  1. they've already sent out acceptances to people with really high GPAs (started in February and have been rolling since). I spoke to admissions and they said the bulk will go out at the end of May. I've heard other people say they have until May 17 to accept the offer, and others have said they will send out more offers on May 17 and 30th. Don't know how low they'll go. Do you know how they're calculating the GPA? on their site, it says the last 10.0 courses (is that the last 10 credits (20 courses/last 2 years)? or literally the last 10 classes taken. Also, my GPA is out of 4.33 so I don't know how to convert it to the 4 point scale. help?
  2. sorry to hear about your results. did they send the rejection by email/mail/ or did you just see it on the self-service centre? my status still says complete-under review in department...extremely nerve-racking having to wait, i can't imagine anyone turning down the interview :/. Im OOP, GPA 4.03/4.5
  3. if people would like to share their stats, and support each other through this anxious period 1) undergrad major 2) careers/experience 3) GPA 4) first/recurrent applicant about me. 1) life science major, completing second undergrad 2) clinical research assistant/coordinator 3) first degree: 3.2, second degree 3.89 4) first time applying, applied to MAC also

  5. Personally, the medicine route has been a defeating one for me....but my fire has been lit by the prospects of being a physician assistant-at my job,for PAs that work in the ER (basically straight of of school) the hourly rate is 42 and goes up to 52. I don't know just something to think about-it's 2 years of school-offered by McMaster, uoft and Manitoba....I believe Uoft is distance? But you'll have to commute for placements in the second year.
  6. Thnx for creating, I'm curious to know aswell. So far I've tarted working on answering the short questions
  7. how is the program going for you thus far? im interested in applying for fall 2017...can you give me any insight...thanks
  8. thanks for the feedback freewheeler. I agree completely, with my current grades I stand no chance, unless I ace the MCAT, and complete this degree with stellar grades...I checked with queens and they would take best 2 years from the second degree. I know the field is not all rainbows and sunshine. like I said I work with physicians at all levels (staff, residents, and fellows)...I'm also aware of other careers in healthcare. but I know this is what I want to do- my reasons? its a combination of personal and life experiences mixed with general curiosity for clinical work- difficult to articulate in words really maybe I just needed reassurance or for someone to tell me that it is not the end all or be all if it didn't work out thank you for pointing that out
  9. hello everyone, I'm no special snowflake...my story is pretty much similar to all other brave souls on this thread. ill try to keep this short and to the point... finished 1st degree in human bio and neuro-took 5 years at UofT, cGPA 2.63 (spend a lot of time studying, but not studying correctly). in HS I volunteered at several hospitals that landed me at SickKids in a research training program so I did that for about 2 years + I did work study as an RA at at a hospital for 2 years until I graduated. after graduation, spend an entire year looking for work with no luck, at the same time decided to apply 2-year fast track with no real hopes of getting in. as luck would have it I got hired by the same research group wherebi worked as an RA working as their research coordinator (started 10 months ago) and boss allowed me to go back to school and work part time-ish. I just finished my 1st semester in my new program got A's in all 6 classes + 2 new publications in major medical journals from research at work Second semester will be starting soon but my classes are pre-scheduled and I can literally only work 1 full day (this will surely not be acceptable to my boss + I have bills to pay) I work with doctors day in and out (specifically anesthesiologists)..they think I'm crazy to go back to school and waste all this time and money just for more years ahead in med. working with them has fueled my dreams for a med career that much more but I also have to be realistic. I could finish the 1st year of my second UG and apply, or I could just give it all up and continue working and making a descent salary-maybe go back for an MSc in biostat or epidemiology. I know the last 2 options will not make me happy and I have to try applying to med at least once. I'll be finishing my first year in April 2017, writing the MCAT in September and applying in October would MAC (they seem to be more wholesome), Ottawa maybe? or should I just complete the degree-then apply to western, queens and Ottawa this turned out or be longer than I wanted, so thanks for reading this far any advise is welcome
