  1. Decided to post for future applicants - to inspire and give hope! Result: Accepted (off Waitlist) Timestamp: June 7, 2018 GPA: 3.87 (Last 2 years) MCAT: 514 (126 CARS) ECs: Diverse, things I enjoyed, a lot of employment, a decent amount of research but no publications at time of application Geography: IP Interview: Pulled off waitlist for interviews... the week before the first weekend of interviews. So flustered. Felt really good coming out of panel, MMI was not so great. Continued to feel exponentially worse as I had flashbacks of my interview until June.

  7. Also the two cards Scotia offers are under the same rewards program. They essentially offer you the Amex which has an aggressive 4x points on certain categories, but give you a backup Passport to use with merchants that don't accept Amex. So in this case, splitting expenses gets you more rewards than using either card alone.

  8. Not necessarily true regarding the blanket statement that consolidating "all your expenses on one card so that you can maximize the benefits and potentially earn points fast". I think the two Scotia cards accomplish different objectives and even if you do split your expenses based on type, you can accumulate slowly and you're bound to be able to use it if not now during residency - plus you get better recovery of your points through saving up and hit a higher tier for your travels.

  9. I just spoke with an advisor and they have informed me that the Gold Amex bonus offer isn't valid within this program (the 15k points) but the passport (25k) points one is valid!

    Scholarships?

    Hey guys, Does anyone know of any scholarships available to students entering their first year of med school at the UofA? I wasn't able to find anything when I searched through Beartracks, but I'm wondering if that's just an issue with timing and maybe some haven't opened up yet? I've also read a few threads where people received scholarships for med from the UofA already and was wondering how that works. Are they automatic or is there an application process?

  11. Hey guys, I’ve just obtained my LOC from RBC. It was a super smooth and easy process (everything was done by email!) The reason why I chose RBC was because I love travelling and they have the best travel credit card, the RBC Visa Platinum Avion Card. It was no annual fee and you get 15,000 bonus points when you sign up. With RBC you also get loads of other freebies. Check out the link here: http://www.rbcroyalbank.com/student-solution/medical-dental-professional/ My advisor was also super professional and quick to respond when ever I had any questions, so I would highly rec

  12. yeah it is kind of interesting - I mean they don't actually way anything about the 3/5 rule being applied in that 5th year (although I have had some people say they believed the office said it did (notice the very long string of 3rd party information there ha). In theory that means if you pick the right 2nd year courses you could end up with no senior courses in a special year at all. However like any special or usual stats for any of the schools I would go over the plan with them prior to doing anything - you don't want to waste your one and only special year etc

  13. Yup, as long as the program is designated as an undergraduate degree (which I think all in Canada are), you should put bachelor’s.

  14. I can echo this same sentiments as Rod, and I've gotten a lot of inquiries on this over the years myself. I always try to explain that just because you find someone who is willing to tell you that they will reimburse the fees on the Momentum Infinite Visa, it does not mean it will continue that way into the future. The bank explicitly tells us that we are not to reimburse the annual fee on this card, and although some advisors do it there will come a day when they will either be given a final warning to stop doing it, or that they are no longer working there and the next advisor will be u

  16. I will do my best to explain. The Momentum Infinite card is not part of plan. The fee on this card is not to be waived. To give you an idea I have the Momentum Infinite and I cannot get the fee waived on my card. My opinion is the combination of the Passport Infinite & Gold Amex is the best cards that come with any of the plans. The Amex gives you 4 times the points on gas, groceries, dining & entertainment. Most gas stations and major restaurants accept Amex. Passport Infinite comes with 2 times the points on groceries, dining & entertainment and transit purchases. No

  19. I got my recommendation letter for PT on May 15th and my official letter from FGS on the 25th, so don't worry if you don't hear anything within the week time frame they suggest. Paid my deposit within 3 minutes and then you wait 2 business days to register for courses and I was definitely breathing easier once I saw my schedule in front of me.

  21. Queen's uses sequential cutoffs. First GPA, then MCAT- so as long as you pass the GPA threshold and subsequent MCAT threshold you make it to the next stage.

  22. ha, yeah - there are often competing forces. I still think it is useful - I have seen some worst case stuff were someone realizes they aren't going to get the GPA they need and will have to a 5th year (note, that isn't a special year as those are after graduating) - they can still use the 3/5 rule to spread things in response even diluting some harder courses along the way.

Je connais des gens en Sc Biomed (2-3 personnes non directement) et Neurosciences (1 personne) qui ont été admis dans le contigent en cours de bac à l'UdeM

  29. Thank you for doing this. I am looking forward to being an OT student at Mac in September. Are you able to comment on whether it's better to live near campus or further away? Also, will it be necessary to get a car for placements? Mac doesn't have any anatomy & physiology requirement for admission. How much anatomy & physiology are students expected to know before entering the class? I am moving from another province and it's helpful to know as much information I can get. Thanks

  30. Exactly... I called OMSAS about this last year and the representative I spoke with wasn't too sure either. I am only speculating, but I do not think transferring universities would be considered an interruption. Perhaps if someone completed 2 years of uni, took 2 years off, and then returned to school... this is what would warrant a very brief explanation???

  31. I interpret it as taking a break from school during your undergraduate program, for whatever reasons (illness, needing to work etc) where you aren't taking any courses. Since you simply started your undergraduate program late but the program was uninterrupted once you started, I don't think you'd need to fill it in. Likewise, I don't think taking partial courses counts as a full disruption in the program. @caramilk Unsure in your case, but did you continue in a similar program where credits could be transferred or were you significantly behind as a result of transferring universities?

  32. As a primary care sports medicine physician in Canada, I'm not particularly debating any points above but this is my perspective. Sports Medicine can include everything within musculoskeletal and neurological medicine (but also so much more, read below). The diseases we see sometimes overlap with Ortho, Neuro, NeuroSx, and Physiatry, but sometimes do not. We have far more training than family physicians in the diagnosis of MSK/neurological issues. Even when physical therapy is the main solution - "sending them to PT" isn't good enough - we can also diagnose what's going wrong with trea

See other posts. Interview: Hard to say. At some stations during the MMI I could see the evaluators nodding in agreement or getting excited when I hit on major points, and other stations I rambled a bit and gave answers that I felt lacked structure or coherence. For the panel, at first my interviewers were pretty stone-faced, then as the interview went on they softened up quite a bit an

Result: Accepted (IP) GPA: 3.72 MCAT: 125/127/125/125 (502) EC: Nursing for the past 3 years in critical care and ER, volunteering 4h/week with a community mental health agency, student group President, scholarship to go to the US and learn about addictions treatment there, soccer, no research MMI: this was my very first interview anywhere and I was so nervous but I had a really good group and we made each other laugh and at the end I felt very comfortable with how I did. My panel interview went well for me and I think I had 2 stations that really did not go well for me.
