  2. Hey Johnboy, incoming MS1 here. I'm also looking into MOTP. I need to get more concrete details from the recruiting folks, but based on my conversations with a few past, and current MOTP/MMTP students, it varies depending on the needs of the military at that time. There's a few residencies highlighted on the recruiting website that are more in demand, and could be covered; emergency medicine, orthopedics, anasthesiology, psychiatry, PHPM.. I believe they also fund +1s in Emerg'. I think the general process is, you finish FM and work as a GD-MO (General Duties Medical Officer - Aka Fa
  3. Hey everyone - chiming in here. My friend and I are in the same boat - he emailed admissions, and they mentioned that if you have nothing to update since you last submitted your transcripts (i.e. you graduated prior to applying), there's no need to submit another set of transcripts.

  6. Ain't no party like a waitlist party! Waitlisted here as well =)
  7. Yeah that's odd - If one is a Quebec resident and is admitted to a medical undergrad program in Ontario, would you even be able to transfer residency? Or would it be like most other undergrads where you're not eligible for residency in your province of study unless you're working X amount of hours/not engaged in full-time studies?
  8. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience - shout out to the UBC Med students and staff who helped create an organized and welcoming environment. It was fun getting a chance to chat and meet some of the diverse interviewees. Also, anecdotally, speaking to a few people that have interviewed elsewhere, they said that UBC was one of the more pleasant MMI circuits they've done. (Also, how gorgeous is that life sciences center? Yeesh!) I spent some time meditating/exercising that morning, and walked into it feeling oddly calm, which was nice (I'm hoping I was able to relay at least a little of th
