  1. I know we must take a full year of physics to meet the requirements for most medical schools in North America, however, I am uncertain of what specifically would satisfy the 2nd part of this requirement at my university. I am currently at Concordia and taking a class called "PHYS204: Mechanics" which is all about newtons laws, forces, energy/momentum etc, which obviously satisfies the prerequisite for what people typically call "Physics 1". However, when it comes to "Physics 2", do I absolutely need to take a physics course that involves Electricity and Magnetism (PHYS 205 at my school) to satisfy the Physics 2 prereq? Or can it be any other physics course w/ lab? For instance, say instead of Electricity and Magnetism, I take something like "Waves and Optics" which is generally considered easier at my University in comparison to Electricity and Magnetism but is still a full-on Physics course with a lab section. Thank you in advance, and hope you're all having a good semester/application cycle.
  2. I just finished my first year with a perfect GPA, but am worried that I screwed up my app since in both the Fall and Winter semesters I had only taken 12 credits (4 courses each semester). If I complete the remainder of my undergrad with 5 courses each semester and make up for the missed credits in the summer session next year, will I be alright when it comes time to apply? (I am not currently taking any summer courses since I am travelling soon.)
  3. Thank you for the advice! However, I am looking to apply to US MD and DO schools as well, and I was told that Prerequisites done in CEGEP are not evaluated by AMCAS or something.. What does this mean? Can I finish Physics 1-2 and Biology 2 at a Cegep like Vanier/Dawson and then still apply across Canada and the U.S?
  4. My Major is actually Film Studies, I'm doing all the pre requisites as electives. I just finished the Math Sequence (Finished up Calculus) and am looking to finish Chemistry and Biology Sequence my second year, with the Physics and Organic (Semester of Biochem) during my Last Year.
  5. I'm currently a first-year student at Concordia University in Montreal, and am looking to satisfy the Biology II w/ Lab during my second year. (Just finished BIOLOGY 1) However, at Concordia, there is no General Biology 2 course w/ Lab, instead, there are 2 separate lecture courses (BIOL 225 and BIOL 226 without labs) that are mandatory prerequisites for a full-on Lab Course (BIOL 227). Essentially, I have to take 9 Credits worth of courses (3 separate classes) to satisfy 1 year of Biology w/lab requirement of Med school. Would it be possible to take Biology 2 w/ Lab in Cegep and have it satisfy my pre requisite for Med School admissions? Also, would courses completed in Cegep be valid for applications outside of Canada? If I were to apply to some American M.D schools for instance, could I show my transcript for a Biology 2 course taken in a CEGEP and have it count? Another alternative I know of is to take BIOLOGY 2 while at Mcgill using the Quebec-University transfer class system, but BIOL 112 (Biology 2 w/lab ) at Mcgill appears to cover some topics that I've already been tested on in BIOL 201 at Concordia. Sorry if this post seems convoluted, any advice/insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated!
