  1. Hi everyone!! What is the end date we should be putting down if the activity is still ongoing? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi guys I had a question for those who have been able to secure a two+ consecutive interviews at UOttawa. Assuming you were not successful with your interview the first time around, when you reapplied... 1) Did you guys change your application significantly or was it more or less the same 2) What do you think your chances are of securing an interview the following year? 3) Are there individuals who had an interview one year and was not able to get one the next year? Thank you guys very much for your help. If you guys know anyone who might not be on these forums but have been in a similar situation, feel free to share!! Thanks again
  3. Hello! I’m currently in the process of choosing a cegep, and I’m not quite sure how to rule out my options. I definitely would like to go into medicine, but don’t know which cegep is best for me to attend in order to do so. I know that Marianopolis gives out the best R-scores, but I’m worried that going there won’t make me achieve an above average R-score (when comparing it to the one of other students). Otherwise, if attending a public cegep, I don’t know if I will be able to achieve a high enough R-score there. Basically, I’m just confused about which cegep (public or private) I should attend in order to get the best possible R-score. Thank you
  4. Hello! I am a secondary 5 student at a private high school in Montreal. I am interested in going into medicine, and do not know which CEGEP to choose accordingly to that. I’m also not certain if the CEGEP I choose will, positively or negatively, affect my R score, or if going to a public CEGEP will prevent me from obtaining a high R-score. Would it be more of an advantage to attend a private one? (Not sure if this is relevant, but the language of the CEGEP doesn’t matter to me since I’m perfectly bilingual, but I have gone to school in French since elementary). I’m used to being in a competitive environment and absolutely don’t mind giving up my social life for school, so I do believe this matches more to the general ambiance certain private CEGEP’s. For public ones, I’m not too sure but I think Bois de Boulogne is a good school for getting into medicine, and for private obviously Marianopolis is the best regarding the R-score. I also don’t know if the proximity to my house should be an important factor when choosing. Thanks in advance
  5. Hello, I am looking to start an MMI prep group with 3-4 people. I am pretty flexible for how many times a week, when, etc), but would like to start meeting ASAP! Please message me if you are interested! I live in Saskatoon, so preference would be for individuals living in Saskatoon. Thank you!
  6. This is a project that myself (Christopher) and a classmate of mine (Ziad) started last September. We've had a lot of positive feedback from people who listen, so I wanted to share it with you here once more. It's a totally free resource and we have two episodes dedicated to the medical school interview; what you should be doing to prepare, what to expect on the day, etc. Please feel free to check us out on Facebook, or listen on any major platform (Apple Music, Spotify, Google Podcasts), and I'm happy to answer any specific questions too if you have them, just shoot me a message here. Here are links to the two episodes that are specific to interviewing (but be sure to check out all our other episodes too; we have episodes on CASPer, MCAT, extracirriculars, and more!): Pre-Interview Preparations: https://spoti.fi/2OpKGNj Day-of Interview: https://spoti.fi/399WdZ7 −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− Also, if you haven't checked out my premed website, then here is the link - it also has a BUNCH of interview prep materials on it too, again all free to use! https://ultimatepremedpackage.ca/interviewing/ -Christopher
  7. Im doing biomedical sciences at York and I didn't do great during my first two years. Got a GPA of 2.7 in first year. Second year, first semester, I wasn't able to focus, sad all the time for no reason, i was lost and I withdrew from organic chemistry (also withdrew a course in first year), I'm doing bad in calculus (planning on dropping the course prior to the deadline and still attending classes so i can do better next time), I dropped two other courses; one by early september and the other by November. I plan on changing my second semester of 2nd year, i even looked at how to study effectively and i intend on working hard and doing well. Also, I have done extracurriculars, did coop in high school at a dental office, volunteered at my own school for events, at the recreation centre and at a senior's home for a few years and still am from time to time. (Does my volunteer experience need to include more clinical/hospital?) Overall, I would like to attend medical school (can be international as well) and I'm wondering if its still possible or should i do a master's degree in my program (offered at Guelph) which is only one year and apply?
  8. 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?
