  1. I wasn't sure where to as post this, I figured I might try this forum. Also, I have already completed a BSc., but I am unsure of the next step. Bare in mind, I'm using McGill's admission procedures as a guideline but I would be curious to know about prereqs expiration dates for the French universities as well. Now, for fellow Quebec Nontrads, McGill states that the the science requisites would be valid for eight years. However, most of my prereqs were completed in '08, they'll expire next year. Would it matter if I retook these courses at a CEGEP (and save money) or must they be taken at a university? sirop

  3. As expected, rejected. I applied as a non-traditional applicant for the MD/MBA program. Oh well, it's off to another field.
  4. Be patient. The sun will still rise, the birds will still chirp and we're still going to have very cold winter on that day.
  5. You can have stellar stats but be rejected. You may have poor stats but your personal statement stands out from the rest of the pack. McGill is different from the French schools, they want well-rounded candidates. The French schools only rely on marks for admission.
  6. They specifically requested that you must have their consent beforehand from your verifiers to let McGill contact them in a period of one year from now.
  7. You forget another most important thing: the unique factors involving our diversity in our Canadian patients and what we should do to properly care for marginalized communities (eg. Aboriginals and African Canadians) and the cultural constructs that surround their health.
  8. Everything looks good on paper, but you have to remember that McGill doesn't really care much that you have done a gazillion hours of volunteering. They want to see what you've learned from doing those activities. It's not like the States where they expect minimum of hours to be even considered a candidate. To be honest, it doesn't hurt to apply.
  9. No, that's a stupid rumour. McGill does not discriminate based what school you go to. If you are qualified and you fit the profile that McGill seeks in their medical students, you will get in.
  10. Thanks for the quick reply! I'm relieved to hear this!
  11. Howdy everyone, I completed my DEC in Health Sciences eons ago and gosh, I ended with an abysmal r-score of 24. However, I recently graduated with a degree and did well in my university studies. Would they put more weight on my performance during my undergrad after completing X number of credits? I hear that the French schools will look at the science prereqs performance. If that's the case, is it recommended to go back to CEGEP to do my prereqs courses again despite having completed a DEC? (The reason for CEGEP over university courses is the flexibility to do my prereqs in evening classes as I work a full-time job.)
  12. Absolutely not. Joining the Forces does not make it easier to be accepted into medical school---you'll be just by the same standards as everyone else. If you are accepted to a medical school, the military will pay for your education but you will have to spend a couple of years in the military afterwards.
  13. Hey, I was a former business student who switched in psychology at Concordia. Contrary to the popular belief that psychology is 'easy', I can tell you that it's not. Ultimately just like the others have said, it is a question that you should ask yourself and not from others.
