  1. Hi Applicants! Current Dal med student here. For the past 2 years I've been offering editing services for both the Essay and Supplemental form. Whether you're looking for help on a first draft, or want someone to help polish your final draft, I am here to help I can't stress enough how important having a strong Essay & Supplemental form for the Dal application. It's not just about the experiences themselves, but how you describe them to illustrate what core qualities you've strengthened and how they will make you an excellent candidate for medicine. It is arguably the easiest way to bump up your score! While in previous years I've worked on applications right up until the deadline, I am beginning clerkship mid-August and will only be offering these services until that time. Feel free to message me for details and pricing
  2. You "enroll" in the program after you've been accepted. It basically just means you sign up for the classes on DalOnline. There's a list of things you need to do once accepted (vaccinations, enrolling, criminal record check, paying deposit) and this is just one of those steps. Since it's not due until I think you start, it makes sense that a lot of people haven't done that yet. It's more a measure of who is being keen, not the amount of offers sent! You can also drop the offer after enrolling if you get another acceptance. So basically, this number tells you nothing unfortunately.

    CaRMS CV

    Does anyone know how the CaRMS CV works? For example, do you create your own Microsoft Word-like document or is there an online application where you simply fill in the blanks under specific categories (like Med school applications). Also, are activities limited to things done while in med school or can you include things from before?

    Probably not. Carolyn is the main gal for the Admissions Office. It seems only 1 case of "possibly next week" has been reported, for what it's worth..

    Oh dear, I was trying to help by posting what I heard but I may have only added to the confusion! I was speaking to staff from Admissions office last week who told me it would not be the week of the 4th, that they expected to have them out by the week of 11th or 18th. However, since that conversation, others are posting here that they called and were told it could be this week, so it's entirely possible they have since changed that prediction. Only way to verify I guess would be to call and see what they tell ya!

    11th
  7. Hi, It may be a bit early (or maybe not at all) but I am fairly certain I will go for a particularly competitive specialty. I’ve heard that “gelling” with programs and making a good name for yourself is important for matching, so I’m trying to think of ways I can stand out early. Do you think it isna good idea to make your face known by regularly attending Grand Rounds/ networking? Any my other suggestions to become familiar with programs and be remembered?

    I spoke to Admissions last week and they felt it would be the week of the 11th or 18th, but hey, who knows! Maybe they are working overtime because of all these calls hahaha

    Totally fair! I just remember reading into every little variable and agonizing over speculations which did not help me at all. I just heard about it not being next week and wanted to share so you can have a little less anxiety about it. Best of luck to you all ❤️

    This is from Admissions, not my opinion. I’m sure they’re able to tell you the same thing if you asked. Just try to relax and worry too much about it guys!

    Because they're not ready yet! Each year is a bit different so there's no 1 week or date they come out unfortunately.

    Won't be next week if that helps with the anxiety! Not knowing is the worst but hang in there

    Conferences

    I know presenting at conferences is a good way to boost your CaRMS application, and to demonstrate interest in your preferred field. However, is it worth adding conferences as an attendee? For example, if it is at a more prestigious conference in the field you are hoping to enter, does that reflect well on you?

    Scholarships

    (Med 1 here) in my year there were applications for scholarships, and a questionnaire for general scholarships and bursaries that you are considered for automatically. This includes budget, debt, expenses etc. I believe the earliest I heard for mine was like October/ November
