  1. 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?
  2. Hey guys, I was just wondering for those who got interviews at McGill: how competitive does ones CV have to be? I just finished my first year of Cegep and will be applying next cycle to Mcgill + Francophone schools. Academically R score in 38-39 range at the moment, but a lot will depend on next semester (over 50% of it because second semester won’t count due to COVID-19). My biggest worry is that my CV won’t be competitive. Unfortunately, I was planning on working and volunteering this summer but everything has been cancelled since COVID-19. Will the fact that most of my commitments ended in 2019 affect my application? My most recent experience would be an award in 2019 and a job during summer 2019, all I would have since then are things in the hobbies section/education sections. Additionally, for the verifiers, does anyone know how that process works? Also how many items should one have to be competitive? thanks a lot!
  3. I was doing some research on how to build an strong application and stumbled upon some "red flags" posts. I have a general idea about it, but I was thinking if some of you could give me a few tips regarding this topic. I believe other med students can benefit from this discussion as well. The red flags I've seen more often are: 1. Low scores or previous failure (pretty straightforward) 2. Time since graduation > 5 years ("old candidates") 3. Interruptions in medical school (may be seen as inability to handle adversity) 4. Late or incomplete application (make the applicant seem unprepared or disorganized) 5. No clinical experience/letters of reccomendation (for IMGs, like myself. As some say "not obligatory, but important") (Those are not my opinions, they are a compilation of what I found in other discussions) Can anyone expand a little on this topic? Any other tips are welcome as well. My best regards!
  4. Hello, I just finished my CV for 2019-2020 Application and I was wondering if anyone experienced with what McGill is looking for and the McGill CV format would be available to review my CV and give me some tips/insights. Reply and I can DM you! I appreciate it! Thanks
  5. Bonjour! Je suis un collégien en dernière session qui a appliqué à McGill en pre-med (cote R>35) et j'ai quelques questions: Je me demandais combien de références minimum il est nécessaire de mettre dans le VERL qu'accompagne le CV. Dans le document d'information ils disent 4-5, mais vu que les CVs des cégépiens sont relativement plus courts que ceux qui détiennent un bac en raison des publications de recherches et des prix, je me demandais si il est possible d'en mettre moins. J'en ai plus que 5, mais cela revient à ma 2e question: y a-t-il des gens qui savent si ils contactent vraiment toutes les personnes? J'ai quelques bonnes références, mais les autres sont relativement peu bonnes et pourraient ne pas les intéresser. Merci!
  6. What exactly do first and second year students generally have on their resume/CV when applying for such programs? As they generally tend to have minimal work or lab experiences, but they just put their ECs? Moreover, how much of the likelihood of finding a position is based off your GPA. Would I have to maintain my GPA and ECs the way that they are to would I have to add something else into the mix?
  7. Hi everyone, What awards does one include on the CV if you don't have any other than things like scholarship, deans list, first class with distinction? I feel these are not worth taking up the space as academics are judged separately and all of these are academic awards. Any input is appreciated. Thank you!
  8. Hi! I know this might sound like a silly question but which Canadian medical schools focus the least on your extracurriculars?
  9. Instructions ask to make sure McGill Student ID appears on ALL the pages of CV. However, in the sample provided, it is only on the first page. Do I force McGill Student ID on Page 2 as well? It will mess up the format <<! Ensure your McGill identification number appears in the appropriate field on all pages>>
