  2. Tout est dans le titre. Je suis préoccupée, car je faisais des doigts d'honneur à la caméra dans des élans de frustration lorsqu'une section changeais pendant que j'étais en train de taper mes derniers mots.

    Yeah but I have a lot more work to do to fix my mistakes so props to you dude. And yeah I know a couple people at Waterloo some hate it some love it - at least the co op makes you money right? And yeah for Mac and Ottawa super important basically for most med schools it’s GPA > MCAT > EC but for those schools they have cars weighing a lot to try to diversify their admissions and make sure the right kind of people are becoming doctors but best of luck to you! You got this! And if you took full course loads your eligible for wGPA for UofT and what not which will just make your gpa higher.

    Abandoning your current undergrad degree won't help you for medicine unless you truly don't want to finish it or you cannot achieve a high GPA in it. You need to nail 3rd and 4th year with +3.9x GPA. That can open up Queens and Western. A 5th year might help open up Ottawa wGPA & UofT wGPA and maybe help your cGPA enough for MAC. Don't think Masters yet. You need the undergrad GPA first to know if a Masters would be of any use for Med school applications. Research is not necessary for med school. EC's are required so think EC's first. Review Can-Meds. It wont be easy

  5. This happened to me as well, and others I know. I highly doubt they are going to even look at those links, and it is for sure not going to disqualify you. This is the first year they added a section like that, and I recall someone calling uOttawa about it and even they didn’t know that existed lol.

  6. iirc when you put in choices they all have to start on the same day. I didnt apply to mcgill but thats what it was like at all other schools i applied to.

    Ottawa doesn’t take MCAT, but they do use CASPer like Mac which is sort of like an online psych test lol.

  8. Hi! No I don’t think that’s what they are asking! I just went to London drugs (or Walmart or wherever takes passport photos) and have a passport like photo taken (I assumed no smiling) and they can email it to you and I just attached it to my confirmation email!

  10. I grew up in Toronto, lived in Montreal, now live in Edmonton. And visit Vancouver regularly and have stayed up to a month there at a time. The quick summary is Toronto's best strength is its diversity of people and what experiences they bring to the city. Its really a unique city because of this that you will not find in most cities in the world. The night life is good, and because everybody is always working you can do anything at almost any time. Being eastern seaboard you are also close to a lot of other Canadian and US cities. The downside is Torontonians do not realize there is more

  11. Because, orgo/biochem/physics are not important for medical school. Medical schools will either a) re-teach you everything they want you to know or b) expect you to be self-directed and catch up on what you don't know in your own time. Medical schools are looking for hard-working, motivated, self-directed, and most important personable students. The material can always be taught to anyone. It's not difficult.

  12. I think it was probably your reference letter and possibly your CARS score (although do not rewrite that MCAT is amazing). If your reference was a template... it would have not come across well. Having some research is nice but its not important. Truth be told though, almost every resident will have to do some sort of research project, so having something even if it is in the works will check that research box off. If you have a year off, I recommend doing research and work hard at it. You don't have to like it, just grin and bear it. That way, you could use a reference letter from
