  1. Yes, I have mostly leased before! Think that's what i'll end up doing Which barn did you lease at?
  2. Thanks for the answers everyone! I'm definitely not going to buy a horse now. It's been my lifelong dream and I've saved for a while for it but it doesn't seem at all feasible. I think I will ride (3x/weekish) in preclerkship and when I can after. I'll have my dog until clerkship as well and then send her to my parents in Vancouver :'(
  3. Hey guys! I'm a UBC student from Vancouver going to be starting med school at Schulich in the fall. I'm a competitive horseback rider and am hoping to buy a horse and be at the barn about 4 hours 3-4 times a week. I also have a young golden retriever who needs a lot of care/exercise. I'm a pretty active outgoing person who goes out with my friends quite often, travels, hikes, etc. Just wondering whether you guys in med school think that maintaining this lifestyle is possible/realistic while having enough time to really focus on and excel in school. If there are any hunter/jumper riders on here, any recommendations on good coaches/barns nearby? Also is purchasing and leasing out my horse 3 days/week a bad idea (too much of a commitment). I know these are weird questions but, thank you!
  4. Time Stamp: 12:18AM EST Result: Accepted!! (London) 2BY: ~3.94 MCAT: 13BS:10PS:11VR Interview: Made the interviewers laugh a couple times, they asked questions about my EC's and seemed interested. Still convinced myself it was super average/bad during the wait but think it went really went in hindsight. Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!!!
  5. No email yet, I'm assuming that means a rejection. Thought i'd prepared myself but this is still devastating.
  6. Does anyone know if Schulich offers any scholarships based on merit and not financial need? My parents probably make too much for me to qualify for the bursaries and I don't want to take anything away from people who need it more but I am going to be paying for most of my schooling myself and a scholarship would be great. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hey guys, Just wondering if there is any benefit to interviewing during the early vs. late weekends for places like Western. Thanks!

  9. Hey guys, I know this is last years forum but I just found out I missed the UBC interview cutoff by 0.3 points. I'm wondering if anyone knows how Western/Queens actually look at OOP applicants? I'll list my stats here, can you guys give me some feedback on my chances at Western/Queens so I can start planning other options. BC resident Major: Human Physiology and Microbiology Latest 2 years: 3.935-3.94? MCAT PS/VR/BS: 10/11/13 (34) EC's: 1 neuroscience paper, 3 years wetlab research in ASD's, clinical research in mental health and addiction (BCMHA/VGH) and ortho (BC Children's), VGH ER, Full time animal sanctuary worker in South Africa for 3 months, Paeds hospital in India, volunteering for a non-profit that provides medical care to rural Indian villages. Competitive horseback riding, worked for kaplan as MCAT instructor, worked as a server, receptionist/assistant at dental office, 3 years in therapeutic riding, working on another paper in ASD, lots of shadowing, etc. My first 2 years at uni were terrible because of some home/health issues so my UBC average was only an 86.93. Queen's/Western are my only shots and I'm not sure if they'll even look at me being OOP :/ Thanks so much in advance!!
