  1. Hi everyone!! What is the end date we should be putting down if the activity is still ongoing? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi all! I've been overthinking who to pick as my 3rd reference and I've wasted so much time debating what to do and I realise I need to send it out asap! I'd appreciate any insight! A little bit about me...I was a student, TA, RA, lab manager and currently doing a research project all with the same professor, and that's one of my references. While I know she would give me a really solid reference, I feel limited in my references because I feel most people have these (or similar) experiences spread across multiple people but most of my experiences were with her. My 2nd reference is a strong reference for a volunteer position (non-medical setting, I founded & direct a children's program at church). Now my dilemma: Option A: Grad student in the lab - The Grad student observed me work as an RA and grow in this position to become the lab manager, he was the lead TA for the course I was TA-ing, we've worked closely in the past 2 years, he's observed how I work in a team setting (more often than my prof), he's sort of the"middle management" between the prof and I, and he cares about my future goals - BUT, I worry this might come across as redundant, or even a "red flag" that I have two people addressing my work for the same positions or that it looks like I don't have anyone else to talk about me. Option B: Volunteer Co-ordinator at hospital - I moved away from the city where the hospital was, so it has been over a year since I volunteered there. I remember her being overall satisfied with my work and liking me, but she did not really observe me "in action" so doesn't know me too well and honestly probably doesn't really care/ isn't too enthusiastic about completing this. - BUT, it is in a medical setting and might be "safer" if option B is redundant/concerning Thank you SO much for any help with this! I really appreciate any insight. tl;dr: strong (but might be seen redundant/red flag) reference from Grad student who's mentored me and worked closely with me vs weak generic reference from volunteer coordinator?
  3. Hey guys, I had a question about the USask med application; it requires you to list the high schools you have attended, but the questions that follow only actually pertain to Canadian High Schools. I completed my grade 9 and 10 in another country but I did grade 11 and 12 here in SK, and graduated from high school here. My question is would I even bother putting my previous school down, or would I leave it and just put the high school that I graduated from? Thanks in advance!
  4. 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 character count. Be specific! Use numbers, names, places - anything that solidifies your experience and provides some context. Specifics stick in the reviewer's brain more than vague and wishy-washy statements. Pick your most important responsibilities from each activity - use the characters you have to highlight the most impactful accomplishments rather than making a list of everything you did. If you have room, talk about the impact it had on you or the community (this will depend on what activity you are describing). I'll be offering one-on-one help to a few people over the summer so feel free to reach out. I wish you all the best of luck in coming application year!
  5. Hi all, I am applying to medical schools this year and I will most certainly need help with essays for schools like UofT, and OMSAS ABS list and statements. Here is my history: - This will be my third time applying. The first time I applied my CARS was really low, and I was below the cut-offs for most schools - Currently doing my master's - Graduated from UofT in 2019 with a 3.9+ cGPA - 514 MCAT (127 CARS) - ECs: Club leadership roles, volunteering in hospitals, sports, Awards, and some more Note: I am also going to apply to US schools and probably the Caribbeans.
