  1. Hi There, I have done some research for my-self in terms of GPA. I have a similar GPA to you, but consider these important facts. -Medical schools and provinces outside of Ontario do not use OMSAS. So, look at how each school calculates their GPA, it may be higher. -Some medical schools like Manitoba's medical school, drop a certain amount of courses, which can also improve your GPA. -Many schools only look at your last 2 or 3 years, so if you managed to do better in the last few year, then you may also have a higher GPA than you think. -Having a PhD in many school in Ontario and in Canad

  3. Hi Everyone, So, I have recently come to realize that becoming a physican is what I want to do. I did my undergrad at McMaster and completed a degree in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng), and now I am doing a thesis-based Master's in Biomedical Engineering at University of Toronto. Now, I realized that OMSAS does not evaluate grades the same way McMaster did, for example, it dosen't matter if you took a 4 credit or 5 credit course, the course is given the same weighting as a 3 unit course. This seems really unfair because the reason those courses were 4 or 5 unit courses was

The problem is that they ask you to input the credits, I called OMSAS and confirmed that they don't use the credits for any other reason, but to identify the length (half or full year) of course. They said this: A 3, 4, or 5, unit course is given a weighting of 1 course (half a semester), and a 6 or more credit course is given a weighting of 2 courses (2 full semesters). Thus, 3,4,5 credit courses are considered equivalent in the GPA calculation, sadly. And they don't seem to care about the s
