    Overview of the Various Sites

    Hello everyone, I'll keep it nice and short. I was wondering if anyone here had any good insight on the different medical school sites (i.e NMP, IMP, SMP, VFMP) and what each of their strengths/weaknesses are. I realize there's an open house coming up, but I'd be very interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this! From what I understand so far: IMP: Nice city, climate, small class size SMP: Great skiing, small class sizes NMP: Excellent for family medicine, small class sizes VFMP: Where you want to go to specialize

  3. J'ai fait l'exam il y a un an et la partie SN n'est pas évaluée pour les universités québécoises seulement la partie dextérité manuelle + partie d'habiletés perceptuelles. Tu obtiens des notes pour la section SN lorsqu'ils envoient un relevé, car c'est le template de tous les relevés de notes. Toutefois, les unis ne regardent pas la partie SN. Perso, j'ai essayé de faire la partie SN au "talent/intuition" parce que je pensais que ça serait important pour l'admission, mais la plupart des élèves vont juste tout mettre A partout et prendre un nap pcq c'est useless si tu n'appliques pas hors QC.

    Not applying to CaRMS

    Is the fear if you apply for family med and don't get it you then be in a bad spot (red flagged as you put it) for the following year? I would also suggest talking to your advisors about your situation as it seem likely if you can apply broadly you will get family med this year anyway, and losing the year may raise flags regardless. Basically you are in a possible even probable win versus cannot make your situation worse scenario with applying this year. If that is true, and I think it is likely you are, then on a practical level it would be illogical not to apply. You cannot ever be 100% in C

  5. If they cared to spend time to teach you something or socialize with you, those are good. Also good if your preceptor trashes another med student to you behind their back, which means they at least like you more than that other one.

  6. Interesting thought...Is this assumption based on anything? At my school exam averages have been about the same, and many people are experiencing the exact opposite of grade inflation with the switch to online. A lot of professors are simply adding a heavier work load, or administering long take home exams that are harshly graded. Or, timed exams are so packed that people don't have time to finish them - they definitely don't have time to cheat... Professors who have never taught online are often woefully disorganized and students have a hard time keeping track of what is what. People are tryi

  8. Noroh has been very clear what she is asking and for what purpose, and people are voluntarily choosing to fund her over that amount. She is only in MS2, so my best guess is, if she gets extra, she will use it to pay her entire outstanding balance versus just the minimum deposit, and then will probably use it to help her with the next 2 years of tuition thereafter. Which is also very reasonable and in line with the intent of the people who are donating. I expect she is talking about her high tuition and her ineligibility to access Canadian financial resources because otherwise people out

  9. mohammad, you are barking up the wrong tree. You really want to rain on her. She has future medical education expenses and her request is reasonable and certainly not unethical, notwithstanding exceeding her original request for funding. Your views and statements are without merit.

  10. So then why it is a problem if people want to help her pay those costs with their own personal money? If you don't agree, then when you have extra money, you can pick your own cause to donate to, that you think is valuable and will improve society.

  11. Mean score is 250, SD is 30, passing score is 226. Assuming normal distribution, pass rate should be around ~80%. Also echoing others in saying the exam was horribly designed. Ambiguous questions, vague prompts, etc. Even the MCCQE website has errors. For example, they say you have 1 minute 14 seconds per MCQ, which is incorrect (Should be 240 minutes / 210 questions = 1.14 min = 1 minute 8 seconds). Sounds trivial but you will be 19 minutes over if you follow their info. They made the same mistake again talking about CDM timing.
