iWizard posted a topic in General Premed DiscussionsHi everyone, I'm looking for some advice about what to do to improve my chances to get into med school in Canada. My OMSAS GPA for my first three undergrad years are as follows: Year 1: 3.40 Year 2: 3.52 (I only took 7 instead of 10 courses because of a health issue) Year 3: 3.60 I've been struggling with time management and test anxiety issues, which is partially what I attribute my low grades to. I know that I am capable of getting better grades, I just have to develop better study skills. I'm finally starting to get treated for the anxiety (I was blanking on tests), but I'm still trying to get better about using my time more effectively. My ECs: -1.5 years as a volunteer writing tutor (5hrs/wk) -2 going on 3 years as a Residence Assistant (~15 hrs/wk) -Will have 1 semester of research experience next year -Recipient of a humanitarian scholarship -Next year, volunteering to support Syrian refugees (5hrs/wk) -Next year, an executive of a campus club, planning volunteer activities in the community (5hrs/wk) I'm obviously not applying for medical school this year because of the low GPA, but I was wondering what advice you guys might have for me for after I finish my undergrad in a year? I can't afford to apply to international med schools, the Caribbean or the U.S., so Canada is pretty much my only option.
