  4. 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...
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
