  1. Though I'm just entering my undergrad program and not really in a position to give you the best advice, I'd say to do what you enjoy the most in terms of something that would boost your app and focus on it only,just one thing.That way your passion would seap through and could represent itself as a result in form of a publication etc or it could convince the interviewer of your sincere interest.Plus you might be more happy while doing it. Pursue excellence and success should follow.
  2. Thank you all for your answers and time. I don't think I'm going to go anymore after doing some research and taking your comments to account.
  3. How is it like staying in Europe? Part of the reason I was interested was it would mean I'd get to experience a new culture and travel alone and live alone away from everything I grew up to know and hopefully grow and transform for the better.
  4. Should I leave Canada as a citizen to go to med school in Uk and try to come back? I know you can go straight after highschool for an mbbs which for me means I can practice in the U.k 4 years earlier than you would be able to in Canada. I did I.B and I finished with a 33 score so if I do get in,would you recommend it?How likely is it that I'd be able to return to work in Canada or even the US? I also got in to life sci at mac,but I thought I could save 3-4 years by going straight to the U.K. Is Ireland better than U.k for this or Australia,or some other country? Some relatives suggested the U.K path for medicine and I was interested so could you please give some advice?Is anyone on here trying it already? if so how is it going in terms of cost to benefit?
  5. I know a.i wont replace doctors probably for another 30-60 years, but I think it'll just get harder and harder,more and more competitive to get into medschool and become a doctor. Not to mention,the decent chance that the world will probably start destroying itself with global warming and a population of 9 billion by 2030 which will only increase poverty and suffering as food and water decreases and a.i replaces jobs.Not to mention how america seems to be heading towards a civil war with such a growing divide between the people. Also not to forget the likelhood of another global recession with a economic slowdown where our economies are more interconnected now more than ever due to technology,so a global recession would be much worse than the 1930's. Lest I forget the tens of thousands of nuclear and hydrogen bombs in the world,which with half of them detonated together can destroy our atmosphere and life as we know it. Never before in history have so many catastrophic factors have come so close together. My concern is with a seemingly unstable future,what if all this hardwork and dedication doesn't pay off?What if we're replaced,or we become obsolete?
  6. Its okay. I am not part of the bhsc admission staff trying to catch you cheating online(I cant guarantee that they wont find this post though).I just want to know why this is getting no answers.Does it simply not apply to most of you cuz you're not in the "best" year of highschool or something like that.
  7. I am kind of stuck on the first one,the second one I think i did ok, and the third one i have ideas, how about everyone else? Also, I personally think that this years questions are more difficult than previous years. I am not asking for you answers, or your approach to solving the questions, simply how you feel about them.
