  1. Hello all, Im an IMG interested in General Surgery and was wondering what the different pros and cons of each program are, and what respective residents think about their programs
  2. Bonjour, Je suis en biochimie a McGill et je voulais savoir un 3.7/4 donne quoi comme CRU et un 4/4 donne quoi comme CRU? Merciiii
  3. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  4. Hi guys! Much gratitude in advance for the replies/advice/insight! I'm an M3 in Montreal, Med-P background, and only have eyes from Family Medicine. I just wonder too often whether, at this point, I'm strong enough of an applicant? I have no research experience, but do have years worth of community involvement (mostly from before Med-P, about 1 years worth during) and my own health literacy initiative. Apart from this, so far, my clerkship evaluations are good. I plan on pursuing electives that could help me refine skills that would make me a better Fam Doc. I am "well-rounded" with respect to my extracurriculars. However, that is about it. What can I do to make myself a stronger candidate? To match here in Montreal would be a dream, but I certainly will be applying broadly. To summarize, here are some questions I would hugely appreciate having answers too. 1) What makes a strong family medicine applicant? 2) Is research worth pursuing during M3/M4 given I have no previous experience? 3) Are some strong reference letters more valuable than others (i.e surgery vs psych vs fam med) 4) What do you recommend as far as electives for a Fam Med applicant? Thank you so much! Please excuse my anxious med-p energy (it's chronic).
  5. Hello everyone. I am a McGill medical student interested in learning French. I have absolutely zero knowledge of the French language. I am looking for advice from some of the more senior members of the forum who were in a similar situation. My aim is to reach a level where I can have a functional conversation with a patient in French (i.e be able to express myself as well as understand what the patient is telling me). I am not interested in learning how to read or write at the moment. What is the best and most efficient way to reach that level? I heard about the Medical French Workshops organized by McGill. I have also heard about online programs such as Duolingo and Rosetta Stone. What is the best and most efficient way to go about this? Also, how long would it take me to be able to have a functional conversation with a patient in French? Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated, especially from people who were in a similar situation and who have first-hand experience in learning French from scratch. Thanks.
  6. Hey, So I created this thread for med-ps to discuss since I found that there weren't a lot of discussions for our applicants' pool. What do you guys think of the Med-P waitlist @mtl and @outaouais this year? At which rank do u think the waitlist might stop? Is there anyone willing to leave the waitlist? Are you guys waiting for responses from other universities while being accepted at McGill or while being on McGill's waitlist? Admitted med-ps, former med-ps and candidates on the waitlist are more than welcome to share their thoughts. Feel free to do so!
  7. Hi everyone, Can anyone else who applied to either one of these two programs confirm whether or not they are still able to login into UApply and access either one of their applications and upload documents? I was under the impression that applications would be locked after the February 10th deadline, but for whatever reason I still seem able to access and upload documents to my applications? Thanks!
  8. 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?
  9. this is regarding the OT QY: Some questions for a future applicant: Is there an interview process for OT QY? I saw some old comments saying there was an MMI style interview For the video portion of the application: what did you guys include in your video? Trying to gauge what is important Thanks!
  10. Hello premed101 users! I am a 21 year old soon-to-be 3rd year (DEC) nursing student currently studying in Montreal. For the last year or so, I have been thinking about restructuring my academic path in a way that would ultimately allow me to apply to medical school. After many hours of reflection, I decided it would be best to finish my nursing DEC so that i could then apply in Health Sciences (Fall 2020). This means that i would be completing my med school prerequisites over another two years, all the while working part time as a nurse. I currently have a 33.0 global R-score. I've won two scholarships and have been on the Dean's list since my admission. I believe i have a better shot at staying in CEGEP for two more years, acing my science courses, hopefully increase my R-score from 33.0 to at least 35.0, and then apply to med school. I feel like the academic competition in CEGEP is somewhat more manageable than the fierce competition of university, which would make it easier for me to stand out. In addition, I've seen that the med faculties offer more spaces for college students than university students. All that being said, I just wish to have some objective input on the matter. Many of us here come from many different backgrounds which is why i want to have your advice. Is my plan feasible? Should i be better off applying to university after my nursing DEC? Why or why not? Ps: je suis parfaitement bilingue donc soyez bien à l'aise de répondre en français! Thank you so much in advance!
