  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. Hi everyone! I know this is probably the millionth thread about this thread, but I am really struggling to decide. I have been accepted to McGill and UofT dentistry and have interviewed at 5 Ontario med schools (will hopefully get at least one). Also accepted to Ivy League USMD. I am really struggling to decide what to do. I have shadowed both professions and I can truly see myself doing either profession. Lifestyle is something I value greatly. I was wondering if anyone had any additional insight that can help me out!
  4. 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?
  5. 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!

  10. 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
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. Why do you think the R Score is much lower at ULaval for medicine compared to Sherbrooke and Montreal?
  14. Hi premed and predent, First of all, I'd like to congratulate you. If you're seeing this post, that means you're doing your best in taking steps to achieve your goal. Yes, it is extremely useful to have someone who already gone through the process to help you. This is why I'm here: I would like to help you with your application, CV, letter of intent, interview (traditional or MMI), and CASPer. My background: I'm a medical student in Quebec. I was also a dental student for 5 years (I'm actually a dentist now, but I'm not practicing dentistry because of medical school). I have a lot of experience in MMI, CV and letter of intent because of my previous application experience. I was also in the admission committee when I was a 3rd-year student. I have read many premeds' letters, CV, and practice MMI with them. I'm bilingual (English and French). I've already helped a few premed students, and I always have a lot of pleasure doing this service. I usually do Skype with my students, however I'm open to other alternatives. I only charge 45$ (Canadian) per hour, as I said I do this more because I enjoy doing it. (If I want money, I'd be working as a dentist now). PM me here, or send me an email: colegate17@gmail.com Best luck for your future endeavours. Dr. Y, DMD, MD Candidate
  15. Hi pre-med and pre-dental students, First of all, I'd like to congratulate you. If you're seeing this post, that means you're doing your best in taking steps to achieve your goal. Yes, it is extremely useful to have someone who already gone through the process to help you. This is why I'm here: I would like to help you with your application, CV, letter of intent, interview (traditional or MMI), and CASPer. My background: I'm a medical student in Quebec. I was also a dental student for the past 5 years. I'm actually a dentist now, but I'm not practicing dentistry because I'm attending a medical school. I have a lot of experience in MMI, CV and letter of intent because of my previous application experience. I was also in the admission committee when I was a 3rd-year student. I have read many premeds' letters, CV, and practice MMI with them. For the interviews (MMI and traditional), I usually spend the first 20-30 min giving my students some tips/tricks that they need to know (including different type of stations + systematic approach to deal with differents types of scenarios). And then we practice with mock interviews. At the end of each scenario, I give them my evaluation (there are specific criteria) and feedback/suggestions. I'm bilingual (English and French).

  16. Hello everyone! I am re-applying into Pharmacy this year here at the University of Saskatchewan. I don't have the strongest GPA so I'm counting on doing exceptional on the Test of Critical Skills/Personal Profile. If anyone has any tips or resources on how to prepare for the TOCS/PP, please do share! We can also use this to discuss anything related to the College of Pharmacy at the University of Saskatchewan.
  17. Hi all, Couple years back I was trying to get into medical school. I also had a hobby of building websites in my spare time, so even before I found out if I got in, I built a website/blog with the intention of blogging about 1) getting into medical 2) the experience 3) any experiences in the medical profession beyond that ie residency, fellowship, etc etc. Needless to say I have had a bit of a career switch, and wont be entering medical school any time soon. Therefore, I don't have the experience, time, or credibility to write content for the site. I was wondering if one or many of you would be interested in contributing content to the site. It would mainly just be for entertainment/ catharsis/ potentially helping other internet perusers out. I have attached a screenshot of the home page. It is toy story themed :)site still needs lots of work but if I know I have content then I can update it. Let me know, Reed
  18. A thread dedicated to medical school and hospital facilities in Canada and around the world. Post anything on the topic of medical facilities - your dissatisfaction, plans to reconstruct/renovate existing buildings , renderings, pictures, etc. I'll start with the Roy and Diana Vagelos Center Education Center at Columbia University (New York City) - a state-of-the-art facility Canadian meds can only yearn for. It was built last year, and designed by: Architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro Gawd... imagine having the privilege to study here. I would make this my permanent home.

    Med-P or Bachelor's degree

    Hi, I have some quick questions : Can you practice medicine after getting your MDCM degree ? What is the equivalent of the Med-P program at McGill in other universities? I was also wondering if it was better for example to do a Bachelor's degree in chemistry at McGill then transfer to UofT (or any other university) for med school, instead of doing Med-P at McGill and residency in another school. Also do you have to take.the MCAT at one point in the Med-P program? It's just that I don't understand the use of not doing it ; if you transfer to any other university, they will want the MCAT score so.. I don't know if the Med-P program prepares you well for the MCAT. Sorry if this isn't making sense. I can't seem to grasp the concept of a Med-P program. It's preparatory for what ? What can you do with a MDCM degree? Is med P med school or undergraduate? Please lighten me up, thank you. P.-S.: I have read everything on the internet about the program and I still don't understand it.. sigh.

