    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    I just want to make sure you know, to be exempt from renewing your prereqs so you can apply in the regular applicant pool, I think you must submit a request for exemption before you apply, not wait until you send in your CV. Check the details beforehand. Good luck!

    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    Have you applied for this cycle? Then you definitely should know your category. If you are planning to apply for a future cycle, you indeed may not be NTP if you have retaken your pre-requisites in your current certificate program, or even possibly if you have not ( see here, look at the 7th bullet point on that page). That is my understanding. Please note however that I may be mistaken

    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    Agree, if you are NTP the interview counts for 100%.
  4. A good portion of our class is seriously francophone, and they seem to be doing great!

    Second interview - Advice?

    I don't know if this will help, but I do think that the following is a major problems for many interviewees: It is super important to verbalize your complete thought process throughout each scenario as you interact with the actors. Again, I will repeat, although it is awkward and unnatural, you must talk out all of the things that you are thinking in your head which drive your responses to the scenarios, as this is an important window for the evaluators to judge whether or not you have understood/empathized/interacted properly as it may be fit. I used this myself in the MMIs, and I think that this is an issue for many good candidates, especially as you describe yourself as soft-spoken and modest. As HoopDreams rightly said, you will likely not be asked to enumerate your personal qualities at length and strut your stuff, but you WILL be evaluated based on what the evaluators can see and hear in their observations of your interactions, so make sure to verbalize everything that is important to this end. Best of luck this week!

    Closed or open file for interview?

    They do not know anything about you at all, except for the one station which consists of "standard" interview questions (if they will do that this year as they have in the past few years), and even there I do not think they can see the entire file, only certain parts of it.
  7. Yes, looking forward to seeing you guys as well! Invites go out tomorrow! Best of luck!

    Obtaining a ranked list of where you place

    It certainly is true for in province applicants, although I understand they decide each year if they will respond and send out the rankings or not, as they are not obligated to do so. I believe a rejected applicant has to email the admissions office to request the rankings, who may then send it out sometime in the summer.

    McGill CV

    You seem to have answered your own question! If it helps, I recommend combining the less striking experiences into one entry. That way you get a lot more in but without wasting valuable space. You can format the combined entries as you like, write in all the dates and a general heading, and then put in one line or bullet point for each experience. Hope this helps! Best of luck!

    Using "I" and "My" in the CV??

    It's fine. I wrote stuff like that and got in.
  11. Curious as well! Very! But I respect the cyber anonymity.... One thing I'll say, I am super impressed so far and I think we have a really awesome cohort, everyone is so real and also fun!
  12. I don't know, but would imagine they've all been awarded. I mean, school pretty much began already
  13. It seems that the single recipient of this particular scholarship has been chosen. Got a nice email explaining that it was unfortunately not me, so congrats to the lucky one! So now all our questions have been answered! Maybe...
