Hi, I would have some questions for the admission in MD in the University of Ottawa. I am currently a university student in Quebec so I would like to apply in the French stream of the MD program next year. Our province was highly touched with Covid-19 so our universities gave us the right to apply to the Pass/Fail option in our winter 2020 classes. As mentioned in the admission criteria of UofOttawa, to be eligible, only one class Pass/Fail per semester is allowed. Is this rule still applicable with the circumstances of covid-19 for next year admissions? Also, I've changed programs in university and has been given the choice of crediting some of my classes. Considering the fact that I already have one class pass/fail in my current program and one class that I would like to credit from my old program ( credited as equivalent (EQV)), would I stil be eligible to apply ? Thank you in advance!:)
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?
Hello all! I'm in a bit of a bind. I was perusing the UWO admissions FAQ (for no purpose other than to distract myself) and noticed this fun little line: "Please note, only one full or equivalent Pass/Fail credit will be permissible in each of the two years being considered for GPA." I chose to Credit/no credit 1.5 credits (3 classes) last semester due to personal reasons. To make up for that I am taking 4.0 credits this semester. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and if so what did you do? I was planning to apply to Western next year using this year's GPA and now I'm freaking out. TL;DR I fucked all the way up and CR/NCR 1.5 credits instead of the allowable 1.0. Is there anything I can do to remedy this???
I'm currently in my undergrad at the University of Toronto which offers a service called "Credit/No Credit", it essentially acts the same way as Pass/Fail in some other universities. Basically, if you select "Credit/No Credit" for a course, your mark for the course will not be recorded on your academic record and you will receive the credit for the course, contingent on the fact that you pass the course. I have done some research and they recommend not doing it for a course that is a requirement for graduate schools but mentions nothing of medical schools. I have researched but found nothing on medical schools' views on selecting "Credit/No Credit". Do you think medical schools will frown upon it?
