So, everyone has seen this movie right? Apologies for getting that song stuck in your head. If you haven't, that's the Wizard of Oz, where, through an interdimensional/incredibly hallucinatory tornado, Dorothy (and her little dog too!) find themselves in the magical land of Oz. They meet up with a cast of obvious metaphors, and all … Continue reading Pay no attention to the (wo)man behind the curtain
So, I might have mentioned here that I made an interview video for MUN Med. I also might have hinted that it was a Game of Thrones parody. This might is be it 🙂 Tada! Please feel free to give it a watch - no money is being made off this post, and no copyright infringement … Continue reading Welcome to the game of loans
So, this was a busy, busy, busy past 48 hours for the little lowly denizens of MUN med. Friday morning saw exam 3, friday afternoon was all about inter-professional presentations, friday evening was mandated interviewer training, 11:30 saw my friend coming in for the interview arrive, Saturday morning saw a 6am wake-up to make 7:30 for … Continue reading Exam three, interviews and the magic of faculty mandated extensions
So, a couple days ago I the manual for the TaMMI interviewers, and yes, it'd certainly would have been something that I would have died to get my hands on pre-interview 😉 Now, I'm not going to post anything about the contents of the manual (because I would be expelled, for starters), but it does … Continue reading Interview season and other ramblings
So, Monte Carlo, the biggest fundraiser than MUN med does is in three days, on Nov 1rst! It's a huge event where people come and gamble for charity, dance, drink, bet on donated prizes, and generally look swish, because this years theme is The Great Gatsby 🙂 Funny, I didn't think I get so much … Continue reading Guys and dolls…it’s almost Monte Carlo time!
So, yesterday was the filming of our interview video, and OMG, it was soooo much fun! Directing is a lot of work, and never again will I think that the (severely over paid, let's still be real here) movie industry is a cake walk, let me tell you that. Through a great friend-of-a-friend connection we … Continue reading Lights, camera…CUT!
So...I passed my second exam! Honestly though, this one is mostly just a relief because I have to direct and run the filming or our interview video this Saturday for 4 hours, so I just don't have time for a rewrite now. If I didn't have that, I really wouldn't mind, and I'm going to … Continue reading Refugee health, and lovely four letter words
So, as the newly elected Admissions Interview Video Coordinator (I get to plan the video, write the script, film it, and also coordinate the student greeters and tours for the two interview blocks of the day) for the MUN Interview Nov 15th, I guess the time has come to talk about the interview process. The … Continue reading Interviews (dun dun duuunnn…)
So, the thing you'll notice when you go to an medical interview (especially one in Canada) is that after the MMI, they'll have you watch a video made by the current Med1 and Med2's trying to get you to pick their university. This video always seemed rather pointless to me - I'd go ANYWHERE, really, … Continue reading My pre-med feelings…as told by a video by University of Alberta
