  1. Has anyone received an email yet about registering and paying tuition? I thought we would have to pay some sort of deposit.
  2. Has there been a facebook group made for the newly entering class?
  3. I recently got accepted into McMaster and will be attending for med school. After reading the forums, I realize that a lot of people think a 3 year program has a lot of disadvantages, especially if you don't already have a speciality in mind (I don't). I plan on shadowing a bunch or doing horizontal electives right from the get go to try and narrow down a speciality I'd want to do, but what else should I be doing to make myself competitive for matching despite going to a 3 year program? If I end up trying to pursue one of the very competitive specialities, like derm, are there specific things I should start doing in first year?
