  1. I did all this last summer and survived! It was a grind for sure but the job was too good to pass up for me and I don't regret the choice I made.
  2. I'm also not in med school but I grew up in Vancouver and did my undergrad at UBC. I'm sorry to hear about your negative experience in Vancouver!! I would say my science program at UBC was ~50% POC. I found most students who were first gen immigrants were able to find community at UBC and there were lots of cliques of folks who immigrated from the same/similar countries. There are lots of cultural clubs and such to facilitate this community-building. I personally didn't experience any exclusivity issues. The majority of my friends were also POC and I really appreciated that the div
  3. Yes, I registered and got a separate email with the actual zoom link.
  4. My interview is later in the day but the Zoom link says 6:30 am. Just want to confirm they just created one meeting for the full day? I should join at my scheduled time, not at 6:30 am, right? Thanks!
  5. This is kind of ridiculous tbh.... How hard is it to open a portal where we can schedule an interview time that works for us? Seems unfair to make it all this way and then be forced to forfeit a spot at either school because they refuse to reschedule the few applicants (I assume <5) who end up unlucky enough to have 2 interviews scheduled at the exact same time. Especially for 2 OMSAS schools who presumably should be communicating quite a bit over this process.
  6. Invite 11:44 EDT!! Very early alphabet last name. Felt pretty good about the interview but thought the questions were pretty generic and I wasn't really able to get creative/stand out. Guess it was enough! Felt like I bombed one follow up question (sat in silence for half the time).
  7. I totally agree. I literally just said the same thing again and again for 2.5 hours. Tbh disappointed because there are so many other valuable skills and competencies of a physician that weren't addressed at all because there were 5 stations on the same topic. Not sure how applicants are supposed to make themselves stand out with the questions this year.
  8. I was wondering if this was a problem with my wifi but I've never had any issues zooming before and my internet speed is quite good so I wonder if it was on the interviewers' end or if it was the interface? I had to ask many interviewers to repeat their f/ups and noticed a lot of lag/freezing/audio issues.
  9. I totally agree!! Struggled to put in personal stories or give creative answers.
  10. Are we allowed to talk about the questions/content?

  13. I don't know.... Had some minor tech issues (mostly lag/bad audio quality) and overall just felt like I was jittery/rambly for a lot of the questions. Not feeling great and can't stop thinking about the questions and things I could have said. Anyone else want to share their feelings or experience? Anyone currently in UBC med want to share how they felt after their interview? This is gonna be a long 3 months...
