    Really need help. Urgent!

    Yeah 124 is very low.
  2. I mean you could have the exact opposite scenario occur with those two as well.
  3. For now, focus on getting a higher GPA. MCAT wont mean much without a higher GPA, and a Masters will do little good with tha GPA as well. Might want to look into doing an accelerated 2 year degree only if you're interested in the career, and can honestly tackle the reasons why you did not do as well in your first degree. Otherwise, finish your fourth year strong (if you are in fourth year), aim for as close to 4 as you can possibly get, and do the same next year. At this point, if you do extremely well in 4/5th years, then schools like Queen's and Ottawa might be open to you. So in summary, forget about spending $ on mcat, fix that GPA.

    Applying to Medical School?

    3.7 is still well below average. Aim for above 3.9 for the next three years, that will go a long way for many schools. Also go fulltime to take advantage of Toronto's weighted GPA. Some schools like queens only looks at last two years. If you apply in 4th year you will only have 1-3rd year available.

    Class size increase?

    I hope not, that's just going to make CaRMS even worse 3 years+ down the line.

    UofT prereq course description question

    You have to pay for course descriptions? That is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. Not low income friendly at all. As for your questions, sorry don’t know that seems new for this cycle didn’t have to do that last year. I’m assuming a link to the course description that you can find on some uni’s website, but not sure. Hope you get your answer soon.

    Questions about universities

    Average age this year for queen's is 24, and honestly, a ton of us are over that. So yeah, don't let age make you worry. Everyone's journey is different, good luck :).

    Chances?? (desperate)

    Definitely depends on ECs as Queens is EC heavy.
  12. After interviews are sent, never before the application is due. You can use this past application cycles cut-offs as a guideline.
  13. Realistically in Ontario, only Mac if you got a high CARS score 130+ish maybe and did well in CASPer, although you may get the bonus gpa points from McMaster with a MPH I believe, double check that, so potentially lower CARS needed. If you took full time every year to Toronto’s standard see what your wGPA is, should be 3.9+. Rest of the schools in Ontario no chance without increasing that GPA ( don’t make cut off for western/Ottawa) Queen’s no, and most schools don’t use your MPH for gpa. I’m sorry but without another degree that you kick its ass, you are not in a good position to receive any interviews in Ontario :(. As an OOP for other schools it will be even harder because they put higher standards on OOP. If you’re in rural northern Ontario for at least the last 5 years, you MIGHT have a chance as NOSM if you had a stellar ABS. 10 + years even better. Otherwise NOSM is out too. Good luck, hope that helps in your decision making.
