  1. My fiancee doesn't have an account on Premed101, but she asked me to post here that she was admitted to UBC MPT off the waitlist at 15:30 today.
  2. My fiancee is waitlisted for UBC PT and I want to coordinate my vacation time with hers (if she gets accepted) -- has UBC announced what the summer vacation dates will be for incoming first-years?
  3. My partner got waitlisted at UBC PT today. Finally, after weeks of waiting ... more waiting!
  4. I tried e-mailing them and calling them; no luck so far. The CBC says that the state of emergency will last through Sunday, and possibly Monday. From the CBC: I guess they can write off a large number of OOP applicants (if they can afford to do that), or they can accept Skype interviews, or they can rank applicants without interviewing them. Or some combination of the above.
  5. My flight to St John's for my Monday interview was cancelled, and all subsequent flights for both airlines were either cancelled or fully booked. I e-mailed them to ask for a Skype interview and haven't heard anything yet!
  6. Yeah, I should add that I didn't really like Doing Right, SYWTBADE, or Medical School Interviews. Others seem to like them, though. I know it's cheezy, but I really like How to Win Friends and Influence People and think it would be more useful than any of these books for the interview.
  7. I'm giving away my copies of So You Want To Be A Doctor, Eh? and Medical School Interviews (Lee and Picard / ISCMedical) to anyone willing to pick them up from me (Vancouver). The only condition I'm attaching is that you give them away to someone else once you're done with them. My books are gone now, but see Caleb's post below!
  8. Teal is nice, I'm pretty happy that it's winning. White looks good, but, knowing me, I'd get it dirty immediately then never clean it and I'd walk around looking unhygenic my whole med student career
  9. I got an offer off the waitlist today! I am probably going to turn it down to attend UBC, but it was still nice to hear and I thought I'd share it with you lovely people
  10. Thanks for your input, everyone. I've got the option to pick up a good old Civic off a family member cheap. I've lived in van for 10 years without needing a car until now, but 3rd+ year has me thinking......
  11. I'll piggyback on your comment (slash, give a slightly dissenting opinion): for me, interview practice and feedback from a variety of med students, residents, and docs I know was I think much more valuable than that from other pre-meds.
  12. Well, I'm going to work. Here's what will be going through my head all morning:
