  2. Late adding this, but for stat purposes: Time Stamp: 8:40 am EST Result: Accepted GPA: 3.94 Stream: English Year: Finished MSc in the fall Interview Thoughts: Mixed feelings. Some parts felt okay, but there were a few questions where the interviewers had to interrupt to rephrase so that I understood correctly. All to say that how you think it goes isn't necessarily a good representation of how the final results will play out! Will be declining my offer in favour of another school. Good luck to those on the WL!

  6. I’m hoping the waitlist starts significantly moving this week, but it’s probably going to be until the week of the 24th :/

  7. Yeah, this is usually how it works. But I think those numbers aren't accurate because the fb group isn't only the people from the new class, it contains people from the upper years as well (my friend is currently a u of c med student). So people from the upper years may have been added to the group this week too!

    Appartement MTL

    Salut! Côte des neiges est un quartier très populaire pour les étudiants, sur la rue Édouard Mon Petit, Côte st Catherine ou Van Horne ! Le prix pour un 4 1/2 ça varie entre 1000-1400$, ça dépend ce que tu recherches. Tu peux trouver en bas de 1000$ mais c’est très très rare, surtout maintenant que tous les apparts sont déjà partis (Mars-Avril était le meilleur moment pour chercher). Les 1 1/2 coûtent environ 650$, 3 1/2 entre 750-900$ Le mieux c’est aller en coloc, ça va te coûter entre 450-700$/mois donc plus abordable

  12. What kind of work or jobs can a first year or even a second year dental student do over their summer? I hear shadowing or mentoring is out of question this year due to COVID. Please share your experiences below!

    I can only comment on the IM program. Also quebec is a different beast when it comes to CARMS, and wouldn’t use them as a model for the rest of Canada, let alone Ontario

  18. Hi guys, I just got accepted to the CoM at the Usask! I was thinking about student loans and was wondering if anyone on this forum has any previous experience applying for a student loan while in some other healthcare profession or just has the general know how. Of course, I am just asking for informational purposes and won't consider any replies as actual financial advice! Thanks

  20. i think it could definitely at least partly be due to the forum/this thread being more popular, since the timestamp theory gained a lot more credibility last year with all of the tracking + excel documentation :^) i'm not sure about the latter (although i have been wondering about it too tbh), but regardless i'm crossing my fingers that we get lots and lots of waitlist movement this cycle!!!

  22. Hi! Congrats on choosing Mac!! Just wondering what made you choose Mac? I'm currently deciding between Mac, Western, and UofT but having a tough time deciding. I would really appreciate anyone's insights when comparing these three schools.

  23. What is the "win" in knowing any of this minutiae information? It doesn't affect whether you get into medical school or not. All it does is create extra administrative work for dissemination for no clearly helpful reason.

  26. Je sais pas pourquoi, mais comme nous n’avons toujours pas de nouvelles, j’ai l’impression que le comité d’admission n’avait pas encore déterminé les rangs... Probablement qu’il avait juste regardé qui avait un score au dessus du cutoff d’admission et de LA lors de l’entrevue. Je me trompe surement, mais c’est mon impression en ce moment...

  28. Yes, agree that this is the case. And in addition to deferrals, I suspect the remaining spots some years are for 1st year students who are required to repeated year 1, of which there’s on average 0-2.

  29. I don't want to dampen the mood but the AFMC data doesn't differentiate between IP and OOP applicants who reject their offers. If you look at UBC's data, OOP applicants are much more likely to decline their offer than IP candidates. Only 7 IP declined their spot last year and only 12 in 2019(which was not impacted by COVID). Also the AFMC data is fine. UBC did not leave and empty spot and did not mismanage their wait list. The spot was give to someone who deferred their offer the previous year. If you add the acceptances each year to the the number of deferred applicants the previous year

  33. Honestly I’m nervous to post this. I’ve seen the stats of so many brilliant people here and feel like I’m not quite up to par. BUT I wanted to share my stats for anyone who might feel like me, like they aren’t good enough, and hopefully it’ll help give someone some inspiration and confidence to apply next year! sGPA: 3.72 cGPA: 3.36 #of times you applied: first time applying Schools you applied to and their responses: Western, Mac, UofT and Queens Accepted into Western!!

  37. Hello à tous! Je suis collégienne et j'ai été admise à ULaval en médecine le 29 avril lors de ce cycle d'admission. Étant donné que le CASPer valait 100%, je peux en conclure que j'ai dû bien le réussir et je tiens à partager la manière dont je me suis préparée pour vous aider Je peux comprendre à quel point c'est stressant d'appliquer en médecine et de devoir passer par toutes les étapes : cote R, CASPer, MMI... et si je peux rendre ça un ptit peu moins stressant pour les futurs candidats en vous partageant comment je me suis préparée, ce sera déjà ça! Tout d'abord, j'ai pris conscience

    Ottawa vs Toronto

    Also an MS1 at ottawa. Just want to chime in and say so far all the staff that I've encountered (physicians and the occasional resident) have been super approachable and genuinely want you to learn and succeed which is always nice. I also think ottawa offers a good mix of "city" medicine and rural medicine as ottawa is a relatively larger city but has multiple small communities around it. So you can kinda get the best of both worlds. I also don't think going back to live with your parents is a "setback". The only setback as a med student in my opinion is accumulating more debt.

  42. Oh 2024s please be gentle. lol Break the cycle of ridiculous colours and pick bright blue or grey! Bright blue satisfies the need for a bright colour (if we must) and grey looks at least pseudo neutral/professional and could possibly even be worn to a conference/professional event.

The questions felt extremely tricky and I remember feeling let down that there were some experiences that I couldn't contort to match the questions. Had some friendly interviewers, but honestly couldn't remember what their expressions were like because I was staring at my webcam. Felt fairly good immediately after, then
