  1. I wrote the LMCC back in Jan 2021. I took notes on obs, peds, ethics/public health, and psych from Toronto Notes, First Aid, and online med ed. I only read through this document to study for these sections. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AYmy0vbNcuxXM3ZT1APTNIPKj81f8fgI/view?usp=sharing For IM and surg, I read Petsana's and did a few questions on Canada Q Bank (which was not the best tbh). Also did a few practice exams. They were the highest yield, but pretty expensive. I studied 3 hours a day for 3 weeks, which was overkill. Two weeks would have been sufficient.
  2. Hey guys! There is wait list movement for IP applicants today! Some of my friends got in.
  3. An update on my application - I just declined in favour of another school. I hope that moves the wait list a bit and good luck to everyone!!
  4. I just accepted my offer to the Vancouver campus! So psyched to be a part of the program and meet everyone! Since I'm an out of province applicant, I'm a little bit unfamiliar with the housing situation for medical students in Vancouver. Would you recommend an apartment or house? Yes/no roommates? Closer to the hospital or the UBC campus? Any recommendations or suggestions about housing would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Result: Waitlisted wGPA: 4.00 MCAT: 130 CARS Interview: I thought it went fairly well, except for two stations.

PM for more details I will hopefully remove myself from the waitlist once I hear about other schools. Good luck to everyone this round!
  8. Did the admissions committee specifically say when they were going to release results? In the past it's ranged from May 13 - May 15, so I'm thinking it'll be in the next few days but does anyone have a specific date? Thanks!
