  1. La faculté vient de publier ce message sur sa page facebook Si vous êtes candidat au DMV et que votre dossier est toujours classé comme étant "à l'étude", ce statut sera changé très prochainement. Dans Synchro, il passera soit à "Admission", "Refus" ou "Liste d'attente". On comprend que c'est difficile d'attendre, mais l'échéancier de la mi-mai devrait être respecté. Bonne chance à tous!

  4. I had a 513 (125 CARS) and was accepted. My GPA was similar to some of those rejected. It seems like there is a lot of subjectivity when it comes to who is accepted.

    En fait, il est vrai que la cote minimale a diminué pour le contingentement universitaire, par contre les calculs des cotes sont en fonction de l'indice de force des programmes, et donc un 32,8 pour un universitaire dans un programme X peut être très difficile à atteindre, voir impossible si par exemple un 4.33 vaut même pas 31 :p ! Donc oui c'est plus faible, mais ce n'est pas nécessairement faible dans le sens où ULaval calcule différemment!

  7. Hi all! I am a standard OOP applicant and was ACCEPTED into U of S Saskatoon campus this morning. I will be taking the offer. Honestly thought the MMI could not have gone any worse upon leaving, but maybe I just have too high expectations for myself. Regardless, I made sure to show my own personality and answer as confidently as I could. Looking forward to meeting all my new classmates in August!

  13. Sorry to hear you need to keep waiting @broclivity44, but it seems like there has been a ton of OOP waitlist movement in the past & they seem pretty good about getting waitlist offers out quickly. I hope it works out, and thanks for letting us know emails are coming!!

  14. I wanted to add that a good number of people get out right rejected. They just dont usually post about it. Aside from that I also know that they interview about 500. My best guess would be 100 acceptances, 250-300 waitlists, 100-150 rejects. From this you can see why so many people post waitlisted, because up to 60% of interviewees get waitlisted. Keep in mind tho that alot of those waitlisted get accepted elsewhere and remove themselves (and those must be pretty high up the list because they must have done really well at other schools). Best estimate is around 100 get in off the waitlist, 50-

    Grosso modo c'est pas mal tous pareil, mais certaines banques font définitivement plus affaire avec les professionnels de la santé que d'autres. Par exemple, j'ai trouvé les conseillers RBC plus informés sur le cheminement/besoins des dentistes et médecins que ceux de Desjardins. L'important n'est pas vraiment la banque selon moi, mais plutôt les gens avec qui tu fais affaire. La plupart des gens que je connais sont avec RBC et il y a quelques mois, ils ont bonifié leur offre aux étudiants en MD/DMD. Par exemple, à la place d'avoir la VISA platine voyages pendant un an, tu l'as pendant 4 ans o

    Prestige seriously doesn't matter one bit. It will be cold comfort if you go to a medical school you don't enjoy in other ways. Even the idea of shadowing "top tier specialists" doesn't make a difference to a medical student. Medical school is actually an undergraduate degree, you are learning the basics and the basics can be taught the same no matter where you are. Important factors to focus on: 1. Do medical school where you want to match for residency 2. Do medical school in a place you want to live, this is 3-4 years of your life, make sure you are happy with them! 3

  21. As another older student / resident I agree with all of the above. I entered medical school in my mid-thirties, and am now part-way through a royal college residency. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have done it. I wouldn't say I regret it, but the psyco-emotional cost is high. You mentioned wanting more critical thinking aspect of your work... in my experience, there is a lot less of that in medicine that most outside of it think, and a lot less than doctors themselves think they do. The vast majority of the learning process is more about memorization and pattern recognition than critical

    1. Practice in person with an interview coach who is an expert in medical school interviews. Practicing online is not very useful because a huge component of the MMI is how you present yourself. 2. Develop stories for the various canmed competencies ( ex. a time when you were a collaborator, advocate, a time when you resolved a conflict). 3. Join a public speaking / debate club. 4. Take every opportunity to present things whether it is in school or at work 5. Try to get out of your comfort zone as much as possible.

  28. Sweet! I was quite excited when I got my offer and then felt a bit crushed when I saw that recall email. Lots of rejections over the years from medical schools etc, so feels quite good to get an acceptance. Hopefully see you in Toronto in September!

