  1. Did you get put on the waitlist today at 7:53? Is McMaster your only hope at becoming an MD? if so, then please join the party. Feel free to discuss anything and everything regarding the waitlist. Here is a link to last year's waitlist thread: http://forums.premed101.com/topic/99542-mcmaster-waitlist-party/ Have fun, keep us updated, and I hope to see you all in August!
  2. I'm a grade 12 student that is graduating this year. I want to go to medical school, but I want to go to an undergrad that prepares me the most for it (GPA, MCAT) and other requirements. My options I'm thinking of right now are: Waterloo Biomedical Science (no co-op) Pros: Good structure and has many courses that are perquisites for med schools Cons: I heard it was hard (courses like embryology) which I won't be able to get a high GPA Waterloo Honours Science (no co-op) Pros: Lots of flexibility in terms of electives (so you can boost GPA) Cons: Idk (no structure?) Waterloo Life Science (co-op) Pros: Idk Cons: Idk McMaster Life Science (co-op) Pros: McMaster is known for their sciences Cons: Enrollment says 1000 so large class sizes? Waterloo ranks higher than McMaster in terms of reputation (if that matters). Waterloo is known for co-op. Guelph Biomedical Science (don't think so) Pros: Idk Cons: Haven't heard much about it (like it doesn't have a big reputation) Would co-op matter? Like if I don't get into med school would it get me a higher chance to get jobs and would it be good for graduate school? Which school has the better co-op? In terms of GPA, which program is the best? In terms of preparing me for the MCAT, which program is the best? Which school is best in terms of marks, ECs, community? I'm thinking of McMaster Life Science because they have a medical school and I've heard McMaster is a good school for science (not sure tho). In general, which program would give me the highest chance of getting into med school? Can you provide me a more in-depth explanation of why this program is good (if you took it)? Are there any other programs I should consider (other than McMaster Health Science and Western Medical Science which I did not get into)? Correct me if I'm wrong with any of the programs (I really don't know much about them).

  6. Hello! I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight on applying to McMaster and Queens... I am applying to both through the aboriginal stream. cGPA: 3.35 wGPA: 3.86 EC: vet clinic, humane society, large animal vet, worked with the head pediatrician at my hometown hospital, environmentalist for a mining company in Canada and another for in the States, volunteered at a therapeutic riding center, research experience I have yet to write my MCAT (I plan to this August!)....so far I am having a very hard time with the chemistry/physics and bio/biochem sections. I am acing the CARS however - it is consistently my best score (131-132 on all the practice tests). Do you think I have a good chance of getting in? I have read that McMaster puts less emphasis on grades, however they take into consideration your cGPA, and as you can see above, mine isn't the most competitive! While my wGPA is much better, I am still not sure as to whether I will be considered competitive, especially if I cannot get higher scores on the chem/phys and bio/biochem sections on the MCAT. Any advice/insight would be much appreciated:)
  7. Hey guys! I recently got into both mac health sci and western med sci with scholars electives. Obviously my end goal is med school and I know most people say mac is the safer bet but I just wanted to see if anyone had any more advice for choosing between the two programs. I like both the programs and I'm mostly considering western because I liked the campus, the atmosphere, and the guaranteed research opportunity. However mac health sci I've heard also has an amazing and supportive community. Idk I think I'm leaning towards mac, but ya lemme know your opinions!!
  8. Hi all, I received my offer of acceptance at Western MedSci back in December and didn’t really consider Mac ArtSci + Health Sci considering their competitive nature. Though I got rejected from Health Sci, I recently got accepted at ArtSci. I was wondering if there was anybody currently in the ArtSci program who could speak on their experience or anybody currently in medical school that have graduated from ArtSci. Would ArtSci be a good program as a pre-med? I was planning on combining it with Biochem but I am still slightly worried. MedSci is a lot more specialized (overwhelmingly so) and I’m worried about maintaining a high GPA in a program that appears to want students to fail. Can anyone speak on this? So confused about what to do! Any guidance would be greatly, GREATLY appreciated! Thank you so much !

