  1. Hello, I am applying to university soon and I would like to stay in Toronto as much as possible. For all my life, I have always been considering the traditional route of taking Life sciences to go to Med school, but my options have opened ever since I started to play the harp. I am graduating from the IB program and I want to avoid workload stress however, I do understand that taking music as a major will require a lot of my time, I heard, double the amount as normal undergrads do. Despite that, I also play music as a form of de-stressing and I go to it when I don't want to study. I also heard that there are a lot of advantages with being a music major, with it improving your likelihood in getting into university because of uniqueness, dexterity, reflectivity etc. I want to become a coroner so I definitely have to take Med school. I'm not actual sure how university works with all the majors, minors, specialists, degrees etc. So considering that I want to have the minimum amount of stress while still having the required courses for Med school, what would be the best options for me? Major in music and take bio courses during summer school? (yikes) Take Life sciences and somehow find a way to do music (um?) or are there any options? If I take music as a major, would I have to take a gap year before I get into med school? Thank you so much!
  2. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  3. I'm a grade 12 student that is graduating this year. I want to go to medical school, but I want to go to an undergrad that prepares me the most for it (GPA, MCAT) and other requirements. My options I'm thinking of right now are: Waterloo Biomedical Science (no co-op) Pros: Good structure and has many courses that are perquisites for med schools Cons: I heard it was hard (courses like embryology) which I won't be able to get a high GPA Waterloo Honours Science (no co-op) Pros: Lots of flexibility in terms of electives (so you can boost GPA) Cons: Idk (no structure?) Waterloo Life Science (co-op) Pros: Idk Cons: Idk McMaster Life Science (co-op) Pros: McMaster is known for their sciences Cons: Enrollment says 1000 so large class sizes? Waterloo ranks higher than McMaster in terms of reputation (if that matters). Waterloo is known for co-op. Guelph Biomedical Science (don't think so) Pros: Idk Cons: Haven't heard much about it (like it doesn't have a big reputation) Would co-op matter? Like if I don't get into med school would it get me a higher chance to get jobs and would it be good for graduate school? Which school has the better co-op? In terms of GPA, which program is the best? In terms of preparing me for the MCAT, which program is the best? Which school is best in terms of marks, ECs, community? I'm thinking of McMaster Life Science because they have a medical school and I've heard McMaster is a good school for science (not sure tho). In general, which program would give me the highest chance of getting into med school? Can you provide me a more in-depth explanation of why this program is good (if you took it)? Are there any other programs I should consider (other than McMaster Health Science and Western Medical Science which I did not get into)? Correct me if I'm wrong with any of the programs (I really don't know much about them).
  4. 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!
  5. Hey guys, I'm about to finish CEGEP soon and I'm still very confused about the path i'm supposed to follow in order to get in medschool since i'm from Quebec! I even spoke to Diane Parent . She told me that all i needed was to get the right Wgpa in my pre-requires courses to get in. But now i'm reading what you guys wrote here and i'm lost.. haha can i just do my pre-requires and apply as an undergrad at Uottawa? Or do I have to go get a BAC frst? thanks
  6. Hey folks, a quick question. Did you check if all of your verifiers received the UofA email for verification? I asked one of my verifiers, and it seems he has not received it anything yet from UofA. Do all activity verifiers get checked? If so, then does it simply mean that this individual who has not received anything yet will be emailed a bit later? I ask this because all the other verifiers got emailed last week, except perhaps this person. So I'm not sure if I should talk to UofA about it and perhaps tell them to resend the email. (Btw, I am an in-province applicant, if that would help with anything) Thanks again.
  7. I'm aware that NSERC USRA strongly looks at the students' GPA and what year they're in, but are they also looking for students who aren't from a complete science department? I'm double majoring in Biology and Visual Arts and I'm currently in first year. My first semester grade is a around a 3.3 GPA which isn't very high, so does NSERC USRA only look at your first semester grades?
  8. 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.
  9. I'm interested in applying for the NSERC USRA program at a few universities (UofWaterloo,Queens, etc..), but I'm just not sure about how students get paid? I'm sure it depends on the university you go to, but the schools I'm applying to aren't my institution so I have to think about living expenses and I'm confused about how they distribute the award. I'm new to this forum and I tried reading on their website, but I still don't understand the financial part, so thank you to those who can answer my question.
