    hartk48 reacted to MedP111 in Countdown to decisions [doomsday]   
    I just visited the admissions homepage and I believe this is new:
    "Final decisions for the M.D.,C.M. program will be released: The week of March 26, 2018. Exceptionally, M.D.,C.M.  & PhD Candidates, and M.D.,C.M. for IMGs(4-year) candidates will be notified March 19th, 2018."
    It seems that there are no plans for early decisions this year. Just posting this here so that you folks don't waste a whole day refreshing Minerva on Monday!
    We're nearly there, and going into the last week I want to wish everyone the best of luck I agree with @HoopDreams that, in most cases, a rejection says nothing about your potential as a physician. When close to 300 competent individuals are pitted against each other, the difference between the successful and the unsuccessful candidate is indeed marginal, and luck inevitably will play a big role in the outcome. But you will all eventually make it, may it be this year or the next, or the one after that. More importantly, while we should all appreciate how much we want this acceptance as a sign of our conviction for choosing this field, we should also realize that medicine is not the end all be all, even if it might feel this way. Be excited for what the rest of the year holds regardless of what happens on the 26th. Nothing is ever worth putting life on hold for.

    hartk48 reacted to Bambi in Female advice needed, thank you   
    Be respectful, polite and let her know that you would like to get to know her better. In other words, be direct but not overwhelming. However, be prepared for her to tell you she is in a relationship. Anything is possible. Go for it.

    Just ask for her number and keep your cool. If she doesn't want to go out with you, act like if it doesn't matter (even if your dying inside).

    Find a place where you're not going to be interrupted by other people, then start small talk etc, show you're interested.. then when the silence hits, tell her you have a 4.0 GPA and 132 CARS. She'll ask you for your number

    All we know is what med admissions office says: keep waiting until you hear. Your application is valid all the way til April 8th or whenever they send you a rejection letter which is probably the case for 99% ppl still waiting including myself.
    Also, please direct these comments to appropriate thread not this one. Not meaning to be picky but for people who are still waiting, any activity on invites/rejects thread causes a mini heart attack..

    congrats but I am mildly annoyed I haven't found a way to squeeze in a rick and morty reference yet with any of your posts. It is kind of frustrating actually

    Accepted 
    GPA: 4.0
    MCAT: 511 
    Casper: crap, wrote it 14 hours after my mcat. Tried to find the middle ground while pointing out both sides of the problems. Didn’t get Mac or Ottawa so I’m assuming it wasn’t the best.
    EC and Essays: definitely my strong side, your basic premed 101 volunteerism, worked minimum wage jobs from highschool till application, academic based scholarship and very strong research background
    Interview: was a blast. Loved every second of it and definitely the best part of this crazy premed journey. Be ready to think on your feet, think critically and back up what you mean. Reflect on your experiences, know “contemporary” issues in medicine and the Dal curriculum.

    Use the 300pg KA notes. It’s the most up to date of the 3 sets of notes developed. Lot easier to understand if you have a weak P/S background.
