  1. Hi all! My name is Christopher and I am the author of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca which I know a few of you have found to be a useful resource for your premed journey. This summer a classmate and I have been busy working on a new podcast called Pluripotent Premed which we intent to act as an audio guide for navigating the premed years as a Canadian applicant. We dive into all topics related to the MCAT, med school interview, extracurriculars, and more. We will also be interviewing classmates of ours who are got into med from alternative backgrounds (e.g. arts, nursing, other careers) and also those who are pursuing an M.D./PhD to give you a better idea of how the program works and what to expect. Today is the release date for 'Episode 0', which is an introductory episode that doesn't have any specific premed content, but rather just introduces us and the podcast, and what to expect. From here on out, we will release an episode every Monday. If this sounds like something that you're interested in, please check us out on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and on podcasting platforms (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, and most other major podcasting platforms). I will post an episode release schedule in the comments so that you know what episodes are coming up! I will post an episode release schedule below so that you know what episodes are coming up! Thanks for reading! We are really excited about this project and we hope to help as many people as possible. Please feel free to message me on here or on our Facebook page if you have any questions! TL;DR - the author of Ultimate Premed Package has teamed up with a classmate to make a premed podcast directed at Canadian premeds to guide you through the MCAT, interviews, and more. Episodes every Monday
  2. Hey guys, Does anyone know schools like McGill would consider my second undergrad is it is not fully done ? (like only a few courses left). Thanks!
  3. Hi, I did my Casper test not too long ago. During the 15 minute break they give while doing the exam, I started talking to my sister about the questions I had been asked so far and she was in the other room next to me. I think she was in the webcam frame during the break. Do you guys think that it could affect my score on the exam or that they might consider it cheating? Thank you! _____ Bonjour, J'ai fait mon examen Casper il n'y a pas très longtemps. Pendant la pause de 15 minutes à laquelle on a le droit durant l'examen, j'ai discuté avec ma soeur à propos des questions qui m'avaient été posées. Je pense aussi qu'on la voyait dans la webcam durant la pause. Pensez-vous que ça aura un impact sur ma note ou que ça soit considéré « tricher »? Merci!
  4. I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
  5. Well well well, May 10th has officially been declared as this year’s UBC Med D-Day! I thought to start our discussion thread so the nerves and doubts and excitement can officially be discussed as we inch closer to the beginning of the end (for the cycle!) and possibly the beginning of a new beginning. Here’s our official live countdown: https://www.arewethere.yt/OFFICIAL-D-DAY-2019/100157.htm
  6. Salut, je viens d'être accepter en nutrition à UdeM. Cependant mon goal ultime serait d'aller en médecine, mais je n'ai pas les notes nécéssaires en ce moment. Est-ce possible d'utiliser ce programme de nutrition comme pont, pour augmenter ses notes et ainsi avoir une meilleur chance d'être accepté en médecine après ?
  7. Hello, I am a long time lurker, and this is my first post. I was wondering if my fellow Ontario comrades that got interviews/invites could please give me some tips! Also, I have the following stats, I would really appreciate some feedback and perhaps recommendations on certain schools that fit my experiences/scores: 516 on the MCAT (129/128/130/129) 3.8 GPA (Perfect GPA last 2 years) ECs: Lots of volunteering at a hospital in patient care (300+ hours) 2 publications with a neurosurgeon as a 3rd author Spent the majority of my undergrad playing varsity tennis at Western University The remaining time was spent teaching special needs students with a company in my community and coaching tennis (paid). Did a few outreach clubs and have exec positions here and there, but nothing too serious outside of teaching, sports, and research. Lots of awards by the university and province for tennis, high class standing awards, and a bunch of smaller things. I have NO SHADOWING experience, given it isn't emphasized in Canada but please recommend if I should do that to improve my app. Please recommend what I should emphasize on my app, what schools to apply to/focus on, I am a newbie with applications as I am in my 3rd year. Also, if there's something missing or how I can improve my app. Also also, do I have a chance in American MD schools with my ECs? All opinions welcome!
