hey everyone! wondering if anyone has any insight on what grades or averages are required by any of the ontario schools for the final semester of undergrad. I see that final transcripts aren't required until June 30th, so does that mean that this semester of grades doesn't really count? I'm wondering if there is a minimum that must be achieved to keep acceptance? I've looked but I don't see any specifics. Appreciate any info!
Hi everyone, I'm currently faced with a problem, and I'm unsure of what to do. Basically, I received my first B which is bringing down my GPA for the year to a 3.84; this is with a full course load. However, I do have the opportunity to successfully petition to have this grade removed off of my transcript as I do have a valid reason. With the removal of this grade, my GPA would be a 3.93 for this year. However, removing this grade would result in me having 9 courses for the year (not a full course load). So, my question is would it be better to have a full course load and stick with the 3.84 GPA for the year, or would it be better to not have a full course load and have a 3.93 GPA for the year? Since last year my GPA was a 3.94, my cumulative GPA thus far would be a 3.89 (if I keep the course that I received a B in) or a 3.935 (if I have that course removed from my transcript). Thank you in advance, and help would be appreciated!
Hey there, does anyone know if UBC uses all your credits from the winter session to determine if you have 90%+ for the Science Scholar designation or if they use the top 27 credits like for the Trek Excellence Scholarship? Also if you have like 89.7% counting all credits, would they bump that up to 90%? Any help is appreciated!
BirdyBirdy posted a topic in General Premed DiscussionsI have just completed the first semester of second year. Unfortunately, due to a rigid work schedule and a course notorious for failing students, I now have a big ugly 70 something glaring at me from my transcript, which otherwise is filled with 89s and 90+s. Realistically, this 70 will hinder my chances of being a 3rd year applicant, which i really wanted to try to be. I'm really sad that despite all my hard work in first year and in all my other courses, I've burnt out at just the right time to bomb this one final, setting myself back tremendously. I was wondering if any successful med school applicants have ever been in a similar situation? I am also looking for some advice. It seemed like I had the potential to be a good applicant before, but now the 70 is going to be a red flag and it will also prevent me from getting scholarships or research grants. Its seems like all I can do now is quit my tiring and stressful job so I can focus on keeping my grades consistent, as well as study for the mcat. I think I will still apply in 3rd year more for the experience than anything as I still meet cutoffs. Hopefully I can learn from this and not mess up so badly in the future.
