  3. I really think a lot of applicants do not understand why the in province favoritism is in effect. I grew up in Saskatchewan and know intimately the shortage of doctors. My foster mom had a serious discussion of whether she should bother driving the two hours to the nearest emergency room or if she would already be dead from a heart attack by they time she got there. Follow up care was non existent too. It takes a different type of person to practice in a place like Saskatchewan and statistically, people from Saskatchewan will be more likely to stay there to practice. It saddens me to see people thinking that in province status is a way to game the system, instead of seeing it as a way to help ensure and underserved population has a chance to attract doctors.
  4. They asked questions on the application to see if you qualify as in province, but I was not asked for documentation, though one could say my degree from the U of M was official proof.
  5. "The Admissions Committee gives priority to residents of Manitoba who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents regardless of where they completed their premedical studies. The University of Manitoba defines Manitoba applicants as those who: have graduated from a Manitoba high school; or have a recognized degree from a university in Manitoba; or have completed a minimum of two consecutive years of full-time academic studies in a recognized program at a university in Manitoba, while physically residing in Manitoba; or have been a resident in the Province of Manitoba for a minimum of two (2) years following high school graduation; the two year residence period will not be considered broken where the Admissions Committee is satisfied that the applicant was temporarily out of the province on vacation, in short-term volunteer work or employment, or as a full time student."
  6. My first time interviewing was just okay. I messed up on one question, but everyone was very nice. I just hate the wait. Nine more weeks!
