  1. For anyone using Uworld, are you paying for it? Is there a free trial or something lol
  2. I'm struggling to decide whether to rank all the programs for my top choice specialty in the country first before family med programs vs family med programs in my province higher than out of province for my top specialty. I dont love FM but could probably be happy doing it and wouldn't have to go so far from my family and friends. Also I want to have more in my life than just my career so I'm not sure I want to move so far away from everyone I know. But also if I move I could do the specialty I really love... and hopefully I could move back? I'm so confused and there's only only few
  3. OMG I PRAY THIS IS TRUE about the MMIs, thank you for this!!!
  4. hi everyone, i'm going through carms right now and am super confused about my rank list in terms of both specialty and location. i'm finding it really hard to make an informed decision because i haven't had electives in one of the specialties i'm applying to and also because of the lack of visiting electives. i think i'd be happy anywhere but that's just based on my limited impression of programs from virtual interviews, info sessions, talking to residents, etc. but also want to know more about the transfer process just in case. does anyone know where i can find data on how many residents
  5. Not sure how it works but I hope this helps you feel less stressed: My undergrad transcript was pretty average overall but I had a TERRIBLE 2nd year, and I got an interview at the 1 program that asked me for it! They interview less than half of applicants so I wasn't ruled out bc of my UG transcript (which is def wayyy worse than most people's lol)
  6. Thanks for your reply, good luck with the rest of CaRMS! I am so glad you said this bc for some reason I always feel like everyone else is crushing 100% of every interview and I'm the only one who is unsure of how things are going. Maybe most of us feel this way!
  7. You're right, this is definitely true. Probably best not to worry about it and just do my best. Maybe I should be recording my practice sessions? But that makes me cringe LOL
  8. Very true! Thanks for your advice! Also is it normal to not have a single "perfect" interview? I don't think I've red flagged myself in any interviews, but in every interview it seems like I've had some questions/stations that went great and some that were subpar... is it still possible for me to match to those programs?
  9. Is it normal to not be able to tell if your interviews are going well? My first one I didn't feel was too bad, but I fumbled an MMI question or 2, and since then I've had some strong ones but maybe with 1-2 questions I wasn't expecting where my answers are a little less polished/I am rambling more, and then one which was absolutely awful (bc of how I did in the interview but also bad vibes I got from the program). Do all of your answers have to be 10/10 to be ranked highly by a program (for example, FM at UofT or Mac)? I haven't had a single perfect interview yet so I'm nervous, but
  10. thank you, this is really helpful! i didn't do exactly this in my first few interviews and i think i have a better idea of what to focus on now
  11. hi everyone, i've had several carms interviews in the past week and am so confused about how to integrate my knowledge of/interest in the program into my interviews if they don't ask me about this. is it absolutely necessary to "tie your answers back to the program"? particularly for FM interviews where they are so short and have a list of questions to get through? any advice is greatly appreciated! thank you!
  12. school interviewing at: UBC specialty: Peds current interview date: March 8 date would like to switch to: March 11, March 15 any additional notes:
  13. school interviewing at: U of T specialty: Family Medicine current interview date: March 10 6-9pm date would like to switch to: March 22 or 23 (or even 11!) Thank you so much!
  14. are people really that petty??? thanks for the heads up lol. i'm applying to peds so i hope no one is like this lol
