Hi everyone, This is my first time here on Premed 101 Forums. I'm a Canadian premed student who has been very concerned for the health and safety of examinees like myself who have and will be writing the MCAT during a pandemic. Our fellow peers who are immunocompromised are at a greater risk, however they have no choice but to put their lives at risk by writing the MCAT during these time. I myself am mainly worried about the health of an immediate family member with whom I live. The AAMC has not been cooperative enough to add more test dates in September or any in October, or to allow the exam to be taken online like the LSAT. They have also been ignoring students' concerns left and right. Whether you are a premed student who has yet to write their MCAT or one who has already written it, I urge you to come together and help support each other in order to prevent putting more students' lives at risk with increasing numbers of COVID-19 infections in Canada. I ask that you please read this petition and support it by signing and sharing it. Please feel free to remain anonymous. I appreciate your help. https://www.change.org/p/royal-college-of-physicians-and-surgeons-of-canada-withdraw-the-mcat-from-the-september-2021-canadian-medical-school-admission-requirement
Hi Everyone Over the past couple of years I have religiously scrolled through Premed101 with so many doubts in my head; coming across posts that gave me confidence and others that tore it down. After years of hard work, I have finally made that cumbersome leap from a premed to a med student (Bumblebee Class of 2024). I'm still in disbelief that I made it and hope I never lose this feeling. I've found myself reflecting on my journey thus far (thank you Covid19 for all the time) and have come to realize that perseverance and hard work were the stars in my story when everyone and everything around me told me I wasn't good enough. With about a month left before I finally embark on this next chapter of my story, I wanted to use my time to help any of you out there that feel lost, scared, or unsure. As someone that didn't have any mentors on my path to medicine, I think I would've benefited from talking to someone that had gone through the process. Please feel free to message me with any questions you have about Canadian, US, or International medical school admissions or even if you need a friend to vent it all out As a disclaimer, I'm not affiliated with any company/school and will probably not have all the answers, but I can try to give you my thoughts/advice from my own experiences. I'll be here for you if you need it

I'm a bachelor of science student in my third year of my degree in Alberta, Canada majoring in biology. These are my stats:GPA: 3.704CDAT: 19 AA19 BIO19 CHEM19 TS20 RC16 PATI've got more than 100 hours of shadowing. I've done a lot of volunteering and for long periods of time, I've also started my own club in my university and am an executive for my universities Golden Key Chapter club and have been for two years now. By the time I finish my GPA should be around a 3.75-3.8 I hope. Obviously my scores are average and my PAT is quite low. What are my chances realistically of getting into dental school in the USA or Australia? Should I even bother applying or just retake the DAT? Thank you.
