    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    Hello everyone, Let us present ourselves: we are student ambassadors of McGill Medicine. Not too long ago, we were in the applicant seats and we sympathize with the anxiety that comes along with that role. In fact, some of us roamed the pages here at premed101 and asked questions of our own in the hope of elucidating some of our worries about the application process and student life at McGill Medicine. We are glad to tell you that we are happy with our choice and this has brought us to pilot this Q&A initiative, where we hope to give back some of the good advice we have received along the way. Please do note that although we are affiliated with McGill's admission committee, the opinions we give here represent an honest and subjective view that is independent from the admissions committee. Now that is cleared up...Dear applicants, please ask away! Wishing you the very best during this application session, McGill Med Ambassadors Questions list (updated infrequently, search is your friend!) MMI Tips Could you describe a typical day at McGill medical school? How much "free time" do you have in the program?What is the general atmosphere between students, do you feel some kind of competition? Are you graded, or is the program pass/fail? What are some aspects of McGill and/or the program that you don't like and could be improved? Information about the MD/PhD program (specifically the interview process) Information for applicants who do not speak French, French language requirements How many people from the waiting list are admitted every year for Quebec university level? Does McGill use APP ("apprentissage par problème") like Udem ? or something similar ? What time the interview day usually ends? Which grades are considered by the CaRMS, as some residency programs allow a certain percentage to the grades obtained during the «pré-clinique»? What is the difference between a task oriented station and a simulation station at the MMI? What should we really wear for the MMI? See also: Should I wear a suit for the MMI? Does it look bad if we glimpse at our watch a couple of times during the MMI? Is there a place where you can check-in luggage (for OOP or international students flying in)?  How are the final decisions are made after the interview? Is it possible to apply to both Med and Dent at McGill at the same time? When do we get our McGill email addresses after we are admitted? So do university level in province, NTP in province and CEGEP have different wait lists, or do they all compete under the IP category? What is the immunization process for admitted students? For CEGEP students, would my admission be rescinded if I do not graduate on time (end of May) and take a summer class to graduate before July 1st? How does the admission process works for Ph.D students that are almost done and want to apply to the MD.CM program? Concerning the location of the MMI at McGill - from the information they give, there is a coat check. How secure is this? I have to bring my laptop and school books with me to town... is it safe? What is the everyday academic schedule for a 1st year to 2nd year MD student at McGill? See also: How is the schedule like during FMD? In average, how many hours do you need to study per day? What are the longitudinal family med time requirements? Until which time point in the MD training should you totally forget to hold a part time job? What is the average leisure time you can enjoy per day? Does McGill offer early decision admission? If so, how does it work and when is the application due? Can CEGEP courses count towards Recommended Physiology Courses? Does taking 3 and/or 4 courses per semester lead to an automatic refusal? If an interview is obtained on the basis of a second undergrad, are you required to complete this second degree with a full course load and obtain the diploma? Do you remember completely messing up a station or two but still end up getting in? What role to CEGEP grades play in my Med-P admission process? How many student retake the Med-P year and why? Science GPA vs. Recommended courses ... which are taken into account post interview? How much or how little should I practice for the interview? I applied for extenuating circumstances and I want to know if they will be considered for my admission, should I write to the admission office or should I not ask? Will French affect my learning and interactions with peers? WHY McGill? HOW is the the curriculum structured? Does accepting your McGill Med offer removes you from consideration at Ontario schools? What do they mean by "studies currently in progress must be at a level comparable to past academic performance."? Will my acceptance be revoked?? When are we supposed to send our first tuition payments? Is 26 years old too old to start medical school? How can I join the class of 2021 facebook group? Does the admission committee discriminate against applicants who have a second degree? How does course replacement for science prerequisites work? Will increasing my GPA by retaking courses during fall help me to get an interview? What should I do if my account on Minerva shows that I am supposed to pay international fees even though I am a Qc resident? Are there good study spaces on campus? How many times can I apply to medical school? Does McGill offer public transportation passes? What should I do if my science prerequisites expire soon? How are block exams delivered? Are laptops required? See also: Are there any recommended PC laptops? For those who have two undergraduate degrees: if the first degree had some terms of part-time studying, can we still be considered on the basis of our 2nd degree? Is the exam software compatible with iPads and tablets? How hard is it to get into the program as an NTP? Does the Nutrition and Dietetics program in Toronto registers as a "professional program"? Where can we get some information about reapplication? Is it recommended to do observerships during first year? Does McGill arrange accommodations for rotations outside of Montreal? Can the third-year elective be done outside of Canada? How many weeks of pre-CaRMS electives are there? What does the admission committee mean by "maintaining a comparable academic performance"? How hard is it to match to a US residence if coming from McGill? How does it work when we have to sign a CEQ? When will the FB group of Class of 2022 be created? Is it possible to finish my graduate studies during medical school? Should I expect a formal acceptance letter via snail mail? How are official documents usually delivered? In which building are classes mostly held? Can the science prerequisites be taken at other universities/as online courses? Is the list of reasons for deferral on the McGill Website exhaustive? Do McGill students need to upload a final transcript? When does the security check by CMQ happen? Are classes recorded? Is it possible to re-take on the science prerequisite courses in order to increase my GPA?

