  1. I was really stupid for not doing physiology so they can count the 4 recommended courses instead... I got 4.0 in the other 3 recommended courses, but sadly missing physiology. I emailed them and they said they would only use the recommended courses instead of the 7 basic sciences IF you completed all 4 of them. So I screwed up one of the first-year physics. My 7 basic science pre-req GPA is 3.95. Is this competitive? I was under the impression that everybody has 4.0 for these basic sciences?? I'm going a bit crazy regretting not having taken physiology... I didn't know about this pol
  2. Do you guys think Accounting (B.Com) is a professional program?
  3. Hi guys,, Has anyone paid to get their med application reviewed? Especially the personal narrative/statements? What are some good ones?
  4. The dilemma for me is that I don't have much clue about whether being an accountant is what I like doing, not more about being a doctor... So I'm asking myself, which route will I be less likely to have regrets or be disappointed...
  5. So are you saying that even if I become a doctor for the money, I would not be disappointed?
  6. I have read this publication a couple of years ago, I'm kind of taking these data with a grain of salt because they are published by the CPA organizations in order to attract students. I am uncertain as to how "real" these numbers are, but from what I gather I think you have to be one of the best to earn that type of salary (300k) as a CA (or CPA now), whereas as a doctor you can be reasonably certain that 200-300k (or above depending on specialties) is the norm, even if you are not the best of the best...
  7. I think if both worlds will yield a salary of 100k, I wouldn't want to become a doctor unless the path to become one is significantly easier. And I think I might rather earn 100k as a banker than earning less than 100k as a doctor, but then, this is far from the reality (the opposite?) Of course doctors earn a lot more, because they work for longer hours, right? My concern is that if money was my aim going into medicine, will I be disappointed?
  8. I'm still considering medicine after undergrad, even though I will be starting an internship at an accounting firm next summer (summer after my 3rd year), which should lead me to a full-time position after I graduate. I know that I want a comfortable (maybe more than what the word means literally) style of living, 100k is a minimum to me. So I know what if I do go into medicine, it is about the money. However, I value time with my family (in China), and also my future family (spouse & kids). So I'm concerned that I won't be happy with all the money because I will have no time for my f
  9. Hey thanks! I have decided to not write the MCAT this summer, I don't feel mentally ready to commit (not only to the rigorous study routine and the amount of content, but maybe just medicine in general). I will be busy with internship the summer after 3rd year, so if I don't get into McGill on the first try, and I would have to write the MCAT after I finish undergrad, and apply to Ontario an application cycle later... when I'm ready to commit? Really hoping that I'm making the right decision.
  10. I'm urgently trying to transfer my MCAT prep course http://www.princeton...ourse#!inperson I'm in Montreal and I already have the books they mailed to me. You could choose any start date. If you would like to take it somewhere else in Canada, that is fine too, I can mail you the books. Message me for more details! Sorry for advertising here. Kinda desperate..

  12. Hi guys, I finished my second year at McGill and was planning on studying and writing the MCAT this summer, until it hit me today... Should I even spend so much time and effort to do the MCAT if I have a good enough chance for McGill Med? So the real question is, do I have a good enough chance for McGill Med? I'm an in-province student, my cGPA is currently 3.96, I would expect it to stay the same after my 3rd year, and it will certainly drop the 4th year because I'm doing some courses that are impossible to get A then. - I am a business major, with a minor in science, and my

  14. Thanks for your answer! I was hoping for some direct experience like this lol. And the porn thing, it's so off topic...
