  1. Aside from the early 2018 release date, the acceptance letters have typically come out during the Med1/2 March Break (this year it's the week of March 16-20). Talking to friends of mine currently in Med 1 & 2, they all seem to have the impression that that will be the case again this year. I know it's easier said than done, but I won't be overly stressing or obsessively refreshing my email until March 16. Would definitely urge everyone else to try and have the same mindset to save yourself from the unneeded stress.

  2. I can now confirm this, unfortunately I will expect late March, but as @Chels1267 said that won’t stop me from checking my email every hour of the day! After a conversation with some friends that are in the program at dal, there’s also the chance that they put that in the automated email to shun people from asking. Imagine if they said nothing, they would likely get an influx of emails asking for the dates. If they said early March, people would email them panicking if they didn’t get their letter by March 5th. This couuuld be a way to reduce the amount of emails they get from ap

    Overall, I really enjoyed the experience - shout out to the UBC Med students and staff who helped create an organized and welcoming environment. It was fun getting a chance to chat and meet some of the diverse interviewees. Also, anecdotally, speaking to a few people that have interviewed elsewhere, they said that UBC was one of the more pleasant MMI circuits they've done. (Also, how gorgeous is that life sciences center? Yeesh!) I spent some time meditating/exercising that morning, and walked into it feeling oddly calm, which was nice (I'm hoping I was able to relay at least a little of th

  4. Definitely agree with this! I'm in Med 1 and I would say that acceptances will likely come out near the end of our March Break. I just wanted to say good luck to everyone as the date approaches! It's tempting to spend your time over analyzing your interview and what your score might look like but as squeekz said it can bring on a lot of extra stress. I remember the anxiety I was feeling like it was yesterday and what helped the most was just reminding myself there is nothing I can do to make the letters come faster. You have made it this far and that email will come soon enough :D

  6. Not only will your friend's application be ineligible, but they will be blacklisted from ever applying to any medical program in the country in the future.. This is applicant neuroticism at it's best. The survey is voluntary and means nothing. It will make no difference. If someone thinks not completing a voluntary survey will jeopardize their application, then I question their suitability for a career in medicine lol

  7. I told my self not to become neurotic about refreshing my inbox in March, but I think I have already lost that battle.

  9. And rewind the clock to a decade ago in the US where it wasn't that bad and another decade prior when it was even better. Your view is very shortsighted and delusional. Looking at how things are at the present time and ignoring all the other variables (legislation for independent practice, increased midlevel practice rights, increased training of midlevels, etc.) is honestly either a lack in common sense or typical Ivory tower screaming. And our "highly regulated system" also gave NPs independent rights on top of letting RNs prescribe birth control and pharmacists prescribe antibiotics.

  10. You are asking the wrong question(s). Time & stress management, strong work ethic, being humble and kind, living a healthy lifestyle, having outside interests and involvement in your community will all advance your best interests in the long term. High school grades or courses are irrelevant to your career future! Participate in class, ask questions of the teacher, engage your mind.

  11. Hey! They actually make the process pretty relaxing. Plan to get there 30 min before, and then they'll be signs that tell you where to go - when you get there, you'll have to sign in and turn your phone in (you can do this right before your interview, but I turned mine in immediately so I didn't have to worry about it). They also have racks where you can put your coat. They'll be multiple tables where theres usually 2 MS4 students (one anglophone stream one, and another one from the francophone stream), and you can talk with them and the other students at the table. They'll tell you that 10-15

  12. Hi there. Unfortunately I have not studied at University of Ottawa, I just had received the above info from their admissions office. I assume it should be as difficult as most Canadian universities to maintain a high GPA at UOttawa. I just want to remind you of a fact that you probably already know, and that is how few seats there are for International students (those without a Canadian permanent residency or passport) at Canadian medical schools. Having said that, wish you luck in the process!

  13. Moi honnêtement je pense que c’est une bonne chose. Ça permet de plus focuser sur la personnalité et sur la capacité d’adaptation et de raisonnement et pas seulement sur la capacité de la personne à avoir de bonnes notes. Je trouve que c’était absurde de devoir avoir une cote de presque 35 pour seulement être CONVOQUÉ à l’entrevue! J’ai toujours pensé que ce serait mieux de faire une combinaison de notes et de test sur les capacités situationnelles (comme casper) de la personne afin de faire la convocation à l’entrevue parce que de juste appeler aux mems ceux qui ont 35 et + je pense que c’est

  15. I feel you! So when my friend emailed them a question regarding admissions, the automatic reply: Thank you for your email and interest in Dalhousie Medical School. If you applied to Dalhousie Medical School within the 2019/2020 application cycle please note that decision letters for those interviewed applicants will be sent out late March 2020."
