  2. Just work hard and be kind. Get things done and help your residents out when they have tons of tasks to get done. Knowing anatomy is helpful for when you are scrubbed in the OR.

  3. Pre-clerkship electives tend to have lower expectations since your preceptors will assume that you're there for career exploration.

As soon as you try to make things subjective then you run into problems, and people can claim discrimination, how can you say they are more in need than me, etc. I don't know of a good solution. I do know that there are at least admissions programs for indigenous appli

  7. Hey! Fellow UofA applicant here. I can only comment on the UofA program. I’ve been following the admission stats since ~2016.

I would say it would be worth it to apply this year to see what happens, as there is literally no precedent of what they will accept. I think you would need to have an amazing DAT score though.

  9. Anyone hear anything today? I'm kinda surprised that we haven’t heard from Remo that the 10 remaining seats have been filled at this point. All my WL friends made it off and I want to scream into the void LOL (very happy for them don’t get me wrong!)
