    What are my chances?

    @premednewbie977 I don't mind you asking! Well the ones I know had English as a first language, but applied to French just to get to the interview easier. However, once at the interview stage you really need to have clear ideas and communication between you and the interviewer is key at that point. Some of them I'm sure would've got in if they chose the English stream instead. Generally speaking, the English stream is a bit riskier since you have more competition, but you should still do it in the langage you're more comfortable with, especially with your stats.

    What are my chances?

    I know people with a cGPA 4.0 that applied to the French stream because it's "easier". However, once they got to the interview part, it did not go as well as they intended. I would definitely say that with a competitive GPA as high as yours you should definitely apply to the langage stream you are most comfortable with. That way you can definitely nail the Casper and interview.

    5th year for GPA?

    It does depend a lot on your ECs as well as your Casper. I'd say that if you're on the strong side for EC and you nail Casper, you don't really need a 5th year. But I've heard of people with lower GPA's then you get in uOttawa (also depends on your stream). Don't give up and keep working hard and you'll get in this year hopefully

    Queen's GPA calculation

    Thank you, that's what I assumed.
  8. Hi, I am from the university of ottawa in the biomedical program and I'm applying to Queen's medical school next year. Does anyone know how I calculate my GPA from uOttawa to Queen's grade scale? I want to have an idea of the GPA I'm applying with. On the Queen's website it says that A+ = 4.3 (90-100%). Therefore, if I have a A+ from uOttawa (90-100% also) do I use 4.3 in my calculation for my A+'s? Or should I use OMSAS's 4.0 for a A+? OMSAS and Queen's GPA scale are just saying different things. Also, when I do apply. Does Queen's only looks at my last 2 years of full time studies and makes a GPA calculation from that, or do they look at my whole undergrad? Thank you so much!!
