  1. Generally speaking, no slack given to applicants with engineering backgrounds. However, if you completed the 'typical' engineering course-load (5 or 6 courses per semester), some schools will remove your lowest year, lowest courses, or some variation of this, which can help bring up your GPA. If you post your breakdown by tem (1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, etc.), we will be in a better position to help you. In terms of ECs, don't worry about having specific healthcare related activities. Schools don't care. I applied without any 'typical' premed/healthcare ECs and received 2 interviews this cycle. Feel free to reach out to me, I'm happy to help a fellow engineering graduate.
  2. For anyone outisde of Ontario - some courses are still being offered, it might be worth contacting local providers. I was able to sign up for a course in July, and was told that courses have not been cancelled during COVID-19 at any point
  3. For sure some people have no clue what they are doing (aka they may not even be eligible to apply) but I believe they are a very minuscule part of the applicant pool. For example, UCalgary medicine published stats (Number of Submitted Applications: 1707, Number of Complete Applications: 1553). I think what you are describing is less likely to happen outside of Quebec since the whole process is so demanding, time consuming, expensive, etc. that most people that end up submitting applications are very much qualified. Just my two cents.
  4. Quand même... ils reçoivent un nombre ridicule de demandes par place. McMaster 4000+ demandes pour ~200 places, uOttawa 4000+ demandes pour ~160 places, etc.
  5. J'ai appliqué à l'extérieur du Québec (avec succès), tu peux me contacter en privé si tu veux en savoir plus sur mon expérience.
  6. I did my undergrad in Chemical Engineering, currently working as an EIT, and was accepted to medical school this year. Feel free to PM me if you want to chat. Just a comment, not all engineering jobs entail working behind a cubicle all day, I wouldn't discount the entire field based on this misconception. Short answer: cGPA: 3.88 wGPA: 3.89 to 3.94 depending on the school MCAT: 510
  7. I don't think so, you would only need to submit transcripts for grades that were not finalized in October when we initially submitted transcripts (i.e. Fall and Winter semesters if you were taking courses)
  8. Result: Accepted Stream: French wGPA: 3.89 CASPer: must have been alright - wrote it once in English and once in French ECs: mostly work related. minor volunteering. honestly not great Interview: Came out thinking it went really well, and slowly but surely convinced myself it was trash. Year: Graduated 2018 - first time applying, currently working full time in unrelated field
  9. Result: Regrets Geography: IP GPA: 3.94 wGPA MCAT: 510 Degree: B.A.Sc. Engineering E.C: Mostly work related. Minor volunteering. 5/17. Interview: Thought my interview was absolute trash. No surprise here. Thoughts: Disappointed, but oh well, accepted elsewhere.
  10. June 30, 2020Deadline for OMSAS to receive your final transcripts. I have asked for alternative arrangements, and they have not gotten back to me... you can't even call them since they are working from home so not sure what to do.
  11. As COVID-19 has made rapid and unexpected changes to our lives, including the winter academic session, we are monitoring the situation closely. All Universities are currently working on developing new processes and alternative assessment methods for their learners, in order for them to complete their courses and/or program as intended. We will be revising our policies as needed. For the time being, we recommend that you keep in touch with the University of Athabasca, as they provide further details on their process. Response from uOttawa

  13. If anyone in Fort Mac is interested in practicing in person the week of March 9th, please send me a message
