  2. Clusters of 2015 matriculants were called grapes because of our purple bags. You guys get to be busy bees! I think it’s nice. I’d have been happy with it. The colour is a dandelion yellow. Nice and rich. Dandelions thrive on any surface in any conditions no matter what you do to them. Maybe you guys can be like them.

  3. I've been so happy today. For the past five years of trying over and over to get into UBC with below average interviews, I kept telling myself If I ever get in, and the backpack color is yellow that year (My favorite color. Also the color of my car, and many clothing I own), then it is destiny. I was meant to get that year. This feels really symbolic. Yellow is the color of happiness.

  4. I was in your shoes for the past three cycles, seeing a lot of my friends get accepted and talk about how excited they are about this year's bag color, among many other exciting things about starting medical school. I felt disappointed and feel left out when I'd received my rejections, two of which post interview. To some, the bag shows how far people have come and overcome the rigors of the admissions process and view the bag as an achievement, along with things like the white coat ceremony / stethoscope ceremony, as a small welcome to the medical community. Others don't consider it much of a

  5. You know everybody is just joking right? Im sure 99% of people are truly grateful - it's just stuff to talk about while we wait for med to start

  6. If the yellow is pretty deep/rich I could be on board, though it was second from the bottom on my list (above orange). Guess we'll have to see in person! Either way, #Team Bumblebee let's go. I'm just happy to have finally gotten into med lmao I'll take any free backpack they'll give me.

  8. Maybe don't go on a thread about the bag colour if you're that bitter. This thread is specifically to get excited or talk shit about the bag colour. Do you think med students should never be allowed to complain about anything or be negative ever because there are people who didn't get in? Jeez

  9. The only way to recover from this travesty is to ensure the next year gets the most hideous shade of NEON PINK

  10. Let's look on the bright side. The 2023/2022s were obviously very concerned about our safety and ensuring high visibility, and definitely not using this as a funny opportunity to make traffic light photos or take advantage of the opportunity to saddle the next year with the most outlandish colour they could. I'm sure the 2024/2023s will be similarly considerate next year.

  14. Hey @LittleFrog - I understand that it can be frustrating seeing posts and threads from people who have been fortunate enough to get to where you're hoping and trying really really hard to get to. Medical school admissions is a tough process for most people, and we know that we're in a privileged position. With that being said, I don't think it's fair to insinuate that incoming (and current) medical students have no right to [lightheartedly] complain. There is a reason that there are different sections on premed101, targeted towards different demographics, and it would similarly be completely

  19. Hey guys, I'm a Ontario Medical School graduate and a current first year resident in an Ontario program. Recently, there has been a lot of talk about inequity surrounding medical school admissions - from the companies charge extremely high prices to help students getting into medical school to previously free resources (e.g. Khan Academy) becoming less accessible through a paywall. Therefore, I decided to create a video series with a small team of mine in order to help guide premed students with important information, especially if they are planning on applying to Ontario Medica

  21. Hey guys! I also got my acceptance letter yesterday! Here are some of my stats: IP applicant from U of A pGPA: 3.54 cGPA: 3.60 ECs included sports teams and being an executive member on various clubs on campus. I was also a research assistant at the U of A last summer. I am very excited to meet everyone in the program! For those of you still waiting, don’t stress! From my understanding, the application committee is a bit behind this year (compared to previous years).

  26. Alright so in the picture on instagram, the guy’s shirt has yellow stripes. Wouldn’t it be way too obvious if the backpack was also going to be yellow? Am I over thinking this? Probably. I also just reallllly don’t want yellow. But the other colours quoted in their story (for anyone who missed it) were grey, light blue, magenta, purple, and yellow.

  27. Just got my acceptance this afternoon! Stoked to meet y'all (virtually) in the fall OOP applicant, mountain lassie from BC. Finished undergrad before applying. Have worked in a handful of pharmacies for roughly five years. 2yr oGPA: 3.77 prereq GPA: 2.87. Shit the bed at the start of UG & did pretty trash in MICR, BIOL and PHGY. Took a handful of 300/400 level BCHM and PHAR courses to compensate. For those of you still waiting, I'm sorry if you feel anxious or stressed. I know it's easier said than done, but please don't lose hope. Best of luck to everyone here. Side no

  28. $20/hr does not sound unreasonable, however, for more than a decade I have been helping applicants on this Forum, as have others, pro bono - and I would not think of charging. I have chased those who have sought to charge our members away to the maximum of my ability as they were taking advantage of the vulnerable. It is unnecessary to pay for good advice.

  29. I am so thrilled to be getting a backpack. I do wish the colour was a bit more neutral so I would get more use out of it... oh well. Positives... We'll be able to spot our classmates from miles away and it won't get confused with any of the other bags in my closet.

  30. Still figuring out exactly how we're going to get them to you guys but it'll definitely be during/very close to orientation week so that you guys can show them off along with everybody else

  32. From the CMA_docs story, you can see the revealed side view - doesn't look half bad! I was a bit disappointed at first, but I think it'll look pretty awesome.

  34. Honestly it's better than it looked in the original pic for golden yellow, but I wish the straps were more grey than black (more like the dark grey on the green bags)

  41. I also only offer help for free through these forums and think that that's a nice way to give back especially to people from lower SES background, but I also just caution you to double check with your school and read through their policies on charging for these types of activities. My school recently sent an email to the medical students and graduates to say that they consider joining medical school admission consulting firms a breach of professionalism that would come with serious consequences including litigation.

  47. So I got my acceptance just now guys!! I’m so hype because I was the one who created this thread and I started wondering how sad it would to see you all get in and I end up not getting in myself!! I can get super in my head sometimes lol. -I did most of my pre-reqs at macewan and finished it up at u of a. I didn’t finish a degree before application. cgpa: 3.7 pre-req gpa: 3.8 -I’ve been working as a psych aide for 6 years at a local facility and have a nursing Diploma from out of country. This is such a dream and I can’t wait to ‘meet’ you all!! Lemme know if you

  49. Introduction Bonjour à tous, comme vous le savez il y a beaucoup d'incertitude et de spéculation quant aux CRU qui ont été calculées pour 2020 et le changement par rapport à 2019 et les années précédentes. Également, le programme de biochimie a toujours été considéré comme étant un des programmes donnant les meilleures CRU pour UdeM et un tremplin intéressant pour ceux désirant changer de programme. J'ai donc tâché de recueillir quelques conversion de GPA vers CRU au travers du forum et avec des personnes que je connais pour 2019 et 2020 afin d'avoir une meilleure idée de la force du prog
