  1. Thank you for bringing these important statistics to light. You mentioned that very few unmatched CMG's did not rank a program that ranked them, but the data doesn't show whether those candidates applied broadly to begin with or not. You also mentioned that if there were more CMG spots, some CMG candidates would not have gone unmatched. I can see that this is true. I wonder, however, if it would be fair to increase the number of CMG spots at the expense of IMG spots. One could argue that a hardworking IMG who can succeed in a match where the success rate of IMG's is only 10% is more
  2. Interesting conversation about IMG's. I am surprised that a lot of people on this thread think that the solution to the problem of CMG's going unmatched is to have more residency spots dedicated to CMG's at the expense of IMG spots.

  3. Just curious to know: what type of documents do we need to submit?
  4. Thanks a lot for the info.

  6. Does anybody know why they are requesting this?
  7. I need to upload a bunch of documents for my proof of residency and the maximum size allowed is 3000 KB !!! Did anyone have this problem before where they were not able to upload because of maximum file size?
  8. Deadline for MDCM document submission is 9 pm Montreal time. https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/submitting
  9. Here is the link for the CV: https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/elements/cvmd-0
  10. Anyone else struggling to find a reason for inclusion for their CV entries? I am a having a hard time with that. For example, if I provided free services to impoverished areas, what would be the reason for inclusion? Can someone give me any examples?
  11. I have a question with regards to the CV: is there a specific order in which we should write the entries ....... like a chronological order ....... or most significant to least significant. What did you guys do?
  12. If I were to purchase a practice test, which one would y'all recommend? Astroff? BeMo?
  13. I heard about this program. Does it automatically correct any spelling or grammar mistakes you make during the actual test?
