Thoughts?: Changes to medical school admission process puts more focus on experiences and values


Recommended Posts

It's a good approach but will not be popular in the current environment ruled by obsession with numerical scores. "Autobiographical sketch, reviewed and scored by a panel of physician and non-physician reviewers"?  Nooo. Too subjective. Those who spend lots of time and effort  manipulating their GPA will feel the injustice.

Now it will just be favouring those who spent time manipulating their non GPA stuff.

Generally speaking I like Ontario's system of a school for each type of candidate. The high MCATs used to go to Western, High GPAs to Ottawa, High verbal/CASPer to Mac and the overall holistic schools were Queens and Toronto. 

Made a few corrections there...

Generally speaking I like Ontario's system of a school for each type of candidate. The high *CARS* in MCATs used to go to Western, High GPAs to Ottawa, High verbal/CASPer to Mac and the *Mysterious holistic* school is Queens and Very high GPA is *Toronto*.  Each school has its own criteria but none really looked at the whole package of GPA, MCAT and ECs as a whole, unless US MD schools.
