  1. Thanks
    ahmadmz reacted to qwerty2222 in UofA Areas to Live   
    Many meds live in Windsor Park Plaza which is super nice, super close to UAH but very expensive. Concord tower is right across the street from windsor park plaza and is much less expensive. Campus housing: Newton Place houses many graduate students and families, right across from UAH. As well many live in the condo complexes by the UAH (garneu mews, university place, the place on 111th and 84ave that I can't figure out the name of) as well as on saskatchewan drive east of 109 St. Galen lofts is a good option if you are not opposed to loft style-housing. 
    Lots of good places around it just depends on your price point especially if you have a vehicle and need to pay for parking. Concord tower is a good compromise of space, price and location, in my opinion, although it lacks some things like balconies (but is across from 2 parks), underground parking (but it does have parking) and a few of the fancier options like a pool etc. (but who has the time haha). 
    You can also look along the LRT around southgate and century park. Downtown is also an option to be along the LRT line although it may be more expensive. I am not familiar with living north of downtown so I can't advise you on that. 
    I've heard mixed reviews about Garneu Towers, the price point is good though.

    ahmadmz reacted to propofolsquad in Immunizations   
    In Edmonton I got my criminal record check done within an hour at:
    14315 118 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5L 4S6 They were super fast! The place is kind of by the telus world of science. When I lived in a small town it took 3 weeks one time doing from our local RCMP detachment, so there can be a big variety in timing depending where you go.
    As for immunizations I'm getting mine done at the university health center and it will take me a month (due to scheduling of the test/reading the test conflicting with work) but I also already have everything but the mantoux done due to already working in health care.

    I used to live in the Sir John Franklin Apartments (just across from the Telus building). The rent was really expensive, parking was 100$/month and they shut off the water.... a lot... BUT it was so nice to be that close. It was definitely doable with room mates

    I found that the area around the Sugar Bowl had many med students living there. I'd look there if I were you, it's close to groceries and is walking distance to the hospital/school

    20 min panel, 6 MMI stations (2 min planning, 8 min speaking) = 80 minutes  Probably run through the MMI stations and then complete the panel.

    I am down to practice as well in the evenings. If the main group has already been formed, maybe we can form a sub-group of 3-4 people?

    Well, today is the day we are supposed to receive our interview times.   Much less stressful than last week.  Hopefully the IT issues will be resolved.  And I hope that a seat sale becomes available for our colleagues who have to travel a distance to Edmonton.

    Kinda! For me, I still have to find out if I can even attend. I requested that they book me on Mar 18, b/c my McMaster interview is Mar 17th, so hopefully they're able to make that happen. Then if I am able to attend I will have to change all my hotel reservations and flights lol. It's a bit hectic. I will just make a to-do list and try to not think about it until it's all confirmed! I just wanna get everything sorted right now! Oh well, can't complain too much, I got an invite.

    I'm also curious about your first question. Even if the exact breakdown isn't given I'd like to know if other components of the application count for anything. 
    The admission and selection page of their website says they have 162 seats, of which 85% goes to Albertans. Hope that reflects the correct size of the entering class for this year. I'm guessing they interview about 4 applicants per available IP or OOP seat. There's also an additional 15 quota positions for rural/Aboriginal applicants.

    I emailed them and they said even if they can’t sort out IT issues for setting up interviews, they’ll still send out emails letting students know if they will be interviewed or not. So today is the day.
