  1. Hey all this is my first post ever so I'm sorry Stats: annual / cGPA 1st year: 2.73 / 2.73 (1 semester with 4 courses) 2nd year: 3.08 / 2.91 (1 semester with 4 courses) 3rd year: 3.79/ 3.21 (1 semester with 4 courses) currently in 4th year and I'm estimating 3.8+/ cGPA3.35~ 2 years of research, volunteer and community stuff Option 1: take a fifth year of easy-ish courses to boost my GPA --> even if i get straight As prolly won't be competitive enough for canada ~3.47 Option 2: take a fifth year --> fulfill 1 year of physics and 1 year or gen/orgo chemistry for US med school (the problem with this is I go to U of T... it's nearly impossible to do well in these courses) Option 3: graduate this summer with ~3.35 --> take the 2 physics and chem courses to fulfill US med schools as a non-degree student at u of t or another university Option 4: graduate this summer --> take the US prerequisites online while completing a masters OR graduate after the fifth year and then take the US prereqs while completing a masters.
  2. I know this question is asked by countless members on this forum, but I am currently in a rut. I am currently a U of Saskatchewan student (Canadian) and would like advice regarding premed as I am currently dealing with a low gpa for my first and second years of my degree. My gpa calculations are as followed (OMSAS) 1st and 2nd year: 3.00 gpa (73 and 72) (1 semester with 4 courses) 3rd year: 3.9 (86) First semester of 4th year: 3.7 (84.2) If I finish with a 86 overall in my fourth year, I calculate that I will still only have a 78 percent which is too low to be competitive in Canadian med schools. At this point, I don't know what would be the best thing to do as I am almost done my degree I hope to do the mcat during the summer of 2019 I have been doing volunteering at a student run clinic, but am searching for other opportunities to volunteer in. (any advice on what I ec's I should do would be appreciated!) Thank you guys in advance and do let me know if I need to clarify!
  3. I completed my pharmacy degree abroad (Egypt). My parents decided to leave Canada and move back to Egypt, and guess what? Had to leave with them. However, i decided to move back to Canada after completing pharmacy. Im currently a licensed Pharmacist in Ontario. I hold a bachelors degree and wish to apply to medical school. My average in pharmacy was around 86%. I still need to take my MCATs. I am also thinking about completing my PharmD, in hopes to strengthen my application. Im not sure where to start, and do i even have a chance? Will my international undergrad hold be back a little bit ? I am looking for an advice or any feedback Thanks for taking the time to read through this :)
  4. 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?
  5. Hello, I know everyone must be tired of seeing these types of "what are my chances" posts but I could really use some advice. I am currently in my last year of my undergrad at UofC and eligible to graduate this spring. Unfortunately, med school has only become a dream of mine in the last year or so and my first two years GPA does not reflect this desire at all. Here is a breakdown: I have taken 5 courses each semester for my entire degree. GPA: 1st year: 2.73 2nd year: 3.02 3rd year: 3.61 4th year: 4.00 EC's Do pracitucms count for this? If so, I done extensive work in my community with local organizations working with individuals with disabilities. I have spent time at The Association for the Rehabilitation of the Brain Injured and done an internship at Emily follensbee (a school for children with multiple and complex learning needs). I have spent the last year working with the Government of Alberta creating and delivering a prevention presentation on fetal alcohol spectrum disorder that I have delivered to grade 8 and 11 classrooms as well as university classrooms. I have been lucky enough to have done a lot of traveling over the course of my degree (20 countries in three years), and I am in the process of planning a trip to Peru with a previous professor of mine to assist her with research as well as doing some volunteering. I have also been doing volunteering within the university and external organizations on my own time. I have been working one job for the past 4 years (just serving at a restaurant, so not very relevant). I do not have any publications at this point. My understanding is that UofC will use your three best years to count your GPA but even with dropping my first year that would leave me with a 3.54 which is not competitive. Any advice going forward? As I see it I have three options: 1. take a 5th or 6th year of my current degree 2. take a second undergrad 3. apply for grad school (although I feel like this would be the least useful) Any recommendations going forward would be very much appreciated!!! Thank you!
  6. Hello, Of course there is no official cut-off, but given 10 OOP with historic average of >3.9, should i even consider McGill with GPA below 3.7? i would have a solid EC letter for my low first year GPA, (2nd and 3rd were 3.8-3.9); and my second degree is a professional degree. any thoughts?
  7. Hey guys, I'm going into Second year at UBC and I'm just concerned about my grades at this point... wondering if I can make a come back. At the end of first year I got a 67.6 avg ..are there anyone with this experience?? Did you make a comeback ? If I can make a comeback which schools would I be exempted from ? And which schools i have hope for assuming I will do way way way better in future years. Also I'm in this new program B+MM where I have a master's management (business) degree at the end of 5 years at ubc. Would this benefit me for Med school ? And I know I really sucked for 1st year, I had a cancer scare and that just messed me up. It's my fault ik.. I will work better..
