  2. I think you should get by with a decent interview! Do remember that this year, we had significantly fewer stations so the MMI didn't serve as much of a differentiating factor (leading to a very high admissions average and MCAT). Try your best at the interview and you'll do well
  3. try this maybe? https://medicine.usask.ca/documents/ugme/admission/admissions-statistics-5-year-summary.pdf
  4. As long as you completed your coursework in 4 years you're fine. Many students work for a couple years before they apply to Med school at USask so taking two years off should also be fine!
  5. Hey there, This post is a little old but I personally love watching Violin MD, KharmaMedic and Ali Abdaal. They are all so inspirational and informative!
  6. I remember a couple years ago when I talked to the admissions office regarding the same issue they said I cannot exceed 54 c.u.s in 100 level classes. I am not sure if it has changed since then or if it is specific to my degree program. For what it's worth, I was in Phys-Pharm
  7. Thank you all for your responses! I have decided to not go for the program as I value the clinical side of medicine more than the administration side of it and there doesn't seem to be a disadvantage against having it!
  8. Do you guys think doing an MBA would be beneficial in the world of medicine? My school offers an MD/MBA program that lets me defer my entrance and do a year-long MBA degree instead. I am just not sure if that would be worth it in the long run
  9. Result: Accepted Site Location: Saskatoon (1st choice) Time Stamp: 15/05/2020 - 8:40 PST GPA: >90 MCAT Score: 517 Location: IP Degree: last year of UG Interview: I felt good coming out of it though I struggled with one station. The interviewers were all super nice!! I am so excited to be starting this journey !! Congrats to everyone accepted!
  10. I remember the office stating at some point that they wont be revealing your waitlist rank at all, even if you email them
  11. The latest email from USask states that we might still have labs and other activities, just that the classes will be online. I guess it might be more manageable because labs typically do have fewer people? That said, the details are still being hashed out and we wont know for sure till end of May but I really hope they don't cancel the program
  12. Now that all the exams are done, the 15th just seems further away
  13. I am not sure if you can review your file, but i think you can send the correct info over to the admissions office and they may update it for you. Although I really wouldn't worry about not having a third referee contacted as most people I know only had two checks.
  14. Hey so this happened to me too yesterday and I started freaking out but from what I have heard @Bambi is absolutely right. Idk if this works in our favour but it doesn't work against you at least
  15. A friend of mine told me about it first. Then I checked the admissions package and it states that the "applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by May 31st" This wasn't a recent change as I have the printed version of the admissions package from September. Idk if the date the same in the previous years' admission packages as well. Maybe its just a final final date for when decisions will be out?
