  1. How hard was it to pass the Royal College exams after a US residency? People on this forum always post that it's "almost impossible" to pass if you didn't do your residency in Canada because of the way the exam is designed(?)
  2. Accepted to Queen's with a 501 MCAT? Is their cutoff that low?
  3. There's lots of people who go to med school in their late 20s. If this is something you really want, I wouldn't allow age to discourage you.
  4. I came across this Facebook Live that was streamed today where the Director of Admissions says that in the next couple of years there will be changes to the MD admissions process such that it will be "less GPA and MCAT centric" and "put more emphasis on interviews". I can understand the GPA part, the trend is pretty obvious that soon the average GPA of admitted students would approach a 4.0, but a 50th percentile MCAT cutoff requirement could never be used to describe the admissions process as "MCAT-centric". Have any current UofT students heard anything about this? I might be wrong, but my interpretation is that they would not only put more emphasis on the interview itself but actually modify aspects of the current interview process. Any thoughts? Here's the link, starts at 17:50 https://t.co/QAxV4Qtl5r
  5. Are first-year students involved with file review or is it just upper years like the interview?
  6. Keep in mind that McGill doesn't require the MCAT and Queen's does (might screen out a lot of international applicants, especially with CARS). And the few that aren't screened and are actually competitive are likely to receive offers to Toronto (they also take international students FYI and their admissions process is similar to Queen's in the sense they are an EC heavy school), which might explain why Queen's has unfilled spots at the end. Like xiphoid said, it's just too small of a sample to draw any meaningful conclusions.
