    Instagrammar got a reaction from Poloma in D-DAY 2019 — Discussion Thread   
    PST it seems rejections come out first around 8-9 am, waitlists are 10-11 am, and acceptances are around 1200. Gonna be a long day in Ontario for me.

    Yeah that grade is going to have a huge negative impact on your file. I would start applying to Caribbean schools...maybe consider Poland.

    Perhaps Lori Loughlin paid for her daughter to get into medical school so they’re being super thorough this year with vetting.

    Instagrammar reacted to Intrepid86 in Unique Situation   
    As someone who went abroad, matched back, finished residency, and is now a practicing physician, I can say that any bias in favor of leaving isn't as strong as you may think. Successful IMGs who studied at international schools will often say that their experiences were great and life changing, but most will stop short of directly recommending that anyone become an IMG. Even though I made it, I have never promoted this route as a good or even reasonable option, because it is neither. It is a high risk, high reward gamble, and that fact is not truly appreciated by those who don't fully know what's involved.

    Instagrammar reacted to blueciel in UofT Interview Invites/Regrets 2019   
    Time Stamp: April 3
    Results: Regrets
    wGPA: 3.95
    MCAT: 512 (128/128/128/128)
    ECs: Average; research, longterm volunteering, clubs, etc. 
    Essays: Worked on them for ~2 weeks. I thought they were okay back in October, but looking over them now, they suck. I think I got them edited by too many people and they ended up not being very personal. 
    References; Probably the more stronger part of my application. All 3 of my references have known for me quite awhile and really wanted me to succeed in this process. 
    Year: UG 4th year
    Geo: IP
    I'm just glad to FINALLY hear back and get some closure.

    Instagrammar got a reaction from thelostgrade12 in McGill vs U of T Life Sciences   
    Have you applied to other Universities and been accepted to their programs as well? Is there any particular reason you want to attend McGill or UofT? If it's purely based on international rank, you're in for a bad time. If you fell in love with the program, campus and city, then by all means choose a place where you see yourself being happiest. If school selection is based purely off international rank, I would reconsider your options. Don't get me wrong, UofT and McGill have amazing programs, but there are incredible programs at other places too including Mac LifeSci, Western Med Sci, Guelph Biomed, Queens Life Sci, etc.... every University in Ontario (and Canada) has a reputable science program and will get you where you need to be. 
    If you only have those two as options, and are ignoring other considerations (cost of living, distance from family, opportunities for involvement) I would go with McGill for an undergraduate degree.

    Not to be rude, but why ask this? You have a perfect GPA in last 2 years and a high MCAT that meets all schools' cut-offs.. You have the classic pre-med ECs: varsity team, research, undergrad clubs, awards- so you are all set.

    Instagrammar reacted to unduhkuvahbruddah in Schulich - Grad Degree Bonus Points??   
    Update: they replied to my email and said it was a mistake and there is no bonus for a grad degree. They updated their dentistry FAQ and somehow that question ended up in the medicine FAQ by mistake.
