    Still no update from some med schools?

    From what I have heard Queen's interviews were completed last weekend, and I think McMaster was mid March. But definitely should have heard something one way or another.
  2. Yeh that's crazy, should be much busier for you next year if this one doesn't work out this year.
  3. And don't forget to get your mind and body in sync. Regular exercising, good diet, meditation and mindfulness practices will help you a lot, especially if yu can keep these good habits through your last days prior to interview. Best of luck with the rest of your preparations and your upcoming interview :-)

    Music For Studying?

    Lot of great playlists on YouTube and Spotify. Personally, find Max Richter mixes pretty good for atmosphere while studying or trying to concentrate :-)
  5. Glad to see the tone of the responses here. Couldn't agree more with them :-) Tough job, lots of skill development and commitment demonstrated. This experience doesn't have to define you totally but it can illuminate aspects of you which can be valued by those schools/programs you are applying to.
  6. Ugh doesn't sound too healthy :-(
  7. Thanks for all of the above. Found this post on SDN which i also found helpful in getting my head around the MMI: https://www.studentdoctor.net/2017/08/top-8-strategies-to-prepare-for-and-ace-your-multiple-mini-interview-mmi/

    Contemporary Issues

    The final one might come up with some of the threatened effects of the min wage hike in Ontario with companies starting to pull back on benefits, some of which are directly to health provisions etc.
  10. Yeah I noticed that with friends who went through the bar. Basically it was like training for something completely different from their professional experiences up to that point and they all found it a real challenge, despite being pretty much ahead of the curve on everything else law related.
  11. I don't think being "white" brings much disadvantage and, as a "white" person, many, many advantages. Perceptions like those you overheard are usually without substance, they are just that perceptions :-(

    The plot thickens - we need some more thorough investigation here.

    Contemporary Issues

    Issues around 2 of the UoT essays/topics this year: Discuss the role of listening in cross-cultural communication to better understand the perspectives of people of different backgrounds. Write a letter to an editor of a newspaper to express your support of Canada's role in promoting women's reproductive health in developing countries.
