Hey guys, congrats to those who have finished the application process! I know this is a super redundant post, but if anyone could tell me what my chances are looking like, I would really, really appreciate it... if I'm headed for rejections, I hope to be able to prepare myself for them. MCAT is 514: 127/127/128/132 2YGPA: 3.88 (cumulative is 3.61) My extracurriculars are strong - awards, president of large non profit, accessibility research, etc. I've applied to Western, Queens and Mac... any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Hey all, I've been thinking about all the things that matter the most when selecting the right medical school. Here's the list of questions that I have been considering, that I will revise: Which school best prepares you for residency? (CARMs data) What kind of learning style is emphasized at the school and does this suit you? (personal preference) Are there sufficient opportunities for observerships, research? "Sense of community". (every school I went to would boast about this. Felt like it was the same everywhere) Is there anything you would add to this? From the looks of it, the CARMs data doesn't really help discriminate between the various medical schools. Most schools have good years and bad years and the 2014 data at least showed that they're all pretty even in match rates. Overall match rates are 95%+ for every school. ---- Here are the numbers I was looking at: % of students who match to 1st choice program choice Western - 50% McMaster - 58% UofT - 61% Queens - 60% % of students who match to 1st choice discipline all schools between 92-94% CMGs Who Ranked Family Medicine as 1st Choice by School of Graduation Western - 40% McMaster - 40% UofT - 34% Queens - 23% !! (surprising) ---- If the stats are pretty even, then I'm assuming that which school you choose wouldn't affect how your career unfolds (please comment)! In that case, it would come down to a matter of personal preference. I don't care about the teaching style, I'm pretty flexible. I prefer to be close to home and a place where my engineer girlfriend can find work (Toronto or Hamilton). Thoughts??