    Graduate housing

    Hi guys! Has anyone applied for graduate housing in the previous years? If so, how did you like the experience? Would you recommend it or is renting an apartment off-campus a better choice? Also, when did you hear back? And did you get one of your top choices? Thanks!
  4. Does anyone know anything about admissions to the MDCM program for applicants pursuing a masters degree? Do I need to complete the masters degree PRIOR to entering the MDCM program if admitted? Are graduate courses grades taken into account in the GPA calculation? Can't seem to find any info on graduate applicants. Thanks!
  5. Salut à tous! J'ai quelques questions concernant les admissions à mcgill, les voici - Je suis présentement à l'UdeM et j'envisage de changer de programme (et d'université) pour aller à mcgill en dietetics. Savez vous si on peut rentrer directement en dietetics ou il faudrait faire des années préalables avant (puisque c'est une major)? - Aussi, est-ce qu'ils considèrent mes crédits et ma cote Z déjà faits à l'UdeM pour mon admission? - Finalement, savez-vous si c'est un programme très difficile à entrer (en comparaison avec nutrition à l'UdeM). J'ai vu une cote R minimale de 30.0, est-ce que c'est vraiment le cas? Merci pour vos réponses

  9. Hi, I would like to know the offers for Med-P and dent-P reached which position last year in the waiting list. Do you think it will go up to 15 this year for both programs? Thank you
  10. I was accepted to Life Sciences at McGill, but I am unsure whether or not I should attend the program. I really love Montreal as a city, but I've heard that McGill is extremely competitive and this may hurt my chances of getting a high GPA. If you are or have been a student in this program - how was your experience?
  11. Hello Premed 101, im new! I'm seeking some guidance from more knowledgeable people who may see my situation from a different perspective than me. To cut to the chase, I'm accepted to Life sci and Kinesiology at McMaster, and expecting acceptances from Western for Medical Sciences and McGill for Biological, Biomedical and Life sciences (95.5% overall). I've taken the time to develop good and persistent study habits in an effort to make the transition to university a little bit better. All of these programs seem to present different strengths to me, like how kin offers an anatomy & physiology course the first two years, and I love Mac's cadaver lab and LOVE studying the human body. With that, I also take a lot of time studying physics and calculus because I love developing better critical thinking. I'm just looking for the best program that I can take my physics, calculus, bio and chem in order to prepare for MCAT (ik theres no calc on MCAT), but want to specialize in something that mainly focuses on the human body in upper years (little to no interest in plant biology)? I know life sciences has a physiology specialization, but does that mainly look at human physiology? Either way I'm looking to work my tail off, but if anyone knows how these compare in difficulty, curved grades, etc for attaining a high GPA (not looking for spoon-fed GPA), a comparison would help. Thanks!!
  12. Hey guys, I am having trouble deciding between the two schools and I would really like so advice from upper years and current students. These are both great schools and I feel so happy to be able to choose from them, but honestly every day I am split. Here is what I have so far: McGill: + cheap tuition + 6 months of pre clinical + from what I heard - easier to get research - less competitive - a lot of patients in french, my french is decent but not the best - uphill battles during winter - I am not made for winter Toronto: + more research + English downtown (more familiar with the location) + better temp. in winter - more competition - all research is competitive to get - tuition and living cost difference (comes to about 70-80K difference when I did the math) I do want to match in UBC or UT. I am most likely not going for a competitive specialty, but I am still interested in EM. (Two+1 is most likely the best option for me) Thank for your help and insights!
  13. Hi, I was accepted to several undergraduate life science/medical science programs, but I am unsure about where I should go. If anyone has attended the following programs listed below, could you tell me about your experience? (e.g. quality of education, competition, bell curve, academic or extracurricular opportunites, atmosphere of the university/campus, etc.) For me, I feel like there are several pros/cons for each program/university, and I just don't know where I should go. McGill Life Sciences, Western Medical Sciences, uOttawa Biomedical Science, Queen's Science, Waterloo Biomedical Sciences, McMaster Life Science, McMaster Integrated Science. Thanks!

