  1. Here is my unusual path to graduation (I don't know if GPA is calculated in the same way over all schools): Year 1: UBC - General Science GPA: 3.75 (had to calculate myself, my average was 81.14%) Year 2: Université de Montréal - Neuroscience GPA: 2.055 Years 3-5: Université de Montréal - Computer Science GPA: 3.41 I would like to apply to medical school after my Master's (most likely ending in 2022), but I'm currently unsure where my best options lie. I realize that currently, my portfolio is not comptetitive. I would like to know if it can be made competitive, without doing a second bachelor's. Should I aim for Alberta schools in order to take advantage of my residency, and Quebec schools since the reserved out-of-province spots may have fewer applicants per spot? Should I get Quebec residency, as I have heard that their system is less competitive overall? Thank you in advance. Quick facts: I am currently on a gap year, starting a Working Holiday Visa abroad in November. In 2020/2021 I am planning to start a Master's in Artificial Intelligence, and I could try to focus my research on medical applications. I took 4 courses per semester in my CompSci degree. I did 1 research internship on autonomous vehicles, and 1 industry internship in industry. I am an Alberta resident, but could gain Quebec residency by working there for 1 year. I speak English and French fluently. For some schools, I am missing courses, for example, a second English course and Organic Chemistry. I believe I could get high grades on these courses were I to take them in preparation for applying. I have not taken the MCAT, but I would have time to study for and take it this fall. I have done some volunteer work, but none medical since second year. I was Vice President of a university cultural association for 4th and 5th year.
  2. Hi there, I am starting at the University of Alberta in the fall to study Occupational Therapy. I am from Ontario and won't know anyone when I move to Edmonton at the end of August, so I have been looking for a somewhere that current OT students at UofA could tell me what the program is like, or where would be a good area to live in Edmonton - and where other new students looking for roommates could connect. Please comment if you have any advice, or if you will be joining me at the University of Alberta for occupational therapy!
  3. I am feeling really torn between Western and U of A for OT and I am running out of time to decide. I would love to hear opinions from a number of people in order to get a more representative sample of the student experience.
  4. Hello! I figured a new thread should be started for the 2018 applicants/class of 2022s. Since this is about a month late, I'm sure you all know that the LOI and Pharmacist Consultation Form has been posted for this cycle, but here's the link anyways: https://www.cms.ualberta.ca/pharm/programs/undergraduate-bsc-in-pharmacy/prospective-student/admission-requirements. Best of luck to all, and I (and I'm sure other pharm students will bounce into this thread) am always willing to answer whatever questions I can!
  5. Hi Everyone, As the MMI comes nearer I was wondering if people who have given it in the past or who are planning to give it can share what their experience was like and what kind of mindset helped them to approach it. Also what makes Alberta's program unique? Why have you applied there (Apart from convenience of location) Andddd... which location have you applied to and why? I look forward to hearing from and engaging with all of you <3 Thanks
  6. I'm thinking about possibly moving to Alberta this year if my interviews don't work out so that I can apply as an in-province applicant. My family seems to think that it would be very beneficial as their cutoffs for in-province applicants are a lot lower than what they have for out of province students. Part of me agrees because then I'd be well above the cutoffs....but it's scary. Would it really be worth it? Would it greatly improve my chances? Has anyone else done something like this before? Has it helped? Just some background, I've got a cGPA for Alberta sitting at 3.86, a 513 MCAT (128 CARS), and I think good ECs. Applied to Alberta and several other schools this year as an OOP but still waiting for interviews. Thank you so much! I appreciate any input.
  7. Hey there, Just wanted a little insight on Alberta/Edmonton/Calgary as a whole. Being from Toronto, don't have much experience about it other than the fact that its freezing cold lol. How do you like the cities? How is the cost of living, weather, social life/people, activities, enviorment, etc. compared to Toronto/Vancouver. Cheers, Richard
  8. Premed! Are you struggling with your medical school interviews? Have you been previously rejected after the medical school interviews? Do you want to turn your interview rejections into admissions? I get it. When I applied to medical school the first time around, I had 5 interviews, but was rejected by all 5 schools. Sad ad depressed, I was lost how to to turn that around. However, I came up with a specific approach to interviewing for medical schools. Using that same approach, I again had 5 interviews the following year. The difference is that this time, I got into all 5 medical schools. Since then, I have created the NextMD Community, and the group of medical students and doctors have used this exact same method to help many premed students that have struggled with their interviews turn rejections into admissions, and they are all on their way to become doctors. So if you say YES to any of the questions about, then check out the NextMD Community, check us out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/978669245641167/ For more information, check us out at: http://www.nextmd.ca/training BOOK: If you are down to learn the system we have come up with RIGHT NOW, and you are someone who loves to learn through reading, access the book here: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DFGHZ8S We offer the following programs: A. Self Study: 1. The MMI Mastery Method Online Course: http://www.nextmd.ca/training 2.

