  1. Salut, j'ai lue tes posts et je suis curieuse de savoir si tu es finalement rentrer en médecine à McGill ou pas!

  2. Hi, I'm a first year cegep student and I've been interested in medicine but also biomedical engineering (i'm not sure if this is offered as a minor of bioengineering or as a major (i think it's a phD?)?) I just would like a bit more guidance. Is it possible to do bioengineering and swap to medicine? (And is it recommended or better to take a safer program in uni to swap into med?) So far, my weighted average % is around 89.6 ,but it's still subject to change because of upcoming finals worth >40% (and I don't really know how much of a global R score this should give) Wher
  3. Rip moi... je rentre à JAC cette automne :') Aurais-tu des conseils pour la transition? (You can PM me if you'd like, I don't mean to steal the writer's post) Ou qu'est-ce que tu aurais fait différemment afin de diminuer l'impact?
  4. Hi, I suggest you talk with your counselor at your school about the factors you'd like to take into consideration. My counselor personally advised me to think about the cegep in which you'll be the most motivated to study in. You're going to have the opportunity to attend to open houses and even classes (student for a day) so it should give you a good idea of the environments you'd feel comfortable in. Also, don't worry too much about seeing the same faces over again in Vanier. A lot of people from my HS wanted to go to JAC. Some didn't get accepted after 2 rounds. Many are in differ
  5. Bonjour, Je serai bientôt cégepienne en sc et je suis intéressée aux opportunités de recherche (en dehors du cadre du cours). J'aimerais avoir de l'aide sur comment y arriver et sur les documents à préparer avant que j'y parle à un prof? C'est pour avoir de l'expérience de voir la recherche universitaire ; je suis consciente que mes services offertes seront minimes. Merci beaucoup Marble
  6. Thank you so much for these amazing advices. I will treasure these words. And I'm very glad that you've shared this with me. I really needed it.
  7. Jusqu'à présent, je ne suis pas assez familière avec les programmes de med dans chaque université au Qc. Honnêtement je pensais toujours McGill parce que je me sens très confortable de parler en anglais. Mes amis disent que McGill est difficile à prédire s’ils vont t’accepter ou non, alors depuis ce temps-ci je pense aux autres universités, mais je ne sais pas, il y a beaucoup de facteurs à considérer. Ce qui est important pour moi en ce moment est d'avoir ce qui est nécessaire pour être admis dans ce qui sera mon choix idéal.
  8. Ah thank you and absolutely, you have a point. When did you start getting ready for MMIs? They're a bit far from me right now (~1.5 years) but I do sometimes consider buying some books regarding MMIs already.
  9. Hmm, but how can I know if I'm going in the right direction with extra curriculars? Can I PM you about my experiences so far in bullet points if that's ok? Also, isn't McGill the only uni that takes a look at CVPNs? Not that CV in general doesn't matter, just wondering whether i should be building better my cv or put over 90% priority on grades for the next two years. Thank you very much for the advice
  10. I'm applying in 1 year and half though, that's soon enough for me. Maybe it's at a different time outside of Quebec province. And no need to worry about my youth, it's kind of you I still play video games and cuddle with my love.
  11. The chart of this post mentions that it's important to be highly distinguished in an activity that you like.. (ex: to not just play often piano but receive awards or be concert pianist) I don't know how to make me so in visual arts. It's hard to search up online local competitions because most of them exclude my age range .(16) I'm reputed in my HS as a talented artist, but I never had any art classes outside of school range (meaning a high probability of little to no technique) , which also means that even if I were able to join competitions, I don't think it'd be easy for me to win them. I
  12. Working with kids removes my sadness like magic I like to reflect on good deeds and less good things I've done everyday, even if it's just for 15min during a walk outdoors. Also, every few months I get a strong urge to pick up a pencil and draw anything on my mind, and I do it. It makes me extremely calm and in a reverie-like sentiment.
  13. Thank you so much, it's very reassuring for me. Not because I would aim for the minimum, but rather because I know I will be able to prioritize better my grades and activities. I have 1 and a half year to aim for grades and a cv that supposedly guarantee admission at least for first round (even though it's not easily predictable). Although I haven't gotten the opportunity to volunteer at a hospital because of my schedule, I still went to a formation day and I immediately knew that it was something that I have been passionate about. It's just that the nearest hospitals are an hour 30 away b
  14. Wow I thank you so much for sharing this with me. Some people in my school are very worried about building their cv and told me I should too. It's true that it's around 30% though. My experience so far is not related to medical centers so I was wondering if that mattered. Personally I like volunteering for charity at my local church. I get close with many families facing difficulties. I also really love art, I post online and all but i'm not familiar on how to make it cv worthy. It's just laying at the hobbies section. I think there's going to be some counselors in cegep that can help me with
  15. If it's not too much to ask, what did the community involvement section of your cv look like when you were applying? But I understand if you prefer to keep it private.
