  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Hi! For all of the other OT QY Applicants who have received interview invitations, would you be willing to meet up to practice going over MMI practice questions?
  7. Heyyyy I saw the DDS students were having a post interview chill discussion... So, friends who had Feb 10 interviews, how did it go?
  8. Is anyone else (unreasonably) worried about how they performed on the written component of the interview? I have read/heard on these forums and from some current students that it is not supposed to be a BIG DEAL and that it is likely(?) a pass/fail component, but I find myself worried about it nonetheless.

    Waterloo Interviews 2018

    As interview invites just went out this week, I figured I'd start a thread for people who want to chat about interview prep! Anyone been through the process within the last few years and have any advice?
  10. Hi everyone! I've been looking into the difference between applying to the French vs. English stream at Ottawa med. I understand that the French stream is less competitive so I was thinking of applying for that stream. French is not my first language but I can express myself well enough to make it through I believe. Has anyone who has studied English applied for the French stream and gotten an interview? How did things go and how strict are they with assessing your proficiency in writing/speaking? I would really appreciate any advice/help! Also, how important are extracurriculars with OttawaMed?
  11. Hey, I've been hearing people get invitations to interview for Queens and McMaster and I'm just wondering- what does it mean not to hear anything at all? Admittedly, this past cycle I was not a strong applicant at all but I applied to NOSM, Queens and McMaster anyway. I got a rejection email from NOSM and I still have not received anything from Queens or McMaster. Is this strange? They do HAVE to send a rejection email right? I've checked junk and spam and searched for admissions in my email multiple times but haven't found anything- not sure what to make of this. Anyone have an idea of what's going on?

    Waitlist

    Does anyone know if there is a good/bad wait list for the French stream? If so, how much do those wait lists usually move up?
  13. Hi everyone! I am starting this thread because we should be hearing from McGill about interviews pretty soon. From previous threads, applicants have heard back around Jan 21st, and admissions said they should send them out before Jan. 26 so basically, we should hear from this by the end of the week. Please post below if you were accepted or rejected, IP or OOP, GPA and hours of volunteer/extra-curricular work Good luck to everyone!
  14. 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!
  15. And so it begins. The waiting game one more time. Good luck to all of us and I sincerely wish that come March 1st we should all have our dream come true.
  16. Is there anyone in Toronto who has an interview at UofA and who would like to get together for practice? It would be particularly beneficial if we could get at least one person who's been through this experience at UofA before but this is also a call to all the Edmonton naive (like me).
  17. Hey how does everyone feel post-interview? I'm feeling like I definitely bombed 2-3 of the stations...but who knows maybe it'll all turn out alright!

    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 ?

  21. Hi All, Applied in medicine at UDEM, ULAVAL and UDES as a university candidate. My Question to you : do you know when we are supposed to start getting invites for the MMI interview? Also, if you have received a response (and if you wish to share of course), it would be interesting to know your grade and the response you received. Thx J
  22. heyyy comment or message me if anyone in Vancouver or surrounding areas is down to practice for a bit, perhaps relatively consistently? Maybe we can get a group going like the Toronto people
  23. 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.
  24. Hey guys! I loved premed101 when preparing for my interviews. check out my new blog to a) get out of the premed101 bubble for a bit b ) let me know what you want me to write about in the future! I have a few tips, mixed in with a bit of personal experience on this first post. Very happy to answer questions on the blog (link below) too! I will check back on this post periodically too to help out with any questions re: interview. Much love and best wishes as you undertake your interviews <3 http://palpitationpending.blogspot.ca/
  25. Hi, I wanted to get some opinions on the use of prompt questions in the interview. I know at Calgary they explicitly say that using prompt questions are perfectly fine, and in fact if you were running out of things to say it would be completely reasonable to ask for one. There would be no effect to your score if you used all the prompt questions or none (i.e. talked all the way through), all that would matter was overall content and ability to communicate. Is this similar at UBC? I find that I have much better interactions when talking about complex topics when I have a back and forth with someone, instead of talking straight for 4 - 5 min. I'm able to be more engaging, and I usually either disagree or add something meaningful when someone else brings up a point. Conversely, I sometimes struggle to be completely organized with all my thoughts on a topic, ready to go at the beginning - especially if I know a lot about the topic. I can do it, if need be, but I much prefer conversations. Is it risky to rely too much on prompt questions though? I don't know if I've ever heard UBC say one way or the other. To be clear, I realize that for more personal questions (e.g. tell me about a time where you experienced adversity), you're expected to talk for some time and reflect. I recognize where there are some instances where you just need to talk a lot, but for some question types, I find that I'm really boring if I just go through a pros/cons list really quickly.
