  1. I think the cost of applying is my biggest concern. For example, the CASPer test costs $40 plus $10 for each school you send your results. For people in the U.S its only $10 and $10 to send it to each school and they also have the AAMC fee assistance program.
  2. I definitely agree with you. If they really cared about people from lower income backgrounds they would have given advance notice for a change in the application process. Many schools in U.S are still considering the old MCAT as long as its not older than 3 years. Also, the MCAT it self costs some 400 odd dollars. If schools really cared they would have pressured AAMC to lower their fees for Canadian students and provide fee assistance programs just like they do in the U.S. Also, they should consider that not everyone can afford a $2000 prep course every time a requirement changes. I would a
  3. Hey! Thanks for the response! I'll keep this as an option... I'm planning on writing it late July/early August.
  4. Hello! I have a course and I'm looking to share it with someone. If you're interested please message me for the price. Thanks
  5. I wouldn't be surprised since they introduced casper and then the new GPA calculation.
  6. Thanks for the response. I'm actually in the same boat in terms of academics although my GPA might even be slightly lower than a 3.6 ( I really don’t want to calculate it at this point). I’ll most likely have to do a few more years of undergrad to boost that GPA as I don't have many EC's either.
  7. Hello, I am a non trad and I only have one medically related volunteering experience (Meal Assistance Volunteer at a Hospital).I'm not sure if I want to volunteer as a meal assistance volunteer as I am finding that I'm not learning much and its not worth my time. So any other suggestions would help. I have no community related activities, so I was wondering what counts as community related. Also, I'm currently in Halifax. Any help would be appreciated

  9. I'm currently a fourth year in neuroscience at DAL. I'm not sure if I should do a 5th year and try to apply to grad school or graduate this year and start a degree in nursing or health promotions before applying to Dal med. I know I will have to work harder and that even having the grades might not get me in, but I'm willing to try. Here are my stats: Grades based on OMSAS: 1st Year: 3.8 2nd Year: 3.58 3rd Year: 2.56 (failed course) I plan on writing the 2015 MCAT. ECs: 2 years of hospital volunteering, 1 year volunteer tutor, work during the year, leadership positi
