  1. Howdy! I'm an undergrad psychology major but wish to take science classes on the side that will help with the MCAT. I have taken organic chem, genetics, intro sociology, intro biochem,intro math part 1, and by fall I'll have done both part 1 and 2 of intro physics. Should I continue with genetics or is that a waste of time? Is taking part 2 of biochem worth it? Thank you all in advance!
  2. I am trying to upload a file with my scanned PR card in the personal info section. When I press save, it says "your information has been successfully saved", but when I come back to that section, there are no longer any files attached! Is anyone having this problem as well? I am having the same issue with the "additional documents" section as well. I am wondering if I should go through the whole application without revisiting (perhaps revisiting resets that section?). I am panicking because the deadline is on Monday!!!
  3. Hi guys, Congrats to everyone who got accepted into PT programs this year. I have a question for people who are accepted to UBC, QUEENS, WESTERN, and University of Saskatchewan. What was the GPA cut-off this year? Also, if you feel comfortable are you able to tell me the GPA you were accepted with into these programs? How many hours did you volunteer and what made your application stand out? I graduated with a BA (history major) two years ago, and decided to work in the field I initially thought was for me. And even now, I enjoy my job but it’s not something I’m extremely passionate about. I always wanted to pursue physiotherapy because I used to volunteer at a senior’s home in the rehab department alongside some physiotherapists. I enjoyed it so much and thought about switching my majors in the last year of my undergrad but didn’t go through with it since I was almost done my undergrad, and looking at the admissions requirements for MPT, I was worried that it would take me so much longer to become a PT. After working for two years at a comfortable job, I still can’t get the idea of wanting to pursue PT out of my head. So I decided to follow my passion and at least TRY, otherwise, I will always regret it. I’ve already completed the anatomy and physiology prereqs, and working through the rest of the prereqs this year. I’m hoping to apply for next year’s program at UBC, QUEENS, WESTERN and University of Saskatchewan. I’m a 70 -75% average student (undergrad) and trying to get my GPA high by taking some electives currently. It’s a little disheartening when everyone keeps telling me that 80% will not be enough. I want this so bad and I’m trying my best to get my GPA high enough to be at least considered. I have LOTS of experience working with people. I have over 100 hours volunteering with kids (coaching, and working with cognitively impaired children), and about 50 hours working with seniors in the rehab department. I’m volunteering in a rehab clinic right now and with a non-profit disability society. Any advice or recommendation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, B
  4. Im applying to both schools next year and I am wondering how to prepare what to expect for the critical skills test. The topic is a surprise, how are we to formulate an essay in one hour on it? If anybody has information about their experience and what I can expect from the prompt, I would greatly appreciate it.
  5. Hi, I'm interested in applying for an Emerg Med elective in either the University of Saskatchewan or the University of Manitoba. Could someone who has knowledge of these programs comment on what experience I should expect as a med student. - Are the preceptors good at teaching? - Do you get lots of hands on experience? - Good opportunity to get reference letters? Thanks!
  6. Interviews are coming up and one of the best ways to prepare for it according to many people is to practice within groups. We already have about 7 people in our group, however we are looking to gather more in order to mimic the MMI setting which would require a total of around 20 people. Anybody who is interested please leave a reply and I will include you into our group. for others who don't have an account you can just shoot me an email at: salam_hello@hotmail.com

  8. Hello everyone, I would like to say that I am a non-traditional student but then again, it's complicated. I am an RN in Saskatchewan and I want to go to med school. It has always been my dream to be a Dr. but as an immigrant, I had to get my PR one way or the other to qualify so I decided to study nursing as it a great career that I loved to get into and it was going to help me get my PR faster. After becoming a nurse, i feel like i need to do more which made me start researching med schools in Canada as it was my initial goal. Thing is, I do not have any premed courses (biochem, chem, organic chem, physics, etc) that will prepare me for the MCAT but someone told me that I don't have to take those courses but I should take prep courses like Kaplan or Prep101 which is what I intend to do. Can someone please advise or give me tips on what to do and anyone else in my current situation? I plan to go to Calgary or Edmonton in May or June for one of the prep courses when I decide which one to take. I know i have a lot of questions and I might not seem straight forward, so just let me know of any clarifications you might need.
  9. Hey everyone, I was wondering if someone could tell me what the required "Program Monitor Form" for the University of Saskatchewan is. They don't really give an explanation on their website. I emailed them, but I figured I'd ask here as well. Thanks!

    Mcat Prep

    Hello I am applying for fall 2016 as in province student at USASK and writing MCAT in September. Is anyone else in local Saskatoon area that is also currently preparing for MCAT and how they are preparing? As I am writing for first time and with the new 2015 MCAT program , are there any resources that can be more helpful than others? I have looked into Kalpan and examkrackers as my initial guides to refresh my knowledge, but still wondering if there are other sources I can get for practice questions that are tailored to the new MCAT 2015. Thanks
  11. I have been around these forums since 2 years. Often checking back back and learning a lot about the admissions process. The Non-trad success stories thread is still, IMHO, the greatest thread for us non-trads. So much inspiration brews out from there, and for some of us we really need it because we don't tend to get any other support out in the "real life". Now I want to give up my career and pursue med. I would really appreciate if you guys could help give this mid-twenties guy some support, and tell me that it's not as ridiculous as other people around me like to point out. Any advice would be great. Perhaps someone going through with this or already been through with such transition. Choosing the right degree? What questions to ask the adcoms? How to increase my chances the best I can? Also, I have international volunteer experience, as well as volunteer in leadership roles (non-clinical). Cheers!
