  1. I typed my notes into OneNote until about half way through second year when I bought an iPad. I did find my note taking to be a lot more efficient and easy with the tablet than typing. I like to type my notes into one big Word doc, then study from that, but it was bulky to carry around a binder of paper, so I transitioned to using my Apple Pencil to write on my electronic notes and it was a lot easier for bringing with me on the go! And I could access my notes from my phone if I ever had downtime in a clinic during clerkship, which was nice too.
  2. PSA: residency programs are also starting to take CASPer scores during applications for residency.
  3. It should be enough time! There are plenty of "practice question" threads online, print one out, get someone to give you one to talk about, and practice talking about it for 5-8 minutes with anyone who will listen!
  4. I think if your social media accounts are professional accounts, and not personal accounts, it's fine. I follow preceptors on Twitter where I keep it medicine-related and professional, but I wouldn't add them on Facebook, where I share my recipes, have people wish me Happy Birthday, my grandmother writes on my wall, etc. lol.
  5. Additionally - Apple typically has a "Back to School" event in July/August where they offer some sort of incentive to buy a new MacBook from them (I got a pair of Beats by Dre for free with my MacBook purchase in 2017).
  6. I ended up buying the cheapest ipad available (in addition to my 15" macbook pro) during med 2 and it was awesome to be able to jot notes down with the apple pencil during lectures - much quicker/easier to just draw on the slides than trying to type the relevant notes beside the slides... honestly if you will use both, its worth having both, IMO.
  7. Dal's tentative return date has been pushed until June 8. Finishing cores upon return, but no details about electives timeline, etc. yet.
  8. I did a summer of research after first year, and 5 weeks of travel after second year.
  9. I probably wouldn't envy the classes ahead who are having their education significantly disrupted by this pandemic...
  10. Dalhousie has suspended clerkship activities as of 5PM today - return date of at least April 14.
