    For sure, I understand that totally. I am fully comfortable taking the hits for my decisions, I am fully aware that nobody owes me anything hahah.

    I read that! It is a nice idea.. I just have a hard time thinking there wouldn't be some negative bias if I were to walk into an exam room with my whole sleeve just out in the open.

    Seems logical. The only thing is, potentially the older patient demographic would be apprehensive?
  6. Hello, As a med school applicant with lots of tattoos, how is this perceived? I am sure this has been discussed at much length in the past, just wanna see where we are at. For context, I have a full sleeve of flowers and waves on my left arm, which I had done on a trip to Japan. No other visible tattoos. Discuss!
  7. So, lets assume you have 4 years of undergrad completed, but only 2 are full-time, would those 2 be the only ones assessed?
  8. Does Ottawa U ONLY assess the years of UG you carried a full course load in?? Also, do the pre reqs, if done in the summer, count towards GPA? Or any summer courses for that matter? Thanks Haha Confused Sad

    important question

    Curious on this as well
  10. selfies Someone exits lethargically, finding interestingly, extra snacks...
  11. Try to really frame your activities around essential skills.. like leadership or whatever. Wording can make a huge difference!
  12. Makes sense... I actually get quite excited at the chance to live in such a unique place, coming from a big city in Ontario. Thanks for the reply.
  13. Thanks for the reply, very fair. I think my EC's are fairly comprehensive but again no way to really know. PM'ed you.
