  1. Not sure, but I think either during orientation week or after it? Don't worry too much about it! Enjoy the rest of the summer, you'll spend plenty of time with your coursework once school starts! The first course, Intro to Medicine (ITM) is designed to get you back in the groove of things and adjusted to medical school.
  2. From your post history, looks like you got accepted to Schulich, congrats and welcome to the family! Some of the courses will have practice quizzes for you to do, those are generally pretty helpful in first year. There's also a pre-clerkship workbook that'll be sold sometime during the Blood course, it's the second one you do, first course is Intro to Medicine; that has some good questions as well to do. Other than that, you can use USMLE resources too. There's a significant overlap with the Canadian curriculum (especially by systems), and you can always skip the stuff that our courses didn't do. I didn't use UWorld or USMLE-Rx myself, but people do swear by them in the States.
  3. No, CBME (Competency based medical education) is being implemented everywhere in the US & Canada - it's the new system that's "in" right now. The holistic approach to applicants to medical school is new and we'll see how it goes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    SWOMEN Status

    That is pretty odd they don't ask about the SWOMEN status anymore in the Western app. Try contacting them to see what's up?
  5. From an M1 who's just a couple months ahead of you guys - all the best! I know it's a stressful night, it felt like the longest night last for me too. I guess that's a common feeling we'll all share. If there's one thing I can encourage you to do, it's to journal about this or write a future letter to yourself about what you're going through. Good or bad (trust me, I've been through 2 applications cycles) - you'll appreciate you did that and you'll back on it fondly. Best wishes!
  6. I wonder if living costs in Toronto make it even in the end
  7. That's such a fantastic way of putting it, I'm definitely gonna be saying that to people!
  8. Hi everyone! I'm wondering if there are some resources out there that have practice questions for systems-based learning? I'm at Western (MS1) and our school doesn't provide much of that. We have some weekly quizzes here or there, but I was hoping to have more. I find I learn a lot from that. Similar to how doing practice questions for the MCAT helps. Our school is teaching us the systems in blocks. So we have Blood coming up starting this week, then Infection & Immunology starting in November, and so on in the new year. I've heard UWorld for the Step 1 has really good questions and answers, but is it systems based? Are there any other resources I could use? Hopefully I was clear. I couldn't find anything on this subject either. I appreciate any and all help!

    Question about SWOMEN

    The high school you graduated from is either in SWO or not. If it's not, you're not SWOMEN. If it is, you're good up until interview day. Interview day is when they'll verify it from your transcript that you did 4 years at that highschool which is in SWO. I'm not sure if I understand your question?

    Question about SWOMEN

    On your interview day, you bring a transcript of your highschool, that would show you did your 4 years in south western ontario. If you lie about being SWOMEN, once they find out (by just looking at your transcript), you'll be disqualified.
  11. found an adviser in the London area, thanks!
