  5. I've always wondered why there is such uncertainty/mystery on the dates in which invites/regrets are sent out. It is known months in advance when the interview dates will be, but the invites/regrets always seem to be a mystery for applicants.

  7. No offence at all, but OP should not discount medicine if that's what she wants to do. Allied health is definitely a reasonable career, with generally less intensive training, but I don't think actually practising as a nurse vs family medicine is any easier. Many nurses do shift work which includes nights, whereas after residency, most family docs can easily have practices limited to home call, if any. Having a 9-5 practice as a GP with a higher income than full time shift work I think would be a much better home-life balance. The hurdle is getting through the 5-6 years of medical school

    Yes. Not a single person has ever been accepted to a school after misspeaking in an interview. You're lucky you didn't mispronounce 3 words, your computer catches fire and self-destructs.

  12. Hello all! I'm wondering if med school is doable as a single mom of kids in elementary school... Anyone did it or know anybody who did it? I do not have a lot of support, grandparents and extended family are still working or live 3-6 hours away. With the clerkship and residency schedules, I am trying to see how to make it possible. I would go for a family medicine residency. Obviously my children are my top priority. I would love your insight on this! Thank you so much!

  13. Hey all, I'm from Ontario and applying to PT to Dal, and I was wondering if anyone knew what the chances are for an OOP student? I have a 4.02/4.3, and it says the average person admitted has 3.81/4.3. But I would think those applying from OOP would be more competitive? Does anyone know how many seats can be offered to OOP? I've heard 5 but I've also heard 19 LOL. Thanks!

  14. Ah yeah thanks for clarifying. I don't think we can know unless someone asks McGill admissions directly. Things can change during the admissions process though, and I can't see any reason why the AFMC document should be more accurate than McGill's own updated information. I also don't see what benefit there would be for McGill to publicly misrepresent the number of interviews they're conducting. I would disregard the AFMC numbers and operate on the basis that there are just 33 other people interviewing for the OOP spots. Good luck!

  19. You've got his syntax down, but it's time you learn Yoda's best lesson: Do or do not. There is no try. You *really* should try to have all 8 filled out IMO. Even if one is weak. They do not simply take an average of the essays you write (otherwise 4 would be as good as 8). They also encourage this in the instructions IIRC. IMO you should get to work right now finding better experiences for Western's ABS. Even though your GPA is great, that actually doesn't matter for interview invites. It's just a cutoff pre-interview. It all depends on the essays.

  30. Yes, my main point was that enlisting for medical school and residency for 6 years is a big undertaking without any support (based on what the OP has presented, they are pretty much on their own. Again if this is not the case, then it can help favourable for this goal of medicine), and not to forget we are all assuming they are already a competitive applicant and haven't taken into account time to do the MCAT, buff grades(if applicable) and buff non-academics(if applicable). Doing a 2 year accelerated nursing program and practicing as a nurse is infinitely easier route than 6 years of medic

  34. Sounds like you will be mostly relying on yourself, as you don't have much family support. I can not imagine how difficult that would be - seeing many colleagues who did medicine/residency with kids in 2 parent families..but having lots of family support. First two years (textbook) phase can be more doable(but meaning you will need to study a lot after the kids are put to bed and that your attention will take away from the kids), but definitely 3rd/4th year you will need a lot of nanny support - which is going to be extremely expensive. I guess it also depends how old your elementary kids

  35. Hey! No worries at all. I actually just checked my email and I received my acceptance at the end of April when I applied. Unfortunately, I am not certain if the committee uses a rolling admissions process or not, though it kind of sounds that way. That said, I would still guess that the earliest admissions offers are sent sometime in mid/late April.

  36. I personally had no issues. Just make sure (if possible) that nobody else in your space is using the wifi during that time! Alternatively, if you have the means, you could purchase some additional data on your phone plan and use that as a hot spot for your laptop.

  37. Thanks, guys. I woke up early today after taking the day yesterday and decided to not mope around. I have been writing drafts for 4 hours today. Just have to get through this. I am forcing myself to remember that I just have to present myself the best way possible and that I can't give up after the near decade I've spent on this medical journey. Thanks for the encouragement and advice.

  38. Il me semble que le 0,5 de cote pour les régions éloignées n'ait pas encore appliqué... C'est une mesure qui est étudié en ce moment. Mais, je crois aussi qu'avec ton 4.1/4.3 en biologie, tu as des chances selon moi !

  39. Salut! Alors moi j'avais 33,7 de cote R de mémoire et 4,2/4,3 avec 15 crédits d'accumuler et je suis rentré en première vague l'an passé. Donc c'est faisable, mais à prendre en compte si tu es à l'udem ou non (+0,5 si t à l'udem) et si tu viens d'une région ''éloignée'' comme moi (+0,5 si tu viens du sag-lac, abitibi, bas st-lau, etc.). Pour ce qui est du calcul de la CRU, je crois que même ceux qui s'en occupent ne savent pas trop comment ça marche... j'ai demandé à du personnel de l'udem l'an passé et personne a pu me répondre... Donc je te dirais honnêtement de pas trop te casser la tête av

  41. I am not against medical students being vaccinated in a higher priority sequence than the general population. I think in the sense that our system needs to generate competent medical student graduates to begin residency, you are also an essential component of the workforce. However, can you consider the timing of this petition and the specifics of your request bit more carefully? In terms of timing, there is a national, critical shortage of vaccines right now affecting everyone. Even if they wanted to supply vaccines to students, they could not do so because the supply across the country

  43. This isn't typically a thing at Western (or at least it hasn't been in the past few application cycles) but it seems like there's interest so I will reach out to the current admission reps and see what they can do! Last year there was an option to be paired up with a first year who you could contact over email - I'll check in on the status of that as well. stay tuned update: keep an eye on your email! info to come soon!!

  45. But seriously, regardless of degree, everyone should write the MCAT. I'm sure the guy who took the challenge to pursue a biochemistry degree will score higher than the pussy who decided to pursue an easy degree.
