  1. It would be good to create a centralized thread about deadlines to add additional sites, much like the open vs. closed thread. I'm interested in the above as well.

  4. Sent you a PM about this the day you posted but realized you haven't seen it. Let me know.
  5. You are only working on half the days in a given month?!?
  6. Osmosis is awesome for getting a concise summary of the key points of a condition in under 10 mins. I like it as a starting point for something I'm not familiar with, or when I just need to learn the basics fast. Also, videos are easier to take in when you are tired
  7. Rent in major centres (where most schools are located) can range from $1000-$1500 a month for a single occupancy rental. That's 12-18 K right there. Even if your rent is cheaper there are LOTS of other expenses to consider. 20 K on top of tuition doesn't seem realistic to me.
  8. Wow, these posts are brutal. For others reading just remember that these views are not necessarily representative, especially as each site has their own staff/teachers etc. My experience: Our lab instructors were amazing and I wouldn't have learned nearly as much without attending, and student affairs has been fantastic when I needed them. I was never brushed off or simply given a book recommendation, and follow up occurred on multiple occasions.
  9. I'm also interested in information about this, could those with experience DM or just post in this thread?
  10. You will change the way you study multiple times in med school. I wouldn't worry about it (assuming you are an incoming student), try things out and see what works for you. For example, I used to handwrite notes but now I only use flashcards.
  11. Whoa, yeah this could really go awry. What if you picked up some bad habits, like suturing behind the back or blindfolded?
  12. Most of this has worked out ok, but I'm pretty worried about not having the opportunity to make myself known to programs outside my home province.
  13. I started med school at 35, and I'm not the oldest in my class. Honestly, who cares. I feel like this whole societal expectation thing people get hung up on around people being a certain age doing certain things is BS. Do what will be fulfilling for you, no matter what age you are.
