  4. 36.3 est 100% safe d’avoir une entrevue à la première convocation! Expérience personnelle, j’ai été convoqué direct il y a 2 ans avec un 36.1 (et l’année passée aussi avec un 36.8), et j’avais un ami qui était convoqué direct lui aussi avec un 35.6. Oubliez pas, cette fois-ci, le CASPer compte aussi pour les convocations, alors vous pouvez sûrement vous rattraper avec ça!

  6. I'm not sure how you're coming to that conclusion, especially the estimation of 4000-5000 QC university applicants (even as a total of all applicants across all cohorts I think 4-5k is too high). Last year there were 1035 total applicants in the QC University cohort, of which 76% (~790ish) proceeded to file review. This information is corroborated not only by the statistics they published on their website last year (which is still posted), but also by what was sent out to refused applicants who requested their rank.

  7. Definitely - and this is why i enjoy contributing to this forum, multiple view points help round out discussion! I will say that i am biased towards pessimism on this specific topic, given the lack of support the medical school system has shown some of my colleagues with children, and seeing how much work taking care of two young children is for a single parent caregiver. Definitely don't want to discourage OP, but rather ensure they get the most facts possible about the process through medical school to residency before embarking on the road of working towards pre-reqs etc.

  8. Ne t'inquiete pas... ta cote r est beaucoup plus élevée que la mienne haha... Mais cette année je pense que même ceux avec une cote R de 32/33 ont de très bonnes chances d'être convoqués aux entrevues

  12. They don't have direct tables comparing but they do list number of first choice applicants and total applicants per specialty and separately list number of applicants matched to each specialty so the match rate can be calculated relatively easily. See below for my recent analysis of this very subject.

  14. I found the submission kinda anticlimactic, haha. I feel like I might be constantly checking my emails now. But overall feeling more relaxed and a bit excited to see how it turns out. Edited to add that one of my references didn’t submit their letter... thankfully I had an extra one for that specialty, but I’d strongly encourage any future carms applicants to do the same and try to have an extra. Can’t imagine how stressful it would have been had I not!

  15. Living in Cork costs around 6-10k euros for the academic year rent. Food might be around 200 euros a month and a typical pay as you go phone plan is 20 euros/month. In general it is a good city with nice people.

  16. 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

  17. Salut ! Tu n'as pas besoin d'expérience pour travailler comme technicien(ne) de laboratoire. Ils te feront passer en entrevue pour savoir si tu possèdes les qualités qu'ils recherchent (minutie, logique, etc). Le fait que tu souhaites être admis(e) en pharmacie va les accrocher :)

  18. I’m not sure what happened... I was no longer receiving email responses, so not sure if something came up in their personal life or an issue with their email. I wasn’t able to get through to their office by phone. But it all worked out in the end. And it’s smart you asked them to submit a little earlier too! I had done that with my medical school apps also

  20. Personnellement, ma cote est resté identique à celle que j'avais eu à la première session (36,3). C'est vraiment meilleur que ce que je pensais, mais je commence à douter un peu sur mes chances d'avoir une entrevue quelque part en voyant vos cotes . À ce point, il y a pas grand chose que je puisse contrôler et on va voir ce qu'il va se passer

  22. goddamn 39.4... je suis vrm content pour vous, finalement les choses ont encore mieux marché qu’autre chose, et vos efforts ont été réellement récompensés au final! Side note: juste pour te dire qu’avec 38.5, même si tu foires tes MEM comme jamais (juste pas trop, question de pas te faire éliminer ahaha), t’auras quand même une assez bonne chance de rentrer à Sherbrooke!!

  23. Holy shit je suis tellement contente pour toi! Je pensais que les cotes étaient publiées le 17, je me demande si tout le monde va recevoir la sienne aujourd'hui. Est-ce qu'on vous avait avertis d'avance qu'elle sortirait aussi tôt? En tout cas, maintenant t'as plus du tout à stresser par rapport à ça. Je suis sûre que tes efforts vont porter fruit.

  24. Félicitations! Ta grosse cote en automne est certainement due aux distributions anormales dans plusieurs cours. Dans ce cas, ils utilisent une formule plus avantageuse pour les élèves au-dessus de la moyenne dans les groupes forts. Ce qui explique le décalage important entre la cote que tu attendais (autour de 36 je crois) et ce que tu as obtenu. On attends toujours nos cotes et elles ne sont pas encore sortie!!!!

  28. It's just updated in the last couple weeks on their main page of requirements! I did my undergrad at Mun and I just love everything the med school stands for, they truly do take a holistic approach to the applications which I think is great. Totally go for it!

  29. They did?! I looked literally a month ago...thought I saw that you still need to be full-time. Can you send the link where it says you don't need to be? Thanks for the encouragement regarding MUN and Dal! Yeah I have heard MUN is really EC-heavy so that would be great for someone like me who is not as strong in the GPA department. Might as well take a punt right? Haha

  30. I'm still waiting! I heard they're supposed to send us an email to confirm everything but so far nothing for me. On the application site though it does show that all my documents and stuff were submitted.

  31. Are you sure? Here's the 2020 CaRMS match data for IMG match rate. The numbers are percentage of IMG applicants who match to each specialty. For example, just over 10% of IMG applicants to anesthesiology matched. I wouldn't say a 7% match rate would be a "good chance"... Now to be fair the US match numbers for IMGs are much better. The following is for non-American IMG applicants (I assume you're not American) percent who matched: So 50% of family medicine IMG applicants matched. Obviously if you want to do pediatrics/pathology/neurology/rad onc you're looking at 2/3 chance

  33. I absolutely agree with you. Medicine is not for everyone, and if someone thinks its not worth it, totally fine to do something else. Sacraficing a good portion of your life to the grind is a lot easier when you're young and have no commitments, for sure. The point I'm trying to make is that with all else being equal, if medicine is what she wants to do, it might be harder for her than her classmates but it's totally possible as a single mom.

  37. Shadowing is not relevant to applications in Canada. Many schools actively discourage it because of ethical concerns related to patient privacy and rights, equitability of access to opportunities, and so on. In addition, many medical schools are not even allowing their own students to shadow because of COVID. So I would actively advise you against trying to do any shadowing outside of actually volunteer or paid work where such activities are relevant. Edit: for example, https://www.cpsbc.ca/for-physicians/college-connector/2015-V03-05/04

  39. 6 years ago I wrote my story here on being accepted to medical school. I stopped back to say that I was just registered by my provincial college, I've completed my residency, and I'm stepping into my first job as staff in a couple of months. I'm also happily married, and we have two beautiful children. That part happened along the way... It meant a lot to see what people thought of my story. Writing it out like that made me feel really intensely vulnerable at the same time that it gave me some closure to that chapter of my life. If you came here in search of inspiration: you

  42. Last year we received news mid-April and interviews were the first two weeks of May. I think usually people hear back around March, but I'm not sure.

  43. Ça dépend du cours. Par example, en chimie organique, la moyenne est de 79%, ce qui me semble très normal et je suis assez au-dessus de la moyenne que ça ne m'inquiète pas trop. Cependant, dans un cours comme algèbre linéaire, la moyenne est de 84%. J'en connais pas assez sur les stats des dernières années pour dire si c'est normal, mais ça me parait gonflé...

  44. I was perusing the family med program descriptions on the carms website, and noticed that the Calgary stream is “under revision” as of December. What does this mean for applicants this year?

  45. No idea if Calgary family is good or bad but that is a one sided story of someone who has clearly been struggling with mental health issues that affect their performance. It's a shame the program forced them to do strict remediation stuff instead of seek counselling/mental health support which would likely have been more beneficial in the long run.
