  1. Yeah that's what I've done, not expecting a reply any time soon though considering the swarm of covid emails they're probably getting from recent admissions. I think as you said though, my main shot is with queens and western. And perhaps ottawa as well
  2. Thanks for the input! I'm just hoping its not too late to enrol in non degree studies for this year, otherwise I'm looking at 2 years until I can even apply. Also wanting to confirm that schools will actually look at this just like any other year of undergrad
  3. What I figured yeah. I've had this past year off and have been using it to build ECs, but I really should of just been doing a full course load of non degree studies. I honestly didn't realize that was an option for boosting GPA. Edit: however, my science gpa would be higher than the one I mentioned, which is being dragged down by some humanities courses i took for my minor. C+'s/B-'s vs A's/A+'s
  4. I feel that I've probably missed the deadline to apply for fall courses, but I will definitely look into it. If so I guess I'm looking at another 2 years before I can even apply to western etc.
  5. While US would definitely not be my first choice, I figure its still better to end up with debt that you can pay off with the extra years that you're in practice, rather than getting into canada later/never. Also, I definitely thought to count more years towards my GPA calculation I would need to reapply to another bachelors program. Are you saying I can take courses as a non degree student and count those as if they were a fifth year?
  6. Thanks Unfortunately I was an idiot and opted for graduation thinking I would do a masters to help me, and then found out a masters is basically irrelevant to medical schools apps. Do you think I would have much of a shot in the US in my current standing? I figured my GPA would be too low as an international. Tbh I'd have to go into debt for it, but I think it'd definitely be worth it in the end. I just didn't think US was a possibility for me
  7. So basically, I'm in what looks to be a rare, and extremely terrible situation. Essentially, my cGPA at UofT is extremely low (3.1). I had a terrible first year in a specialized math program (like 1.3 terrible), then switched into STEM after taking a gap year. I just didn't take schooling seriously at the time, was going through some stuff. When I came back I started to take things a bit more seriously and got annual GPAs of 3.2, 3.5 and 3.3 for my 1st, 2nd and 3rd years in STEM (1st and 2nd weren't full course loads, since a couple of my classes from my real first year counted towards my new programs). At this point I really lacked any aspirations for the future, really didn't think I wanted to do anything with my degree, and so I never really applied myself. Really kicking myself for this now. Between my 3rd and 4th year of STEM, I did a summer program with a doctor on a bit of a whim and developed something of a passion for the medical field. It was the first time in my life that I'd found something that I really wanted to do. I came back into 4th year and made a perfect 4.0 on OSMAS scale (90%+ at UofT) in all science courses on a full course load. I then wrote the MCAT and scored a 526 (132/132/131/131). So my question is, do I have any chance at any Canadian medical schools, or will my application be thrown out before they even look at any aspect of it? and if not, are there any other feasible options for me (outside of the country)?