One-on-One personalized coaching: 3-hour package 5-hour package 10-hour package (includes The MMI Mastery Method Online Course for free) Contact for detail: consultant@nextmd.ca Finally, this is a stressful time. But don't let the INTERVIEW hinder you from your dream of becoming a doctor. Good luck to all the applicants who are interviewing this year. NextMD Turn Rejections into Admissions
  9. Hey folks, a quick question. Did you check if all of your verifiers received the UofA email for verification? I asked one of my verifiers, and it seems he has not received it anything yet from UofA. Do all activity verifiers get checked? If so, then does it simply mean that this individual who has not received anything yet will be emailed a bit later? I ask this because all the other verifiers got emailed last week, except perhaps this person. So I'm not sure if I should talk to UofA about it and perhaps tell them to resend the email. (Btw, I am an in-province applicant, if that would help with anything) Thanks again.
  10. Hello everyone, I am set to graduate in June 2018 with a Bachelor of Engineering from a university in Ontario. I've recently decided to look into the possibility of applying to medical schools in Alberta, Ontario and BC. I've always had an interest in medicine but somehow didn't think I would be able to get in. Now that I am pretty much done with my undergrad, I am considering the option again. I did very well in university (GPA around 3.9 if considering Alberta and probably lower in Ontario, OMSAS scale is a bit less advantageous, have not looked at BC GPA conversion yet) and I am now planning on taking the MCAT this summer. My question has more to do with ECs than grades or MCAT score. Because of my degree and personal circumstances, I've had to work part-time all throughout university as well as complete co-op placements (for experience and to help pay for school). That left very little time for any other type of extra-curricular involvement. I am considering applying for this cycle (for Fall 2019) but I am a bit discouraged by my lack of ECs. I did research as co-ops twice for 4 months each time (nothing to do with medicine) and worked oil and gas for another 8 months. As far as other work experience, I've had many part-time jobs, some more relevant than others (mentor vs McDonalds). I would appreciate any advice on applying for this cycle. My plan is to work after graduation and work on my ECs but I am debating putting money and time into the current cycle.
  11. I was hoping that a current or previous U of A OT student could tell me more about the student selected modules for course 543. I am trying to determine whether this is component of the program at U of A that appeals to me. What topics have you had to choose from?
  12. Does anyone know when the admission offers for MOT come out for U of A?
  13. Is there anyone in Toronto who has an interview at UofA and who would like to get together for practice? It would be particularly beneficial if we could get at least one person who's been through this experience at UofA before but this is also a call to all the Edmonton naive (like me).

  16. Hey everyone, I'm currently an Alberta resident going to school at Arizona State University and set to graduate in Spring 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance. I've recently decided to look into the possibility of applying to med school in Alberta since becoming a doctor is something I've always wanted to do but didn't think possible. I haven't really taken any of the pre-reqs (being a business major and all) and have a 3.81 cGPA. I am at ASU as a D1 athlete which is why i never pursued a science undergraduate, and have one year of eligibility left after this to potentially knock off some pre-reqs or get some clinical or research experience. I've heard some schools like U of C and U of A don't require pre-reqs. I haven't written the MCAT but feel I could achieve an average or slightly above average grade if I studied hard for it. On top of that, I feel overall I have a pretty good resume considering extracurriculars serving in leadership positions on sports teams but no clinical or research experience. I would just like to get some thoughts on whether I even have a chance at getting into med school in Alberta and what I need to do to improve my chances. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  17. Hi All, This post is aimed at past/current MScOT students who can give us prospective/incoming students more information on the program and reasons to accept our offer. Personally, I would like to know if the program is overly technical/super science-oriented? Thanks!

    Obtaining Alberta Residency

    Hey guys, so I'm IP BC, I've cross posted in UBC thread so hopefully not violating terms by posting here too.... Wondering if I work for 6-8 months rurally within Alberta whether I'd qualify for Alberta residency and rural considerations? If I got Alberta residency, do I get to keep my BC IP one if I'm back in BC and working by April / May next year? I will simultaneously be doing online schoolwork out of BC universities. What would be decent, competitive IP stats for Alberta? How many weeks out of each month, or months out of the year would I be required to live/work in either place in order to get my residency?

  20. Hey everyone on Premed101. I'm a member of the UofA DDS 2020 orientation week committee. Just heard the invites for interviews have started to go out, so we thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for all the interviewees to set up rides, get information about the interview and maybe (because I know its what this page is for) compare scores. Good luck to all those invited, the class of 2020 will be helping at the interviews so I hope to see you all in March.
  21. Hello, If you are interested in joining an interview practice group for the MMI (Alberta Schools) or if you already have a practice group and need extra people, please pm me. Skype is also an option (for non-Albertans), pm me if interested. Thanks
  22. Hello! I have a question regarding the specialty focus of MPT programs in Canada. I was told that UBC has a neuro focus while Alberta has a sports focus and Western has an orthopedic focus, is this true? Also, what do Queens and McMaster focus on? Thanks!

  24. Edmonton-Downtown 2 bedroom condo -3.6 km to U of A Hospital. on the bike path. 10909 103 Avenue Northwest, Edmonton, AB, Canada find this fabulous condo on www.MEDShousing.com Listing ID #0007562 https://medshousing.com/properties/great-downtown-edmonton-highrise-for-rent/ This spacious, condo is perfect for young professionals looking for a central urban living. Medical Residents/Students are preferred. It’s located in a great area (on 104 ave and 109 st) in a steel and concrete high-rise on the 12th floor. It’s a block from groceries, and more importantly, it’s 11 mins bike ride (3.6km) to the University of Alberta Hospital, and an 11 drive to the Royal Alexandra Hospital. It’s right on a bike path and super close to restaurants, bars etc on Jasper ave. The neighbourhood is great (lots of residents/docs also live in the area/building) I loved living there, and had I not moved to Calgary for the mountains, I would have stayed there. It’s about 1200sq ft. 2 bed, 2 bath, with tile and engineered hardwood flooring in an open concept main living area. It comes with an underground parking stall and an extra storage unit on the deck (I have a lot of gear – I had no problem storing everything, AND winter tires). It is partially furnished with a couch, TV hutch and stand, bookshelf, side table, BBQ, dining table, bar and all the usual kitchen appliances, washer/dryer. I’m sure the current tenant would be amenable to negotiate selling some of his stuff. This condo is available July 1, with earlier move-in likely available.
