    GPA FOR TRANSFER UNDERGRAD STUDENT

    Hello, I'm a student atyorku planning to transfer to macU, I know that yorku uses a 9 point while mac uses a 12 point, if I transfer tomac does that mean that my GPA will be in mcmaster standards now? (forexample if I got an A in one course will it go as a 3.9 as opposed to 3.8 at york?) Thank you
  2. Hello everyone, it's my first time posting on this forum. I'm currently enrolled in engineering at Ryerson University, but am on medical withdrawal. I have completed two full years at Ryerson but since September of 2017 I have been dealing with a chronic illness that has not allowed me to return. I originally planned to pursue either medicine or pharmacy but couldn't afford med school so opted to go for engineering as I have always been interested in the sciences. I've fallen in love with medicine again in this two year span and I feel miserable in my engineering program. I've had a long time to consider my options and I'm doing a little better financially but I don't know where to go from here. Should I transfer? Complete my degree? Start a new undergraduate? I'm not too sure if GPA is carried over to new schools. My GPA is currently 3.0 if that helps at all. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. I just want to know where my options lie.
  3. Hello, I am a Canadian citizen (Ontario) who is currently at a US medical school. Without disclosing too much I would like a transfer to a Canadian medical school in my 3rd year as clinicals begins. Is it by any chance possible?
  4. I am trying to transfer into an internal medicine program. I am looking into most options including inter-university transfer. Does anybody know or heard of any spots opening up in the PGY1 year anywhere in Canada at an English school? Thank you, ILtM
  5. I'm wondering if anyone had any advice to give or information on potentially transferring between Canadian medical schools for clerkship. To my understanding, some schools accept full transfers into their program starting in 3rd year (for 4 year programs) and others, while not allowing full transfers, will allow students to do core clinical rotations at their centre during their clerkship (so they still get their degree from their initial institution). I ask because I'm getting married this coming summer and I would like to be closer to my spouse who is fixed in Montreal. Ideally I'd like to be within a few hours drive of Montreal, but just about any Ontario school will work. Thanks!
  6. Hello, I am finishing my first semester of university in a kinesiology program. I like it, it's okay, but I don't love it like some of my peers are loving their programs and schools. This bothers me because it is so expensive, a lot of effort, time and stress. I know I want to stay in a program like kin, but I have also had nursing bothering me in the back of my mind since applying to schools in grade 12. Some of the things I really like here are: the campus and surrounding areas, the vegetarian-friendly community, my volunteer placement and the content of most of my courses. However, compared to other schools I find this school to be boring & somewhat disorganized. Not many clubs, campus becomes a graveyard on weekends, not a good party scene. I just feel like I am not having a good time and all I do is school work. I don't know if this is me adjusting, or something else, but I just know this university is not as great as I thought it would be, and it is kind of upsetting. I want more out of this experience. Should I look in to other schools/programs? Should I wait another semester or two to see if this is where I want to stay? How do you know if you should transfer/consider transferring? Is it WORTH it to transfer?
  7. Hey so I've been thinking about my application profile and I'm not sure what to think of it. Has anyone in this forum experienced/known of the following situation and can enlighten me about it? So I am currently enrolled in a PharmD pharmacy program. I have completed my MCAT and my GPA is in good standing as well as my extra-curricular. However, I realized upon entering the PharmD program I have only barely completed 15 undergraduate (specifically towards a bachelor degree, as per required by all the Ontario universities) which is inclusive of lab credits. Thus, technically I have not taken my second term of my third year and don't have as many third year credits as most applicants. Since PharmD course credits don't count towards the credit count, i will only have 15 undergraduate course credits from here on out. So here's some questions: -Can anyone comment on transferring to a Med program from a Pharmacy Program prior to completion? If so, how many undergraduate course credits? -Even if i'm eligible for my first application cycle, how about subsequent years i.e. my 4th/5th year in post secondary studies? Will I be eligible even if my credit count has not progressed pass 15? -Is there any separate system or undergraduate professional program (i.e. Law, Dentistry etc) because they're technically not graduate nor undergraduate. -Are things looking grim? Thanks for hearing me out
  8. Hi everyone, I was thinking about transferring into UWO health sci program from another university. I was wondering if any current students or graduates from the program could provide feedback on the program. Whether that be about the difficulty of the program, how subjective the courses tended to be, etc. Thank you in advance! Your help is really appreciated as I'm trying to decide whether or not I should transfer!
