  1. You never know man I just had to be safe there
  2. Don't, it's a quote from The Office
  3. Are you in town? If so I'd recommend dropping by then sending an email follow-up to have it in writing. I don't know how rigorously the Faculty of Med follows the Course Equivalency System. I wouldn't want to mislead you but I think they are significantly less strict than that. Another option you have is going through Athabasca.
  4. Smile but under no circumstances should you show teeth. Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.
  5. Yeaaaaaaah no, none of that is true. Personne n'impose quoi que ce soit a quiconque. McGill est une bonne faculte pour des gens un peu plus ages. Xanoreem, pour ce qui est de ta situation, tu dois faire tes cours de science prerequis et probablement faire un bacc avant de rentrer. C'est vrai que tu serais un des plus ages par contre et que c'est un long parcours. Donc autant pour toi que pour le comite d'admissions, il serait peut etre important d'avoir des motifs plus approfondis que "pourquoi pas"
  6. McGill donne pas les points non plus. questions do get taken off and i think that is the norm
  7. u are talking to a bot
  8. They see everything you've uploaded but they'll definitely only consider the most recent one.
  9. Good luck! And congrats on turning it around
  10. Submit them. You can still make it in schools that look at latest undergrad, 2y, 3y, etc. If you get caught you are absolutely done. In terms of fairness it's also a really shitty thing to do. I've failed a class, I've gotten a whole bunch of C's, still ended up getting in.
  11. yes they look at them competitively post-intw
  12. Completely agree with HappyAndHopeful. Don't worry too much about it, talk to your verifier, and admissions staff are humans too, fully capable of understanding and using their judgment. Good luck
  13. Hey guysssss, I'm not affiliated with Astroff at all or anything so let me come up here unprompted and write a wall of text praising them and encouraging everyone to use them, but like they're totes expensive but, like, it's so worth it tho, oh and the other companies suck, but astroff doesnt byee
  14. 525 is a bit low though, I would be very concerned with that 129
  15. No idea how the MCAT is considered exactly, only know that it is a half-half thing. Can't even say with absolute certainty that psych is ignored, just that this is what I was told last year. Things are changing fairly significantly from year to year though, so who knows... I remember worrying about this as much as you did if not more but at the end of the day, we don't know and we can't know.
  16. I am quite sure you are incorrect. Scroll down to the final point Post interview formula: 1. 80% Intw 2. 20% Basic sciences. In this 20%, it is either completely accounted by your CEGEP pre-reqs OR your recommended courses (whichever is more advantageous). In the case where someone took the MCAT and chose to submit it, it will be broken down further: 10% MCAT, 10% CEGEP pre-reqs OR your recommended courses. Also, just extra info from what I was told when I was applying, for MCAT, your overall score is considered, and it seems that the Psych section is ignored.
  17. No in fact the cut-off is actually 4.3
  18. This is new from this yr
  19. Exactly, NTP is a bad way of going about it. The number of courses required is explicitly stated on the website. If I recall correctly you need 6 credits, therefore 2 courses.
  20. Don't take them and apply NTP then
  21. As per the quote above, you MUST have done all Option 1 courses to qualify for Option 2. If your Option 1 courses are expired, then Option 2 would be considered in your pre-req GPA. If they aren't, either one will be picked (whichever one favours you most).
  22. i took 200 and 201. 200 was accepted by mcgill, I'm not sure about 201 as I got in from WL as I was taking it. That being said I've taken several courses from AU and while I'm not a huge fan of them and their costs, McGill has consistently accepted them. If you are in Montreal you should look into Cont.Ed. at various CEGEPs though. They are much cheaper, and the courses are much less time-consuming
