  1. Hello, I am applying to university soon and I would like to stay in Toronto as much as possible. For all my life, I have always been considering the traditional route of taking Life sciences to go to Med school, but my options have opened ever since I started to play the harp. I am graduating from the IB program and I want to avoid workload stress however, I do understand that taking music as a major will require a lot of my time, I heard, double the amount as normal undergrads do. Despite that, I also play music as a form of de-stressing and I go to it when I don't want to study. I also heard that there are a lot of advantages with being a music major, with it improving your likelihood in getting into university because of uniqueness, dexterity, reflectivity etc. I want to become a coroner so I definitely have to take Med school. I'm not actual sure how university works with all the majors, minors, specialists, degrees etc. So considering that I want to have the minimum amount of stress while still having the required courses for Med school, what would be the best options for me? Major in music and take bio courses during summer school? (yikes) Take Life sciences and somehow find a way to do music (um?) or are there any options? If I take music as a major, would I have to take a gap year before I get into med school? Thank you so much!
  2. Many people take life sciences or biology in their undergraduate years before applying to medicine, but I'm wondering how common it is for chemistry majors to aim for medical school? I would appreciate if anyone who is majoring or has majored in chemistry, or knows someone who did, is willing to share any experiences about the path that they have taken! Does a chemistry program prepare you well for the MCAT? How challenging would you say it is, in contrast to biology or life sciences? I have yet to begin first year, so I know many things might change. I've heard that lots of life sciences programs tend to be very competitive and involve lots of memorization, and although I don't mind those two things, I also think chemistry is a subject that I would definitely be interested in learning more about!
  3. Hey fellows, I'm a student in high-school grade 12 and I got the results for this semester and I've got 90+%. That basically means I'm eligible to apply to any science program I wish to apply to and I have to make a decision, and quick before the deadline of early admission. I want to do either CMMB(general not honors) or Kinesiology(general). I liked CMMB after I checked out the CMMB course outlines about immunology, virology, human genetics and stuff like that and it really intrigues me. Maybe because I really loved genetics in grade 12. But looking at the kinesiology major, It's equally fun because, common, it's all about the human anatomy and physiology! Bottom line: In matters of interest, I love both equally. This is my second problem, Since my main aim is to go for med school, I'd choose an 'Easier course' for a higher potential GPA and more time for ECs, but I don't have anyone's views on these programs at University of Calgary. It would be really really really really helpful if you would share your experiences/views! You know, in terms of the nature of professors, course difficulty, etc. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Hey fellow future doctors! I need some help deciding in what program I should take for my Undergrad. For you to know i'm currently enrolled in a High School in India although i'm originally Canadian. I really love human physiology and want to become a doctor. I am a founder of an NGO here posted as the General secretary(sounds too cool but its just me and around 20 of my friends in it) and have 4 years of voluntary work from grade 8 to 12. Now why i'm telling you this is to ask you are there any programs you are aware of which might grant scholarships for my voluntary work? Also i have about 92% in my first sem and expect to get around 95+ in finals. I've shortlisted these pre-med programs(priority wise) 1) University of Alberta-BSc. with specialization in Physiology and developmental biology 2) University of Alberta-BSc. with honours in Physiology 3) University of Calgary-Bachelor of health science (biomedical sciences) 4) University of British Columbia-Biochemistry(just to be safe, my folks are from Vancouver) 5) Simon Fraser University-Bachelor of health science What are my chances to get into any of these? What would you recommend and why? What would be the easiest degree to get a high GPA? And one final question, what does the credits and course load mean? It might sound stupid but I really need to figure that out because I find it everywhere when applying. I enjoy all these subjects very passionately but just want to decide what would give me high GPA and would be not that tough. Thanks for helping me in Advance!
