  1. Premed! Are you struggling with your medical school interviews? Have you been previously rejected after the medical school interviews? Do you want to turn your interview rejections into admissions? I get it. When I applied to medical school the first time around, I had 5 interviews, but was rejected by all 5 schools. Sad ad depressed, I was lost how to to turn that around. However, I came up with a specific approach to interviewing for medical schools. Using that same approach, I again had 5 interviews the following year. The difference is that this time, I got into all 5 medical schools. Since then, I have created the NextMD Community, and the group of medical students and doctors have used this exact same method to help many premed students that have struggled with their interviews turn rejections into admissions, and they are all on their way to become doctors. So if you say YES to any of the questions about, then check out the NextMD Community, check us out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/978669245641167/ For more information, check us out at: http://www.nextmd.ca/training BOOK: If you are down to learn the system we have come up with RIGHT NOW, and you are someone who loves to learn through reading, access the book here: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DFGHZ8S We offer the following programs: A.

  2. ATTENTION: REJECTED PRE-MED APPLICANTS – DO YOU WANT TO GET INTO MED SCHOOL? READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE, BECAUSE THIS MAY BE YOUR KEY TO REALIZING YOUR DREAM OF BECOMING A DOCTOR Firstly, congrats to those who got into med school. I cannot wait to meet every one of you in the hospital and work alongside of you over the next few years and for a lifetime. To those who got rejected post-MMI/interview: Are you confused? Frustrated? Feeling defeated? Are you wondering – what did I do wrong on the interview? Can I get into med school? If that’s you, I can help you. See – I applied to med school twice. When I applied in 2009, I got 5 interviews across Canada (UBC, University of Alberta, University of Manitoba, University of Toronto, and Dalhousie University) – and was rejected by all 5 after the interviews. Frustrated, I researched and came up with my own approach to ace the medical school interview. In 2010, I applied again, and again, received 5 interviews (UBC, U of Alberta, U of Calgary, U of Ottawa, and Dalhousie University). And with my new approach, I achieved wild success, and received offers of admission from ALL FIVE MEDICAL SCHOOLS. I never thought I would be faced with the problem of picking and choosing which medical to go to!!!!! Since 2010, I have helped many students get into medical school using the same approach all across Canada. (See testimonials: https://www.facebook.com/groups/978669245641167/?ref=bookmarks) Now – I want to help you. I want you to get into medical schools. I have put my unique approach into an easy-to-follow, step-by-step playbook for you, so you can learn and use the same approach that many of my students have used to get into med schools. The book is called Master the MMI: Your Key to Success on the Multiple Mini Interview. This book is now available on Kindle as an eBook (ahead of physical print which will become available soon): https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DFGHZ8S Here is what I want to do for you: The regular eBook is priced at $9.99. However, for the next 3 days, and only the next 3 days, I want to give the ebook to you for free so you can learn the skills that got me and many of my students into medical school. What I ask of you in return, is that if you got value from this book, please: 1. Write a review on Amazon 2. Join me at my Facebook Group: MMI Mastery (https://www.facebook.com/groups/978669245641167/?ref=bookmarks) 3. Subscribe to the Instagram: nextmd.ca Feel free to post questions on the Facebook Group.

  3. Hi Premeds, I am not selling anything on this post. However, I have been working on a book to detail the approach I used for the MMI (specifically the MMI) to gain admissions to 5/5 schools that I interviewed at. The book is in the editorial stage and set to release in the next 4 weeks. I want a good name for the book. If you have a short and catchy name for the book - something that conveys an MMI approach - please PM me with the book title. I will be sending a free book as a token of appreciation to the person that comes up with the best book title that I choose to use. Thanks.
  4. Hi all. This is the time of the year when people are cracking their head over the written applications. I have previously been accepted to 5 different med schools across Canada in various provinces and am happy to provide feedback and tips on your written applications and interviews when you get them. Feel free to private message.
