  5. Hi! The new calculation of the R-Score have put big doubts on the shoulders of cegepians who were always used to the ''34+ you're invited''. That's why I want to have a gross idea of the new cut-off with this thread and see how it has increased (if it has) and if a 34 is still competitive. R-Score : EC's : Invited/Not invited : Thank you!! And good luck on your MMIs^^
  6. For anyone else out there who obsesses over numbers, I did some statistics based on a 3-year average (2015-2017), with numbers plucked from the official dean's reports (2015) (2016) (2017). Every year on average, there are: 2,577 total applicants ... (2,473 + 2,775 + 2,483) / 3 449 candidates invited to interview ... (457 + 441 + 449) / 3) 171 seats filled (133 in London, 38 in Windsor) - this has been the same for the last 3 years. A first year class with a demograph of 58.3% male and 41.7% female ... Males: (61 + 59 + 55) / 3 ... Females: (39 + 41 + 45) / 3 17.4% of all applicants get an interview ... (449/2,577)*100 6.6% of all applicants get a seat ... (171/2,577) * 100 38.1% of interviewees get a seat ... (171/449) * 100 NOTE: These statistics do not consider waitlist movement, which can actually be huge in some years (e.g. the 2017 Dean's reports suggest that, for applicants from SW Ontario alone, 72 were offered acceptance into the program, while only 42 of those accepted the offer - that's a waitlist movement of 30 people!) Feel free to check the math, add anything I missed, or discuss below.

  10. Hello! I tried to email Queen's Admissions to get a clear and accurate response but however, they were unable to provide me with further clarification. I am hoping that I'll receive some clear answers here! My question is: If I take additional courses (i.e Athabasca University) after the completion of my undergraduate degree, will the courses that I take count towards my 2 Year WGPA EVEN IF these courses are individual undergraduate courses that DO NOT count towards an additional degree or towards my completed degree? As long as these courses: - Fulfill the requirement for full-time study (3-5 courses per semester) - Completed between September to April I plan on taking additional courses according to these guidelines however, because there is no formal term structure to follow, I would plan on simply taking these courses according to the following format: - 3 to 5 courses between September to December - 3 to 5 courses between January to April I apologize if this question has been asked already! I was going through the forum and was unable to find the answer to this specific question. Thank you in advance!
  11. Worried about your upcoming interviews? Want some extra pointers on presentation, organization, and approach outside of practicing by yourself or with pre-med groups? I am offering online interview prep over Skype and can help identify your strengths and areas of improvement. I am quite honest in my feedback to my students and if I see that we aren't meeting the same progress goals, I am happy to help you find other avenues of help. I am a current medical student and interviewed at schools in both Canada and the US. I am familiar with MMI, MPI, panel, and traditional interviews. Send me a message if you have a quick question or two about interviews in general, would always be happy to answer.

  14. Hi, I was wondering if anybody tought (or did) drink few shots before interviews. Just enough to still be in control. But enough to be confident. I was thinking that it will boost your confidence in the interviews, you'll respond with more tact and look more sincere but still be in control to be able to think of your answers. Overall, you'll be more confident and have more presence. Is it a good idea ? It seems like one to me... Please give your opinions

  18. Hello, I thought it may be helpful to start a thread for non-traditional applicants since it may be difficult to find this information in the regular invite thread.

  21. Hey everyone! I was a YorkU student who is going to UofT med next year. I got accepted out of my third year. As you all know, tuition is very expensive and I need to make some money on the side. Thus, I am offering different services such as OMSAS application review, tutoring, interview prep, general consultation sessions etc. Here is a link to my kijiji ad: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-tutor-language-lessons/markham-york-region/premed-services-for-anyone-who-wants-to-get-into-medical-school/1083977349?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true Message me if interested! The official email I use is in the ad
  22. Hi everyone! I decided to create this post so that anyone applying to the UofA dentistry program this year can share 1) when they hear about interviews (time stamp & date of email), and 2) their stats (DAT scores, GPA). From what I've read, it sounds like interview invites usually come out today or Tuesday, but according to the admissions office, they can be sent out as late as the end of next week. *Fingers crossed* for sooner rather than later.
  23. Just a quick question, Are interview invites/rejections typically sent out as emails? Or would they be posted online (for instance, on Minerva for applicants to McGill)? I believe it would be by email, but just thought I'd check! Haha wouldn't want to miss that I am particularly wondering about U of T, UWO and McGill Thanks!
  24. Hi guys, There is an interview prep session organized by University of Toronto Career Centre on January 13, 2014 (6-7:30pm) at St. George campus. This is for UofT students, and you have to register at https://cln.utoronto.ca/myAccount/events/sgevents.htm. The session will feature effective interview strategies for "must-know" questions. They will also distribute most up-to-date interview prep handouts edited by UofT Faculty of Medicine alumni. Best of luck!
  25. So, interviews are fast approaching being on the 15th of November, and so I thought I'd start this thread if any applicants have any questions for any MUN med students that might frequent this site. Good luck to all the applicants, and we can't wait to meet you on the 15th
