  1. When will they update https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/after-youve-applied/currentapplicantstats ??!! I understand they must be busy but we deserve to know!
  2. This might explain: They only invited 218 QC University applicants to interviews this year compared to 299 in 2018. My guess is that they did the same for Med-P this year (inviting much fewer to interviews). We will find out when the statistics for med-p are put up on this site. I’d estimate they only invited about 200 applicants for med-p interviews (assuming same proportion of fewer invites) as opposed to 273 in 2018.

    Abortion

    Hi everyone, I will be interviewing at a few med schools (MMI format) and I'm worried about what to say if they ask for my stance on abortion. I know that I should discuss how it's a very difficult issue, that there are differing perspectives, their arguments, why each side has its strengths, other complexities (such as rape cases), etc. On one hand, I feel like a woman should have a right to choose what happens with her body and that some people wouldn't even consider fetus' actual living humans or "persons". But on the other hand, it is undeniable that an even an embryo resulting from fertilization is a living human organism, and that all human beings deserve the right to life. Do you think it would be okay for me to say after explaining all of this (both sides of the issue, and mentioning that I realize it is a difficult dilemma), that I stand against abortion because, in my mind, the right to life supercedes the freedom to choose not to undergo gestation? Edit: I’m hesitant to take this stance because I would think most med schools/adcoms like candidates with more liberal/social justice perspectives... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
