  1. Hey everyone, just wondering what students prefer for taking notes in medical school. I am due for a new laptop (RIP 2009 MacBook) and wanted some insight on what is ideal for note taking. Another consideration is a tablet as well, I see a lot of people using those now. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Laptop/technology recommendations

    I’ve been strongly considering it. Thanks for your input!
  3. I will be removing myself from the waitlist today. Good luck everyone!
  4. Result: Accepted to St. George Campus Timestamp: May 14th, 9:16 AM GPA: 3.96 MCAT: Above cutoffs ECs: Good enough for all EC heavy schools Essays: I think they were pretty good. I worked very hard on them for 2 months and made sure my friends thought they were a good representation of me. Interview: 2 stations were good, and 2 stations I left thinking "Whelp, nice knowing ya UofT". Year: Masters done Geography: IP I never thought I would have a few offers given how poorly I perceived my own performance in the interviews. I wan't this to be a lesson that no matter how you feel after your interview, you just never know. I will likely be declining this offer. Good luck everyone!
  5. Result: Accepted Timestamp: 8:43am GPA: 3.99 MCAT: 51x EC: Interesting and long term Geography: IP Interview: MMI was amazing, Panel was so bad I skipped the tour and drove home sad at how embarrassing it was Year: done masters Will likely accept this offer

Interview: This interview felt amazing. The panel was incredibly kind, and never once put me on the defensive. Year: Completed Masters Geography: IP Edit: I have declined this offer, good to those on the waitlist, I have my fingers crossed!

    I can check my Solus (if I have one?). I have the Net ID from the interview, but is there a password too? or is it my DOB

    Again this may be purely an administrative error. Until I get an email, I am not considering this official (although I am lowkey freaking out)

  14. Waitlisted at 2:01 EST as OOP! Also, OFFERS ARE COMING OUT (they are starting with satellite campuses), can confirm friends are getting in.
  15. Timestamp: 2:01 EST Result: Waitlisted Early or Regular Deadline: Regular AGPA: 91.7 MCAT: 51x Year: Done my masters ECs: Pretty good mix Geography: OOP Interview: I felt horrible coming out of that interview so I am very happy to be on the waitlist. Essay was very standard and easy to write about.

  17. Are regret emails staggered over a period of time? or are they all sent at once?

    TD Student Line of Credit Amazon Offer

    With a 325 M line of credit, I think this will really augment the self-care aspect of medical school. We can all agree that every student needs their own private jet and yacht to succeed #self-care. Right now, I just could not picture taking anything less than 400 million for my line of credit, but with the 500$ Amazon card, I am tempted to settle for a lowly 325 million LOC. I guess the penthouse I wanted will just need to wait.
  20. There is no smoke and mirrors for the email headline. The email you want is "UBC Undergraduate Admissions:Offer of Admission - [Campus Name]"
  21. PST it seems rejections come out first around 8-9 am, waitlists are 10-11 am, and acceptances are around 1200. Gonna be a long day in Ontario for me.
  22. Very interesting. It seems like some changes are being implemented for the upcoming admissions cycle. Since their MCAT cutoff is already 125, I feel like they will either remove the MCAT entirely, or, just lower it to 124's. I guess we will get a glimpse of their intentions this upcoming admissions cycle.
  23. So many red flags here omg, this better be a joke

    Keep in mind that if you do pursue a second undergrad, you can only apply to Western in your fourth year, and you must be mindful of your MCAT expiration 5 years after writing.
