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 !
Stats 2244 - Just how hard is it? I've heard that this course is very difficult for the fact that lecture does not completely capture what students are expected to know in order to be successful on exams. After researching online and hearing from students who took it in the most recent school year, it seems that Prof Waugh expects students to do outside reading and that she assigns way too many textbook readings that do not overlap with material from lecture - yet students are still required to know all of it. Not to mention her apparent tricky wording on exams and low 60 exam averages. I have the option to switch this course for Math 1229 by taking Stats next summer before 3rd year. This would decrease my workload significantly this upcoming semester and allow myself to focus more on orgo/biochem/micro/phys. However, this 6 week course would interfere with my MCAT studying. Would studying for Stats in the summer while also MCAT studying be a bad idea? And does anyone have tips for the course besides doing outside readings, staying up to date on homework, and doing practice exams. I really don't want to take a hit to my GPA for one course, but I also want to dedicate time next summer to research and the MCAT. Thanks in advance
