  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. I'm excited to start my medical training this coming August, but I will be coming from Ontario, with a significant other who has major concerns about our relationship. He is aiming to finish his graduate studies by this summer, but depending on his supervisor, he is unsure exactly when he will be done. This means that we will have to do long distance for at least a couple of months, which he has said since we started dating that he does not think he can handle a long distance relationship - fair enough. On top of that, he is also worried about the time commitment for medical school, and I will have no time for him. We have discussed the possibility of him moving out to BC with me, but understandably, he is concerned that he may be unhappy living there, as his whole life is here in Ontario. It has always been his dream to work and settle down in Toronto. With his field especially, he thinks that he is more likely to be able to build a successful career in Toronto. Moving out to BC with me would mean that he is sacrificing his dream for my dream - this is what he told me. This would be a huge burden for me to carry. Anyway, sorry for spewing out all my personal problems out here, but the question I have is, does UBC provide any support/have any support groups for spouses/partners...etc.? I can't seem to find any information regarding that, so I'm not very hopeful, but I thought I should ask anyways. I have read that a lot of medical schools generally have support groups or resources for spouses and partners of medical students. If UBC offers something like this, I can see how this can potentially help with the situation that I am in right now. Thanks a bunch!
