    Call charges and roaming

    Yes sir, you will get charged. Even text messages to US numbers despite being in Canada will be charged.
  2. There are still three more days to fill for interviews?
  3. This is the place to speculate and ask questions.

    Interview Prep Timeline

    There is no magic number or schedule that will prepare you for the interview. I can promise you that the questions designed in either the MMI or panel section will not enable you to have amazing answers for every question or scenario. My best recommendation is to write out your experiences and what you learned from each (match to CanMEDS competencies). If you want to be most prepared, I suggest working with a partner and asking the most absurd panel questions you might typically gloss over (I.e if you found a genie lamp and had 3 wishes, what would you wish for?). You can easily prepare for traditional MMI scenarios (UBC document with 15 pages floating around) or generic panel questions, but that wont suffice for when you are thrown off guard with an out of the box question. When you can answer absurd questions while remaining calm and collected, then I think you will be more than ready for anything come interview day. Be creative, have fun, and do not fall victim to the idea that there is a formula for answering everything. At the end of the day they want to learn about you as a person, they don't care anymore about grades or MCAT at this stage.

    Queen's interview timing/format?

    I don't know too much about the number of MMI stations, but panel can be anywhere from 9-15 minutes. On a rushed day, expect 9 minutes, and on a more relaxed schedule, you will have the full 15.
  7. Feb 6th. If you try to log into the portal right now the error message says it wont open until then.
  8. If people are wanting to take legal action regarding a single medical school rejection, then I think admissions is doing their job correctly in keeping you out.

    Queens Interview Portal Password

    Password is ddmmyyyy with no dashes or spaces. You can do a test login through the link and you know you entered your information correctly when you get an error telling you access will not open until Feb 6th. If you did enter your information incorrectly, you just get a red message saying incorrect username/password.
  10. With any application review, there is subjectivity as to whether the person(s) reviewing your file resonates with your applications or not. This does not mean anything about your strength as a candidate for medicine or the school in particular. The fact you have a few interviews already is monumental and says a lot about your strength as an applicant. Do not take this rejection personally. Some people who have amazing stats receive no interviews, so I would focus your energy in the interviews you already have. Congratulations on the success though, that is amazing getting Canadian and top 10 US.
  11. This is my third year applying (9 rejections, 1 interview), and with nothing changing, I received 4 interviews this year. I have absolutely no idea what the process is, but seriously do not give up. There is such volatility in each application year that I have decided there is no predicting each cycle.
  12. They always go into spam or promotions if you use Gmail

  14. According to their Website: "We typically e-mail interview invitations at least two weeks prior to the interview date to allow you time to make appropriate travel arrangements. However, we may continue to e-mail invitations during the week leading up to the interview date in order to ensure all interview spaces are filled." which to my interpretation, unless someone cancels the very last minute, you will have at least two weeks notice.
