  1. Hi, I'm offering some help for students who are looking for advice on CARS, MMI/CASPER and application prep.. I'm a non-traditional applicant (no science background) who gained admission to my top medical school on my first application, with only one write of the MCAT. I'm willing to share some tips & tricks that made me successful in the process in a tutoring session. CASPER/MMI/APPLICATION SUPPORT I had a great CARS score and performed well on CASPER and the MMI.The secret to my success was the training I did to prepare myself psychologically and strategically for the application process. I am sure there are many great premed students who would be wonderful doctors but are failing again and again to be admitted into a program. It's not a lack of brains - it's a lack of strategy. In preparing for the MMI, CARS and CASPER, I developed an effective, efficient and reasonable strategy that allowed me to navigate the process successfully while working full-time. CARS TUTORING The CARS (verbal reasoning) section of the MCAT is a major stumbling block for many premed hopefuls. So many hardworking students find that their efforts are not translating into results and that one section stands between them and their dream of medical school The fact is that mastering CARS is an art and a science. Most students use a brute force approach which involves months of grueling repetition and ends in frustration. With the right strategy, approach and resources I scored a 130 (98th percentile) with only 3 weeks of preparation. I found the right approach and practiced it to perfection. I also used psychological techniques to train myself perform to my fullest on the exam. This is not my first experience with standardized testing. I also performed well enough on the LSAT to gain admission into the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. I spent years in law school and in corporate law refining my verbal reasoning and critical thinking skills under pressure. I understand how frustrating and difficult it can be to look for the right approach to CARS. However, my law training and LSAT work helped me quickly find the formula to ace CARS. Feel free to get in touch by private message if you are interested in help.
  2. Since CASPer is a fairly new component of UBC DMD, I don't really know where to start preparing for it. Does anyone have any tip regarding how to prep for it? Any info regarding the test is appreciated.
  3. Avec une CRU de 40, combien dois-je viser au TECT?
  4. Hey premeds, I have been having this question for a couple of months but cannot seem to find anything about it. When given an ethical case sometimes you as a participant have the option of helping someone by risking your safety or spending your money (this is what i meant by self harm). Do you think this is frowned upon by the MMI markers or just something that can sometimes be when a life is in danger. 2 cases that come to my mind: 1) Your friend asks to use the residents only gym at your apartment complex. ^There are multiple things you can do one of which is to offer to pay for your friend's gym expenses elsewhere. 2) You knock on a door and hear footsteps and a thump (presumably the person has fallen on the floor). There might be fire or some other hazard. ^ Here, again you do the usual stuff of calling the emergency services and such, but is it okay to also say that "After looking for potential dangers and making sure that the environment is safe I would try to gain access into the house". As you can see both of these involve some risk to the participant (me) at the advantage of saving lives or making your friends happy. What do you say? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi pre-med and pre-dental students, It is extremely useful to have someone who already gone through the process to help you. This is why I'm here: I would like to help you with your application, CV, letter of intent, interview (traditional or MMI), and CASPer. My background: I'm a medical student in Quebec. I was also a dental student for the past 5 years. I'm actually a dentist now, but I'm not practicing dentistry because I'm attending a medical school. I have a lot of experience in MMI, CV and letter of intent because of my previous application experience. I was also in the admission committee when I was a 3rd-year student. I have read many premeds' letters, CV, and practice MMI with them. For the interviews (MMI and traditional), I usually spend the first 20-30 min giving my students some tips/tricks that they need to know (including different type of stations + systematic approach to deal with different types of scenarios). And then we practice with mock interviews. At the end of each scenario, I give them my evaluation (there are specific criteria) and feedback/suggestions. I've already helped a few premed students, and I always have a lot of pleasure doing this service. I usually do Skype with my students, however, I'm open to other alternatives. I charge 55$ (Canadian) per hour. I'm bilingual (English and French). PM me here, or send me an email: dr.wu.dmd.md@outlook.com Best luck for your future endeavours. Dr. Wu, DMD, MD Candidate

  8. Hey guys. I finished my Casper test on the 25th. However, the Casper does not have my McGill ID#, unlike with OMSAS or with Dalhousie in which they have the relevant ID# for. I also did not have to input my CASPER ID# as part of the McGill application. I was wondering if anyone would know that just selecting CASPER to send results to McGill medicine is sufficient for my McGill application to be linked with my CASPER results? Thanks.
  9. Salut, Je vois les demandes d'amission approcher et si j'ai bien compris suite à la demande pour le programme de médecine, je vais devoir faire le Casper/Tect. Est-ce qu'il y a moyen de se préparer pour ça? Si oui, comment? Avez-vous des sources/lectures à me suggerer? Est-ce que quelqu'un sait la pondération cote vs casper vs MEMs pour médecine? Merci d'avance!

    CASPer - Dictation

    Hey guys, This is for a friend of mine: Does anyone know if we can dictate into our MacBook instead of typing the answer ? Are there any restrictions or guidelines in place for this ? It seems that it is possible from a technical perspective, when we do the system check on CASPer website. Thanks Edit:Test done. No need for further comments. Thank you.

    CASPER group practice

    Hey Future Doctors, Just wondering if anyone wants to practice for CASPER (English) together? PM me if interested. Hoping to start on October 7th.
  14. J'ai un vague souvenir d'avoir lu quelque part que Sherbrooke utilisera peut-être le CASPer à 15% dans la pré-sélection en 2018. Est-ce que je rêve, ou est-ce une information plausible/fiable?

    CASPer Test?

    Hey guys, has anyone here have experience with the Dental school CASPer test? Do they give dentist scenarios, or is it more just general? Also, how did you guys prep for this? I know people say you don't need to prep/study for this, but I'm not great with taking timed tests and I'm not feeling too strong for this exam as of right now. I'm planning to take the September 17 exam (this Sunday). Is anyone else taking the test on this day? And does anyone have any experience with prep programs? I'm planning to go with BeMo CASPer test prep (probably the 1st or 2nd tier). Thanks for any help/advice!

  19. For those of us applying to both Canadian + American med schools: do we write the CASPER test once, or are there different versions of the CASPER test?
  20. Hi guys, Basically what the title suggests. When are we supposed to write CASPer? I think scores are due by November 8th, according to the CASPer website, but how far in advance do you have to write it?

  23. Salut, Certains d'entre vous sont peut-être déjà au courant, mais il y aura vraisemblablement des changements concernant l'admission 2017 au programme de pharmacie de l'Université Laval. Pour le moment il semble que ces changements touche seulement le Pharm.D pour ce qui est de l'UL, mais il sera appliqué à plusieurs programmes à l'UdeM (médecine, med vet, etc.) Voir lien pour l'Université de Montréal : http://forums.premed101.com/index.php?/topic/93006-test-devaluation-des-compétences-transversales-en-ligne/ Donc il s'agit de l'insertion du test situationnel CASPer afin d"évaluer les dossiers des candidats. Le test se fait en ligne et a pour but dévaluer les compétences transversales des candidats comme le professionnalisme, l'intégrité, l'éthique, etc. L'évaluation des dossiers des candidats se fera désormais de cette manière : Collégien : 80% pour l'excellence du dossier scolaire et 20% pour le test CASPer ; Universitaire (bac non-complété) : 65% pour l'excellence du dossier scolaire, 15% pour le questionnaire autobiographique et 20% pour le test de CASPer ; Universitaire (bac complété) : 55% pour l'excellence du dossier scolaire, 25% pour le questionnaire autobiographique et 20% pour le test de CASPer. À noter aussi que tout les gens ayant déposés une demande d'admission devront passer le test sans exception. Votre opinion concernant ces changements ?
