With CaRMS closing soon for CMGs I wanted to wish everyone luck.  A few friends from the year below me have asked for some help editing and this reminded me of all the stresses of the application process.  A few small things:

  • Make sure to attach all the documents each school wants.  Some want up to 3 reference letters, some accept more.  Little details matter, spend the time to upload everything required
  • Address the prompts for the personal statement
  • Some schools have different CV requirements, be aware
  • Attach a nice picture to your application.  I took mine infront of a wooden door in a hotel during an elective
  • Make sure the picture is of you, not a meme
  • Have a friend or two read over your letters
  • Interested, but boring was the advice I was given.  Don’t try to scare your reader

Soon it will be submitted, the interview invites will hopefully roll in and the next stage will begin.

Best of luck
