  3. Personnellement, j'ai l'impression qu'elle sera plus basse, étant donné que la première session est historiquement basse en général, parce que période d'adaptation, transition du secondaire au cégep, nouvelle ville pour certaines personnes, etc. Quant à la 3e session, elle est historiquement plus forte, mais le contexte actuel fait en sorte que ce ne sont vraiment pas des conditions idéales pour étudier, donc, à mon avis, elle serait plus basse qu'habituellement aussi. Mais tout ça, ça concerne tout le monde, à moins d'être un-e champion-ne de la résilience et de passer à travers le contexte a

  4. The other thing to consider if you are planning to change your name as part of your transition, is that once you begin practicing under a particular name, it tends to follow you. For example, you start accumulating documents and certifications with your dead name on them (diploma, MCC, etc), and Colleges will sometimes ask about and display former names on your public profile (CPSO does display any former names you’ve had since you started practicing). Hospitals and clinics may also ask for former names as do police record checks. So if your eventual hope is to be totally under the radar prof

  5. Probably a combination of different life history, different values around money, and different personality. I certainly didn't grow up in poverty myself (though my father has told me he didn't have much growing up), but we sure weren't rich, and if we wanted something as kids we were mostly expected to save for it, and it was very clear that large purchases (more than 50-100 dollars) were a Big Deal to be thought about carefully and made infrequently, especially if they were purely for enjoyment. I didn't grow up having the nicest or newest anything, and I still mostly don't, nor do I partic

    L'âge, ce n'est qu'un chiffe. Dans quelques années, tu auras 37 ans de toute façon (ou 36, parce que 2020 n'existe pas #déni). Que préfères-tu accomplir d'ici là?

    l'année où j'ai débuté en physiothérapie, à 35 ans, j'ai aussi été accepté en médecine (oui, je sais, c'est rare, mais je me passionne beaucoup plus pour la physio, ça vient avec l'âge et l'expérience, on sait ce qu'on veut). Les facultés ne discriminent pas, donc vas-y fort!!

  10. I grew up middle class. We never went without but we didn't buy anything full price if we could get it on sale. That said, we often would save so we can get nicer things when we wanted it. I have always loved couponing, getting things on sale, saving money...child of immigrants No debt from undergrad or master's, but lots from half of another bachelors, med school, and then residency and getting married (husband is also a student who is non-med). I like seeing my debt go down. I don't like spending more than I have to...but I'll go for a guilty pleasure (and feel slightly g

    You're definitely not too old for medicine and you have a great plan! The fact that you've never been to CEGEP before is a huge advantage - most spots in Quebec are for CEGEP students so it's easier to get admitted from CEGEP. It's more common in other parts of Canada for older people to go into medicine, but it sill happens sometimes in Quebec. Getting a great R score should be your top priority and I'd suggest doing everything you can to prepare for your academic entry into CEGEP. Your maturity and professional experience should work to your advantage and use these to take your stu

    Salut! J'ai fait droit à l'UdeM mais oui ils vont t'accorder une CRU plus élevée. Pour te donner une idée, je connais quelqu'un en droit qui a eu 33 de CRU avec 3.3 de GPA. J'ai été admise directement avec 3.7 cette année en med à l'UdeM. N'hésite pas à m'envoyer un message si tu as d'autres questions!

    Aussi, les années précédentes le derniers admis avait toujours 22, 23, max 24 de CRC, donc même si 25 c'est pas compétitif, c'est suffisant selon moi! C'est les données après la liste d'attente bien-sur!

    Honnêtement essaye d'aller à l'UQAM t'as même pas idée comment KIN c'est bon comme tremplin. Si t'es un minimum sérieux tu px avoir facilement 4,10. Si t'es sérieux ET efficace c +4,20. je suis pas certains mais (d'après des amis qui avaient moins de 25 au cegep et qui sont rentré en kin UQAM) le 25 c'est pour une admission directe sans questions. Mais si t'as moins que 25 ca va être selon le nombre de place. Par exemple, si après que tout les +25CRC soit rentré il reste 30 place, les 30 plus proche de 25 obtiendront une offre d'admission.

