  1. By next school year, do they mean the entering class of Fall 2020 or Fall 2021? If it's Fall 2020, that's going to be a substantial movement in the waitlist
  2. There's no official minimum requirement score for the CASPer test or a cut-off score but they recently updated their Selection Process webpage to indicate that they may use CASPer test results for prescreening. You can read more about it here: https://mcgill.ca/medadmissions/prospective/selection-process.
  3. Language courses at McGill will have some sort of testing in the first week of classes. If the instructor/TAs find that your level of the language is incompatible with the level of the class, they'll contact you and suggest you go up or down a level.
  4. The number applicants to the MedP program this year has decreased by ~100 from last year yet the number of invites increased to over 300 meanwhile the invites for uni-level applicants decreased by a few spots. Do you guys think this is a new trend or is the increase in interviews due to the Gatineau campus to MedP’s of this year? https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/after-youve-applied/currentapplicantstats
  5. I am retaking a course at Dawson right now, had to apply to cont. education and prove my QC residency status and in the end, one course only cost $195.50, so maybe try Dawson next time (if you're thinking of taking other prereqs in the future)
  6. You said "some" of your science prereqs so does that mean you're taking more than one? And if so, is it $400/course?
  7. I searched through this forum but I wasn't able to find anyone sharing their experience about retaking Option 2 courses at McGill (e.g., BIOL 200, BIOL 201, PHGY 209, CHEM 212/222) to increase their prereqGPA I bombed BIOL 200 pretty bad (RIP) and I just want to know if anyone in previous years has retaken a course at McGill; more specifically, is it even allowed? What's the process of doing so (i.e., would I need departmental/advisor authorization of some sort)?
  8. https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/after-youve-applied/currentapplicantstats The average GPA increased from 3.88 to 3.90 (for IP) and the number of invites decreased for both IP and OOP
  9. That's helpful, thank you! I ultimately decided to apply for exchange in another Canadian province so I don't think the conversion chart will be different but do you know if I'll have the option to disclose my grades from my exchange regardless in case I end up getting good grades?
  10. How did McGill Med end up counting the courses you took in Australia?
  11. Hello, I was just wondering if there are any applicants who went away for exchange during their undergrad? I'm considering applying for exchange to Australia or maybe Europe but I don't know if that would affect my future application to MDCM or not.. I tried searching for prior posts on this forum but nothing recent came up.. Do you guys think doing an exchange would be a good idea? Thanks!
  12. If you're a McGill student, you can download Office 2016 for free by logging in to the McGill email portal
  13. Avant tout, félicitations! D'habitude, la lettre officielle sera envoyée ce soir après 21h, soit après que Minerva ait été mise à jour pour la journée
  14. Non malheureusement, mais jusqu’à maintenant, les gens que je connais qui ont appliqué en dent-p n’ont pas reçu de décisions aussi
