  10. ha so you tried quite a number of them - that probably means you learned a thing or two about what works with them and what won't - even if just from a single perspective I might if you are willing push you for more details. What should people look for? How many sessions do you think would be best and so on. and bonezMD is also right there are a number of free resources, career centres that do a lot of this sort of work (from experience I will say doing those from the other side is also a very rewarding thing personally). One of the reasons for the forum is to find and organize such thi

  11. I think that the admissions committee might like it if you used point form since they have to read so many (lol). But you should write it in paragraphs because I think you want to use that section to show the committee that you are an interesting person with hobbies and don't just live in the library. And it doesn't really matter what you put there in terms of what you like, imo. It's more about that you a passionate about something (eg. I like swimming and water stuff and can hold my breathe underwater for 10 minutes and do a triple front flip dive). You send in the admissions

  15. I do not think Canadian family physicians are overpaid. The us is definetely underpaid. Yes, when converted in CAD us family docs make more. But you also have to take account for that you live in the US and spend USD. In desirable locations (cali, nyc), 250 k is nothing once you take out taxes and cost of living. So your spending power does not necessarily increase significantly. Second, there is way more medical legal problem and the stressors of being sued daily is a big negative IMO. Thirdly, in the US family med tend to be a dumping ground for the uninsured and medically complex. So patien

  17. I think a master's degree makes a huge difference. Didn't even get an interview to Western first round of apps (I applied during 4th year). My second round of Canadian apps, I got accepted to Western. My 3rd and 4th year marks were much better than my 1st/2nd, and I had a 2 year thesis-based master's degree. However that being said, if your marks are too low, it won't matter what postgraduate studies you pursue, and it also helped that Western takes your best 2 years. In regards to financing the two options - I got accepted to an American school after 4th year, but I couldn't afford it at
