  1. Thank you very much for your input. I think I'll do Physiology as my degree. My parents said I can always just minor in Biochemistry.
  2. Thanks for your quick responses. I am leaning towards physiology too after talking to my parents just now as well.
  3. Hello premed101, I am a student from McMaster University who has yet to declare a major. I have narrowed it down to two subjects, Physiology and Biochemistry, and of course, as with many other students, the goal is medicine. I love anatomy and all the physiological processes, but biochemistry is also high up there in my favourite subjects. I did well in my chemistry and biology courses in 1st year. I know both prepare you good for medical school, but would anyone like to offer any advice as to which major I should study? Thank you for your time.
  4. Hello there. I am soon to be an undergraduate program who wants to pursue a career in medicine, but I have been looking for alternatives, such as dentistry. I have been looking on many websites describing the requirements and perquisites of admission into dental school. However, I don't find any non-academic requirements such as references or extracurricular actives, with the exception of the DAT. Would anyone know anything about the non-academic requirements or if it is even required? Thanks.
  5. Thank you guys for your responses above. I am totally convinced that I will just get the macbook air and get the iPad later on.
  6. I will be going to McGill to do Anatomy and Cellular Biology (Hons. BSc). This may sound like an idiotic question, but I am just trying to figure out whether or not I should buy an iPad Pro with the Pencil and Smart Keyboard OR get a MacBook Air. For general science programs, which one is more useful or better?
  7. Thank you for your reply. I really do not want to take physics as I have a personal problem with the sole teacher that teaches the grade 12 physics course. Again, thank you for your reply.
  8. Hello everyone, As part of the McMaster Life Science program, students have to take physics for at least one semester. I am just wondering if anyone has taken the Physics 1A03, Introductory Physics, course at McMaster. I want to know if that course is harder if one does not take Physics 12 (SPH4U or equivalent) in their senior year in high school. The prerequisite for that course is not physics, but grade 12 calculus or equivalent. Is this course geared for those who did not take physics in high school? Thank you for your time.
  9. Hello there, Would a university-level introductory physics be enough for medical school or the MCAT, such as McMaster's PHYSICS 1A03? Do I need to take higher level physics in order to do good on the MCAT or qualify for medical school? Thanks.
  10. Thank you for your various replies above guys. I guess I will do 5 courses per semester. I strongly believe I will be able to handle it haha
  11. At McGill university, I have heard it is not advisable to do 5 courses in one semester, which totals to 10 courses per year. Is this true? I know it is a bit early for me to start planning out courses, considering I'm only in grade 12, but it helps escape my boredom. I have read that doing 5 courses will mentally and physically tire you out due to the workload. Any feedback would be great!
  12. @doc5 Thank you very much for your reply. Out of curiousity, what bachelor's degree is out there that will provide me with a career if I don't get accepted into medicine?
  13. Yes, I have taken into account after what I do after I graduate from this program. If I was refused from medicine, I would then go and get a Master's Degree and then reapply then. If still not accepted into any medical school, I would move to applying to other schools such as chiropractic, optometry, nursing, pharmacy, and other schools out there. I believe that you cannot do much with a life science degree, as they are just what my teacher describes them as, "stepping stones". You must do something after it to improve your employability, such as professional or graduate school, or teache
  14. Thank you guys for taking the time to give me such detailed posts. If I do get accepted into McGill University, I will definitely do Anatomy and Cellular Biology for my Honours Bachelors degree, due to the interesting descriptions of the course and the various opinions I have been hearing about this program.
  15. Hello everyone here at premed101. I am a grade 12 student who is looking to apply for my undergraduate school very soon. Like most of people on this forum, I am looking to apply for medical school, once I graduate my bachelors. One of the various programs I am applying for is McGill's Anatomy and Cellular Biology due to strong personal interest. Does anyone, especially those who had done this program, have any thoughts (program difficulty, quality of education and professor, admission, etc.) whatsoever on this?
