    whyKD reacted to NeedACar in Others Planning to Writw USMLE Class 2020   
    I've had a few people also reach out to me through message, so maybe closer to O-week I'll make a FB group (if everyone has/uses fb) just so we know who's interested?
    Very glad to see others are going to be taking this on!

    Hey guys, I thought learning about finances, taxes, etc. may be a good idea before starting medical school. It's embarrassing how little I know about these things. Could you guys suggest some great ways for me to learn about them this summer? Thanks.

    whyKD reacted to rmorelan in Medical School Debt - Impact On School Choice   
    I am probably one of the most frugal people on this forum - that is just the type of person I am. I loath debit with a passion. I despise loans of any kind. I still don't think the debit should be a serious consideration in picking the right school for you. This is one of those few times when you are making a critical investment and you have make sure you get the most out of it. 
    You have to pick a school that will let you succeed to the point that you will achieve the next step for you, and become the best doctor you can be. In the end that leads to a greater chance of getting your residency position of choice and going from there.
    That is not to say the debit isn't an annoyance to say the least, just that it is overwhelmed in my mind by more important considerations.

    Please don't think this means anything. I've applied and interviewed at other schools a couple of times and the kinks and glitches they've had led to people going crazy with theories everywhere: 99.99% of those are wrong.

    Just curious... have decisions ever been sent out early? There's really no way they'll release them before May 9th? My patience is running out and my summer plans are on hold cause of this

    Edit: Also, do you guys still have the 'medicine interviews' tab on their Owl page?

    whyKD reacted to kbilal08 in Electives At Canadian Schools As Us Md Grad   
    Hey Everyone
    I'm going through a bit of a dilemma here.  Could someone please clarify/provide some more info for me on the topic of applying for away electives. 
    I was hoping to do away electives during my 4th year at at least 3-4 Canadian institutions.  I did NOT realize that I would be considered as an International applicant for electives.
    I am a Canadian citizen, I did my undergrad at U of Toronto, I'm completing MD at a school in New York City.  Even for the CaRMs application, i'm considered a Canadian graduate rather than an international medical graduate.
    Am I just confused? Or am I really an international medical graduate for the purposes of Electives?

    You think? I do wonder when they actually have their rankings/list compiled and if that's quite a while earlier than the admissions offer date.

    whyKD reacted to ihsh in Comparisons Between Campuses   
    Hello everyone,
    I am currently in the process of ranking the three campuses of MacMed, and I was wondering if I could get some insight into the following areas:
    1) Opportunities and CaRMS matching:
    How do the three campuses compare when it comes to research and shadowing opportunities? How much will these differences ultimately affect residency matching? (I know it's a little bit early to worry about this right now, but I'd just like to be informed...) Does your campus affect where you can do your electives?  
    2) Living Cost/ location
    In Hamilton, student housing is approximately $400-$500 per month. Are the living costs comparable at the other two locations? I likely won't be driving. Are there certain campuses where not having a car will pose difficulties?  
    Thanks in advance!

    Cause you met the pre-interview cutoffs. Don't worry yourself, my 3.61 cGPA falls in the same Z-score range as your CARS. And there have been people that have gotten in with worse GPAs.

    I've been procrastinating on these forums so much ever since interview invites and I noticed that the first page of the "most replied to" threads under the "Medical School Interviews" is basically all about either MMI prep resources or what girls should wear:
    A combined total of 25 pages of KNAWLEDGE! Happy reading
