  1. Hello! I'm a new member here I figured I'll just write out my progression/journey so I can get some help and stay accountable. Year 1 of Undergrad (2015-2016,2017): I applied to U of T 4 years ago with the intention of becoming a doctor. My first year of undergrad went pretty horrible. I finished the first semester with a 2.18 sessional GPA, during the second semester I had a pretty bad mental breakdown and severe depression. I wasn't failing any courses I was probably in the 60s range, but for some reason I was just so done with life and one day I dropped all my courses. It took a few m

  2. J’avais posé la question à UdeM il y a quelques années et ils m’ont jamais donné de réponse claire et directe....ce que j’en ai retiré c’est qu’il y a une conversion qui se fait mais que ce n’est pas une règle de trois. On ne peut pas te dire quelle CRU tu vas avoir, ça dépend de beaucoup de données auxquelles on n’a pas accès. Par contre, t’as un bon GPA dans un programme reconnu comme étant difficile donc tu devrais être en bonne position. Bonne chance.

  6. Oui c'est possible d'avoir de bonne notes sans se "tuer" à étudier mais reste que pour avoir de bonnes notes, tu vas devoir quand mm étudier sachant que les cours sont quand même chargés (ya 1-2 cours en particulier ou l'étude est quand même intense en premiere session); toutefois, ça depend aussi de ta capacité à retenir la matière !! C'est possible d'avoir une vie en parallèle et de sortir avec ses amis etc ahahaha faut juste être organisé Ensuite, moi personnellement j'ai deteste nutrition de tout mon coeur looooool ( j'ai vrm aimé les personnes que j'ai rencontré la bas parcontre)- c'

    Bad GPA in Second Year

    Thank you so much for replying and for your input. I guess I shouldn't let it affect me that much. I just had a bad first year, so I was truly counting on my second, third, and fourth years to bring my GPA up. I also have friends who got 90s on all of those courses which is why I was upset, but I guess it makes sense since they didn't do any other volunteering. I will cut down on my volunteering hours next year hopefully. I hope you get interviews to the schools you want.

  10. I have never gotten around to writing my “story” but if you read my very old posts you will probably piece it together. I am in my last six months of residency (as a subspecialist) of my life and am thrilled that I stuck things out for 5 (non consecutive) application cycles. I am going to do with my life what I literally have always wanted to do—provide medical and psychiatric care for people with developmental disabilities and mental health across the lifespan—I just didn’t know it was a thing when I was very young. I just knew by having and living with a sibling with significant sp

  12. I had always planned to leave my story in this thread.... and I finally have the time to write it. So fast forward through all the indecision and partying..... and we end up at the end of third year with a GPA, hovering around 3.0... my best year a 3.6, and I've decided I want to do medicine. The plan.... get into Western by rocking 4th year, and being conditionally accepted 5th year. The first step is to write the MCAT, however, I did not take physics, chemistry or organic in University. Study like a nut all summer trying to learn the subject from prep books.... and I come out with an
