  1. Are you SMP? let’s hang out so can be not so lonely!
  2. Before I start something (hobby, degree, volunteer position, etc.), I like to envision the light at the end of the tunnel almost as a goal that I'm trying to get to. Not in a bad way where I'm centered on the outcome and not the process but more so just something for me to look up towards and keep chasing. Do you think that matching into the residency program of your choice is that end of the tunnel kinda goal in med school? Follow up to that, what happens if you decide which specialty you want later rather than sooner during med school and your narrative isn't as cohesive?
  3. damn it I'm gonna be at work and there's no way I'm opening it at work. Its gonna be a case of Schrodinger's admission status all day on Wednesday
  4. So that settles it, no premed101 for me until May 12 (but who am I kidding I have no self restraint)
  5. Were you applying with an above average or way above average gpa or mcat?
  6. Didn't see it on their website anywhere so I thought I'd ask if anyone knew about this!
  7. OOP applicant and completely new to the OMSAS system. I know that medical schools in Canada as a whole look for CanMEDS qualities but is there a list or anything of qualities/attributes that OMSAS specifically likes to see? I've come across it a few times where people say that for UBC "the writing is less structured but that OMSAS definitely requires you to touch on their qualities" but haven't been able to find a corresponding post about it. Thanks!
  8. Thanks everyone for making me feel like I wasn't just an anomaly and for all the tips that you guys provided me to help me get better. To improve oneself is admirable but to improve others is noble; a quality all of you have! Will definitely be using this information to come back next year better and stronger!
  9. Hey @JohnGrisham thanks for the reply and I get that I'm in a hyper competitive pool but how can I progress from here? I don't think I could chalk it up to luck entirely and go into next year's interviews with the same style and be mentally stable lol
  10. Walking out of the interview, I didn't feel the greatest but I knew that I did okay, meaning that my performance would be either average or above average. Never did I think it would turn out to be a below average and at this point, I don't know what to do. The same version of me that was congratulated for my interview skills in practice by others was the one I presented to the interviewers and that got me a very demoralizing "Below Average". What can I do to improve and what could my pathologies have been? Much appreciated guys!
