  1. As a current Dal student, I would have to respectfully disagree. While Dal may be less internationally known than UofT or McGill, I'd argue that reputation means next to nothing for Canadian med schools outside of "impressing" your family and friends. Dal has a very comparable match rate to the rest of the schools in the country, and consistently matches to competitive specialties across the country. I'd also argue that we likely have more opportunities than bigger schools. Although Dal may not have as many super specialized physicians, they have residency spots in almost every discipline. We start half day/week electives (that we can choose ourselves) in first semester of first year to help us explore different specialties. With a smaller class size, you also don't need to worry about fighting as much over limited learning opportunities. Although you may not have the opportunity to network with as many physicians, you're able to build stronger relationships with the ones you do work with since you'll be spending more time with them. OP, I think really it comes down to length of program vs support system and which you value more. I'm sure you'll fair well at either school! Although not an OOP, the ones in my class and the one below me speak very highly of their choice to come to Dal.
  2. MUN just pulled their clerks but Dal's are still in. Any other schools left with clerks still in hospital?
  3. I'm pretty sure they round up GPA to the closest 1 decimal point (3.67 should round up to 3.7 which would make you eligible). I would definitely check with admissions though
  4. Just a heads up. For everyone who gets interview invites, the photo you send in is the photo they'll use for your student id if you're accepted, so make sure it's a good one! Good luck!
  5. Unfortunately, my advisor told me that she would be unable to give the deal to any other clients. If you're still trying to negotiate for it, pm me and I'll let you know what I did
  6. Yes, in my agreement, it specifically says that the prime - 0.25 will stay the same during repayment
  7. Your email will be setup as yournetid@dal.ca, and it is very easy to change to whatever you want it to be. Also, once you make the change with the Registrar, it should update the whole system so your new married name will be consistent across the system. Also, congrats on getting in!
  8. I'm pretty sure you will need to show the Registrar's office a piece of government id with your new last name on it in order to have it changed, so I wouldn't worry about it for now.
  9. What year was it signed?: 2017 Bank Name: Scotia Interest Rate: Prime - 0.25 (will stay the same during repayment) Grace Period after Graduation from Residency: 12 months after residency/fellowship Credit Card: Amex Gold/Momentum Infinite Visa (had to negotiate for the momentum) Additional Perks: Whole $275k upfront, overdraft protection
  10. You should be fine because of the rounding. I would probably email admissions just to be sure though.
  11. Had my meeting with Scotia today. They said the prime - .25 would continue on into repayment and it wouldn't need to be converted into a term loan (they said this was a recent policy change). They also offered me $200k during med school + $75k for residency vs. the $275k for med school from TD. Strangely, I would also be dealing with 2 advisors at Scotia (1 for the LOC, 1 for the bank account/cc's). Is there even any advantage to that?
