  1. Hi, I attend University of Saskatchewan, and I am looking for a MMI Practice Group. I would be perfectly okay to meeting online through WebEx or Zoom, due to COVID. I am applying to UBC/USask/UofT/Ottawa/Queens! Please shoot me a message so we can set something up Thanks!
  2. Hey, I was just wondering what you guys think will happen with the interviews this year. The pandemic still has a massive impact on our lives and I've started thinking about wether or not we'd have MMI's this year. Do you think that the MMI will be replaced by the CASPER like last year? Or will the Universities be able to organize the MMI's and respect physical distancing measures?... Maybe it's still too early to ask this sort of question but it's been on my mind since the interviews were cancelled for the 2020 admission cycle. (I'm a CEGEP student Btw)
  3. I've been looking around for some ways to practice the MMI after being waitlisted last year. i really wasn't used to the webcamming so was just browsing around for online practice solutions. Came across some consulting companies but they were so... outdated? And it didn't really feel like a real MMI either. It's hard to explain. This MMI question was shared on some MMI practice groups and thought I'd share with PM101! https://www.videoath.com/promos/sample-mmi-question
  4. Hi guys I had a question for those who have been able to secure a two+ consecutive interviews at UOttawa. Assuming you were not successful with your interview the first time around, when you reapplied... 1) Did you guys change your application significantly or was it more or less the same 2) What do you think your chances are of securing an interview the following year? 3) Are there individuals who had an interview one year and was not able to get one the next year? Thank you guys very much for your help. If you guys know anyone who might not be on these forums but have been in a similar situation, feel free to share!! Thanks again
  5. Since the early application deadline is coming up, thought I would ask how interviews are scheduled at UBC. For in person interviews, what are the possible time slots applicants get to choose from? It would be nice to know since I might have to travel and stay overnight. If the interviews are conducted virtually, do we just talk to a webcam and record our answers or will we be able to interact with an interviewer?
  6. IP / OOP / International Result: Invite / Reject / Waitlist for Interview cGPA: sGPA: DAT (PAT and MDT): ECs: Year: UG (what year), Masters, PhD
  7. Hey OT/PT hopefuls, I am anxiously awaiting to hear back about interview invitations from various PT Schools across Canada. I study in a small town so there are not many other prospective PT/OT students around to do mock interviews, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in making a facebook group (or similar) where we do video chats with Mock MMI/Answer Feedback? I've read about the importance of actually practicing answering questions and think this could be very helpful for students in a similar situation! *given that most if not all in-person interviews are cancelled I did not make a group, but may be a great idea for next year!*

