  1. I am not sure if I am calculating my Manitoba gpa correctly but from what I understand for 90 credit hours (which is what I have) you can remove your lowest 15 hours (which is 5 courses at McMaster). If I remove my lowest five courses and convert to the 4.3 scale my GPA is a 4.145. Would you consider this too low?
  2. I don't think I'm eligible for Toronto's wGPA because I only took four courses in my second semester of first year since I withdrew from a course. I ended up redoing the course in second year and getting an A and taking an extra course this year to make it up but I still think I am not eligible. Otherwise that would also make a huge difference (if I'm calculating correctly it would bring me up to a 3.8+)
  3. Thank you so much. What do you mean by new Toronto wGPA?
  4. So you think I should do a fifth year rather than a masters?
  5. I also took an extra course third year winter (winter 2020) so the fact that its not counted at all is just the worst luck
  6. I'm not sure how exactly to reply so I apologize if I am doing this wrong. I appreciate your advice! I will keep this in mind when applying. I am aiming for a high MCAT but I acknowledge that I will most likely to need to rewrite unless I do extremely well. I am FULLY interested in applying OOP if I have a chance and in the US as well. I have parental support financially so while it would not be ideal it is possible. Had I not taken organic chemistry in the Fall 2019 term (my third year, first semester), which I should not have because it was an elective my GPA fall 2019 would have been a 3.925 Bringing my third year grades to a 3.942. I wish I could remove this grade it would change a lot.
  7. Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice. I am entering my fourth year at McMaster earning my B.Sc. Here are my stats converted using OMSAS: 1st year: 3.388 (sem1: 3.3 + sem2 3.5 (only took 4 courses)). 2nd year: 3.73 (sem1 3.62 + sem2 3.84) 3rd year: 3.78 (sem1 3.6 + sem 2 3.96) I know some schools aren't taking winter 2020 anymore:( Had I not taken organic chemistry in the Fall 2019 term (my third year, first semester), which I should not have because it was an elective my GPA fall 2019 would have been a 3.925 Bringing my third year grades to a 3.942. I wish I could remove this grade it would change a lot. 4th year: aiming for 4.0 (only taking electives this year) I know these grades are terrible, especially first year I had a very difficult time mentally. In the semesters that followed I've gotten nearly all As but have always had 1 class a year bring me down significantly. I am hoping to do really well in my fourth year but even then I feel like its not enough. I am taking the MCAT August 15th for the first time. Here are my ECs: Red cross swim instructor, Inclusion Instructor (children with special needs), will be intro psych TA in Fall 2020, 1 year research with department chair and will be continuing next year, volunteer tutoring services, copy editor for undergraduate journal, macchangers team (find solutions for Hamilton community during Covid-19), international buddy (aid international students), volunteer hospital (clinical) around 60 hours, volunteer hospital (administrative/research assistant) around 30 hours, volunteer in cardiology clinic around 200 hours, in hs: dance team, leadership, chaplaincy, volunteer at elementary school 50 hours, volunteer at rec centre 20 hours... I am willing to go to any school in Canada or US MD that would accept me. Do I have any chance with my GPA anywhere? If I do what is the minimum MCAT score you think I need? I appreciate your honesty, opinions and advice. Thank you