    Hello, I'm a student atyorku planning to transfer to macU, I know that yorku uses a 9 point while mac uses a 12 point, if I transfer tomac does that mean that my GPA will be in mcmaster standards now? (forexample if I got an A in one course will it go as a 3.9 as opposed to 3.8 at york?) Thank you
  11. Can anyone provide insight on choosing between Calgary and McMaster for med school? In terms of program, matching for residency after, heaviness of schedule, etc?  Any insights would be hugely appreciated! My friends and family are all closer to Mac but I think Calgary is a way more beautiful place to live.

  13. This question is for all current physio students- I have applied to quite a few physio programs this year and wanted to know how possible it is to qualify for a scholarship set aside for PT students? I have gone through a couple of websites and the number of scholarships available is pretty good when looking at the class-size. But I feel like current students would have a better idea of what it actually looks like. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks
  14. Hi, I have applied to the MSc global health program at McMaster for 2019-20. I am wondering if anyone has heard back yet or know when will that be? Thanks!
  15. I’m worried that I won’t get into university, I want to got to Queen’s science program and to get in the average is 82+ and right now with my first semester marks my average is an 86, I had to redo advanced functions and I had a 57 in that course and ended up with a 90 after, I got an 87 in bio, and 80 in English. Second semester I have calculus, chemistry, kinesiology. I’m hoping to get 80-83 in calc 93 in chem and 96-97 in kinesiology. Has anyone gotten into Queen’s science program yet? And if so what was your average? Can I get in? I’m really worried that I won’t!! Thank you!
  16. Hi, Congrats to everyone who received an invite to take part in the Kira online interview today! Can anyone recommend any programs/resources that I can use to prepare for this interview? Thanks so much!
  17. Hi everyone! Congrats on getting a spot for the interview! Just wanted to create a fourm to share sample questions with each other and practice If you've done the Kira interview already, could you also share how was the experience, did you feel ready enough from the practice questions, etc? I'm also curious, are they actual job-like interview interview questions or are they MMI/scenario-based questions? Thanks and good luck!
  18. Hey Im in Gr 12 and I have a question about the amount of McMaster Life Sci Kids that make it to Med School?
  19. I have just finished my 1st term in my 2nd year of undergrad at Mcmaster doing a three-level B.Sc. program because my GPA was below a 5.0 after first year and I was unable to specialize for 2nd year. During 1st year I was not focused in school and well got caught up in the social scene in uni... and 2nd year was more procrastination and overestimating my ability by taking some courses (for interest...instead of boosting my gpa....) 1st year 1st term GPA: 2.2 / 12 1st year 2nd term GPA: 5.8 / 12 2nd year 1st term GPA: 6.2/ 12 which I think my gpa is at a 4.73/ 12 (horrible gpa I know...) anyways I want to get into med school and I know there is pretty much no chance for me to get my gpa up to a competitive level.... I would appreciate it if I could get some advice for possible next steps if I really want to get into medical school... I also have slight interest in maybe doing research but I don't know how that would be possible either. Thanks in advance!

    Does Undergraduate school matter?

    Hi there, new to the forum. I'm currently in grade 12 and starting to apply to university. My longterm goal would be to get into University of Toronto or McMaster medical school. So the question is: Does the undergraduate school you do to matter in terms of Medical school acceptance? I know this topic has been discussed before but wanted to know if anything has changed. I currently live in Toronto and want to get away for undergrad and explore somewhere new like Ottawa or Northern Ontario (don't ask me why lol). Would going to schools like Uottawa or Northern Ontario which are ranked 10th or less in Canada hinder my chances in the longrun? I've been browsing through the medical schools websites and the only thing that scares me a little is that very few people from smaller universities get accepted. Lets say I get a 3.8 GPA at UOttawa, would that be "equal" to a 3.8 at McMaster/Western in the eyes of the med school? (given program (biomed), extracirriculars and LORs are the same) Would appreciate any advice on this matter, Thanks!
  22. Looking at the current year stats, almost half of the University of Toronto Medical school's 2018 students are from McMaster. Is there a reason for this? Also, for students who got accepted, what did you do for undergrad; life or health science? Cheers, Victor

  24. Guys, please take a minute to answer this poll. And yes, I know this has probably been asked many times, but there were so many different opinions that I thought I'd start a new topic for this and see how it goes.
  25. Since US medical school admission takes grade inflation into account, is it right to say Western Med Sci (for which 80% = 4.0 on the American GPA scale) would be a better option than Mac Health Sci if you plan to go to a US medical school?
