  1. It definitely does depend on the scenario that you are placed in. However, the interview is your chance to show who you genuinely are which generally means being informal and real like PhD2MD said!
  2. From the Queen's UGME website: "Successful applicants are reviewed and ranked by the Admissions Committee and offers are made based on a ranked list. The rank order list is comprised of applicant scores from the Sketch, Letters of Reference and Interview Scores. " As Neurophilic mentioned, outside of admissions, no one really knows the specifics
  3. YESSSS Egg congrats can't wait to meet you!
  4. Thanks for the tips, very helpful. Thankfully our relationship spans 7 years at this point so I'm sure I can give a few solid examples That's awesome, I just wasn't sure if it was appropriate since technically I don't have the degree yet.
  5. Thanks for the response, I appreciate it I am an incoming 2022 M.D Candidate, I also have an H.BSc. I may just include the prior for simplicity. The purpose of the letter is to be used in a professional portfolio attesting to mentorship and teaching competency.
  6. Hey everyone, So I received a request to write a teaching/mentorship reference letter for one of my long-time supervisors who I really look up to! I have never written a LOR, thought id have a huge white beard at that point. I had two questions I hope someone can help me with: 1) Is there a general outline someone can link me to for writing reference letters? Should I go as personal as possible or try to tone back? 2) Is it appropriate to use M.D Candidate under my signature or is that silly?
  7. Your GPA is competitive at 3.92 for 2yrGPA and your ECs seem stellar. The only thing holding you back would probably be your MCAT score.
  8. This was definitely the case for me. Speaking to a Med 2 briefly on the phone for 10 mins ended up easing my nerves so much. I felt like my approach was much more genuine because of it.
  9. Definitely have to second everything they had to say. I am turning 25 right before med school starts and can absolutely relate! You have to take a second to realize how objectively amazing all that you've accomplished so far is!! Getting through the challenges of our lives is how we build the strong characters that hopefully will make us great physicians If you ever need a person to talk to feel free to message!!
  10. Hey guys, Ill be accepting my offer to Queen's today and releasing my position at Dal, im not sure how long it takes the WL to move though. Good luck I know how bad the waitlist is but keep your heads up
  11. Thank you soooo much , im over the moon right now!
  12. Result: ACCEPTED!!!!!! Timestamp: 8:45AM GPA: 3.53 cGPA / 3.96 wGPA MCAT: 515 ECs: Diverse/Unique feel free to PM me Interviews: I had two interviews this cycle. The fact that this was my second interview really primed me for this one. I felt like the MMI was shaky but I stuck with all my answers and the panel was so friendly and supportive. I felt like I was in a movie the whole time I was at Queen's, loved talking to all the M1's Year: Graduated HBSc last year
