    Horrible Experience: CaRMS Translation Services

    @Wine&Cheese24 If you haven't already, I suggest you email them and ask them to personally add your original reference letters to the translated ones. You might have some success with that

    Horrible Experience: CaRMS Translation Services

    @Wine&Cheese24 Wow! That's just totally unacceptable. This is our future on the line here... I am also quite worried as to the quality of the translated reference letters, especially if the originals will not be available as you mentioned. I know that CaRMS only acts as an intermediary to Ubiqus Ottawa Inc. (formerly Société Gamma), the translation company. BUT: I think they at least have the responsibility to hire a responsible and competent company that can insure the quality of the translations. I will be contacting student resources at my faculty and try to stir up some shit so people don't get screwed again in the future. Thx for your reply! Happy to hear I wasn't the only one...
  5. I am at a French school. I submitted a French->English translation request for my clerkship evaluations as I will be applying to the English schools. CaRMS obliges you to use their translation services for the MSPR. Just received these translations, <24 hours until CaRMS deadline, and they are of such poor quality. Complex sentences with many adjectives were summarized to "good with patients" or "very good student", etc. There were also frank spelling errors. Asked them to address this issue and they add the changes but accidentally delete whole sections of my evaluations in the process. I am chasing after them to do a half-ass job I paid >300$ for... Honestly, this is complete bullshit. Anybody else had a similar experience?

    Calgary IM Personal Statement

    I don't know what the right answer to this question is. I don't think there is one. What I did: I chose 2 skills pertaining to patient care and academic medicine that I want to improve on. I chose a past example for each which demonstrated how I started developing this skill and I gave specific points as to how I want to work on them during residency.
