    So Now We Wait...

    Last year, it was close to 9am (like 8:50 and up) so it's probably going to be the same this year. I believe the office hours changed last year, explaining why it was later than the previous years! I could be totally mistaken thou! good luck everyone, can't wait to see you all in September!

    University Of Ottawa Mock Interviews 2015

    someone has to go through those emails so don't expect instantaneous answers, might take a couple of days so don't worry too much!
  9. Pour répondre à ta première question, voici ce qui est écrit dans le site web de l'Université d'Ottawa concernant la catégorie accomplissements et distinctions (http://med.uottawa.ca/premier-cycle/admissions/processus-demande/curriculum-vitae-detaille): Indiquez le genre de distinction : bourse d'entrée universitaire, prix de récompenses pour services, prix de récompenses humanitaires, prix pour service communautaires, bourses d'études sportives etc. Précisez à quel moment vous avez reçu cette distinction, par exemple : 1re année d'université et la durée. Pour ta deuxième question, idéalement, il faut un CV équilibré, donc que tu aille de l'expérience significative dans chacune des catégories mais chaque applicant a des forces différentes donc c'est difficile d'avoir un CV complètement équilibré et c'est correct!
  10. Since we signed a confidentiality agreement, we are technically not allowed to answer questions like this since it could give you a hint on the questions we got... Plus, not everyone gets the same questions so we can't answer your question with a 100% certitude. Honestly, google or read books on medical school panel interviews if you want to get an idea of what to expect.
  11. Congrats to everyone that got an interview!! Concerning the mock interviews, more infos on how and when to sign up will be posted in this forum within the next couple of days!

    Interesting Ottawa Stats

    Pretty sure it's the same for the invites vs regret for the interview, it's going to be different for the admission offer/regrets in May.

    Interview Dates

    The date and time of the interview will be included in the interview invite emails. You can rarely change the date, you really need a valid reason why you can't attend the date they gave you!
  14. From their website... (http://med.uottawa.ca/undergraduate/admissions/faq) Do you give preference to different undergraduate degrees? There is no special weight or preference given to any particular baccalaureate degree completed at a recognized university. The degree of difficulty of the program is not assessed.
  15. I just read this and I appreciate that you took the time to write this. But, I would like to remind the premed students that you do NOT need to do all of this to get accepted to medical school. So don't stress if you didn’t do that many EC's (I honestly did a fifth of what Aetherus did). I really don't think that there are two types of EC's: you do NOT need to do hospital volunteering to get in medicine, that will NOT raise a red flag... Most of the volunteering in hospitals doesn’t actually include direct medically-related activities so the ADCOM can't expect you to have that in your EC's. I never shadowed a physician but I still was able to explain why I chose medicine as a career using my other experiences. The one thing that I agree is concentrating on your grades (should always be your #1 priority) because if you don't meet the cut-off, you won't get an interview even if you have an AMAZING sketch. BUT, I find it extremely sad that nowadays, students will do ANYTHING to get good grades including cheating on exams, pressuring profs to get answers during exams, being rude and arguing with profs do get higher grades, missing the mid-terms and finals because you are 'sick', taking easier classes during the summer so grade doesn't count in the wGPA (talking about uottawa here), etc... Yes, “You gotta do, what you gotta do!” but please choose the right path, we actually need genuine and honest students to get in... Also, yes I do agree that sacrifices must be made to get in medical school BUT you still need to enjoy other aspects of your life (I know, it sounds cheezy) but I feel it's something that needs to be reminded because you will realize in a few years that you missed out on A LOT before medicine since free time will just keep declining once you start medical school. To finish, the purpose of my message is not to rent on the guide that Aetherus provided, I do believe it's helpful and gives us an example of a path to get in medical school but that's only ONE example of a path, I had a completely different one and you also will have a different one and it's fine... you do not need to be exceptional or make hundreds of sacrifices to get in. Do what you like/want (NOT necessarily medically-related) and keep good grades and you will have a good shot at getting in!
