  2. I rarely post on here but I just thought I would give my two cents with some of the questions circling... Are Mondays the only day for regrets? Definitely not. I was sent my regrets email sometime mid-week last year (I don't remember when because I quickly deleted that horrific email, so it wasn't the first thing I saw for the next few days or weeks when checking my email), and I vividly remember that I was sent regrets at the same time as others also receiving regrets, and others receiving invitations to interview. So it certainly wasn't as discrete as some seem to have the impression of. As for how to move on after regrets (lol) we've all worked so hard to get here and are completely invested in this career choice and life choice, but at the same time I hope we are all realistic of the competitive nature of this process. You can be an excellent candidate and not get an interview or not get accepted. But I will say from my personal experience I learnt a lot. I was able to see where my strengths are, how to write and think about my life experience in a broader way, and then most importantly getting to have interviews it taught me about the process and where I could improve. This is one of the stages in our future career, try to learn from it and enjoy the process.
  3. We are all done out interviews yay! May can't come fast enough!
  4. Thank you so much for the reply and information. I very much look forward to the opportunity to work in these communities, I was just curious about the logistics of it but if your friend took her baby there must be a way to find childcare ect. Thanks again!
  5. Hi Everyone, So I have been looking into NOSMs community involvement the last few days and I have a few questions to those of you who may have friends in the program ext. First I will give some context: I am an out of province applicant. My husband is a law school student, and we have two small children. Since these stints of living/ working in other communities are quite long (from a couple weeks the first year to 8 months the third year) I'm wondering if anyone knows how far most of these communities are away from the main centers (Thunder bay and Sudbury). Also wondering if anyone knows NOSM med students who had families and whether the whole family came along or what they do?