  11. Hey Guys I hope that I don’t create a panic with this post. As we get closer to the magical Monday, please use this thread to report your outcomes. I removed EC and cGPA as at this point it is only prereq GPA that plays a role: TIME STAMP:  Result: pre-reqGPA: MCAT: Feeling About MMI (please be mindful of NDA): Year: IP/OOP/International: comments: Good Luck to all my comrades. Every step of this journey has been bitter sweet. There has been tears of joy and disappointment but very soon we shall know of our destiny. No matter the outcomes, let us we are much grander than this decision. “Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.” May the odds be ever in your favor! Good Luck!!!!
  12. Bonjour ! Je suis nouvelle sur ce forum alors je ne sais pas si quelqu'un a déjà posé cette question quelque part mais bon, j'ai vraiment besoin d'aide ! Alors voilà ! Je suis finissante en biochimie (bac) et j'ai appliqué en médecine à McGill et à l'UdeM. En fait je suis déjà admise au MD de McGill (ils font leur offres en mars), et avec les offres de l'UdeM qui sortiront demain, je ne sais pas trop quoi faire si je suis acceptée. Quelqu'un a déjà été dans une situation similaire ? Est-ce que quelqu'un aurait des conseils à me faire ?
  13. Bonjour, Je viens de recevoir ma cote R et j'ai finis avec 34,827. Pour rentrer en médecine, McGill en 2018 a pris 34,905 et UdeM 34,954. Laval et Sherbrooke sont dans les alentour de 34,9 également. Je voudrais savoir si j'ai encore des chances de rentrer malgré mon 0.1 de différence. Je m'inquiète de ne pas être convoqué à un entrevue. Merci beaucoup!

  16. Bonjour! Je suis un collégien en dernière session qui a appliqué à McGill en pre-med (cote R>35) et j'ai quelques questions: Je me demandais combien de références minimum il est nécessaire de mettre dans le VERL qu'accompagne le CV. Dans le document d'information ils disent 4-5, mais vu que les CVs des cégépiens sont relativement plus courts que ceux qui détiennent un bac en raison des publications de recherches et des prix, je me demandais si il est possible d'en mettre moins. J'en ai plus que 5, mais cela revient à ma 2e question: y a-t-il des gens qui savent si ils contactent vraiment toutes les personnes? J'ai quelques bonnes références, mais les autres sont relativement peu bonnes et pourraient ne pas les intéresser. Merci!
  17. Hello everyone, I just had a question about the medical schools in Quebec. I would like to know the differences* between the medical programs, especially the ones offered at UdeM and McGill. *Mostly about the admissions, the classrooms, the way of teaching and any other aspect in general... Thank you very much.

  19. Hi everyone, Based on older posts, it looks like McGill previously included an interview as part of their admissions process for both its OT or PT programs. However, I can't seem to find anything to suggest that they require an interview this year. Can anyone confirm whether or not interviews are required this year for either program? Thanks and good luck!
  20. I am Canadian. What are my chances for top american med schools? Which american schools would you recommend applying to? What would you recommend improving in my application between now and September? I have a 4.0 cGPA, 521 MCAT (127 CARS), many meaningful extracurriculars (although I am worried because I do not have any meaningful research or shadowing). A few of my major ECAs include: -Student trustee of a major Canadian research university -Member of student government -Youngest board member of a national education advocacy organization - National chair of prestigious political training program (involved for 7 years) -250 hours EMT overseas -Teach sports to children with disabilities for many years -Executive of large cultural club on campus -a ton of intramural high school, sports, high school class president... (good stuff in high school) Thanks!!!
  21. Hey! I’m currently a second semester science student at Marianopolis who is unsure of what to do to get into Med-p. I knew that I love science but I didn’t know if a career in med or engineering would fit me so I decided to go for pure and applied because I can take organic chem and bio 2. I took bio 1 and honesty that was the best class ever and now I’m really interested in med. I have an r score in the high 35 so idk if that’s good enough since last year the average was 37!
