  1. Past hour
  2. Yes! Between waiting for interview updates and waiting for our covid vaccine call, it’s been a fun week, lol. Hoping for good news for us all tomorrow!
  3. Anyone know if Mac gives feedback to rejections for FM? My application screamed FM (at least from my electives) and I'm in province so I'm kinda bummed about it but what can you do.
  4. I guess that's a wrap for today. Tomorrow will be another day of constant refreshing.
  5. Today
  6. Wow sorry to hear that! Do you mind posting your stats? If someone knows how to tag the guy above please do, I don't know how lol
  7. Has anyone actually gotten rejected from McMaster psych, or just waitlist?
  8. It was definitely high I'd say. I was competitive based on last years stats and no interview sadly.
  9. I really don’t think they look for improvements per se, but it’s more like they select the strongest candidates and you improve to become one of the strongest candidates (so they ultimately only look at your end point instead of your whole journey).

  12. Does anyone know if we are given the questions in the PT Mac Kira Talent ahead of time? I've heard its 1-1.5minute answers so it'd be nice to have an idea of what they will ask. Also, if anyone has taken it, have the questions been standard or completely random? Ex: "why are you interested in our program? vs. "tell us what you would put in a time capsule opened in 200 years from now, that represents what the human race did well this year and what they could have improved on"... ? thanks!

  14. Hey, It is super common for people to re apply, and it does not look bad at all. I was told that they look for improvements in your application so re-doing courses and getting more work experience only strengthens your chances for next time.
  15. Merci beaucoup! Par curiosité, qu'est-ce qui t'a poussé à t'inscrire dans ce doctorat au lieu des autres un peu similaires plus connus (med dent justement, méd régulier, pharmacie, etc)?
  16. Thanks for letting me know! I thought it would be around this Monday or Tuesday, but it is a bit strange that we still haven't heard anything back from the admissions.
  17. That's indeed sad, but if we were to play devil's advocate, on the other hand, I'm sure that directors want to have committed and motivated residents in their program in order to maximise their training potential. For example, I think program directors would by far prefer training 5 residents who really want to be there, are really interested in what they are doing and are motivated to learn more, versus training those 5 same residents plus 3 other residents who never considered FM, hate being there, and are looking at every opportunity possible to jump ship (thus adding extra "dead weight" ac

  19. Thanks so much for the explanation! Yes, I guess online interviews helps a lot when you apply broadly! It would be great if they kept online interviews options in the future!
  20. Not yet actually. I'm assuming it will be tomorrow. A little strange as I assumed they would email back by now.
  21. Residency spots are a provincial funding allocation, so it's up to each provinces ministry of health/political. So hard to say if more spots are coming any time soon. Different for everyone, its a choice you make on your own. Maybe you have family in a specific location that limits where you can go. Larger specialties like family you probably don't have to apply everywhere. Others may apply broadly then only interview or rank a subset. May people applying to competitive specialties generally will apply across the board if that specialty is more important than location. In previous year
  22. Okay sounds good. Make a link please, I don't know how. Let's make one and I'll send you an email.
