  1. 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!:)

  3. Hi everyone ! Fellow premed here I was wondering if there are any youtube channels you have been watching for motivation/ what it is like in med school you enjoy watching!
  4. I'm finishing my BComm in marketing this academic year and am planning on taking all mcat/med school prereqs the following year. I am considering completing these courses at cegep level— reason being that my current university tends to split up the lab and theory component of a class to be taken in separate semesters plus the level of difficulty is likely greater at university level. I know a few med students who obtained bachelors in degrees outside of science, went back to cegep to complete their prereqs and ended up attending Montreal-based medical schools (i know McGill, University of Montreal and a few other Quebec med schools will accept cegep courses from an undergrad applicant) but I'm not sure if other Canadian medical schools and US medical schools would as well...I know I could call up each one individually and ask but...If anyone has a general idea of the answer to this question, that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  5. So I really want to get into medical school and I want to push through my last two years of biomedical science at York knowing i gave it my all. So if anyone who's obtained 3.9s/4.0 could share their study methods and tips, that would be much appreicated.

  7. Salut, j'ai été accepté en kiné et en génie logiciel à Udem et à Poly respectivement, mais je me demande lequel choisir. Les deux m'intéressent autant (mis à par que je kiff moins la physique). Je sais que génie logiciel serait de loins le meilleurs choix au niveau du plan B (meilleur salaire, très bon classement, beaucoup de possibilités de carrières, etc.), mais j'ai entendu dire que si tu veux continuer en médecine c'est plus facile d'avoir un bon GPA en kiné qu'en génie. Quel choix devrait-je faire ? Disons que c'est pas bon comme pre med, est-ce que ce serait un bon tremplin pour entrer en médecine dentaire ?
  8. I am looking to choose a program between these offers. My end goal is med school, but i want a university where it’ll be easy to achieve that goal and gpa without becoming depressed and drained from studying 24/7. I would also like a good atmosphere and one that is welcoming to diverse students as i am a POC. Which program is best suited for me?

