  1. Thanks for the tip. I honestly have no intention on going to the US. If I went out of Canada I would go to either Ireland, the UK or New Zealand. This is interesting. I am hoping to bring my GPA up to a 3.8 in the next 2-3 semesters. FYI though I am not from Ontario so I am OOP. I am assuming that this will drastically slash my chances right or is there any way that can actually work in my favour?
  2. I did about a year and a half of course work at Douglas, which is counted by UBC. Unfortunately my GPA there was not great because I was not considering med at the time and did not care much. So if I am understanding UBC's aGPA method correctly once I finish my bachelors at UBC my lowest year which was at Douglas college from Fall 2015-Spring 2016 ( 27 credits) will be dropped? If this is the case I may have a realistic shot at UBC med as my grades at UBC are better. I have about a year and a half to go and I hope to bring my GPA up to 3.8+ by the time I graduate.
  3. Maybe this is a dumb question but I figure I'll ask anyway because I'm sure approaching the sciences and mastering/learning the concepts are different from what I am used to as an arts student. Do you have any recommended methods to approach this? Flash card/memorization or do you recommend other techniques?
  4. Thanks for all the responses everyone. Can you tell me a little more about the prep101 course? I just looked it up and they allow free repeats so that could be beneficial. Do you think it would be helpful given my limited science background? Should I maybe study some of the basic sciences first and then take it? What would be your advice? Thanks.
  5. I'm more than halfway through my degree and I recently just realized how much I loathe what I am studying. I will finish my bachelors degree but there is no way I want to do law school or pursue my masters/PhD anymore. There is no way I will enjoy working in academia, nor do I like research. If I felt this way 2 years ago I would have changed my major in a heart beat but I feel that it is too late for that now. I've done some physician shadowing and volunteered in a medical setting for a while, and I liked it. I know it's not at all as glamourous as some people make it out to be, but truthfull
