  1. Nope! Although Joel is a good pal of mine. If you’re really curious PM me
  2. This is the same at the New Brunswick site if anyone is curious, except that the stethoscopes are blue, burgundy or black.
  3. https://medicine.dal.ca/departments/core-units/admissions/about/affirmative-action-policy.html This is all I could find actually, there's an email there and perhaps reach out and ask what the process might look like for you? At the minimum, you should be able to apply under the Affirmative Action policy, but I can't comment on the details!!
  4. Late to response, but I can confirm what Orlando said. So general NB applicants, I believe you apply in a similar way, but the assessment is done differently for indigenous NB applicants. I'm not familiar with the process, but this is what I've come to understand!
  5. I think the "anomalies" causing the delay this year include the high number of applicants, new interview process (despite there only being 5 questions, it may have been off-set for the record high applicants), re-doing admissions requirements, and the training involved with the new system. Just a guess though! I hope you all hear soon I'm going to put my bet on the 25th, but that's not based on anything
  6. It's just not feasible to go through each and every activity, and read the responses of each verifier for each applicant. It could be as high at 28 verifiers for some people (assuming you have a different verifier for each activity). Better to take a random sample, or to focus on activities that hold a lot of weight on the application. For example, a one off 30 hour activity might not be worth verifying, but an activity that totals 2500 hours might be more worthwhile verifying. Not sure if this is what they do, but I'm just speculating. My activities that were verified was an old j
  7. I believe they generally do email, and perhaps a phone call if they don’t respond within the allotted deadline
  8. Not all verifiers are contacted. I only had 2 when I applied, others had none
  9. Sorry to hear about the rejections everyone. If this is truly what you want, don't give up! Given that Dal recently changed their MCAT requirements, I imagine there's been a steep increase in applicants, and thus some stiff competition. Not to mention all the many ways the pandemic has affected our lives... Regardless, just being able to apply is such a privilege. Not many people can even get to this stage. Keep your head high!
  10. And it doesn’t get any better! I can empathize. When letters were delayed last year it felt like an eternity.
  11. With a pandemic, many things change and that can include the order. Best thing to do is remain calm and not jump to conclusions.
  12. Best advice I'ver ever heard/given in regards to choosing an undergrad is this: pick something you genuinely enjoy and are passionate about. Here's why: 1) Being in a program you enjoy will make you much more likely to work hard in school, and it will feel more effortless than it would if you forced yourself into a program you didn't enjoy. 2) Building off of 1, you'll be busy in other aspects of your life (working, keeping up with ECs, social life, etc.) and being in a program that you enjoy will make you far more likely to be satisfied with those areas of your life as well.
