  1. Hello! I am a secondary 5 student at a private high school in Montreal. I am interested in going into medicine, and do not know which CEGEP to choose accordingly to that. I’m also not certain if the CEGEP I choose will, positively or negatively, affect my R score, or if going to a public CEGEP will prevent me from obtaining a high R-score. Would it be more of an advantage to attend a private one? (Not sure if this is relevant, but the language of the CEGEP doesn’t matter to me since I’m perfectly bilingual, but I have gone to school in French since elementary). I’m used to being in a competitive environment and absolutely don’t mind giving up my social life for school, so I do believe this matches more to the general ambiance certain private CEGEP’s. For public ones, I’m not too sure but I think Bois de Boulogne is a good school for getting into medicine, and for private obviously Marianopolis is the best regarding the R-score. I also don’t know if the proximity to my house should be an important factor when choosing. Thanks in advance
  2. Bonjour, Je suis présentement en 4ᵉ année du secondaire en mathématiques SN (séquence naturelle) avec l'année prochaine les cours de chimie et de physique. Au cégep, J'aimerais entrer dans le programme de sciences de la nature, idéalement au Collège de Maisonneuve qui offre un parcours enrichi. J'aimerais connaître les moyennes requises, notamment en mathématiques et en sciences (chimie et physique) pour y être admis. Évidemment, je ne m'attends pas à avoir comme réponse une moyenne précise et concrète à partir de laquelle ont est admis ou l'on ne l'est pas; je sais qu'il y a plusieurs autres facteurs qui entrent en compte. Cest pour ça que je ne souhaite avoir qu'une approximation de la moyenne requise. Faut-il par exemple simplement passer avec plus de 60% ou faut-il avoir des résultats atteignant les 90% et plus? Si d'une façon ou d'une autre vous connaissez la réponse ou que vous êtes (ou avez été) vous-même un(e) étudiant(e) (pas forcément de Maisonneuve) de ce programme et que vous vous souvenez à peu près des moyennes que vous aviez obtenues en 4ᵉ et 5ᵉ années du secondaire en mathématiques SN et en sciences (chimie et physisque), je serais intéressé à les connaître pour me faire une idée du niveau requis pour enter dans le programme de sciences de la nature. Merci.
  3. Hi, I'm in secondary 5 this year and in a few months I will have to apply to Cegep and I have a few questions. 1- Is there really a boost if I went to Marianopolis to then try to apply to Premed programs in Mcgill and UdeM? 2- What is the best way to choose my Cegep? 3-I kind of want to go to Dawson more than anywhere else, does an average of around 87 have any chance? 4-Does the fact that I'm currently in an IB program help in the admission in Cegeps next year Thanks a lot!
  4. Bonjour! Étant en secondaire 5 avec de bonnes notes présentement, je dois choisir un Cégep pour effectuer mes études en science naturelles l’année prochaine. On le répète assez souvent; entrer en Médecine, ce ne sera pas un jeu d’enfant. Pour ce faire, croyez-vous vraiment que les différents Cégeps n’influencent aucunement une admission en médecine et une bonne CoteR ? Dans le cadre où le transport est presque de durée similaire dans tous les cas, y aurait-il une différence entre un parcours à BdeB, Saint-Laurent, ou même Maisonneuve? Est-ce que de choisir Dawson ou Brébeuf serait plus avantageux à la fin de la journée? Merci beaucoup de vos réponses!
  5. Hello all, Im an IMG interested in General Surgery and was wondering what the different pros and cons of each program are, and what respective residents think about their programs
  6. 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 --- Year 2: Université de Montréal - Neuroscience --- Years 3-5: Université de Montréal - Computer Science --- 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.
  7. Hello premed101 users! I am a 21 year old soon-to-be 3rd year (DEC) nursing student currently studying in Montreal. For the last year or so, I have been thinking about restructuring my academic path in a way that would ultimately allow me to apply to medical school. After many hours of reflection, I decided it would be best to finish my nursing DEC so that i could then apply in Health Sciences (Fall 2020). This means that i would be completing my med school prerequisites over another two years, all the while working part time as a nurse. I currently have a 33.0 global R-score. I've won two scholarships and have been on the Dean's list since my admission. I believe i have a better shot at staying in CEGEP for two more years, acing my science courses, hopefully increase my R-score from 33.0 to at least 35.0, and then apply to med school. I feel like the academic competition in CEGEP is somewhat more manageable than the fierce competition of university, which would make it easier for me to stand out. In addition, I've seen that the med faculties offer more spaces for college students than university students. All that being said, I just wish to have some objective input on the matter. Many of us here come from many different backgrounds which is why i want to have your advice. Is my plan feasible? Should i be better off applying to university after my nursing DEC? Why or why not? Ps: je suis parfaitement bilingue donc soyez bien à l'aise de répondre en français! Thank you so much in advance!
