  1. Bonjour, Je débute actuellement ma troisième session au cégep et considérant la non pondération de la cote r la session précédente, je doute pouvoir atteindre la cote r nécessaire pour rentrer en médecine ou en pharmacie. Présentement j’ai une cote r de 32,75 et c’est largement pas assez pour médecine, donc je me demandais s’il y avait d’autre moyen suite au cegep de rentrer en pharmacie ( je préfère pharmacie à médecine) malgré ma cote r. J’ai entendu des gens parler de prendre une session de kinesiology afin d’augmenter leurs notes et ensuite de rentrer en medecine/pharmacie, mais je ne suis pas sûr de ces informations. Je vais faire de mon mieux afin d’augmenter ma cote r cette session, mais au cas où je n’y arrive pas j’aimerais savoir s’il existe d’autre moyen afin de rentrer en pharmacie, car c’est mon rêve. Si vous n’avez aucune idée, est-ce que vous avez la gentillesse de me proposer d’autres programmes universitaires qui ont de grande opportunité d’emploi et de rémunération. Merci et bonne continuation
  2. Bonjour! Étant en secondaire 5 avec de bonnes notes présentement, je dois choisir un Cégep pour effectuer mes études en science naturelles l’année prochaine. On le répète assez souvent; entrer en Médecine, ce ne sera pas un jeu d’enfant. Pour ce faire, croyez-vous vraiment que les différents Cégeps n’influencent aucunement une admission en médecine et une bonne CoteR ? Dans le cadre où le transport est presque de durée similaire dans tous les cas, y aurait-il une différence entre un parcours à BdeB, Saint-Laurent, ou même Maisonneuve? Est-ce que de choisir Dawson ou Brébeuf serait plus avantageux à la fin de la journée? Merci beaucoup de vos réponses!
  3. Hi everyone, I will be applying to the French stream at uOttawa this year (Social Accountability Initiative). For the OMSAS application, do I need to complete it in french? Do you know where can I attach the financial documentation necessary for the Social Accountability Initiative? Also, I come from a single-parent household. Do I need to write an explanatory letter as to why I am only including my single-parent's financial documentation? Thanks for your help!
  4. Hey! Did anyone apply through the CNFS or applied in previous years and got in?
  5. Hi all, I am wondering if any body has advice on my current problem: I speak French decently well and have taken Core French (NON-IMMERSION) from Grade 4 to my third year of University. My issue is that I don't have a broad enough scope of the language (essentially the vocab) to talk in-depth about things like politics, MEDICINE, science etc. but I am more than capable of having a normal conversation. If I select on OMSAS that I am bilingual is it likely that getting nervous and messing up my French will tank the whole interview/disqualify me? Or would it be safer to select that I only speak English and then possibly speak about some of my french ECs if I am given the chance to (ie. In an english interview if they see and ask about some of my french ECs I can show that I do speak french to an extent)? Essentially I am just wondering what their classification of bilingualism is.... complete fluency like a native speaker? I know this seems confusing but I am just looking for a second opinion. Thanks!
  6. Hi, I'm applying to the French stream at uOttawa this coming semester. Is anyone willing to look over my ABS (in french) in the next few days please? Thank you!
  7. Hello everyone. I am a McGill medical student interested in learning French. I have absolutely zero knowledge of the French language. I am looking for advice from some of the more senior members of the forum who were in a similar situation. My aim is to reach a level where I can have a functional conversation with a patient in French (i.e be able to express myself as well as understand what the patient is telling me). I am not interested in learning how to read or write at the moment. What is the best and most efficient way to reach that level? I heard about the Medical French Workshops organized by McGill. I have also heard about online programs such as Duolingo and Rosetta Stone. What is the best and most efficient way to go about this? Also, how long would it take me to be able to have a functional conversation with a patient in French? Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated, especially from people who were in a similar situation and who have first-hand experience in learning French from scratch. Thanks.
  8. Hi, I'm writing the CASPer test this fall in French. I've been trying to find french practice tests online but can't seem to find any:/ Would anyone be able to share what resources they used to study for the french CASPer? Also, would anyone be willing to help me practice? Thanks!
