  1. Hello! I am considering either McMaster Life Sciences or UOttawa Health Sciences with a minor in Life Sciences as a possible premed program. If there are any former or current students at those two programs, please comment your experiences with the program and if you would recommend it to a future student. Any other program suggestions are also welcome Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone. i hope you are all doing fine. i have a question regarding the hidden minimum gpa for successful applicant in the uOttawa french stream. i'am currently in my third year undergrad in biomedical sciences and i'am applying this year to uOttawa. my weighted gpa (using only full time sessions and dismissing summer courses while multiplying my second year x 2) is a 3.8222 gpa. i know that for gatineau residents the minimum for applying is a 3.7 and that is fine. but since there is no available information at all regarding the averages of each years successful applicants or interviewees. i can only speculate upon what my chances are to get an interview. i was told by one of my professors that my chances to get an interview is a 3.822 is 0. so i would like to have some input from anyone in the know, or who is currently in the french stream and knows the lowest gpa in their class or some kind of average. thank you all and sorry for my horrible english.
  3. what are the course requirements to get into university of Ottawa medical school exactly, I am a first year going into engineering as a premed route because i want a solid degree to fall back on if i dont get in. So making my timetable i want to know exactly what i need ? On their website they say " four specific prerequisite courses: 1. one full year course (or two semester courses) in General Biology including laboratory session; 2. one full year course in Humanities or Social Sciences (or two semester courses in separate disciplines; 3. and 4. the equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session." a) firstly what is the difference between a full year course or two semester course? from the looks of this i need 1 biology, 1 Humanities, 1 biochemistry without lab, 1 general chemistry with lab, and 1 organic chemistry with lab. So in in total it comes to 5 courses i need to fit in my schedule? c) Can i take any of these in the summer ? d) what level of classes do i need to take like for the biology credit can i just take biology I first year and that will fulfill that requirement Any help with these questions would be greatly appreciated
  4. Here are my stats for my uOttawa application: Location: OOP (Quebec) Stream: French GPA: 4.0 Research: Summer internship with CRSNG scholarship in gyneco-oncology. Education: Second year university with CEGEP diploma. What are my chances to get an interview?
  5. Hello I live in Montreal and am currently looking to apply at uOttawa in the francophone stream. I have a few questions if anybody would be able to help me. I feel like the site doesnt give enough information. I wrote to the admissions office and was told that the wgpa cutoff for the francophone stream was 3.87. Does that mean if I have a lower wgpa than that (3.65), I will be automatically refused without them looking at the rest of my application supporting documents (autobiography, etc)? Thank you so much for answering!

  8. There isn't much information about the French Casper thread so I thought I'd start one. I'm guessing it's a lot more difficult than the english one since french is wordier and takes longer to type. How do you even prepare for this? Does anyone know how heavily uottawa evaluates spelling and grammar?
  9. How does Casper work? I tried to sign up for it and it says I have to submit my application first. So I submit my application by Oct 1 and there will be Casper dates to sign up for after that?
  10. Hi All, I am wondering if I have a good chance at UOttawa. I have a GPA (3.99-4) for the most recent three years, but I got my bachelor's from Qatar. I have lots of volunteering, but for sure was not in Canada, as I was not living in Canada at this time. I also have a master's degree from ULaval (Quebec). I do not know if I have a good chance or it would be a time wasting to appy as my Bachelor's is not Canadian.
  11. Just wanted to try starting a thread for anyone who might be going to uOttawa this September for OT/PT. I noticed there aren't many of us who are on here but it would be nice to meet a couple of classmates that I'll be seeing next year So excited for September! I also went to uOttawa for undergrad and have lived in Ottawa for most of my life so if you have any questions let me know. I'll answer as best I can I also have a friend who was in PT so if you have any questions about that I'll answer as best I can, too!
  12. I am currently in my third year of undergrad. I had a shaky first year, and mistakenly chose to write the MCAT this summer although I was working at a lab full time. My scores were very discouraging, and for a while my hope of getting into medical school was crushed. I know medicine is something I'd definitely want to pursue; however, I don't know if it is worth applying next year or should I redirect my path to medical school via a masters degree? If my chances of getting in are low, I'd rather not spend next summer studying for the MCAT and instead travel and try something different. My stats are: GPA 1st year- 3.31 2nd year- 3.76 cGPA (without a summer course)- 3.53 cGPA (with the summer course)- 3.6 MCAT ...(24: PS7, VR7, BS10) Extra-curricular Winner of a national and regional science fair in grade 12 of high school Awards for modern languages, and science in high school University Dean's Honour List-2nd year Multiple admission scholarships Research experience in multiple labs Currently doing undergraduate research at the same lab I have been in for two summers now Mentor undergraduate students in physics Volunteer at a hospital for over 2 years Music for over 5 years On the executive team of university club for 2 years Any tips and advice on how I could tailor my application to become a more competitive applicant, or whether I should set my goal on pursuing graduate research would be immensely appreciated!

  15. Hey guys, Just wrapping up my application and was entering in my pre-reqs and had a little confusion on what types of courses count for Humanities and Social Sciences. There are examples on the uOttawa website for sciences, but nothing for the H + SS... http://www.med.uottawa.ca/students/MD/Admissions/eng/description_prerequisite_science_courses.html it states no language courses. I take this to mean no spanish or german language courses where you learn the language or about it specifically. I would think (based on other medical school humanities and SS pre-reqs) that a course like Canadian Literature would count, but am I wrong since its under the English department? Looking for feedback, I need two courses to meet this requirement and I have these 3 I think to choose from but as you can see two are 'English' courses. ENGLISH 100 Composition ENG 222 Literature in Canada DRAMA 272 The Creative Process thanks for any help you can offer guys!
  16. Hello Everyone, I just received my mcat results and I am utterly disappointed I got a measly score of 24: PS 7 VR 7 BS 10... I know that I would definitely have to re-write the mcat but I am having a hard time deciding whether I should book my exam in January so I could still write the old one, or whether I should just spend next summer full-on studying and write the new one. If I write in January I wouldn't have much time to study considering I will be a full-time student with many demanding classes and of course EC's.....What should I do?!? The schools I am interested in applying to next year are: uOttawa, Mac, Queens, Toronto, McGill My stats are: cGPA of 3.56, 2-year GPA of 3.76 All input and advice would be TREMENDOUSLY appreciated!
