  1. Hello! Est-ce que quelqu’un a déjà appliqué en médecine, pharmacie, physiothérapie, optométrie ou nutrition à l’UdeM après avoir obtenu un bac en droit de l’UdeM? Quelle était votre cote au BAC? Quelle était votre CRU? J’essaie d’avoir une idée de ce que pourrait être la CRU à l’udem avec 3.7/4.3 dans un bac en droit. Merci!

  3. Hi Everyone! A little while ago I made a post asking whether a 5th year would benefit me more than a Masters would in my pursuit of med school. I have been looking into what a fifth year would look like for me (Currently in health sciences at Western) and a counselor had told me that next year I would be registered at a "Special Student". I would technically graduate this year since I satisfied all of my degree's criteria but I could come back with this new status. I have never heard of this new status as a special student before and was wondering if med schools do in fact consider this in their GPA weighing. Can anyone confirm that this adds to my GPA? I don't want to spend a year and $7,000 only to find out that medical schools dont even consider that year. Thanks!

    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!!

    MCAT & Working Full Time

    Hi everyone! Last summer, I wrote the MCAT and scored 500, so I need to rewrite it for the schools I want to apply to. The thing is, last summer I was working full-time in a lab and really struggled to balance working and studying for the MCAT (cause I had signed up for one of those prep courses). This year, I was offered the same position in the lab and it would be full time. I really want to work for the experience and it strengthens my CV; however, I'm not really sure how to balance the working and studying? Any advice? This summer is my last chance to write the MCAT if I want to be able to apply during my 4th yr undergrad. Is it too risky to work and study knowing how bad I did on the first one. Is it worth giving up the research position to just study for the MCAT all 4 months? Any advice? Thanks!

