  1. Hi all, I mailed the documents (proof of citizenship, form where we accept offer, , deposit, etc.) last week and I haven’t received a confirmation of anything. Has anyone else received a confirmation email? Kinda paranoid about it since tomorrow is the 28th. Would appreciate any responses!
  2. Thank you so much for the detailed answer, I really appreciate it! When you mention travelling during 4th year for electives, is that limited to those 5 sites or can students travel to other provinces for those electives?
  3. Hi all, in the acceptance offer to the DMNB campus, it says that during Med 3 and Med 4, we'll be based at one of 5 teaching sites and that the assigned location is determined through a selection process in Med 2. The website, however, says that we rotate between the 5 teaching sites. Any DMNB students who know how clerkship works? Are you assigned to one specific location during the 2 years? Also, I'm wondering how they select who goes where? Thank you in advance!
  4. Hi all! Does anyone know of a case where an NS resident was allowed to attend the NB campus instead of the Halifax one? I know OOP are sometimes placed in NB, but I'm wondering if NS can ask to attend the NB campus? Would really appreciate any insight!
  5. If my question is inappropriate/not allowed, please let me know and I'll delete it! I had my interview for the French stream yesterday. I was wondering, do the interviewers not give you a score until they have seen all candidates for that day (or cycle) or do you immediately get a score? Thanks!
  6. Hi all! When answering an ethical question, I typically look at both sides of the issue and talk about the pros/cons for each side. This is how I would answer for an MMI question where I know I have 8 min to talk about my answer. I realize there is not one "right" format for ethical questions but my issue is, should I use a different format in a panel interview? I feel like with the current format I use, it may be too long for a panel so I'm kind of worried about that. I'd appreciate any feedback!
  7. Hi, does anyone know what dates the interviews are happening this year?
  8. hey everyone! I'm really hoping to get some input/advice on what I should do. When applying, I hesitated between adding a specific activity to my ABS or just leaving it out. It has to do with a personal experience. Before entering it, I really contemplated whether I would be able to talk about this activity if I were ever to receive an interview invite and be asked about it. Because of recent events, I realized that I definitely will not be able to talk about it in front of a panel if I get an interview. I desperately want to remove it but I'm not sure if that's something that's po
  9. Thank you all so much! I was freaking out about this but definitely less stressed now haha
  10. I sent out my email request to the referees. Under the "Referees" tab, one of them says received. The other 2 say "Email sent" is that okay or is it supposed to also say "Received" by 4:30 September 15th?
  11. Hey all, I’m first-time applicant and I’m confused about the OMSAS deadlines. To be specific, I’m confused about the LOR October 1st deadline. So our references complete everything online and then scan the letter as a PDF. So does that mean that they have until October 1st to submit everything or that it must be RECEIVED by that day (so for example if they were mailing the letter, they need to have it mailed a few business days before so that it is received on Oct 1st)? Also, i know this is going to sound stupid but if they end up doing everything online for the reference, will OMSAS rece
  12. I misunderstood your initial question, my bad!! I thought you were asking about whether it really is better to have at least 1 non-academic and that’s what I was referring to. So to clarify: I did NOT read anywhere that it’s best to have 2 academic, I just read that at least 1 should be non-academic. Don’t worry about it!! You’ve got this!
  13. So for the OMSAS applications, they explicitly tell us not to copy and paste our responses from a word document onto the application form because they may receive a weird text on their end. For the Dal application, does anyone know if we can just copy and paste from a Word document onto the application site? Sorry for the stupid question, I'm just paranoid haha
