  1. Hello Everyone, Did not see a topic yet related to this. Wondering if anyone heard back from manitoba yet?
  2. Hi all, I just have a question about possibly taking a 5th year in Undergrad at the U of M. Does anyone know how the U of M medical school view this on their application? Do they look down upon this? Does the U of M also consider the grades from the 5th year in their AGPA calculations? I was looking to take a 5th year since my current GPA is waaaay below the minimum requirement (even if AGPA is calculated). Please help! Thank you all!
  3. Im applying to both schools next year and I am wondering how to prepare what to expect for the critical skills test. The topic is a surprise, how are we to formulate an essay in one hour on it? If anybody has information about their experience and what I can expect from the prompt, I would greatly appreciate it.
  4. Hey guys, I've got about two weeks to decide where I'll be going for undergrad. My plan is to pursue general science (mayble a major in physics) for premed and then apply to med school. I've received a large scholarship to Queen's, so my options are down to Queen's and UofM. The cost to attend either of them is irrelevant. I'm most concerned about keeping up a high GPA and having opportunities to make myself competitive for medicine. I'm worried that, if I go to a highly selective school like Queen's, I will be overshadowed by the sheer number of high caliber students (based on entering averages). Also, does anyone know if they grade on a bell curve? From my limited research, it seems that a bell curve is quite harmful to GPAs if you're trying to be in the top 10% of the class. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, Yashi
  5. Hi there, My ultimate goal is to become a sports medicine doctor. Right now I am looking for courses or anything that would complement my application and also help me gain experience in the field. I have done first aid courses and I am looking to take a biomechanics course and a sports psychology course. Does anyone have other ideas of resources I could look into? I am currently living in Winnipeg doing my MSc so if there are any local resources I could look into that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hi, I'm interested in applying for an Emerg Med elective in either the University of Saskatchewan or the University of Manitoba. Could someone who has knowledge of these programs comment on what experience I should expect as a med student. - Are the preceptors good at teaching? - Do you get lots of hands on experience? - Good opportunity to get reference letters? Thanks!
  7. I wanted to make a list of medical school requirements (what/how many courses you need, what year they look at, any special eligibility to drop grades (e.g. UofT if you take a full courseload, you get to drop your lowest mark during that year), if school looks at your summer GPA. I have a makeshift list so far, but if anybody could add to it that would be great <3 When people starts adding, I'll finish with a nicer looking chart. Just need help with UBC Dalhousie (NOTHING): To be eligible to apply to Dalhousie Medical School, a full course load of five full classes in each of the two most senior years of the baccalaureate degree submitted for assessment is required. This must be the case regardless of the course load required by the program in which you are enrolled. Only fall and winter terms are used for assessment. Summer courses do not count towards GPA or course load requirements. No specific courses are required, but students are encouraged to pursue challenging and diverse topics, and to have a natural progression in their course selection of the degree being completed. McGill: 2 biology, 2 chemistry, 2 physics, 1 organic chemistry McMaster: An overall simple average will be calculated using the grades from all undergraduate degree level courses ever taken (with the exception of credits taken on exchange outside of Canada/USA). Work of different years is treated equally. This average is calculated by the applicant on the OMSAS Academic Record Form and verified on the OMSAS Verification Report which is sent to applicants. McMaster University may also review and revise this average. The marks from supplementary and summer courses will be included in the GPA calculation. Courses for which a "Pass" grade is assigned are counted for credit, but will not be included in the GPA calculation. In order for the GPA to be evaluated, independent grades from a minimum of 5 half-year or 5 full-year courses in total, are required, without which the application will not be considered. Queens: Degree programs or individual courses are not considered a factor in the calculation of GPAs Calculations include grades from all courses included on the transcript, including repeated courses Courses with Pass/Fail grades or transfer credits (including International Baccalaureate, Advance Placement and CEGEP programs) are not included No adjustments are made based on course load or course levels Calgary (NOTHING): The Cumming School of Medicine does not require that students undertake a formal pre-medical program. No specific courses are required for application or acceptance to the MD program. The admissions committee recommends that applicants consider taking as many of the