  1. We are currently two fourth-year resident physicians with extensive experience in MMI interviews, MMI question development and MMI coaching. We remember how stressful applying to medical school and CARMS interviews can be, so we created a coaching service that can help you excel in your interview and maximize your chances of being accepted to medical school! During our coaching sessions, you will be provided with unique questions based on current events and actual experiences we have encountered as doctors, rather than just using the pre-existing question other services use. We allow for sessions to be recorded by you to be reviewed later, and provide typed and verbal feedback, as well as the option of a ranking using a standardized MMI Ranking Form. Furthermore, we provide insight on what you can add or change about your answer to achieve the top percentile of scores (10/10). As resident physicians, we can offer insight on how a physician would approach a difficult patient situation or the current issues affecting our healthcare system. Over the past few years as resident mentors for undergraduate medical students, we have assisted numerous people in achieving their goal of medical school acceptance and matching to their desired residency program! Here are a few testimonials from previous students: "My experience with MMI coaching was overwhelmingly positive. Most of you reading this likely want me to be candid, so yes I received an acceptance offer the first time I interviewed and I credit this in large part to my MMI coaching. Our sessions were professional, on time, flexible, and focused. I also found the feedback to be incredibly helpful and experienced continuous improvement with the practice questions and reading materials. The cost was very reasonable and honestly going into my MMI feeling confident that I could competently answer any question that I was presented with is more than I could have hoped for. I am absolutely going to reach out in preparation for my CARMS when the time comes." -A accepted to U of C “Working with my interview coach was a wonderfully positive MMI prep experience. She enabled me to build self-confidence for acting stations through mock scenarios while helping me become more articulate in responding to personal questions. She also provided me with extensive reading materials that helped grow my awareness and knowledge of current events while developing a more critical thought process around complex social issues. I only applied to one school this year that uses the MMI, but with her help, I'm happy to share I received an offer of admission and will be attending medical school in the fall! She was flexible, approachable, and super knowledgeable about medicine and the MMI process, so if you have an upcoming MMI, I would strongly recommend getting in touch with her.” -R, Accepted to McGill, Ottawa "Thank you so much for helping me prepare for interviews. Your feedback and guidance allowed me to perform well and truly showcase myself as a worthy candidate. I interviewed at University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and University of Toronto. I have received offers of admissions from all 3 schools! I will likely be staying at the U of A! Thank you so much for all your support throughout this challenging process, and I cannot wait to start medical school in August!" -R accepted to U of A, U of C and U of T “I had a FANTASTIC experience with my coach as a non-traditional applicant who finally had their first pair of interviews. The interviews that I was preparing for were very different in their time and content structure, but I felt confident for both sets of interviews after only a few sessions with her. I appreciated her constant focus and positive attitude during our 1+ hour virtual meetings, even amidst her busy clinical schedule. I felt very honoured to have her time and attention as an experienced clinician who was able to provide very specific and constructive feedback during all of our sessions. I think that her preparation significantly out-performed a much more expensive and popular interview prep company that I also trained with in my interview preparations -- my sessions with her were much more informative and tailored to my needs and the medical schools where I was going to be interviewed. I felt very lucky to have come across this interview prep on the PreMed101 forum and I have all of my fingers crossed that my coach's help will help me finally achieve admission into medical school! Regardless of the result, I can once again say that my experience with her was fantastic! Thanks very much! :)” -K "I've been accepted to Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador's medicine class starting in August. OMG!!!! The interview went amazing, and it was all because of your teachings. I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything that you've done for me over the summer/fall in preparation for the interviews. Without you, I can say with 100% certainty that I wouldn't have been able to make my dream of medical school a reality. I was also waitlisted at Dalhousie, with an excellent interview score. My interview this year was my strength, unlike other