  1. I finished my undergrad in December and I'm continuing my research at McGill. I am considering to retake the MCAT this summer. Given that I hopefully get a better MCAT score, I want to ask your opinion on the idea of starting medical school in Malaysia while re-applying to Canadian, Australian and other medical schools? If I were to re-apply while starting med in Malaysia, would I mention that I'm in Malaysia already, or should I not mention it at all? Or would I be in another category to people who aren't in med school already? The logic behind this is that if I don't get accepted into med in Canada a third time, then at least I would have already finished a year of medicine at Malaysia. Is this the wrong kind of mentality?
  2. I applied to UofT, McMaster, Queens, Western, Ottawa, NOSM, McGill, Dalhousie and Memorial. My MCAT is 515 ( chemphys 132, CARS 125, Bio 129, psycsoc 129). I applied to the Ontario schools in 2017/2018 cycle in year 3 of undergrad cause I didn’t have the prerequisites for the others, then I applied to all the above this application cycle once I’ve finished my undergrad. I haven’t gotten any more interviewa from any of them and UofT is the only one I haven’t heard from yet. I’ve been doing research in a lab for a year and getting papers published. My non-academics are good, I’m the president of a mcgill club, I’m always helping out at my church, I volunteer at the Montreal general hospital, I’ve done medical aid trips in the past, i dance and i play the guitar. I’m thinking maybe it’s the CASPer exam? Or is there something I’ve mentioned that is obviously wrong that I’ve overlooked?

  4. I wanted some peoples opinions on a situation that I am in. I've applied to medical school twice in Canada and have never gotten an interview. I have a cGPA of 3.90, an MCAT score of 515, I am a Canadian citizen and I have recently finished my Bachelor's at McGill University. I have recently been accepted to a British MBBS program at Newcastle University Medicine (Malaysia). I wanted to ask people's opinions on whether it would be more beneficial for me me to get started with medicine in Malaysia now and eventually go through equivalencies and work in Canada or should I find a job or apply for a masters in Canada and re-apply to medicine here? My life is here in Canada, but I also want to be a physician. Staying here will not guarantee that I get a place in a Canadian Medical school later on, but going to Malaysia doesn't guarantee I'll be able to come back either. Any advice? Thank you in advance!
