  1. I just want to wish everyone good luck!!! For those who get an interview, work your butt of to prepare!! For those who don't get to interview, continue to work your butt off to show the Canadian med school you are tough! For everyone, don't let responses from medical schools define you sense of self-worth! I know it is difficult not to attach your worth to your dream career, especially when you feel like you work harder than 99% of the people that get in. Just know you matter and a big part of he process is luck. Good luck everyone
  2. Invite/Rejection: Rejection Time Stamp: 12:25 pm Location: IP Stream: English cGPA: 3.97 Current year: UG completed; in MPH program ECs: Lots of research (paid and volunteer), 2 pubs (one 1st author), a good amount of scholarships/awards, 3 jobs at time of application (2 hospital jobs and 1 research; 400-2000 hours each), 2 volunteer placements at time of application (health promotion and hospital volunteering with vulnerable populations), no clubs, and other things. Just a wide variety of experiences. Casper and Snapshot: Completed the snapshot. Felt pretty good about everything. Can t
  3. They typically send rejects first and then invites, or vice versa, on the same day. It says on their website you will not get feedback on your application.
  4. Literally could be anytime lol. Hang in there and don't forget to take care of yourself!
  5. I am pretty sure it is a legit waitlist. I have a friend who got an interview invite off the waitlist 2 or 3 years ago
  6. Since this is a very specific question, you may have to email them about it. Unless someone has had the same experience as you and has gotten that information, anything else anyone says would be speculation. My guess is that they would include the completed years of your second undergrad and then fill the "3 year" requirement by taking from your first undergrad. Since you are in your 2nd year now, and if you are applying the current cycle (2020-2021) then they would not count your second year as it is not complete yet.
  7. You would have to ask admissions that. I don't think anyone here could give you an accurate answer.
  8. Hi! It is definitely a stressful time. I was in your shoes about a year ago. I am still applying to medical school, but I decided to do a Master's in Public Health! The program I am taking is 4 consecutive terms with a placement. I am really enjoying it so far and it definitely adds to your application. Also, you will be able yo get a good job in the mean time while you apply to medical schools. After I finished my undergrad, I took the MCAT again so my MCAT would be valid for 5 years and I wouldn't have to relearn everything a couple of years after I graduated. That is what I did, so I hope i
  9. I recently graduated from uOttawa in biomed and I really enjoyed the program. After the first 2 years you have a lot of electives so you can take courses you are really interested in. I was able to take a lot of physiology courses. Engineering courses are typically tougher and harder to get higher grades in, but I do have friends who took mechanical engineering at uOttawa and are now in medical school. Getting a job with just a biomed degree is pretty hard, but you can always do a masters or something after (e.g. MPH, epidemiology, etc) if you decide medical school is not in your cards/decide
  10. I think you should be okay, but again, no one really knows with Queen's.
