  1. Hi everyone, I'm planning to apply to bunch of school this year, many of which require casper. For Dalhousie, the latest date you could right the test is Aug 28 but for the others one the last date is much later in the year. I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to right the test twice, one for dalhousie and another for others. I know on their website it says limit of 1 test per year but website itself allows you to book a later date so I'm not sure if you actually cannot write it twice.
  2. Hi Everyone, 2 courses I took during the fall semester of my 1st year were pass/fail courses. O.K, so that year won't count for Ottawa's wGPA calculation So my questions are: would the final 3 years of my study be valid for the calculation? And if this does occur, what will happen to the first year marks — would they just disappear?
  3. Hi everyone, I applied to uOttawa this year and thankfully got an interview. However, IF I get accepted , I will need to have completed a pre-req from Athabasca University before June 30th to send my transcript to OMSAS. I was planning on doing my midterm and final exams in the upcoming months, but since all universities in my province have closed due to COVID-19 I will not be able to be invigilated (aka take my exams). Depending on how Athabasca deals witht the situation, I am unsure if I will be able to finish my pre-req before the OMSAS deadline. I know that everything is extremely uncertain at the moment, but does anyone have any idea of how pre-reqs will be handled by med schools in the event that unforeseeable circumstances like this one make it impossible for us to finish them before the deadline or, even worse, entering med school in the fall? Hope everyone is safe!

  6. I'm interested in applying to Ottawa for medical school. I am currently in my 4th year of undergrad. My 1st and 2nd year marks were not great so I am planning on doing a 5th year so that I can use 3rd, 4th, and 5th year in the wGPA calculation. In my 3rd year, I took 5 courses/semester. However, 1 course in first semester was online, and 2 were online in 2nd semester. The school I go to doesn't indicate if a course is taken online on the transcript. I recently emailed admissions (Diane Parent) and she said that when verifying transcripts "there are methods to find out if a course is taken in class or online". Does anyone know how this is possible? I previously heard that if your school doesn't indicate it on your transcript then it counts as an in person course Additionally, if would a course I took in the summer be able to make up for the 2 online courses I took in second semester? I know that they count missing credits if you have 4 courses but not sure if it would be able to replace an online course..

  8. Hey! Did anyone apply through the CNFS or applied in previous years and got in?
  9. 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?
  10. Hey folks, Any ideas on if any Canadian schools reject or frown upon taking an online course during undergrad? It happens to be a biochemistry course, which I know is a prereq for Ottawa. WIll this make any difference? Also, do these things matter for US schools, at least ones that accept Canadians?
  11. Hi, I am a high school student who wants to go to med school (yes, I know how corny this sounds), and I LIKE BOTH OF THESE COURSES EQUALLY and can't choose between them. So, I would like to know which course is easier to get a high GPA in, while also having time for ECs and completing prerequisites for med school. I have heard that in health sci you have to take med prerequisites as your electives (is that a hassle?), and you might not be as prepared for the MCAT as a biomed student (is this true?). Also, I have heard that biomedical science is harder, so to make it easier you can take health science electives. Out of both of these routes which one is better.

  13. Hi All, So I've been accepted into physio at Ottawa U. However I was wondering if there were any anglophone Physio students out there who could sort of give me an idea of how hard the french is. I have a working knowledge of french and can speak well enough, however I am just really unsure about the course content and style of teaching and if I would be able to keep up with it all. I have never taken a university level course in french and have not been in a french class in 4 years. Just looking for some advice! Thanks
  14. Un message en français suivra. Have you received or do you know a friend that has received an interview offer from uOttawa's medical school this cycle? For the second year in a row, the uOttawa Black Medical Student Association is offering mock interviews to students coming from underrepresented communities and disadvantaged backgrounds hoping that through vertical and longitudinal mentorship, we can build more diverse community of medical students at uOttawa. To be as immersive as possible, the interviews will be in-person and conducted by volunteer members of the uOttawa BMSA on the Roger Guindon campus of uOttawa. Each interview will last about 50 minutes including feedback. As we are a non-for-profit club at the University of Ottawa, this opportunity is given free of charge. Pass along the word!

