  1. ***NOW UPDATED WITH THE 2019 MSAR*** The new MSAR values are given at the top of each school's description with a heading MSAR 2019. Note that this means using MSAR values released on 2019. They're for class entering fall 2018. Hi fellow non-Americans,As noncitizens, we face greater difficulty than Americans - there are schools that flat out reject any international applications, schools that say they accept but never really interview anyone (looking at you, Tufts and Baylor), and schools that are super friendly towards us. Of course, they're all on MSAR, but unless some screams MSAR
  2. Hi everyone, This community has been a great resource for me, so I've been looking for a way to give back. Ever since D-day (aka May 10th for my fellow OMSAS warriors), I've been getting lots of PMs about interview skills. Partly because I got multiple offers, and partly because on my A/W/R posts I noted how well the interviews went. Rather than answering each PM separately I figured I'd make a post to point people towards so that others might benefit in the future. I'm not an interview god, I didn't know how to interview before I started, and I wasn't confident in my skills going in.
  3. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  4. Hi all! My name is Christopher and I am the author of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca which I know a few of you have found to be a useful resource for your premed journey. This summer a classmate and I have been busy working on a new podcast called Pluripotent Premed which we intent to act as an audio guide for navigating the premed years as a Canadian applicant. We dive into all topics related to the MCAT, med school interview, extracurriculars, and more. We will also be interviewing classmates of ours who are got into med from alternative backgrounds (e.g. arts, nursing, other careers) and
  5. Hey everyone, I am interested in hearing everyone's opinion on the pros/cons of each dental school. I'll get it going based on what I've heard: Toronto: + Big city living + Networking/Social - Competitive atmosphere - Cost of living - Archaic program/facility - Notoriously difficult profs Western: + New/renovated facility + Cost of living + Less competitive atmosphere - Less nightlife - Smaller city McGill: + Low tuition + Small class sizes + Beautiful city + Average program - Out of Ontario - French city - Others????
  6. Hi Everyone! A little while ago I made a post asking whether a 5th year would benefit me more than a Masters would in my pursuit of med school. I have been looking into what a fifth year would look like for me (Currently in health sciences at Western) and a counselor had told me that next year I would be registered at a "Special Student". I would technically graduate this year since I satisfied all of my degree's criteria but I could come back with this new status. I have never heard of this new status as a special student before and was wondering if med schools do in fact consider this i
  7. How is everyone feeling post interview? I am feeling pretty down about my MMIs and was wondering if anybody has any insight on MMIs or the chances of getting in with a strong traditional interview, and a strong remaining application? I really feel like I might have blew it.
  8. Hi everyone! I thought it would be interesting to have an updated discussion on how to be competitive for CaRMS and hopefully match to the specialties we're shooting for. The medical field is constantly changing and I think it would be beneficial to have more updated discussions about how to prepare for CaRMS. We all know that CaRMS can be a stressful time for many. I would like to hear more from others about how to prepare a strong application for CaRMS. This discussion can include anything from research, extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, hobbies), clerkship, electives, LOR, inter
  9. Hey there! I've bought the MSAR, and have looked through it a lot... however I am having some serious struggles with deciding where to apply to. My cGPA is a 3.65 with a strong upward trend (first year GPA was a 3.0), my MCAT score is a 509 (poor CARS score), I am rewriting my MCAT this summer. I have already completed 90% of the AMCAS application, but now I'm questioning if it's even worth to apply.. Literally every school I look into has different course requirements, different letter of reference requirements, and barely matriculate international students. (What even is the poin
  10. Hi there, I am a grade 11 honours/AP student who has a passion for sciences and medicine. Recently I've been browsing these forms and I've seen that this site is generally a good place to gain advice from former students about University and post graduate endeavours, so I thought, 'hey, why not give it a try'. I am here to ask if anyone knows of any successful and fulfilling (financial and personally fulfilling) fields to go into after an undergraduate program such as Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences and/or Biochemistry. I am also open to taking/planning on attending graduate sc
  11. I didn't take any English courses during my undergrad, because I figured it would tank my GPA for that year (I really really suck at writing essays). However, I didn't get any interviews this round, so I'm looking at applying to pharmacy & optometry schools along with my second round of med applications this year. Unfortunately, these programs all require English Does anyone have a good recommendation (or a grade distribution!) for a first year level English summer course? I've looked into Queen's, but the grade distribution for the past 2 summers has been very discouraging.