  9. Hi! I recently asked a prof (by email) to write me a reference letter for my med school application. They agreed but also asked what aspects I wanted them to emphasize in the letter. It’s my first time applying and I have no clue what that means. I thought the prof would know better than me what to focus on (because they can tell what I’m good at?). I don’t want to say « i don’t know » because that sounds bad to me. Does anyone know how to respond to them? Any advice is greatly appreciated. —— Also, for the reference letter, do I just contact the referee through OMSAS (once they agree)? Is It an actual letter or just a form they have to fill in? Thanks!
  10. Hey, I really need some advice as to what to do next please I will be graduation in Spring 2020 from an Honors in Biomedical Science at uOttawa. I have a wGPA of 3.81 (and a cGPA of 3.72) so far b/c I really messed up in first year but I'm trying my best to raise it to at least a 3.9+ so I can apply to the French Stream at uOttawa (and other schools too). I'm also writing my MCAT next summer with a goal of 515+. I would say that my EC's are pretty good. The thing is I'm applying to uOttawa's medical school this Fall 2019 but as my GPA is on the low side, I might not get in. I'm just not sure what to do while I wait to apply next year again. I didn't want to do a Master's b/c I truly don't feel like I would have a passion for it. What about doing a 5th year? Can I add a minor and do a 5th year? How bad/good does that look to medical schools? If anyone has other suggestions, please feel free to reply. Thanks!
  11. Hi, I'm a 4th year biomed student at the university of Ottawa. My questions are: - Does NOSM use a weighted GPA system? Or is just my cGPA? - Is there a difference between the English and French applicants like there is at uOttawa? Thanks
  12. I'm about to go into my 4th in biomedical science at uOttawa and I'm in a French extended program. Here's my info: - 1st year GPA: 3.3 2nd year GPA: 3.9 3rd year GPA: 3.86 wGPA with OMSAS: 3.81 - Applying to the French stream at uOttawa and NOSM - EC's: French/English tutor, pianist at a church, choir, band, physiotherapy clerk, volunteered at a hospital, piano teacher at elementary school, private tutor (very brief), Sunday lesson teacher for kids, president/founder of a club and VP of another, etc. - I live in Ottawa A lot of my EC's are centered around music and tutoring. I don't have 32+ entries like most people and honestly, I feel like my GPA is quite mediocre for med school. I am going to try my hardest to raise it in my 4th year and then write the MCAT (so I can apply to more schools if uOttawa doesn't work out). But, right now what are my chances of even getting an interview? Thanks a lot in advance!

  14. Hi All, So I've been accepted into physio at Ottawa U. However I was wondering if there were any anglophone Physio students out there who could sort of give me an idea of how hard the french is. I have a working knowledge of french and can speak well enough, however I am just really unsure about the course content and style of teaching and if I would be able to keep up with it all. I have never taken a university level course in french and have not been in a french class in 4 years. Just looking for some advice! Thanks
  15. Bonjour, Qui veux pratiquer avec nous pour les entrevues française? De préférence à Montréal. _______________________________________________________________ Hello, Anyone wants to practice with us for the french interviews? Preferably in Montreal.
  16. Hi everyone! I just have a quick question to ask all of you. I was just wondering if its possible to learn French from scratch while still at University. I think that French is such an amazing language and aside from English, I already speak another language and I want to add French under my belt. The last time I was ever in a pretty serious French class was during Junior High when we were doing some very basic French and doing French bingo (ever had those in your school?). Anyways, I took a basic French class in High school but had to drop it because everyone in the class already knew how to speak and write French fluently and I simply felt inferior to everyone (most of them were French immersion students who have been speaking French since Kindergarten)... It also doesn't help the fact that I failed my very first French assignment in high school (if memory serves me right, I believe that I received 10% out of a 100%). I couldn't right a simple sentence, let alone a paper on a topic. And, according to my teacher, I will not succeed in her class if I continued to take it and I will just be a failure in her class... It was quite mean of her to say that but I somewhat understood where she was coming from and I've already forgiven her for her action. So here's the million dollar question, Would it be possible to learn French again from scratch? I think that learning how to speak and maybe even write French could be beneficial in my future. Can anyone please refer me to a website or maybe a good book to help me learn French again (aside from a French-dictionary which is quite dry)? Or does anyone have an app that they would recommend? Thank you all in advance and Have a great day!
