  6. This question makes me so sad. Really speaks to the classism that exists in the medical field, and more broadly in higher-education. Include it proudly, OP.

  7. I really hope this doesn't come across as attacking certain individuals, or people who have lots of volunteer experience, because thats 1000% not my intention. I guess this is just a vent post because I'm feeling very frustrated with the Canadian medical school system...Every time I see someone posting their ABS on these forums or **DELETED** who has mostly employment experience and less ecs, everyone is quick to suggest doing more volunteer work etc. While I know that people's intentions are in no way bad, it just gets me thinking about how f-ing privileged people have to be to be able to spe

  10. CaRMS has posted their 2021 data forum presentation. Some highlights below: Highlights below: I don't know if this has been posted before but interesting to see that a) Australia has the highest match rate, followed by europe and b) the Australian numbers are way lower than I would have expected. Second, Caribbean is really low. IMG numbers overall are decreasing it seems as shown below: This chart is interesting: We can add ER to the short list of most compeditive specialties, there were 1.75 applicants for every spot. Also this is the first time if I recall

  12. Seems like we have more declined offers and waitlist withdrawls from bin 1 at this point in time relative to last year. Hopefully this keeps up for the next few weeks and we can see a full clear on bin 1 and some good movement for bin 2 .

  15. Allô! Vu que vous êtes quand même plusieurs à me demander si j'ai peut-être des tips/stratégies pour bien répondre aux questions, j'ai pensé que c'est peut-être plus pertinent pour moi de vous écrire un petit guide (selon mon expérience personnelle bien sûr) pour avoir un peu une idée sur la stratégie que j'ai développée pour m'attaquer aux situations That said, prenez pas ma stratégie comme du cash, vous pouvez adapter ma stratégie pour avoir une qui vous fit mieux (ou bien de ne pas l'utiliser du tout si ça marche pas pour vous, it's completely okay!

  18. As a POC in the system, I could not agree more. I find that that race is all-to-often conflated with other factors, be it cultural diversity, or SES. I grew up in an upper middle class suburb, far removed from my roots and cultural heritage. Though I appear overtly as a POC, my experiences and culture do not reflect this. I have little extra to offer marginalized and minority patients aside from the actual colour of my skin. I speak nothing but english. I do not know their culture. I have not lived their struggle. Someone of a different ethnic denomination who has underwent similar experi

    Waitlist Party 2020/2021

    I got an offer to my first choice off the waitlist today. Mature OOP VFMP. The only school that gave me an interview among 7 and the only offer I got. Really feel for those who are waiting. Just know that if you made it this far you are already qualified for the program so stay positive and keep on pushing.

  21. People can do what they want although I think it can be really cringey. Especially the ones that just show off how type A they are (Waking up at 5 am, workouts, going to class, what they eat, watching them study... Like who cares, lol). I guess there's a market for it.

  22. Last night I declined my offer in favour of Queens. That will open up a spot for the next person on the list. Wishing everybody good luck, a calm mind and an open heart.

    Honnêtement, je peux comprendre que t’as un avis ferme par rapport à ton choix d’université , mais t’as pas besoin de dénigrer le programme où vont plusieurs sur ce Thread au point de dire que c’est de la merde. Bref no shade mais il y a des meilleurs facons de communiquer , avec respect surtout

  31. Hey everyone! Firstly, huge and sincere congratulations to all who received an offer this year to join the UBC Class of 2025! I am personally very excited to welcome you to the UBC med family and meet you soon However, this time of year is very bittersweet, as the majority of people unfortunately do not receive the news they were hoping for. Being there many times in the past within my own journey, I can understand how discouraging and devastating this feels. Were it not for the tremendous amount of support I received along the way, I simply wouldn't be here in my position today.

  32. Hey everyone, I wanted to start off by saying if you don't get the news that you were hoping for this year, I am so sorry. This process can seem so daunting and outright impossible at time. I know everyone says "there's always next year" and that probably isn't what you want to hear but truly this isn't a matter of if you'll get in but when. If this is what you want to do, never give up. You WILL be a doctor if this is where your heart lies! This was my 5th consecutive application cycle and I am so grateful to be able to say that I was offered a seat off the waitlist yesterday (IP) at 1:24pm (

  36. That makes sense since there is no solution. 1. Emphasize GPA - we already know high SES upbringing tends to correlate with higher grades. 2. Emphasize MCAT - Same relationship with GPA (although I vaguely recall seeing some article say that admission tests are actually the best way to sort since they're less vulnerable to "knowing the system" like grades are and this makes sense. If someone has high grades they could have been in an easy program, someone with a high MCAT took a universally standardized test). 3. Emphasize ECs. Does anyone not think that if medical schools ma

  37. Je suis content d'annoncer que j'ai été accepté en physiothérapie! J'étais 14e sur la liste d'attente universitaire. Pour les futurs applicants, j'ai fais un baccalauréat en kin à l'UQTR et j'avais 3.84/4.3 (92 crédits). Cela m'a donné une CRU de 33.35 (comprenant un boni de 0.5). Mon CASPer à aussi été favorable.

  39. Lol. Tbh A longer holdup is actually in everyone’s interests (provided the waitlist movement will be the same as previous years). It gives a longer window for other schools’ waitlist offers to go out, potentially causing some people to withdraw from this one and subsequently create more movement

  44. Hi everyone! I never understood before why people would post and tell people they are rejecting their offer (seems a little self-important) but I was on a waitlist last year and always appreciated these posts for the momentary hope they brought. The waitlist is really tough but I'm rooting for you all All this to say I will be declining my OOP VFMP offer to go to UofT! Good luck to everyone, you all deserve it so much!!

  46. You can marry a francophone, have children in the US during a short-stay, raise them in your favourite other IP province (or region) and then live in QC for a year when they start CEGEP or undergrad. They will then qualify as QC residents, both Canadian and US citizens and get additional IP benefits. Plus, they will be bilingual and can go for the surplus of QC spots.

  48. Je vais tenter de répondre à tes questions d'après ce que j'ai appris lors du dernier colloque (je suis étudiant en pharmacie). - Comparé au pharmd, il est beaucoup plus facile d'entrer à la maitrise. Par contre, ca arrive que des gens sur la liste d'attente ne soient pas pris. Pour les critères d'admission, essentiellement il faut au moins un gpa de 3 et te vendre auprès du comité d'admission en présentant tes motivations, expériences, etc. Tu trouveras plus de détails ici : https://pharm.umontreal.ca/etudes/cycles-superieurs/maitrise-en-pharmacotherapie-avancee/#c67297 - Je ne pou
