  1. No more than 10-12 or so at McGill as far as I know...
  2. Hey OP, regarding experiences the quality of them matters and I think you can say a lot about your work ethic with 3 jobs while maintaining an R-score as high as yours. It's a good idea to seek more opportunities, I would suggest things that align with your interests so you don't hate going there every time. Do not take on too much if you think your GPA will take a hit. I feel for you and have been in your shoes in the past, you can inbox me if you have more questions and I'm happy to talk to you more and look over your stuff.
  3. Y a rien qui va changer dans les spécialités et y a plein de places vides en med fam rurale que personne veut en général... J'imagine que l'augmentation des places en med c'est pas pour faire plus d'ophthalmos Ils rajoutent combien de places?
  4. Beaucoup des 3 ecoles appliquent juste pas a McGill ou au reste du Canada. T'auras pas de probleme a match a McGill ou ailleurs si tu es competitif.
  5. I don't think so, it's just that UdM students tend to want to stay. Not so many apply outside of QC. As to whether they favor Montreal over Trois-Rivieres, I highly doubt it. If there is an advantage it may just be related to getting letters and exposure to the PDs which are essentially all in Montreal as far as I know
  6. There's a pretty high chance of moving on to M1 from Med-P if you put in a minimal amount of work though. OP if you want to stay in Qc and are aiming for a competitive specialty I would go to UdM, they tend to favour their own and have a pretty good number of positions in many specialties that are more contingentees
  7. The deadline for letters was the 11:59PM the day prior to the CaRMS deadline ...
  8. Taking it now will affect your score for sure. This isn't like the MCAT where you can do well with good reasoning skills and is purely dependent on studying and rote memorization. Step 1 will become P/F, yes. But you can still take and kill Step 2, which will continue to be scored.
  9. The tendency to challenge authority if you don't agree with them doesn't make you right. As someone above suggested, consider working on your communication skills and also be humble. Being honest and being able to share your opinion are not weaknesses otherwise. TBH you might have trouble in any specialty, particularly in residency. Medicine and medical training is extremely hierarchical.
  10. They are all pretty useless and give no real edge Focus on being succinct and able to communicate a point efficiently
  11. Highly unlikely :p I am finding it really difficult to make a choice when my interest/passion does not seem to align with what I would like to get out of life outside of the hospital... Was it easy for you to choose?
