  5. can't think of an opinion i disagree with more tbh. 1. Schools didn't exclude winter2020 grades for people that failed, they did it because it was an outlier. Many people thrived off of cancellations and empathetic professors and had their "first 4.0 semester". This high achievement is attributable to the pandemic and thus, is not a fair data point for peoples' performance. Thus, the most fair approach is to ignore it. 2. Please do not assume you have the competence or experience to occupy high-ranking academic positions in faculties of medicine that have been around longer than many

  6. Bonjour à tous! J'espère que ce post ne se fait pas enfouir par tous les autres posts lol je suis stressée et j'ai besoin d'info Je viens d'être admis au BSBP (yay!) pour la session d'automne 2020 à l'udem. Mon ultimate goal c'est med et je veux compléter mon bac avant d'appliquer en med, juste pour genre avoir plus d'expérience et un plan B. Je veux vraiment avoir un GPA d'au moins 4.0, mais je ne sais pas si c'est faisable. Est-ce que c'est possible? Est-ce que je suis trop ambitieuse et ça risque de jamais marcher? J'ai une CRC de 29.6 environ maintenant, ce qui est relativement

  7. Is it weird if I am exactly the same person here that I was during my MMIs? Is it normal that consider that people should always be themselves no matter where they are? Hummm. I don't even see the point of being anonymous here or anywhere else, any admission comittee could easily deduce who I am & that wouln't matter... but I'm getting off subject (maybe not though). The only thing I have to say is, thanks everyone for the entertainment, it was worth the read! There seems to be good arguments on both sides, but to me the anger of this person makes it impossible to d

    Hey! It seems like you've given this choice a lot of thought, and many people have provided very useful viewpoints. I just wanted to echo the concerns of only applying to one school, ESPECIALLY Queen's, as well as give my personal experience. The first big issue with Queen's is its very small class size. They have only 100 spots (the smallest in Ontario except for NOSM), but 10 are for QuARMS and a few others are reserved for specific populations (I'm not too knowledgeable about this but I believe they have a few spots for those in the military, etc.) + people who defer, so really you're looki

  12. For those of you who are wondering what student life in pharmacy is like please feel free to go through our student association (APSA)'s instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/apsalutely/ . A lot of our yearly events have been documented in the stories highlights and posts, up until COVID stopped us. I know things probably wont be quite the same in the fall semester, but APSA will do everything we can to make sure you guys have a good time! Welcome to the pharmily!!

  13. Hello all, Because I had nothing better to do, I decided to email them this past weekend. Fortunately, they responded quickly and kindly! They said: - Class is full and no movement for some time - IF there will be any movement this late, it would happen 1st week of August —> then they will send out updates then - They will keep a small waitlist until orientation week after that Hope this gives some peace of mind!

    Congratulations on making the career switch. I did it too and medicine is better than my previous career. I am also "older" than the average med student, though not that much (27). I do not agree with you about how med school and residency won't force you to put life on hold, however. By "on hold," I don't mean life has to stop. You can for sure get married, have a kid, buy a house, etc. if your circumstances allow. So instead, by "on hold," I mean not have as much time for those things as you would want. I am speaking as a med student in a long-term stable relationship and who has older

    The main concern I am going to respond to, that others have raised, is age. It really doesn't matter what age you are when you start school, except that as you get older you can't stay up as late and you need to plan your time better because you can't burn the candle at both ends. I think that whole "do you really want to put your life on hold until you're 40" argument is a bit ludicrous. I am in the process of switching careers from one profession to medicine (I start med school in a few weeks). I'm 34, and if all goes to plan I will be a physician by the time I'm 40. What is the average age

  17. I don't even know the type of cognitive dissonance you're going to experience with your uoft application and the massive imposter syndrome you'd feel if you get in. If you have philosophical differences with the application just don't apply and go into law/dentistry/business/whatever you agree with

  18. Took me 7 years to finish mine (gap year and two additional years). They didn't bother asking me about it during either Queens/Western interviews. I am currently in the process of wrapping up medical school. Good luck!

  19. I have a few friends who also got in yesterday. If I had to guess based on the patterns seen from their initial acceptances, I have a feeling the next round will probably come out in 3-4 days! I'm just guessing though, and the GH office literally won't disclose any info about this lol.

  20. Si tu es avec desjardins ça me surprendrait qu'ils aient un bon deal à te proposer, selon ce que j'ai entendu. Moi, je suis avec desjardins et je suis direct aller voir Scotia, car on m'a dit que c'était les meilleurs pour ce genre de deals. J'y ai pensé et je me suis dit qu'en ayant 2 institutions financières et en devant gérer les virements entre comptes et tout, peut-être que la complexité m'évitera de dépenser en folle haha! On m'a aussi conseillé RBC mais j'ai préféré Scotia à cause des bons commentaires de mon entourage. Je ne suis pas allée voir ailleurs après mon rendez-vous, car j'éta

  21. This is such a good question. I’m gonna answer this the best I can, as honestly as I can. The community: This faculty is such a tight community. From orientation, you meet people that become your best friends in a matter of days. Seeing everyone everyday is such a joy, even on the bad days. The social events are unparalleled. The student association (APSA) takes this very, very seriously and does everything possible to ensure we’re all having a great time, taking our minds off of school, and keeping that mental health strong. I wish I could better describe to you how great the events are,