  10. I am I med sci and I don't know if I should take physics 1028 (with Poepping) or physics 1301 (with Wong). So, could someone help me? It would be greatly appreciated. BTW I haven't taken grade 12 physics.
  11. Hi! I'm looking for some advice on the confidential assessment form and choosing references for OMSAS. I'm a Quebec applicant and QC schools don't ask for reference forms/letters so I don't know too much about this. I saw on the OMSAS and Ontario med school websites that we're asked to provide one academic- or employment reference and one personal (non-academic) reference. I've been able to get a professor of mine and my research supervisor to be my academic references (they both know me pretty well). I've also asked my manager of 2 years (I work in retail) who I'm really close to to also be my reference, and I feel she's able to speak about my personal qualities as well as professional. My only concern is that my manager can fit in both categories (employment/personal-character) and I don't know how strict Ontario med schools are about the two categories of references and wouldn't want my application to get rejected for such a small technicality. If anyone can clear this up and let me know if my references are okay, it would be great! Also, are references for Ontario med schools part of the selection process (for example, McMaster is 32% GPA, 32% CARS, and 32% Casper) or are they used just to make sure the applicant is not a red flag? thanks
  12. Hi, so I may have the opportunity to go on a wildlife conservation mission in Thailand or Bali, however, I can also choose to go on a medical mission/learning thing in Vietnam or India. The wildlife conservation mission is really cool and more hands on while the medical missions are more seminar and workshops. For medical school, which would be a better option? It seems intuitive that the medical mission would be the better choice, but I feel that it might be very standard (like many people have done it) whereas the elephant conservation mission may be more unique. Thoughts?
  13. For premed and med school, do they value competencies in foreign languages like French?
  14. Hi, I'm still in high school and I'm looking at which "premed" program to apply to next year that focuses on preparing students for medicine. I know that any program is good as long as you can get a good GPA and high MCAT scores, but are they any specific programs (in Canada) that gear specifically towards premed? Thanks in advance!
  15. Since professors have to maintain their class average around 60%, would programs with a high cut-off from high school be harder since the professor's will need to make assessments more difficult because all of the students will be high achievers. I'm asking this because I want to go to medical school and need a high GPA which is why I am conflicted between a program like western med sci which is full of keeners vs something like York Kinesiology. I know you probably see many annoying people like me on this website but please bear with me.
  16. I have gotten offers from both programs but I am having trouble choosing one. Both campuses are absolutely gorgeous and they are both similar science courses. So, the only deciding factor left is the ease of getting a high GPA. So, if anyone knows in which program it would be easier for me to achieve a higher GPA, please let me know. Thanks.
  17. My GPA's not stellar but my MCAT and ECs are decent. What would be my chances to get into med school in Ontario? I'm in Life Sciences at McMaster. Would taking a masters be a good idea? And if so, which degree should I be thinking about? First yr: 3.3 Second yr: 3.87 Third yr: 4.0 MCAT: 525 ECs: Hospital shadowing, exec position for Doctors without Borders, Global Medical Brigades, research, design reviewing for devices for patients with disabilities, multiple awards for social justice debates and research competitions Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
  18. Hello, I am applying to university soon and I would like to stay in Toronto as much as possible. For all my life, I have always been considering the traditional route of taking Life sciences to go to Med school, but my options have opened ever since I started to play the harp. I am graduating from the IB program and I want to avoid workload stress however, I do understand that taking music as a major will require a lot of my time, I heard, double the amount as normal undergrads do. Despite that, I also play music as a form of de-stressing and I go to it when I don't want to study. I also heard that there are a lot of advantages with being a music major, with it improving your likelihood in getting into university because of uniqueness, dexterity, reflectivity etc. I want to become a coroner so I definitely have to take Med school. I'm not actual sure how university works with all the majors, minors, specialists, degrees etc. So considering that I want to have the minimum amount of stress while still having the required courses for Med school, what would be the best options for me? Major in music and take bio courses during summer school? (yikes) Take Life sciences and somehow find a way to do music (um?) or are there any options? If I take music as a major, would I have to take a gap year before I get into med school? Thank you so much!
  19. Hi all, I got accepted to med school in Canada this year first time applying, and since then I've been working on a massive premed package that includes all the Khan Academy (KA) notes (complete), supplemented with a personal spin to make things easy. The package also includes my schedule, my activity log, a score predictor, 100 helpful reference documents with mnemonics and graphics of common topics, formulas, interview prep, cars tips ethics... everything that got me from premed to admitted, and now I'm passing it on to you. You can find the post here on Reddit Wordpress (easy link is tinyurl.com/MCATguide) I hope this is helpful for you all! Please let me know if you have any questions or queries.
  20. Hi everyone! I need some advice on my options on applying to US medical schools. I've had a rough start to my undergrad, and hope someone (anyone) help me out, especially canadians who have gotten into US medical schools . Im really sorry in advance for the long and possibly annoying post, but here it goes: Im a 3rd year undergrad student in Canada,Ontario. My first year i've gotten all C+'s (assuming this is a 2 something on the american scale), and this was with a reduced course load! Here's the problem, I cant apply to Canadian schools because they heavily penalize students who haven't taken a full course load, and getting horrible first year grades doesn't help my situation .Second year rolls around, I try increasing my course load (to a 60% load), and I get ~3.7 gpa for the first semester . After first semester of 2nd year, I dropped out and took a year off. Then, after my year off i came back to finish my 2nd year, and I end up getting ~3.9 during the year (with full course loads). Currently, im in my 3rd year and Im thinking about taking my mcat this summer. Ok so finally, the question is that do i still have a chance at MD schools, or am i fighting an upward battle thats impossible to achieve? Oh and for extracurriculars i have : Research (4 months), Volunteering with food banks, and Volunteering at a homeless shelter, and No shadowing hours or Leadership positions yet.
  21. Hi all! My name is Christopher and I am the author of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca which I know a few of you have found to be a useful resource for your premed journey. This summer a classmate and I have been busy working on a new podcast called Pluripotent Premed which we intent to act as an audio guide for navigating the premed years as a Canadian applicant. We dive into all topics related to the MCAT, med school interview, extracurriculars, and more. We will also be interviewing classmates of ours who are got into med from alternative backgrounds (e.g. arts, nursing, other careers) and also those who are pursuing an M.D./PhD to give you a better idea of how the program works and what to expect. Today is the release date for 'Episode 0', which is an introductory episode that doesn't have any specific premed content, but rather just introduces us and the podcast, and what to expect. From here on out, we will release an episode every Monday. If this sounds like something that you're interested in, please check us out on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and on podcasting platforms (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, and most other major podcasting platforms). I will post an episode release schedule in the comments so that you know what episodes are coming up! I will post an episode release schedule below so that you know what episodes are coming up! Thanks for reading! We are really excited about this project and we hope to help as many people as possible. Please feel free to message me on here or on our Facebook page if you have any questions! TL;DR - the author of Ultimate Premed Package has teamed up with a classmate to make a premed podcast directed at Canadian premeds to guide you through the MCAT, interviews, and more. Episodes every Monday
  22. I know that there is Western Medical Science which sends a lot of students to med other than health science, are there any other programs like these? I want to know this because I am in grade 12 and want to be a doctor. I want to take a bachelor's program which is science oriented while also giving me the best shot possible for med school. Most of time what I hear is that if you don't get into the two courses I mentioned your best choice will be to go to an easy university so you can still get a high GPA (rather than a life science program which are generally tough), like you would in health sci due to grade inflation, is all of this true? Finally, if it is true, what are some science based programs I can take at one of these easy universities like Guelph and York, while also having opportunities for extracurriculars and research at the university. I live in the GTA by the way.
  23. Hi everyone, I was hoping for a bit of insight on my chances for the upcoming cycle! I'm quite new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post - forgive me if I've gotten it wrong! I'm in Ontario. my last two years of undergrad calculate out to a 3.88, but my CGPA is a 3.62. I am applying to Canadian schools exclusively this year and I'm planning to choose those which take your last two/two best years.. I know Western and Queens, but would be really grateful for some other suggestions of where I could apply. I'm taking the MCAT in late August. Not sure if it changes things, but my extracurriculars are pretty good - president of an international organization, research at a reputable hospital, 5 years of bedside experience, 3 years of health promotion, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Best of luck to all those applying this year.

  25. As a result of existential circumstances, poor study habits, and poor strategic course planning, my GPA is approximately a 3.4ish. I will be pursuing a research-based masters program this upcoming fall. I am pretty close to giving up my dream as a doctor due to my low GPA. However, what are my chances of making it into med school after my masters?
