    And moi. Another week of waiting. I’m glad Rebecca said in the email that when the class is full she’ll send an email out though. Previous years just heard nothing back

    Queens Waitlist 2018

    Pretty much lined up a job and a place to stay for next year already haha, I guess 3rd time isn’t the charm for me.

  10. Pepcid my friends. I dont know how it works (really should look into it) but its the only way I can make it past 2 drinks without turning beet red, calling it a night due to major migraines, and being totally mentally sober, but cant function otherwise. If anyone wants to meet up for drinks, and venting about the stress going into Tuesday morning, hit me up
  11. Anyone have plans for what theyre doing the night of the 7th? I'm seriously considering just drinking my worries away so I can sleep through the night. I'm on pacific time so I'll probably find out first thing in the morning, which would make or break my day :/

    Cost of Living

    Can't offer too much insight on to which program would be better suited for you, but for sure if your budget is less than 1.5k for rent, go far out away from Vancouver main... My parents rent out a 3br townhouse in Guildford (city centre ish) of Surrey for $1500. Complete with a small yard and playground for kids. The S/O currently pays $1350 for a 1br apartment near VGH. Pretty sure its also not pet friendly? That area of Surrey is about 45 min drive, 1-1.5 hours transit to VGH/BCCH, but a 15 minute drive to Surrey Memorial. There are many fairly convenient bus routes though, I used to commute from there to UBC everyday for 5 years. Wouldnt recommend, but if thats what budget allows (and you prioritize the furchild to have plenty of space at home) I would say thats a better bet) I know of a few friends of friends who ranked abbotsford as their top choice (and matched). Bought their first home there already and are all set for residency (and I guess their future overall). But that far out you'd definitely have to drive in to Vancouver, and TBH I would not ever do that commute on a daily. Too stressful.

    Queens Interview-March 25

    Last year I didn’t really prep because life got in the way. Needless to say I bombed it. I feel like there was more variety in the MMI station types though. This year the MMIs felt fair although I expected them to be harder. I’d say the panel felt quite similar.

    Queens Interview-March 25

    I applied 3 times. Didn’t interview the first and interviewed the next two years, but my application didn’t change much, just got a degree and a job between the 2nd and 3rd time :/
  15. I would research into the schools you plan on applying to. Do they look at highest score, or most recent (is it worth a risk to retake?) The schools I applied to looked at highest, so it didn't matter that I wrote mine 4 times haha! I went in with 522 and a 3.8 with no interviews anywhere but Queens so it could be worth a shot trying if you're not applying somewhere that looks at most recent score (and you're worried about dropping).
