  1. Salut! Je suis en en premier cycle en bac de kinésiologie à Udem. Je voulais initialement aller en ergothérapie ou physiothérapie à UdeM ou McGill, mais ma cote r était trop faible. Présentement, elle est de 30,655. Je me suis mise en kiné pour tenter d'augmenter mes notes. J'ai lu plusieurs posts disant que kiné n'était plus un autant bon programme tremplin qu'auparavant , mais c'était plus dirigé à ceux qui voulait aller en médecine. Je comprend aussi que l'IFG n'est pas très fort. Je vois que celui a Ulaval est de 2.644 (https://www.ulaval.ca/sites/default/files/admission/table-des-etalons.pdf) , mais je suis à udem donc ce n'est peux être pas la même chose... Si je veux aller en ergo ou physio, est ce que vous seriez quel genre de GPA je dois avoir minimalement pour être compétitive (si disons j'essaie d'appliquer en hiver 2021 pour automne 2021 ou hiver 2022 pour automne 2022)? Merci!
  2. Salut!! La date du premier TAED approche bientôt donc j'ai pensé commencer une discussion sur l'admission en DMD pour l'automne 2021 si jamais vous avez des questions sur quoi que ce soit! Heeyy! The first DAT exam is coming up soon so I thought of starting a discussion for the fall 2021 dentistry admissions in case you had any questions!
  3. Hi guys, this is my first time posting on this forum but I was hoping to get some help with choosing my undergrad. To give some insight on my educational background, I'm graduating from Cegep this semester but my R-score isnt too great(30.4), so I have to do my undergrad before applying to med school. This has been my childhood dream but unfortunately I went through a really rough patch in Cegep however Im willing to put the effort it takes to do well with my undergrad and try my chance for med school. I applied to Concordia university for winter 2021 in Cell and Molecular biology(specialization) with a minor in Multidisciplinary Studies in Science. I wanted to ideally pursue my education at McGill but unfortunately they dont accept admissions for the winter semester. 1. Do you think my program of choice and minor would give me a shot at med school? 2. Would it be better for me to apply to Mcgill for fall 2021 and transfer from Concordia? I wanna start uni now so I dont fall back on my courses but I could always apply to McGill for fall 2021 and transfer if it would be to my advantage. 3. I know Mcgill's med school doesnt really care about your undergrad program and they only pay attention to your gpa but since apparently the difficulty of the degree matters for french med schools once they want to calculate your CRU, would it better for me to apply to a "harder" degree at McGill for fall 2021 when I request a transfer? I'd appreciate any tips you guys might have for me thank you!!!
  4. Hi all! Is anyone having issues with login into Minerva for the first time? I entered my ID and my PIN (YYMMDD), but it doesn't let me login... Thank you! EDIT: Got it !
  5. I was looking to apply to McGill this cycle and wanted an idea of how competitive I'd look pre-interview. I'm a Quebec resident (though I did post secondary in Ontario) and I have a CGPA of 3.83, I'm finishing up my Masters and my GPA for that is 3.93. I also just got my MCAT score back and got a 517 (130 in everything except CARS which was 127!). I know McGill this cycle is no longer looking at prerequisite GPA specifically and the average GPA for IP students admitted last year was 3.87. I'm just wondering how I'd fare this year as I feel my undergrad CGPA may be too low (considering this can take up to 70% of my pre interview score). I was pretty happy with my MCAT this year and definitely wanna apply with it but McGill made it pretty unclear as to what extent it can support an application this cycle. Any thoughts/advice?
  6. Hey, I was just wondering what you guys think will happen with the interviews this year. The pandemic still has a massive impact on our lives and I've started thinking about wether or not we'd have MMI's this year. Do you think that the MMI will be replaced by the CASPER like last year? Or will the Universities be able to organize the MMI's and respect physical distancing measures?... Maybe it's still too early to ask this sort of question but it's been on my mind since the interviews were cancelled for the 2020 admission cycle. (I'm a CEGEP student Btw)
  7. Hello everyone, Let us present ourselves: we are student ambassadors of McGill Medicine. Not too long ago, we were in the applicant seats and we sympathize with the anxiety that comes along with that role. In fact, some of us roamed the pages here at premed101 and asked questions of our own in the hope of elucidating some of our worries about the application process and student life at McGill Medicine. We are glad to tell you that we are happy with our choice and this has brought us to pilot this Q&A initiative, where we hope to give back some of the good advice we have received along the way. Please do note that although we are affiliated with McGill's admission committee, the opinions we give here represent an honest and subjective view that is independent from the admissions committee. Now that is cleared up...Dear applicants, please ask away! Wishing you the very best during this application session, McGill Med Ambassadors Questions list (updated infrequently, search is your friend!) MMI Tips Could you describe a typical day at McGill medical school? How much "free time" do you have in the program?What is the general atmosphere between students, do you feel some kind of competition? Are you graded, or is the program pass/fail? What are some aspects of McGill and/or the program that you don't like and could be improved? Information about the MD/PhD program (specifically the interview process) Information for applicants who do not speak French, French language requirements How many people from the waiting list are admitted every year for Quebec university level?

