  1. I'm currently moving from BC to Calgary to pursue a 2-year nursing program but am thinking about practicing in a different province after I graduate if my IP chances are higher. My current plan is to apply to U of C and U of A while I'm there as soon as I'm eligible, but not sure if I will be competitive or not - thinking I may be more competitive in Saskatchewan or Manitoba. FYI: undergrad 80% average, masters 86% average, decent extracurriculars (30 NAQ at UBC). Any advice is much appreciated
  2. if two siblings apply to med school at the same time and they have similar ECs and same undergraduate degree. will that affect their application.
  3. Hi guys, I hope that I am posting on a correct forum. I don't really know of any other forums out there for U of C. I want to get into U of C for their biomedical program. I currently have low and high 70's in my grade 12 classes. Is this high enough to get into U of C for any science programs? I'm scared that it's not, but at the same time it's not terrible either. Thanks.
  4. Has anyone here done the neuroscience program at the university of calgary? What would be my chances of getting in, my grade 11 average is around 94.6%. How are the research opportunities? How difficult is it? Can anyone compare it to the biomed program at UofC? How are the profs and other students? Also just any general information about Calgary and the university would be helpful!! thank you
  5. Hi guys, Im currently have the worst mark I've every had in my one class (2nd yr biology course; evolution of eukaryotes) with a C+. The add/drop date is approaching next week and I was trying to gather some comments or recommendations from other students if it would be worth dropping the course and getting a W, or to stick with it and with the possibility of receiving a bad grade ©. Thanks!
  6. Kinda embraced to post this but I just got a 120 on cars..... horrific! I don't even know how that happened honestly. I did decent on the rest of the sections. I just can't do reading comp. My GPA is high and I have tons of ECs. It's too late to redo the mcat this year so should I just save my money? Or gamble applying since it's mcat is only worth 10%?

    Nursing Student Taking The Mcat

    Hello everyone, As a third year UofC nursing student, I have recently started my clinical rotation at the hospital where theory content that focuses on pathophysiology and pharmacology are applied to hands-on practice. However, I have a minimal background in the sciences because I did not take any undergraduate courses related to biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, or physics during my first year. Most of my courses in year 1 were geared toward the social sciences (psychology and sociology), anatomy and physiology, statistics, and an ethics course. Years 2, 3, and 4 are strictly allocated to nursing theory courses and practicums. Therefore, I'm unable to take science courses during the academic year. I am hoping to write the MCAT when I have four months off from school during the summer of 2016. Due to my minimal background in the sciences, I will most likely self-teach. My current plan at the moment: - I will study from the end of April to mid-August. I will take the MCAT at the end of August. - I will most likely be working part time. Therefore, I will allocate 5-6 hours per day, 6-7 days a week, for studying. (I am contemplating taking a prep course to supplement my learning, but I am still unsure as to which prep course I will utilize.) - I will be using the Kaplan prep books that I have already purchased and most likely supplement with EK resources in more difficult areas My questions: - What else can I do to improve my chances at at a competitive MCAT score? - Is taking an extra year, after I graduate, to take science courses a good idea? (I am still weighing the benefits and consequences of this. If I do choose to do this, I will have a wider array of possible medical schools due to completing the pre-requisites.) - Any other advice for a nursing student hoping to attend medical school? If there is anyone in a similar situation, I'd love to hear your story.
  8. Hello! I recently graduated with a B.Sc and I'm looking into some accelerated nursing programs. I only just found out about the accelerated program in Calgary and I was wondering if anyone had heard about or have been in this program? I read somewhere on here that it's a very theory based program and not as much hands on experience - is this true? I prefer hands on experience and I'd love an accelerated program that enables you to be IV endorsed (I believe UBC doesn't do this right?) My second question is how do you pick between the transfer route, and the degree holder route? Is one better than the other? The only thing I've been able to find so far to differentiate them is that the transfer route gets a four month summer break. My third question is about the anatomy/physiology pre-reqs. I have taken anatomy and done quite well, but I couldn't fit physiology into my schedule last semester. I've taken upper level physiologies, cell bio, and biochemistry in my degree but I think they were too specific for what the pre-reqs were looking for - at least for UBC. I was planning on taking them this fall through one of the online options but as I'm looking into the January intake do I need to have these done before I apply, or is it just prior to entering the course? Any info or advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated! I only found out about this program last night and the deadline date is coming up pretty quickly so I thought I should see if anyone had some quick words of wisdom for me! Thanks!
