  1. So I got this invitation from McMaster in the mail. It seems to offer some opportunities in volunteering, networking, community work, etc. I'd imagine the scholarships are next to impossible to get though. Is it worth joining or having golden key listed on a med school application (membership fee one time $95)?
  2. Hello everyone, I just finished first year in Life Sci at McMaster with a 3.91 GPA and various extracurriculars and volunteering experiences, and have just started some research. I'll be going into biochem next year, and am not sure if I am in a good position or not to think about taking the MCAT in the summer after 2nd year, to apply to some medical schools in Ontario for 3rd year. What would you guys consider "enough" to warrant spending money on 3rd-year applications?
  3. Hello, So I am a prospective student who may soon accept my offer to McMaster's Life Sciences program! I'm looking for any information that you guys/gals can give, such as the competitiveness of the environment, opportunities for research, professor approachability and availability, quality of teaching, marking on curves, general difficulty, how you found Mac overall, and just your feelings about the program and your own personal experiences in striving towards professional programs such as medicine and dentistry. Do you feel as though Mac Life Sci adequately prepared you for post-graduate programs? Are there any other programs you recommend? Additionally, how many in your year in life science do you think/know went on to professional programs? If it helps, my high school average currently is 93.5%, and the major I am interested in is Honors Molecular Biology and Genetics! Thanks!
