  1. Hi everyone, Sorry I don't know if I'm posting this in the right subforum or not. I figured that it relates to Western so I posted here. I'm currently in 2nd year Med Sci and I'm wondering if I should go into the IMS module for 3rd and 4th year. Is it easier to get a 4.0 in IMS than in the other Med Sci modules? Thank you very much!
  2. I am about to start the Gray unit. I did poorly on the Krajnyk unit, but I did well on all the other units (90+ on all others except the Krajnyk unit). How bad is the exam? Cheers.
  3. Thank you so much to everyone that replied. I feel a lot better about my chances now. I suppose the only thing I can do is just try to ace the rest of 2nd year, as well as 3rd and 4th. Hopefully things work out!
  4. Awesome!!! Well done and thank you for the encouraging words.
  5. Hi everyone, I'm currently in my 2nd year of university. In 1st year, I got only a 3.78 GPA. I screwed up only one course REALLY badly (low 70s), and as a result my GPA plummeted from a potential 3.9X to a 3.78. Everything else was either a 3.9 or a 4.0. Also, in my 2nd year now, I'm doing great in everything, except in Biochemistry I just got a 73 on my midterm. Assuming I get a good mark on my final (not assuming I get anything crazy, like a 95+), I'll end up with a low 80 in the course. Again, my GPA in second year is now getting (potentially) screwed over. My GPA is getting hurt really badly and I need to know if I'm screwed and I should just consider a different path altogether or if there's a reason to keep on going since Canadian medical schools are ultra competitive. If I end up with a 3.8 something cumulative GPA, I don't know if I'll even have a chance at applying to medical schools here in Ontario. Thoughts? Advice? Thank you very much for reading.
  6. Hi everyone, I'm currently getting destroyed in Bio 2290 (methods). I work very hard in this course and keep up with all the tasks that I have to do. However, the marking is so subjective and arbitrary that I get fucked on every quiz and can't ever get anything above an 80. I don't know what to do because I feel like I'm going to get a 75 or something in this course. What should I do? Any way to improve my performance in this course? Thank you.
  7. Hi everyone, Hope I'm not posting in the wrong subforum... I heard Brandl's section and questions on the Biochem 2280A final are very difficult. I was wondering if someone could give tips on how to approach the questions. Are they similar to Haffie's in that they test critical thinking? Thanks!
  8. Hello everyone, I have just finished my 1st year in undergrad. I have a bit of a dilemma with my GPA, because although most of my courses were finished with 4.0s, and a few 3.9s, one of my courses I have finished with a 3.3. I just fucked it up really badly, and couldn't see myself doing well in the course. My GPA without weighting drops to just under a 3.9, whereas with weighting, at U of T I'll have a 3.95 I believe. Some med schools, such as McMaster for example, look at all 4 years of your GPA and don't apply any weighting formulas. I'm curious as to how badly this disadvantages me, and if there's any particular med schools that I should apply to (and any particular med schools that I shouldn't apply to.) I ask because if I have around a 3.86 as my un-weighted GPA, it's quite difficult to bring it back into the 3.95+ range which would make me really competitive for Ontario med schools. Thank you for reading! -musicboy