years where it was my weakness. I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!" -A accepted at Memorial "The coaching I received taught me not to just be intelligent, but to be distinctive and to bring intention into all of my actions and interactions. Your coaching helped me to identify my unique combination of strengths and how to bring them to the forefront. Interview coaching is an investment that will hold good for your entire career and lifetime." - N accepted to Psychiatry at uOttawa, IMG stream Description: Offering customized, private, one-on-one interview coaching via Zoom or your preferred online platform. Goal setting prior to your first session. Access to 100 unique MMI scenarios via sessions. MMI Interview Preparation Presentation provided to all clients outlining MMI theory, an organized approach for the 6 different types of MMI questions you will encounter including picture and acting stations, a crash course in medical ethics and links to high yield articles and information on current events, COVID, aboriginal health, homelessness, racism, sexism, technology and medicine, the Canadian Health Care System, mental health, transgender health, physician burnout, vaccine hesitancy and many more HIGH YIELD topics that you should review to be prepared for the MMI. Offering full-length mock MMI simulations with detailed feedback and scoring. Optional MMI scoring on a scale from 1-10 with each session. Rate: $95/hour Availability: Limited availability on evenings and weekends due to the demands of residency, coaching will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Disclaimers: We have signed a confidentiality agreement when we were MMI interviewers, and cannot disclose specific details regarding question content, but can provide insight on the interview process and what distinguishes excellent candidates from average ones. We will not be interviewing for the 2023 MMI as this prohibits you from assisting any potential candidates. Please email MDinterviewprep1@gmail.com if you are interested. Coaching will be offered on a first come first serve basis. Best of luck in the 2023 interviews to all candidates!
  2. Bonjour ! J'ai remarqué qu'il y avait beaucoup de "topics" pour suivre l'évolution dans différents programmes en santé, mais je n'ai rien trouvé par rapport à l'ergothérapie. Dès que certains d'entre nous recevrons des nouvelles (admissions, refus, liste d'attente..), ce serait cool qu'on laisse les informations ici pour le programme. Bonne chance à tous pour les admissions!!
  3. Hi! Is it bad to re-upload your CV? I am waiting on an answer from a verifier but I want to upload my documents now just to be safe. I might have to re-upload my CV closer to the deadline at 9pm, depending on what my verifier replies back to me. Should I wait before uploading my CV or can I just upload twice and they will only consider the latest version?
  4. I was a horrendous CEGEP student, and I failed something like 4(?) science classes. Average science R score was about 27 I think. A lot of reasons for this, but I don't think it's that relevant to discuss that. Currently I'm completing a BSc, and Im doing pretty well (3.8+ GPA at the moment) and I'm planning on applying for Fall 2023 provided by GPA holds up. I know that McGill no longer weights prerequisite grades and only a passing grade is required (also I spoke to admissions and they confirmed to me that this change was permanent for a number of reasons) but I'm wondering if anyone knows if there will be some kind of penalty attached to all those failed CEGEP classes? Or am I just being paranoid.
  5. Salut! Juste confirmer aux nouveaux admis dans les universités qui veulent faire une demande à l'UdeM. Vous allez compter dans la catégorie collégien et c'est confirmé. Voici comment l'UdeM a définit les candidats universitaires (ils l'ont changé pour le rendre plus clair): '' toute personne titulaire d'un DEC ou d'un diplôme équivalent et qui a suivi au moins 12 crédits universitaires avant le trimestre d'automne précédant l'année d'admission visée. " (avant ils disaient "en date de limite d'admission", maintenant c'est avant le trimestre d'automne précédant) L'année d'admission visée est 2021. Le trimestre d'automne précédant 2021 c'est l'automne 2020 (maintenant). Donc, il faut avoir suivi (passé) 12 crédits universitaires avant l'automne 2020 pour être un candidat universitaire. Donc, vous allez être dans la catégorie collégienne, ce qui veut aussi dire que l'automne 2020 ne comptera pas pour vos admissions, biensûr. Ça c'est une bonne nouvelle pour les candidats universitaires car vous n'allez pas avoir de compétition de plus (donc pour la majorité ça va être les mêmes candidats que 2020 moins les admis de cette année). C'est aussi bon pour les étudiants collégiens qui veulent se re-essayer en médecine avant d'être forcé de finir un bac. Et pour ceux qui viennent de graduer du cégep avec une cote R un peu faible, restez fort(e), votre temps va venir! Pour les universitaires: on attend toujours la réponse du SAR pour savoir si l'automne 2020 va compter pour nous. Donc, si jamais vous recevez une réponse confirmée, laissez nous savoir dans ce thread, c'est fait pour ça.