  10. Ok so I'm new to this stuff and this may sound stupid but do med schools drop your worst year or I've even heard they only count only your last two? Sorry for sounding kinda useless I'm just a first year still a baby trying to get used to uni any response is appreciated and good luck everyone!!
  11. Hi, I have some quick questions : Can you practice medicine after getting your MDCM degree ? What is the equivalent of the Med-P program at McGill in other universities? I was also wondering if it was better for example to do a Bachelor's degree in chemistry at McGill then transfer to UofT (or any other university) for med school, instead of doing Med-P at McGill and residency in another school. Also do you have to take.the MCAT at one point in the Med-P program? It's just that I don't understand the use of not doing it ; if you transfer to any other university, they will want the MCAT score so.. I don't know if the Med-P program prepares you well for the MCAT. Sorry if this isn't making sense. I can't seem to grasp the concept of a Med-P program. It's preparatory for what ? What can you do with a MDCM degree? Is med P med school or undergraduate? Please lighten me up, thank you. P.-S.: I have read everything on the internet about the program and I still don't understand it.. sigh.
  12. Hi All, This post is aimed at past/current MScOT students who can give us prospective/incoming students more information on the program and reasons to accept our offer. Personally, I would like to know if the program is overly technical/super science-oriented? Thanks!
  13. Hi there, I am a grade 11 honours/AP student who has a passion for sciences and medicine. Recently I've been browsing these forms and I've seen that this site is generally a good place to gain advice from former students about University and post graduate endeavours, so I thought, 'hey, why not give it a try'. I am here to ask if anyone knows of any successful and fulfilling (financial and personally fulfilling) fields to go into after an undergraduate program such as Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences and/or Biochemistry. I am also open to taking/planning on attending graduate school after undergrad if needed. I, of course, know that I can go to medical school and become a doctor (which in and of itself features a wide variety of specialities). However, I want to keep my options open. I really enjoy biology, chemistry and mathematics. I also love researching and working hands on in labs to find solutions to problems (so I looked into working in a hospital laboratory but the income wasn't too appealing). I just feel like the only medical career that will allow someone to be fulfilled (and financially successful), is a doctor [re-reading that statement I realize that it makes me seem very closed minded, which is why I need help]. Hopefully someone on here can shed some light on careers that are often over looked when choosing a career in Science and Medicine. Thank you for your help.
  14. What are your top choices for OT or PT and why? I want to go into OT but the programs seem similar to me in terms of curriculum. Does anyone have any helpful info/links distinguishing the programs from one another and what factors would personally influence your decision to choose one school over another? I've applied to UBC, Queens, Western, UofT, Alberta (all OT), McMaster (OT and PT).
  15. Hi, does anyone know the rank of the last university candidate accepted in the pharmacy program in the previous years? (2011,2012,2013,2014) I know that in 2015, the last candidate accepted had the 90th rank.
  16. I received an offer of admission to Trent U compressed program at 2:42pm today. Anyone else got an offer?
  17. Hi Everyone! I'm applying to a bunch of universities for undergraduate programs at the moment. I'm debating between attending two different programs at two different universities at the moment. The first program which I am interested in is the Co-op Science and Business program at the University of Waterloo. Of course, my ultimate goal is to attend medical school in Canada, but I think that having the business background will allow me to have a solid backup route in case medicine does not work out for me. The second program which I am interested in the Co-op life sciences program at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Now I know that U of T has a reputation for being "challenging" or "difficult". I do realize that this may possibly decrease my chances of getting into medicine. However, I do know people, like my own family members, who have gone into a medical school in Canada from this university. So I guess it's not completely unattainable. So at the moment I'm debating between both programs, but I am leaning towards the Science and Business program at Waterloo because of its uniqueness. Do you think that this may be an appropriate program to help me achieve my goal of attending medical school? Thanks a lot!
  18. Hi, I'm currently studying at Montreal and I have 30,103 of r-score. I really want to get in to pharm so I checked the requirement in Ontario (University of Toronto,Waterloo...) and it says that I only need 70%/75% overall in every university courses. Since Quebec uses the r-score system, I was wondering how can I know if I make the cut or not. Thanks!
  19. I'm currently completing my last semester in CEGEP, and I'm pretty sure I prefer McGill over the French medical schools. However, as I took a science course last summer, it is almost certain that I won't get in. Here are my questions: after how many years were you finally accepted if you weren't the first time you applied? And did you have amazing grades? An astonishing CV? Also, is it easier for a university student to get into med at UdeM than at McGiIll? Thank you
