Introducing MDbuddy! The first ever free GPA/wGPA Canadian Medical School Calculator!

Recommended Posts

Hello I've been working on an app/webapp this past year. Basically it calculates your GPA and wGPA. This is most useful for those who are thinking of applying to med school in the future and are unsure where they stand!

 

IT IS A 100% FREE/AD FREE/ EMAIL FREE SERVICE!

 

What is MD Buddy? MD Buddy is a webapp designed to aid Canadian students on their journey to become M.Ds!

 

Some of the features provided by MD buddy include:  

  • Provides/displays its results in both chart and graph form, to provide users with a visual representation of where they stand, compared to each school.
  • Sore grades for easier access in the future!

 

Currently the app is in beta, so please provide feedback so I can get everything fixed. If there are also some small features you would like to see added, message me and I will see what I can do!

So far the app is only for android, because apparently you need an apple product to code IOS, and I don't own an iMacPro or something.

Google playstore: App link 

Please provide your constructive/positive feedback in the appstore, thanks!.

Here's the app in action1.thumb.PNG.23a9e20452a818bd23f30c7bc19e6890.PNG2.thumb.PNG.1f56fe3214700bce4df50e3c4969ddb2.PNG

i cant seem to get it to work... what values are being put in for the GPA? example uottawa would i put in 'A-' '8' or '3.7' value i've tried all 3. the numerical values gave me a gpa of 0 and alpha values gave me wrong GPA results

also another possible feature to consider is the addiction of summer courses and considering them in calculations for those that add summer credits in gpa vs those that don't

For Ottawa specifically, you put in your LETTER GRADE {A+, A, A-, B+, B.....,F}. 

You DO NOT need to type in the GPA as that's what the program does for you! Also do not add spaces or quotation marks to the letters.

If you are having bugs with the website in general go back to the main page and start over, that usually fixes things (sometimes the server doesn't send data, something I don't have control over).

 

As for the fact that alpha values give wrong results. I checked the code, and I don't see the problem. I used data from OSMAS .

But hey I could be wrong, so can you please try again and submit screenshots or submit an email to me? Please let me know as I want to get to the bottom of this soon.

 

Finally for that new feature, I like the idea so I will look into it. Do you know which Med-schools count summer courses, because I hear most don't. Thanks :)

UBC does, but not for the year you're applying in -> ie: summer courses from may-aug 2018 will not count for GPA calculations for 2018/19 cycle, but will for 2019/20 cycle.

I'm not sure about other schools.