  6. When I scrolled through the R score requirements for McGill, it shows Core R score math/science. Does that mean the average of the r score of maths and science subjects must be equal to x amount? For example, the core r score math/science for bioengineering was 34.3 for 2020. Does that mean I need at least 34.3 for EVERY math/science subject of EACH semester or is it the average of the math/science subjects of the first 3 semesters? https://www.mcgill.ca/undergraduate-admissions/apply/requirements/quebec
  7. Salut! Est-ce que quelqu'un qui a déjà fait le bac sciences biomédicales pourrait me dire si l'indice de force est bon à Montréal? Je suis au courant pour celui de Laval, mais il n'y a pas de tableau d'étalon pour l'UdeM, donc j'aimerais savoir un GPA de 4,33 donne combien de cote r. Merci d'avance!
  8. Salluutt ! Puisque la COVID nous inquiète bcp et semble vraiment avoir impacté nos chances d'admission (du moins, pour plusieurs d'entre nous) je pensais qu'on pouvait partager nos stats pré-entrevues, juste pour avoir une idée du portrait des appliquants cette année! Voici le format que je propose, libre de modifier à votre guise Catégorie : (collégien vs uni) COTE R/ GPA pré-covid : COTE R / GPA post-covid ( si applicable) : Programme : (SN, profil..., SLA, pharma, etc....) CASPER impressions (si fait) : Commentaires : ?
  9. Bonjour, Bientôt, je devrais faire ma demande au cégep et je voudrais aller en Biotechnologies (Techniques de laboratoire) au Collège Ahunstic.Si vous avez déjà fait une demande pour ce programme à Ahuntsic et que vous avez été accepté, pourriez-vous me dire quelles notes il faut environ pour y rentrer ? Et si vous avez du temps, pourriez vous me donner des informations sur les cours, l’ambiance,les profs et la charge de travail ? Merci d’avance !
  10. Bonjour à tous! Étant étudiante en médecine vétérinaire et ayant appliqué moi-même 4 fois avant d'entrer dans ce merveilleux programme, j'ouvre un Forum de discussion pour les gens qui désire discuter de l'admission (Test Casper, notes, côte R, programmes d'université, etc.). Lorsque j'étais en processus pour mon admission, j'aurais aimé avoir un forum du genre! On ne lâche pas pour ceux qui travaillent fort afin d'entrer dans les programmes contingentés!
  11. When doing the academic workbook for McGill's application for FALL 2021 admission, what is the difference between the dentistry gpa calculated vs. the local gpa generated by the excel workbook? Anyone know what they look or how its viewed?
  12. Hey all, I'm looking to apply to U of T dentistry. I understand that U of T is able to drop an applicant's lowest year GPA provided that it is not their most recent year. My question is, my first year marks were not great at all, while my second year marks were high. Despite U of T saying they'll drop the lowest year (aka my first year), I can't help but have a fear that my first year GPA will affect my chances. I guess my question is, has anyone been admitted with a high GPA after their lowest year was dropped, despite that lowest year being quite low? I've looked everywhere but I was unable to find anyone in the same boat as me. I'm just so afraid that my first year mistakes will be here to haunt me for the rest of my life. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks, guys.