  9. I graduated with a pre med degree majoring in biology and minoring chemistry. i want to study in the UK for a couple of reasons: relatively cheaper than the US and I need a lifestyle change. But I do want to finish my residency in the US so I can work there easily. any recommendations? I have had a long gap" year" that I managed to earn a masters degree while I work but it is time to go to medical school now. I'm confused as to why there are two medical programs where one is undergrad and one is a graduate program! what is the difference? Any recommendations to schools that accept international student in the UK? looking forward to your input:)))
  10. I wanted some peoples opinions on a situation that I am in. I've applied to medical school twice in Canada and have never gotten an interview. I have a cGPA of 3.90, an MCAT score of 515, I am a Canadian citizen and I have recently finished my Bachelor's at McGill University. I have recently been accepted to a British MBBS program at Newcastle University Medicine (Malaysia). I wanted to ask people's opinions on whether it would be more beneficial for me me to get started with medicine in Malaysia now and eventually go through equivalencies and work in Canada or should I find a job or apply for a masters in Canada and re-apply to medicine here? My life is here in Canada, but I also want to be a physician. Staying here will not guarantee that I get a place in a Canadian Medical school later on, but going to Malaysia doesn't guarantee I'll be able to come back either. Any advice? Thank you in advance!
  11. 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.

  13. I completed my pharmacy degree abroad (Egypt). My parents decided to leave Canada and move back to Egypt, and guess what? Had to leave with them. However, i decided to move back to Canada after completing pharmacy. Im currently a licensed Pharmacist in Ontario. I hold a bachelors degree and wish to apply to medical school. My average in pharmacy was around 86%. I still need to take my MCATs. I am also thinking about completing my PharmD, in hopes to strengthen my application. Im not sure where to start, and do i even have a chance? Will my international undergrad hold be back a little bit ? I am looking for an advice or any feedback Thanks for taking the time to read through this :)
  14. Hey guys, I'm thinking of applying to UOttawa med this year- I just wanted to know; what is the cut-off for the wGPA for anglophone applicants? On their site it says you can email and ask, but the lady won't be back till october 1st (how convenient). Did anyone manage to email this year? I don't wanna assume it's the same as previous years. Thanks!
  15. Good/regular/bad waitlisted by Western? Want to discuss chances/look for reassurance/rant/chat with other waitlisted applicants? This is the thread for you!
  16. For a university such as UofT which prefers its MD applicants to have research experience, do you think having publications can "make up" for a lower wGPA such as 3.88? I'm worried that I will not be invited for interviews due to my low marks but I have a lot of experience in research and in my opinion, good ECs. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hi! I am currently in the process of applying for an NSERC, and have also just recently interviewed for medical school. The interview went really well, but I am afraid that I won't be allow to undergo the NSERC if I am accepted to medical school since I would be registered for a professional program... Anyone have a similar experience, or can point me in the right direction based on who I should contact?
  18. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone wanted to start practicing for MMI either through skype or in person. We can create a small group. I know we havent heard back yet from most schools, but when we do, a month (in the case of McGill) isnt enough time to get ride of bad habits. Let me know!

  23. Hey, If anyone is looking to practice for the MMI in Edmonton Alberta then let me know and we can meet up and practice together. My email is jsg@ualberta.ca or just PM me. Hope to hear from you guys soon! Thanks
  24. Any elective advice for someone who is looking to match family med at McMaster (or somewhere in Southern Ontario)? I've heard it's good to be diverse, but maybe some electives are better than others? Thanks in advance!
  25. Hi everyone! I thought it would be interesting to have an updated discussion on how to be competitive for CaRMS and hopefully match to the specialties we're shooting for. The medical field is constantly changing and I think it would be beneficial to have more updated discussions about how to prepare for CaRMS. We all know that CaRMS can be a stressful time for many. I would like to hear more from others about how to prepare a strong application for CaRMS. This discussion can include anything from research, extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, hobbies), clerkship, electives, LOR, interviews, etc. I know that this topic can be quite subjective, but I would love to still hear from you all. Any information helps! To help categorize the information, it would be great to hear if you're a current med student, resident or other. Thanks for your help! What do you think makes for a competitive CaRMS application?
