  2. Bonjour à tous! Je me suis dise que se serait bien de crée une nouvelle discussion pour la prochaine admission en médecine vétérinaire pour l'automne 2020! Hésitez pas à poser toutes vos questions ici Perso j'applique pour la 4iem fois cette année, j'espère que c'est la bonne!
  3. Hi everyone!! I am currently applying for Dalhousie and they request for an MCAT score. I wrote the MCAT twice and got the same score. The first time I did well in CARS, the second time I did well in the sciences. Does anyone know which one Dalhousie prefers for applications? Thank you in advance!
  4. Is there any major advantage to taking an undergraduate degree in biology or medical sciences for applying to med school? Because they say they want all-rounded students but would taking a medical related undergraduate help for the MCAT? Thanks!
  5. Hey, I was wondering if anybody knew which canadian dental schools required reference letters, from what i'm hearing UFT and Western dont? Just wanted to make sure about these two schools and any others in canada!
  6. Hi, so I may have the opportunity to go on a wildlife conservation mission in Thailand or Bali, however, I can also choose to go on a medical mission/learning thing in Vietnam or India. The wildlife conservation mission is really cool and more hands on while the medical missions are more seminar and workshops. For medical school, which would be a better option? It seems intuitive that the medical mission would be the better choice, but I feel that it might be very standard (like many people have done it) whereas the elephant conservation mission may be more unique. Thoughts?
  7. I was doing some research on how to build an strong application and stumbled upon some "red flags" posts. I have a general idea about it, but I was thinking if some of you could give me a few tips regarding this topic. I believe other med students can benefit from this discussion as well. The red flags I've seen more often are: 1. Low scores or previous failure (pretty straightforward) 2. Time since graduation > 5 years ("old candidates") 3. Interruptions in medical school (may be seen as inability to handle adversity) 4. Late or incomplete application (make the applicant seem unprepared or disorganized) 5. No clinical experience/letters of reccomendation (for IMGs, like myself. As some say "not obligatory, but important") (Those are not my opinions, they are a compilation of what I found in other discussions) Can anyone expand a little on this topic? Any other tips are welcome as well. My best regards!
  8. I thought it would be nice to continue the tradition of having this thread for applicants! Copy and pasted from the previous years thread. Here's how it goes (use this format): Applied + (PT or OT?): Accepted: Waitlisted: Rejected: GPA: (cum and sub if you applied to any University using them both) Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: Good luck everyone!
  9. I recently followed this doctor's instagram for the financial tips and saw that she posted some tips from her experience as a file reviewer that differentiated a stellar essay from an average essay. Thought it might be helpful for you guys to check out - link below Good luck guys, be sure take time to relax after you hit the submit button!
  10. 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!
  11. Hi guys! Has anyone here applied/ gotten interviews for dental schools while having a relatively low GPA that was attributed to a medical condition? Most people who get in are 3.8-4.0 range in GPA, but I wonder if there are some instances where someone had a low-ish GPA (because of said undiagnosed condition) but a great DAT score, shadowing experience, research, etc. that was able to score an interview or even get an admission in Canada? If you were able to show trends of academic improvement after receiving treatment, do you think that was a major deciding factor for them? I’ll probably ask more detailed questions later when I can. Just want to get a look at what’s out there! Thank you!
  12. Wondering if anyone received an email from University of Ottawa (French or English stream) acknowledging receipt of their application? It's my first year applying to their medical program, but third year applying via OMSAS (McMaster and NOSM) and I've always received an email from the individual schools acknowledging my application, in addition to the confirmation email from OMSAS. I received emails from McMaster and NOSM in December, but nothing from Ottawa... Is this normal? Do they simply do things differently? Or should I be contacting them to make sure there hasn't been an issue? Thanks in advance!
  13. Salut, donc en gros j'applique en méd dentaire avec une cote R assez faible ( le calcul ma bcp moins avantagé que les autres cest ma derniere session qui m'a aidé à remonter... bref), est ce que vous pensez que le cut ooff va augmenter pour Ulaval ? (pcq logiquement le cutoff est fait en fonction des annees precedentes non ??) C'est vraiment mon premier choix dent et vu que je suis au dessus du cutoff jespere qu'ils ne vont pas l'augmenter (et le mettre a 35 par exemple...) Je cherche des réponses pour cette question un peu partout mais je n'en trouve pas vrm :// The thing is vu que plus personne peut appliquer en dent depuis le 15 janvier (à cause du TAED) I'm hoping que le cut off ne change pas !! Merciii
  14. Hey guys, I've always had my eye on UBC med and am now close to applying to a few med schools. I hear UBC has a strong in provence preference...is this true? Would I get an advantage if I just change my Ontario staus to BC with some govenerment paperwork lol or do you have to do your undergrad and live there as well? Be great to get some input from people who are from ontario based universities (anything to up my chances). Cheers, Victor
  15. Hello Everyone, I know this is very late but I was finishing up my application for this cycle and I have noticed that there is no section that is asking for me to enter my grades from my transcript. I remmebr last year I had to manually enter all the courses I took and the grades I received. Am I doing something wrong this year? I can not find that section! there is only a transcript section which you can fill out a transcript request form! Please Help Thanks a lot in advance.