  8. Bonjour! suivons tous ensemble l’évolution de la saison 2019 des admissions en médecine concernant notre pays adoré, le Québec. Faites nous savoir vos infos brûûlanteeees
  9. Bonjour, Je termine mes sciences de la nature cette session ci. J’ai appliqué en ergothérapie comme premier choix (temporairement toutefois) et en droit comme back up, uniquement à l’université Laval. Je demeure optimiste quant à mes chances d’être pris en ergo, car ma cote r collégiale est de 32,9. Toutefois, j’aimerais ne faire qu’un an en ergothérapie et envoyer une demande au doctorat de premier cycle en pharmacie à l’université Laval après avoir accumulé 12 crédits. Si je m’implique dans des commités liés à mon programme, si je travaille dans un hôpital cet été et si j’obtiens une cru autour de 35 disons (qui compterait alors pour 24% dans mon dossier et la cote R du cégep pour 76%), est-ce réaliste de penser changer aussi rapidement ou non? cordialement moi-même
  10. Salut! Est-ce qu'il y'a d'autre monde qui a fait une demande d'admission pour les sciences infirmières (formation initiale) à l'UdeM, UQO, UQTR? Avez vous eu une réponse? J'attends toujours Hi! Did anyone else apply to UdeM, UQO or UQTR's BScN (formation initiale)? Did you hear back? I'm still waiting
  11. Hey guys, I'm about to finish CEGEP soon and I'm still very confused about the path i'm supposed to follow in order to get in medschool since i'm from Quebec! I even spoke to Diane Parent . She told me that all i needed was to get the right Wgpa in my pre-requires courses to get in. But now i'm reading what you guys wrote here and i'm lost.. haha can i just do my pre-requires and apply as an undergrad at Uottawa? Or do I have to go get a BAC frst? thanks
  12. I came across the webpage with the Class of Medicine 1985 Entrance Scholarship https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/newstudents/financial-aid. Does anyone know if this is only for Med-P or first-degree students, or can Quebec University applicants also apply? Also, does this application require an invitation to apply (in the description it says "submission of an invited supplemental essay", but then makes no reference to this anywhere in the instructions)? Thanks!
  13. I was wondering if someone who did his pre-university studies (Cégep) in Québec and applied to the University of Waterloo could answer some of my questions. I would like to apply to the program of optometry in Waterloo but I don't know who I have to contact to verify if the courses I completed fulfill the prerequisites necessary to be eligible to the program. If someone could help me go through the procedure it would be great! _______________________________________________________________________________ Je me demandais si quelqu'un qui a appliqué à l'Université de Waterloo après avoir complété un DEC/Téchnique dans un Cégep du Québec pourrais répondre a mes questions. J'aimerais appliquer au programme d'optométrie de Waterloo mais je ne sais pas qui contacter pour vérifier si les cours que j'ai complété durant mon parcours sont équivalents à ceux demandés. Si quelqu'un peut m'aider ça serait grandement apprécié!
