  1. Ya I'm not sure why waitlist is so slow this year, maybe pandemic is making students want to stay in the province they already live in? Not wanting to risk moving to another region with so much uncertainty still? Really not sure Thank you so much for the congratulations this was 4 ish years in making, started applying when i was 26 at end of my Masters, faced 3 rejections,( ranked 140, then 103, then 79) but prerequisites dragged me down took a year off to not apply re-do prerequisites, and finally now 29 finally in Routing for you!!! I know its been stressful to be on waitlist
  2. Hey guys, so I just checked my Minerva and I got my offer!!! I am waitlist spot #4 I have been checking the waitlist movement by refreshing McGill's webpage so I didn't think it moved, but they sent me an offer May 12 already on Minerva, but I just saw it on Minerva right now Seems there is a lag between minerva updates and site update/email sent. So maybe check yours as well just in case ? Feeling really blessesd!
  3. I went to CLSC on cavendish ( 5800 Cavendish Blvd, Côte Saint-Luc, Quebec H4W 2T5) they do serology tests there, and vaccinations and they were pretty free for vaccination app ( don't know if they will allow u to book if ure not living near there but you can try if you need any other stuff done for mcgill vaccines)
  4. So I called the CLSC thats like 10 minute walking distance - they told me I'm not " in their area of service" so they sent me to one an hour away by metro haha - but when I first called they initially told me no because of covid but when I said its for mcgill medicine and that I need to have it done by a certain date they said not a problem then, so maybe try mentioning this when you call? and check which CLSC is associated to your postal code as they didn't allow me to book at the walking distance one
  5. Thank you amazing, thanks for clarfying! I didn't know what PIQ meant haha Ya the nurse told me because I had my covid 19 vaccine I'm not allowed to get new vaccinations for at least 1 month, I will prob wait for my 2 covid 19 doses and then get it done, thanks for answering so fast <3
  6. Hey guys quick question for immunization, I went this week For Section D. Pertussis - I have had 3 doses of Tdap but the nurse said I had my last Tdap at 17 years old and 10 months, and that according to the form we needed to have had the last vaccination at age 18 or over? So she left it blank for the time being On the form it says "Newly admitted McGill students: For PIQ, 1 dose given at any age is accepted." and then underath this it says " A one-time pertussis vaccine (Tdap or Tdap-Polio) given at age 18 years or older (required even if not due for a booster)" I have 3 d
  7. Hope We will get to meet I am waitlisted Spot # 4 for mtl campus so keeping my fingers crossed for this year but I have a similar story, its my 4th time applying with a similar gpa as you. I did a B.Sc ( biochem) and B.Ed concurent degree at McGill which allowed me to teach, and then a masters at McGill simply because I wanted to, only decided at the end of my masters I wanted to pursue Medicine. I had a 3.65 so never thought I would even get an invite at all, or was deserving enough. I had always just pursued my passions in life, with work and with extracurriculuar never did any
  8. Admissions directly told me that the condition is for covid only as a lot of students were impacted by winter marks and classes being online and it might be enforced for next few years only until those winter marks are cleared through the application system depending on how long online learning goes on for but that afterwords there's a good chance they are reverting back to it and will be counting the prerequisites once again. The email came from Danielle whose head of admissions.
  9. It was on their website and when I emailed admissions they said they forgot to update that link, it no longer appplies as of last year and I think they have now updated everything
  10. Heya, I know the decision is frustrating, from my understanding the reason to exclude comes from the fact that most students did not have formal final exams for winter 2020 at McGill university. I know that this is not true for all universities so I can only speak for McGill, i know that at McGill my friends told me the exams they did have in science were open book and they had either 2 or 3 days to complete it, so all 3 of them managed to get a 4.0 gpa for the semester due to the fact that formal exams were cancelled and they were able to use their notes and the internet to comp

  12. I think deadlines for cegep and MDM applicants might be different too? due to different application times?
  13. It says all grades need to be submitted by January 15 2021 from what I read I think? please correct if i'm wrong. They send out offers in march so I don't think it would have a May 30 deadline
  14. Its for this coming year Application Fall 2020 - for admission for fall 2021 on their pdf I am pretty sure here https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/files/medadmissions/admissions_update_for_2021_applications.pdf it says " CHANGES FOR THE FALL 2021 ADMISSIONS CYCLE:" On main page it also says " changes for admissions for fall 2021" Fall 2021 admission cycle means you are applying this year for admission in 2021 year I've been trying for 3 years now, so I really hope this will be my year, fingers crossed for getting an interview for next year.
  15. Thank you amazing very helpful! in that case I have all the prerequisites already, I did them all in 2008-2010. I will still finish option 2 anways as I'm almost done with them anyways and if they do end up counting the grades for future years I will have done them with an improved prerequisite score.