  8. Salut, J'ai complété un bac en biochimie a UDEM (fini en 2017). Mon GPA était de 3.358/4.3 (pour 91 crédits) et ça m'a donné 32.919 de CRU. Si jamais dans le futur ça pourrait donner une idée aux gens qui postuleront en médecine avec un bac de biochimie (car je n'ai pas beaucoup trouvé de thread sur la CRU de biochimie). J'ai quelques questions si vous aurez la gentillesse de me répondre 1. Est ce que cette CRU serait approximativement la même pour un autre programme d'étude (comme nutrition)? 2. J'étais vraiment étonnée de ma CRU car je m'attendais à moins et je commencais à abandonner la médecine. Mais là ça me revient, et je pensais faire un second bac pour augmenter ma CRU. Pensez vous qu'avec un bon GPA (minimum 3.8) dans un programme bien coté (genre biomed), ma CRU pourrait augmenter à 34 dans le futur? Merci d'avance pour vos réponses
  9. Hey, I'm a Canadian premed student who's currently in a bit of a pickle. I'm considering dropping a course in which I have received a mark of 81% on the first midterm, but am anticipating a somewhat lower mark (~60 ish?) on the second midterm, though there's no valid evidence that I would necessarily achieve such a low mark, apart from the empty feeling in my stomach recalling myself winging a somewhat highly weighted question. On the flipside, it seems that many students had a similar experience on the second midterm, so my reluctance to drop the course stems from the notion that there might be some sort of grade curve. There are additionally occasional quizzes which I anticipate I can achieve relatively high grades in to somewhat alleviate the low midterm grade. I would just like to ask you if you believe it is worth dropping this course - or if I should just stick with it and maintain my 5 course workload for this semester? Thanks in advance.
  10. Bonjour, Je suis étudiante à l’UdeM en kinésiologie. J’ai obtenue une CRC de 31,419. J’ai appliquée en DMD à udem et ulaval, même si j’ai presque aucune chance de me faire accepter. J’ai un GPA de 3,6 - 3,7 (je ne le sais pas encore) avec 12 crédits. Question 1 : Quelle est approximativement ma CRU, ET j’ai besoin d’un GPA de combien pour augmenter mes chances? Question 2: C'est quoi la CRU du dernier admis pour l'automne 2018 en DMD à ulaval et udem? Question 3: Si je reste en kin, je ne peux plus abandonner de cours si je n’ai pas de bonnes notes dans les premiers examens. Me conseillez-vous de changer pour un programme où je peux abandonner des cours (bio par exemple)? Merci guys!
  11. Hey guys, I'm at a cross-road for where to go if I want to continue the dream of getting into med school. I really goofed up my first couple years leading to an ~3.4 GPA after 6 years (5 years of BioSci and 1 year Psyc minor). The last 2-3 years were decent with a respective 3.6, 3.96, 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately I can't seem to get over the MCAT hump having written 3 times with a 500, 501, and 502 scores. The last one (502) had a 126 in CARS so I decided to apply to UofC and UofA being from Alberta (although definitely not holding my breath). I have very good ECs including fluency in 3 languages, lots of travel experience, and varsity soccer for what it's worth. I've all but given up on the Canadian dream and deciding what my best shot is for med school with hopes of returning back after I'm done. The choice is between USDO, Australia, and Ireland and from the numerous threads I've read so far, it seems like Australia has the slight edge over the others due to the fact that they give MD degrees as well as residency if I am unable to match back to Canada. So I want to get some advice on what you have all found. I'm biased in that I don't want to travel a full day across the world to Australia especially if I'll need to make that commute several times for blocks in order to establish networks here for a possible return. This other thread made USDO sound equivalent to the Australia and Ireland IMG path but that sounds too good to be true. I feel there is bias against USDO degrees rather than USMD or degress from Ireland/Australia. I'd obviously love to stay within North America but I want to maximize my chances of matching. If it helps, I'm aiming for family medicine which is supposedly the least competitive anyways. TLDR: With a 3.4 cGPA and 502 MCAT, what would you do if you were me? USDO/AUS/IRE??? Thanks!
