  1. MS1 at uOttawa here. Congratulations on both acceptances!

  2. I got in with a 503 (off the waitlist though as an OPP)
  3. I personally would go with Queens b/c I am not a fan of the gunner environment at U of T (not saying it will for sure be like that but I've heard stories from friends who go there). I am also not a fan of the weekly/biweekly/triweekly low stake tests at U of T. They are always held on Monday so you're whole weekend is wasted studying. However, I am not sure how Queens does it (Ottawa has one midterm and one final which I love). You can always go to U of T for residency or spend a summer there doing research if you really wanted to get that experience. I LOVE Toronto as a city and envisio
  4. Also, I think it really sucks how Mac has electives rotations sprinkled in with your core rotations so your first rotation ever in clerkship could be the one your gunning for and you have 0 idea what you're doing. Other schools have "core/mandatory" rotations first (in third year) and then in 4th year you do your electives in the field you wish to pursue (better for getting references). At the same time, a three year program def has it's benefits. You finish one year early (with much less debt) and I heard there is less stress (testing at Mac is a bit more chill). However, I definitely c

  6. Definitely not! Doing school in a city where you want to match will be helpful because you are able to make connections and network; however, that doesn't mean you can't network with professionals in other cities. Pick the school that best aligns with your personality and where you see yourself living. Do not pick a school because you are already thinking of residency. That's still 4+ years away!
  7. Last year first WL offers were offered today! Fingers crossed for everyone
  8. MS1 at uOttawa here! Absolutely love it here and I am happy to answer any questions about the program or city. Congratulations to those who got offers and to those who got waitlisted keep your head up because the waitlist moves a lot at Ottawa
  9. Hey everyone, My friend was really fortunate to receive an offer to both U of T and U of O medicine but is having trouble deciding between the two schools. His personality and laid back lifestyle aligns more with Ottawa but he's attracted to U of T because they have a MD/MBA program (https://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/MastersPrograms/JointDegrees/MDMBA). You complete your MBA after 3rd year MD (take a year off med) and then finish it during your 4th year (elective year) which sounds really hectic. What do you guys think?
  10. How competitive is anesthesia to match into? Should one be doing research starting in first year?
  11. I got accepted to Vancouver campus with a 124 in cars and overall score of 503 as an OPP.
