    Dentistry vs Optometry

    dentistry!!!
  2. You will get more $ for doing it during residency and it will be more specific to your speciality allowing you to be an expert in the topic of your choice
  3. If you're interested in doing a Phd, it is much better to do it during residency than during med school.
  4. Are there any hidden fees if you open a LOC but you don't actually need to use it just to get the benefits?
  5. Good luck !! You are almost there 8 more years lol
  6. Are you interested in neurosurgery? Does the 15-17 years include your education since the beginning of undergrad??

    Rejection thoughts and MCAT retake?

    Investing in interview prep might be helpful if you are with the right coach. In general, try to practice in person with an interview coach who is an expert in medical school interviews. Practicing online is not very useful because a huge component of the MMI is how you present yourself. In addition, when you go to the actual MMIs it will feel different if you have done all your practice online. You want to familiarize yourself with the interview process and the way it is conducted as much as possible to reduce nervousness on your interview day. I went to an interview coach at a career centre who trained managers and I was given several ways in terms of how I can present myself better and I was offered admission to 4 med schools. If you will invest in MMI prep, focus on choosing the right coach. Several individuals will be admitted to med school although they might not have a stellar MMI performance so not any med student's advice will be helpful. Some individuals got into med because they have done tons of research or they have applied 3 times and eventually got in and so on...etc. You need to pick a coach who is truly an expert in what they are doing and not doing it for extra cash. You also need to develop stories for the various canmed competencies ( ex. a time when you were a collaborator, advocate, a time when you resolved a conflict). Perhaps, also join a public speaking / debate club. Take every opportunity to present things whether it is in school or at work. Also, one last piece of advice is to try to get out of your comfort zone as much as possible.

  11. I am thinking of printing my notes and writing my own notes down on paper. Or is that an archaic way of writing down notes?
  12. At a lot of schools require you to have a GPA over 3.2 or 3.3 s a min.

    No Employment on ABS

    Yes, it is not ideal that you don't have any employment. However, note that they count anything that is paid work since the age of 16 as employment.
  14. ~80 WL offers ~23 individuals off the WL are offered a spot.. so slightly over 25% of getting off the WL. But my speculations might be completely off!!

    MCAT Rewrite Advice

    Agreed!! If you are getting an interview, then in order to really maximize your score make sure you do well on your MMIs. However, if you have extra time this Summer and you are sure you can kill your MCATs, it would not hurt if you re-write since interview prep should not take you more than few months.
