    You should learn to take responsibility. All I hear in this thread is that it was the instructors fault that you got a bad mark.
    I find it very unlikely that your instructor would give you a bad mark for no reason....
    You probably underestimated the course, thought it would be easy, and got a reality check.

    This thread and your posts show you that you clearly are not mature enough to enter medicine now. Everyone was being nice above and trying to be constructive and you are still posting like this...sorry, but someone had to say it.

    UofT probably is BC a lot of keeners and gunners go there

    takasugi got a reaction from Maryxz in All QuARMS spots are now reserved for Black and Indigenous applicants   
    Quarms was stupid to begin with, atleast this makes it less stupid. If you look up the people in Quarms, most of them come from rich, privileged backgrounds. I was surprised by how many of them were coming from private schools. Even in normal med students, I am kinda shocked at how many private school kids I've seen/met.
    Indigenous people already have an advantage at most schools. So I don't get the point of this change. 
    I just see this as another pathetic attempt by the school to appear more "diverse" and "accepting". Queens has a reputation for being a really white school so they are probably trying to change it. Unfortunately Black and Indigenous kids are not the only ones facing challenges. There are East Asian and South Asian communities that face a lot of barriers. Asians extends beyond Chinese and Indian people y'know.... It should be based on SES, not race.

    I've been following this thread and I honestly have a headache. Look OP, many more experienced people above have given you very valid points about NOT leaving your degree right now. You seem very defensive and want to fight against every single point anyone makes that does not validate your perspective. Just do what you want, jeez.

    Ppl need to get over themselves. We are in unprecedented times. Atleast AAMC is making the MCAT available for applicants.
     
    In the grand scheme of things, there are much more serious things going on... Also, an important part of medicine is resilience and adapting to difficult situations....

    takasugi got a reaction from oneday1 in OSAP for Quebec Residents   
    I think you have to apply through your home province. OSAP won't be available to you. OSAP is for Ontario students. To be eligible for OSAP, you'd have to live here for 12 months without attending post-secondary school. I'm pretty sure if I went to Alberta for school, I would still get my loans through OSAP as I would be an Ontario resident, not Albertan. 
     
    Stop trying to mooch off of Ontario and Ontario taxpayers. We pay for OSAP for OUR kids. Not Quebec's kids.

    takasugi reacted to Phil Jackson in Western Waitlist Party 2019-2020   
    It’s like you’re a 25 year old minor league third baseman still clinging on to your hopes of playing in the majors. You know your time is running out. Your youth and excitement for the game is ever slightly fading year over year as you struggle to improve your game. Some of your best friends and teammates from college are already starters contributing for playoff teams. Maybe this year you put together a string of great games. Maybe you get noticed by some scouts and are even called up for a couple workouts with the team. You know this is gonna be one of your last few chances. You do your best but there’s always some doubt AND you also know there’s plenty of younger and more talented players competing for that same spot. As you await for that official invite to participate in spring training you are contemplating whether you even want to spend another year grinding it out in AA ball. Maybe you should just take that offer to be an assistant coach at your alma mater and move on with your life.

    I just thought that amongst all this sadness for people who didn't get a spot I'd just share my story as I'm sure some of you can relate and others can hopefully draw some inspiration. Also I just need to vent.
    This was my 4th cycle, I've gotten in at schools in the US and Europe but I just really wanted to stay in Canada because this is my home. 
    After not getting in post undergrad I did a master's program that has allowed me to obtain a role as a health care professional. I've got over two thousand hours of frontline healthcare experience. 
    All I've ever wanted was an interview to show these schools that I WILL be a great doctor. Just a chance to show them that stats aren't everything (I've got a great GPA, but 126 CARS). 
    Having worked in healthcare, knowing how to talk to patients and working with doctors, nurses and allied health on almost a daily basis, I knew I was ready to slay the interview (despite what Mac said about us thinking we would do better on the interview than we actually would). This year for the first time I got my wish, and got that opportunity..only to ultimately lose out on the chance to show what makes me unique and demonstrate my readiness to be a physician. TO A LOTTERY no less. It's been a really really tough pill to swallow but I'm not giving up just yet. 
    I know that I will be a great physician, it's not a matter of IF but WHEN. As hard as it is let's all keep our heads up. Congrats to everyone that's gotten in. All of this waiting is just going to make it that much sweeter when we are finally there. 
     
    Peace and love