  14. Bonjour! Je suis finalement entrée en science de la nature et santé au Cégep Garneau après un parcours assez fâcheux en informatique, science humaines, adultes. Je n'ai jamais vraiment eu d'exemples chez moi car personne n'a de diplôme et nous vivons assez modestement… donc l'école n'a pas été ma plus grande priorité malgré la volontébde vouloir réussir... en cette dernière session j'ai finalement adopté de meilleures stratégies d'études surtout pour mon cours de chimie :) .... malgré tout je m'inquiète car j'ai déjà 3 cours de littérature de complétés, 2 cours de philo, 2 d'éducation physique et 2 d'anglais….. et pas nécessairement avec des notes extraordinaires et je sais maintenant que la cote R dépend des cours de base également. Je me sens comme un echec car pour plusieurs année j'ai repoussé mon rêve car on m'a dit souvent que je n'arriverais à rien dans la vie... cette année j'ai un élan de motivation en ayant vu un changement drastique dans ma note de chimie mise à niveau et je suis fière de moi.. je me demande malgré tout si je devrais abandonner, si les cours de bases compte autant que la bio, match, chimie? J'ai entendu des réponses TRÈS variées par de divers conseillers d'orientation, profs et quelques étudiants. Je suis inquiète... merci
  15. I'm currently a first-year student at Concordia University in Montreal, and am looking to satisfy the Biology II w/ Lab during my second year. (Just finished BIOLOGY 1) However, at Concordia, there is no General Biology 2 course w/ Lab, instead, there are 2 separate lecture courses (BIOL 225 and BIOL 226 without labs) that are mandatory prerequisites for a full-on Lab Course (BIOL 227). Essentially, I have to take 9 Credits worth of courses (3 separate classes) to satisfy 1 year of Biology w/lab requirement of Med school. Would it be possible to take Biology 2 w/ Lab in Cegep and have it satisfy my pre requisite for Med School admissions? Also, would courses completed in Cegep be valid for applications outside of Canada? If I were to apply to some American M.D schools for instance, could I show my transcript for a Biology 2 course taken in a CEGEP and have it count? Another alternative I know of is to take BIOLOGY 2 while at Mcgill using the Quebec-University transfer class system, but BIOL 112 (Biology 2 w/lab ) at Mcgill appears to cover some topics that I've already been tested on in BIOL 201 at Concordia. Sorry if this post seems convoluted, any advice/insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated!
  16. Bonjour, Je suis rendue à ma deuxième session au cégep. J'ai comme but d'être admis au programme de Médecine, mais je m'inquiète beaucoup pour la cote R. Le seul cours dont je m'inquiète est le cours de philosophie, car mon professeur est très sévère sur la correction et il a la réputation de donner des notes qu'en bas de 80%. Je sais que ce cours va affecter grandement ma cote R finale. Qu'est-ce que vous conseillez de faire? Merci beaucoup! Hi, I'm in my second session of cegep and I would really like to be admitted in the Medical program. The problem is that I'm very anxious about my cote R because my teacher of my philosophy class has the reputation to be really strict in his correction and to give grades under 80%. I know that this classe is going to affect my final cote R. What do you suggest me to do? Thank you!

  20. Hello, I am not sure when would be a good time to take the DAT. Here's my situation: I just graduated from CEGEP, and I didn't take the DAT before as I didn't think I had a great chance at getting into dental school because of my R score (32.5, at the time. My R score is now 33) and my below average CV (some volunteering abroad, some non-related work experience, some school clubs, non-impressive awards, no research/pubs). I also didn't have time to study the summer between my 1st and 2nd year of cegep, as I had worked 90 hours/week. I applied to McGill Dent-P but obviously didn't get in. My R score is now better (33, during my 4th semester I had a 34.95), and I plan to improve my CRU with my university GPA. My CV is also a bit better. Here are my questions: 1. The requirements for different universities are very confusing and honestly, I'm having an extremely hard time finding them out. Which francophone universities accept students en-cours de bac, and what are the CRU requirements? 2. When should I take the DAT? I haven't started studying, and I know I wouldn't feel prepared unless I studied 3-4 months so I don't feel great about taking it in September (I would likely be prepared in 1-2 months, but I wouldn't feel calm/confident. And stress strongly affects my results). I'm also working full-time and therefore don't have as many hours in a day to study for the DAT. I also really don't remember a lot of the basic bio, chem, etc. and so it would probably be quite difficult for me to study the material as I would have to learn everything again. Would I be able to take it in February and still have the results in time to apply to francophone universities as a candidat universitaire en cours de bac? Thank you for taking the time to read this! I really appreciate all answers.
  21. Source Article: http://www.journaldemontreal.com/2017/06/23/quebec-veut-recruter-150-medecins-francais The Province of Quebec is looking to recruit 100 family physicians and 50 anesthesiologists from France to reduce wait-lists. Comments?