  13. Hi all, Christopher here from the Pluripotent Premed podcast, and creator of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca. After overwhelmingly positive feedback on 'Season 1' of the podcast that I co-host with a medical school classmate of mine, Ziad, we are back in the (virtual) studio and recording new weekly episodes for Season 2! If you haven't heard of Pluripotent Premed yet, feel free to check us out on any major podcasting platform (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.) or on our Facebook page. We are two medical students in Canada who host a completely free podcast that is designed to guide premed students through the premedical years.In Season 1, we focused on all aspects of the MCAT, med school interview, admissions process, CASPer, and much more. This season we have a couple of new series that will help guide you on your premed journey: 2020-2021 Admissions Cycle series - last year Ziad and I recorded a single episode that broke down each Canadian medical school and the requirements for admission, interlaced with stats from previous classes that provided insight into whether you are a 'competitive' applicant. This year we've decided to do it a little differently - we've invited a medical student from each of the 17 Canadian medical schools to come on a do a condensed 10-15 minute episode about their specific medical school. We will discuss with them the academic and non-academic admission requirements, the school's curriculum, and their personal experience as a student at the school. We hope that this format will provide a greater and more personal insight into each of the schools, and will allow listeners to seek out the specific episodes that highlight the schools that they are interested in. Alternative Background series - the purpose of this series is to bring on medical student guests who don't come from the typical premed background, in order to discuss their route to medicine. We had numerous listeners request a series like this, and we believe it will be helpful and provide hope for those listeners who don't fit that 'cookie cutter' premed applicant. So far we have episodes with a medical student who did an undergraduate degree in music with no science background, a student who did a dual business and science degree and how they balanced it, and a student who is pursuing an MD/PhD and what the admissions process looks like for that applicant stream. We intend to plan more episodes in this series based on requests from our listeners. −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−-−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−-−−−− Aside from the podcast project, feel free to check out my premed website UltimatePremedPackage.ca (again, totally free), which hosts a BUNCH of resources for the MCAT, med school interview, and a whole lot more. That's all for now - keep up with the hard work everyone!
  14. I have been hearing that all U of M looks at is GPA/MCAT/Casper. I have heard that they don't look at your ECs. Is this true?
  15. Hey all, I was wondering if there has been any recent updates regarding whether U of T Dentistry will be using Winter 2020 grades as part of the GPA calculation? As well, does anyone know whether the decision made for U of T dentistry be the same as U of T med or are the two completely separate? Stay safe!
  16. Bonjour à tous, je suis un étudiant de secondaire 4, mon objectif est d'aller au cégep Marianopolis dans le programme science de la nature, je veux connaître les notes requises pour ce cégep. Ce serait mieux si vous pouviez l'introduire en détail, merci.
  17. Bonjour, Je me demandais quel est le meilleur moyen afin d'augmenter ces notes pour rentrer en pharmacie pour les candidats universitaires ? Il y le programme de Science Bio pharmaceutique offert à Udem qui permet aussi d'avoir certains cours crédités pour Pharmacie mais il y a aussi le bac en Pharmacologie offert à l'université Sherbrooke qui semble intéressant… Quels sont vos avis ?
  18. Bonjour à tous! Les convocations aux entrevues arrivent à grands pas, alors j'ai décidé de créer ce thread pour répondre à toutes questions que vous pourriez avoir en lien avec la profession, les admissions ou même le parcours académique!
  19. Bonjour, Pensez-vous que l'annulation des entrevues au DMD à uLaval aura certains effets sur les gens admis? Croyez-vous qu'évaluer 60% la cote R et 40% le test Casper favorisera les gens ayant une CRC moins ou plus élevée? Je me demande vraiment si ce changement désavantagera une certaine population.
