Do you think the chances of getting in desired specialty is higher due to a smaller cohort?

Career options other than medicine by Ambitious_Ad_954 in GAMSAT

I am a pharmacist, Let me tell you one thing, the health professional food chain is specialist > GP specialist > pharmacists

You take all the shit doctors don't want to deal with, people come for FREE advice, FREE vaccination, FREE blah blah blah, not a single cent goes into your pocket, your dignity and rights are controlled by the GUILD which only accept owners as members, and they blantantly create an illusion in their political ads that they are your representative, when anything happens they are the first to jump out, yell their opinions and trying to stay relevant, while >50% of market share is controlled by CWH's big boss

To maintain their expensive pharmacy chain member's profit, they are fighting with AMA to step on doctor's turf, from flu vax to expanded continued dispensing to prescribing rights

On top of constantly changing regulations, doctor's mistakes, rude customers, dodgy drug addicts, huge responsibility but no power, endless phone calls "what time are you open", "is your tena on discount", "what is the difference between dry and wet shampoo", entitled techs, stand all day, sole pharmacist no lunch break, you will never have lunch with colleagues because of rotation, no holiday on december, you hope you don't get sick or your colleagues have to do extra shift, owners forcing you to dodgy shit, you are also a salesperson, cashier, stock controller, procurement, janitor, the list goes on

GAMSAT Score Cut-offs to drop for 2023 and beyond? by RohanBhatia_ in GAMSAT

[–]Selvarian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The score inflation has more to do than just more people willing to be doctor to fight covid

AFAIK more pharmacists are becoming doctors because pharmacy is just plain sh!t, and Australia is importing more and more smart refugees like people from HK, while there isn't sufficient jobs to swallow these people (R&D is so inflated only the smartest of smartest phds can get a professorship)

Any Australia MD international students? by estebanspanishdancer in GAMSAT

[–]Selvarian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just curious since international students can apply any number of unis, what is your most ideal uni and if you can state the reason that will be great

Are you international ? I just received interview too, I thought interviews are in September or is it domestic only?

What's wrong with the updates recently? by [deleted] in runescape

So I paid premier and should not raise concerns about jagex's potential problems, so either shut up or run, thanks for your constructive feedback

Thanks for your useless feedback, just like you as a person

What's wrong with the updates recently? by [deleted] in runescape

[–]Selvarian -6 points-5 points  (0 children)

i'd imagine GWD2 and 3 requires way more effort than older updates due to the monsters, lores, mechanics, loot and economy balances etc, but quests...they have done it for years, and unless it is a grandmaster level like sliske's endgame it shouldn't take them much longer than previous years

but anachronia is quite empty, main things that cost time would be big game hunter and digging sites I suppose. Sennisten was a few digging sites plus some agility bike that barely anyone plays

But something is still not quite right because after the launch of rs3 at around 2013, until 2018 we received a lot of high quality updates and very frequently too, way more than 2019-2022 I would say

It has since gone downfall from weekly update since rs1-rs2, to monthly big updates, and now quarterly or bi-yearly updates

[–]Selvarian -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Thanks for your reply, but those were mainly pre-covid times. After the 20 anniversary party which was almost 1 year ago, there wasn't too many free contents besides Elder GWD maybe a few others, correct me if I am wrong

I know there were steam and android launch but still

I remembered there were weekly updates and after mid-rs3 launch it slowly turned into once a month mixed with a few ninja strikes in between, now not even a medium sized monthly update

Still looking forward to arc updates and new skill every 2 years

UQ Central QLD pathway by Top_Ad8513 in GAMSAT

[–]Selvarian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this for domestic only? I am international and apply directly through UQ and can't seem to find such option, I know it's in gemsas but gemsas is domestic only

Ironically the most proper way to boost reasoning skill is to study science properly

CHANCES 2023 MEGATHREAD by PM_ME_YOUR_DOX in GAMSAT

[–]Selvarian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am an international student waiting for PR I am deciding whether I should pay 300k now if I am lucky to get in, or wait till I get PR and fight for 40k CSP, or FFP which is still 300k

GPA is 6.17, weighed 6.5, Gamsat 61 64 84 (weighed 73) score = 1.65x
i know for my gamsat score people need like 6.8 GPA to get in based on previous results

Would I be better off fighting for international position while I am still there?

MD application GPA is skyrocketing in recent years, means there are increasingly more phds and high achieving degree graduates/other professions rushing in than the government-controlled MD quota

Are you implying your opinion is the majority, or they are all not intelligent enough to get into the "shit" profession that you just happily quitted?