    PreMed or no Premed

    Hi there, I am a grade 11 honours/AP student who has a passion for sciences and medicine. Recently I've been browsing these forms and I've seen that this site is generally a good place to gain advice from former students about University and post graduate endeavours, so I thought, 'hey, why not give it a try'. I am here to ask if anyone knows of any successful and fulfilling (financial and personally fulfilling) fields to go into after an undergraduate program such as Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences and/or Biochemistry. I am also open to taking/planning on attending graduate school after undergrad if needed. I, of course, know that I can go to medical school and become a doctor (which in and of itself features a wide variety of specialities). However, I want to keep my options open. I really enjoy biology, chemistry and mathematics. I also love researching and working hands on in labs to find solutions to problems (so I looked into working in a hospital laboratory but the income wasn't too appealing). I just feel like the only medical career that will allow someone to be fulfilled (and financially successful), is a doctor [re-reading that statement I realize that it makes me seem very closed minded, which is why I need help]. Hopefully someone on here can shed some light on careers that are often over looked when choosing a career in Science and Medicine. Thank you for your help.
  21. Hey guys - do you have any recommendations for scholarship/bursary websites that an incoming medical student can apply to? Thanks

    My Friend Needs Help...

    Hi everyone, Before I start, I would just like to say that I’m posting this question on behalf of my best friend. I told him to join this forum and ask it himself but he was too scared and embarrassed to do it so I’m doing it on his behalf and for his own sake. BEWARE: THIS IS A LONG POST! Sorry in advance, I feel the need to be specific with the details. So, my best friend recently told me that he would like to pursue medicine as a profession and I couldn’t be happier and proud of him. As a current premed myself, it’s nice to have someone to have along on this journey to medicine. He’s a very bright person, extremely hardworking and possibly the most optimistic person that I could have ever met. I really look up to him, respect him and I also consider him to be my friendly rival. We both went to the same high school and he was very active in school and in our community. He was also a straight A student in high school, I’m not sure how relevant that is but I thought that it’s something that I should share. However, he recently dropped a big bomb of news to me. He told me that he had the worst two years of his life as soon as college started. You see, we both just finished our 2nd year this year so we are still fairly new to college. But, he told me that he had been assessed by the counsellor at our school and the assessment proved that he was suffering from mild depression and anxiety for the past two years. This mild depression and anxiety has affected his academic performances during the first two years of college. I felt like such a terrible friend for not noticing his signs and symptoms and that he was suffering from depression and anxiety. He hid it from me so well, too well if you ask me! As I’ve mentioned before, he is a very optimistic person and he showed no sign of change when we were hanging out. He always had a great big smile and we would always work hard and study together. But, it was all a façade, he secluded himself from everyone around him didn’t tell a single soul what he was going through, not even his parents. I felt very hurt that he didn’t tell me, me of all people, his best friend who would do everything to help him out! But I also do understand that he didn’t want me to worry for him and he didn’t want other people to worry for him. Fast forward, I asked him for the truth on what he’s now doing about his depression and anxiety and he told me everything. According to him, he is now getting treatment and he regularly meets up with a counsellor to talk and further help improve his situation. He’s also a part of a group that helps deal with anxiety and he told me that it has been helping him greatly. I genuinely feel like he is now on the right tract of improvment. He’s still very persistent in wanting to go into medicine. Throughout the years that I’ve been friends with him, I’ve never seen him that dedicated on a single goal. Sure, he’s a hardworking student but this type of goal orientation feels very different. Okay, so here are his stats for the first two years of college: cGPA: 1.70 According to him, his academic performances has been very rough. He was only getting Cs, C+s, Bs and B+s from his classes. In addition, he failed 5 of his courses and he planned to retake all of them. MCAT: Hasn’t taken it yet so N/A. ECs: Volunteer in a hospital, holds a leadership position in a science club and volunteer in a lab I know that his stats are extremely low and you [the reader] may think that my best friend is crazy for even thinking about pursuing medicine with these stats but he’s really determined to reach his goal. He’s currently taking summer classes to retake his failed courses and he has been doing amazing in all of them. He just took his midterm and he received an A+ after studying really hard for it. As his best friend, I really want to help him out to the best of my ability but at the same time, I need a realistic opinion from all of you. Please try to avoid any hurtful comments about my friend since he would also be reading this thread. I really need everyone’s opinion and input on what his chances are! Lastly, I’m not sure how relevant this is but he told me that he would like to mainly focus on applying at the University of Manitoba school. We’re both from Manitoba so technically he would be an In Province applicant and I know that they do Adjusted GPA but I’m not really sure how far that can help him. Should he stay for a 5th year? Just give up on medicine? I’m really lost on what I should tell him! Thank you all in advance!
  23. I was just wondering if anyone got their results for mcgill medicine for premed?
  24. Hi, I am about to finish my final year in cegep and am preparing to enter the exercise science program at Concordia. I was hoping to apply at McGill for either dent or med after, however, I was wondering if I had to complete their University Requirements (listed here https://www.mcgill.c...oncepts2017.pdf) courses equivalent at Concordia to be able to apply? Also, I was wondering if transferring to McGill Bsc.kinesiology was a decent option for me as well? Finally, a big question, after completing my undergrad, will the MD or DMD programs take in count of my cegep grades or only look at gpa? Thanks!
  25. Hello premed101, I am a student from McMaster University who has yet to declare a major. I have narrowed it down to two subjects, Physiology and Biochemistry, and of course, as with many other students, the goal is medicine. I love anatomy and all the physiological processes, but biochemistry is also high up there in my favourite subjects. I did well in my chemistry and biology courses in 1st year. I know both prepare you good for medical school, but would anyone like to offer any advice as to which major I should study? Thank you for your time.
