  1. How would they know that some people are waiting for other schools though if everyone paid their deposit? Also - can you explain how DalOnline works and where i can see this info. I have no idea what's going on with Dal's system

    Lecturing/prof during M1

    Following! I was hoping to do this as well. I don't think it would be that tough to teach a few lectures in our areas of "expertise".

    Bad interview

    God I hope they boost post interview
  6. Highlight in the first screenshot is saying they'll give you points for a grad degree when reviewing your application. Second screenshot is saying they don't care about your grad marks for your GPA. They don't contradict each other.

    Bad interview

    omggg sammeee I'm usually good with interviews but i was so rambly i can't even remember any of my answers. I just get flashbacks of parts of an answer at random times. Was tearing up walking out of clinical skills afterward. Currently feeling supppeerr sad about it overall - I've been struggling with focusing on day to day life and responsibilities as a result.

    Your insights are highly appreciated

    Agree with everything above. This says nothing about your suitability to be a doc - it's just how the system is and you can 100% improve. One thing I'd add is limit the amount of prep you do with other applicants. I found that to be the least effective use of my time. Find med students who have succeeded and seek help from them. I'm more than happy to do some mocks with you this summer and provide some critical feedback!

    Class Culture

    Yay! That's awesome to hear! I hope our class is the same.

    Class Culture

    Hi! I'm likely going to be a Dal 2023. Can any current or past med students at Dal comment on what the class culture/environment is like? Both positives and negatives?

    Supplementary Application Help

    I got in this year as an OOP and 100% agree with the above. I based my essay on the CanMEDS roles. The only other thing i would add is that I not only stated the outcome, but I very concisely reflected on what I learned and how it relates to medicine. It's important that it reads smoothly (kinda like a story) rather than "i am a professional because this. I am a leader because this." Think about the person reading and scoring your essay. They're probably tired and busy. Would they enjoy reading it? Is it engaging/fun/unique to read? Another thing is find a someone who is suuupppeerr critical and can give you very honest feedback. I had my friend who had applied and gotten into a few professional schools the year before review it twice and rip my essays apart, which I think was key to them ending up great.

    Accepted 2019

    Y'all they're prob coming next week. Nothing we can do at this point and stressing over it won't do any good. All the best to everyone else who interviewed and I hope we get great news!

    BHSc vs BMSc

    You can do an undergrad in literally anything, be it BMSc to philosophy to opera performance. Please decide what you do your undergrad in purely based on interest, not what will look best to medical schools. Rather, I imagine taking an unconventional route makes you stand out more during the application process, making you more competitive. I agree with the above posters that difficulty of the program is also something to consider so you can get the highest GPA possible.
