  1. I notice you try to dissuade ppl from meds. Why are you sour about medicine? There is uncertainty with any career pathway you choose, whether it is radiation therapist, social worker, PT, pharmacist, optometry dietician. In fact, a lot of people I know graduating from these fields are more worried about finding jobs and their ability to pay debt and their rents more so than the avg physician/resident. Your thoughts about these jobs are probably inaccurate as well. icdt2018, choose a career based on your interests, and fight for your dreams. But be realistic, and have a back up plan. Few years ago, I knew I really wanted to get into med school, but I was also realistic knowing that my chances were not great, so I also applied to optometry first. I ended up finishing 2 yeas of optometry before getting into med school.
  2. Your chances of getting into any Canadian Med School is lower than 10%, you still have to believe in yourself and try nonetheless.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm a Canadian med student, and I would like to do my residency in the US to be close to my partner. I would like to know what is the process like? What are the hoops that I have to go through? I already wrote my USMLE Step 1 and I scored 254. I'm planning to write USMLE Step 2 in the next few months. What else needs to be done? Can someone share their experience? By the end of med school, I 'm expecting to have 2-3 publications. I don't have any publications from undergrad. I'm planning to apply to primary care residencies ( internal meds or peds). Thank you so much for your time !!
  4. You can get into an Ontarion med school with a low GPA. I highly recommend applying to Mac and Queen's and UWO. I had a GPA close to 3.8 and was accepted to 3 out of the 5 schools I applied to. 2 of these schools were in Ontario .
