    Very Low GPA

    I am almost done my BSc in Biology however, I have an extremely low GPA around 2.33. Yes, I know that's terrible. I keep telling myself maybe I should choose a different path, but I just can't. I have been volunteering at the hospital for a few years now. I am not athletic and I have not been leading anything in particular. But I still want to be a doctor and now I am more mentally prepared then I was when I began initially. What can I do to increase my chances as an applicant?
  2. I cam across this recently: http://md.utoronto.ca/news/admissions-blog-upgrading-your-gpa?platform=hootsuite What caught my eye was: Another option for applicants who do not meet our GPA requirements is to enroll in a second degree. If there is a significant difference between the GPA of your two degrees, you may apply for special consideration to be assessed on only one of your degrees, as part of the Academic Explanations Essay. The essay will be reviewed by the admissions committee, and no decision on how your application was assessed will be released to you. Does anyone know much about the validity of it? I mean, I know it's a silly question because it is on their website so it must be true, but does anyone know of anyone that had this happen to them? I am a recent graduate at a top 3 US school and I am thinking of taking a second degree in psychology through Athabasca to fulfill the GPA requirements.Any information can help!

    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.

    Mcmaster Credit Reqs

    Has anyone gained entrance into McMaster without completing their 4th year of undergrad, in other words- gained admission with solely 90 credits ? Further, has anyone out there repetitively applied with solely the 3 years of undergrad and significant, health related workplace experience?
  5. Hello everyone, I'm planning to do LifeSci Specialization at Queen's. I understand that it is relatively harder than lifesci major but I'm interested in the research portion of it so I'm thinking of giving it a go. In terms of med school, i know most schools don't care what degree etc. youre taking, but would the fact that youre doing a specialization make you stand out even just a little bit? Assuming specs, gpa etc. are even, would they rather pick a lifesci ssp student or a major student if they had to choose? Thanks
  6. Hello, I am a first year undergraduate student with many questions regarding the process of being accepted into medical school. I am currently in first year general science courses and must declare my major next year. I understand that GPA is a major factor in all medical school applications, and that medical schools do not take the difficulty of particular programs into account when comparing the GPAs of applicants. I originally planned on entering life sciences, however, I have been told it will decrease my GPA and thus is not the best route. Is this true? If so, what is the recommended route for students who wish to enter medical school?

    Most Lucrative M.sc Degree?

    I am kind of at the cross road with where the heck I should aim my course selections for graduate studies. I am doing a biology degree with a minor in neuro at the moment. I heard molecular biology has a lot of flexibility and a good salary. Does anybody have insight on good science fields to get into?
