  1. Updated with the newest MSAR. Note - if you didn't submit secondaries for American schools until now, better wait until next year. Cycle is underway.
  2. As @Meridian said, your GPA/MCAT is great. If your healthfield extracurricular is minimal, however, there is a very low chance of being accepted - US schools receive thousands of applicants with 200+ hours in clinical volunteering, shadowing, healthcare research, etc. You're also late as interviews have begun already. If you do want to apply to US, start clinical volunteering to gather that 200+ hours and apply next year.
  3. Too late - most likely, yes. It will put you at a significant disadvantage if your plan is to matriculate into American med school without having a gap year. True for your second point - some schools (ie. Harvard, Einstein) won't permit you to apply more than twice. Generally a reapplicant is frowned upon if not accompanied with significant improvement to the application.
  4. Thats incredible, congratulations!! Esp to such a low yield school like Georgetown! So happy for you!
  5. Most AMCAS conversion is grade-to-GPA, so if your university gives you A for 80%, that's 4.0. Double degree matters little in US - every course from every degree counts to calculate GPA.
  6. I got IIs from August to late December! Interviewed until January.
  7. Sounds pretty good. Try to get a lot more volunteering hours than what you have right now - I heard average for US students these days hover around 200hrs, and you'd probably want to exceed Americans in pretty much every criterion to get in. Tough process
  8. You're looking these up for fun right? Not to actually submit them today right? That'll be a massive massive waste of time money willpower and effort
  9. What's the definition of Low here? Keep in mind that even if a school's median MCAT may be low, as a Canadian you generally have to have higher stats than Americans to get in. Not to mention that these 'low-MCAT schools' usually receive tons of applications.
  10. If you graduate from a US-DO schools, you'll be an AMG - just with a different citizenship status. It's still much, much easier to get a US residency than with an MD from Ireland/Caribbean. So essentially yes, same chances. Here's a summary: Ultra-competitive fields (Ortho, Derm, etc) - USMD can match (w/ tons of research and etc). USDO will have a very, very hard time to match here. Essentially zero chance for Carib/Ireland MD. Regular fields (everything else) - both USMD and USDO can match well here. Still hard time for Carib/Ireland MD.
  11. Yeah. Ontario. They'll give out more for Ontario schools though.
