  1. Hey, I'm a Canadian premed student who's currently in a bit of a pickle. I'm considering dropping a course in which I have received a mark of 81% on the first midterm, but am anticipating a somewhat lower mark (~60 ish?) on the second midterm, though there's no valid evidence that I would necessarily achieve such a low mark, apart from the empty feeling in my stomach recalling myself winging a somewhat highly weighted question. On the flipside, it seems that many students had a similar experience on the second midterm, so my reluctance to drop the course stems from the notion that there might be some sort of grade curve. There are additionally occasional quizzes which I anticipate I can achieve relatively high grades in to somewhat alleviate the low midterm grade. I would just like to ask you if you believe it is worth dropping this course - or if I should just stick with it and maintain my 5 course workload for this semester? Thanks in advance.
  2. Heyo I'm graduating from Western this year in Health Sciences and looking to take a 5th year as a special student. I have contacted uwo, mcmaster, queens and uoft, all of them have said the special year will be considered as long as I meet the quota for a full course load (Western hasnt gotten back to me yet but I think this is the case for them as well). My question is- In Queens' email, they said a full course load is 3 courses/semester, does it make sense to only take 3 courses each semester in my 5th year? Im not sure if thats a common strategy because on one hand, it is likely easier to do better with only 3 courses but im worried about any caveats with specific schools or even the fact that 3 courses might not bear that much weight on improving my overall GPA. (The goal of the 5th year in general is to boost gpa). What are your thoughts on this? Should I just do a 5.0 like I have been every year just to make sure I'll be good? Thanks!
  3. Hello! I'm new here so be gentle with me. I don't have many friends to talk to so I thought I could ask you guys. 1. I was wondering when I should take the MCATs. I heard from a friend that she's taking it in July because everybody will take it in August and that will result in more competition. I'm a second year student who wants to apply to Canadian schools like UofT, so I'm hoping to take it once this summer and be able to have the option of retaking it next summer in case I don't do as well as I could've. Is this a common choice? Would it look bad? 2. There is a Prep course I was looking at that is about $2300 for 3 months. It is PREP101. Has anybody taken this before and would you recommend it? Would you recommend other prepcourses besides this. I would like to note that I would like to take a prepcourse, and would prefer not to study the MCATS by myself. 3. I've been diagnosed with ADHD and been on vyvanse. It has work wonders for me, and I don't think I need accommodations - but I just wanted to hear overall thoughts of what people with ADHD recommend. Just the intense length of the MCATS might be stressful, but hey, that's everybody! Would med schools be biased (negatively) towards people who have untimed exams? Thank you for taking the time to read this
  4. Hi guys, I'm looking to take an online physiology course this summer. Has anyone taken: BIOL 2000 at Guelph with Nicole Campbell or PHYSIOL 2130 at Western with Dr. Bell? Any feedback on the course/professor/marking would be appreciated.. Thank you
  5. HI guys, Can anyone recommend a 3 credit online physiology course or know of any universities that offer an online physiology course? Feedback? Suggestions? Thanks!
  6. Hi guys! Can anyone recommend an online (3 or 6 credit) physiology course offered by a particular university or professor? What was the difficulty level like? Thank you for your help!!
  7. Hi everyone, I just finished my first year of the Medical Sciences (BMSc) program at UWO, and course selection for 2nd year is coming up soon. By the end of 2nd year I need to have decided on a module for 3rd and 4th year. The available modules are Biochem, biochem and cell bio, biochem of infection and immunity, biochem and pathology of human disease, chemical bio, computational bio, epidemiology and biostats, interdisciplinary med sci, med biophysics, mediacal cell bio, medical health informatics, micorbiology and immunology, pathology and toxicology, pharmacology, physiology, physiology and pharmacology. I need some help on choosing my module, or at least narrowing it down because I need to choose courses for second year that will fill the requirements. Any advice on this process would be helpful, thanks!
  8. Hi, I am planning to take a fifth year at UBC as a visiting student and would find it really helpful if I could shortlist some upper year bird courses to select from the sea of courses. I am a biology major but I think I might just do a year of economics but regardless, please suggest me some GPA boosters in general. I tend to go with non essay type courses, preferably multiple choice exams (darn those initial years you spend to master the art of MCQs only to find long answers in upper years) Thanks a lot.
  9. Hello, everyone. So I've just finished my second year of my undergrad. I want to retake three courses in the summer because my school's retake policy is that they replace your first grade with whatever grade you received after the retake (even if it's worse). Now I'm aware that most med schools don't look at summer courses, especially for GPA considerations. I want to retake these courses for my GPA for graduation—I want to graduate with a 90% average, and this is pretty much impossible unless I get rid of some of my lowest grades. So what I'm saying is, I want to retake these three courses during the summer to boost my GPA, but not for med school requirements, just for graduation purposes. What I'm wondering is, do med schools see courses you take during the summer, even if they don't consider them in GPA calculation? And if they do see them, do they think badly of retaken courses in the summer? The courses I'm planning on retaking are: Stats, Anatomy, and Biomolecules (Biochem). I've seen a lot of posts about retakes, and summer courses but not about retaking courses in the summer! Thanks guys!