  16. Hi! The new calculation of the R-Score have put big doubts on the shoulders of cegepians who were always used to the ''34+ you're invited''. That's why I want to have a gross idea of the new cut-off with this thread and see how it has increased (if it has) and if a 34 is still competitive. R-Score : EC's : Invited/Not invited : Thank you!! And good luck on your MMIs^^

  18. Hi everyone! I am starting this thread because we should be hearing from McGill about interviews pretty soon. From previous threads, applicants have heard back around Jan 21st, and admissions said they should send them out before Jan. 26 so basically, we should hear from this by the end of the week. Please post below if you were accepted or rejected, IP or OOP, GPA and hours of volunteer/extra-curricular work Good luck to everyone!
  19. Surprised no one has started this but what were people's thoughts on the McGill Interview?

    Physics Prerequisite

    Hi all! I have a question about the science prerequisites for McGill. I will be applying this coming year (for Fall 2019 admission) and I'm trying to get all the prerequisites completed. I will, however, only be able to take the second physics course next winter term (i.e. winter 2019) and I was wondering if that means I'm ineligible to apply? I know by then they will have sent invites for the interview. Since I will be enrolled in the course at the time, does that mean I can't even apply? Or is there a way they give conditional offers? Thank you!!

  25. Salut! Longtime lurker, first time poster-- and I'm working on my written French, so I'll stick to English for clarity. After a lot of soul searching, I have realized that I cannot see myself as anything but a physician. However, I have a different situation that is leaving me confused at the application process for the QC schools. I went to a university in the States that technically doesn't calculate GPA. They give A, B, C or NC; with the option of taking a class P/F to explore your intellectual curiosity. With that, I'm unsure/ worried on how the French schools will convert my grades to a coteR, since I'm unsure if they will consider the grading system of my school (plus standard conversions that McGill will do are ROUGH; A= 4.0, B= 3.0, C=2.0... courses were curved hard so I have quite a few A cusps (>85%) that were curved down to Bs which kill the arbitrary GPA). I have a BA in Health and Human Biology ("3.4" thanks to a couple of C's in my first year ), with a MSc in Biotechnology ("4.0"). Since graduating 2 years ago, I've been working as a research assistant. 1- Am I totally screwed for the French schools? I know they only look at your GPA, but I want to work in QC and really believe that I need to do my studies in French to be 100% comfortable (and completely competent) to work with Francophone patients. Do they put any value in MSc degrees or weigh the grades the same as UG grades? 2- I'm missing a few prereqs (physics :/), will they be considered if taken as an independent student, or do they need to be apart of a bachelor's? I could also take a few other classes to try to up my UG GPA... 3- I need to take the MCAT for McGill since my UG is from outside of Canada. The French schools do not require the MCAT, but, if I have a score (which I will for McGill) would they consider it in the application? This would help me immensely... 4- McGill admins have suggested a second degree to help with the poor GPA conversion of my GPA-less school. Does UdeM have second degree programs? If so, would you apply as normal and then get exemptions afterwards for courses? Sorry for the long post, I've been unsuccessful at contacting the appropriate admins for info or finding relevant topics here, so I thought I would start a new thread for some advice. Thank you in advance
