  1. Hi all, I'm looking for some advice on prep courses, and more specifically Prep 101's online prep course. I'm a 4th year Psychology BA student from UWO who is planning on writing the MCAT in August/Sept for the upcoming cycle. I've began review with the Kaplan books and have been making my way through the Bio and chem books while supplementing my knowledge with Anki cards that correspond to each chapter. I haven't taken Orgo, Biochem, or physics, but do have some background in bio and chem so this process is a little bit easier. Additionally, because I'm a psychology student, I have a pretty thorough understanding of the psych/soc topics and my CARS knowledge/understanding is pretty decent as a result of lots of reading in the past + extensive undergrad research. The one thing I definitely am concerned about is the science aspect of the MCAT, so I was just looking for some opinions on the Prep 101 course to help me brush up on the science material so that I'm adequately prepared for those sections. I plan on studying all summer, with no other obligations so I'll have lots of free time + I'm somewhat self motivated so I don't think that should be problem. If anyone has any experience with this specific prep course I'd love to hear it, especially for someone without an extensive science background. Additionally, if anyone knows of any discount codes for the prep course that would be greatly appreciated (I've seen them floating around in the past, just unable to find a current one). Thanks :)
  2. So currently I'm in first year of undergrad (I know it's early) and was hoping to weigh out some of my options/alternatives if I don't end up getting in to Canadian schools within 1-3 cycles. Here's a little info about myself: -Currently @ Western -Majoring in Social Work, then hopefully get a MSW (1 year program @ western) -Volunteering in mental health + some other volunteer work -Will finish first year with roughly a 3.7 -Hoping to pursue psychiatry With this in mind, I'm hoping to get some more info on medical schools in Scandinavian countries (Finland, Netherlands, Denmark, etc.) since I wouldn't mind living/practicing there if things go south. So, some questions: 1. Would I need a visa? 2. Cost 3. Chances of getting back into Canada for a psych residency (I know they're already slim for IMGS) 4. Chances of getting back into Canada after practicing for 5-10 years in these countries 5. Years of Med school (I know some schools have 4-6 year programs) 6. Requirements (course wise/MCAT wise) 7. Additional info/extra warnings
