  1. Hi all, I got accepted to med school in Canada this year first time applying, and since then I've been working on a massive premed package that includes all the Khan Academy (KA) notes (complete), supplemented with a personal spin to make things easy. The package also includes my schedule, my activity log, a score predictor, 100 helpful reference documents with mnemonics and graphics of common topics, formulas, interview prep, cars tips ethics... everything that got me from premed to admitted, and now I'm passing it on to you. You can find the post here on Reddit Wordpress (easy link is tinyurl.com/MCATguide) I hope this is helpful for you all! Please let me know if you have any questions or queries.
  2. Hi everyone, This community has been a great resource for me, so I've been looking for a way to give back. Ever since D-day (aka May 10th for my fellow OMSAS warriors), I've been getting lots of PMs about interview skills. Partly because I got multiple offers, and partly because on my A/W/R posts I noted how well the interviews went. Rather than answering each PM separately I figured I'd make a post to point people towards so that others might benefit in the future. I'm not an interview god, I didn't know how to interview before I started, and I wasn't confident in my skills going in. However, the people I practiced with did compliment me quite a bit, and during my interviews several interviewer remarked on how well the conversation was going. I'm pretty sure that interviewers aren't supposed to give you any sort of feedback, but mine did. At the end of my Western interview, my interviewers spent about 10 minutes talking about how perfect I am for Western and vice versa. During my U of T interviews, one interviewer ended the conversation by saying "good job buddy", another by saying "you're an amazing story teller", and another with "this was the most engaging conversation I've had today". So while I'm not a natural interviewee, and I was quite nervous about the whole interview process, things went well. Bellow is why I think it went well for me. It may work for you, it may not. This is a case study with n=1. There's nothing magic about it, there are no secrets. There are, however, golden basics rules. Follow them, they work, and don't tell yourself that you can skip the hard work and figure our how to interview by "cramming" for a week. For MMIs: -Find a good medical ethics book (ie: Doing Right, and some basic CanMEDS resource) -Find a good person (ie: a med student or anyone who interviews well and can give feedback) -Read the book, practice with the person (realistic role play), take their feedback and edit your answer. I couldn't always find someone to practice with so sometimes I would pretend someone was in the room, time my self, and hope others didn't think I was hallucinating. -Wash, rinse repeat on a regular basis (I did 1-2 hours per day for a few weeks). Only time will make your comfortable, confident, and cunning at MMI. See attachment for the Big List of MMI Questions, do as many as possible. For traditional interviews: -List ALL of your interesting personal stories (including ABS) -create a cool narrative (even if its short) for each one -incorporate a CanMEDS characteristic into each one (don't force it, it should be obvious from the way you tell the story) -Look up the top health/social news stories of the last 2-3 years and develop an opinion/narrative about those -Practice with someone (realistic, timed, role play), or alone (but still outloud) if need be -Wash, rinse repeat on a regular basis (I did 1-2 hours per day for a few weeks). Only time will make your comfortable, confident, and cunning at traditional interviews. See attachment for the Big List of Traditional Interview questions, do as many as possible General: -Start doing realistic practice early, even if you're still new to interviews, and do it frequently. -In my opinion you should start prepping for MMIs before you prep for traditional interviews, because the MMI "mindset" (fair, balanced, thoughtful) will be invaluable for traditional interview questions. -If you can walk in confident and calm, you've won half the battle. Practice this every time your practice interviewing. -Learning to interview well is a life-changing experience. It teaches you how to connect and interact better, it teaches you how to summarize sell your personal brand in a short period of time, it teaches you how to see what's important in someone else's eyes, and as a PhD student who is about to defend, it taught me how to make my research meaningful to pretty much everyone. Best of luck to all the MD hopefuls. If you have questions, please post in this thread instead of PMing me. If you have a question, chances are someone else will too, so it saves me from having to answer it multiple times and helps more people out. Plus, someone else might have a better answer than me. PS: I don't know who the original compiler/poster of these "Big Lists" is, but if someone does please link them so they can be credited for their awesome work Big List of MMI Questions.pdf Big List of All Traditionl Interview Questions.pdf
  3. Hi! For all of the other OT QY Applicants who have received interview invitations, would you be willing to meet up to practice going over MMI practice questions?
  4. Hi everyone! Last summer, I wrote the MCAT and scored 500, so I need to rewrite it for the schools I want to apply to. The thing is, last summer I was working full-time in a lab and really struggled to balance working and studying for the MCAT (cause I had signed up for one of those prep courses). This year, I was offered the same position in the lab and it would be full time. I really want to work for the experience and it strengthens my CV; however, I'm not really sure how to balance the working and studying? Any advice? This summer is my last chance to write the MCAT if I want to be able to apply during my 4th yr undergrad. Is it too risky to work and study knowing how bad I did on the first one. Is it worth giving up the research position to just study for the MCAT all 4 months? Any advice? Thanks!

  10. Over this winter break, I'll be taking some time to prepare for (hopefully) some IIs coming in late January and I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for common interview questions to have answers prepared beforehand. Thank you! Happy holidays!
  11. Hey guys, I'm completely new to the MCAT preparation and was wondering if anyone would give bit of guidance as to where I should start. How long do people usually prepare for prior to the exam? Any recommendation for the studying materials? (ex. if books, the company/year) Are classes/courses recommended? Thank you!
  12. Bonjour tout le monde, Y'a t il un moyen de se préparer pour les MEM selon vous ?
  13. So, I live up north in BC and have a bit of a hard time getting together for MMI prep with other people because of that. As such I was thinking that a good way to prep for MMI would be to use either skype or post videos of timed answers and have people respond and/or make response answer videos. I am only going to do this though if there is any interest as there really isn't any need for me to do this without outside input. Anyone interested in skyping and/or video practice holla at ya boy lol. Seriously though let me know.
  14. Hi everyone! I was hoping to start a new forum for the class of future class of 2019 (I know it's alittle early haha). I am just in my second year of undergrad, and I am planning on applying for the class of 2019, even though I won't stand a chance. Soooooo, I was also hoping to get information on preparing for the interviews of UCVM and WCVM! I heard that the two universities have different format for the interview, so if anyone had more information, please share! MMI is another issue It could be just me having difficulties finding materials, but does anyone have any source that could be used for preparing purposes? If you had answer to any of the questions above, I would be very grateful for information. If you are already a student, please share! Thanks everyone!
