  1. Join us! The Pre-Medicine Diversity Symposium is an annual UBC faculty-sponsored event designed to encourage people from all walks of life to apply to medical school. This event is tailored to applicants who consider themselves ‘non-traditional’ for reasons that may include having a non-science background, applying later in life, having children and family, having financial or personal hardship, or belonging to a demographic underrepresented in medicine. There will be events at all 4 sites in BC - Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria & Prince George. FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/506704993595930/ Google Form RSVP (this confirms your registration): https://forms.gle/Rkgm2exxU4RaQTWi6
  2. Hey everyone! Firstly, a HUGE congratulations to all applicants in the 2019/2020 cycle who finished their interview at UBC during the past couple of weekends!! Take the time to pat yourselves on the back for finishing up with the stressful portion of your applications! It's just a matter of waiting until May -- I sincerely wish you all the best of successes no matter what happens. I can definitely understand how stressful the wait can be though, so if anyone would like to chat via PM, please feel free to message me. It's much easier said than done, but try to distract yourself with something positive, and hopefully the 3 months pass quickly. Speaking of distractions, the Class of 2023 is super excited to be presenting the MD Admissions Video 2020 we've prepared for you, which will be on YouTube in just a couple of days ! Many, many thanks to everyone involved with this project, especially Kevin Z and Melissa K for putting in 300+ hours to direct, film, and edit this masterpiece. I have shared with you the trailer, which was recently published on YouTube. We truly hope you all enjoy what we've prepared, and hope this gives the perfect picture of EXACTLY what the interview process is like for those applying in the future (lol, jk). Cheers!
  3. I saw someone do this last year and thought it was very interesting and figured I might as well start one this year Answers are anonymous! Last year they differentiated between the non-rural and rural seats so I did the same- even though we don't really get to choose what seat we get haha, but I'm assuming it was pertaining to whether you filled out the rural section and think you may have a high RRSS. In addition, if anyone would like to speak to why they are choosing such in the comments I think that could be interesting too

  6. My university record is not exactly the best thing I can showcase, but I think I'm at a point where I could try harder and actually have a chance to study medicine. Here's my record: 1st year: 77% (27 credits) 2nd year: 82% (28 credits) - 1W ( I took the course again in the 2nd semester) 3rd year: 85.5% (30 credits) 4th year: I'm expecting ~ 89% average (30 credits total, 1W) 5th year: I know what to take for GPA-boosting purposes and will likely reach the early 90s. My AGPA with 1st year taken out as of today is 84.1%, although will likely rise to about 85% once I've finished my second-semester courses. My major EC's: - Volunteered at 3 Labs, 1 lab internship (WorkLearn), I started one last month and will likely continue through my 5th year to get something tangible this time. - Founder of non-profit organization - will continue through 5th year and beyond. - 250 hours of community volunteering (continuing for 1.5 years now and will continue for another 1.5) - Freelance Spanish language tutor (volunteer) since HS. Do you think I should do a 5th year?
  7. How does UBC translate the credits I did to their system if I go to U of T and did a full course load- is that not 120 credits? What's a one year course load? Confused how they decide whether I have enough credits to be eligible for weighted GPA

  9. I have read in several places on premed 101 (and heard from several other students) that multiple family medicine programs allow you to add applications to additional sites (within their program) after interviewing. I am having trouble finding reference to this within the carms program description pages. I am wondering if anyone knows: 1. Which FM programs you can add additional site applications to late? (Particularly interested in UBC, Dalhousie, NOSM, and Memorial.) 2. How to logistically do this---assuming within carms portal exactly as you applied for other programs? 3. If we decide BEFORE the interview (i.e. now) that we would like to add a site application if we can do that? Really appreciate the help!
  10. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  11. Did UBC remove the admission statistics? I can't seem to find them anymore
  12. www.MedsHousing.com Check out this new listing and many others https://medshousing.com/properties/fully-furnished-2-bed-suite-in-kelowna-near-hospital/
  13. Hi everyone, Thought it may be helpful to start a thread for prospective UBC PharmD students applying to start the program in September 2019. The application deadline is January 15, 2019. More info can be found on: https://pharmsci.ubc.ca/programs/entry-practice-pharmd-degree If you have any questions/comments/discussion, please post below!
