  13. Hi all, Christopher here from the Pluripotent Premed podcast, and creator of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca. After overwhelmingly positive feedback on 'Season 1' of the podcast that I co-host with a medical school classmate of mine, Ziad, we are back in the (virtual) studio and recording new weekly episodes for Season 2! If you haven't heard of Pluripotent Premed yet, feel free to check us out on any major podcasting platform (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.) or on our Facebook page. We are two medical students in Canada who host a completely free podcast that is designed to guide premed s
  14. This is a project that myself (Christopher) and a classmate of mine (Ziad) started last September. We've had a lot of positive feedback from people who listen, so I wanted to share it with you here once more. It's a totally free resource and we have two episodes dedicated to the medical school interview; what you should be doing to prepare, what to expect on the day, etc. Please feel free to check us out on Facebook, or listen on any major platform (Apple Music, Spotify, Google Podcasts), and I'm happy to answer any specific questions too if you have them, just shoot me a message her

  16. Hi all! My name is Christopher and I am the author of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca which I know a few of you have found to be a useful resource for your premed journey. This summer a classmate and I have been busy working on a new podcast called Pluripotent Premed which we intent to act as an audio guide for navigating the premed years as a Canadian applicant. We dive into all topics related to the MCAT, med school interview, extracurriculars, and more. We will also be interviewing classmates of ours who are got into med from alternative backgrounds (e.g. arts, nursing, other careers) and
  17. I remember last year when I was waiting to hear back, I obssessed over things like admissions statistics for previous years. I thought some of you might find this interesting - I've attached the admissions statistics for my class, the Class of 2022. It covers: Applicant pool Seat distribution (SWOMEN / non-SWOMEN / Indigenous) Gender Highest degrees of admitted students Academic metrics (GPA and MCAT) Age Residence University attended previously AdmissionStatistics_Medicine_Classof2022.pdf
  18. Letter of Intent is much bigger in the states, and I don't know if they're completely necessary here, but I sent one anyway because it definitely can't hurt your chances. I sent a short email the day of my interview to the general point of contact for admissions, simply saying that I really enjoyed having the opportunity to interview at the school, and asking if they could pass on my thanks to my interviewers for their time. Then, a week later, I again contacted the general point of contact for admissions with another email, this time with a Letter of Intent attached. The adm
  19. Title pretty much says it all. I'm a MS1 at Schulich, and last year I made a website with all my MCAT resources and all my interview resources too. I'm guessing if you're reading this you've already done the MCAT, but you might find my interview prep materials useful. You can find it all here - https://ultimatepremedpackage.ca/interviewing/ Please let me know if you have any questions! Of course, I can't tell you what questions they asked me, etc., but I can give general information about the day or whatever. I might see some of you for your interview day, but if not - good luc
  20. Hi all, I got accepted to med school in Canada this year first time applying, and since then I've been working on a massive premed package that includes all the Khan Academy (KA) notes (complete), supplemented with a personal spin to make things easy. The package also includes my schedule, my activity log, a score predictor, 100 helpful reference documents with mnemonics and graphics of common topics, formulas, interview prep, cars tips ethics... everything that got me from premed to admitted, and now I'm passing it on to you. You can find it all here: UltimatePremedPackage.ca I hope
  21. Result: Accepted, London campus Timestamp: 11:22 am (UTC-4:00, Atlantic) on May 8th, 2018 2YGPA: 3.97 MCAT: 519 391 (130/130/131/128) ECs: ~100 hours clinical volunteering, ~300 hours clinical employment, lots of sports, zero research Interview: Strong beginning and end but felt a little weak in the middle.

  22. Great, thank you for the information everyone!
  23. Reviving this thread just to confirm that I understand properly. My home province is Nova Scotia. If I attended medical school in Ontario, I would still be able to complete my residency back in Nova Scotia if I so wished, correct? I wouldn't face any major disadvantages for training outside of my home province? Thank you in advance
  24. Oh yeah that's bizarre, they seem to have removed it from their website. Luckily I have it downloaded. I can't attach it here because it exceeds the max file size, let me get back to you when I figure out a way to upload it. EDIT: Let me know if this link works: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cFL_QLhKsLjXHfwz0oNiLjD5WLc7Ss7M/view?usp=sharing
