  1. Hello! I am wondering if someone can paint a picture of what Clerkship is like at McMaster. What are the hours typically? Do they vary between placements? Are all the placements in Hamilton or does one have to move? Just trying to get an idea of what to expect if I was to get into Mac Med.
  2. If you want to get it right and have support to help you get the score you need I would suggest a course I did. The price was very fair for the amount of one on one time I got with them. Got my score from 126 to 132 on practice test and then 129 on the real thing (there was a power outage during my test, that made me nervous and messed up my score). I currently have a interview for this year, and hoping for more. PM me if you want more info.
  3. If you are in Ontario GTA area message me. I did prep with a small company (all were formal tutors at the big three companies) Price is about half and so much one on one time. They would call me for hours helping me with Cars. Honestly, best decision I made. Currently have an interview for this year because of them.
  4. The Undergraduate Research in Natural and Clinical Science and Technology (URNCST) Journal (https://www.urncst.com/) is a publication backed in part by the Federal Government of Canada and has published for a number of prominent undergraduate conferences in Canada. We are currently looking for graduate students (i.e. Master’s, PhD) or undergraduate students (Bachelor’s, MD, PharmD, etc. with significant research experience) to serve as volunteer peer-reviewers for a series of articles submitted by undergraduate student researchers. All peer-reviewers are recognized in the published articles they review. If you are interested, please submit your curriculum vitae and a cover letter briefly outlining your research experience to application@urncst.com.
  5. Just wondering if there are notes online from previous years for the tutorials. My tutorial group dosn't seem to share much and I would just really like a reference so I know how I am doing with making my notes.
  6. 1. I have talked to two med consultants, both believe that my CV and GPA are good enough I do have to redo the MCAT to better my chances (I scored really high on the practice tests but had a fluke actual test which I would like to account to a family emergency happening the day before) 2. I do see myself enjoying PA but I guess my biggest worry is what if. That being said I can also see my self applying to med getting in and regretting not taking PA. I love both the careers for different reasons. 3. I don't think it is a back up I think they are both things I value but for different reasons.
  7. Thank you for your thoughts. Right now, I do not see PA as a stepping stone, I can see myself happy in that career but I can also see my self happy in med. And unfortunately I will not know what one is for me until I get there. I flip flop each day since getting the acceptance about strongly wanting to go to PA or strongly wanting to reapply to med.
  8. yes, I guess it all depends on how you look at it. Doing the PA program will allow me to see if medicine as a whole is for me. I can use that as an advantage when reapplying since I will have so many experiences that related to what I would do as a doctor. I too had that med or die attitude but I am also learning I have to enjoy other parts of life and open my self to experiences, but I guess it doesn't mean I can't still have my dream while I explore.
  9. Thank you for your reply, you are actually the first to mention this solution! And I have talked to many people. I wonder if Med schools would look down on this? I guess it is the best of both worlds. I don't have to turn down med but can keep the chances for med open. My only worry is it means I can't work on improving my medical application and it will hurt me.
  10. I have been fortunate enough to have been given an offer to a Physician Assistant program, however, I am having a hard time deciding what to do. I like many have always had the dream of being a doctor, and it's making the decision to take the PA very hard. I believe I would like both careers for different reasons and the pros of one career are the cons of the other and vice-versa. I am just putting this out here to see hear people's opinions. Do I take the PA offer? Or take a risk and reapply to med?

  12. The Mac PA website just said they released the first rounds of offers! Good Luck everyone.
  13. Wave of rejections or interviews!?! Wouldnt they have to give interviews today since it marks 2 weeks till April 7th?
  14. Just wanted some clarification as to what a full course equivalent (FCE) and half course equivalents are at Toronto. They say we need 2 FCE of life science. So would this be like 2 anatomy course and then 2 biology courses? Thank you
  15. I am at McMaster. I believe it is 30 credits. 1 course is generally three, typically students get 30 credits a year (10 courses x 3). However, in the first year, I did 27 credits in the fall and winter term than another course (3 credits) in the summer. I am not surer how one does 28 credits. Do you know if this will count?
