  1. Hey all! I'm one of the co-hosts of the 'Pluripotent Premed' podcast, a podcast designed to help premedical students navigate and conquer the premed years. Our latest project is the 'Medical School Spotlight' series, which brings on current medical students from each of the 17 Canadian Medical Schools to talk about the admissions requirements, curriculum, student life, and experiences at their medical school. For University of Ottawa Medical School, we were happy to welcome on 2nd year med student Abdullah Haroon! You can listen on any of the major podcasting p

  3. Hey there, as a future Pre-Med student I am aware extracurriculars are very important. But what exactly counts/looks good on your application? I'm no stranger to volunteering as I have volunteered at numerous shelters, hospitals, etc. But are medical schools looking for something "extraordinary" or are my casual weekly involvments in the hospitals/non-profit organizations enough... do I need to show leadership and actually manage, lead, or win an award/get an LOR in something lol. If possible, list down some ECs that you have done/enjoyed to give me a little idea on what options are out there!
  4. I'm sure I'm asking the same general questions that have been asked a million times, and I'm still a few years away from even thinking about applying to med school but I'm really starting to consider what my next steps should be. I'm in my last year of a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Psychology. It will have taken me approx. 5.5 years to complete my degree by the time I'm finished (I've had to work a LOT during my degree to support family members who were struggling). Due to a family loss, my first year GPA was awful (1.85 on a 4.3 scale, or something like that). However, I've had a
  5. Hey everyone, for four of my top tens, I don't have a verifier listed. These were incredibly personal experiences of mine that only involved family. This means that I left the verifiers blank for four of these statements, and I'm not sure how this would impact my application. If they have questions or concerns about my top tens, will they contact me about them? I'm just worried that I might get red flagged for lying even though I told the truth on my application. I also wrote a top ten where I spoke about my hobby in drawing. I didn't verify this either, but I did provide a link to my onl
  6. So I worked in the lab for 4 months this summer, and its the same lab that I've been volunteering at for over a year now. Can I put the four months under work experience, and then put the >1 year volunteering under the volunteer experiences or is would it be not okay to repeat involvement in the same lab in two places on my application? Thanks for any help!
  7. Around how much time per week did you commit to extracurricular activities/part-time job/volunteering while still staying on top of your classes and maintaining your GPA?
  8. Hey guys, I thought I would share how you could score high on this section! Link to the video explanation!
  9. I am looking to apply to Pharmacy in 2018, and I was wondering if anyone can give me a bit of insight on what extracurriculars are suitable for pharmacy? I am heading home over the summer and am looking to maybe volunteer at an elders home to obtain some community involvement. Does anyone know if this is or is not "relevant" to my application to pharmacy? Is there anyone thats been accepted in the past two or three years thats willing to share what extracurriculars they had? I know UBC also really looks at involvement. Thank you anything will help!
  10. Hey guys, Hope everything's going well! I'm wondering if someone who got accepted into medical school can post a list of what extracurriculars he/she did during each year of undergrad. Thanks
  11. Hi guys, I'm a second year student and I'm wondering how many extracurricular activities do you recommended I should have per term. Thanks
  12. Hello everyone! I'm a grade 12 student going into general sciences at the University of Alberta next year with high aspirations of making it to emergency medicine one day! Recently, we had a info session at our school regarding medical school and it really scared me because it seemed like everyone had their ECs together since birth. I am an AP student, I work two jobs (tutoring center and student researcher), volunteer, and have leadership positions in multiple clubs within my school. Some people are telling me that none of this counts for med applications, while others are telling me it's
