    • Comment tu as fait? Ca ne fonctionne toujours pas pour moi
    • très bonne question, est-ce qu'une personne plus familière aux listes d'attente pourrait y répondre?
    • I don't think adcoms really care about academic awards, unless they are very high level (ie. Rhodes scholars etc.) Most important is high GPA. Your work as an RN and achieving awards for QI and rather actually the stuff you did to do those QI projects will likely be seen favourably. The whole process is a crapshoot though, so wishing you good luck in this long endeavor. 
    • Whats the point of this pathway if you can do FM then do a FM+1 in emergency? 
    • Bonjour! Je souhaiterais savoir à combien s’élèvent les frais de scolarité pour médecine. Je ne trouve que des montants généraux sur le site de ULaval.    En bref, à combien estimez-vous les frais de scolarité, l’achat de manuels et l’achat d’uniformes au total? Je rencontre mon conseiller financier bientôt, alors j’aimerais pouvoir planifier à l’avance! Merci!
    • I hope you're all having a good long weekend. I was wondering about the value of non-academic awards on an application. I wasn't successful in winning any noteworthy awards in undergrad. On the other hand, I've been working as an RN for the last few years, and I've won several grants (in the $500-2500 range) for Quality Improvement projects on my unit, and an Ontario Volunteer Service Award for community volunteering. But will admissions committees actually care about these awards? Are they equivalent to an academic scholarship, or seen as less valuable because they weren't granted for academic performance (although some are for scholarly work)? Or would it depend on the nature of each award itself? Most of these were awarded by a provincial professional organization, and a few were from a nation-wide professional organization (although that group is actually much smaller than the province-wide professional organization). I'm going to list all these awards regardless, because I figure that they're still better than no awards at all, but I'm wondering how helpful they'll actually be at highlighting the professional development work I've done. I want to show that, since I finished undergrad, I've put a lot of extra work into improving and expanding my practice, rather than just doing what would regularly be expected of an RN in my position. My hope is that these awards can show that I'm not just talking a good game, but was recognized by my peers for my work. Any assistance is appreciated, thank you.
    • Bonjour, je suis 89e sur la liste d'attente pour les collégiens. Pensez vous que j'ai des chances d'être admis au courant de l'été?
    • Bonjour, je suis 89e sur la liste d'attente pour les collégiens, pensez-vous que j'ai des chances d'être admis au courant de l'été?
    • Salut salut   Est-ce que ceux qui ont payé le 300$ ça écrit aussi ( - 300$) dans votre centre étudiant et non 0.00$?  Aussi, ceux au campus Mauricie pouvez-vous vous inscrire aux cours? Moi je vois uniquement les cours sur campus MTL alors que j'ai été accepté en Mauricie.  Y a t-il des groupes FB pour les nouveaux admis? Je me sens perdu! Merci d'avance
    • Pour Sherbrooke tu dois accepter l’offre qui est faite. Ils recommandent de pas mettre le deuxième choix du tout si tu es pas prêt à l’accepter comme ça ils continuent à te considérer si quand ils arrivent à toi il y a pas de la place où tu veux 
    • Bonjour, j'ai été refusée en médecine à l'UdeS et je me demandais si faire soins infirmiers à l'UdeS est un bon choix dans le but de réappliquer en médecine plus tard ? Et savez-vous si le programme de soins infirmiers (formation initial) est mieux à UdeS ou Udem?
    • C’est risqué. J’ai entendu une histoire d’une fille qui a accepté à Ottawa, et vers fin août à été accepté dans celui qu’elle, elle a rejeté Ottawa en les prévenant puis aller à l’autre. Tu peux toujours accepter cette offre, si l’autre se libère tu peux annuler. Si tu refuses celle que tu as la et que finalement tu n’as pas l’autre tu perds tout . À nouveau les même démarche l’année prochaine. Après tu vois. 
    • Si lorsque vient le tour d'une personne sur la liste d'excellence, mais qu'à ce moment il n'y a de place que dans le campus de son deuxième choix sur le formulaire qu'elle a remplis, est ce que cette personne est obligée d'accepter l'offre à son deuxième choix ou pourrait rester sur la liste d'attente jusqu'à ce qu'une place dans le campus de son premier choix se libère éventuellement?
    • Might be wrong, but I don’t think it means 299 offers. They made the same number of offers as they have places. Some people between 287 and 299 didn’t get offered because they chose sherbrooke. It just means that the last person in the list to get offered Saguenay is 299. Basically everyone sub 299 will eventually get an offer though. 
    • In general 2 days (let alone 2 weeks) of working with someone is enough time to know if they will be a good fit for your program. Most people who do extra electives don't gain much benefit and often only shoot themselves in the foot by running into more people they may rub the wrong way or do something stupid. Express your interest during your elective by reaching out to PD, talking to residents, going to all rounds, etc.