  12. Hey all this is my first post ever so I'm sorry Stats: annual / cGPA 1st year: 2.73 / 2.73 (1 semester with 4 courses) 2nd year: 3.08 / 2.91 (1 semester with 4 courses) 3rd year: 3.79/ 3.21 (1 semester with 4 courses) currently in 4th year and I'm estimating 3.8+/ cGPA3.35~ 2 years of research, volunteer and community stuff Option 1: take a fifth year of easy-ish courses to boost my GPA --> even if i get straight As prolly won't be competitive enough for canada ~3.47 Option 2: take a fifth year --> fulfill 1 year of physics and 1 year or gen/orgo chemistry for US med school (the problem with this is I go to U of T... it's nearly impossible to do well in these courses) Option 3: graduate this summer with ~3.35 --> take the 2 physics and chem courses to fulfill US med schools as a non-degree student at u of t or another university Option 4: graduate this summer --> take the US prerequisites online while completing a masters OR graduate after the fifth year and then take the US prereqs while completing a masters.
  13. I know this question is asked by countless members on this forum, but I am currently in a rut. I am currently a U of Saskatchewan student (Canadian) and would like advice regarding premed as I am currently dealing with a low gpa for my first and second years of my degree. My gpa calculations are as followed (OMSAS) 1st and 2nd year: 3.00 gpa (73 and 72) (1 semester with 4 courses) 3rd year: 3.9 (86) First semester of 4th year: 3.7 (84.2) If I finish with a 86 overall in my fourth year, I calculate that I will still only have a 78 percent which is too low to be competitive in Canadian med schools. At this point, I don't know what would be the best thing to do as I am almost done my degree I hope to do the mcat during the summer of 2019 I have been doing volunteering at a student run clinic, but am searching for other opportunities to volunteer in. (any advice on what I ec's I should do would be appreciated!) Thank you guys in advance and do let me know if I need to clarify!
  14. Salut! Je voulais savoir que si je ne suis pas accepté en med après mon cégèp, faut-il prendre un bac pour faire une autre admission? Puis si oui, est-ce que les uni vont regarder à ma CRC ou ma CRU? Ma deuxième question est si je peux faire une admission à un autre programme de doctorat après mon CÉGÈP. Disons que je veux faire une admission à med dentaire ou pharmacie, is it vraiment legit?? c'est un cheminement vraiment différent que celle de l'Ontario (Je suis un élève de l'Ontario qui déménage au Québec bientôt donc je ne sais pas autant à propos du Cégèp que je croyais). Merci beaucoup!!
  15. Hi all, I'm a 1st time poster who like some of you has been in university for quite some time now... I started out taking a BSc in 2011 (taking me 5 years) and received atrocious marks. I pushed through, graduated and took a year off to recollect. That year off has done WONDERS and I am now in my second year of nursing achieving about a 90% avg in my studies (still taking full credits every semester). I've enjoyed what nursing has offered me, however I wondered if there was any inkling of a chance of me getting into a med school. I searched through this website and found a forum (most recently updated in 2012) which outlined the policies that each med school in Canada had for students applying with a second undergraduate degree. Because I have always lived in BC, I would apply as an OOP student (with a second degree) to as many that I could be eligible for. According to the 2012 forum I believe my best bet would be applying to U of Saskatchewan (UBC doesn't really offer any revised gpa calculation with a second degree...). I was hoping to make a revised one and if anyone has any extra information on this topic, it would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks for reading!

  17. Hi, I'm currently a Sec 5 student in a French High school and it is time for me to make an important decision : choose the right cegep for me. I'm hesitating between 2 CEGEPs which are Bdeb and Vanier. As a student, I have an overall average above 90s, and I really want to enter medschool at McGill. However, it is easier said than done. To make it happen, I need to work really hard during the 2 years at CEGEP and so I am being careful about choosing the right one for me. What I'm looking for in CEGEP is a great experience, an environment in which I'm productive and students that are serious and focused on their studies. I find it motivating to have around me people that make a lot of effort to reach their goals. Also, both CEGEPs are close to where I live, so the distance doesn't really matter. The language does matter because according to my parents, it's better for me to switch from French to English during CEGEP than during University. Nevertheless, I cannot simply choose a CEGEP because of its language. According to your experiences or what you heard about these CEGEPs, which one would be the right one for me? Thank you
  18. Salut à tous ! Je me pose la question car il semble que peu de gens soient dans mes chaussures. Je suis un joueur de foot au cégep qui à décidé de faire son cégep en 2 ans plutôt que 3, car j'avais McGill et l'oeil et puis les études en médecine sont déjà assez longues comme ça, vous en conviendrez :p Ayant terminé ma première année, je dois avouer que le sport a une assez forte incidence sur ma cote R, qui n'est pas ce que je souhaiterais qu'elle soit. Je sais d'avance que je n'appliquerai pas avec une cote R supérieure à 34, aussi donc j'ai oublié mes espoirs de rentrer directement en médecine. Pourtant, je sais que McGill offre une certaine reconnaissance dans le processus d'admission pour les étudiants-athlète. Ça me laisse un peu d'espoir... mais partout ailleurs (Udem, Udes, Ulaval) je n'ai rien trouvé concernant un traitement "particulier" en ce qui concerne les étudiants-athlètes. Je me demandai donc si c'est complètement ignoré, et s'il y a parmis vous des gens dans ma situation qui peuvent m'éclairer ? Merci !
