  1. On Jennifer fongs financial thing she said that they recommend july 30th now
  2. I wish we had one!!! It would be really fun to do and have family come celebrate.
  3. Maybe?? I'm going to UBC and they instructed us to buy white coats- I don't think we have a white coat ceremony! Yeah everything I read made the ipad seem like a really smart investment.
  4. Has anyone- who didn't previous go to UBC or have a UBC student number- received a student number? If so where did you find it? I heard it will show up on OAS but I'm not sure where to loook on OAS.
  5. Following!!! so far I've got: Short white coat, stethescope, dress clothes, scrubs for anatomy lab, an ipad, a case to hold all my charging cables
  6. I too would appreciate this as an incoming UBC student !
  7. Why are you going Scotia Bank??? I am really torn between RBC and Scotia. I have no idea about the Doctors of BC scholarship but I read on the MD Finances page under the scholarship section that we can apply for entrance scholarships in August. Also good news for anyone getting student loans, apparently because of COVID we are eligible for a higher amount than most years (I think it is 3000$ more) so that will be helpful.
  8. I sent mine through the mail about two weeks ago and it still has not updated/they haven't got it.
  9. I did :)))) IP applicant 3.75-3.8 ish gpa and 507 (I can;t remember if its 507 or 508 lol) MCAT. Had good ECs but honestly nothing crazy. Dont give up!!
  10. I thought the same! I watched a really good video by kharma medic on youtube about using an ipad pro for medical school (I'm a first year med student, but I'm assuming it would be similar for dent). I decided that this would be a valuable tool for me but I ended up buying the ipad air instead because using this device purely for school, I don't need the extra capabilities that the pro has for the extra 500$. Hope that helps! You can find the youtube video I am referring to by searching kharma medic ipad and itll be the first video.
  11. Will we still get backpack day do we think?? Also, we don't have to sign up for the College of Physicians and Surgeons licensure yet right? They send us an email to do so?
  12. Wow, you just might be my twin haha. I did a big old meditation before my interview, felt amazing about being myself in the interview even down to wearing something I genuinely liked (coral blazer and window pane print pants) and kept my nose stud in too! Congrats on your acceptance!!
  13. Thank you So for travelling for example I spoke about gaining cultural experience, understanding different cultures, etc. and also becoming more independent and resourceful through travelling. For hiking I personally only put that on the rural part of the application where I spoke about my passion for hiking and what I get out of it and speaking to it as a stress relief. For intramurals I think that is a good opportunity to speak about being a team player and the importance of collaboration. Just remember, everything you have done, you have gained some type of growth or experience from, sometimes you just have to realise it. For titles I think that that in the instance you described I would put your recent title to be honest!!!
