  1. Thanks a bunch for the input! I kind of felt the same way, 8 entries seemed like overkill - i'll just work a lot on the wording to make sure I get the best description possible in 350 characters Thanks again!
  2. Hello Everyone! I am a pharmacist and have completed a Canadian hospital pharmacy residency. This was a year long paid position involving a variety of 4 week clinical rotations (ie. ICU, cardiology, psychiatry etc) as well as a research project. I am debating how best to enter this type of experience. It will end up in the employment section of course. I am just curious what people think about the following strategies: 1. One 2500+ hour entry covering the residency year 2. Divided into multiple sections in order to give better description of each (ie. ICU rotation 250 hours, etc
  3. Thanks so much for the input! that makes a lot of sense. Starting to think that ill keep it to just one entry - as it already has another entry for the research I did as part of the program. I might consider adding one of my more meaningful rotations into the "other" section if I have room at the end. Thanks again everyone
  4. Hi everyone, I am currently a hospital pharmacist and have completed a clinical pharmacy residency. This was a year long program that included about 8 different clinical rotations (ie. emerg, ICU, psychiatry etc) usually x 4 weeks each. My question is, what would be the best way to enter this? I could do it as a single entry (2500+ hours) or break it down into 8ish different entries (ie. emerg rotation x 250hr etc). Any advice or input would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
  5. As far as I know, 2 employer verifiers contacted so far. Also had one verifier contacted from the rural training section.
  6. 9-VR, 9-PS, 10-BS, Q looking forward to the next MCAT battle. not.
  7. I thought for the most part it was pretty average in difficulty, although I did find the PS harder than the other sections.
  8. Well, I didn't notice an MCAT thread for this date, but to all the people writing tomorrow...best of luck. Can't wait to get it over with.
  9. Exciting way to end the match! I am sad Uruguay couldn't pull it off. I think I have been supporting Uruguay ever since I watched the movie 'Alive'.
  10. Anyone watching Paraguay vs Spain right now? Crazy stuff going on here.
  11. A 3.5 cGPA really isn't that bad, not ideal, but not game ending. You have a 3.8 in your last year so I would say go for another undergrad year, get 3.8 or so and apply the schools in Ontario that look at last/best 2 yrs in addition to those in Alberta. Make sure you meet the MCAT cutoffs for the those Ontario schools. good luck
  12. Pittsburgh in 7 Phil in 6 Van in 6 Detroit in 5
  13. Uvic is one of the schools that does not care about this. What's strange is that I had the option of taking a second degree in Biology...and my first degree is Microbiology. I thought that was pretty weird since quite a few courses overlap...