  29. Thank you very much for the detailed writeup!! Really appreciate you taking the time and effort. I am in Quebec and planning on applying as an IP. I applied to Nursing as a 2nd UG at ULaval. Waitlisted for now. Crossing fingers for tomorrow, when Med applicants get their answers. This might make the waitlist move. I was informed by ULaval that an internal tranfer of 45 credits is accepted to to go into ULaval Med School, granted that the grades are meeting the requirements. I see that you are doing a fast track Nursing program. All the best in your endeavours!!

    Just checked my old emails - the summer workshops were held twice a week starting in early June. (Not sure if it's the same now but that's at least a rough estimate for your timeline.) There's also a Financial Night in September where different banks have representatives available to answer your questions, provide brochures, etc. Those reps are usually very familiar with professional LOCs and med students. But overall, like @ JohnGrisham said, there isn't much variability for rates between banks. It's mostly what perks you'd like to have.

    No, they by default wouldnt give you specific advisor names. That would be a conflict of interest in a sense, if they as an official entity said "Oh, John at BMO is good if you are in Brampton". Every bank(or almost every) will have contact info on their official sources. Just get a advisor that is specifically for professional students, and/or medical students. The process is really not difficult assuming you are getting the right product. If you are getting prime - 0.25, then you can be fairly confident the rest of the product will be right.

  37. Sounds like a good plan! I didn't schedule any work tomorrow, so the morning is going to be the longest part of this for me I think. The last week or so I got back into playing video games for the first time in a few years. It's been a good distraction since I've had a lot of downtime lately! Gymnastics with my son tonight though. Good luck Koopatroopa! I've seen you post a lot on the forums lately, I'll be rooting for you tomorrow!

  39. Fast track nursing are generally 2 year programs and aren’t as intensive imo as some people think they are. You can work in a broad range of areas as an RN and the pay is decent with lots of RNs making 100k+ with overtime. I wouldn’t consider it a lifestyle job though as a lot of jobs involve shift work. On top of that, there is plenty of opportunity to advance your career after you get some experience and you can take additional schooling and do NP, Perfusion, management/admin etc. In terms of independence, there is a lot of autonomy with nursing in some jobs and geographies but mos

  40. If you have the grades, then go to a 3 year medical school and become a family doctor. FM residency isn't too bad, and honestly med school isn't intense outside of the clerkship years. You want good pay and autonomy... FM is it. Honestly that's what I'd do now if I wasn't so silly and got married to the idea of a specialty...

  41. If you come across a relevant question where bringing up what you went through would be a meaningful part of honest and thorough answer, I'd say you shouldn't feel the need to shy away from telling this part of your personal journey towards a career in medicine. Especially considering the growth you've shown in response to it, I would be very surprised (and deeply disappointed) if it were in any way held against you. By the same token, however, don't feel that not talking about this part of your life is somehow deceptive towards interviewers. I'd go even further and suggest that you not g

  42. Reminder that if you don't get accepted on your first time applying—it's completely normal. I was seeing a PT in my community for treatment last year who had just graduated from UofT a year or so earlier. She said that she and her friend were in the minority as students that had been accepted straight out of undergrad. So she emphasized to me that if I got rejected, I should try again. I was rejected last year and took it very hard. But I took the year to improve myself a lot, I improved my application and gained a ton more experience. This year I'm not thinking about getting accepted or

  44. This post totally changes the question. I recommend go to Mac. The main advantage of Toronto is if you want to be in Toronto. Mac has a more pleasant/easier pre-clerkship, more time to explore in your first year, and is overall much more "chill". Even with summers off, you will have a more relaxing experience at Mac vs U of T. I would really choose U of T for med school only if I wanted to be in Toronto, or if I was gunning for something competitive which might make the summers off a bit more useful. The only time Mac is more stressful is in clerkship.

    Pros of UWO: Small class size is kinda great Get to do molar endo cases (some of which we shouldn't be doing at an undergrad level LOL)... if you're into that sort of thing. Renovated sim clinic is actually kinda nice - the endo scopes and digital radiographs are quite useful Going digital (finally) starting this June I would assume less competition/harsh environment (idk some people kinda lost their minds come 3rd year but oh well) Rumor is we're getting quite a few more clinical instructors; coverage is mediocre/poor from time to time, but we're still gett

It is because of your stories, that today, I also have the pleasure of posting here and sharing my own journey. When I was younger and about to head to university, I had a tough time choosing between pursuing a business degree or a science degree. At that time, I knew my interests were in biology and psychology, but seeing my parents labouring hard on the farm, I felt pressured to help support the family and make money fast. S
