    Tattoo and interview

    Ok thank you all for the replies I guess I am sort of over paranoid that it could doom my interview, I’ll stay away from a tack watch and see if I can find a longer sleeved dress shirt that doesn’t look awkward to ease my nerves. All the input is very much appreciated!
  4. Hi I know tattoos have been discussed on the forums before but long story short I have a full sleeve tattoo that is essentially covered when I wear a suit but in certain positions when my sleeve gets pulled up it is slightly visible. Do any of you know if it would be worth it to cover the edges with make up or wear a big watch to keep it as covered as possible or will it not negatively impact me if it potentially shows slightly during my interviews?

  9. Ok makes sense, thanks for the reply!
  10. Hi all, I’ve been an undergrad assistant in a lab at my school and currently have been acknowledged in a publication but I’m not one of the 4 coauthors (I joined the lab right when they were finishing it and only ran on portion of the experiments and made 1 of the figures so it wasn’t enough to get coauthor). Does being part of a publication as an acknowledgement but not being coauthor have any value to it? im mainly asking since I’ve been with the lab for 2 years and I don’t want my work to seem unproductive, most of my work won’t be recognized until later. I’m supposed to be coauthor on 2 other publications but they aren’t supposed to be done for at least just over a year so unfortunately I most likely won’t be able to add them to any applications for another 2 cycles. Aside from that I did an undergraduate poster presentation and I am supposed to do a poster at an international conference in summer. Is it worthwhile to explain this if I don’t get in this cycle? Or am I stressing over nothing.
  11. Nope there’s no separate personal question section, just personal in regards to the prompts (at least from when I wrote it).

    How competitive is OOP?

    Ok thanks all for the replies! This is interesting to hear I’ve never looked into their admissions requirements. For connections are they just looking for anything related maritimes? I have some extended family there but I didn’t grow up there/ my parents didn’t. Halifax is realistically somewhere I have considered living after school as well since I really enjoy the east coast, would it be valid enough bring up that I want to have a career there long term? Other then that I don’t have much else. I would love to apply even if I had a slight chance.
  13. Hi I didn’t apply this year to Dalhousie but I am considering it if I don’t get in anywhere this year. I am just curious on how competitive the OOP seats are if anyone can share, I couldn’t find any statistics about if specifically. for reference I have a 3.86 gpa on the OMSAS scale and 518 mcat currently but next year my lower 2nd year gpa wouldn’t be calculated so it would most likely go up.