  17. 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
  18. Sooo now that CASPER is finished (and miraculously seemed to go ok for someone like me whose French was quite rusty...) would anyone be interested in prepping for a potential French interview in Toronto or online? Also, could previous applicants or current students in the French Stream kindly give suggestions on the best ways to prepare for the interview? Any specific prep companies or resources? I think I will need a lot of prep and help to express myself well during the interview if I am lucky enough to receive one. Merci!
  19. Hi everyone! I've been looking into the difference between applying to the French vs. English stream at Ottawa med. I understand that the French stream is less competitive so I was thinking of applying for that stream. French is not my first language but I can express myself well enough to make it through I believe. Has anyone who has studied English applied for the French stream and gotten an interview? How did things go and how strict are they with assessing your proficiency in writing/speaking? I would really appreciate any advice/help! Also, how important are extracurriculars with OttawaMed?

  21. Salut! Longtime lurker, first time poster-- and I'm working on my written French, so I'll stick to English for clarity. After a lot of soul searching, I have realized that I cannot see myself as anything but a physician. However, I have a different situation that is leaving me confused at the application process for the QC schools. I went to a university in the States that technically doesn't calculate GPA. They give A, B, C or NC; with the option of taking a class P/F to explore your intellectual curiosity. With that, I'm unsure/ worried on how the French schools will convert my grades to a coteR, since I'm unsure if they will consider the grading system of my school (plus standard conversions that McGill will do are ROUGH; A= 4.0, B= 3.0, C=2.0... courses were curved hard so I have quite a few A cusps (>85%) that were curved down to Bs which kill the arbitrary GPA). I have a BA in Health and Human Biology ("3.4" thanks to a couple of C's in my first year ), with a MSc in Biotechnology ("4.0"). Since graduating 2 years ago, I've been working as a research assistant. 1- Am I totally screwed for the French schools? I know they only look at your GPA, but I want to work in QC and really believe that I need to do my studies in French to be 100% comfortable (and completely competent) to work with Francophone patients. Do they put any value in MSc degrees or weigh the grades the same as UG grades? 2- I'm missing a few prereqs (physics :/), will they be considered if taken as an independent student, or do they need to be apart of a bachelor's? I could also take a few other classes to try to up my UG GPA... 3- I need to take the MCAT for McGill since my UG is from outside of Canada. The French schools do not require the MCAT, but, if I have a score (which I will for McGill) would they consider it in the application? This would help me immensely... 4- McGill admins have suggested a second degree to help with the poor GPA conversion of my GPA-less school. Does UdeM have second degree programs? If so, would you apply as normal and then get exemptions afterwards for courses? Sorry for the long post, I've been unsuccessful at contacting the appropriate admins for info or finding relevant topics here, so I thought I would start a new thread for some advice. Thank you in advance
  22. Hi all, Just wondering about the level of French proficiency needed on day 1. I do understand there is some interaction with francophone patients and staff, and I want to make sure I am ready. I have never officially studied French, and most of my education has been informal - family, tv, books etc. I have decided to put a lot of time improving my French skills this year, and was wondering what goal should I sat for me, to be comfortable at day 1.
  23. Salut tout le monde, I created this thread so applicants to the French Stream 2018 can post their wGPA and ECs to gauge the pool and to support each other. Bonne chance à tous et à toutes!
  24. Hello everyone. i hope you are all doing fine. i have a question regarding the hidden minimum gpa for successful applicant in the uOttawa french stream. i'am currently in my third year undergrad in biomedical sciences and i'am applying this year to uOttawa. my weighted gpa (using only full time sessions and dismissing summer courses while multiplying my second year x 2) is a 3.8222 gpa. i know that for gatineau residents the minimum for applying is a 3.7 and that is fine. but since there is no available information at all regarding the averages of each years successful applicants or interviewees. i can only speculate upon what my chances are to get an interview. i was told by one of my professors that my chances to get an interview is a 3.822 is 0. so i would like to have some input from anyone in the know, or who is currently in the french stream and knows the lowest gpa in their class or some kind of average. thank you all and sorry for my horrible english.
  25. Here are my stats for my uOttawa application: Location: OOP (Quebec) Stream: French GPA: 4.0 Research: Summer internship with CRSNG scholarship in gyneco-oncology. Education: Second year university with CEGEP diploma. What are my chances to get an interview?
