    RBC vs Scotiabank for LOC

    I just knew one of my friends got that same deal at a different branch so I told them, either I can get it here or ill go get it there (this was in Ottawa). My options were either their basic Signature Visa or Infinite Avion though, Platinum never came up in conversation. Not sure what the difference between Platinum and Infinite Avion is tbh...

    RBC vs Scotiabank for LOC

    I was an existing customer at RBC and last year I got the Infinite Avion + VIP package + all fees waived until residency. Just recently got my interest rate reduced to prime - 0.25%. been pretty happy with them so far!

    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    For Research Fundamentals we were put in groups of 6-8 with a researcher leading the team (we got to rank who we wanted to be with, some are also clinicians and some are pure researchers). We had to meet 4 times, and there was some variation in terms of the course structure for each group. In mine, we each picked a paper in the researcher's area of interest (aka also ours since we chose the researcher we wanted to be with) and then evaluated it, followed by proposing our own research question/methodology to fill in the gaps of the paper and then presenting this to the group.

    Medical Equipment

    Two different companies came to present their products to us, and each provided a catalog to chose products from. You can pick whichever stethoscope you prefer, from the most basic model to Cardiology IV, depending on budget/preference. That being said, many people bought their own stethoscopes online, you don't have to order as a group. Hope this helps!

    Pre Reqs In Time For Nov 1

    I think what the link is supposed to point out to you is that prereqs have to be completed by January 15th of the year you'd be starting your studies, not by the application deadline. I am starting at McGill med in the fall and one of my prereqs was only completed beginning of January 2016
  6. last year the calls started going out on the Friday after the deadline. it can take up to 2 business days for OMSAS to forward responses to the schools. hope this helps!

    Different Decision Codes?

    One of my verifiers was contacted either the week before interview invites went out or the week right after, they couldn't remember the exact time
  15. I had a tour of the whole campus, took around 40-45 minutes. My interview time was 1:45pm and I finished at 6pm.
