  1. TIME STAMP: 10:40 Result: MTL admitted Pre-req GPA: 3.65 MCAT: 519 Feeling About MMI (please be mindful of NDA): Found it very fun and interesting, wanted to repeat it just for the experience lmfao. Year: 1st year post UG IP/OOP/International: IP Comments: Last year got waitlisted/rejected post-interview from other schools (no interview at McGill) so this is kinda nice
  2. Did you provide them with all the relevant documents during application?
  3. I think it would help to realize that Med schools in Canada are just ridiculously hard to get into because of the high number of people applying over the number of seats available. Your friend didn't "cheat" the race, he just chose not to run in the same exorbitantly overpacked track as you and other aspiring CANMED students. Your friend is essentially doing everyone here (incl. applicants and med school committees) a favor by not putting his name and further filling up that track. And as long there are residency spots limited to CANMED students, you shouldn't even worry about those offshore s
  4. anyone else like me haven't received an e-mail yet? Starting to think I wasn't even on the waitlist in the first place lmao
  5. check out the premed read it (can't spell the web here). It should already be out by now I believe
  6. godbless chief altho at this point I've accepted that I'm pretty much the last one in their waitlist lmao :'(
  7. everyone probably answered to their last week's email by Sunday, allowing the 2nd wave of waitlist offers to come out yesterday as opposed to today. Now if we knew how long this offer will last for (a week also maybe?) then one could have an idea of when to expect anymore bulk offers, aside from just singular offers here and there before the class if full
  8. First thing you gotta understand is that you shouldn't feel uncomfortable with interacting with women in this manner because as long as you are kind and respectful, it's actually quite flattering for them to have a guy take initiative and show interest in them. Worst case they won't reciprocate your interest in them back to you, yet that will leave you with someone who could end up being a good friend or simply a classmate that you are now acquainted with! So the next time you strike up a convo with a girl you find remotely interesting/attractive, since you will be starting med school thi
  9. welp, here goes another week of uncertainty. lmaoo
  10. All jokes aside, trying to find someone that you can build an intimate relationship is actually very similar to applying to med school. The process is long and filled with multiple rejections -- but all it takes it one of them to be the right fit for you for it to work. With that being, my actual actionable advice to you would be: 1) If you meet a girl even remotely attractive look-wise/personality-wise, offer to keep in touch with her, and then message her and see if she wants to go for a coffee/lunch with you ==> build it from there. Just make sure you remain open minded with your op
  11. Just flex that you got into a few CANMED school acceptances and let the rest happen like magic
  12. Med students (of all ppl) know best how competitive and difficult it is to get into Med, and that its common for people to require multiple application cycles to get in. I'm 99.9% sure she wouldn't give a damn or look down on you for not having gotten in. Don't let that insecurity come between your conversations with her and you should be set.
  13. Obviously the biggest differentiator is the 4 yr vs 3 yr program -- consider the implications of this. You will graduate a year earlier from McMaster, and this will require a more intense 3 years of Med School with minimal summer breaks. Having 4 yrs allows you to use the longer summers to carry out research or relax, among other activities. On the flip side, saving a year means a year less of schooling = a year extra of work and income. Of course, there is also an argument to be made that doing a 4 yrs programs gives you more time to adequately prepare for matching to a residency of your choi
  14. la plupart de tes intervieweurs risquent d'avoir un accent QC aussi, tkt
