  1. si t'ameliores pas tes notes tu risques de finir sans-abri
  2. Yes! Practice with friends who are applying/in med and give each other feedback (with regards to content, structure, communication style). There is no paid online resource that will give you any real advantage IMO. If you go to McGill, I heard CaPS actually organizes mock MMIs which I was told were fairly good.
  3. Oh wow. That being said, that's CaPS, not the faculty, nor "McGill" really. I suppose they are entitled to their opinion...Having seen what MedCoach is about I believe they are absolutely useless and no point in investing $ in them. I personally think they are not worth it at all. Their videos/scenarios are overly simplistic, the advice is average to downright terrible...
  4. Where does McGill suggest med coach? Lol
  5. I would get ahead of it and contact admissions to clear that up.
  6. ^ mon gars tu viens de te comparer à MLK et de low-key menacer un kid sur un forum.... déconnecte un peu d'Internet
  7. You know your data is BS when your inquiry as to why people want to be doctors includes ONLY the following choices: - be a leader and make money - help and make money - following on the footsteps of mom and dad - help even if i had to volunteer Obviously the majority of participants will pick something that will lead you to "conclude" that they "are extrinsically motivated to pursue medicine by status, financial gain, or family tradition". Your survey is ridiculously flawed.
  8. ^ No - if they do a second undergrad in sci (granted that their first one was also in sci) it could take them 2y to complete it entirely. OP, focus on ur second ug and retake lowest prereqs in the summer (unless your recommended courses are excellent).
  9. I'm actually at McGill my friend Hope Western is going well for you
  10. You have a non-negligible shot with weighing formulas or with a solid MCAT. If that doesn't work out, do a second undergrad. If that doesn't work out, try again while considering alternative careers. If that doesn't work out, go carib and try to make it back to US/Canada. If that doesn't work out, you're left with an insane debt you can't possibly pay back.
  11. Depending on your GPA and programs, admission to the French schools may be possible although extremely difficult. McGill totally achievable with a 2nd UG, there's quite a few ppl every year who make it. Get your 45 credits by time of application, do well, make sure your prereqs arent expiring and apply on your final year
  12. Hey, I remember you from last cycle! Good luck man Hope it all works out this year!!
  13. If you're aiming for McGill, the undergrad you choose will have no impact on your chances of getting accepted. The only two factors you'd need to consider is your interest and relative difficulty of the program. The French schools do discriminate based on the program however. PT and other professional programs have an advantage. I suggest you look that up or ask on their forums to see what's best.
  14. You'll be fine! I had two and spoke to admissions at a couple of schools and they told me it didn't matter as long as it wasn't a recurrent pattern (ie., every semester), in which case it could raise some questions.
