  1. Hi everyone, I have some concerns regarding my overall application and was hoping for some feedback, insight, & suggestions/advice. My undergrad career has been a mountain climb, which is shown by my annual GPA trend: 1st Year: 1.91 2nd Year: 2.17 3rd Year: 2.82 4th Year: 3.68 5th Year: TBD I will be entering my 5th year and am hoping to score even higher than my 4th year (3.68). For some time I had a misconception that Western looks at your two best years and requires the overall GPA to be 3.7 OVER the 2 years. I recently heard that they require 3.7 in EACH of the two best years. (Depressing discovery). I am a SWOMEN student, therefore I do have some advantage (pretaining to enrolment seats and MCAT cutoffs), but my 4th year 3.68 may not allow me to apply to Western. I am already about to begin my fifth year in September, but that will do no good for Western taking into account that they need 3.7 in EACH of the two best years. Could you provide some insight regarding what I should consider my options? Here are some of my thoughts: I would qualify for Dalhousie medical school assuming I can maintain above 3.65 annual GPA in my fifth year - they require 3.7 but round to the nearest tenth. Therefore I hope to apply there in the 2019 application cycle. For Western, my only option is to do a 6th year and then apply - not sure if anyone has ever done this, or what people's feedback regarding this would be. Over the past couple of years, I have become more determined to pursue medicine and tried my best to cross challenges in my personal life in order to improve my standing, and I do not want to let my past academic record become an absolute barrier during this pursuit. Mentally, I tell myself that I can be prepared to give extra time towards my undergraduate degree. Please let me know what you think. Furthermore, do you have any insight regarding American Medical schools, and Ross University? In regards to residency, I understand that coming back to Canada has very slim chances. However, I currently don't see a personal objection to the idea of matching for a residency spot in the U.S. (and working there) - I just don't know about the exact match rate. I understand I said a lot, but I would appreciate any thought, insight, or advice/recommendation from the PreMed101 community. Thank you!
  2. I noticed some schools suggested a visual acuity score of 20/20 was recommended for their residency program (on CaRMS program description). How important is this (in terms of getting into the residency and practicing as an ophthalmologist)? Do ophthalmologist generally not wear glasses?
  3. Hey guys, I was wondering if we could start a thread for specifically the MD/PhD applicants, where we can discuss the application process, the requirements for specific programs, interviews and stats. There is not a specific thread that i could find where all prospective students can come together and discuss and help each other out. I am not sure if this goes against any of the rules for the forum or not, so if the moderators don't agree then we don't have to proceed. Schools applied: GPA: Undergrad or grad student: Publications: Something along those lines
