  1. According to the hashtag in post https://www.facebook.com/MDFinancialManagement/posts/1579106072131776,we will apparently be finding out on July 6?
  2. Poll is up on Facebook http://ow.ly/uafV30ct8CL
  3. I did pure Arts courses while in undergrad - Medicine was not on my radar at the time. When I decided to take the MCAT a few years later, it was a very difficult - but surmountable - task. I mostly self-taught, using Khan Academy videos as well as the Kaplan MCAT books. I also had a few friends who had done biology, chemistry, and physics whom I was able to ask for help when needed. This route is definitely doable, but studying for the MCAT was my 'job' for nearly 3 months. I had quit my job and was not in school at the time, so I studied for 8 hours/day most days (I did do a bit of part-t
  4. Anyone have any idea when we can expect to hear about this year's backpack colour?
  5. Accepted IP. Second time applying, wait listed last year. MCAT: 508 (124 / 129 / 125 / 130) GPA: 3.7 Like most people I thought the interview went OK but not amazing. Non-traditional applicant with another professional degree. Limited ECs / volunteering in recent years although a fair bit while in undergrad.
  6. Congratulations and thanks for giving the rest of us some hope!
  7. I'm on the IP waitlist, but I wasn't able to get a feedback session as they were filled up....
  8. Congratulations! Thanks for keeping us posted!
  9. Wasn't sure if I should start a new thread or not, but I have a question along these lines. The OMSAS Instruction Booklet entry for NOSM ( http://www.ouac.on.ca/docs/omsas/b_omsas_e.pdf ) says Is this a requirement or a suggestion? I have an arts background but did not complete any full course equivalents in science according to their definition. I have been out of undergrad for 5 years now and also have a professional degree (not health- or science-related) so I would definitely call myself a non-trad. I studied enough science to do passably well on the MCAT (which I know NOSM d
  10. Thought I may as well create one for those of us on the NS waitlist...
  11. Waitlisted, NS Applicant Academic score: 19 / 25 (GPA: 3.7, MCAT 508) Essay/Supp: 20.25 / 35 Interview: 29.6 / 40 Total: 68.85 Since I don't think anyone's posted them yet, here are the average scores for accepted NS applicants: GPA: 3.8 (13/15) Old MCAT: 29 (7/10) New MCAT: 510 (7/10) Supp/Essay: 23.1 / 35 Interview: 31 / 40 Total: 74.1 Congrats to all those accepted!
  12. 2011 - March 7 2012 - March 5 2013 - March 7 2014 - March 11 2015 - March 17 2016 - ?? Getting close! (Hopefully) less than a month to go...
  13. I called Dal about this to clarify. They told me that any university-affiliated volunteer activity should be listed under extracurricular *only*, and that volunteer activities should only include non-university affiliated activities.
  14. The website ( http://medicine.dal.ca/departments/core-units/admissions/admissions/place-of-residence.html ) states that they have to be 2 periods of 12 consecutive months immediately prior to the start of the program. If you spent 1 year in the Maritimes back in 2005 and 1 year in 2015 it wouldn't be two periods of 12 consecutive months immediately prior to the start of the program. At least, that's how I read it. Might be worth a call to Dal.
