  1. It is an appropriate item to place in that section and it only helps if you did win an award from it. Otherwise, it still shows involvement and commitment in research. Include it if you have space
  2. You would be able to pay a deposit to one school then change your mind when you get a later acceptance to a different school (but likely forfeit the earlier deposit if it wasn't refundable). The statement is mostly to remind you to be courteous and notify schools asap if you've changed your mind regarding attendance, so that they can move on with their waitlist and let someone else in.
  3. It's more like a research course, where you talk about the process of research, do some paper reviews etc. You're matched to a researcher with a small group of other students, based on interest. You meet 4 times in the first year and 2 times in Med 2, and it's really just a couple hours of commitment since it's not an actual project in a lab. Not sure what you're referring to for "lab course", but we have histology and anatomy labs as learning environments (not research). I'm not familiar with APP but by the name of it it sounds like small group learning, which we do have approximat
  4. Really not many do. The recommendation is that you're better off using your time if not on studies then on other activities that would enhance your CV or wellbeing. Depending on what kind of job you have, consider if it is worth your precious time. Med school can be a lot to handle, and if you find that manageable, you can find ways to make it super fun. If it's due to finances, you shouldn't have to worry about a job
  5. Yup! Most banks just need your acceptance letter, and you'll later need to provide proof of enrolment. Some branches want that proof upfront, but you can definitely start shopping
  6. It's counted towards your credits but not towards your GPA. There might be limits to how many P/F courses you have per semester/year depending on the school. If you just have one, you'll have no problems.
  7. It's my understanding that they're the same thing. Are you asking how to put them in your CV (in which case you could state the amounts even if the studentship doesn't explicitly say it online) or which is more competitive for something?
  8. Before they assign you to a place they ask for language proficiency and ability to commute, but of course not everyone will get ideal matches. It's more than likely that you'll encounter patients of both languages even if you're at a hospital that serves a predominant English/French population. That said, it's not crucial to know French for the purpose of this course component, but it does mean you'll get less out of the patient interactions or their conversations with your preceptor. It's helpful to know basic French just to make the patient comfortable with small talk, and it's also an
  9. Where did you end up choosing, Comprehensible? That seems like you're doing a great job on spendings, at least relatively to me haha. But I agree, money is meant to be spent to gain happiness, within reason. (I'm not saying happiness is only obtained from money either lol)
  10. If it's like last year, it was in late April and it'll be a secret group where you get added in
  11. You have to accept it by stated deadline. You can withdraw later if you get into Ontario but will lose your deposit.
  12. be careful on your drive amazing how you broke it down into a simple scenario that just needs the result input yet there's still so much uncertainty!
  13. Rooting for good news before you get to that point! Luckily Minerva tends to update pretty early in the morning. Good luck to everyone, and no matter how anyone feels about their results, feel free to reach out to me if you need someone to talk to
  14. The essay is used for interview invites, once you met the cutoffs for GPA, MCAT, Casper. For final assessment, GPA+MCAT (25%), Essay+CV (35%), and interview (40%) are assessed competitively. 5% is unknown factors lol.
  15. Yeah, I would say that's accurate, at least in my case and at this school. Some schools went on and on with follow-up questions for personal ones, but it could've been the people on panel and nothing to do with the school.
  16. Yes, my panel was super friendly with me. My questions seemed to be mostly following the script so it wasn't too much that they were personally interested in knowing more, although sometimes that was the case (context-specific questions)
  17. Last year someone asked during the post-interview debriefing and we were told that no stations are omitted. Lol that could throw you off for a second. I'm starting to recognize them from our simulation sessions and the experience gradually feels less authentic
  18. I think they were Tuesday to Friday. Reminder that it's completely normal to feel confused, dissatisfied, uncertain, and/or discouraged about a station. There is no correlation in how someone feels about their performance and their actual score. Good luck to all of you
  19. Depends on the station. It will be clear to you from the prompt.
  20. You will be briefed on this right before starting your interview, but yes it's something like 5 minute then 2 minute for follow-up. No warning of the follow-up question or end of station
  21. Is it too late to sign up for billeting? Their students are awesome, much love for offering their couch
  22. Lol I meant to dig through the threads, not my posts Voila: http://forums.premed101.com/topic/98771-does-anyone-know-the-structure-of-the-mmi-vs-panel-part-of-the-interview/ http://forums.premed101.com/topic/98357-when-are-interview-invitesrejections-coming-out/?page=8
  23. I wanna warn you that as with any panel, the surprise might be that you get a pretty unfriendly panel by instruction, and just know that if that does happen, it has nothing to do with you. Keep calm and carry on
  24. My verifiers usually told me when they were contacted by schools, but I did not have my verifiers contacted by Dal afaik So don't feel left out if you haven't heard anything
