    How much time did you lose? I think this should be considered in your evaluation. Think about whether you should contact admissions regarding this issue.

    Dean's List/Honours

    Yeah of course, but that may mean having to study hard enough to get 90s (sometimes/often more). If it comes easy to you by all means go for it, it won't hurt. But it's not a bad idea to spend the extra hours on building a good CV, shadowing and figuring out what you wanna do, or even just taking it easy,

    It does not matter for residency purposes, your time is better spent elsewhere

    Yeah dude you really need to disclose both so that was a really bad move :/ Why didn't you?

    Law to Medicine

    There have been a non-negligible amount of students at McGill who completed a law degree or practiced law prior to medicine. I believe @la marzocco is one of them and can maybe give you some advice!
  7. Yeah it's out of date! The advisors on this list are theoreeically supposed to be the most up to date and knowledgeable on the offers you're eligible too. But of course always check here too Feel free to switch and just let them know that you weren't confident in your previous advisor given the several discrepancies you noticed. These ones are supposed to know their stuff.

    Physician political orientation

    No strawman. Doesn't it sound ridiculous to be an engaged citizen on a particular issue yet vote against its interests to further your own individual ones? Isn't it a betrayal to the cause you supposedly believe in or the people you've committed yourself to help? You can rationalize it by saying voting has little impact, yet you still find some spare energy to waste by casting your ballot according to your own personal interests only. Good for you on agreeing with your war zone refugee partner about the effectiveness of voting. Why you would bring them up I don't know, but I'm not really interested in partaking in the pity olympics here, and didn't bring up my background for any other reason than to support the point that I don't need that much money to live very very well, and that perspective is an important one to have. I'll ignore the condescension in your posts and invite you to consider that perspective next time you decide to vote for a party that threatens the vulnerable but preserves your interests. Good luck! You sound like you still have to work on your reading comprehension skills and sense of humour.

    Physician political orientation

    I really think this argument is laughable. You can't go and volunteer at some refugee-oriented organization and vote for a party that wants them deported at the same time. You just can't. Early in my training, not as early in life... I obviously don't agree with everything the liberals and NDP propose. I vote based on impact on the most vulnerable. I don't come from a very well-off background and I'm content with the salary I will be making, because it'll be much more than anything my parents ever made, pay cut or not, and I think that perspective is an important one to have. I agree with you and there are indeed reasonable people on both sides. I respect people on both sides, but moral consistency is paramount.

    Physician political orientation

    Is that why I said that they don't believe in anything? Because they don't vote the way I want them to? What I said is that they don't vote according to their own beliefs, which indicates that they don't really care much about those beliefs. I stand by that. Donating a few dollars to ease one's conscience won't really change that.

    Physician political orientation

    Yeah you don't actually believe in anything, I just want to make sure you're aware of that and accept that fact.

    Physician political orientation

    ?????? you realize their "beliefs" impact policymaking, right? That's ok to you, as long as you know you don't hate the gays, the brown neighbors and you have some sense of assurance that lifestyle won't be potentially threatened?

    LoC refused, advice??

    What?? You're a Canadian/PR accepted to a Canadian med school, right? Half the med students in Quebec come out of Cegep and a good chunk of those don't have a credit history. They still got one. Shop around man, it's TD's loss.
