  1. Tried searching the Queens website and found nothing. Western makes it clear that they require at least 3 courses out of 5, per year in the 3rd or 4th years
  2. Long story short: I was not doing well during 1st and 2nd year. My cGPA between the two years were about a 2.4. My 3rd and 4th year cGPA (between the two years) was about 3.92. Do I have no chances at getting into med school? My MCAT was in the 97th percentile, and I have good volunteer, no research experience. Has anybody been through a similar situation? Should I do a Masters degree then apply to med school? I really messed up my first two years, but turned my life around after with help from close friends. I didn't have a full course load during years 1 and 2. Years 3 and 4 had 5 courses each (full course load). What are my options? Any advice is appreciated.
  3. EXT courses are extra courses that don't count towards graduation nor your gpa, but the mark shows up on your transcript.
  4. I've read up on some previous discussions before posting here, but they only mention that Western medical school required 6/10 of your courses to be in your level. I see no other information regarding other Ontario medical schools (UofT, McMaster, Queen's, Ottawa). Thanks!
  5. Hey, all! This is my first post here! I'm in first year life sciences at UofT. I'm deciding if I should transfer to McMaster for life sciences, but I need advice. I know that both are good schools, and are not easy to get a 90 in every class, however, UofT is much more difficult than McMaster from what I hear. Would I be better off if I transferred to McMaster? I feel that I can do well at McMaster and have more time for extracurricular and volunteering. Any thoughts? I expect to finish first year at st. george with a 3.85 cGPA, but have done no volunteer work. Any advice helps.
