good luck avenir! hope all goes well with you Avenir's long time post appreciator
4. Physics Q+A 2009

Hi Law, The 30-60-90 triangles are special triangles with angles of 30, 60 and 90. What they allow you to do is calculate Sine and Cosine of 30, 60 and 90 easily by using simple trigonometry relations. Only specific triangle 'length' sides give a triangle of 30, 60 and 90. So essentially the goal is that you can remember the side lengths and the angles of the triangle vertices you should easily be able to calculate the Cosine and Sine (and even Tan) of common angles such as 30, 60 and 90. An equivalent triangle is 45-45-90. And that allows you to easily calculate the Cosine and Sine of angles of 45, 45 and 90. However the special triangles only give you answer in fractional form. So answers like root(3)/2 or root(2) So in summary, the only need for special triangles is to calculate cosine and sine of specific common angles. However for the MCAT, I recommend you just memorize to 2 decimal places the specific angles. Like sine of 60 is 0.87 No need to worry about special triangles as long as you got the common angles memorized.
5. only one copy of transcripts needed?

only 1 copy required for dalhouise. the only ones that require 2 copies for transcripts are Alberta and Manitoba as far as i know....
6. What are my chances! Suggestions/comments appriciated!

apply to queens/uwo. they look at 2 yrs i believe. you would rock for them.
7. missed transcript deadline -- should I not apply then?

quoted from their website" All graduate students must have an official transcript submitted to the Admissions office on or before the Application closing date each year. (for 2009-2010 this date is November 2nd)." You might be confusing the early interview deadline and subsequently the early transcript request. So if you wanted early interview then you would have to submit the transcript earlier.
8. just got my results for MCAT....my chances for admission 09/10?????

yea...do apply! You just never know and its hard to predict who gets invited for an interview good luck!
9. Finding a Dentist to shadow

I would imagine the easiest would be to shadow your own dentist. If not then become a patient to them first and then kindly ask....
10. What's everyone doing? (Vol II)

LOL....avenir strikes again -- well said!! :D
11. Applicants for 2010

so there's no 'essay' right for Calgary? Just a small paragraph for each of the top 5 things that made an impact on you?
12. Sticky ethical question

life is precious, and while it is worthwhile to involve economics to improve health-care, economics can not be involved in deciding who lives and who does not. For the people who say that we should go ahead with euthanasia, they might want to put themselves in the shoes of the parent. How are you going to justify it to them? We live in a free country and that -- in my opinion -- means the right to live too.