  19. Hi Everyone! A little while ago I made a post asking whether a 5th year would benefit me more than a Masters would in my pursuit of med school. I have been looking into what a fifth year would look like for me (Currently in health sciences at Western) and a counselor had told me that next year I would be registered at a "Special Student". I would technically graduate this year since I satisfied all of my degree's criteria but I could come back with this new status. I have never heard of this new status as a special student before and was wondering if med schools do in fact consider this in their GPA weighing. Can anyone confirm that this adds to my GPA? I don't want to spend a year and $7,000 only to find out that medical schools dont even consider that year. Thanks!
  20. Bonjour , Cela peut sembler banale, mais j'aimerais vous demander (sans être indiscrète) quelles sont vos habitudes d'étude pour atteindre des 4.0 et + sur 4.3 dans les domaines en santé. Étudiant avant en ingénierie, je rentre en kinésiologie l'an prochain et j'aimerais prendre cette opportunité pour améliorer ma façon d'étudier( qui convient mieux au monde de la santé) pour ainsi changer en ergo par la suite, mais je ne sais trop par où commencer . Je vous remercie sincèrement pour vos réponses.
  21. Bonjour, j'aurais des questions concernant une meilleure stratégie de parcours pour améliorer mes notes pour me réorienter en santé (plus précisément en ergothérapie ), et ce, peu importe dans quel université au Québec (peut-etre aussi ailleur au Canada mais plus au Québec) . J'ai fini mon dec en science santé il y a 2 ans avec une cote r égalant 30.252 . Le probleme est que, ne sachant pas trop quoi faire à l'époque, je suis allé faire une année à Polytechnique où j'ai accumulé une gpa de 2.15/4.0 avec 23 crédits de fait. J'ai quand même appliquer cette annee dans l'espoir d 'être prise, mais vu mon premier refus à uqtr, je me dit que le reste c'est mort. Donc, pour récupérer le tir, je suis en train de faire des études libres et j'ai aussi appliquer pour l automne 2018 dans d'autre programmes dans le buts de remonter mes notes. Donc, d'un point de vue stratégique, je ne sais pas quel programmes est le plus effectifs entre un mineure en art et science, bac en psycho ou bac en kinésiologie pour augmenter mes notes. Honnetements, j'ai plus de facilité en psycho mais j ai lu plusieurs posts sur le site qui ne le conseille pas.Pour kinésiologie, vu comme ça , je ne sais pas si c est difficile de performer. Pour ce qui est de la mineure art et science, je ne sais pas si elle est vrm effective, mais ma conseillere m a dit que oui, mais j aimerais savoir si il y a des gens qui y sont deja passé par la. Je sais que j'ai merder en allant à poly, et la contrainte du temps me fait peur ( j'ai 21 ans). Donc si quel qu un aurait des conseille a donné , ce serait genial. Merci d'avance.