  20. Bonjour, Je suis étudiante à l’UdeM en kinésiologie. J’ai obtenue une CRC de 31,419. J’ai appliquée en DMD à udem et ulaval, même si j’ai presque aucune chance de me faire accepter. J’ai un GPA de 3,6 - 3,7 (je ne le sais pas encore) avec 12 crédits. Question 1 : Quelle est approximativement ma CRU, ET j’ai besoin d’un GPA de combien pour augmenter mes chances? Question 2: C'est quoi la CRU du dernier admis pour l'automne 2018 en DMD à ulaval et udem? Question 3: Si je reste en kin, je ne peux plus abandonner de cours si je n’ai pas de bonnes notes dans les premiers examens. Me conseillez-vous de changer pour un programme où je peux abandonner des cours (bio par exemple)? Merci guys!
  21. Allo tout le monde, jai mon bac en biologie et maintenant je suis à la 1ere année de kin et je me demandais comment l'évaluation de mon dossier va être faites? Est-ce que mon bac en biologie est considéré? Ou je suis considérée comme juste en kin? Est ce qu'ils me font une 2e CRU ou est ce quelle seras combinée?? HELP
  22. Salut tous le monde! J'ai une question bien simple. J'ai complété un bac en sciences biologiques et maintenant je commence un nouveau programme (kinésiologie) toujours dans le but de rentrer dans un programme contingenté (opto ou pharm). Ma question est dans quelle catégorie je me situe pour ma prochaine demande d'admission?? Dans la catégorie en cours de bac ou bac complété?? Merci!
  23. Bonjour, je vois que pour l’université de Montréal il est possible de faire 3 demandes d’admission pour des programmes contingentés. Est-ce qu’il est possible d’en faire autant pour l’université Laval? Merci!
  24. Bonjour tout le monde, Je me demandais si quelqu’un (ou quelqu’une hihi) avait des infos sur les listes d’attentes des années antérieures à partager, soit des données des listes à des dates précises par exemple, histoire de comparer ces données avec les listes de cette année et de peut-être réduire le stress des gens en attente de réponse! Personnellement, je ne crois pas que de se fier aux données des anciennes listes pour « prévoir » l’issu de cette année soit très fiable, mais ça vaut quand même la peine de regarder! Pour ma part, j’adore regarder les statistiques des admissions, je trouve ça apaisant (weird??). Alors si vous êtes concernés par ce message et avez des faits à partager, manifestez-vous! Vous aller faire plaisir à plusieurs personnes, j’en suis persuadé! Merci et bonne chance à tous! P.S.: J’ai trouvé l’image ci-jointe à quelque part sur le forum, ça permet de comparer avec la dernière vague pour Sherbrooke! P.S.S.: Il serait cool de vous voir (ceux qui le veulent bien sûr) analyser et tenter de prédire les résultats des admissions de cette année dans les commentaires. Peut-être que certains ont des dons cachés pour la voyance (un possible plan B)!
  25. Salut tout le monde ! Je suis une future étudiante de 3e année en médecine vétérinaire et j'espère que votre réponse d'admission sera positive ! Voici le lien du groupe Facebook de votre future promotion pour ceux et celles qui seront acceptés dans le programme : https://www.facebook.com/groups/837885843245483/?ref=group_header. Chaque année, des étudiants de 3e année s'occupent de vous encadrer dans votre admission et pour votre accueil à la Faculté dans les premières semaines ! Alice Paquette et moi-même serons sur ce groupe pour répondre à toutes vos questions par rapport à l'admission, au déménagement, à la rentrée, etc. Nous allons avoir les listes de classe officielles au fur et à mesure des admissions (à certaines reprises dans l'été), donc nous n'accepterons personne qui n'est pas sur cette liste ! Vous pouvez faire la demande dès que vous êtes acceptés, mais il est possible qu'il y ait un délai (nous partons les 2 en voyage et parfois nous n'aurons pas d'update de la liste de classe avant un certain temps). Merci d'être patient ! Je vous souhaite vraiment de rentrer cette année, c'est un programme vraiment super avec des gens passionnés ! J'espère vous voir à la rentrée ! Maude Brodeur