  9. Hello Prospective Pharmacy Student! Imagine putting in every ounce of energy you have into your pharmacy school application only to wake up to an email containing a rejection letter - it can be incredibly discouraging. What's more is that there is such limited information available to guide you through your application process, and to advise you what's most important in your application. Is it your prerequisite GPA? Your cumulative GPA? Is it your work experience? Your interview or letter of intent? I can tell you by far the biggest mistake that applicants make is focusing all of their efforts into their grades and academic standing. About Me I'm a 2017 graduate from the University of Alberta and the owner/manager of an innovative, highly-clinical based independent pharmacy practice in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In 2020, I was recognized with a prestigious APEX award from the Alberta College of Pharmacy and Alberta Pharmacists Association. Over the past few years, I've held a 100% success rate in coaching several different applicants towards their admission into the Faculty of Pharmacy program at the UofA using my extensive combined experience as a pharmacy graduate, pharmacy owner, and clinical pharmacist. My Approach A successful applicant is backed by a strong, well-articulated letter of intent, and interview, which is where most applicants fail to stand out. I help coach students 6 to 8 months before their target application deadline by giving them proven strategies to ensure their applications are well-rounded enough to give them the competitive advantage they need to stand out from the hundreds to thousands of other applicants applying each year. Outside of this, I also help coach students towards finding the pharmacy volunteer / work experience they need to truly enhance their application, which I understand can be an incredibly daunting process. Services and Availability Given my busy pharmacy practice and schedule, I only have the ability to offer a limited number of students the opportunity to work with me at this time, as some spots have already been reserved for those who had reached out to me since my original post in the Pharmacy Discussions forum. And so, if you're serious about being competitive with your application this upcoming year or in the upcoming future, and you're interested in working with me, shoot me an email (choi.chung913@gmail.com) and I'd be happy to meet with you virtually or in-person for an initial consultation to learn more about your unique needs, discuss how I'm able to help, what my competitive rates look like, and to see if there's a possibility we can work together. Looking forward to helping you reach your goal of getting into the pharmacy program!
  10. Has anyone gotten rejected with an above average interview? What did you improve and how drastically to gain admission the following cycle(s)? Assuming some things are fixed (i.e. GPA) but others are malleable, such as EC descriptions/additions and MCAT re-write. I am wondering if anyone found that other things such as changing references also made a difference.
  11. In case you didn't see it yet, here is the UofA mmi video for 2020 As you can see in this video, we work hard but we also like to have a lot of fun too. I can tell you from personal experience that if you are lucky enough to get a spot in the next little while, you will have an awesome time here. The classes feel like one big family and close knit community where we all help each other out..professors I have had, have been knowledgeable, kind and genuinely want to help you succeed. There are so so so many extracurricular, shadowing, and research opportunities no matter what your interests are. Hang in there guys!
  12. 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
  13. Would anyone like to start/join a Calgary based MMI practice group for the 2020 interview cycle?
  14. This is a project that myself (Christopher) and a classmate of mine (Ziad) started last September. We've had a lot of positive feedback from people who listen, so I wanted to share it with you here once more. It's a totally free resource and we have two episodes dedicated to the medical school interview; what you should be doing to prepare, what to expect on the day, etc. Please feel free to check us out on Facebook, or listen on any major platform (Apple Music, Spotify, Google Podcasts), and I'm happy to answer any specific questions too if you have them, just shoot me a message here. Here are links to the two episodes that are specific to interviewing (but be sure to check out all our other episodes too; we have episodes on CASPer, MCAT, extracirriculars, and more!): Pre-Interview Preparations: https://spoti.fi/2OpKGNj Day-of Interview: https://spoti.fi/399WdZ7 −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− Also, if you haven't checked out my premed website, then here is the link - it also has a BUNCH of interview prep materials on it too, again all free to use! https://ultimatepremedpackage.ca/interviewing/ -Christopher

  16. 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 it all here: UltimatePremedPackage.ca I hope this is helpful for you all! Please let me know if you have any questions or queries.
  17. Hi all I am starting this thread for posting interview date trade requests (any school or specialty). I think having a single thread for this might make trade requests easier to search for. Please post as per format below: school interviewing at: specialty: current interview date: date would like to switch to: any additional notes:
  18. Hi guys, As the title says, how many people do you think get passed the GPA and MCAT cutoffs for detailed ABS review. Knowing about 3000 apps get submitted each cycle. Also does anyone know what is the rough best two year GPA cutoff? Thanks.

  22. I was just wondering if anyone had any comments who had their interview this past weekend (March 2nd/3rd) at Western. Any surprises (not about the questions, I just mean overall)? Anyone go the socials on Fri/Sat night? How does the day go? Overall experience? etc. Thanks!
  23. Hi everyone, Based on older posts, it looks like McGill previously included an interview as part of their admissions process for both its OT or PT programs. However, I can't seem to find anything to suggest that they require an interview this year. Can anyone confirm whether or not interviews are required this year for either program? Thanks and good luck!
  24. Looking for someone who wants to prep for u of t mpi interview over skype, or do in person prep in Richmond Hill. We can do mock interview, then switch roles. Pm me or comment if interested. Thanks
