  1. I was accepted to both ottawa and IMP. I did my undergrad in ottawa and decided to go to the IMP. Message me
  2. You've highlighted a common misconception. Distributed site students are not disadvantaged in terms of matching to specialties. We've matched to neurosurg, plastics, derm, you name it. I think there is rather something inherent about the people who choose the smaller sites that have them choose to apply to family medicine in higher proportions. On the other hand, a lot of VFMP students wish to stay in large cities and a traditional Family Med practice is becoming unfeasible in large cities (especially Vancouver), so they apply to specialties. Personally, I'm an IMP gunning for a small com
  3. I see a lot of fundraisers where med students bike some hundreds of kilometres to fundraise for, let's say, kid's cancer, and I'm wondering if there are any running/jogging equivalents? I think it would be fun and motivating to tie my running practice with raising funds for charity Please reach out if you know of any such fundraisers already up and going!
  4. Congrats everyone!! 2nd year IMP here. I'm happy to answer questions about the IMP or UBC in general if you send me a PM
  5. Huge shoutout to Kevin and Melissa for their hundreds of hours of work on this video!! You've made the class of 2023 proud!
  6. I am from BC and did my undergrad in Ottawa, and I chose UBC over Ottawa for med. It ultimately came down to the fact I want to be in BC for residency and in the long term. The fact that I can see my family more often wasn't really a factor in my decision, it was all based on location and where "home" is to me. I chose UBC even despite having to move away and probably lose a wonderful relationship with my significant other in Ottawa.
  7. Posting for stats: Accepted to CNFS off the waitlist today, I declined the offer. Best of luck to those on the waitlist
  8. Result: Waitlisted CNFS (good waitlist it looks like?) ***** Edit: Accepted off the waitlist on June 3rd; declined the offer ****** GPA: 3.97 ish Casper: a shit show as usual, felt the same as last year. Much harder in french than in english. ECs: Unique and diverse Interview: Some asshole on my panel was super rude, he was on his phone during my interview and looked super unhappy with my answers and how long I was taking to answer their questions. He psyched me out unfortunately and I lost my cool, I was super stressed out by him. Instructors are told not to push applica
  9. Result: Rejected GPA: 3.97 ish MCAT: 131/127/131/132 (521) ECs: Unique and diverse Essays: Felt good about them, had them proofread by multiple people. Spent about a week on them. Interview: Wasn't nervous at all, thought at least 2 stations went great and two stations went so-so. I thought this interview went the best of all of mine since the interviewers gave me good non-verbal feedback and I thought I answered well. I may have said something that got me red flagged? Who knows! Year: 4th year UG Geography: OOP
  10. Result: Accepted GPA: 3.97 ish MCAT: 131/127/131/132 (521) ECs: Unique and diverse Interview: Hardest interview I've ever done by far. MMI was brutal, questions were super complex and the acting stations were batshit crazy. One of the follow up questions was so convoluted I didn't even understand it; I answered the wrong question... The format was super robotic, awkward, and cold. Panel: a deep dive into my personal life story trying to figure me out, like my true intentions, what I'm trying to show off and what I'm trying to hide. Asked me where I applied and where I inter
  11. I also haven't gotten a reply for my email for PAPL. Haven't sent in my money yet tho
  12. This is on the SOLUS, not the MedTech portal for med students, right?
  13. I can't remember my username and password... is our username our 6 digit OMSAS number?