Pour la deuxième année consécutive, L’Association des étudiants en médecine noirs de l’Université d'Ottawa (uOttawa BMSA) offre des entrevues simulées aux étudiants issus de communautés sous-représentées et de milieux défavorisés, dans l’espoir qu’avec le mentorat vertical et longitudinal, nous pourrons créer une communauté plus diversifiée d’étudiants en médecine à l'Université d'Ottawa.

  17. Wondering if anyone received an email from University of Ottawa (French or English stream) acknowledging receipt of their application? It's my first year applying to their medical program, but third year applying via OMSAS (McMaster and NOSM) and I've always received an email from the individual schools acknowledging my application, in addition to the confirmation email from OMSAS. I received emails from McMaster and NOSM in December, but nothing from Ottawa... Is this normal? Do they simply do things differently? Or should I be contacting them to make sure there hasn't been an issue? Thanks in advance!
  18. Premed! Are you struggling with your medical school interviews? Have you been previously rejected after the medical school interviews? Do you want to turn your interview rejections into admissions? I get it. When I applied to medical school the first time around, I had 5 interviews, but was rejected by all 5 schools. Sad ad depressed, I was lost how to to turn that around. However, I came up with a specific approach to interviewing for medical schools. Using that same approach, I again had 5 interviews the following year. The difference is that this time, I got into all 5 medical schools. Since then, I have created the NextMD Community, and the group of medical students and doctors have used this exact same method to help many premed students that have struggled with their interviews turn rejections into admissions, and they are all on their way to become doctors. So if you say YES to any of the questions about, then check out the NextMD Community, check us out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/978669245641167/ For more information, check us out at: http://www.nextmd.ca/training BOOK: If you are down to learn the system we have come up with RIGHT NOW, and you are someone who loves to learn through reading, access the book here: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DFGHZ8S We offer the following programs: A.

  19. Does it require the MCAT? Because back in 2016 apparently they brought it back but in their website they say its not required. https://med.uottawa.ca/undergraduate/hidden/does-ottawa-require-mcat
  20. Hi, asking for a friend who is applying next year He was just wondering if anyone has received an English stream interview this past cycle with a wGPA of 3.91? But TBH, based on the invite/reject thread 2017, the minimum I saw for an undergrad IP (Out of Ottawa) was at least wGPA 3.93, so 3.91 doesn't really seem quite promising...but hopefully, someone out there can provide some hope !

  22. 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!
  23. Hi all, I wasn't sure if the psyc courses I took in University of Guelph could be seen as humanities/social science prerequisites for Ottawa so I emailed them. In the email reply that I got from them, they stated that "The Humanities or Social Sciences requirements can be completed by any courses that have no relations to Science. For i.e. Sociology, Psychology, Math, Religion, Administration, English Literature, English Writing..." I got confused when I saw Math as a qualifying Humanities / Social Sciences prereq, so I asked them if Math and Statistics can be counted, and they said yes. I'm just wondering if anyone else know about this. I might be overthinking but why have I never heard that Math and Stats can be Humanities / Social science courses? Thanks in advance!
  24. New Ottawa listing!!! www.MedsHousing.com Great opportunity First year resident is renting out two rooms in a beautiful Ottawa home. Please go to listing www.MedsHousing.com #0025730
  25. I have a question regarding eligibility for Ottawa. Here are my course load/ year so far: Year 1: 8 courses = 4.0 credits/FCE year 2: 9 courses = 4.5 credits/ FCE year 3: 10 courses = 5.0 credits/FCE currently taking a summer course. Will that qualify for 3 years of full time studies or 2? I am planning my courses for my 4th year and am deciding wether or not to overload to make all 4 years count in the event I am not granted an interview invite this cycle. If they do I will not need to over load. Thanks in advance for the help!