  23. Bonjour, Je suis une étudiante qui fera bientôt son entrée au Cégep. Je voudrais savoir s’il serait possible d’avoir des conseils pour pouvoir booster sa cote R et en avoir une dans les alentours de 36/37. Je suis présentement dans une école avec un programme international (ib) et j’ai une moyenne général de 94%. Je suis aussi très forte en maths (100% de moyenne) et dans le volet théorique en physique/chimie (95% dans les deux). Est-ce que si je continue à faire les mêmes efforts, je pourrais maintenir mes moyennes et rentrer en med? Hi Im a student who’s soon going to college. I would like to know if you had any tips that can help me to have a cote R aroud 36/37. Im now in highschool in an IB program. Im also really strong in maths (100% in my report card) and in chemestry/physic (95% for both of them in the theorical part). If i continue to give the same effort, would i have a chance to maintain those grades and go to med?
  24. Bonjour! J’ai fait une technique au cegep et j’ai eu 32 de cote R (avec l'ajustement). Présentement, en complément de formation j’ai 4,225 pour les 12 premiers crédits et je compte reproduire ça (ou mieux) pour les 12 derniers cette session. J’ai donc quelques questions: 1.Je ne me suis pas inscrit en Med vue qu’on m’a dit que uniquement les 12 premiers crédits en automne allaient compter pour l’inscription, est-ce que j’ai bien fais ? ou ceux de ma session d'hiver auraient compté aussi ? 2. Selon vos expériences, si à la fin de mon année complémentaire j'ai 4,225 pour les 24 crédits, est-ce que la proportion entre ma cote r et ma cote z sera assez bonne pour passer les entrevues de med? 3. Si j'ai la cote pour les entrevues, qu'elle est selon vous la meilleure solution, je fais quoi ? Est-ce que faire une session de bac en automne et une autre en hiver durant les inscriptions va détruite toute mes chances de faire mon inscription comme cégépiens? ou est-ce que l’école va prendre en compte que à la fin de l’hiver 2018, mon dossier comme cégépiens était bon pour med ? est-ce qu'une autre école que udem fonctionnerait ? ou avez vous d'autre options/infos ? 4. Poser la question c'est peut-être y répondre, mais ai-je des chances de renter en médecine en cours de bac, quel type de parcours ou de dossier scolaire faut-il avoir pour réussir à changer en cours ? J'avais prévu rentrer en BioMed en automne 2018 à temps plein vue que ça m'intéresse si médecine ne fonctionne pas, mais disons que ça serait un peu décevant d'avoir les notes pour faire les entrevues de médecine à la fin de la session d'hiver mais de devoir faire 3 ans de bac avant de pouvoir espérer essayer de faire les entrevues parce que je ne me classe pas pour l'inscription de janvier 2019. Par contre j'ai pas prévu non plus de rien faire pour la session d'automne et d'hiver! surtout que ça serait 1 an de perdu dans le cas ou ça fonctionne pas! Merci d'avance pour vos réponses !
  25. Hey all, New to this forum (lurker for the past 6 months :p) I'm currently doing my 2nd semester (of 1st year) at Western (UWO) in their Medical Sciences Program. For now. First semester was NOT a smooth transition for me, I really found myself lacking behind and having trouble keeping up (marks below). I ultimately had to drop a course so I will finish the year with a 4.5 course load but the program needs 5.0 course load. Which basically means I'm going to be dropped from the program, which to be honest I'm not concerned about. I would drop into Gen Science but the first two years are the same for both programs nonetheless so I would just apply in 3rd year to get into Med Sciences again. But I'm looking into the Neuroscience module (its an early module so I'd apply this year to start for 18/19 school year). I'm concerned beacuse as I mentioned, my marks are NOT great. I am looking into Med School as a career but I dont see how it would be feasible after this horrendous year. I have 3 midterms over the next two weeks, I'm confident for the one on This Friday, the other 2; I'm already behind so I'm trying to catch up in time. Even with all this crap, I still try to stay involved in the community for EC wise beavsue I geninely enjoy it and I'm also in a research lab, where theres not many first years I know of doing research already. I'm applying with my PI for a summer funding program which idk if I'll get with my marks. Any advice to turn around this semester and just in the future for my UG? I find myself sitting in the library for 6-7 hours but I dont do anything, I spend ALOt of time on Facebook or on my phone even though I know it's hurting my studying If anyone can PM or just help me figure it out, I would LOVe your response. Thanks guys 1st semester Chemistry - 77 (3.3) Physics- 73 (3.0) Biology- 81 (3.7)
