  1. Living is about 12k (Avg of 1k/month per rent) Text books and equipment and app/programs, white coat ~ $500 (The only mandatory things were Stethoscope, White Coat and an ultrasound book - but there is a pdf) Tuition $4000-$14000 (depending on your status)
  2. In the past few years between 9 and 11
  3. In my view, I think you are still definitely fine for a Canadian school, especially since you are considering taking a 5th year. If you manage to do well during the next two to three years and getting a 3.7+ cGPA, you will have a good shot at (but not limited to) Queens, McMaster and Western (assuming good MCAT). Also don't forget that many schools drop grades or only look at recent years - another reason why I think you are definitely still in good standing for a Canadian University. The best advice anyone can give you, like you said yourself, focus these upcoming academic years and kill the MCAT
  4. This course is very easy to manage and you do not need an exemption from it all. You will be put in a group based on your interests regarding a research topic. You and your group will do small research assignments (like once every two months) and meet with your supervisor to discuss the assignments. There were a total of only 4 meetings in Med 1 and 2 meetings in Med 2.
  5. My sibling is the same predicament and she is going to choose Queens Health Sci. The $ helps and the program on paper seems very similar to Health Sci. Also Queens took 100 vs Mac (220 now) so becoming close with professors seems also easier as well. And honestly at the end of the day, if you were hardworking in HS, this will most likely translate into university and you will be fine either way.
  6. I believe you are not allowed to re-apply for Med-P once you have applied once and you started an undergrad degree. Best thing is to email the faculty.
  7. Last year it took 1 week for me but my address was in QC
  8. Two years ago half the waitlist closed within the two weeks. I would not expect much movement (5-10 spots?) since they over accept. However, they do not waitlist a lot of people, so you still have a super good chance!

  10. Hey man! Congrats on your acceptance! Typical week day looks like: 830-11:30: 3 lecture classes in a hall. These are usually all recorded, so you can watch the previous days at home 12:30-2:30/3:30: Small group (mandatory) or Histolabs or Anatomy labs (where attendance in both is not taken but highly encouraged to go if you want to pass your exams) This is pretty much how every week will look like, besides the odd days you do not have anything in the afternoon and that is quite random. You and 3 other students get a cadaver for the entire year to dissect every anatomy lab. You share this cadaver with 4 other Med 2 students (they will be doing repro/neuro) and occasionally PT and OT students. Also McGill Med has three semesters. A summer one as well since school finishes mid/end of June. I hope this helps!
  11. There are two types of pairing: 1) LFME - that is based on your location preference/ability to speak French. 2) Your Osler fellow is a specialist in any domain. This one is done completely randomly and you get to me them during your welcome week and have lunch with them. In your Osler group you will also have third year students who will help guide the meetings. Usually you meet your Osler fellow once a month and he/she helps organize your 4 mandatory patient encounters that you need write reports on.
  12. Looks like the OP is actually moving quite fast. Usually 6-7th are contacted around June and early July. Expect more OOP movement in May once all Med results are out. Looks like the list will be in the double digits for sure, perhaps even reach 15th or higher. IP movement will happen starting May for sure. You have all other other schools to release both their med and dent results. However, I do see that there is not much overlap between med and dent this year. I think the biggest thing to start is def your immunization if you are between 1-20 on both waitlist. That July 31st deadline is quite firm and you don't want something to happen just because of this.
  13. I don't think your choice of campus will ever impact your applications. Many schools including UBC and UofT make you choose a campus and they only look at your preference once you have been accepted. If you are accepted and are in the lower ranks or have no preferences, chances are you will get Gatineau (which actually looks quite amazing!). Either way, it is an acceptance and you should run with it
  14. One thing to remember is that when you are re-applying for MD, you will be most likely asked of why you are switching, so be prepared! But it is very doable (transferred from DMD to MD)
