OP, my R score was nowhere close to yours in Cégep and I had no hope of entering med school at that stage. Moreover, I did not then have the requisite maturity. I matured during my undergrad studies. I became a straight A student in university. I became an independent learner, which skills I used to great advantage in medical school. Studying for my bachelors degree was an essential part of my development preparing me for medical school. With these 3 years, I never would be a physician today. I still entered medical school relatively young. More importantly, I accomplished my goal. I am now a third year resident in a competitive surgical specialty. You are in a marathon and there is no rush. I wish you the best of luck but do not lose hope if you don't make it from Cégep. 

I really needed to hear that thank you !

Which bachelor degree did you study for?

Si ça ne te dérange pas d'enlever McGill de tes choix, tu peux toujours faire ton cégep en 2 ans 1/2 (annuler des cours et faire des cours d'étés). C'est ce que j'ai fait pour augmenter ma cote R de 32.7 à 34.2 et je rentre la semaine prochaine en médecine à ULaval (J'avais aussi été convoqué aux entrevues de Sherbrooke et Montréal, alors ne t'inquiètes pas pour le parcours collégial non-traditionnel). Pour ma part, j'ai commencé à annuler des cours à partir de ma 3e session, donc j'étais au même stade que toi présentement. 


Bonne chance!
