  1. I've calculated my wGPA for most Canadian schools, but unfortunately I'm geographically limited to Ontario (family, etc.). At my stage, the non-work related ECs that I currently engage in are either helping with committees, etc. with my current profession's societies (which again is directly healthcare related). I also volunteer my time with one local and one international non-profit organization on a consistent basis. I appreciate your feedback re: the MCAT - I should probably start seriously looking into studying soon!
  2. Hi everyone, I have completed a PhD in a medical engineering type field and currently work at an academic medical center (as a health care professional).
