  1. Can be anywhere from 30 to 72 hours per week, but keep in mind that you need lots of time to read and study as well. I have been averaging around 40 per week, but it will get more intense in other rotations. There are some weeks that are high pressure, but in general it's very doable and you have lots of time to do what you need! https://www.mcgill.ca/ugme/files/ugme/2019-05-12_ugme_workload_policy_v2_3_2.pdf
  2. Hey, you should find out by email in August if you will receive a merit-based entrance scholarship, and there is nothing to do until then. As for the needs-based scholarships, apply to that as soon as you can through the Minerva portal.
  3. I just want to make sure you know, to be exempt from renewing your prereqs so you can apply in the regular applicant pool, I think you must submit a request for exemption before you apply, not wait until you send in your CV. Check the details beforehand. Good luck!
  4. Have you applied for this cycle? Then you definitely should know your category. If you are planning to apply for a future cycle, you indeed may not be NTP if you have retaken your pre-requisites in your current certificate program, or even possibly if you have not ( see here, look at the 7th bullet point on that page). That is my understanding. Please note however that I may be mistaken
  5. A good portion of our class is seriously francophone, and they seem to be doing great!
  6. I don't know if this will help, but I do think that the following is a major problems for many interviewees: It is super important to verbalize your complete thought process throughout each scenario as you interact with the actors. Again, I will repeat, although it is awkward and unnatural, you must talk out all of the things that you are thinking in your head which drive your responses to the scenarios, as this is an important window for the evaluators to judge whether or not you have understood/empathized/interacted properly as it may be fit. I used this myself in the MMIs, and I think that
  7. They do not know anything about you at all, except for the one station which consists of "standard" interview questions (if they will do that this year as they have in the past few years), and even there I do not think they can see the entire file, only certain parts of it.
  8. Yes, looking forward to seeing you guys as well! Invites go out tomorrow! Best of luck!
  9. It certainly is true for in province applicants, although I understand they decide each year if they will respond and send out the rankings or not, as they are not obligated to do so. I believe a rejected applicant has to email the admissions office to request the rankings, who may then send it out sometime in the summer.
  10. You seem to have answered your own question! If it helps, I recommend combining the less striking experiences into one entry. That way you get a lot more in but without wasting valuable space. You can format the combined entries as you like, write in all the dates and a general heading, and then put in one line or bullet point for each experience. Hope this helps! Best of luck!
  11. It's fine. I wrote stuff like that and got in.
  12. Curious as well! Very! But I respect the cyber anonymity.... One thing I'll say, I am super impressed so far and I think we have a really awesome cohort, everyone is so real and also fun!
  13. I don't know, but would imagine they've all been awarded. I mean, school pretty much began already
