  1. Recently, I've been interested in aboriginal mental health and I was wondering if there were any U of T professors or any other faculty I could contact?
  2. From the information I gathered last year, and verifying with the current BeMo website, I still see discrepancies. They did remove CMS though, which is good. I doubt all of these schools changed their policies within one year. Furthermore, these aren't the only discrepancies, only the ones that immediately stood out to me. The following are incorrect from the website regarding characterization of Canadians of OOS or intl. Saint Louis Stony Brook Hawaii Are you using the MSAR to see if they check out? Last year, MSAR only stated if a school accepts Canadian applicants,
  3. Result: Rejected Timestamp: May 14, 9:07 AM. GPA: OMSAS 3.94 MCAT: Passed cutoffs ECs: Check history Essays: Felt decent about them, spent several weeks, heavily revised, checked over by several people. Interview: I felt 3 went quite well, and one of them felt below average, but even then not a disaster. I had a good feeling coming out of the interview, and then like many people, became quite self-critical as time passed. Maybe I put too much pressure on myself for this interview. Honestly speaking, though, having been on so many waitlists, I would rather get reje
  4. Haha, I recall asking for their opinion when I was applying to US schools! Didn't know they got into Canada as well. Thanks for letting me know.
  5. Thank you JohnGrisham! I PM'd you, but no need to respond since you shared your perspective.
  6. Thank you for your quick response Tere! It is great to have your perspective.
  7. Thank you for the post and for helping me with my own decision regarding US MD vs Canadian MD! For future readers, I want to share some of AS9Wave's insights regarding which one may be a better option if you might be pursuing a competitive specialty down the road. I was under the impression that CaRMS is quite subjective, but AS9Wave showed me that there are many things within one's control (i.e. working very hard on electives/research/extracurriculars) and that performing well on electives is key. At the same time, I learned that there can be people who may be disappointed by CaRMS if their p
  8. Thank you for the comment Edict! I've read several of your posts as a premed, and also recently while making this decision. I was focused on whether theoretically is the better option, but practically speaking I feel you would be right - it would be a hassle. Good to know your opinion on the potential US MD --> Canadian residency disadvantage (at least for Georgetown) too.
  9. Thank you for informing me of this thread, HisLovePerfects. I've actually read it before I made this topic, because AS9Wave had a great discussion of many points including lifestyle, finances and Visa, but I wanted to keep this focused on the chances of matching into a competitive specialty. I actually messaged this person directly, and they were very helpful. For future readers, I will share their perspective: as subjective CaRMS may seem, a lot is within one's control - the ones who end up making it to competitive specialties worked very hard on electives/research/extracurriculars, and
  10. First of all, thanks for your response and being active on the forum! I've read a fair number of your posts while lurking the forums as a premed. And as for what you've said above - this is basically what I've read from existing threads so far. Data regarding both Canadian MD -> US residency and US MD --> CaRMS seems lacking in number and seems unrepresentative of the average CMG/AMG's real chances. As for the anecdotal hearsay - I just wanted to see if other people heard about this too. After messaging several people on the forum directly, no one supported this either. As for your
  11. Hello there! After countless rejections, I've been blessed with two acceptances this cycle and I wanted to reach out for your opinion regarding pursuing a US MD from Georgetown University vs a Canadian MD from UBC. I've read the previous US vs Canadian MD threads, which were very informative. But those discussions were quite broad, considering many factors. Currently, my main goal is keeping as many specialties open as possible. Because I have only seen about 2 specialties (FM and neuro) for an extended time, I do not know what I will ultimately end up choosing after I've had greater
  12. Result: Accepted - VFMP!! Geography: OOP Early or Regular Deadline: Regular Timestamp: 11:57 AM PST AGPA: 93% MCAT: 514 (130/125/130/129) EC: Feel free to stalk my previous posts for US MD applications Interview: I felt that the interview went very well! Left thinking that even if I had the opportunity, I would not choose to re-do this interview overall, despite some stations being better than others. Of course - don't let my optimism fool you - I thought the same for some of my IP interviews, and they did not lead to acceptances. At the end of the day I consider myself very f
  13. As a long time lurker, I know how passionate you are for medicine. Queen's waitlist moves a lot so best of luck!!! Rooting for you.
  14. Anyone able to disprove that OMSAS offer = email offer and no OMSAS offer = no email offer? Myself and others from the Ottawa thread are unable to hahaha...