  22. www.MedsHousing.com Listing #24958 Log onto MedsHousing.com and contact listing as posted: "I’m a med student at McGill and live in a 2-bedroom condo that I love, in the amazing neighbourhood of St-Henri. I’m a 5-min bike ride (15-min walk) from the Glen / Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) / Children’s / Shriner’s. And a 5-min walk from St-Henri metro: great for McGill hospitals including the Jewish and Montreal General Hospitals (MGH, JGH) and St-Mary’s, as well as the CHUM (UdeM) downtown. The building is very close to the the Lachine canal (right behind the large building on the right in the photo, which is the view from your room), to tennis courts and a beautiful park with fountains, grocery stores, and Atwater market. I usually use the second bedroom as a guest room, but I thought it’d be nice to rent it out to a med student or resident from elsewhere from time to time. The room has a Queen bed, a large closet with a dresser inside it (I’ll empty all of this for you) and a small desk – and you can use another desk in the living room too (not in the photo). There’s a washer & dryer in the unit, Internet is unlimited, there’s a terrace on the roof, and a BBQ on my balcony. Looking for a relatively quiet, very clean, gay-friendly non-smoker. Let me know if you have questions, what dates you’re looking for, and a bit about yourself. $930/month includes utilities, renter’s insurance, indoor parking, beddings & towels." Check out other listings on www.Medshousing.com or post your own place!
  23. Hi all, I spoke to the admissions and the person I spoke with seemed a bit unsure, so I don't even know if it's a big deal: When filling out the academic workbook, is the local GPA according to your university's GPA system? Reason I ask, my university uses a 9 point system. Or do I covert this to a 4.3 scale that McGill provides in the guide? Thanks!
  24. I love you all in advance for your honest feedback, albeit it be as harsh as Canada’s winters or as sweet as the peach drink from Timmies. Enough with the bad analogies, here’s the summary: 24 years old. Currently in 2nd gap year Ontarian post grad, working to reduce that $30k debt. Fluent, not native, in French. Native in Russian, basic Italian GPA: 4.0 after McGills conversion. 3.95 otherwise. ECs: -honours thesis in a molec/biochem lab (results credited during supervisor’s conference presentation; he also happens to be a past department head, univ prof emeritus and the coordinator for Gairdner at York- does any of that matter??); lead to abstract publication and oral presentation (on my behalf) at a conference. -~100 hours as an exec on mental health club (organized a couple of big projects and conferences) - ~100 hours as a research assistant in clinical research (VOLUNTEER) -~200 hours hospice doing home visits for the same patient in palliative care -part time job at a small business/local salon I’ve had since 2013 and haven’t quit yet because I’ve built a very close relationship w the owner and it’s a minute from my house. I’m also currently an assistant manager there -another recent job I’ve taken up at a medical assistant, so far at 75 hours and counting -over 400 hours shadowing family doctor and surgeries at Sunnybrook -started my own catering company I run part/full time dep. on demand. I carve literal flowers out of any fruit you want, it’s been my artistic channel for over a year. -full time caretaker of my ill grandma whom I live with (not sure if worth mentioning that but that has been a big reason it’s been difficult to find a full-time ‘real job’) -every month, I try to get some ppl from my neighbourhood together to pick up garbage around the mailboxes and to offer to put up “slow down, kids at play” signs on ppls front lawns bc it’s a residential area yet ppl speed 70+. I’ve been doing this for over 3 years and I don’t know if it’s worth mentioning since most of the time I just end up going alone -some hospital and clinic volunteering when I was 18 -participated in sanofi aventis biotech challenge when I was 17 - did research in a cancer lab for an entire school year; poster presentation and a paper at the end -not many awards except for scholarship, deans list and first class w distinction grad -hobbies include: regularly attending the francophone community meetings (cafe conversation style) and organizing some myself; an avid gym goer (swimmer) -let’s talk science community outreach but only 20 hours under my wing - I do it from time to time -written mcat twice if that matters -during my second gap year, I went back to take a full year prereq physics course which ran 4 days a week 11-12 which also limited some of the full-time job searching I really want to attend McGill. Not only am I in love with the city and would love to move there in a heartbeat, but going there for medical school would mean my family isn’t far from me (were first gen. immigrants and it’s been tough getting everyone together finally and ideally I don’t want to leave by moving too, too far). Please provide me with any feedback, that will preferably not crush my fragile heart. Thank you.