  11. Hey there! I've bought the MSAR, and have looked through it a lot... however I am having some serious struggles with deciding where to apply to. My cGPA is a 3.65 with a strong upward trend (first year GPA was a 3.0), my MCAT score is a 509 (poor CARS score), I am rewriting my MCAT this summer. I have already completed 90% of the AMCAS application, but now I'm questioning if it's even worth to apply.. Literally every school I look into has different course requirements, different letter of reference requirements, and barely matriculate international students. (What even is the point of asking for a LOR from a science/ non-science professor... my classes all had 200+ students, no professor I've taken a SINGLE class with will be able to write anything worthwhile.... damn I wish Canadian Schools weren't so competitive) If anyone has any schools I should look into please let me know! Thanks peeps
  12. Interviews are coming up and one of the best ways to prepare for it according to many people is to practice within groups. We already have about 7 people in our group, however we are looking to gather more in order to mimic the MMI setting which would require a total of around 20 people. Anybody who is interested please leave a reply and I will include you into our group. for others who don't have an account you can just shoot me an email at: salam_hello@hotmail.com
  13. Hello there, Recently The Universe Review release ep.4 which is about Human Organs. i am posting here as i am not a fan of spamming forums, and truly respect the medical community, and this seemed the only appropriate thread. So, https://soundcloud.com/the-universe-review/humanorgans i think anybody who has any medical knowledge will find this at least a bit amusing, what The Top 5 Organs are according to 3 humans, with little body knowledge! it is a comedy PODCAST, completely FREE, no catch no bullshit! i'm sorry if this seems like spam mail, it is not i genuinly believe some of you will enjoy and find this interesting. Have a great day! Zoro. @UniverseReview5
  14. Hello Everyone, is there anyone that would like to practice for the McGill interview? if you have been invited and not sure how to practice.. reach thanks
  15. Hi everyone, This community has been a great resource for me, so I've been looking for a way to give back. Ever since D-day (aka May 10th for my fellow OMSAS warriors), I've been getting lots of PMs about interview skills. Partly because I got multiple offers, and partly because on my A/W/R posts I noted how well the interviews went. Rather than answering each PM separately I figured I'd make a post to point people towards so that others might benefit in the future. I'm not an interview god, I didn't know how to interview before I started, and I wasn't confident in my skills going in. However, the people I practiced with did compliment me quite a bit, and during my interviews several interviewer remarked on how well the conversation was going. I'm pretty sure that interviewers aren't supposed to give you any sort of feedback, but mine did. At the end of my Western interview, my interviewers spent about 10 minutes talking about how perfect I am for Western and vice versa. During my U of T interviews, one interviewer ended the conversation by saying "good job buddy", another by saying "you're an amazing story teller", and another with "this was the most engaging conversation I've had today". So while I'm not a natural interviewee, and I was quite nervous about the whole interview process, things went well. Bellow is why I think it went well for me. It may work for you, it may not. This is a case study with n=1. There's nothing magic about it, there are no secrets. There are, however, golden basics rules. Follow them, they work, and don't tell yourself that you can skip the hard work and figure our how to interview by "cramming" for a week. For MMIs: -Find a good medical ethics book (ie: Doing Right, and some basic CanMEDS resource) -Find a good person (ie: a med student or anyone who interviews well and can give feedback) -Read the book, practice with the person (realistic role play), take their feedback and edit your answer. I couldn't always find someone to practice with so sometimes I would pretend someone was in the room, time my self, and hope others didn't think I was hallucinating. -Wash, rinse repeat on a regular basis (I did 1-2 hours per day for a few weeks). Only time will make your comfortable, confident, and cunning at MMI. See attachment for the Big List of MMI Questions, do as many as possible. For traditional interviews: -List ALL of your interesting personal stories (including ABS) -create a cool narrative (even if its short) for each one -incorporate a CanMEDS characteristic into each one (don't force it, it should be obvious from the way you tell the story) -Look up the top health/social news stories of the last 2-3 years and develop an opinion/narrative about those -Practice with someone (realistic, timed, role play), or alone (but still outloud) if need be -Wash, rinse repeat on a regular basis (I did 1-2 hours per day for a few weeks). Only time will make your comfortable, confident, and cunning at traditional interviews. See attachment for the Big List of Traditional Interview questions, do as many as possible General: -Start doing realistic practice early, even if you're still new to interviews, and do it frequently. -In my opinion you should start prepping for MMIs before you prep for traditional interviews, because the MMI "mindset" (fair, balanced, thoughtful) will be invaluable for traditional interview questions. -If you can walk in confident and calm, you've won half the battle. Practice this every time your practice interviewing. -Learning to interview well is a life-changing experience. It teaches you how to connect and interact better, it teaches you how to summarize sell your personal brand in a short period of time, it teaches you how to see what's important in someone else's eyes, and as a PhD student who is about to defend, it taught me how to make my research meaningful to pretty much everyone. Best of luck to all the MD hopefuls. If you have questions, please post in this thread instead of PMing me. If you have a question, chances are someone else will too, so it saves me from having to answer it multiple times and helps more people out. Plus, someone else might have a better answer than me. PS: I don't know who the original compiler/poster of these "Big Lists" is, but if someone does please link them so they can be credited for their awesome work Big List of MMI Questions.pdf Big List of All Traditionl Interview Questions.pdf
  16. I did an NSERC last summer. I also wrote my MCAT two weeks after my lab work finished. I scored pretty badly because I did not have a lot of time to study (commuting over 3 hr, work). I wasn't very motivated to study because I came home stressed from being in a hostile lab environment; I felt like more of a burden in the lab and as if people didn't want me there as a student. The only reason I'm considering doing an NSERC while retaking the MCAT again is for the valuable research experience and possible connections with a prof. Is it really worth it? Should I just spend next summer solely on the MCAT? I just don't want to feel as if my summer is wasted if I don't do anything other than the MCAT...
  17. Hi Everyone! I'm currently in BioSci at University of Calgary. This is my first year. I am deciding to go to a university outside of Canada for medical. In Pakistan there is a university : Punjab Medical Colledge. For foreigners, the requirements are to complete high school and have done SAT 2 Subject tests for some courses. I want to go abroad, because the long tie limit to complete medschool here is a concern for me. So, I have decided on two options. 1) Apply to to Punjab Medical College since it only takes 5 years to complete medicine there. 2) If things don't work out there, come back to U of C and continue in the degree of Education instead next year. Since this is my first year, I'm still adjusting to the university's workload. I'm scared for my GPA, because I'm doing well in 2 courses, but I have around mid 70s in the other two courses. However, the results for Midterm 2 and finals are not included. If the med school abroad doesn't work out. I will most likely have to apply for a change of programs. I talked to some counsellors and they said that they will only look at the GPA for this fall term - but I'm scared that if it does not turn out well than I'll have to spend extra time to boost my GPA. However, if I withdraw for this term (I will not get my fees back) now, then they will consider my high school marks, which were above 90's. Is it a good idea to withdraw from this term and drop next semester and try for the med school in Pakistan. If things don't work out then I'll continue in Education next year. if med school does work out in Pakistan, then after completing it, I want to come back to Canada, I know that getting residency here is difficult but many people still try hard and get it. I asked some counsellors if withdrawing from a term would be bad for me. They said that normally, if students drop a term, it is normally a solid reason other than failing. SO she said, it will not impact me a lot. I'm really confused, so I would really appreciate your guys' suggestions. I would appreciate if you could reply fast, because deadline for withdrawing is coming close.

    Scholarship

    Hi! I got a GPA of 3.8 and I wanna join for medical school. I was looking into various scholarships to see if I would qualify for that. What are the scholarships that I can apply for? Does anyone know about the Aspire's Perricone scholarship. Will I qualify for that?

    Prerequisites

    Hi, just a quick question for everyone out there. I'm a McGill Economics student and am struggling to complete all my med school prerequisites on time before I graduate. I'm thinking instead of taking an English course at McGill (which is hard and difficult to score in), I would take a second one from Athabasca University online. I've already taken one so far, which I've found to be pretty straight forward. I was just wondering if application officers would give more value to a course taken at McGill rather than an English course taken online. Also, is anyone here an Economics following the same path? Managing well so far with the basic sciences but worried about organic and biochem. Looking forward to hearing back!
  24. Hi everyone, first time poster here. I have a few questions with AMCAS opening up soon. 1. The AMCAS app opens up May 5th. Does this mean I should tell my references to start sending in their letters after this day? OR, since the app can actually get submitted June 2nd, is this the date I should be aiming for? The reason I ask is that people seem to emphasize rolling admissions for American schools. 2. How does it work if I get accepted to both an American and Canadian school? I know American acceptances are way earlier on, so am I able to hold my spot down with a deposit, and essentially wait until May for Ontario acceptances? 3. What exactly are secondaries? If you get a secondary from a school, is that one step closer to getting an interview? Or does everyone who applies get a secondary? I've read the guide to applying to American schools before, but these are some of the questions that I couldn't find as definitive answers for. Thanks for the help.
