  1. Well, they can't fail the entire class. So it's like running from a hungry grizzly. Just don't be near the end of the pack. /not comforting but true.

  2. As a 3rd year student at Western, I found that the lectures weren't always good for my own learning (e.g., some lecturers just read off the slides). Whenever that was the case, I'd be engaging in my own learning on my computer instead (e.g., reading up on the relevant guidelines, making my own notes, doing ILs.) Some of my classmates decided to skip class altogether because they were able to go through the VODs more efficiently than going to lecture. You may want to figure out what works best for you. Some of these ILs may be newly made for your curriculum. If you find that they are not

  3. Don't quote me on this but I faintly remember reading they will read the supplementary application and use that as a replacement for ABS on OMSAS. So I would write it like they have no access to ABS.

  5. I apologize, by skimming I meant that I look at the class notes and if I see it is material I am familiar with (i.e. histology, from undergraduate), I don't spend as much time making notes, and just follow along to make sure I recognized everything. If it is material that I am unfamiliar with I make extensive notes, flash cards, and look things up if necessary. They're not going to ask us to quote specific statements from the recordings. If this doesn't work for you that's totally cool, I was just trying to make a suggestion based on what I do.

  6. Honestly, I wouldn't even consider specialization until I went to dental school and decided. I'm guessing a combo between gpa, references, stellar soft skills and work ethic that faculty recognizes. But I'm sure there's some political aspect too lmao Might as well apply and just see what happens. Maybe youll get the seat.

    So you want to help people first who go around the legal immigration system and are (quite literally) jumping the line? How is that fair to people like my parents who go to the embassy, fill out paperwork and follow the process? There are even asylum seekers in Lebanon who want protection and are fleeing violence but cannot afford to take a flight to the US and cross the border on foot. Is it fair that these people cannot walk over facing similar instability? In the end, it should be a fair system for everybody and people shouldn't be allowed to cue-jump and stay in hotels at the taxpayers exp

    You can find more information on that page! https://mcgill.ca/medadmissions/prospective/selection-process/academic-evaluation It doesn't say for the the upward trend, I just heard on this forum that they take that a bit into consideration, but it seems like something they would evaluate in the "non-GPA" aspect of the academic component (based on their own description). As I said, they are not crystal clear on that part, but it seems it would be to your advantage, at least for the graduate studies
