  1. Hey, I just finished my MScPT degree in December and will be starting at U of A Med this August! In 2016, I applied to both med and physio after my undergrad, and only got into physio. I decided to do it, and thought maybe I would find a passion for it, but going through my PT degree (and working in the hospital the last 6 months) has made me more sure than ever that medicine was what I wanted. I will say that I think my experience as a PT will make me a much better doctor than if I had gotten into medicine right away. It has taught me a lot about how I want to treat patients and ot
  2. Just received an offer off of the waitlist (June 7th, 2:40 pm) and will be declining for U of A. So there is at least one more offer that will be going out!! Good luck everybody and to the people that don't get in this year, keep fighting! Took me 3 cycles to get in and I got 5 acceptances this year so please don't give up if this is the dream for you!
  3. Hey, I am in the same situation this year (was accepted to U of A, Toronto, McMaster, and Ottawa). I am from Calgary and I ended up choosing U of A. The biggest influence for me, was that everyone I talked to in the medical profession told me to choose the city that I would most likely want to do residency and end up living in. They said you build a lot of connections and references that will help you in the future during your clerkship rotations and electives. For me, that meant staying in Alberta as I want to end up in Alberta since all my family is here. For you, it sounds like that mi
  4. Really excited to be able to post this to a few different threads... This is my third cycle applying to medical schools across Canada. The first time (2016) I was rejected from 6 schools post-interview, the second time I was waitlisted but never got off the waitlist. I then took a year off from applying to graduate from my Physiotherapy degree and work for a bit to save up money and gain experience. AND I FINALLY RECEIVED MY FIRST ACCEPTANCE THIS YEAR (4 acceptances, 1 waitlist). I am still in shock, this process has filled me with more self-doubt than anything else in my life, and there were

  8. I am seeing offers on OMSAS to all 3 schools I interviewed for (Ottawa, McMaster, Toronto) so I am a bit skeptical that it is true. Especially since this is my third cycle applying and my track record is not great. However, if by some crazy chance it is real, it is SERIOUSLY A MIRACLE.
  9. Long, long time lurker... and first time poster! This is my third cycle applying to medical schools across Canada.

I am still in shock, this process has filled me with more self-doubt than anything else in my life, and there were so many times where I questioned if I was
