  1. Bonjour, I have a couple of questions regarding Quebec medical schools, since there's not that much info out there. I am fully fluent in French btw, so I should have no problems with interviews etc... 1. Can Ontarians apply? And specifically what are the chances? Would they be much better if I was to gain IP status in Quebec? 2. How would my grades be calculated? I know McGill uses GPA, but the others (Laval, Sherbrooke and U de M) use a CRU. Would they use my GPA or convert my grades to a CRU? Also, what are the GPA weightings for each school? 3. If I remember properly, only grades and MMI scores are used in admission for the French MD schools, right? They don't care about ECs.
  2. What kind of stats would be considered as "strong"? According to TCOM, the average GPA was 3.63, sGPA was 3.53 and the MCAT score was 506.
  3. Is UNTHSC/TCOM friendly to Canadians? I know 90% of their entering class are in-state residents, but what about the other 10%. Do Canadians matriculate to TCOM?
  4. It's so sad that any Texas medical schools never interview or matriculate any international students. Their OOS tuition is so cheap, making it actually affordable to attend a USMD school.
  5. I was under the impression that WashU gives scholarships/merit aid to Canadians.

    Question about SWOMEN

    Is there an option on OMSAS to declare that you are SWOMEN?

    FAQ: What are my chances?

    Some clinical and research experience wouldn't hurt at all. Just keep it up and you'll have a shot at UBC. You could technically have no research experience and get into med school.

    FAQ: What are my chances?

    Are you just one under for Chem/Phys (125)? If not, you would qualify for Western since you're SWOMEN. You can give a shot at Queen's since they're a black box. You could go for Mac but you need to kill the CASPer.

    Chance me please

    Mac is unlikely since they love high CARS scores. Queen's could be worth a shot. Maybe try for UOttawa? They don't require the MCAT and your GPA would be in your favor. If you're SWOMEN, you meet the cut-off for Western.

    English vs French Stream

    I'm in the same position as you. I think you should apply in the French Stream. You would pretty much be guaranteed an interview with those stats and decents ECs.

    Sat and Canadian student

    U.S and Canadian medical schools will look at your GPA in undergrad. You do not need to do the SAT in order to apply to U.S med schools. The SAT and the MCAT are two completely different exams. One does not correlate to the other. I knew a guy who had an average SAT score, went to a state school and absolutely killed his undergrad (like 3.9+) and the MCAT (510).
  12. SWOMEN will most likely remain the same. Maybe CARS could go up to 126 but I don't see the rest going any higher (maybe Chem/Phys). It is pretty hard to predict if CARS could go down for regular applicants. Kinda like if UOttawa wants to include the MCAT or not.

    Accepted average GPA

    U of T and uOttawa are known for being GPA heavy. U of T's average accepted wGPA was 3.95. uOttawa's is 3.92-3.93 I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong). I think Western's GPA cut off is 3.7.
  14. Wow that's crazy. Do I actually have a decent shot? I swear this french stream is a blessing
  15. How many apply to the french stream at UO?
