") so that might be a worthwhile investment to get. Their science workbook is also pretty good! (that'll give you some organic chem practice too!) For bio, I've heard Kaplan is pretty decent, but since you've done all that human phys/anatomy (human phys being >50% of MCAT biology), then I think a more concise book should do - I'd recommend EK biology. Verbal - get EK verbal (their 101 passages book) and AAMC materials (best resource out there is AAMC!!). good luck!
  7. Like others have mentioned, it depends on your study skills and personality. If you give yourself too big of a gap, you'll feel like you have more time than you really do. Too little and you might burn out. I personally think 3 weeks is ideal; you can use this time to do the AAMC exams and to go back to your weaker areas.
  8. Aw man that sucks so much. I am graduating from york this summer (just finished my second degree), and I can tell you that enrollments do NOT start in May; they start in early June. However, they will block your enrollment until you have gone to an enrollment appointment with an advisor. I can't remember anymore when I applied, but I remember the wait was not that long. York's registrar office is a really hit and miss when you call them. Once I called and a (rather rude) person told me one answer, and then I called again to double check the next day and a (much nicer) person gave me a totally different answer. Maybe try to call (again, I know) and try to see why they rejected you - did you miss a certain deadline? Or it might be possible that your grades from your first degree were not high enough, as they have like a C+ requirement I think (I may be mistaken on this though). Hope things pull together for you!
  9. Ah ok, thanks. I didn't see that anywhere on their website til now.
  10. I've been trying to access QUEST, but the page never seems to load. I've been trying last night and today but it still doesn't work. I believe I need to activate my Waterloo ID first (since I've never used it) but when I click the link for that too, it also does not load. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Thank you both!! And congrats to you NutritionRunner on getting accepted to your dietetic internship program! Hope you enjoy it!
  12. Wait, where exactly do you clerks/residents sleep while on-call in the hospital? Do hospitals have reserved rooms for clerks/residents?
  13. They are probably all booked unfortunately. The good news, however, is that people drop their spots all the time, so you shouldn't have any trouble getting a spot in Mississauga if you keep checking. I wrote in Mississauga and later in the summer there were lots of spots open (I registered for it just a few weeks before my MCAT because I kept checking). I wrote there last summer! It;s a decent place. Admin people weren't super friendly but they got the job done.
  14. Update for anyone following this thread: I got accepted into the Optometry program, so my journey as a premed/pre-optom is finally over Optometry was my backup plan but after job-shadowing a few optometrists, I felt like it was a good career choice for me. I'm going to take it that I just wasn't meant to be in Medicine. There is a light at the end of the tunnel - whether that be in med/optometry/dentistry/nursing/physio/whatever
