  1. Hello everyone, Let me start off by saying I am not a gunner and I am not in it for the money, power, or prestige. However, your motivation doesn't make or break you as a competitive candidate. I am seeking some insights, information, tips that will help me maximize my chance at my goal of becoming a plastic surgeon. A little bit about me - I interviewed at couple Ontario schools this cycle and hopefully I might be able to matriculate. For a very long time, I wanted to be a plastic surgeon because I've always been interested in aesthetic side of things and what determines whether we perceive someone as beautiful/attractive. Only relatively recently I found out that plastic surgery is a hyper-competitive specialty, and while it bummed me out, it is still my dream. I just have so many questions like do I have to start seeking opportunity starting first year? What electives do I take? But at the same time, I feel like I don't even know enough to ask the right questions..
  2. I've heard that Mac uses z-score to calculate your score. Is this true? And if so, that would be they would use the mean value NOT the median value to compare right?

    I think the problem is the unique nature of my activity. It's for "Self-directed Learning and/or Problem-solving/Critical Inquiry". Without giving away too much info, I was a member of a school team and we would participate in academic contests every so often (about once every 3/4 months). However, we would prepare for these events on our own time and on our own discretion. So even though the time spent performing this activity is like you say "Done once every 2 to 3 months", would it be reasonable to put my accumulated time commitment as something higher? (Say 3 to 6 or 6 to 12 mo.)

    But from that example, you don't know how many days worked per week and how many hours worked per day? I don't know what's so clearly stated about it and why you are so agressive lol. According to that, I could have worked for an hour once a week from June to August for 3 years that that would still be 9 months HENCE MY QUESTION.
  5. Hello For one of my activities, I took part once every 3 months or so during school year for all 4 years of my high school. I am just wondering what the accumulated time would be because there's two ways to look at it. One would be to actually count the days that I spent doing the activity (less than 3 months) and another would be to count the duration that I was part of the team (more than 3 years)
  6. Hello all, With an introduction of new "Abbreviated Autobiographical Sketch" portion, I was wondering whether I should apply i.e. write eight 400-word essays. From what is written on OMSAS, it sounds like Western is going to be using GPA and MCAT as cut-offs this year. What are the chances that CARS cut-off lowers? Or are essays just going to be an another screening process for those who meet 3.7 GPA/129 CARS cut off? I just want to hear what everyone thinks before start writing these essays as it's a pretty big commitment! Thanks all.
  7. It's actually 32-32-32 system.

    It is possible but unlikely. Like if you literally got the perfect score on Casper. But otherwise prob not.
