  1. J'etais dans la derniere vague le samedi et on n'avait pas de stations de repos...c'etait quand-meme interessant lol! Toute a passe si vite et c'etait un peu enervant, quand meme inquietant qu'on etait desavantager
  2. Non pas du tout, ils m'ont clairement dit via email qu'un A a McGill ne donne pas un A+ a Laval.
  3. Hey Vicodin, have you considered writing the MCAT as well as the TFI to give yourself the opportunity to apply to the rest of Canada as well as the French schools? I realize McGill may be your first choice, as it is to many, but at the end of the day you'll be an MD regardless of your school.
  4. Thanks Commons, I'll definitely be trying.
  5. Thanks a1b1 for the advice, Yes I have. Sherbrooke gives me a really mediocre Cote Z (~32.5), I asked and it's because they don't convert my McGill GPA (on the 4.0 scale) to 4.3 scale.

Will start working on the LORs asap
  8. Hi guys, After my recent refusal from McGill Med I'm looking at increasing the number of schools I apply to next year to try and maximize my chances. I know Canadians are at a disadvantage when it comes to applying to the US but I think I have competitive stats and a good CV so I figured I'll give it a shot. I haven't written the MCAT which I plan on doing ASAP, I'll start studying as soon as I finish my undergrad. I know that AMCAS apps open on June 1st and the earlier you apply the better, so I'll try and write my MCAT as early as I can to hopefully not kill my chances too much. Anyways
