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!
I was born in quebec but I studied at the university of saskatchewan. I took my prerequisite classes there. I unfortunately do not do very good in my organic chem and my physics class my first year. I got a 53 in organic chem and a 57 in physics. At the university of saskatchewan, a grade above a 50 is considered a pass, however, according to the McGill gpa scale, anything above a 60 is considered a pass. My question is, would I have to redo organic chem and physics at before January 15th in order for them to be considered as my prerequisites? If I redo them, would they recalculate my cgpa as well incorporating the new grades in the redone organic chem and physics class? (I'm taking about my cgpa not the science gpa) Thanks
