  1. I can see why you're frustrated - a condescending/patronising attitude towards another profession would annoy me as well. I don't condone any of that but after hearing perspectives from other healthcare professionals, I think many more students considering medicine SHOULD also be taking a hard look at dentistry and considering it as a potential career alternative. Dentistry is similar to medicine, and may offer additional advantages (ie: more independence, not restricted by the gov't system, potentially better work/life balance, ability to work with patients longitudinally while also having a surgical hands-on aspect). I would imagine a reason why dentistry may be that 'back-up option' (instead of 1st choice) is because it's rarer for people to be passionate and know off-the-bat that they want to work solely with teeth.
  2. Accepted IP/OOP: IP OMSAS UG cGPA: 3.90 DAT: 22 AA/21 PAT Year of Study: 2 years post-bachelors (currently working) I'm really surprised. I didn't think the interview went well - questions sometimes felt vague/non-specific and I didn't feel like the content in my answers demonstrated who I was as a person. After careful consideration, I have declined this offer for medicine. Best of luck to those on the waitlist!
  3. Accepted IP/OOP: IP OMSAS UG cGPA: 3.90 DAT: 22 AA/21 PAT Year of Study: 2 years post-bachelors (currently working) I had a lot of varied and unique experiences that I could draw upon in my interview. Really enjoyed it! After a lot of careful consideration, I have declined this offer for medicine. Best of luck to those on the waitlist!
  4. Accepted @ St. George Time stamp: May 10th, 9:19 AM IP/OOP: IP Undergrad cGPA: 3.90; wGPA: 3.93 MCAT: 12PS/12BS/10VR Essays: Spent ~1 month working on them + ABS. Made sure every word was important. Had people take a look and critique essays. Revised many, many, many, (many) times. ECs: Non-trad undergrad program, currently working. Involved in various ECs while I was in school (student council, tutoring, frosh week, research projects). Spent a couple years working in a medical setting (+ 3 first author pubs out of it) in addition to leading some new community initiatives outside of work. Interview: Felt really good about all the stations. Also met with a group of interviewees for ~2 months for mock interview practice. Despite stereotypes about premed students, met amazing peers who gave helpful and constructive feedback. You guys rock! Year: 2 years post-bachelors degree
  5. I'm interested as well to practice with all of you
