    Why is everyone here French?

    I'm aware of the difference between Podiatry and Chiropodiatry in Ontario and how that might prevent the entire profession from existing but what's the deal in Quebec? Why is everyone here French?
  2. Did you get hit with a fat waitlist from McMaster University at 9:03am this morning? Was McMaster your only interview and shot at becoming a physician? If so, get in here! Waitlist party woot
  3. What colour backpacks will next year's class carry? The class of 2021 has Navy, the class of 2020 has turquoise. What does the class of 2019 have?
  4. https://mdprogram.mcmaster.ca/mcmaster-md-program/overview/assessment-methods This website is super general and non-specific. I was wondering if it would be pure Pass/Fail v.s. Honours/Pass/Fail v.s. Honours/High Pass/Pass/Low Pass/Fail etc. and whether you will be ranked amongst your class.
  5. What should we do the summer before medical school?
  6. Does anyone have the original document or any helpful links?
  7. Any advice on seeking Line of Credits?

    "HOT DAMN" - Captain Raymond Holt
  9. Since the incoming class is the Class of 2021, does that mean we will have Navy backpacks? Or will be get next year's colour (Class of 2022)

    What colour backpacks will next year's class carry?

    Will the year on the shoulder say 2022 (appropriate for everyone else but not for us) or 2021 (appropriate for us, maybe custom made?)

    If that's the case, I wonder if PGY1s from McMaster are mistaken for MS4s often hahaha
  12. Does any one remember the character count and whether spaces are included in that for the Responsibility section of each ABS entry? I think it's 150 without spaces but I'm not too sure.

    OMSAS ABS requirements

    How do you do that without sounding corny or repititive (I swear the word collaborate is in each entry lol)
  17. https://www.afmc.ca/publications/admission-requirements-canadian-faculties-medicine Does anyone have experience with this document? How is the user interface (i.e. PDF or MSAR-style aka online) When is the data updated to reflect the 2017-2018 cycle?
  18. On MSAR, there are separate data for Out-of-state v.s. International students. I was wondering which schools considered Canadians as OOS v.s. International. I can't find this information on a lot of their websites and the only site I found for this is the BEMO one which I'm not sure if I can trust its accuracy. https://bemoacademicconsulting.com/canadian-friendly-usa-med-schools

    western acceptance stats

    I wonder if they'll look at Psych Soc this year

    western acceptance stats

    Does this mean a SWOMEN with a 2 year GPA of 4.0 and 525 (132 129 132 132) on the MCAT is "guranteed" an interview, no matter what the ABS or Letters or anything else say? What is the selection criteria post-interview?
  21. Under which section should Shadowing/Observerships be included? I was thinking either Extracurricular or Others. Also, would it be worth it to include short-term observerships (one or a few shifts) or only include the long-term ones? I don't want to seem like I'm padding...

    First of all, congratulations!!! Do you mind if I ask which rank Hamilton campus was on your list? I'm going to go ahead and assume 1st*... My friend got in at 1pm on Wednesday to a regional campus (2nd choice) Hamilton was the 1st choice. @premed647 got in at 12:21pm on Thursday to Hamilton (1st choice*). Is the order of acceptance off of the watilist not sequential? How is the campus decided with regard to those on the waitlist? Am I reading too deep into this?
  24. Is this a PDF or an online user interface?
