  1. I’m worried that I won’t get into university, I want to got to Queen’s science program and to get in the average is 82+ and right now with my first semester marks my average is an 86, I had to redo advanced functions and I had a 57 in that course and ended up with a 90 after, I got an 87 in bio, and 80 in English. Second semester I have calculus, chemistry, kinesiology. I’m hoping to get 80-83 in calc 93 in chem and 96-97 in kinesiology. Has anyone gotten into Queen’s science program yet? And if so what was your average? Can I get in? I’m really worried that I won’t!! Thank you!
  2. I am Canadian. What are my chances for top american med schools? Which american schools would you recommend applying to? What would you recommend improving in my application between now and September? I have a 4.0 cGPA, 521 MCAT (127 CARS), many meaningful extracurriculars (although I am worried because I do not have any meaningful research or shadowing). A few of my major ECAs include: -Student trustee of a major Canadian research university -Member of student government -Youngest board member of a national education advocacy organization - National chair of prestigious political training program (involved for 7 years) -250 hours EMT overseas -Teach sports to children with disabilities for many years -Executive of large cultural club on campus -a ton of intramural high school, sports, high school class president... (good stuff in high school) Thanks!!!

    Vancouver vs Toronto vs Edmonton???

    What's up people, I know this forum has people from all over Canada and just wanted some opinions on these cities. What are the best / worst things about each. Also some specifics: Cost of living, people/social life, proximity to activities/other cities, enviorment/nature, climate, highlights (parks, resorts, resturants), job oppourtunities, etc. Anything relavent to the living experience. Would love to be in close proximety to both parks and downtown. Love to get away from work and go have a bite to eat and then go hiking. Big fan of nature & nightlife too. Would love any input (even on cities not mentioned here!) would like to get a grasp on the different cities in Canada. If any has an advantage in medical oppourtunities that would be great too, ie: big hospitals, research, etc (from what I gather: vancouver is really expensive and rains a lot but has really nice views, lakes, mountains. Calgary/Edmonton is really cold and is more of a small city pretty far from everything but also has nice mountain ranges but nightlife is questionable, Toronto is just a big city great nightlife but with really small parks uncomparable to the others). Cheers, Richard
  4. Premed! Are you struggling with your medical school interviews? Have you been previously rejected after the medical school interviews? Do you want to turn your interview rejections into admissions? I get it. When I applied to medical school the first time around, I had 5 interviews, but was rejected by all 5 schools. Sad ad depressed, I was lost how to to turn that around. However, I came up with a specific approach to interviewing for medical schools. Using that same approach, I again had 5 interviews the following year. The difference is that this time, I got into all 5 medical schools. Since then, I have created the NextMD Community, and the group of medical students and doctors have used this exact same method to help many premed students that have struggled with their interviews turn rejections into admissions, and they are all on their way to become doctors. So if you say YES to any of the questions about, then check out the NextMD Community, check us out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/978669245641167/ For more information, check us out at: http://www.nextmd.ca/training BOOK: If you are down to learn the system we have come up with RIGHT NOW, and you are someone who loves to learn through reading, access the book here: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DFGHZ8S We offer the following programs: A. Self Study: 1. The MMI Mastery Method Online Course: http://www.nextmd.ca/training 2.

One-on-One personalized coaching: 3-hour package 5-hour package 10-hour package (includes The MMI Mastery Method Online Course for free) Contact for detail: consultant@nextmd.ca Finally, this is a stressful time. But don't let the INTERVIEW hinder you from your dream of becoming a doctor. Good luck to all the applicants who are interviewing this year. NextMD Turn Rejections into Admissions

  7. I am a high school student who is considering to accept Ryerson’s Biomedical Sciences program. I have been accepted to Western Health Sciences, Brock Medical Sciences (and their MedPlus extra program which is really good), Laurier Health Sciences, Uft Life Sci, Carleton Health Sci, and McMaster Life Sci. My major concerns involve the arrangement of the coop terms. Medical Schools in Canada require at least two school semesters to be consecutive for students enrolled into coop programs. In Ryerson, semesters 5 and 6 are separated by three work terms. I wanted to know if I would be able to keep semesters 5 and 6 together, then have them followed by the three coop terms. On the other hand, if I choose not to take coop, would I be at a disadvantage since most of the research positions will be taken by the coop students? Additionally, I will be a commuting student and would like to know the general timings of the lectures, tutorials and labs last year. Lastly, are there any additional resources at Ryerson that would help me with the MCAT preparation, or the general application of medical school (including volunteering and job shadowing opportunities)? Even for volunteer research places downtown, won't I be competing with UFT students? ANY help and info on Ryerson graduates in med school would help. My goal is to go to a small university where I stand out. I know people in med schools from all universities except ryerson! My financial situation isn't so great either and therefore Ryerson helps. I have to accept an offer by next week.

    MMI Prep

  16. I am going to do my undergrad in Canada and I was wondering if anyone knows if US schools would take into account the 'rank' of the school. Like if I went to Toronto, which is well known, would vet schools there treat me any differently than if I went to say Guelph? I already know that I would have different requirements than in state applicants like a higher GPA, so I am stressed that if I do my undergrad in Toronto and get a lower GPA than I would in Guelph it'll decrease my chances of getting into a Vet School. Also, just in case anyone wonders why I want to go to the US for Vet School- I'm actually from the US but I moved to Ontario during high school and I want to stay here for undergrad plus I've already been accepted to Guelph and am waiting to hear back from Toronto.

  18. Hi all, I am wondering when U of T will contact me regarding my application and status? I sent my application last week and my transcripts should arrive in the mail in the next few business days. How long did it take for them to contact you after you paid and applied? I'm just nervous because I don't want an incomplete application. As you can tell, I've never done this before haha. Any help is appreciated.
  19. Hi everyone, Do we have to explicitly mention words from the clusters/attributes in our essays or can we use synonyms/talk about the general ideas? In other words, are they looking for buzzwords or thematic allusion to the clusters/attributes? I.e. talking about how I managed my time but not mentioning "time-management" or talking about accountability without mentioning "responsibility" Thanks!

  23. Quick question for the upper years at UofT med: This may be dumb to ask but where do you spend the majority of your time class-wise, in other words - where would you recommend finding a place to live? A place that is near the main hospital of your academy or a place in between said hospital and the UofT campus etc etc? For example if I say got into Fitz would I want to live closer to St. Mike's or the actual campus? Thanks in advance!
