  1. A lot of others waiting guys, don't worry.
  2. Condition is to complete whatever degree you were doing and/or get your immunizations done. You don't need to maintain similar grades btw.
  3. Minerva update.. I remember, last year, emails only came through at night!
  4. It's possible that your application could be considered because McGill takes letters of extenuating circumstances and takes them seriously. Contact them and they might ask you to attach one to your application (it's done in the minerva part of the application). It does require some sort of "proof" though. But then again, Mcgill AED would be the best to answer this question! Good luck
  5. 2 things in response to finalshowtime's first post: 1. McGill's probation should not impact your decision.... at all. It's only making things better. 2. We get 18 months of preclinical and the rest is clinical. Plus we get early exposure to the clinic (as early as second week of classes) through the longitudinal family med course and possibly the physicianship course. I don't see how that's less than other schools. I can't comment on med-p because I haven't done it, but MED-P students in M1 seem to be lost about ¾ of the time. From what I hear, UdeM's prep year is very good.. but th
  6. My two cents: if you're IP, your highest chances are McGill and the french universities. 3.75 or 3.8 won't make much of a difference for McGill, it's all about how you present yourself through your application (Transcript, CV, personal statement). 3.75 or 3.8 also will not make much a difference for the french ones, but will make more of a difference than McGill, because they will convert your GPA to a score depending on your program's difficulty. No matter how you slice it, 3.75 or 3.8 is on the lower end for ANAT, so you'll end up with a lower score than a 3.75 in nutrition, for example. (so
  7. You're a pretty solid candidate. As the person above stated, strong GPA is a good place to start but it's all about the CV + personal statement when it comes to McGill. Mainly because everyone applying will have a solid GPA, so the rest is your opportunity to shine. Research is not essential, I applied without any research on my CV and made it just fine. It's only worth it if you want to go to McGill. Best of luck!
  8. Orientation starts next week, by then they will find out if anyone does not show up. That will be your best chance. Keep your phone on, check your minerva and check your email regularly from the 25th to the 31st. I don't know how they contact people when it is such short notice. You never know. Wish you the best!
  9. I agree with sleeping_sickness and oshaku. I've lived around the guy concordia area for the past 5 years and it's the absolute best. The convenience is off the charts. I don't believe there is one thing missing in this area. I'd like to add that he 144 route begins on Tupper and Atwater. That bus stops in front of stewart bio, which is linked in multiple ways to McMed. Having had every morning class in the last 2 years of my undergrad atop that crappy hill, I find this the best way to get to McIntyre. The 144 also stops right in front of the Molson Stadium/McGill fitness centre. I live on Fort
  10. Quelqu'un de neuro qui a appliqué en med à UdeM m'avait dit qu'il fallait refaire l'année préparatoire après son bac. Vérifie cette information avant d'aller en neuro!
  11. I did mine at a YMCA. Check them out. Good luck!
  12. Yes, they did hold spots and kept entry odds the same. They released a second wave of offers in early May for IP university applicants that interviewed in April and that were on the waitlist from Feb interviews.
  13. Je pense pas que cette information t'aidera. J'ai désister de UdeM après l'entrevue parce que j'ai été admis a McGill. J'étais en pharmaco à McGill et j'avais un GPA de 3.81/4.
  14. ^^ Exactement ce que j'ai fait l'an passé (j'ai reçu un offre en pharmacie) et maintenant je suis admis en med. Je voulais pas faire un back up sans avoir pris toutes mes chances pour médecine.
  15. Should be today or early next week since approval for graduation was just uploaded onto minerva.
  16. https://www.afmc.ca/pdf/ADMISSION_REQUIREMENTS_EN.pdf Statistics for McGill are on page 25. It shows how many people rejected an offer/deferred a year. I don't know if they replace deferrals with people from the waitlist, not sure how that would work. That should give you guys an idea of waitlist movement.. The downside is that this gives no information on how each category's waitlist moved.
  17. You'd be a very solid candidate for an interview. It's all about how you present yourself through your application. Good Luck.
  18. The conversion factors in the difficulty of your program as well. I don't have an idea how they do that, but my 3.8 got converted to a 3.88. Utter BS.
  19. Try the YMCA, they have courses there.
