I was just looking back at my application and noticed I somehow forgot to update the 'Experience' tab on the carms 'My Information' tab. No idea how this happened, and I'm obviously upset about it. I didn't have a ton to add to the tab beyond what was already there from my original carms app, but I did have a publication and some significant research activity to add.

 

All of my research and publications are in my formal CV which was sent to all of the schools I applied to, but I'm looking for some advice as to whether I should update the activities and resubmit, drawing attention to the fact that my application was initially incomplete and giving it a late time stamp, or leave things the way they are and hope they see those important items in my CV and don't penalize me for not having them all in the carms CV sections.

I am new to CaRMS....but personally I don't think it matters, if you are sure that each school you applied to will certainly look at your CV (if it is a mandatory document).

If they notice discrepancy between your carms platform and C.V, I am sure that they understand that sometimes the platform crashes.

CaRMS is not responsible for any information or documents uploaded by the applicants, please correct me if I am wrong! But accidents happen frequently. I know people who submit the wrong personal letters to wrong programs. I think that your omission of experience tab is not a major issue at all (IMO)

Best of luck :)

Congrats to everyone for they interviews. Wondering if people would mind sharing how many interviews you received in addition to your home school?  Are the interviews within your home province or region? Did you do electives where you received interviews?
