  1. most of the "my life as a ____ student/profession" social media accounts i see are just people feeding their inner narcissists rather than useful/productive use of social media. there are a few exceptions (ali abdaal's youtube channel is pretty great for people genuinely curious about pursuing medical education) but aside from those i think most med social media is pretty useless lol
  2. Hearing weird things about peoples' backgrounds being changed and wondering if I should beware before downloading onto my new Mac?
  3. Also worth noting that if you do a research-based master's, you will have good opportunities to publish articles - each of which would be a separate entry in OMSAS.
  4. Unless you have a basically bulletproof plan for paying for/maintaining the property when/if you leave that city, it sounds like a lot of stress to put on yourself when you should be 100% focused on your medical education and well-being.
  5. interesting you should say that, I am choosing between Scotia (great program of course) - whose rep is very nice but not someone i actually know - and RBC, whose rep is a family friend of mine who is very well-versed in advising medical students/staff because they both have ~equivalent nice bonus points packages (up to 45000 bonus pts at each), im weighing the $300 cash bonus from Scotia with the potential ease/hook-ups that having familiarity would give me long-term. from the looks of it, rmorelan, you'd probably suggest going with RBC eh?
  6. oh that's great. although, all this competition makes it quite hard to pick a bank LOL
  7. for Scotia users: does the 2 year grace period begin after graduation or after completing residency?
  8. lol aren't u the same person who said the entire admissions system needs to be overhauled and people should stop jumping all through the 'hoops' of adcoms nationwide? why don't you spend some time studying for an MCAT retake man, you're just yelling into an abyss at this point.
  9. can't think of an opinion i disagree with more tbh. 1. Schools didn't exclude winter2020 grades for people that failed, they did it because it was an outlier. Many people thrived off of cancellations and empathetic professors and had their "first 4.0 semester". This high achievement is attributable to the pandemic and thus, is not a fair data point for peoples' performance. Thus, the most fair approach is to ignore it. 2. Please do not assume you have the competence or experience to occupy high-ranking academic positions in faculties of medicine that have been around longer than many COUNTRIES. I am Black, grew up quite poor and had no mentors or role models through my journey. I still pushed myself through every obstacle required to get into medical schools. I didn't complain, and still don't. Why? Because there are thousands of students who would kill for the chance to be in my position. You think premeds won't happily put themselves through the application process regardless of recent changes? The only revolution that needs to happen is with your attitude.
  10. ^ i thought the same thing. that's 800 bucks per application! pretty bogus imo
  11. this user made their account 3 days ago and has made 0 other posts. it's almost certainly a troll. there is literally ZERO concrete evidence to suggest BSAP applicants have significantly lower standards for gpa or other academic metrics. its entirely assumed by the slightly higher rate of entry (and possibly peoples' general presumptions about black people and their GPAs?).
  12. lol at "infinitely easier". this user is clearly taking jabs at BSAP applicants. everyone i know who interviewed through BSAP had a wGPA greater than 3.95 (literally 10 people). you still have to be great
