  1. There should be some administrative system in place for med students to arrange research positions right? Compared to undergrad where cold emailing was necessary
  2. How could I overcome the fact that McMaster doesn't have a training program for derm? I wouldn't be opposed to doing research in Toronto if it came down to it.
  3. Entering med school I'm considering a wide number of specialties, both competitive and non-competitive, but I've questions mainly about the competitive ones, since those need to be planned earlier, especially from a 3-year program. -How do Mac students do sufficient research to match to programs like derm and plastics without summers off? -This might be stupid, but do clinical research projects exist in competitive fields like the above mentioned? Or all they all bench
  4. I'm entering med school this fall and want to switch my family physician. I'm curious as to how others in the healthcare field (med students, residents, nurses, practicing physicians etc.) select their family doc. The field is saturated, and not every practicing family doc is amazing. Is there some way of using the fact that you're in healthcare to your advantage, to make the process easier? And also, what are the conversations like? Do you feel like conversations with your family doc are a bit more conversational and less didactic, when they find out you're in healthcare?
  5. I originally came onto premed101 because of the helpful information from the many intelligent and experienced users that post here. But honestly, I don't think I'll be frequenting this site as much anymore, in large part because of the austere and baseless neuroticism that's seemed so common here as of late, as evidenced by the button fiasco (which was completely incorrect), and now this. Honestly, think about what you're saying for a second. You're expecting qualities that may be associated with voyeurism to be picked up at an MMI?. Each interviewer gets 8 minutes to evaluate the candid
  6. Picking at a probably over-asked question here, but what are your thoughts about the 3 year curriculum, and would it be possible to do a fourth year to increase odds of matching to a competitive specialty?
  7. With school starting in August, how likely is it that the first few months are gonna be online?
  8. got into mac. I'm trembling. I didn't have button
  9. can anyone else just not mentally picture themselves getting accepted? like i have decent stats and I don't think my interviews went poorly but I just cannot picture a scenario in my head in which I get accepted lol, everytime I picture the results email it's just so much easier to imagine a rejection
  10. but that's exactly it though. It's strong because it's being skewed that way. You could present evidence for anything if you selectively filter enough information out. There's correlation, but You could make a correlation between literally anything, like the classic example of ice cream correlating with drowning incidents. People with the button want to believe it leads to acceptance, and they do all sorts of mental gymnastics to validate their beliefs. They share their "findings" on the forums, and others with the button believe it too, not because it's deductively true, but because they
  11. notice how pretty much everyone who's convinced that button = offer are people who have the button? confirmation. bias.
  12. I was thinking more hunger games style, but like the opposite of that
  13. imagine if they did the lottery on a live stream, one at a time.
  14. RIP to the person ranked 101st on the list who might've gotten a 79.4 in a course instead of a 79.5 or missed one question on CARS bringing them down from a 130 to a 129
