  1. C’est pas une raison pour abandonner. J’ai 27 ans et je commence ma première année. La moyenne canadienne des gens en médecine c’est 24 ans et leur nombre de tentatives c’est 3 fois en moyenne. Y’a bcp de cegepiens dans ma classe, mais y’a aussi du monde avec doc, post-doc, des mères de famille avec 30,35 d’âge. IMO tu seras pas plus heureux avec un plan B, C ou Z tu vas toujours rester avec le what if dans ta tête. Moi j’irais all in. Même si t’es limite pour les entrevues t’as encore la possibilité d’augmenter ta cote d’ici la fin de ton bac. Oublie l’idée de faire des cours par i

  2. Sherbrooke is about 90% PBL with some rare lectures and I have to say that I love it. Being faced with a "patient" helps you get your thinking skills early on and even though you don't have the precise knowledge when it comes to treatments, diagnostics, investigations, etc., you still get the same reflexes such as thinking about possible causes (differential diagnostics) which allows you to think about ways to differentiate these causes (investigations) and then ways to act on these causes (treatments). Afterwards, reading the textbooks is a lot less dry as you can make link and think back abo

  3. Yes, I agree! Like in my school, we don't have enough pre-requisite knowledge to answer the questions, so it's basically just googling answers to specific questions and splitting up the questions which doesn't seem to be effective imo.

  4. I personally really like it so far. I definitely feel like by the end of the last session (we have two per week on the same topic), I walk away feeling like I fully understand and know the topic quite well. You definitely need to put the work in beforehand to have the best experience, though, which for me entails doing research and making notes on the objectives for the session. Our tutors so far have been great with filling in any information we’re unsure of, and keeping the discussion on the right track/stimulating appropriate discussion. I actually wish we had more CBL and fewer lectures in

  5. It can be a great tool for reinforcing information, building on it, and applying it to real-world situations. Unfortunately, like any tool, it can be misused, and often is. Case-based learning requires an established baseline of knowledge among participants (which is often lacking) as well as access to resources (or preceptors) to help fill in any gaps in knowledge or to provide missing context (which is often lacking). Properly designed and utilized case-based learning can be very effective, but, like trying to put in a screw by using a hammer, it can't be used in all situations like many sch

    If I remember correctly Mac only looks at your cumulative GPA, so it shouldn't matter. As long as you have a competitive GPA, CARS score on your MCAT and do well on the CASPer test, that's all that matters. There isn't some sort of subjective evaluation of courseload. Please refer to their admissions website or email them directly if you are seeking confirmation.

  9. To be honest the difference for me is timing - there is so much I need to accomplish. I have not even gained entry into medical school yet - the vision and the effort are all but meaningless to me if the end goal is not realized. A significant other will almost invariably have unrealized aspirations of his/her own, and as a junior or a senior in undergrad, the pressure to find someone does not supersede the pressure to realize one's perceived potential. Once (if) I'm a medical student, my future is more or less determined; sure, things become more labour intensive. I am not trying to say that
