  1. Hey guys, I'm at a bit of a crossroads. I love anatomy and I think I would enjoy taking on the role of a diagnostic expert and combined with the potential to lead a reasonably busy lifestyle and the ability to get a job without much hassle think that radiology would be a good fit for me. However, I've always wanted to become a neurosurgeon since as long as I can remember and in my heart of hearts I feel as if I would regret not going down this path even if it meant going through hell to get a job and enduring an unfavorable lifestyle in the end. Was anyone here ever in my boat and had to make a decision between radiology or surgery and if so which did you end up pursuing and why? N.B. I realize there are very few of any neurosurgery trainees that frequent the forums, if anyone could maybe provide a second-hand recount of a neurosurgery trainee/neurosurgeon that you know who had to negotiate this split in the decision tree, feel free to do so!

  3. Hi guys, I'm an incoming M1 and am really drawn to the field of neurosurgery based on my shadowing experiences and academic interests. I was wondering if any of you (neurosurgery residents/fellows/staff preferrably) are able to offer advice on how to become competitive for the field come CaRMS? I think it is in the middle of the pack based on match rate data. I want to hit the ground running coming into med school so what kind of activities would you guys recommend to bolster my CV for NSx in particular? Thanks!
  4. I also checked in via email and they confirmed my spot in the class of 2023! Thanks for the suggestion!
  5. Hi, I was wondering if you guys received any follow-up e-mails confirming your submission of the deposit and signed consent form.
  6. Result: ACCEPTED- ST. GEORGE wGPA: 4.00 MCAT: met cutoffs ECs: diverse and varied, award, leadership and research heavy with a good mix of long term and short term meaningful commitments! Essays: spent 2 weeks, heartfelt and could resonate with them on an intimate level. Sought proof-reading from current MD student. Interview: Really conversational interview, felt like it was able to capture my personality well! I felt two stations were outstanding, one was good, and one was average. Year: 4th Geography: IP Will be accepting, easily the best day of my life!
  7. Do you think this would have caused adcoms to red-flag OP?
  8. I would assume those are the number of offers sent initially because UofT usually overaccepts by 50 to account for the number of declined offers. Then, additional offers are sent out to accomodate people on the waitlist, ~20 or so.

  10. I too am quite curious. I received a rejection from Mac with a 4.00 GPA and a CARS score. I prepared diligently for CASPER, I assume its my CARS that tanked me?
  11. It depends on your GPA and CASPER which have to be sufficiently high to offset a weaker CARS score (I would assume a near perfect GPA and an above average CASPER score would be necessary).
  12. I meant to say thats my combined academic average across 3 years (since I'm a 4th year applicant), not sure if that's classified as AGPA, I attend an Ontario uni which gives percentage grades.
  13. GPA: 4.00 CARS: 125 CASPER: Felt I articulated my answers well and was confident in them (but who knows?)
