  1. 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)?

    Doing an exchange during undergrad

    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?

    Doing an exchange during undergrad

    How did McGill Med end up counting the courses you took in Australia?
  5. 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!

    DENT-P 2018

    Non malheureusement, mais jusqu’à maintenant, les gens que je connais qui ont appliqué en dent-p n’ont pas reçu de décisions aussi

    J'ai appliqué en Med-P aussi, mais je n'ai pas encore reçu de décisions pour Dent-P... Est-ce que les gens qui ont reçu une décision de Dent-P étaient tous des invités?

    DENT-P 2018

    I don’t think anyone got an answer from Dent-P yet. If I were to guess, I would say maybe tomorrow as well? There will be some applicants who applied to both Med and Dent who’ll have interview invites for both programs on a specific day so there’s an extremely huge likelihood that Dent has its invite list already as well.

    Countdown to decisions [doomsday]

    Even though the status changed to "Decision Release Date: March 22nd", are the interview items still in your checklist? Also, question for previous applicants, has something like this ever happened before? (i.e. getting an answer and then having it changed back it something like "Decision Release Date: ...")

    They also removed mine... Does anyone know why that is?

    Countdown to decisions [doomsday]

    A little update on my comment. I’m a Med-P applicant and I checked my application at 10AM today and my status read “refused” meaning unfortunately, I didn’t get an invite. Thus, I thought they were sending out the interview invites. However, I just checked again and it no longer reads “refused”. The decision was changed to “Decision Release Date March 22”. So now, I’m confused. Just thought I’d update it here so that the MDCM candidates are aware and aren’t too hopeful about decisions being released Friday. Apologies!
