  1. Hi! I am a UBC med student and longtime poster on these boards on my main account. I am looking for a small group of applicants to build a long term client coaching relationship with, either in person or through Skype for the upcoming year for application review, interviews, etc! These following qualities will distinguish me from other coaches and professional application services; 1. Coming from a hard financial background myself, I understand the intense financial difficulties that applicants may face in seeking affordable help and the amount of uncertainty this process may bear. I will only charge my normal tutoring fee of just $40 per hour (regardless of Skype or real life). 2. I have 3 cycles worth of application experience- each with mixed results and gradually tuned my application from getting interviews from 0 schools to 75% of all schools I applied to. I have interviewed at writing and EC heavy schools including Calgary (OOP) and UofT 3. I have an academic background in a non-science field that demands extremely strong written, oral communication and networking 4. I have had interviews applying both as a non-trad and traditional applicant. I can advise you on how to optimally market your experiences 5. I believe in transparency and accessibility. I will tell you anything you wish to know about my experiences, within limits of the confidentiality signed during interviews. Feel free to shoot me up with quick questions after we begin our sessions over social media, but anything that requires a large amount of time or personalized review will require a meeting. 6. I will read your materials within 1-2 days then talk with you about them and how to improve during meetings. I am in Toronto for the summer and will be in Vancouver over the school year, so I am open to meeting students from both cities but I prefer meeting students in person whenever possible. I am only looking to take up to 10 students at this time, on a first come first serve basis. Please private message me if you are interested with your name and basic contact information.
  2. Does anyone have any experience navigating the course load discussions? It says you need to have taken 10 courses in your last two years of undergrad (so 5 each term). My program would split courses into double so they could squeeze more classes into our degree (ie. FSN 706 would be two classes on two different subjects and we'd get two different marks). I did what most students did and did all my electives in my last year part time. So... i don't meet that course load requirement. They said they will allow for it if your program is structured differently, but it's a B. Des, so I feel like they won't be familiar with it. Anyone ever navigate this? Wondering if/who I should maybe sit down with to discuss whether I'm even able to apply... I also graduated way back in 2013 if that matters and have an MA since then
  3. Hi everyone, I was just curious; I know as well as the next Pre-Med student that a stellar MCAT score is a must if you even want to be taken seriously by the admissions offices. I was just wondering, even though many Canadian schools take the most recent MCAT score (and US schools...? do they do this too, forgive me as I have not looked into their analysis of the test yet) does it reflect poorly on you in any way, if you have a very poor MCAT score in one of you two or more attempts? Also, do they even attempt to look at an increase in performance if you attempt it more than once?

  5. As a Canadian student who has spent all of their time, research and effort applying to medical schools within Canada, I would like to know if anyone here could inform me if it is simply too late to apply within the American system? From what I understand, their system admission has a rolling admissions process beginning during the summer and going until late fall, and that I would be at a significant disadvantage now applying late as an international. Regardless, is it too late to apply within AMCAS now at this point? If anyone has some insight into this system or an answer I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
  6. In Ontario, do some schools look for something specific in reference letters as opposed to others? (ex: proof of good oral communication, perseverance in adversity)?
  7. Hi! I'm applying to Ontario Schools and I'm working on the online application. I understand it is ok to use short forms/ abbreviations but I was just wondering if I should skip spaces between commas to save space. What worked for you/ would you recommend? Example: Which is better? 1) Tutor Helped tutor students,went over material.... OR 2) Tutor Helped tutor students, went over material

  9. Hey everyone, I've posted here before about whether I should apply this year or to retake my MCAT. I've decided to take the new MCAT, but considering the timing I was only able to schedule a late date (September 12th). Now I know that for american medical schools that we should apply earlier for a better chance, but I was wondering if you guys think I should give it a try anyways. Stats: aamc gpa: 3.97 Mcat: assuming atleast a 510 Application date: october 1st EC's: worked at brigham and women's hospital in boston doing research (one paper and another possibly, none first author) shadowed an OR surgeon and a clinical anesthesiologist (just once each) started a non profit organization that donated clothes to local shelters volunteered 3 years at a soup kitchen started a website with a friend that has raised over $50,000 for children in south america and africa community outreach program in Cuzco, Peru for a month worked a clinical research job for 4 months (in allergy research) Should I give it a chance this year? EDIT: forgot to mention that to take that 1 year research position in Boston, i've been out of school for as of 1 year. Thanks
