  1. As a 4th year UBC Med student, I don’t think there is any chance that this will actually happen for one reason: it makes no sense. It would take minimum 8-10 years to produce a single independent doctor if they started developing a new medical school today, compared to 2 years if they increased the number of residency seats and accepted more highly qualified IMGs. Secondly, there are barely enough residencies for current graduates and believe me, you don’t want to be >100k in debt in 4th year and scared you won’t match. Thirdly, UBC is already poised to fill the need for incr

  2. Mon frère l'avait pris et ça dépend du prof, mais c'est essentiellement du par coeur. T'apprends les calculs et comment on est arrivé aux résultats et il te demande de reproduire ça à l'exam. Donc oui, c'est basé sur des calculs/théorèmes.

  4. Hey! I am a first year at Queen’s OT & had zero shadowing experience before applying! However I had experience working with both children & adults with disabilities through work, school, & volunteer positions. I think direct shadowing experience is of course helpful, but definitely not a requirement. Hope that helps, good luck!

    Urgent- Admission 2021

    Ok so juste pour rectifier tu n’as pas besoin d’avoir complété un bac avant de rentrer en médecine à Sherbrooke (ni à Laval), il suffit seulement d’avoir 60 crédits au moment de l’application (ce qui revient au même si tu fais un bac traditionnel full time anyways, mais ça ouvre aussi la possibilité de faire un bac/doc qui dure plus que 3 ans (ex: physio/ergo/pharm/etc.) et de quand même rentrer en cours de bac après ta 3e année)!

  6. It depends what a good lifestyle means to you. A full time pathologist will generally make less money than a full time radiologist. But, as a pathologist, my work hours are much more regular/reasonable compared to my friends who are radiologists (though i can't speak to how radiologist work varies between different practice settings).

  8. I think I spent a lot less time than the average person - I had a full time job, so I studied evenings and weekends for 10 straight weeks. I had taken a biochemistry course just before that though, so thankfully I didn’t have to spend quite as much time on that topic. And I had an arts background, so I didn’t do I much CARs prep. I got a 514 - 126/129/129/130 For efficiency, I just worked through the Kaplan books (about 1 a week) and then I did a full length practice exam roughly every other weekend, and tried to target my studying the following week to reviewing the topics for questi

  9. I agree with Kaplan + Khan. That's what I used and found those resources very effective. I would also suggest doing every practice test you can get your hands on! I started preparing in April for my test in August last year, because I was doing research full time and had very limited opportunities to study!

  10. Thank you SO much for taking the time to reply to my post! I think I misunderstood Western's website and believed that I wouldn't be able to apply until after I was done. I'm feeling so much better about potentially saving a year of my life before starting med school (ofc if I receive an acceptance). I have a year that is higher than a 3.7 (not my last year of the first degree, but I believe Western takes best two years), so if I can maintain a 4.0 this year then maybe I actually have a shot! I'm e-mailing Western now to confirm if this is how they would calculate my GPA. Cheers &am

  11. McGill just knocks any A+s down to As (4.0) and then calculates your cGPA based on that. If you want to confirm how they do it for your school you can download the Academic Workbook Guide here and there's a table in the appendix explaining it all.

  12. I'm not sure this is the right place to be posting. Most of us are premeds trying to get into medical school.

  13. Salut! La CRU est une conversion du GPA en fonction de ta moyenne et de l'indice de force de discipline du programme d'étude qui correspond au tien (entre autres). Par conséquent, il faut que tu saches à quoi ton programme d'étude en Ontario est équivalent dans les universités francophones québécoises. Ensuite, il faut convertir ton GPA ontarien en moyenne sur 4,3 (ou 4,33 pour uLaval). Ensuite, tu peux estimer ta CRU grâce à la table des étalons de uLaval (https://www.ulaval.ca/sites/default/files/admission/table-des-etalons.pdf). Mais attention! Chaque université francophone a son propr

  15. Would it be safe to assume that one has been rejected if they didn't get an interview invite yesterday?
