    is my med dream alive?

    if you continue getting 3.9+ and have at least 2 full time years like that then for Queen's and Western you'll be good, GPA wise. Ottawa try and aim for 3.95+. Mac will definitely be dependent on your CARS and CASPer, and Toronto it's hard to say because it'll depend on your weighted GPA if you're eligible. Best to look up their gpa calculations on the website.
  3. Each school is different look at their requirements online.
  4. I looked at some of the programs on CaRMS, and yes it would seem they require opthalmological reports. Idk what the specific requirements are , unfortunately, so I hope someone else can help you there. I copy and pasted a few of the schools requirements below. UoT: The ophthalmological report should include visual acuity (corrected and uncorrected), refractive error, stereo vision, colour vision, ocular muscle balance/motility, and health status of the eyes. Queens: We require that you obtain an ocular examination with an ophthalmologist or an optometrist that indicates your best corrected visual acuity including corrective prescription documented, your stereo-acuity, your colour vision and any other relevant details from a general assessment. Alberta: An ophthalmologist report stating the candidate's visual status, including stereopsis and color vision, is required. (Please note that the ophthalmologist's signature on your report is considered certification)

    Interview Invites 2018/2019

    Doc's like their studies and evidence base : https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10459-016-9739-9?wt_mc=Internal.Event.1.SEM.ArticleAuthorOnlineFirst https://www.researchgate.net/publication/51439735_Extending_the_Interview_to_All_Medical_School_Candidates-Computer-Based_Multiple_Sample_Evaluation_of_Noncognitive_Skills_CMSENS I am no fan either, but just gotta roll w/ the punches. People have gotten interviews with not much written in the past compared to others, just some are really good writers I suppose. Maybe try a company to see where you're at. Good luck on the rest of your apps.
  6. Mac is always early, the rest of Ontario schools are end of Jan so like last week (although NOSM I forget). Ottawa and queens usually do the same day and it’s been the last day of Jan a few years now lol.
  7. It isn't rolling (UoT does rolling interview invites). It's also email. I saw a mac med student post that emails will be sent out next week, so keep on waiting. It'll come when it comes.
  8. Late Jan. For these types of questions y’all can check the past forum topics on invites and see the trend.

    Co-op for Clinical Experience

    GPA>MCAT>>>ECs. You don’t need co-op to get into medicine, you need amazing grades. Focus on why you couldn’t maintain the needed average and change your study habits so your grades are in the 90+ range. Interview skills are communication skills that can come from other work and volunteering, even team work in group projects. Life experience is the most important for soft skills.

    OHIP Billing

    Unilateral government action if I am not mistaken? Hence why we are still in this lovely pickle of trying to get a contract hah. Again correct me if mistaken. Can't say we're not gluttons for punishment.
