    Interview Essay

    Hi! I've heard that St. George's asks interviewees to write an essay before the actual interview. Does anyone remember what their essay topics have been? Thanks! =)

    yes, well u people go through premed. but we have an intense premed preparatory program in last 2 yrs of high school itself. here, an mbbs (~md) and a bds (~dds) are far more respectable degrees than say a B.A. or a B.Sc.

    LOOOOL...unfortunately....technically....in the University system (at least in Canada and from what I have read in the US as well) an MD degree is an Undergrad, Professional Undergrad if you'd like, but still undergrad this is how it is classified.

    Ok then....I will re-tract my US comment, maybe y'all are all graduates, however in Canada (Laval, UofM, McGill, Sherbrooke, UofO....) they have the MD degree under the 1st cycle (Undergrad, and/or professional undergrad classification, despite the appelant `doctorat`the program is not a 2nd (Master/Ph.D nor 3rd cycle Post-Doc)
    Again...I was not saying that IT IS an undergraduate degree...LOL...good knows it won`t feel like an undergraduate degree, I was just saying that "techincally" it is under the undergrad 1st cycle designation...that's ALL I was saying!!!!! GEEZ!!! One cannot play the devil's advocate anymoreIndex Programmes de 1er cycle par domaine d'tudes
    Baccalauréats disciplinaires
    Applying to McGill
    just a few to back-up my point.

    AND M.D. Degree: Medical Degree | Medicine Doctor or Doctor of Medicine the definition stating that it is a Doctoral degree (with WHICH I totally agree!!!! But was not my point!!! Geez!)

    My issue was the generalization of the M.D. being an undergrad degree in North America. I did some sleuthing and found that the M.D. is in fact considered an undergrad degree in Canada. I didn't realize that...so I learned something new today!

    Anyway....we are totally off topic from the original intent of this thread. We've both made our points...so I am going to take my leave from this thread.

    swimchick we all live and learn LOL...plus I was just playing with semantics for fun.... :-) hate it when the human reaction and mimic cannot be seen on these things, takes all the fun away...anyway...true that...we are digressing...BACK on topic: essay is 15minutes, the topics are always the same (so far): 1) why you want to become a doctor; 2) describe a turning point moment in your past when you decided to become a doctor; 3) Describe 3 qualities that you think a physician should have, and you posess, and how they will help you become a better MD. (these are not the exact wordings but I hope the point is put accross). Good luck!

    Question 1. List 3 traits that make a good physician that you posess and how they will help you?
    Question 2: Describe a notable turning point in your adult life that resulted in your decision to become a physician.
    Question 3: Name one person who you admire/inspires you