  22. Hi, I am currently in CEGEP. Long story short I did a Tremplin DEC ( two semesters) before getting into Health Sciences. I am now decided that Dentistry is my main goal.. however, I'm really concerned about whether I should: Go to university in english (my mother tongue is french and I'm also attending a french cegep) If so, which is university ( Concordia or Mcgill) is better if I do a science/med oriented undergrad program in order to get into dental school What major should I take? This is really my main concern because I wanna chose a good major where I feel like I can earn good grades and perform well! For example, physiology or biology would be the death for me because most of the applicants want to pursue into medecine. So there's gonna be a lot of competiton. But I am aware that I'm gonna have to take science classes (pre requisites) for DENT and I will have to be a strong applicant. I heard a lot that McGill is better than Concordia when it comes to research, labs, people, campus, etc. Is it true ?? I hope it will also help other confused cegepians ! Good Luck!
  23. Premièrement, bonjour à tous et à toutes ! Alors voilà, je suis un élève présentement en secondaire 5, et dans quelque mois, j'aurais la grande opportunité de choisir le CEGEP que j'intégrerais. Pourtant, ce choix s'avère plus difficile que prévu, et ne cesse de me tarauder, dû à mes conditions. Laissez moi rentrer dans le vif du sujet. La seule chose qui m'est assurée est mon l'intention d'entrer en Science de la Santé, peut importe le Cégep. Aussi, puisque je suis à l'aise en anglais, et compte, dans un futur proche, intégrer une Université anglaise, je veux un cégep anglophone. Jusque là, tout va bien. (Il est à aussi à savoir que mes notes se situent vers 85 en montant, et donc l'idée d'un CÉGEP ayant un programme en Science de la Nature enrichi me charme fortement). Il serait aussi agréable pour moi d'avoir un grand cégep avec beaucoup d'activités, de clubs étudiants, bref : beaucoup de manières de s'impliquer. Je crois que c'est important pour ma future entrée à l'Université d'avoir un bon bagage d'expérience extracurriculaires. Alors, si je prend en compte tous ces critères que je viens d'énumérer, Dawson College semble être le CÉGEP de mes rêves. C'est justement là qu'intervient le hic: je suis un joueur de football, et Dawson n'a, malheureusement, pas d'équipe de foot. Inutile donc de vous dire que je suis chagriné à l'idée de devoir abandonner ce sport. Force m'a donc été de considérer un autre CÉGEP que Dawson. J'ai pensé à Vanier, qui répond à toutes mes attentes précédentes, mais perd face à Dawson sur le niveau des opportunités (il me semble). De mêne pour Champlain College (St-Lambert), mais qui perd sans équivoque face à Dawson ou Vanier du côté opportunités, et n'a pas de programme enrichi. Là encore, un autre problème, assez contradictoire, s'ajoute: Serais-je même capable, puisque je compte faire mon CÉGEP en deux ans,(pas de discussion là-dessus) de tenir le coup avec le football et les études ? Est-ce réaliste ? (Et ce, en plus d'habiter sur la Rive-Sud, à plus d'1h de transport en commun de Vanier ?) C'est l'une des nombreuses questions auxquelles je cherche une réponse. Et sur ce même coup de tête, forcé d'envisager d'autres options, mon esprit se dit: Alors, pourquoi ne pas abandonner l'anglais au cégep et aller à un CÉGEP français, avec le football? La même question sur la possibilité du football et les études en 2 ans reviens, mais j'aurais l'opportunité d'avoir des cégeps plus proches, cependant je perdrai alors cet avantage de faire des études en anglais lorsque j'irais à l'université. Le meilleur Cégep pour le football et les études me semble être André-Grasset, mais c'est si loin de chez moi ! Que faire ?! Partout ou je vais, je dois abandonner quelque chose ! Soit le football, soit les opportunités d'un grand cégep (ex: Une chose qui m'intéresse beaucoup chez Dawson est son ''DCMUN'', Dawson College Model United Nations), ou soit le français ( et même là, il se pourrait que j'abandonne le français ET le football, si les études s'avèrent trop difficile. Merci beaucoup d'avoir pris le temps de me lire, et j'espère que vous pourrez m'offrir de judicieux conseils !
  24. Hi, I'm a second year medical student. I've heard about Return of Service contracts for CMGs who do their residency in Quebec, but have done their medical school elsewhere in Canada. I'm interested in a specialty that doesn't have many residency spots, so the ones available in Quebec interest me (I speak French), but I'm concerned that I may be forced to stay in the area for years afterwards. I've looked online but couldn't find a good source on this topic. Does anyone have any information on this (or is it even true)? What are the contract's terms and penalties? Are there similar contracts in other provinces? Thank you!