How does the admission process works for Ph.D students that are almost done and want to apply to the MD.CM program?

What is the average leisure time you can enjoy per day? Does McGill offer early decision admission? If so, how does it work and when is the application due? Can CEGEP courses count towards Recommended Physiology Courses? Does taking 3 and/or 4 courses per semester lead to an automatic refusal? If an interview is obtained on the basis of a second undergrad, are you required to complete this second degree with a full course load and obtain the diploma? Do you remember completely messing up a station or two but still end up getting in? What role to CEGEP grades play in my Med-P admission process? How many student retake the Med-P year and why? Science GPA vs. Recommended courses ... which are taken into account post interview? How much or how little should I practice for the interview? I applied for extenuating circumstances and I want to know if they will be considered for my admission, should I write to the admission office or should I not ask? Will French affect my learning and interactions with peers? WHY McGill? HOW is the the curriculum structured? Does accepting your McGill Med offer removes you from consideration at Ontario schools? What do they mean by "studies currently in progress must be at a level comparable to past academic performance."? Will my acceptance be revoked?? When are we supposed to send our first tuition payments? Is 26 years old too old to start medical school? How can I join the class of 2021 facebook group? Does the admission committee discriminate against applicants who have a second degree? How does course replacement for science prerequisites work? Will increasing my GPA by retaking courses during fall help me to get an interview? What should I do if my account on Minerva shows that I am supposed to pay international fees even though I am a Qc resident? Are there good study spaces on campus? How many times can I apply to medical school? Does McGill offer public transportation passes? What should I do if my science prerequisites expire soon? How are block exams delivered?

In which building are classes mostly held? Can the science prerequisites be taken at other universities/as online courses? Is the list of reasons for deferral on the McGill Website exhaustive? Do McGill students need to upload a final transcript? When does the security check by CMQ happen? Are classes recorded? Is it possible to re-take on the science prerequisite courses in order to increase my GPA?
  8. Hi everyone, I was wondering if knows whether you have the option to choose between MD and MD-PhD if you get into both for Mcgill. In the application you can only select one and they mention that even you don't get into MD-PhD you could still get into the MDCM program, however I'm just wondering if you could decided between the two if you got your MD-PhD acceptance or you have take MD-PhD
  9. Bonjour, si quelqu’un est intéressé à se préparer au Casper, si vous voulez envoyer moi un PM! Je sais qu’on ne peut pas trop se préparer à ce genre de truc, mais on peut se poser des questions fabriquées par nous-mêmes juste pour se donner une petite idée. {Je ne vends rien} merci!

  11. Bonjour, je me demandais si c’est possible de passer le CASPer deux fois, une fois en anglais et l’autre en français. La raison pour laquelle ça m’intéresse c’est pcq Mcgill et Udem acceptent en Anglais et les deux autres uniquement en français. Je me sens plus à l’aise avec celui en français, donc c’est pour cela que je me posait la question. merci!
  12. Hi everyone, I'm planning to apply to bunch of school this year, many of which require casper. For Dalhousie, the latest date you could right the test is Aug 28 but for the others one the last date is much later in the year. I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to right the test twice, one for dalhousie and another for others. I know on their website it says limit of 1 test per year but website itself allows you to book a later date so I'm not sure if you actually cannot write it twice.
  13. Hello, on the McGill site it states that you can be admitted on the basis of your second degree GPA if you have completed 45 credits by the Nov 1 deadline. Say I start a 2 year after degree this September. How would I be able to meet the 45 credits by Nov of next year? (nov 2021?) Thanks Policy: https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/requirements/requirements-edu/degree-requirements
  14. Bonjour, j'ai fini le cégep récemment et j'ai été accepté en Nutrition à McGill et en kinésiologie à Udem. J'attends encore la réponse pour kinésiologie à McGill. Je voudrais savoir si kinésiologie est un bon programme pour ensuite aller en pharmacie (après 1 ans environ). J'ai parlé à un pharmacien et c'est ce qu'il a fait. Aussi, est-ce que le programme de kinésiologie est plus facile et permet de bien augmenter la cote r à McGill ou à Udem?
  15. Hey guys, I was just wondering for those who got interviews at McGill: how competitive does ones CV have to be? I just finished my first year of Cegep and will be applying next cycle to Mcgill + Francophone schools. Academically R score in 38-39 range at the moment, but a lot will depend on next semester (over 50% of it because second semester won’t count due to COVID-19). My biggest worry is that my CV won’t be competitive. Unfortunately, I was planning on working and volunteering this summer but everything has been cancelled since COVID-19. Will the fact that most of my commitments ended in 2019 affect my application? My most recent experience would be an award in 2019 and a job during summer 2019, all I would have since then are things in the hobbies section/education sections. Additionally, for the verifiers, does anyone know how that process works? Also how many items should one have to be competitive? thanks a lot!
  16. Bonjour, Je n'ai pas appliqué en médecine cette année parce que je savais que je n'avais pas de chance d'être admis en médecine avec une Cote R de 31.8 en science de la nature. Pour l"automne 2020, je vais aller en droit à l'Université de Montréal. Par contre, j'ai toujours le désir d'aller en médecine malgré le fait que j'aime aussi le droit. Je voudrais savoir quand je pourrais rappliquer en médecine à ULaval, Sherbrooke, Udem et McGill. Effectivement, je ne sais pas si je dois compléter mes études en droit pour ensuite rappliquer en médecine ou bien je peux rappliquer après 1 ou 2 ans de Bac en Droit. D'ailleurs, je voudrais appliquer quand mes chances d'acceptation sont possibles. Je sais que certains université mélangent la Cote R du cégep et de l'université lorsqu'on fait une demande en médecine, mais je ne sais pas lequel. Aussi, si c'est le cas, je voudrais savoir le poids de ma Cote R Collégial sur mon CRU final et si je suis considérée dans la catégorie candidat collégien ou candidat universitaire. Je sais que cette réponse est dans le forum, mais il y a tellement de nouveaux «Topic» que je trouve ça long trouver la réponse. J'ai essayé d'envoyer un message aux université, mais je n'ai pas encore eu de réponse. Bonne journée et merci en avance P-s: J'explore aussi les options hors Québec. Si vous avez des informations sur ça, n'hésitez pas de m'en parler

