    Eudaimonia got a reaction from Dr. Un Jour in Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors   
    It's more like a research course, where you talk about the process of research, do some paper reviews etc. You're matched to a researcher with a small group of other students, based on interest. You meet 4 times in the first year and 2 times in Med 2, and it's really just a couple hours of commitment since it's not an actual project in a lab.
    Not sure what you're referring to for "lab course", but we have histology and anatomy labs as learning environments (not research). 
    I'm not familiar with APP but by the name of it it sounds like small group learning, which we do have approximately each afternoon. These are to reinforce theoretical concepts, and some of them are to practice clinical skills/history taking (once per block).

    Really not many do. The recommendation is that you're better off using your time if not on studies then on other activities that would enhance your CV or wellbeing. Depending on what kind of job you have, consider if it is worth your precious time. Med school can be a lot to handle, and if you find that manageable, you can find ways to make it super fun. If it's due to finances, you shouldn't have to worry about a job

    It's counted towards your credits but not towards your GPA. There might be limits to how many P/F courses you have per semester/year depending on the school. If you just have one, you'll have no problems.

    Yup! Most banks just need your acceptance letter, and you'll later need to provide proof of enrolment. Some branches want that proof upfront, but you can definitely start shopping

    Eudaimonia got a reaction from brady23 in Funded Studentship vs. NSERC   
    It's my understanding that they're the same thing. Are you asking how to put them in your CV (in which case you could state the amounts even if the studentship doesn't explicitly say it online) or which is more competitive for something?

    Before they assign you to a place they ask for language proficiency and ability to commute, but of course not everyone will get ideal matches. It's more than likely that you'll encounter patients of both languages even if you're at a hospital that serves a predominant English/French population. 
    That said, it's not crucial to know French for the purpose of this course component, but it does mean you'll get less out of the patient interactions or their conversations with your preceptor. It's helpful to know basic French just to make the patient comfortable with small talk, and it's also an opportunity to practice your clinical French. But you have no responsibilities in LFME; you're there to learn.

    Eudaimonia reacted to ZBL in How to minimize debt in med school/residency?   
    Another devils advocate comment here. Frugality can be good at times, and yes you shouldn’t let your spending get out of control. But don’t forget that you are spending the prime years of your life in a classroom, ER, or some crappy call-room while you work a stupid amount of hours each week and miss out on friends, family and your own youth, the thought of which would make most normal people vomit. That trade off should be rewarded - not deferred to 30 years later.
    The one thing most med students do have going for them is their health. 30 years later, who knows what your situation will be. Spend money to eat properly, buy things that make you happy now, do fun things with what little free time you have. Saving everything for the future is risky just as well in my opinion. If it’s a difference of even 80K at the end of residency, my personal opinion is who cares? 6 months more to pay it off is meaningless when you’ve been in school for 10+ years with a (hopefully) 30 year career ahead of you. There’s a difference between living, living well and living extravagantly, and there’s no reason a med student/resident should be forced into just getting by on the bare minimum cost.
    PS I also think reasonable mortgages CAN be a good idea in the right circumstance. Not a clear cut yes or no though.

    I wanna warn you that as with any panel, the surprise might be that you get a pretty unfriendly panel by instruction, and just know that if that does happen, it has nothing to do with you. Keep calm and carry on

    Yes, my panel was super friendly with me. My questions seemed to be mostly following the script so it wasn't too much that they were personally interested in knowing more, although sometimes that was the case (context-specific questions)

    They'll go under employment, each a separate entry. Summer jobs or short-term commitment, all fine. Don't get the impression that people stick to jobs for years. There's nothing wrong with a shorter involvement. You still acquire skills that merit description in an individual entry
