  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. So... deep breath that it is finally over. The process was pretty relaxed and overall well done in my opinion. Now we have the next two weeks to coast and wait for our decision. How is everyone feeling?
  10. Title pretty much says it all. I'm a MS1 at Schulich, and last year I made a website with all my MCAT resources and all my interview resources too. I'm guessing if you're reading this you've already done the MCAT, but you might find my interview prep materials useful. You can find it all here - https://ultimatepremedpackage.wordpress.com/interviewing/ Please let me know if you have any questions! Of course, I can't tell you what questions they asked me, etc., but I can give general information about the day or whatever. I might see some of you for your interview day, but if not - good luck! You'll do great!
  11. Has anyone received interview invites or rejects yet? Anyone know when those will be sent out? This week or next?
  12. Hi everyone! Congrats on getting a spot for the interview! Just wanted to create a fourm to share sample questions with each other and practice If you've done the Kira interview already, could you also share how was the experience, did you feel ready enough from the practice questions, etc? I'm also curious, are they actual job-like interview interview questions or are they MMI/scenario-based questions? Thanks and good luck!
  13. Un message en français suivra. Have you received or do you know a friend that has received an interview offer from uOttawa's medical school this cycle? For the second year in a row, the uOttawa Black Medical Student Association is offering mock interviews to students coming from underrepresented communities and disadvantaged backgrounds hoping that through vertical and longitudinal mentorship, we can build more diverse community of medical students at uOttawa.

Each interview will last about 50 minutes including feedback. As we are a non-for-profit club at the University of Ottawa, this opportunity is given free of charge. Pass along the word! Interested applicants should contact us at ottawa.bmsa@gmail.com before February 10th to inquire an interview! Thank you and we can't wait to meet you! -------------------------------------------------------- Avez-vous reçu ou connaissez-vous un ami qui a reçu une offre d'entrevue de la faculté de médecine de l'Université d'Ottawa pour ce cycle d'application? Pour la deuxième année consécutive, L’Association des étudiants en médecine noirs de l’Université d'Ottawa (uOttawa BMSA) offre des entrevues simulées aux étudiants issus de communautés sous-représentées et de milieux défavorisés, dans l’espoir qu’avec le mentorat vertical et longitudinal, nous pourrons créer une communauté plus diversifiée d’étudiants en médecine à l'Université d'Ottawa. Afin de vous offrir une expérience semblable au réel, les entrevues seront données en personne par des membres bénévoles de la BMSA sur le campus Roger Guindon de l'Université d'Ottawa.

  18. Hello to all my fellow UBC Med applicants of 2018/2019! As we inch closer and closer to December, I decided to make this thread to just get it out of the way, and also to initiate discussion around how we are all feeling. As of now, I am not sure exactly when the updates will roll out. There are two options. Interview decisions will either be released the week of December 3rd or the week of December 10th. I'm going 70-30 on week of the 3rd since usually they release decisions the first week of December that involves a Monday. However, December 3rd may be too early; the admissions committee may want to look at a few things in more detail, finalize decisions, etc. which will require a bit more time – therefore, if it's not the week of the 3rd, it will definitely be the week of the 10th. Based on the pattern from the last few cycles, this is how I'm guessing decisions will be released: Week of December 3rd: Monday, December 3rd – Regrets Wednesday, December 5th – Early Invites Thursday, December 6th – Regular Invites OR Week of December 10th: Monday, December 10th – Regrets Wednesday, December 12th – Early Invites Thursday, December 13th – Regular Invites Whether we receive an interview invitation or rejection, I encourage everyone to write a post giving some description on what scores they've received, what sort of extracurricular activities they've completed/are still part of, what sort of achievements/awards/research they've accomplished, and so forth. This will essentially help yourself reflect on your application and help others down the line, both current and prospective applicants. At the end of the day, we will all hopefully be colleagues eventually – so, why not start now in helping each other. Let's stick with the format, described below, as much as possible when we are writing our posts. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - TIME STAMP: Interview Invite or Regrets: Early or Regular Deadline: GPA or AGPA (if applicable): MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Geography (IP/OOP): Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): NAQ: AQ: TFR: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - So, how's everyone feeling?? I'm nervous about the NAQ drops a bunch of people experienced last cycle! From what I've heard, lots of people had semi-to-significantly dropped in their NAQ score compared to 2 cycles ago, anywhere between 2-8 points drop in NAQ . Hopefully, things pan out for the better this year. Basically, it comes down to surviving that awful Monday! I get plenty of emails throughout the day... Every time I get that email notification sound on my phone, this will be my reaction:

    UofT Interview

    Anyone else suspects invites would come out by the end of today ? Last year, they said end of of Feb, yet we got the invites on the 10th. This year, they said mid January and it’s either this Friday or next Friday imo, given that invites are traditionally released on a Friday, just minutes before 5 pm ... Any input on this ?

  22. Sooo now that CASPER is finished (and miraculously seemed to go ok for someone like me whose French was quite rusty...) would anyone be interested in prepping for a potential French interview in Toronto or online? Also, could previous applicants or current students in the French Stream kindly give suggestions on the best ways to prepare for the interview? Any specific prep companies or resources? I think I will need a lot of prep and help to express myself well during the interview if I am lucky enough to receive one. Merci!
  23. Hey everyone! I am applying to Dal this summer and planning on writing the MCAT. Anyone interested in meeting to chat about their application and/or studying for the MCAT?
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