  18. Hi! Anyone else on the Med-P waitlist 2020? I'm between 15-20 on the waitlist... Don't want to get too discouraged! Does anyone know how much it moved last year?
  19. Hi ! I'm torn between two programs at McGill (nutrition and OT) for Fall 2020 and I was wondering if anyone that is currently in the OT program at McGill or knows any details about it could reply and give me details about it. I do have some volunteering experience in hospitals but I haven't had the chance to shadow an OT. I have been looking through forums in the hopes to find more information about the program but couldn't find any valuable details. Thank you in advance to anyone that takes the time to respond !
  20. Hi! Has anyone heard any news about their McGill Major Entrance Scholarship application? Do you know when they’ll start giving out decisions (**Edit: decisions for the Major Entrance Scholarship)? When I go on Minerva, it says that my application is being reviewed by a selection committee
  21. Hey Guys I hope that I don’t create a panic with this post. As we get closer to the magical Monday, please use this thread to report your outcomes. I removed EC and cGPA as at this point it is only prereq GPA that plays a role: TIME STAMP:  Result: pre-reqGPA: MCAT: Feeling About MMI (please be mindful of NDA): Year: IP/OOP/International: comments: Good Luck to all my comrades. Every step of this journey has been bitter sweet. There has been tears of joy and disappointment but very soon we shall know of our destiny. No matter the outcomes, let us we are much grander than this decision. “Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.” May the odds be ever in your favor! Good Luck!!!!
  22. Hello, I was wondering if anyone would be interested to meet up to practice MMI, we could meet up and practice different scenarios and help each other :) Let me know!
  23. Hello, Does anyone know anything about IMG postgraduate stream "contingent particulier"? Any statistics, experience, admission release dates etc... On https://mcgill.ca/pgme/admissions/prospective-residents/ministry-funded/contingent-particulier there are just general information. Tx Velimir
  24. Hi guys! Much gratitude in advance for the replies/advice/insight! I'm an M3 in Montreal, Med-P background, and only have eyes from Family Medicine. I just wonder too often whether, at this point, I'm strong enough of an applicant? I have no research experience, but do have years worth of community involvement (mostly from before Med-P, about 1 years worth during) and my own health literacy initiative. Apart from this, so far, my clerkship evaluations are good. I plan on pursuing electives that could help me refine skills that would make me a better Fam Doc. I am "well-rounded" with respect to my extracurriculars. However, that is about it. What can I do to make myself a stronger candidate? To match here in Montreal would be a dream, but I certainly will be applying broadly. To summarize, here are some questions I would hugely appreciate having answers too. 1) What makes a strong family medicine applicant? 2) Is research worth pursuing during M3/M4 given I have no previous experience? 3) Are some strong reference letters more valuable than others (i.e surgery vs psych vs fam med) 4) What do you recommend as far as electives for a Fam Med applicant? Thank you so much! Please excuse my anxious med-p energy (it's chronic).
