  1. Ooo okay so specific rank-able sites do count as "programs" when they say top 3 programs. Interesting! Thank you
  2. This is a silly question but I have always wondered, when they talk about "top 3" programs, do they mean for example Toronto family, UBC family, Ottawa family or would top three be if you match within say UBC family - surrey site, UBC family - chilliwack site, UBC family - victoria site (which you rank separately)
  3. are people just getting email updates or is the OAS updating too?
  4. Thank you everyone for the insight! Follow up question, do you know the limitations of specificity, i.e. if a patient comes in with fever, vomiting and abdominal pain, could I say blood work, or should I specify CBC + Diff or even more specific like WBC? (Similarly writing Chem 7 vs electrolytes vs specifically Na/K)
  5. Bit confused on how the CDM section is scored, does anyone have any insight to this?
  6. Uppers years just recommended writing it, even with little studying majority of people pass as the fail rate for CMGs is ~2%. Im sure with what you have done already is more than average
  7. Does anyone know if we can still add Mcmaster FM sites particularly rural (I never submitted the rural addendum at the first deadline)
  8. I haven't either, but I don't think anyone has got rejections either ... so probably just going to be radio silence until March 3rd
  9. Appreciate it! Apparently some schools outline on their website they do not want to be contacted about this so I will need to do some more research, but I will give it a try!
  10. There have been a few sites which have sent out e-mails for interviews and although I have not been firmly rejected, it seems pretty apparent that further invites are not going to be released. I have heard through the grapevine that people in the past have e-mailed schools and asking for an interview, but I have never heard it directly from someone who has done it. I am not sure what people think in general? And who you even e-mail and what the e-mail would say. Is it a short e-mail expressing interest in the program, asking for an interview if there is space. Or would it be a longer almost ps

  12. Unfortunately no. I don't have an exact breakdown, but the second round of WL offers will be much smaller than the first, and after that its very minimal to no movement as people in the second round of WL offers generally do not have other offers to fall back on. The odd person may get in if someone defers etc, but after tomorrow, its a pretty high chance you will not get off the waitlist (again doesnt mean impossible but being realistic)
  13. asides from anatomy and histo labs (which are roughly once a week), and a few random interprofessional sessions, all lectures in second year are at vgh
  14. It has been said on other posts, and I personally go to UBC so my insight may not be valued, but COVID will be affecting all schools. I recognize there is some concern regarding Mac/Calgary specifically given they are three year programs but your first year is primarily lecture based regardless. By the time you can enter clinical space, there will likely be guidelines set in place so that you can do so, but at a mitigated risk. Honestly, while I know its devastating to have your first year of medical school affected in such a way, COVID is impacting the upper years more as they have not been a
