  1. Hello Everyone! I am a pharmacist and have completed a Canadian hospital pharmacy residency. This was a year long paid position involving a variety of 4 week clinical rotations (ie. ICU, cardiology, psychiatry etc) as well as a research project. I am debating how best to enter this type of experience. It will end up in the employment section of course. I am just curious what people think about the following strategies: 1. One 2500+ hour entry covering the residency year 2. Divided into multiple sections in order to give better description of each (ie. ICU rotation 250 hours, etc
  2. Hello premeds! Hope you guys are staying well and safe. It's that time of year again. With application season starting, I wanted to offer some support to those getting busy with writing their applications. For some context, I'm a current med student who helped out a few re-applicants last year on their applications and they were accepted to multiple schools this year! Some general tips taken from my last year's post: Verbs > Adverbs: find verbs that highlight your accomplishments and responsibilities. Adverbs don't add much weight to a sentence and they take up your char
  3. Hey everyone, To those with a high NAQ, if you are comfortable with sharing, what did you put in your application? Particularly: -Long-term commitments? -Medical/health-related activities? -High performance activites? -Activites witth impressive results? (e.g. prevented company from losing $916,000,000 like Trump?) -Short but impressive activities? (e.g. 10-hour competition or something) -Research work? -Wording? Did you describe the activity, or build a story about your growth, or talk abotu facts and figures for accomplishments? -Breadth and filling out every section? -Uniqu
  4. Hi! New to this forum so excuse me if I am doing anything wrong! I am finishing up my UBC app, and I am thinking about including my experience with an eating disorder as a non-academic activity under "diversity of experiences." One of the examples listed in the help guide was "intense experience as a patient." My ED dictated my life for 4.5 years... I think experiencing/recovering from it really helped me develop a lot of courage, independence, and perseverance.....I'm from a small town where I would have been highly stigmatized basically ostracized if people knew about it, and there weren'
  5. Hey everyone, just curious about my extra-curriculars and what your opinions are as to how UBC's AdCom might see them. Thanks in advance for the input! Awards: 2 small entrance scholarships 3 high school bursaries research: directed studies (single semester research project, kind of like a half-honours) Honours thesis 3 poster presentations for my honours research, one at national conference, one university level, one department level Volunteering: assistant hockey coach for 10 yr olds for 1 year in gr 12 lab volunteer for 2 years doing genotyping and training new volunteer
  6. For people with two or more applications that did not unfortunately get in, did your NAQ score change significantly (+/- 4) with no change on your part from one cycle to another?
  7. I played Classical Piano for about 12 years before switching to jazz. I play in a quartet now (been doing so for about a year and a half), whereas when I played Classical music it was solo. Does this warrant creating two entries in Diversity of Experience instead of one? That's what I did last cycle, but my NAQ was pretty awful, lol.. so I'm wondering what everyone else thinks?
  8. Hello, I've gotten numerous messages on this topic and it's tough to reply to all of you (I want to, but I just can't, sorry!) Most of them are on the issue of NAQ score and how to improve them. To give a little context, I got rejected last year by UBC as an OOP, but I made the IP cut-off despite an average GPA and MCAT: GPA: 82.88 MCAT: 30 ECs: Lots of research, community work, and leadership AQ: 21.49 NAQ: 33.70 TFR: 55.19 I got a lot of messages as soon as I posted my stats asking what I wrote for my ECs and how I wrote them. Here are a few tips for you guys applying this
  9. I'm currently working on my application and I am quickly realizing that I do not have anywhere close to enough Non-Academic Activities to fill out all the spaces for the entire application. So far for Non-Academics I have: - 2/3 Leadership - 2/3 Service Ethic - 2/5 Capacity to Work with Others - 7/12 Diversity of Experience - 2/3 High Performance in an Area of Human Endeavor Are there any applicants from last year that can give some feedback on whether that is even close to enough? I know it also depends on grades, length/responsibility of non-academic commitments, work experience, etc. But
