Hi! I’m Raquel Assayag. I’m a Dawson College graduate and a Med-P student in my first year at McGill University. I applied to all 4 medical schools in Quebec (McGill, U de Montréal, U Sherbrooke, U Laval) and got accepted to all of them. I’m primarily anglophone, but I’m comfortable with written and conversational French.
My application season was smack in the middle of the second and third wave of COVID-19, so we were kind of left in the dark about the interview process — we didn’t know whether they would be virtual or live, which schools would require interviewing, or whether or not they would take place at all. That was a hefty source of stress throughout my final year of CEGEP, but it was managed with proper prep.
I decided to join MedCoach because I know it is exactly the type of support and guidance that an applicant needs. Whether it be the Casper, the MMI or a panel interview, having a mentor, especially one that has recently gone through the process themselves, is vital. My mentors were friends that were current medical students, and I owe the confidence I had throughout application season to them.
Outside of school, I teach the violin, which I’ve been playing solo and in an orchestra for 11 years. I also love trying out new restaurants and styling my friends 🙂
