  1. I would personally contact the admissions. At uOttawa we were offered the option to make a class pass/fail and were reminded of the repercussions about some professional degree applications if we chose P/F. On their website it still says that they are keeping their original policies/requirements but may change due to COVID, but apply as if they aren't going to change it.
  2. Okay awesome thank you for clarifying this for me!
  3. From my understanding, yes. I remember reading this somewhere on their website a few years back (I could be completely wrong). The are really focused on ECs
  4. For prerequisites, they just look at what you submit into OMSAS. So as long as you have a B in a class and enter that one on the OMSAS School Submissions tab I think you should be fine.
  5. Getting an interview and getting into medical school is a huge numbers game. Yes, your application is important but there is also luck involved. Even though you are on the low end of the GPA for uOttawa, I still think you should apply.
  6. I emailed about this and this was their response: I wish to inform you the we recommend that all candidates complete the CASPer Snapshot. Please note that beginning with the current application cycle, for admission to the MD program in the fall of 2021, the Admissions Office will calculate a cumulative grade point average (cGPA).Please visit our website at the following address https://med.uottawa.ca/undergraduate/admissions Thank you for your interest in our MD Program.

  7. I also agree with this. Remember that they are cutoffs, not used competitively.
  8. From my understanding, it would have to be the summer following your 5th year, or maybe the one before? Any answers you get here would be speculation so it may be better to contact GradMed to get a correct answer.
  9. You can only register if you have already submitted your OMSAS application!
  10. From my knowledge, as long as you supplement that course during the summer that you missed in your first semester you should be okay! I have a lot of friends that did a similar thing (Biomed at uOttawa) and they got interviews/accepted. If you want to be 100% sure its okay, I would contact the admissions office. Also, IF they do say your first year is ineligible (I don't think they will), once you finish your 4th year your 1st year won't count anymore because uOttawa only looks at your 3 most recent years.
  11. Check out SquareOne insurance! Thats who I use.
  12. I think it would be best to email the faculty directly. They are usually really good at responding quickly and that way you will have the most accurate information.
  13. I also agree that Astroff helped. I thought their tests were fairly similar to what to expect for the actual test. People say read Doing Right but I don't find it helped me much. I think if you have common sense and are able to articulate why you would choose one option over the other then you should be set.
  14. I am pretty sure it says max 18 in total so if you don't have 3 then just put whatever you have there.
  15. I would email the administration about this question because they would be able to give you the most accurate answer.
