  1. Hi everyone. I need some guidance-questions answered. I graduated from UWO with a Bachelor of Science and received a poor GPA. At the time I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life and I did not have an interest in school. I graduated and took a year off. After a year I realized I would give health care a try. I went to College, graduated with a 4.1 GPA in respiratory therapy and am a practicing RRT. I have a great amount of volunteer work, a lot of extracurriculars, I tutor, and work with all age groups currently. Now that I am aware of my potential and have a better understanding of what I want to do with my life, I've made the decision that medical school is what I want to pursue. I am dedicated, determined and disciplined enough for it. I will be writing my MCAT this summer as well. I want to return to uwo because I know the only way Schulich will accept me is with a better GPA. I want to take a second undergrad. Here comes the question: Since I took my first undergraduate degree in biology would I be able to take my second undergraduate degree in something similar such as health sciences? If so, do I simply reapply online through OUAC? I have contacted admissions multiple times and somehow I'm still not getting my questions answered. I want to know if anyone else has taken this route to enter medical school before and if they have any advice. Thanks in advance!
  2. Simpy... I have so many questions for you as your way into medical school is similar to the route I'm taking. New to this site. How can I contact you?