  33. You NEED a LOR from your original PD saying you were a good resident and left for medical/family reasons and not performance/professionalism reasons. I know you said you can't get a recent letter but you NEED a recent letter(s) from someone who can say that you would still be a good resident. Hopefully you can reach out so someone from your nursing program, or look into doing shadowing/volunteering/research as much as you can with covid, perhaps reaching out to contacts from your medical school or residency to point you in the right direction locally. Hopefully you can also demonstrate yo

  34. I found it very fair- bio tripped me up on a couple questions and chem was straightforward. I also found RC to be on the slightly easier side (but I also had some background info on 2/3 articles so I may have just gotten lucky). I did find PAT challenging and I'm worried about that. Overall a fair exam though! edited to add: I was very surprised by how little application the bio section required; with the exception of 1-2 questions it was really "do you know this random fact or not"

    Bonjour ! Je pense que les autres ont tout à fait raison, il n'y a pas d'âge pour la médecine ! Je suis en première année de médecine et ma cohorte est extrêmement diversifiée en terme d'âges. Les gens sont tous différents, ont des parcours différents, mais au final, on a tous le même but ultime d'être médecin alors ça nous rapproche beaucoup et personne n'est laissé de côté. Je trouve que c'est ce qui est beau de la médecine !

  37. Je vais essayer de répondre à tes questions du mieux que je peux!:) 1- Selon moi tu ne perds rien à t'essayer! En opto ton casper vaut 40% alors si tu as un score de fou, ça pourrait être possible! Mais considérant que ta cote du Cégep comptera encore pas mal, je crois que 3.9-4 va être serré... Mais tu ne perd rien à t'essayer on sait jamais!:) 2- Sincèrement essaie de viser au moins 4.15-4.2. Je sais que ça a l'air haut mais c'est faisable! Si tu as besoin de conseils ou quoi que ce soit hésite pas à m'écrire en privé:) Par contre, si tu finis le bac, je crois qu'un 4-4.1 pourrait

  43. Here, under academic criteria: https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/admissions/evaluation-criteria/ Overall academic average (OGPA): Will be based on all university transferable courses attempted with letter or percentage grades1 (excluding Term 2 of the 2019-2020 academic year (or equivalent term) courses and courses taken in the summer of the year of application2). In other words, they will take the average of all courses (undergrad+ grad) you’ve taken.

  44. I applied into OBGYN as a super late interest (like fell in love with it a couple weeks before CaRMS closed late interest) and applied in with an application that screamed psychiatry and/or family medicine... and I was interviewed. I wrote a strong personal letter talking about how I had fallen in love with this discipline I'd never even considered before and how my core OBGYN rotation happened right before CaRMs closed and that's where I discovered I really unexpectedly liked OBGYN. I hadn't done my surgical rotation at the time I applied and interviewed in Carms. So I had zero surgical skill

  45. Mise en contexte : Les critères de mon année d'admission en médecine était ceux-ci : 50% CASPer / 50% Notes scolaires. La cote minimale universitaire était de 32,389, la cote moyenne 34,216 et ma cote était de 32,810. J'ai été placé sur la liste d'attente en 20-ish position, ce qui m'a valu une offre d'admission dans la première vague. Vu la faiblesse de ma cote, il est logique de croire que j'ai bien réussi le CASPer. Il est également à noter que c’était mon 3e CASPer. Préparation : J'ai commencé par lire l’information sur le site examencasper.com. La FAQ est pertinente, ainsi que la sec

    Bad Grade

    B is NOT a bad grade. It's an average grade. It only means that, once in your life, you were average. It's totally fine & actually very normal! I got a couple of Bs during undergrad and still here I am. I did not justify myself and never thought that they would care about whether was my fault or not. I would have taken the blame if I was asked about it though. I wanna show that I am capable of accepting constructive criticism & improve, rather that be the person who always put the blame on external circumstances...

  48. L'option neuropsychologie de neuroscience cognitive ressemble effectivement beaucoup à psychologie. Le niveau de difficulté n'est pas très élevé, surtout si tu es bon en par coeur. L'avantage par rapport à psychologie, c'est qu'il donne une meilleure CRU (à l'udem, parce que dans les autres unis j'imagine qu'il serait comparé à psycho donc équivalent) Bref, si la psycho t'intéresse, mais que tu veux changer en med dent ou en pharmacie à l'udem, ça peut être un assez bon tremplin
