Hello!

 

I was wondering if there's a way to know my rank on the waitlist, and to know if the waitlist is valid for which campus.

 

Thank you!

Your rank should be on Minerva if you look up your application. I'm assuming this is for medp, so for the campus it may also be written there on minerva together with your rank. The two campuses is a new thing so your best bet is to contact the admissions office directly if it is not on Minerva.

Thanks! And earlier it said i was waitlisted, but now it says "Devision release date: May 16"..... did anyone else get that too?

I believe you are not allowed to re-apply for Med-P once you have applied once and you started an undergrad degree. Best thing is to email the faculty.

As for entrance scholarships (the one we do not need to apply for) how does that work and when do we find out if we get one?

I second this post, is there anyway we could find out if we got a scholarship?

Hey, you should find out by email in August if you will receive a  merit-based entrance scholarship, and there is nothing to do until then. As for the needs-based scholarships, apply to that as soon as you can through the Minerva portal.

Hi! For the Med-P program, I was wondering if we are allowed to take the Italian course “ITAL 205D1 Italian for Beginners” if we did one Italian course in CEGEP as a complementary course (it was a really beginner class and since I took it more than one year ago, I honestly don’t remember a lot from the course).

Language courses at McGill will have some sort of testing in the first week of classes. If the instructor/TAs find that your level of the language is incompatible with the level of the class, they'll contact you and suggest you go up or down a level.

Hey, does the TCP phase of McGill's curriculum purely take place within the hospitals? Do they prepare you well for clerkship? Do students generally find TCP to be one of McGill's strongpoints?

Hi!

Most of TCP will be either in outpatient clinic (peds and fam med for example) or in hospital for the rest. Most of the rotations are 2 weeks, except for IM which is about 6 weeks. You do get academic half days were students attend lectures. Those are usually held in hospital and sometimes on campus.

The goal of TCP is mainly to have you familiarize yourself with the hospital environment and get comfortable with completing a history and a physical as well as learning the basics about building a differential diagnosis. In most of your rotations you'll also learn how to write notes (progress, admission, consults) etc., which is high yield for med3/4. TCP is unique to McGill and allows for students to be better prepared to start clerkship; generally speaking, students tend to really like it and enjoy the experience.

Hope this helps!
