  1. Hi everyone Im from out west and Im trying to put together my rank list for some Ontario schools. I have some friends in Toronto who were able to tell me more about the city. But I was wondering if anyone who is in London or Kingston or Ottawa for medical school can share some pros and cons about their city? My interviews didn't say much about the cities and Im having a hard time ranking them. Thank you
  2. I really doubt it's factored into the selection at all, but this is only my guess
  3. No this is incorrect. Take a simplified example: Applicants: You, Jim, Bob, Lino. Jim, Bob, and Lino ranked Competitive Program A first, and you decide to rank Competitive Program B first. Competitive Program A has 1 spot. They rank: 1) Jim, 2) Bob, 3) you, 4) Lino. Jim gets the spot. Competitive Program B has 1 spot. They rank: 1) Bob, 2) You, 3) Lino, 4) Jim. Bob will still get the spot even though you ranked it first, and Bob ranked it second.
  4. You will never jeopardize a chance at a program because you rank it lower. For example: if you rank Program A #2 vs #3, your chances for Program A will be the same in both those situations, and you will always get that spot in Program A over another applicant if your file score was better (unless you get one of your higher ranked programs)
  5. This really sucks that this happened to you, especially since you anticipated it being closed file so you did not prepare for such question However, there is no rule against this, and I think it's actually often asked. In fact, in my parallel speciality interview I was asked a question like this yesterday. If you have more family interviews I would maybe prepare your response to these type of questions. That really sucks though that they told you it was closed file
  6. I haven't heard either, so I think we're good
  7. I hope I'm not competing for the same speciality as you
  8. Large programs like IM probably read through applications extremely quickly, and these differences may not stand out when you skim.
  9. Does anyone know if we can trade IM interviews after we sign up tomorrow?
