  1. It seems like your friend is quite interested in business/MBA. At uOttawa, I would say that (so far) I don't really see any opportunities to pursue business-related things here during your MD. We have a Finance in Medicine interest group and a few lectures here and there but nothing crazy. So going to UofT may give your friend an advantage to really explore their interest in business because they'd be able to network + meet others students who are interested in the same thing through the MBA/MD program. I think Ottawa is good in terms of being a "big city" with a "small town feel" and eve
  2. OMG YES. Even if you are the SECOND TO LAST AUTHOR PUT IT. Publishing is not easy. The peer-review process is a tough one. Being on a publication means that you have contributed to the field and existing literature and it serves as a validation of your work.
  3. Yes people do I know someone (who was accepted!!) that made it off the interview waitlist last year. One thing to keep in mind is that the last cycle wasn't affected by COVID and so interviews were in-person.
  4. I can only speak from the Ontario perspective and I think you should definitely look into Queen's and Western! They look at your best/last two years for GPA, so your 1st and 2nd year grades would literally be irrelevant. Your two year GPA+strong MCAT+ECs would make you a competitive applicant for both schools. Queen's admissions is a bit of a blackbox but Western's MCAT cut-off for the previous cycle was BB 126, CP 127, CARS 127 (they didn't look at PS) and GPA cut-off was 3.7. FYI you wouldn't be disadvantaged at Queen's and Western for being from Alberta, they do not have a q
  5. Hey guys, has anyone been able to sign up for the Part 2 of the BLS Interim course in Ottawa?? I cannot find any in Ottawa and I'm moving there this weekend!
  6. What do you mean by Western is big on surgery? Like a lot of their grads match into surgery? Or that their surgery residencies are good programs?
  7. Does anyone know if it's possible to contact Chantal through phone instead of e-mail?
  8. Sorry for the confusion, my waitlist email was created at 7:39 am and my acceptance off of the waitlist email was after 11:47 am! Hope I didn't add any unnecessary stress ahhh my bad if my post was confusing!!
  9. I got it a bit after 11:47! It seems to be rolling, I hope this helps
  10. Got off the waitlist guys! My gpa is 3.95 and my waitlist email was created at 7:39 am. This thread has been so instrumental in keeping me sane, I cannot believe the amount of support we have provided for each other through the interwebz. I love you guys T_T I hope you all get in <3
  11. I think it's a continuation as well because if it was a new bin then 7:39 am people should have 4.0 GPAs but people seem to be around 3.95 GPAs, which makes sense because the people at 7:37 am have 3.97-3.96 GPAs.
  12. If med doesn't work out then y'all should work for the FBI. Neuroticism does amazing things sometimes
  13. Your references will most certainly not hate you The fact that you got an interview is an amazing accomplishment on its own, and I am sure they will support you because you're SO close! You even got good waitlisted! And you never know about this year either, it's way too early to tell... don't give up!
