  1. I tried doing what you did and moved the dates back by a year, but it didn't change anything (last time I checked, but I'll try again today). For the first page of the workbook, did you you put your first bachelor and than the second one? I also put all my grades in chronological order, how about you?
  2. Hi everyone!! 1) Did anyone get into McGill based on their second university degree? If so, does having a second degree look bad or less competitive? I only did my second bachelor out of interest and to boost my GPA. On the McGill website it says "Applicants may be considered on the basis of a second, subsequent undergraduate degree (minimum 60 credits)". I am graduating in spring 2021 with all my credits, so no issues there. However, I am just wondering if I will be considered on the same level as applicants with only a first degree. 2) After entering all my grades in last year's the Academic History Workbook, my "Basis of Admission Degree" was not my second bachelor (on the last page of the excel file). Did anyone encounter this problem last year when applying? If so, is the Academic History Workbook GPA just a preliminary GPA but they will look into my full transcript/re-calculate my GPA later on in my application? Thank you
  3. Hi, random question. I thought McGill took GPA and now cote R? I calculated my GPA on the 4.0 scale....do they use cote R for out of Quebec students (I'm from Ontario)? On the website stats it's on the on the 4.0 scale. Just want to confirm.
  4. Bonjour tous le monde! Je suis un étudiant de l'Ontario (mais résident Québecois) et je me demandais comment est-ce que l'UdM fais le calcul du GPA pour l'évaluation du dossier scolaire? J'ai un bac en science que j'ai gradué en 2018, et je finis mon bac en psychologie en 2021. Ma question est la suivante: Est-ce que UdM regarder toutes les notes que j'ai (donc un cGPA de mes deux bac avec toutes les notes que j'ai jusqu'à présent) ou seulement les notes de mon deuxième bac? Je sais par exemple que McGill va seulement faire un calcul du GPA avec les notes de mon deuxième bac, mais comment est-ce que UdM le fais (même question pour Laval et Sherbrooke). Merci!!
  5. Thank you for the help! I will take all of that in consideration
  6. Perfect, thank you so much!
  7. Thank you for your response! Last question I am wondering haha. For the "academic history workbook" it seems that the McGill equivalent cGPA makes a calculation that includes both my bachelors' (ie. all my grades). However, on the McGill website, it says "Applicants may be considered on the basis of a second, subsequent undergraduate degree (minimum 60 credits). However, 45 consecutive graded credits (in a second/alternate bachelor's degree program) must be completed by the November 1 application deadline." I already have more than 45 consecutive graded credits in my second bachelor (I am graduating in June 2021 so no problem there). Is there something that I am doing wrong, or will the cGPA of my first bachelor not be looked at when McGill is assessing my file? Because the cGPA of my second bachelor's degree is 3.94, but that isn't the number I am seeing on the excel file used last year. If you could shed light on it with your knowledge and experience, that would be great!
  8. Ok, I was thinking about keeping a mix of the most recent AND relevant entries that I feel like would be a good plus for medical school. And I see what you mean, so keeping it more to unique things is the way to go. Also, I am not completely sure, but is "bilingualism" something I indicate in the application (ie. when I pay), Minerva directly or should I add it to my "skills and hobbies" section? (I am asking because I am actually trilingual)
  9. Perfect thank you! How many words per entries do you think is too much or too little? Or does it depends on the amount of entries as well at that point?
  10. Thank you! Do you guys have any tips on how to make a good CV. I am trying to make it balanced, and I was thinking about putting 3-4 entries per sections (to not go over the 2 pages). However, how long do you think the description it-self should be? I'm aiming for quality over quantity, but with that mindset I am trying to write a more meaningful description.
  11. Hi everyone!! I am a student from uOttawa and I would just like to know my chances for the McGill medical school. Here are my stats: Year: Graduated June 2018 with a B.Sc. in biomedical science. Finishing second degree (will have it by June 2021). cGPA: With the Winter 2020 grades not counting my cGPA is at 3.937 (anyone know if McGill rounds up?). I am an In-province Quebec applicant. EC's: Long term volunteering at a hospital since 2015 (~600 hours), research lab volunteer, shadowing a emergency physician in the ER, part-time job, private math tutor in high school, general chemistry teacher assistant volunteer during the summer for the past 3 years for high school students, organic chemistry teacher assistant during uOttawa open house week, awards/dean's list and scholarships, awarded the APUO scholarship, volunteer of the month in the emergency department (sep 2018), competitive dancing for the past 7 years+instructor, NSERC summer research scholarship (2x), UROP research scholarship, part-time student mentor for my faculty during the academic year, trilingual. Also, does anyone have any idea how to structure a McGill CV? How many entries should I put per section (i.e. job, volunteering, EC etc)? Please be honest with me!! Thank you all
  12. Hum, I guess just put as much as you can? They can't penalize you if you don't have 3.
