  1. I ended up choosing McMaster-Hamilton, so I can't speak for Windsor! But Mac is wonderful hahah
  2. Yeah, don't count on it happening. I was in the position last year of wanting London but offered Windsor off the high waitlist. After talking on the phone with the lady who called to give me the admission, she made it clear that it was very very unlikely that a student offered Windsor at this point would end up moved to London, since multiple students would have to drop out of the program after accepting their offer.
  3. Everyone gets the backpack colour according to the year you enter medical school ,not graduate. So you will get the same colour as all the other first year med students
  4. Sorry for being a noob- but where exactly on the afmc portal do I click to see what the required documents to upload are for each elective? When I click on school logos, they 4 I looked at just say to upload the immunizations form. Is that actually all that is needed? no mention of police check or anything.
  5. Hi Guys! Can any upper years suggest any great OBGYN electives to look into? In particular I would love to do a 2 week one out West but don't know anyone who has done any out there to ask if they had a good experience. Feel free to message me if you'd rather!
  6. Similarly, graduated with BSc in biology and my closest friends were in med sci or health sci, also feel free to pm me
  7. If you get a waitlist offer fairly early, you might get 2 weeks to respond
  8. Although I've only just started at Mac, I'd say you're fine to be taking a day off during the week (I know I don't tend to do much work on Fridays for example haha). However, you still need to attend mandatory courses.
  9. I got over 90% in 2200 last year without a single reading, but I heard the prof changed this year so I don't know if that will stay the same
  10. i found classics 2200 way more interesting than 2300 (Mythology was a lot more fun to learn than all the different sports the ancient greeks played, but you might think the opposite)
  11. is there a general consensus of which specialties favor strong research?
  12. Hey guys, I'm just starting out in my first year med at Mac, and I've been struggling with anatomy a bit. I never took anatomy in undergrad so I have very little knowledge coming in. I'm finding it pretty hard to learn anatomy the way it is set up at mac with the self-directed labs, and a little over-whelming. So far, when I leave the lab, I always end with a feeling that all I did was read a bunch of weird structure names and point to them on the models. Nothing feels like it is sticking unless I were to just sit there and memorize all the fancy names, which also seems like a silly way to learn anatomy as I'm sure by clerkship I'd forget again. Did anyone have a similar experience in the beginning with anatomy? I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how they found anatomy useful and the best way to learn it without having lectures provided by the school. I was thinking of ordering the Thieme atlas of anatomy and doing a lot of reading each week? Not too sure Thanks
  13. Can anyone comment on the competitiveness of Western's family med spots?
  14. Don't re-write with that! I got into mac with a 127 cars and 3.94 cgpa, you could get an interview everywhere in ontario except western with that score and with your gpa. As the above said ^ at this point its about how you write your abs/essays/casper
  15. I received one with a 93 average, not sure about what anyone else has gotten them with
  16. I ended up getting mine today guys! Side question: is our MAC ID supposed to be our whole last name followed by initials? Mine doesn't have my entire last name, the last letter of it is missing. I can't tell if it is a typo (people always leave off the last letter in my last name) or if it's just that they only take so many characters for it.
  17. Same, I'm still waiting to hear! Hopefully soon because I want to apply for parking but need the student number....
  18. A lot of courses change times/days/professors from year to year, especially if you are looking 2 years ahead. I found that 4th year courses in particular change a lot because they tend to be very specific courses. I really don't think it's something you should worry about 2 years in advance, academic counselling won't be able to do anything about it at the moment.
  19. Unfortunately no, waiting to see if I heard from Ottawa was why I waited about as long as I could to accept Mac, but hey I'm really not down about it because I'm so happy to be going to McMaster
