  1. Hello, Have any of you been accepted to UofT, or at least called for an interview with a lower GPA between 3.8-3.89? If so, what other aspects in your application do you think made up for it? Thanks in advance!
  2. Would my research supervisor, that is also linked to my university but has not directly taught me in any courses count as an academic reference, since they do the ability to comment on my academic abilities? P.s I am not doing a thesis with them but am just working on a research project.
  3. Thank you for your reassurance! I've been reading that UofT has a competitive GPA cutoff which is assessed each year and is usually something like 3.88 and only those who meet this are invited to interviews. Do you know whether this is true?
  4. For a university such as UofT which prefers its MD applicants to have research experience, do you think having publications can "make up" for a lower wGPA such as 3.88? I'm worried that I will not be invited for interviews due to my low marks but I have a lot of experience in research and in my opinion, good ECs. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi everyone, What are the differences in terms of duties/responsibilities for both hospital and retail pharmacy? As well, can anyone provide a description of what a day in the life of a hospital pharmacist is like compared to a retail pharmacist? Thanks in advance.

    Doing Pharmacy After 2 Years Of Undergrad?

    That's good advice. Just out or curiosity, how are you so certain that pharmacy is right for you? What do you like about it?
  7. I'm still in my first year of undergrad and as of now, I'm really interested in pharmacy and almost certain about pursuing it. People I've talked with suggest applying after completing undergrad so you have a degree to fall back on if pharmacy does not work out. What are your perspectives? Is it a good idea to apply to pharmacy during second year?
