  1. Can anyone recommend a service that helps prep for Dal's MMI or essay? I know the essay is different this year, but I'm still looking to improve my weak points from my last application. Thanks!

Please reac
  3. Hey everyone! I am applying to Dal this summer and planning on writing the MCAT. Anyone interested in meeting to chat about their application and/or studying for the MCAT?
  4. I've got a question about the Academic Explanations essay at UofT: I'm planning on applying this coming year but am concerned as I am not eligible for wGPA (I never took a full course load and instead took summer courses due to my chronic illness) and my current cGPA is 3.89.... all due to one calculus course I ended with a 70 in due to failing the final exam during an illness flare-up. Without that one course, my cGPA *would* have been 3.95. If I had been eligible for wGPA, I'd have a 4.00. I'm very concerned that despite having an otherwise strong application I will be disadvantage
  5. Hi there, any recent applicants able to shed some light on what specifically they are asking in the personal statement and on the word/character limit? Thanks!
  6. For the letter to the editor essay, do you guys know how much of formatting we are supposed to have in it? Features like name, address, phone, email, date, name of publication...
  7. I've finished my Top Tens for a little while now, but I'm having a hard time editing them. If anyone is available to help me proofread them and edit them that would be absolutely wonderful. I will gladly return the favour by buying you lunch if you're in Calgary, or if you'd prefer I can give you some feedback as well. Thanks!
  8. Im applying to both schools next year and I am wondering how to prepare what to expect for the critical skills test. The topic is a surprise, how are we to formulate an essay in one hour on it? If anybody has information about their experience and what I can expect from the prompt, I would greatly appreciate it.
  9. I'm confused about this. Are we supposed to integrate it into the essay where when we mention activity x we say "activity x (ABS item #3, verifier 2) has..."? Or do we add these things at like the start or end as like a title or footer type thing? Can anyone tell me how they formatted theirs and if that is considered correct? Do these words count towards word count? If so that sucks.... Really stressing because the application is due today.
  10. Hi, I am currently a first year student and I am interested in going to PA school in the future. I am currently taking an English class and we have an upcoming paper due where we are required interview a person who is currently in the profession we intend to explore. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in being interviewed about the PA profession for my essay. The interview will be a set list of questions regarding the career of a physician assistant. This interview can take place through e-mail or just through this forum. Listed below I have included the questions: 1. what do y
  11. 1.How have your life experiences to this point helped shape and prepare you for making decisions in situations of uncertainty or ambiguity? can someone please give me examples of uncertainty or ambiguity? not sure i understand what they mean by situations of uncertainty or ambiguity. the deadline is in two weeks and i havent even started for this question. i would really appreciate any help and i'd be eternally grateful
  12. I am aware that Toronto's admissions page says explicitly to pick one activity per ABS essay that outlines one or more of their clusters, but how specific does this one activity have to be? for example: if I picked volunteering in a research lab as my activity, can I include the awards/presentations/publications/whatever else related to that activity as well? or do i just have to talk about what i did in the lab? thank you for all your help! EDIT: also, how bad is it if my essays are no longer than 200 words (both ABS and brief personal essays)?
  13. Hey guys, new poster here! I'm just curious to know how other people interpret the word 'anticipate' as used in a context similar to the sentence below: 'Anticipating a career in medicine, I realize that sometimes I will have to make difficult choices' Though anticipating, by dictionary definition, includes both the meanings 'expecting' (which would sound kind of cocky here) and 'looking forward to' (which is closer to the intended meaning), I just want to see how most people (and by extension, ad coms) reading this might instinctively interpret it. Thoughts?
  14. Hello! I'm having a hard time getting to a point with my essays where I am happy with them, specifically the first essay is giving me some trouble. I don't really understand why they chose to ask this question and maybe some of you could offer some insight. The question is "Health care today combines both technical and personal aspects of care. Describe how you envision the balance of technology and compassion in physician-patient relationships?" I don't really understand how to make this personal or if it is appropriate to include personal stories that may relate. Also, is i