  14. Here is my unusual path to graduation (I don't know if GPA is calculated in the same way over all schools): Year 1: UBC - General Science GPA: 3.75 (had to calculate myself, my average was 81.14%) Year 2: Université de Montréal - Neuroscience GPA: 2.055 Years 3-5: Université de Montréal - Computer Science GPA: 3.41 I would like to apply to medical school after my Master's (most likely ending in 2022), but I'm currently unsure where my best options lie. I realize that currently, my portfolio is not comptetitive. I would like to know if it can be made competitive, without doing a second bachelor's. Should I aim for Alberta schools in order to take advantage of my residency, and Quebec schools since the reserved out-of-province spots may have fewer applicants per spot? Should I get Quebec residency, as I have heard that their system is less competitive overall? Thank you in advance. Quick facts: I am currently on a gap year, starting a Working Holiday Visa abroad in November. In 2020/2021 I am planning to start a Master's in Artificial Intelligence, and I could try to focus my research on medical applications. I took 4 courses per semester in my CompSci degree. I did 1 research internship on autonomous vehicles, and 1 industry internship in industry. I am an Alberta resident, but could gain Quebec residency by working there for 1 year. I speak English and French fluently. For some schools, I am missing courses, for example, a second English course and Organic Chemistry. I believe I could get high grades on these courses were I to take them in preparation for applying. I have not taken the MCAT, but I would have time to study for and take it this fall. I have done some volunteer work, but none medical since second year. I was Vice President of a university cultural association for 4th and 5th year.
  15. I am trying to reapply to UBC med and it is not allowing me to enter anything into the current application. I would think that this is because I need to pay the fee however under that section it says "paid" and has the payment dated from last year (2018). Anyone else having this issue? Thanks
  16. I clearly need to go back to school to bring my gpa up. I'm just conflicted on what would be the best route to do so. I initially planned to go to ubc pharmacy as the courses would be relevant to the medical field and it would be a good back-up career. But apparently there are easier ways to improve ones gpa. I need to stay in B.C as I am already invested in building up my extracurriculars here. So far the options I've found are: -SFU post bacc diploma (criminology looked interesting, gerontology is relevant to me because I have experience with seniors) -UBC masters - I have absolutely zero interest in research, so I would only consider something with only coursework or practicum options. This seems to leave only a Masters in Public Health which honestly seems boring I'm wondering if anyone has any personal experience, knowledge, or an opinion about the options available.
  17. I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
  18. Well well well, May 10th has officially been declared as this year’s UBC Med D-Day! I thought to start our discussion thread so the nerves and doubts and excitement can officially be discussed as we inch closer to the beginning of the end (for the cycle!) and possibly the beginning of a new beginning. Here’s our official live countdown: https://www.arewethere.yt/OFFICIAL-D-DAY-2019/100157.htm
  19. Hey, I am looking for a place to stay from September 22nd - October 5th. I will be doing a 2-weeks elective at the VGH. Does anyone know any FB groups/resources that would be helpful? Thanks!
  20. I've been accepted to both schools. (I'm from BC) This is not a question about weather, city, traffic. I'd like to hear from students who have been to either school. UBC students, I'm not too thrilled to do PBL. UofT students, the class is very large. Do you get stressed easily as a result of waiting in lines? ANY info about the actual school environment and curriculum is highly appreciated.
  21. Hello I am wondering if anyone has written the UBC English Exemption Test before. Any information or details would be greatly appreciated!! thanks!
  22. Hey guys, I really need some thoughts here. I am a second year UBC premed currently work 5-10 hours at Sportchek on the weekend as a sales person. Will this be a ok EC? The job really brushed up my customer service skills and multi-tasking ( prioritizing customers when the store gets busy, etc) and will this experience look good on the application? Thank you in advance!
  23. Hi there! I know shadowing is a really common thing to do in the States, but I was wondering if it’s important for Canadians applying in Canada? I know it’s pretty much banned in BC, so I would hope that they don’t expect applicants to go against the rules to get shadowing. Any insight on this? Thanks!
  24. What's up people, I know this forum has people from all over Canada and just wanted some opinions on these cities. What are the best / worst things about each. Also some specifics: Cost of living, people/social life, proximity to activities/other cities, enviorment/nature, climate, highlights (parks, resorts, resturants), job oppourtunities, etc. Anything relavent to the living experience. Would love to be in close proximety to both parks and downtown. Love to get away from work and go have a bite to eat and then go hiking. Big fan of nature & nightlife too. Would love any input (even on cities not mentioned here!) would like to get a grasp on the different cities in Canada. If any has an advantage in medical oppourtunities that would be great too, ie: big hospitals, research, etc (from what I gather: vancouver is really expensive and rains a lot but has really nice views, lakes, mountains. Calgary/Edmonton is really cold and is more of a small city pretty far from everything but also has nice mountain ranges but nightlife is questionable, Toronto is just a big city great nightlife but with really small parks uncomparable to the others). Cheers, Richard
  25. Congratulations to all those who received interviews! I was wondering if any had good online resources for both questions for the classic MMI and the written essay component. I know some of the Facebook groups have test bank questions, but I figured we could consolidate these questions into one location.
