    Canadian here.
    (Quebecois is awesome)
    No way! You Canadians are awesome. So are you Quebecois or English? If you're Quebecois I'm insanely jealous of you. :p:

    How come you're deciding to come to England? It's so far away! I admire your guts.

    i do try to do that, i have loads of random pictures on my camera - i've been thinking of buying a new camera/really starting to look into food photography because i think my food could look so much better

    you never know what could happen - its so hard seeing people who have way better application profiles than you get 4 rejections

    i might just do that another vent for my procrastination!

    edit: and speaking of canada, another canadian here well, living in england
    I bet your food looks fine as it is. But photography is always fun!

    I know, it is really scary. But still, optimism ftw. :p:

    Yeah! You can say it's a "way of dealing with stress" in interviews, putting a positive spin on procrastination hehe.

    Have you ever been to Canada?

    Thank you! Brits aren't that bad. :P
    Unfortunately, english.
    I know, going to miss home and all the comforts but to get to med school here is like winning a lottery. You have to do 4 years of undergrad in science/business or w.e. before applying to med school and the chances of getting in are 4% so its too risky and I don't wanna spend so much time and money then realize i got rejected.

    There's nothing against you in your app, good GCSEs, good A Levels. Apparently Oxford only give a weeks notice before interviews though, is it the same for med? Cos if so that's tellement harsh!

    Haha, I do like Brits, but England is depressingly rainy and people are depressingly moany sometimes. :p:

    Wow, that's insane. And I thought the American system was harsh! England does sound like a much better option, although the fees they charge internationals are actually ridiculous.

    I wonder if there'll be a culture clash when you move here from Canada? If/when you get in, start a blog, your story will be really interesting, I reckon. :p:
