  1. I’ll echo what Psych said, but for the hell of it I’ll tell you what tends to work for me anyways lol. I find what works best for me is reading material out loud to myself and then pretending to teach it to someone else by re explaining it in my own way. It forces me to find a way to make the material make sense in my brain and I tend to memorize it easier that way! Sometimes my explanations in my head are stupid and weird but that makes it even easier to remember haha. Not sure if you can apply this in your studies or not but yeah! Good luck
  2. Awesome thanks so much that’s definitely helpful my background is working as an RN on a surgical unit at the Jewish General for a few years now so not sure if that’ll benefit me or not for the lecture material but yeah! Might actually message you if you don’t mind haha!
  3. Hey guys, is there anyone who’s able to briefly describe what a day is usually like in McGill med school, let’s say first year or others too if you can. Like class start and finish for example. Just looking to see how much time would be spent in school/hospital versus home. Obviously there are many factors to be considered, but I’m more or less just curious right now. Thank you!!
  4. Google which medical schools there are in Alberta, check on a map which is the most north, and then spell the name of the city it’s in backwards
  5. I’m by all means no pro at this stuff because I just joined this forum two months ago and haven’t even applied yet lol but from reading previous posts it seems like you have pretty good odds at an interview if you’re IP good luck
  6. Just wondering if anyone who applied to Dawson recently in evening cont ed could tell me how long it took for them to get a response. Thank you!
  7. The last part is related to French Bacc but it’s saying what the passing grade is in each of those places, including for French Bacc. Go check out the info at https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/requirements/requirements-edu/basic-science-prerequisites under conditions for validity of prereqs!
  8. It’s that now you only really have to pass your prereqs, they don’t take your GPA for them into consideration anymore. “ Minimum grades for valid science prerequisites, minimum MCAT All science prerequisites must be passed, and the grade must be equal to or better than the grade accepted by McGill for the purposes of transfer credit/advanced standing/course exemptions, as follows: CEGEP level. 60% or better University level. Grade obtained must be equal to or better than the grade/CGPA required to graduate from that university. Generally this is equivalent to a C or better and is usually found on the transcript. AP courses: 4 or better IB: 5 or better A-Level: C or better French Bacc: Série S 10 or better (undergoing updates August 2020, see https://www.mcgill.ca/transfercredit/prospective/french)”
  9. Thanks guys! All of the comments really helped me understand part of the process a little better. Best of luck to everyone
  10. Definitely! I know this. Again, I’m just curious
  11. Just asking out of curiosity really. Looking to hear from your experiences or people you know of. I’m a bit older (27) so it’d obviously be nice to get in sooner rather than later so just curious how likely or unlikely it’d be
  12. Just looking for information while I wait for them to get back to me. Specifically looking to know if they’re doing science labs remotely (ie biology), and if these are offered for non cegep students (I’m a current uni student). Also if anyone knows if the schedule is out yet for these classes that’d be great too. Thank you!
  13. Cegep would for sure be the better option for me yeah, but do you know who’s offering bio with labs to non-cegep students this fall? COVID really messes up a lot this year. And worst case I think I’d be okay at McGill but it’s risky yeah!! They wouldn’t be considered my electives, they’d be additional courses as I have my electives already