  9. Hi everyone, This is my very first post on the forum and I must say you guys have made some great things on the page. I have found quite a lot of helpful guides to navigate towards med school on here. Thank you everyone in advance, and here is my situation. I am currently in my 2nd year in a 3-year degree in Biomedicine (pre-med in Australia). I am originally from Vietnam and my family was just granted permanent residency recently in Canada so I am hoping to apply to Med school in Canada once I finish my degree in Aus, UoT specifically. Now, I understand that UoT, and all other medical schools that I am aware of, require all internationally educated applicants to have an equivalent of a 4-year degree in Canada. And so I contacted the admission office of UoT Med to ask about my options. I was advised that after my completion in Australia, I should apply for transfer to UoT for an undergraduate degree to make up for the lack of length. Now that's where disasters start coming in. I have realised, at least at UoT, that if you've studied for more than 2 years in a certain degree, you won't be able to transfer to an undergrad degree anymore. Instead, you can only either start a second degree in an unrelated field (which I'm not sure I want to do, and lengthen my undergrad life for another 3 years) or take non-degree courses. So I know it's a rare situation to be in and just let me know so if you find it hard to give any advice so I won't expect anything. But my question now is has anyone been in a similar situation (I suspect not) and does UoT accept non-degree courses as an equivalent for a make-up year? I have also considered transferring to York, which allow for my 3-year degree. But just hope to know what you think. Thank you so much!
  10. Attended University elsewhere for a year, transferred to where I am now, and am currently in third year here (different program, different courses). Does anyone know whether my grades from my past University can be used, in combination with an academic year from my current University in applying to UWO Dental school (i.e. top two years from two different programs in two different Universities)? Also, if I have taken more than 5 credits in a year, will UWO only use the top 5 in determining the academic average, or will they consider all courses taken during that period?
  11. Hi everyone! Sorry for the long post, but just looking for some quick advice on grad school/applying! I'm currently finishing my first year of grad school in a 2 year thesis-based MSc in epidemiology. After a lot of discussion and contemplation, I've decided that I really want to apply to med school once I'm finished. However in a recent conversation with my supervisor, he suggested that my project was coming along really well and that if I transferred to the PhD stream this summer I could probably finish it in an extra year and a half (so 3.5 total, as opposed to 2 years for the Masters). I am enjoying the project, however given the timing of admissions (I'd probably finish in Dec 2017), I'm a bit torn on whether to delay applying for another 2 years to transfer. I am interested in pursuing research as a clinician, so that's why I'm drawn to getting the PhD as opposed to simply sticking with the MSc. However, I'm a bit unclear as to whether there would be a significant benefit to having a PhD vs MSc, especially since this will be before I start medical school and decide what to specialize in (for instance, my project is examining lung cancer outcomes, however I don't know at this point if oncology is what I'll end up in). I know I could apply for MD/PhD programs, however that would be an extra 3-4 years (vs 1.5) at this point, and since you typically start your research only a year into medical school, I think I might have the same problem about the focus of my research. Alternatively, I know if I apply now and decide later that I really do want to pursue the PhD, I could do so after medical school part-time or through one of the clinician-scientist training programs, so I'm not sure if that's a better option, especially considering the difference in funding/salary at that point. I think another issue that's drawing me to the PhD is that this would be my first time applying (if I applied this Oct, assuming I stick with the MSc), so I don't have the best idea what my chances of getting in this year are. My undergrad GPA is decent (3.88/4), and I do have a number of ECs and a couple of publications (not first author), but unfortunately most of my research activities (conferences, first-author publications) will be done this year after the October application deadline. I'll be writing my MCAT in late August, so I'd have to decide before I get those results. Thanks for any and all advice! TL;DR Applying to med school and want to do clinical research. Trying to decide whether it is worth it to delay applying for 2 years to transfer from MSc to PhD
