  1. hey everyone, I was just wondering if anyone has insight into which schools are recommended for ophtho electives? And in what other specialties should you have electives in? Do they for sure have to be related to surgical fields such as plastics or ENT? I was also wondering if anyone has info regarding applying to Quebec schools for ophtho if you're not a Quebec resident? For example, are there any return-of-service agreements or anything? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey! My overall score was about 78 I really hope it works out for you!
  3. Received an offer off the waitlist from Dal 2 days ago, and just declined it today due to offers elsewhere. So the waitlist is still moving! Hang in there guys and best of luck
  4. Hey everyone, I am fortunate and extremely grateful to have received multiple offers this year and I'm currently having trouble deciding between UBC and U of T, similar to others who have previously posted. I was just wondering what the current weekly schedule would be in the first year or first 2 years of the program? I was having trouble finding information on this on the U of T website. I just wanted to visualize what each week would look like in terms of lectures, clinical, etc. and how it compares to the curriculum at UBC. Thanks in advance!
  5. I feel the same way, it's also been really hard to focus on studying for exams lol
  6. Did you guys get a reply btw when you emailed them about keeping your name on the waitlist?
  7. Do they ask if you have any questions at the end of each of the 4 interviews, as they do in panel interviews? Is it encouraged to ask questions for each interviewer?
  8. Whoa how would someone with 83-85 be waitlisted and not get in?? Makes me wonder how high the cutoff was for the 9 spots...
  9. Do all OOP applicants have to submit proof of citizenship? I'm also an OOP applicant but I didn't get an email...
  10. thanks for the info! yeah I really wish they had sent out the email earlier. Just wondering, about how many questions did you prepare for the panel portion?
  11. thank you for the reply! how long were the mmi and panel portions btw?
  12. Hey guys, apparently the whole interview process is supposed to last 3.5 hours, but they haven't sent out a follow-up email or anything about how long the actual interview itself is, so it's difficult to plan out when to attend the other activities planned out during the interview weekend. How long are the MMI and panel interviews each? And does the MMI consist of 7 stations? I'm aware of the confidentiality agreement, which is why I'm not asking for any specifics or anything, just how long the interview portions are so I can better plan out the day. Thanks in advance.
  13. Hey everyone, for those of us who applied through the CNFS stream, are the offers sent out in mid-March? If that is the case, how long would we have to accept or decline our offer, i.e. do we only have a week to give our answer or would we have until May? I'm just worried since I'd be waiting for replies from other schools in May, and was wondering if accepting the offer for CNFS would mean that any offers from other schools would be revoked? Thanks in advance.
  14. Hey everyone, I was just wondering if anyone knows at what times the interviews are usually held each day? I know we're supposed to schedule our interview on Feb. 7th, but I just wanted to know in advance to have an idea of what times are available.
  15. anxious to hear back, idk how i'm going to wait another month lol
  16. Hey, you don't need to notify UBC if you change your courses unless it's an English course, if you look at section D under the Transcripts section of the Help Guide, it says: D. Are taking courses this fall or spring (September 2016 to April 2017) Enter the courses you plan to take. You can take different courses later without notifying us (except for English courses used to satisfy the English requirement—if you change your mind about which English course you will take, you must email us to tell us the new course name, number, and institution). If these courses are at a new institution (an institution you have not started attending yet, so you cannot submit a transcript), please email us so we can change the transcript status for this institution to “Not Yet Required.”

  18. It's actually due at 9pm EST tomorrow, it says on the website: https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/submitting
