  1. A couple of points I’d like to comment on: Unless I missed something, I’m pretty sure your McGill-GPA would not be 3.33. This looks like it was obtained with a rule of 3, that’s not how the conversion is done. Given you said you don’t have any A+, your McGill-GPA should be the same as your UdeM one, 3.57. You can actually fill out the McGill academic workbook right now to see for yourself (or just make an excel sheet yourself to simulate their workbook by listing all your course grades and calculate your GPA whilst taking into account credit weight for each course and replacing
  2. Just a heads up about 2 upcoming online information sessions hosted by McGill med admissions staff relevant to applicants: October 1: Reapplicant Information Session October 7: Info session for University Level Black Applicants More info here: https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/events
  3. Interesting situation you got there, I’m assuming you’re too early in the PharmD to have it set as the basis of admission degree? I strongly suggest you email the admissions office as this is a question which I think they’ll be willing to give fairly straightforward answers to… FWIW, from my reading of the Overall Academic Context description, I don’t think the PharmD counts as post-bachelor academics (this one I’m pretty sure of). I’m kinda on the fence regarding the professional degree bonus issue…obviously PharmD is a professional degree but because it won’t be your basis of admis
  4. Agreed with what Vons said, to give you some idea here’s a bit of my experience as a grad student applicant. In the 2017 and 2018 application cycles, I ranked inside top 270 for the academic component with an undergrad gpa of 3.68. Given my decent academic ranking relative to my gpa, there’s no doubt I received a good chunk of the points in academic context (10% of the 70%) because I fulfilled at least 1 or 2 of their listed criteria: -did grad studies -took progressively harder courses during undergrad -it wasn’t a professional degree though, so no pts there Notes:
  5. No problem! Well the wording about their selection process on their website in previous years used to be that academic evaluations were performed for all applicants, and then following that only those who had competitive scores for that had their CASPer and CV reviewed. "Based on the academic evaluation, only competitive applications proceed to a review of the non-academic assessment (CASper Score and CV). The non-academic assessment is carried out for approximately 4 to 6 times the number of candidates we intend to interview. For example, if we intend to interview 50 people in a par
  6. Got the rankings this week, well technically I only got one rank, because I couldn’t even get past the “File Review” part and have the CV reviewed lol. The selection process slightly changed this year and I vaguely recall some forum posts earlier in the year discussing this modification but I didn’t think much of it at the time…oh boy I should have lol. Here’s a screenshot of the important part of the document https://imgur.com/a/oP0oTpH And below that part, it gives my rank out of 1035 (I ranked poorly, 900ish out the 1035). A couple of thoughts: -Is the File Review
  7. Damn that's a tough situation...interesting background you got though This won't be consolation, but for what it's worth: every cohort seems to have a handful of people >30 y.o. , there are some fellow older applicants out here ( * if * I was to be accepted in the next cycle, I'd be 39 when starting residency lmao) Best of luck man
  8. Wow quite a few notable changes to the pre-reqs over the last 2 years... Can't find the January deadline date on the page for pre-reqs anymore...seems like the May 30 grade submission date is for everyone. Which I guess is reflective of the change to not using pre-reqs as part of the final rankings. In past cycles, they would have needed the grades for the pre-reqs a bit earlier (like in Jan) to rank candidates post-MMI, now that it's all relying on the MMI, I guess they technically don't need the grades before giving out offers. I suppose the final offers (even for the offers to the unive

  10. Very similar recent thread: Copy pasting my reply there to here: Little note about the registration in 2 degrees at same at same university issue: I've asked in previous years about this to admissions and current McGill med students because I was looking to apply during my PhD but was wondering if I would be forced to defer a year in case I was accepted (I wanted to complete the PhD but I also wanted to start med training asap). When I asked admissions officers, I got inconsistent answers depending on who I asked lol but someone did end up telling me that it was possible to fin

This was also confirmed when I asked stude
