  1. I'm MS1 and I also have an interview tab for 2020-2021 cycle. Good luck everyone!!! You all deserve to be in medicine and i'm sure you'll get there, don't give up hope!!!
  2. Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone was able to share any of their spreadsheets for choosing a specialty? I'm not sure how to start compiling my pros vs cons now that I'm starting to connect with residents and gain insight into the different residency choices. Thanks so much!
  3. Just checking that we didn't need a criminal records check at this time? My friend in nursing had to get one done, and it made me wonder if thats something we needed to submit already #momentofpanic
  4. Thanks so much!! I guess I've only given it the "3 business days" as stated in their email before I started thinking that I'd sone something wrong aha
  5. Hey! I submitted my documentation to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC last week, and have not gotten any confirmation or change in document status. Just wondering how long it took for everyones notarized documents to show up as accepted on their account, or if anyone received a confirmation email? Thanks so much!
  6. Just FYI for those in Vancouver. Kamran Aleem at Scotiabank helped me with my LOC and he was really really helpful! I had a ton of questions, and he answered everything really clearly, and had lots of good suggestions for the future.
  7. My MCAT was a 517 with a 128 in CARS, if I remember correctly! My ECs included 3 publications (1 1st author, 1 2nd author), 10 conference presentations, 5 years of research work (including my Masters thesis), international sports competitions, hospital volunteer work, TA jobs, etc. I did a lot of rewrites on my entries to make them describe how I felt and what I learnt.
  8. I did my undergraduate degree over 5 years because I was working full time and could only take 4 courses per term. I had an academic explanation for some lower grades in second year. I also completed a masters and took a few GPA boosting undergraduate classes after graduating from my undergrad. I was accepted this year with a GPA in the low 80s and extensive ECs that definitely carried my score. I don't think that the time over which my schooling spanned had any affect on my acceptance, but the ECs I gained during the process definitely did. If I were you, I would take some GPA boosters to try
  9. Also just wondering... Does anyone know when we find out about entrance scholarships, or the Doctors of BC scholarship? Now that I'm thinking about tuition costs lol
  10. I've been taking advantage of the research done by our predecessors and peers on the LOC forum thread. I am going to go with Scotiabank, and have been in contact with an extremely helpful representative from my local branch. I've been wanting to switch banks for a long time so I will be able to open new chequing/savings accounts with Scoita at the time of getting approved for my LOC. I wanted to get the process rolling early because I don't know what my eligibility will be for any grants, bursaries, or student loans... And I cannot afford the tuition with what is currently in my bank account!
  11. Thanks for alerting us of this! I wanted to apply for my LOC aha Mine has also become available, and I previously had a UBC CWL and student number.
  12. I know one person that was accepted to a different site, and then was accepted off the waitlist to VFMP on the second round offers. In case that helps anyone in their analysis of the process!
  13. Oh that could explain it. I am also faculty of medicine staff. Looks like the second year class will be planning some open air events for us (in line with provincial health guidelines)! I can't wait to meet everyone!
  14. Anyone with a CWL already can check entrada for updates about our cohort and general information about medical school in 2020. I have not received any emails, though.
