    I like Dijon Mustard Yellow - best represents how 2020 has been so far

    We get to practice with stuff at school but I also got this kit to practice!

    Definitely not like actual-surgery level equipment but lots of materials included and you can use the silicone over and over again! There are so many good YouTube videos. I like to practice my sutures while I'm watching Netflix, mostly just to work on my grip strength and dexterity. Don't feel pressured to do this though, I do it because I find it a fun skill to practice like how some people knit I guess? Make sure you get outside and relax lots like everybody else has been saying too though!!!!

    If it’s anything like my school they’ll just give you some once you start. You’ll have plenty of time to practice in school - enjoy the sun for now

    dooogs reacted to bruh in What to do before I start med school   
    I’m trying to stay as active and healthy as possible. Eating healthy, hiking, biking, running. There are still things you can do while staying safe and practicing physical distancing. Although, I can understand this being harder if you live in Toronto or don’t have a car. I live in a small town with a lot of isolated green spaces in the local area so it makes it easy to be out safely. Knowing we start med school this September should give some motivation to get more fit and look our best y’know?

    Honestly, it's all b/c of COVID-19. Stuck inside the house - or limited options for outside activities. It's either netflix or doing stuff in "prep" for med. Part of me thinks maybe if I do some stuff now I can take some time off med stuff when travelling resumes. I had so much travel planned for this summer

    @CHG  Would we have any in-person activities in august? (besides possibly white coat)?  I am asking this because I'm wondering if I should get a place for august or september? Could avoid paying for august if we only have white coat
  16. Thanks

    Hey! I'm an oweek coordinator so might be able to contribute a bit. Schulich wants us to get back to class in person ASAP, so they're trying to secure PPE and other necessary materials and work out the details. First priority will be those parts of the curriculum that can't be delivered online very well. As soon as we can get back to in-person we will be!!!! 
    Oweek is looking at several options. Of course we want to be in person as much as you guys do but this might look like smaller group interactions instead of the typical 171 of us doing everything together. We're doing everything we can to make sure you guys get the experience and get to know each other just like we did, including the possibility of further integration when more restrictions are lifted! 
    honestly when it comes down to it it'll be the government and western deciding what the rules are and Schulich and Oweek will all have to work around that. We're going to be keeping you guys as up to date as possible throughout the summer on fb to hopefully alleviate some of the anxiety. 
    That being said plz continue collecting all the hearsay and conspiracy theories here and maybe I'll come steal the best ideas

    Hi all! Sorry if this sounds odd but I was wondering if you could advise where to buy clothes for medical school? Both female and male (asking for my friend as well).
    I had been looking at rw&co but looking for more options for a professional look but decently comfy

    OOP - received an offer as an older applicant as well (25 years old). I am so humbled by this. I did not expect it at all (3.83 GPA and the interview I thought was super repetitive - online). I am taking an in province offer instead though - to be close to friends and family. Although I very much respect Calgary's transparency!

    hey! I’m wondering this too and asked in another forum and basically got the answer that most if not all unspecified campus offers get their first choice!
