  1. Not the original posters (I am exam free and they aren't yet) but here is a response I wrote in another thread. I'll see myself out of this AMA now
  2. What have the social events this year been like? Not asking in any snarky way- curious about what your class has been doing.
  3. Yup. My stats are also quite average for UBC. On the other hand, I thought my UofT interview was my best and got a flat out rejection
  4. Felt like garbage after I did mine. In one station, the interviewer asked me a question and my brain had a complete fart about what one term meant so I asked him to repeat the question 3 times, then on the third time the bell rang and I just sat there in regret. In another, I got super intimidated by the interviewer for some reason and they were quite stone faced so I gave pretty bad and like one sentence responses to a complicated question. Then we just sat there after he had nothing more to ask. Finally, in another station, I spent all 8 minutes on the main question and literally conclu
  5. Just a heads up that if you do not have the rural application portion completed, you won't be considered for NMP (source: Interview Information Package site instructions).
  6. I know a handful of people who have entered other professional programs while applying to med (some who are applying this cycle and some who were successful in entering med and left their previous program). Honestly, I think it is a smart move (depending on the program and your risk tolerance). From my understanding, grading standards are unique to the program you want. For example, if you went into law, some law schools keep a 75% average and you would have a hard time breaking into the 80s. This has the potential to kill your average. It would be good to hear opinions from others within your
  7. I verified for an OOP (Ontario) volunteer who worked under me 4 years ago this Friday morning. They're still working through applications.
  8. I think Western is the only school that won't take you. I know at least three people who have left professional programs (law, dent, pharm) partway to enter medicine, including myself. Depending on the school, they might look at your grades post acceptance and can potentially revoke your offer if they are too low.
  9. Did this for multiple organizations (~3?). Didn't seem to come across as a problem.
  10. I laughed reading this, realizing that I do everything listed too and that we sound so jaded to first years. Let the 2024s have their fun for the first few months haha. Would your classmate happen to have the initials E.Z? That's one person I know who does well while going to no lectures, cramming 4 days prior to exams and watching at double speed
  11. FLEX experiences and most research/summer travel plans got screwed.
  12. Funny enough, I came across your acceptance while scrolling through instagram. Congrats! I remember trying to start up practice groups with you last cycle around winter. Glad everything worked out. Sometimes the magic finally happens when you call your last shot
  13. I can't comment on UBC vs Queens since I never studied there (though I was there for an interview), but I'm from Toronto and attend UBC. Feel free to DM.
  14. Thanks for the response! What would you say overlaps with EM? Radiology or internal?
