  1. Just adhere to the word count. It's not worth the risk
  2. I am considering sending my personal statements to my referees (along with CV, etc of course), to help them write a more personalized reference letter. However, I am worried that the letter may end up having some commonalities with my personal statement and the programs may think that I wrote the reference letters myself. Am I overthinking this? Do people usually send personal statements to referees or just the CV, etc?
  3. Have there been any talks of pulling out med students from rotations at any of the schools in Canada given the exponential rise in cases?
  4. I meant after the first round.. The website only has the data for after the second round.
  5. I am a UBC student interested in IM and I want to do an OOP IM elective (CTU, C/T or subspecialty) at U of Ottawa I do not have any contacts at U of Ottawa, so do not know too much about these electives. So was wondering if anybody has heard anything good or bad about U of Ottawa CTU, Consult/Triage or subspecialty electives (Resp, GI, Cardio, Rheum, Endo, Palliative, etc) that they dont mind sharing. Thanks in advance!
  6. I also recommend Western over Queens based on what you said about Vancouver. Which Ottawa subspecialty elective are you considering?
  7. Are any of these available to current scotia LOC holders that signed up 2+ years ago? Or do we need to switch to another bank and switch back to scotia to qualify for these offers?
  8. Is it gonna be no annual fee forever or just for a year/a few years? And did you have the choice to go with any of RBC's premium cards?
  9. Oh you probably got it when they were offering the "First year no annual fee" promo. I dont think banks would give premium cards for no annual fee to us just because we're medical students without signing an LOC with them.
  10. I was asking mcatthrow101 since he/she got the premium credit card for no annual fee WITHOUT having an LOC with RBC just by stating he/she's a medical student as he/she claims. I am aware you can get a credit card with no AF with an LOC with RBC or Scotia but thanks.
  11. Which RBC credit card did you get for no annual fee and how did you ask for it?
  12. This is the offer. https://pages.mdm.ca/1696-SRLOC.html. And the full eligibility criteria seem pretty straightforward too: "The Student and Resident Line of Credit (SRLOC) Incentive Program is available only to MD Management Limited (MDM) clients who are at the time of opening the SRLOC a CMA Member in good standing (“Participant”). A Participant must open a new SRLOC through the MDM/National Bank of Canada referral arrangement between May 22nd, 2018, and September 30th, 2018 (the “Eligible Student and Resident Line of Credit Period”). MDM will deposit to the Participant’s bank acco
  13. I am with Scotia LOC right now, but when I asked if they could match MD Financial's $500 offer, they refused. So now I am thinking about switching to MD Financial. Does anyone know how easy it is switching LOCs, and what the process is like?
  14. I just came across this promo from MD Financial. I already have an LOC with Scotiabank. Has anyone tried contacting Scotia/RBC and asking them to match MD Financial's offer as kind of a retention effort? Cuz if they can't match it, I am open to switching to MD Financial to get the $500. https://pages.mdm.ca/1696-SRLOC.html
  15. Good luck everyone! I was in your shoes just last year, and I know how stressful it can get!! You are all deserving individuals and this process is far from perfect!
  16. So you should spend $750 in the first three months to get the bonus? Otherwise you don't?
  17. Thanks!! I also have another mastercard with 1.5% cashback. Should I use that just for "other purchases"?
  18. What if you have the AMEX and the infinite momentum VISA card? Which one I should use mainly and where?