courses listed in the Applicant Manual as their schedules allow, as the content of these courses will be helpful in preparing for the Medical College Admission Test and during the MD program. Whether or not an applicant has taken these courses at the time of application will not be taken into consideration in scoring the academic record. Students should ensure that the courses they choose satisfy the degree requirements of the undergraduate faculty in which they are registered. Manitoba (what?): The College of Medicine welcomes applicants from all provinces and territories. Up to 5% of the class will be selected from this pool. The Admissions Committee defines Out of Province as those who are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, but are not a permanent resident of Manitoba. Eligibility requirements remain the same for this applicant pool and you are welcome to apply if you meet or exceed the minimum requirements. However, the Admissions Committee discourages individuals from applying who have an AGPA lower than 3.94 and an operative MCAT score lower than 10.75. If you fall into one or both of these categories, you have a low chance of receiving an invitation to interview. You will need the science courses Chemistry 40S and Biology 40S or 40G in preparation for university studies. Many students also take Physics 40S in preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). In addition, you will need Math 40S (pre-calculus or applied) and definitely need English 40S or French 40S. Ottawa (need org chem for an equivalent of 2 full year courses of chem): One full year course (or two semester courses) in General Biology including laboratory session; One full year course (or two semester courses) in Humanities / Social Sciences; The equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. A full-time academic year where the equivalent of four (4) full-year courses is taken is accepted and counted in the WGPA calculation only if the missing course/credit is completed either as an additional course within another academic year or as a summer course. Individual courses taken during a summer session are accepted for the credit value in this instance however the mark obtained is not counted in the calculation of the WGPA. Any year with less than four full-year courses will not count as a full-time year of study. A full-time summer semester does not replace a semester of studies within an academic year. AP, IB and transfer credits are not recognized as fulfilment of full time studies requirement. Toronto: two full-course equivalents (FCEs) in life sciences and one FCE in a social science, humanities or language UBC: The fuck? 6 credits in english. How does this work. Is that 3.0 credits in English??? Western: Applicants must meet the minimum GPA in each of the two best undergraduate years with a full course load of 5 full or equivalent courses (30 credit hours) taken between September and April. Each of the two years used for the GPA requirement must have at least 3 full course equivalents whos e published level is at or above the year of study. For example, in your third year of study, 3 of 5 full course equivalents must be at the 3rd year-level or above. Academic transcripts must clearly show that applicants have met this course load/level requirement.
  8. Hi all! Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg is hiring a research assistant for the multiple sclerosis clinic. This is a great opportunity for premeds to get expose to working in a hospital and close interaction with patients on a daily basis. It's an excellent stepping stone for anyone interested in medical school or any other health-related careers, and allows lots of opportunities for additional research with the multiple sclerosis research team. The posting can be found here: https://www.brainhunter.com/frontoffice/seekerViewJobDetailAction.do?sitecode=pl545&jobId=2242619&page=search&external=#searchSection I worked this position for the past 2 years and found it to be a valuable experience and I highly recommend it. If anyone has any questions about what this job is like please send me a PM or comment below, I'd be happy to share.

  11. Hi, Everyone, I'm about to submit my application to Manitoba, I have several referees already wrote reference letters for me for this cycle to other MD schools. Which 3 should I choose for Manitoba? 1. A family friend of my parents, who knew me before I was born, who is a MD in USA and will write me a VERY good letter. 2. A TaeKwonDo assistant instructor will write me a VERY good letter who I learned TaeKwonDo in my university for 2 years, twice a week, 2 hours each course. 3. A hospital volunteering services administrator,I think will write me a good letter, where I volunteered for a year, 2 hours each week. 4. A Ph.D. candidate and an instructor of my social study course for a semester with A- and will write me a VERY good letter. 5. A biology professor and associate dean of department who I have a semester course with A, will write a good letter, I think. 6. A biochemistry professor who I have a semester course with A+, will write a good letter, I think. 7. A horse farm manager, where I worked last summer, two days each week, will write me a good letter, I think. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks.
