  1. If anyone is interested in practicing MMIs early on UBC campus, message me!
  2. 127 in CARS and received an invite OOP. Trumps the other post about a higher cut off for OOP students.
  3. Received an invite as an OOP applicant as well!
  4. You can manually correct this yourself if you go back to your application!
  5. I think they changed it this year so that grad students don't need to provide additional letters. This is really discrete and if you haven't done so already, under the 'References' category, you have to add your supervisor as a Toronto Graduate Verifier using the 'add referee' button.
  6. I am trying to cut down my number of entries to 32 and I'm hoping to get some insight into what to include. I'm involved in 2 ongoing research projects in which I would be listed as 3rd-5th authors if they were to be published in the future. Does anyone know if research is only valuable if it has been published/presented? I have other publications and presentations, so these entry would be more of an add-on, and I would indicate that they are 'research in preparation.' Do you think it would be more valuable to swap these entries out for additional awards or activities? Thanks!
  7. Is it acceptable to add MSc under both Employment and Research? I thought it made sense to add my MSc published thesis under Research, and then my actual responsibilities and hours as an MSc student under Employment. Can anyone confirm?
  8. My referee ended up contacting OMSAS to explain that they used my name. Since my referee already submitted their form, no changes could be done, but luckily OMSAS confirmed this shouldn't affect me as the applicant! I am a re-applicant so I could understand how my referee overlooked the new rule. Maybe if more referees do the same mistake, they can make this more clear. But I am assuming that names can introduce bias if the evaluator is familiar with the candidate or if it hints at an ethnicity.
  9. Hi everyone. I just got contacted from one of my referees who said they accidentally used my name throughout the reference form, even though it explicitly says not to to reduce bias. I’m going to ask my referee to get into contact with omsas to hopefully have the opportunity to edit an already submitted form. Has anyone had luck with references being able to change their forms even after submission?? I’m worried that something like this would invalidate my reference.
  10. University of Guelph's 1-year MBS Master of Biomedical science. I liked this program because it can be transferable to a 2-year thesis based MSc at the end of the first year, so I transferred over when I was declined from med in my first year.
  11. Btw once you’re at the interview stage it’s 100% Interview performance. You just need the gpa to get to phase 2 and then be on the same playing field
  12. I still want to keep both feet in these careers- has anyone known anyone who has gone into dentistry (or any other health professional school) and then successfully got into med midway through? I have dentistry offers at UofT and UBC, no med interview invites, but I applied to dentistry as a back up to my lifelong goal of medicine. I had interview shots at UOttawa med and UBC last year, both unsuccessful, and then had no interview invites this year. If I decline dental offers, my DAT scores expire and I completely lose the opportunity to be a dentist, something that I would still genuinely be happy doing. Med is my absolute dream, but I don’t want to close a great door when I had tried 4 cycles now with medicine. Basically I’m thinking about applying to med this next cycle, with the intent to leave DDS after first year if I get accepted. Is this a bad decision?? All thoughts are welcome
  13. Accepted OOP Although leaning towards UofT so the waitlist may move
