  1. Maybe you should try NOSM ? no mcat required and one third of the application is you 'context' which include if you lived or showed interest to live in rural areas. https://www.nosm.ca/education/md-program/admissions/admission-requirements/

    appliquer en médecine (biomed)

    Moi aussi j’ai remarqué pour ulaval. J’ai suivi les cours obligatoires pour Biomed option Médecine Cellulaire et Moléculaire. Très peu de cours à options. J’avais téléphoné l’an dernier pour essayer de comprendre car je pensais comme toi que peut-être ils ne me comparaient pas à biomed mais ils m’ont assuré que oui... Je trouve que c’est un peu absurde honnêtement. En plus je croyais qu’avec plusieurs sessions de doctorat j’au droit au bonus de +0.5 pour credits à UdeM mais apparemment malgré que je sois à temps plein (et que je paye pour inscription temps plein...) je n’ai pas assez de crédits de cours pour avoir le bonus. Bref dans mon cas j’appliquerai à UdeM seulement lorsque je pourrai être dans le contingent doctorat de recherche.

    appliquer en médecine (biomed)

    J’ai fini mon bacc en 2014 avec une moyenne de 8/10. J’ai appliqué en 2016 et Sherbrooke m’a calculé un CRu de 27 car ils n’ont pas biomed donc je me sais pas avec quoi ils comparent. uLaval de 31 environ. Ils ont suivi à la lettre la valeur de ta note en biomed de leur table d’étalon que tu peux retrouver sur internet, i.e. ils sont très transparents et tu peux prévoir ce qu’il vont te calculer. UdeM m’a calculé 30.3 en 2016 et 30.29 en 2018 alors qu’en 2018 ça incluait un bonus de +1 pour la maîtrise complétée. La conclusion étant que UdeM compare ta moyenne à celle des 3 dernières années de leur programme de Biomed (et non les 3 dernières années précédent ta graduation) ce qui fait que nos CRU peuvent baisser avec le temps (dans mon cas -1 en deux ans !) car les gens de biomed à UdeM ont des moyennes qui ne cessent de monter... Même si ce sont des exemples avec une moyenne assez basse pour med j’espère que ça peut t’aider un peu. Bon courage

    item outstanding

    Yes it's okay, there is not sumbit button. I did the casper on the 18th and they marked the results as received today so it makes sense that results for later test dates are not in yet. They know this and it is okay, your application will be considered complete.

    Applying tonight

    When you send your workbook it says it will take up to 3 days to appear as received on minerva but that «Only workbooks received by November 1, 11:59 PM deadline will be accepted. » so as long as it was sent before this deadline it's okay.
  6. The files in color are heavier than those in black and white.

    Prereq GPA

    This happened to me before, I just wrote about it in the comment section and they analysed it with the right number (I double checked with them afterward when I got my ranking).

    MPH vs MSc.- Academic Context

    I think there are many 'professionnal degrees' that do not lead to a profession for which one must be a member of a professional order, hence the parenthesis on the website. In many universities they consider a 'professional' master's degree any degrees without a big component of research, however only a minority of those professional masters degree lead to a profession that is part of a professional order. So I think you should not chose your masters degree based on wheither or not there is 'professional' in the title. You should do what interests you the most.

    Using "I" and "My" in the CV??

    I use chronological order, as I would in CV for a job. Seems like it would be easier to read and review.

    Using "I" and "My" in the CV??

    What do you guys think about how much details we need for 'reason of inclusion'? and do we really need to have a reason for each entry? they say in the guide that even in the award section we should not forget to put a reason of inclusion for every entry but it seems like a lot, specially for research scholarship, the reason would all be the same... Also, because of all the research I did (publications, research during undergrad, etc) I kind of have no space left for full sentences for the reason of inclusion so I've been putting keywords in italic after the description. Do you think it is okay to use keywords like 'Initiative, time gestion, teamwork.' or do you think they really expect full sentences? Thanks
  11. Glad to see I'm not alone considering doing MD after PhD For Mcgill you just have to ask for an exeption from redoing the prerequesites so they don't consider them as expired. That is what I did (you have to write to them in the summer between june and september I think) and they send you a form to fill. Very easy to fill, I am just starting my 3rd year of PhD so my 1st year of cegep is now expired and they gave me the exemption. I also know that for french schools in quebec they say on their website that the prerequesites expire after 8 years but in the end they would decide on a case by case basis and consider the Master+PhD to be equivalent to the prerequesites. Maybe it would be like that for other schools? It would just seen silly to me that someone holding a PhD would have to re-take 1st-year uni classes...

    DMD application 2019

    Two years ago I was invited with a GPA of 3.6 so it's possible if you have a nice CV, personnal statement and CASPER. I expect that the mean GPA might go down a bit as they will only consider applicants who had above a certain score at the DAT (https://mcgill.ca/dentistry/4-year-dmd-program/requirements#DAT ) I just discovered this today, I just assumed there were no changes from last year's requirements... I wish I checked before, now it is a bit too late to start preparing as the last date to take the DAT for Mcgill is november 3rd. I don't want to risk paying more than 300$ and not getting the score I need because I didn't prepare? I hate when they put an expiration date on test results, for UdeM the DAT never expires, I did the DAT 8 years ago and my scores were great, how would my dexterity and perception skills have decreased?
  13. Je comprend que dans l'optique de réduire la valeur des notes post-entrevue c'est positif. Je voulais simplement dire qu'il serait plus logique selon moi de faire comme à Mcgill ou comme en pharmacie et med dentaire à UdeM et de faire la sélection avec 20-40% casper + 60-80% résultats académiques.
  14. « Une première sélection est faite, fondée uniquement sur l'excellence du dossier scolaire. » C'est juste moi où d'autres trouvent aussi que ça n'a aucun sens d'utiliser le CASPER seulement post-entrevue ? Ils veulent favoriser les gens nerveux socialement (moins bons au MEM) mais qui ont d'excellentes notes et un excellent raisonnement ? Mais pas ceux qui ont d'un peu moins bonnes notes mais un excellent raisonnement/CV et qui n'ont actuellement pas la chance de démontrer leurs people skills au MEM ? C'est ça la logique ou j'ai mal compris ? (en plus c'est seulement 10%, on doit payer 50$ de plus pour quelque chose qui vaut juste 10%... comment faire dépenser de l'argent aux étudiants juste pour pouvoir dire aux autres facultés de med que eux aussi ils utilisent le casper...)
