  1. Correct. There is a tone that goes off after 5 mins where the follow up question will be asked, and then a tone indicating the end of the station (at 7 mins)
  2. I mean that's probably a bit of an exaggeration. You will still have time do to whatever leisure/hobby/extracurricular activities you wish- especially in first year!
  3. The timing has been the same for the past few years now, as far as I'm aware!

    MMI Timing Question

    that is correct. There will be a time indication at the 5 min mark, and at the end of the station.
  5. This is correct! At 5 minutes, there will be a follow up question which you will have 2 minutes to answer. You will not be given the followup question until the 5 minute mark.

    I recommend the UBC MMI practice too!
  9. Not sure if that matters? You would just be enrolled in 3 separate courses. Your wGPA would be based on the last two years where you were full time. So I believe if your final year you had less than a full course load, your wGPA would not include those courses.
  10. Queen's does not send a confirmation email.

    Competitive GPA?

    they actually copied and pasted quite a bit from the old website.
  17. dw verifiers being contacted and interview offers are definitely not correlated

    UBC vs McGill Medical School

    Lol at least wait til you have interviews. If you’re confident you’ll get them then I’d spend this time practicing for those.

    Sounds very cool, and I'd say competitive. Make sure you write your ABS well.

    Competitive GPA?

    That's definitely competitive. It's a cutoff, not ranked.

    Reference letter due date

    November 1st! Just make sure the info is on OMSAS, and email has been sent before Oct 1
  22. I too just met with them similar to @Monkey D. Luffy. I did not give them explicit instructions re page length or anything.

    Queens ABS

    You are probably overthinking this. Think about who you are and the activities you're displaying and how they represent the qualities that you want to display as representative of yourself as a future doctor.

    MCAT Cutoff???

    126 seems to be the cutoff based on recent cycles, but no harm in trying!