  12. Hi guys, I've tried searching on this but couldn't find anything, so I was hoping someone might be able to comment. For those who have written both the Canadian and American DATs and have/are applying to the States, do schools even bother looking at the Canadian one if you've written the American version? Do you even have to send your Canadian scores to schools if you're sending American ones? (I understand that some schools only accept the American one or prefer it over the Canadian one, but I'm just asking in general) I've scored well (21+) on all parts of the cDAT except for carving, whic
  13. Hey! So I've spent the last 3 months of summer studying for the cDAT but now that school has started I'm finding it hard to manage both. Any tips or strategies?
  14. Hi All, How does one most effectively finance Dental school expenses (tuition+living). From what I have read so far it seems that people are taking out LOCs. Although banks generally offer lower rates on LOCs vs traditional loans, I still feel that it may be very difficult to pay off the ever-increasing monhtly compounded interest. Are there other forms of financial aid that one can apply to (e.g. government loans/bursaries)? Any advice is appreciated
  15. Hey everyone, My name is Daegan and I'm a first year medical student over at the Niagara regional campus. Let me know if you have any questions from a student's perspective. Please note that the views I represent here are my own, and do not necessarily reflect those of McMaster University or the McMaster Niagara Campus. Daegan
  16. June 30th is generally thrown around, but so far I can only find it in U of T and Western's policies. Does anyone know what the policy is at Mac? And how strict it is?
  17. Hello, I'm french speaking so sorry if my english isn't always good. I'm currently studying psychology. I'm from Quebec so I went to cegep and was studying Social Sciences. I was in ''CST'' (weaker math) in high school so didn't do my chemistry and physics courses. If I want to start earning the necessary prerequisites for med school. Where do I start? Do I have to go back to cegep and start all again? Or can I do those classes at the university? Thank you.
  18. June 1st is quickly approaching and the pressure to make my decision is increasing as the days go by. I've been accepted to 5 schools and I have narrowed it down to McGill and Western for Biomedical Sciences and Medical Sciences, respectively. If anyone has firsthand experience with either of the two programs your input would be greatly appreciated! I've heard a lot about Western's Medical Science program and am very impressed, but I have yet to hear about McGill's. I am a Med School hopeful interested in applying to medical schools across Canada and possibly in the states. So I guess I want
  19. Hi everyone, first time poster here. I have a few questions with AMCAS opening up soon. 1. The AMCAS app opens up May 5th. Does this mean I should tell my references to start sending in their letters after this day? OR, since the app can actually get submitted June 2nd, is this the date I should be aiming for? The reason I ask is that people seem to emphasize rolling admissions for American schools. 2. How does it work if I get accepted to both an American and Canadian school? I know American acceptances are way earlier on, so am I able to hold my spot down with a deposit, and esse
  20. NOTE: I have a lot of questions, so feel free to answer whatever portion you'd like! Thanks in advance! I'm a third year Physiology Major at U of T and I am curious about my chances as is. I feel like I'm a solid applicant, but... generic. First year: 3.83 Second Year: 3.77 Third Year: First semester is a 3.86. Second semester is looking pretty good but it's difficult to tell because of the strike (barely know my marks). So my cGPA, weighing my first semester as a half year, is 3.812. Using the U of T weighting formula (from my understanding, it would be take away 3.0 lowest grades
  21. Anyone selling "Medical School Interviews Over 150 Questions Analysed. Includes MMI" by Olivier Picard and George Lee or "Doing Right" by Philip C Hébert? I'm buying! They are only available on amazon, I don't want to wait for the shipping.
  22. Hi! Would anyone (preferably who have been admitted or is applying to UBC Medicine) be willing to take a quick look of my Non-Academic Activities section? This is my first time applying, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