  5. I wrote in short and concise sentences. Had 5 admissions. Something went right.
  6. Hi Premeds, Congrats to all with interviews at Dal. It's exciting times. I am a current resident doctor at UBC. A few years ago when I was still a premed lurking around this site, I received lots of help and benefited from kind individuals who sat down with me and provided me with honest feedback for interviews. As a result, I was fortunate enough to receive admissions from 5 medical schools in Canada, including Dalhousie. As a way of giving back to the community, I am happy to practice interviews with each interested applicant for 30 - 60 mins free of charge and provide honest and unbiased feedback. Due to a full-time residency schedule, I have limited availabilities, so space will be first-come-first-serve. Send me a personal message if interested. Good luck on the interview!
  7. Hi Crispy_Dorito What's your applicant status? If i were you, I would apply. The cutoff differs year by year.
  8. Hey creatorlater, Apply. As long as you the time. Your stats are great. If you don't get in, big deal. Apply again next year.
  9. Hey jmg1234, IMisolve is right in the sense that you want to maximize all the space - meaning, maximize the space in the title AND the description. The next thing is, you want to write your descriptions in a way that not only tells what you did, but more importantly, what you learned/what qualities you possess --> and how those qualities make you a better candidate for medicine. Happy to take a look at a few of your activities and let you know what I mean. Just send me a PM.
  10. Hey totesmcgoats I think you are embarking on a worthy pursuit. If you are interested in combining medicine with research, there is nowhere better to be. It sounds like the hurdle now is just getting into medical school for you. There were lots of engineers in my class, so it is definitely very doable. You have completed a degree (grades is alright). You have had some very interesting and impressive accomplishments. If you ask me, this is how I see your situation: Pre-application: - GPA --> done and completed. unless you want to complete further educations, don't worry about it. - MCAT --> you gotta do well - extracurricular --> you have done lots already. Especially in the area of academics, research, innovation, sports. I think you likely have enough materials to potentially put together a very strong application. I wouldn't worry about having specific health-related volunteering opportunities for the purpose of accumulating volunteering hours unless you are looking to gain a better understanding of what being a doctor is about. This is where you are right now, and I would focus on getting a good MCAT score at the moment. When it comes to the applications, you are looking to set yourself apart through the personal statement, extracurricular lists, and interviews using your knowledge and experience. 1. Should I commit to different volunteering activities? I probably have room for a 5 hour comittment a week unless I forgo other commitments. Like I said, I don't think you need to worry about more volunteering for the purpose of accumulating volunteering hours 2. Do personal projects count? What about projects done as part of schoolwork? Everything counts. It's a matter of how you present it on the application. 3. I have 0 volunteer experience at a medical facility (only remotely close thing I've done is first aid and water rescue...), is this a major problem? I do not think this is a huge issue. Unless you have a purpose beyond accumulating volunteering hours, there are better ways to spend your time. 4. Some of my volunteer experiences are extensions of previous employment (i.e. I volunteer my time after my employment ends at a lab) - does this still count as volunteering? Yes. Again, what matters more is how you present it on your application. 5. Is any extra credit given on my degree that I should emphasize (taking on average 8 engineering/physics/math courses a term)? Or does it simply not matter... No. Medical schools do not differentiate between your degree. My classmates in med school ranged from regular science-based degrees to music majors. 6. What else can I do in the follow year(s) to maximize my chances? - get a kick-ass MCAT score - maintain an active lifestyle (I don't mean physically, though if you want to too, that's good. I meant you should be involved and doing things that are meaningful to you) - determine whether you meet the requirements to apply to the schools you want, and decide if you want to take further courses to meet those requirements Then, when all those are done, put together a kick-ass application and do very well on the interview. Happy to chat more (you can PM me). Good luck buddy.
  11. Hi Premeds, I am a current resident doctor at UBC. A few years ago when I was still a premed lurking around this site, I received lots of help and benefited from kind individuals who sat down with me and provided me with honest feedback for interviews. I was fortunate enough to receive admissions from more than 4 medical schools in Canada. As a way of giving back to the community, I am offering 10 hours of my time to work with 10 applicants over the next 2 - 4 weeks to provide them with honest, no bullshit feedback on their interviews. 1 hour per student. Send me a personal message if interested. Good luck on the application process.