  16. I am trying to upload a file with my scanned PR card in the personal info section. When I press save, it says "your information has been successfully saved", but when I come back to that section, there are no longer any files attached! Is anyone having this problem as well? I am having the same issue with the "additional documents" section as well. I am wondering if I should go through the whole application without revisiting (perhaps revisiting resets that section?). I am panicking because the deadline is on Monday!!!
  17. Hey, I applied to med schools last year via OMSAS and I'm applying again this year, do I need to make a new OMSAS account? I see a reminder on their page that if I made one after August 2016, I don't need a new one, but I've also tried using my IT# log in from last year and it doesnt seem to be working. Thanks!
  18. Hello everyone, I am a second year medical student at UofT offering application editing and interview preparation at a reasonable rate. I have helped numerous students in the past who have all received positive results. Please message me for further details if you are interested.
  19. 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!
  20. hi guys, was wondering what my chances are of getting into any dental schools in the states with my current gpa and what schools i should apply to.So i graduated from a Canadian university with an average of ~70% (i know it's low ): ). I am currently finishing a dental hygiene program and was wondering if that would help me with my dental application (would dental schools look at that??). I am also doing two extra fourth year level undergrad science courses (getting an 80+ right now). I have some dental experiences and I will be doing my DAT by the end of the year. What are my chances of getting admitted to any american or even australian dental schools? thanks guys! (would help a lot if you can list some schools)
  21. Hi all, Long story short I'm doing my masters and then trying to apply to apply to med. The two lab I'm debating between are like this: Lab 1 - Super prestigious (better reference letter) but longer projects (with more impact) medically oriented. Super low chance of getting first author, probably get 1 middle author paper. Two middle author papers if lucky. Lab 2 - Solid lab, publishes a ton, not medically oriented but still biology (molec in animals). Students usually get at least 1-2 first author publications and have chances for other pubs. I'm planning on applying to UofT, Western and McMaster, Queens, Calgary I asked UofT and they said that for the graduate route you basically need first author. However I noticed that the other medschools don't really have the option for a graduate stream. So essentially my question is, which lab would increases my chances of getting in? Do publications matter in the other places besides UofT's grad stream? Apologies if these are really dumb questions, I've been stressing uot abot this for 2 weeks =/ no idea where else to go. Thanks!
  22. Hi all,I'm a 3rd year Ontario non-SWOMEN undergrad student with an MCAT score of 131/127/131/128 (517 total). My GPA is ~3.98 and I have strong non-clinical ECs and clinical research experience. I'll be applying to Canadian med schools this upcoming summer, and if I don't get accepted I'll apply to Canadian and US med schools the following year.I'm concerned that my 127 CARS shuts a lot of doors in Canada - I think I'm really only competitive for U of T, Queens, and Ottawa - so I'm considering re-writing. However, I'm concerned that re-writing will harm my chances at US med schools, as I've heard that US schools in general don't look favorably on re-writing without substantial improvement (I know that some US schools state on their website that they look at the most recent or highest MCAT, but I've seen others recommend interpreting those statements cautiously). I don't think I will be able to 'substantially improve'; realistically, my goal with a re-write would be to get a similar overall score with just a couple points higher in CARS.I plan on submitting a Canadian application this upcoming cycle because Canada does not frown upon re-applicants so the potential of getting rejected this cycle is not a deterrent. However, I would need an additional year to get my US application prepared.TL;DR: Should I re-write my MCAT (517 with 127 CARS) - bolstering my Canadian application if CARS improves (even if total score decreases) but potentially harming my US app - or just apply with my current MCAT score (in the 2017/18 cycle for Canada and in the 2018/19 cycle for US and Canada)?
  23. Hi! I know this might sound like a silly question but which Canadian medical schools focus the least on your extracurriculars?
  24. I have done two paid internships (one in Uni and another in High School). How would I list them when applying to medical school? Would they go under work experience (this is what I think)?
