Hi, I'm planning on taking online biochem and online English at UWO ( I go to UWO). However, I've contacted good American medical schools and they seem to not like online courses. However, how they would be able to know whether my course was taken online, as UWO does not specify on the transcript whether it was online or not. It denotes the class section , my mark and the title of the course. Does anyone have experience with this? Has anyone who applied to US medical schools got in, even though they took biochem online? Do US secondaries ask us to specify which courses were taken online, because a majority seem to not ask this on their applications, etc? AMCAS will see my official transcript, yet it won't show my course was online because it uses UWO's way of marking. Also, Ottawa medical school states you shouldn't take too many online courses? Will online courses taken at UWO be listed as online on OMSAS? Will they have any way of finding out if my official transcript does not list online courses?
Hello everyone, I'm wondering if I should rewrite the MCAT this summer or if I should apply with my current score and write it again next summer if I don't get in. Any advice or new information you could provide is much appreciated! Here is some quick information about my application: ECs: I would say fairly strong GPA: ~3.85 MCAT: Wrote it three times, with final score being PS 11 VR 10 BS 12 Total 33 My reasons for rewriting: I'm mainly considering rewriting due to my Verbal score. I feel like it will be really hard for me to get an interview from Mac with a 10 in VR. 10 in VR also means I can't apply to Western. So by not writing, I'm automatically removing two Ontario schools. My reasons for not rewriting: I've already written the MCAT three times, I don't know how writing this test 4 times will look on my application (especially because I'm also planning to apply to US schools). Secondly, I'll have to write the new form of the MCAT and I have never taken any psychology or social science courses in my undergrad, so am not too confident about this section (as of now). Once again, any advice would be much appreciated!
