  1. That would be pretty wild! I'm personally hoping they'll interview because they've already said interview is worth 40% so it'll suck if they change the application scoring on us.
  2. I'm applying to Dal this year and got an email about it but I'm not totally sure what it is or how it's different from the actual test
  3. Wow thank you guys so much for the responses! I had never heard of that residency before but after seeing what you guys have written and doing some research myself it sounds very cool and right up my ally! Especially since I was already considering Family Medicine, it's awesome that you can become certified in it through the residency. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that Dal doesn't have PHPM as a residency (I'm Nova Scotian, hoping to get into Dal Med, and wouldn't have minded the option to stay here for residency as well). When looking at the schools that offer the PHPM residency, I see that there seems to be very few spots - does anyone know how competitive it is to get a PHPM residency or if the number of slots are correlated to the amount of interest in the field since it doesn't seem to be the most talked about?
  4. I'm looking to apply to Med school for fall 2021 entry - I've already written my MCAT and feel I've got a decent shot at it. I've always wanted to be a doctor as I've loved the high-pressure first aid situations that I've experienced as a Lifeguard and I enjoy scientific problem solving as well as helping people the best I can. I really want to have one on one personal interactions with the public in my job. The only thing is that over the past few years, I've become extremely interested in health policy. I've started to really think deeply about the way the healthcare system works and all the ethical problem solving that goes into systemic policy changes. When I tell friends and family I'm interested in policy, they tell me I should think about law school and doing a specialization in health law. Even though health law sounds interesting, I just don't think I'll be able to get the clinical experience I crave to have in a job. While I still want to be a doctor, I'm hoping to leave the door open for policy work. Does anyone know if there are jobs for doctors in health policy and/or what credentials you would need to work in health policy with an MD?
  5. I just got waitlisted as well! I know they won't disclose rank but does anyone know how many people they keep on the waitlist?
  6. I wonder if they're waiting for OMSAS to release the med admissions tomorrow to see if anyone rejects the offer.
  7. I don't think so! There's still a week until mid-May so I'm holding out hope haha
  8. I've applied as well! I'm a Canadian and I emailed them a while back asking if decisions would be delayed due to COVID-19 but they said I should still know by mid-May. So far I've heard of two Canadians who have heard back (I don't know them personally). I believe one was accepted and one was rejected (not sure if the one rejected was actually rejected or put on the waitlist). To my knowledge both of them also applied to Med so my best guess is that they're trying to give decisions to people who applied to multiple programs first to give them time to decide which program they want.
