    The path

    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
  2. I am preparing for my upcoming MCAT test date this summer on August 25, 2018. I have taken all pre-requisite courses (biochemistry, general physics, general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, psychology) except sociology. I also am graduating with a bachelors of science majoring in the biological sciences. I was wondering, would the 10th edition of ExamKrackers be sufficient for content review? Or will certain books need supplement? I have heard possibly that the biochemistry and psychology and sociology books are lacking (but only for the 9th) not much on the 10th edition. I was thinking of supplementing with Kaplan biochemistry and Khan Academy psychology and sociology 100pg document. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hello, I am looking for a chemistry tutor who can help me study for the MCAT. I wrote it last summer and did not do well enough in the chemistry section to apply to schools that I would like to apply to. Ideally I would find someone who has written the MCAT and who did well in the chemistry section. I am happy to negotiate payment depending on the individuals experience. Need to find someone in Victoria, BC. I am rewriting the MCAT April 21st so I would like to get started with a tutor sooner rather than later. If you are interested please respond here and we can get in touch. Or if you know someone who is interested please feel free to share this message! Cheers, Cameron
  4. For the University of Ottawa Med, their website says this, The equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry with or without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. Does it mean I need 2 full year credits from any of the three (e.g. 1.0 general, 1.0 organic), or 2 full year credits from all 3 (e.g. 1.0 General, 0.5 biochem, 0.5 orgo)? I'm asking this because I have 1 full year chemistry credit already and was wondering if I should take 0.5 distance studies Biochem credit during the summer (which I dont think has a lab) and then a half course some other time or 2 x 0.5 organic chemistry summer credits with labs. Also, what is Ottawa Med policy on summer courses? On their website, it says that "Marks obtained on supplementary courses taken outside the usual academic session or during a summer session will not be included in the WGPA calculation". Since chemistry is one of their pre-reqs, does that mean a summer chem course will count towards their wGPA? My program does not require chemistry so I wanted to plan carefully so I don't need to take any unnecessary L's. Recommendations/tips also much appreciated.

    Med-P or Bachelor's degree

    Hi, I have some quick questions : Can you practice medicine after getting your MDCM degree ? What is the equivalent of the Med-P program at McGill in other universities? I was also wondering if it was better for example to do a Bachelor's degree in chemistry at McGill then transfer to UofT (or any other university) for med school, instead of doing Med-P at McGill and residency in another school. Also do you have to take.the MCAT at one point in the Med-P program? It's just that I don't understand the use of not doing it ; if you transfer to any other university, they will want the MCAT score so.. I don't know if the Med-P program prepares you well for the MCAT. Sorry if this isn't making sense. I can't seem to grasp the concept of a Med-P program. It's preparatory for what ? What can you do with a MDCM degree? Is med P med school or undergraduate? Please lighten me up, thank you. P.-S.: I have read everything on the internet about the program and I still don't understand it.. sigh.
  6. Hey guys, So i was accepted into the u of calgary's biological sciences program and i was wondering what option i should take. I wanted to take psycology but i'm already taking a math, bio, chem, and physics class so I fear psycology will be to much. How hard is the class?(psyc) I'm atrocious at english so I also fear any class where I have to write an essay. I know I will have to write one at some point but hey, ignorance is bliss. Any advice anyone? Thanks a lot Mike
  7. Hello! I am a high school student and I have an interest to pursue medical school. (Its not an absolute must for me, but something I do want to consider). I'm having difficulty with chemistry (although, it may just be my teacher, my class had 22 students, and now theres only 6), and I've grown to sadly have a dislike for the subject. I had this same teacher for gr 11 chemistry too, (also gr 10, and gr 9, yay me!!). I don't want to rule out chemistry completely, because I've only had this one teacher for all of high school, but I feel like its been enough to put me off completely. With that being said, are there any biology fields with minimal chemistry? I've only completed gr 11 biology so far, and as far as I remember, it wasn't chemistry extensive. However, it may not be a good representation of relevant biology fields, because gr 11 was mostly evolution, and animal diversity. I did enjoy studying about viruses, and I think genetics is also something I may be interested; although grade 11 was mostly just punnet squares and mendelian genetics, so I'm not sure what more advanced genetics are like. Please let me know your thoughts! BTW I specifically hated the calculation aspects in thermochemistry and equilibrium, which is unfortunate, because i would assume alot of that would be relevant in biological systems and processes. one last thing: I am also applying to university, your thoughts on Uoft life science?? Thanks everyone!
  8. Many people take life sciences or biology in their undergraduate years before applying to medicine, but I'm wondering how common it is for chemistry majors to aim for medical school? I would appreciate if anyone who is majoring or has majored in chemistry, or knows someone who did, is willing to share any experiences about the path that they have taken! Does a chemistry program prepare you well for the MCAT? How challenging would you say it is, in contrast to biology or life sciences? I have yet to begin first year, so I know many things might change. I've heard that lots of life sciences programs tend to be very competitive and involve lots of memorization, and although I don't mind those two things, I also think chemistry is a subject that I would definitely be interested in learning more about!
  9. Hoping someone can help me understand logarithm rules better when it comes to acid-base chemistry. I understand how to approximate pH, pOH, pKa and pKB given a concentration or a Ka/Kb. For example: [H3O+]= 8.89 x 10^(-4) so pH = 4-0.9, pH = 3.1 I don't understand how to do the reverse and approximate [H3O+] or [OH-] from a given pOH or pH. For example, how do I find [OH-] given a pH of 3.1? Or how would I find [H3O+] given a pH of 8.2?? Thanks so much for your help, this is really bugging me!
