OMSAS Medical School Application, Application of Medical School
Because of the tough competition for entering medical school, the last thing you want is for your application to be denied because of making common mistakes that you can avoid. We do not want you to make any of the 10 mistakes below that can cost you.
Being Fake: It is important to present the real version of yourself in your application. The last thing you want is to be pretentious because the admissions committee is likely to take notice.
Criticize other candidates: Do not make statements that criticize other candidates. Not only is it not professional, but it also brings out the bad personality.
Use complex words to show your vocabulary: In most cases, people who use whimsical words in their apps try to hide their poor writing skills. Stay away from this habit.
Include extracurricular activities
Application of the Medical School
Failure to include significant extracurricular activities and achievements: To avoid making this mistake, have a list of activities and accomplishments listed in chronological order. This will make filling the section easy and will help you provide accurate and up-to-date information.
Again and again: No one on the committee wants to consider a request from someone who has wandered without substance. Save the examiner’s time and keep it stuck to your test by providing factual and highlighted information. Do not go into minor details that add no value to your application. Be very concise and clear when writing your essay or personal statements.
Check your grammar and spelling
Submitting to the wrong school: Since some candidates want to minimize the work they do, they copy and paste the same answer without making any adjustments in the school names and then forward the request. Not only is it embarrassing but it can also ruin your chances of being accepted to school. Always check your profile before submitting.
Violate the number of characters: Pay attention to the given character limit because it should allow you to state the facts without going over. Remember that quality is more important than quantity.
Grammar and Spelling: Although you have a lot of writing to do, it’s still not an excuse to submit an application with countless grammatical and spelling mistakes. Give your app to someone else to read it. Revise yourself several times before finally submitting.
Use clichés: Avoid clichés as they show not only your lack of creativity, but also the fact that you do not read widely comes out instantly. You prefer to describe things in a simple way that the admissions committee can understand.
