  1. It's not too late, especially since you have a solid GPA and good research experience. I was also a physics major, though I did manage to take lots of bio/biochem/orgo courses during my undergrad. I echo Indefatigable's advice above - you should calculate how your GPA is evaluated through each school's policy to gain a better understanding of where you stand. I also suggest you look at each school's policy on grad degrees. Unfortunately this whole process is a lottery, so a good approach would be to follow through with your physics plans while repeatedly applying to medicine over se
  2. Fellow physics to med here. I have a B.Sc. in physics and will be starting at Ottawa this Fall. You definitely do not need any health-related EC's to be a successful applicant. The first thing you should do is take a look at how all the schools calculate your weighted GPA (e.g., UofT drops lowest marks based on full-time course loads, Ottawa weighs later years more heavily, McMaster just takes your raw cGPA, etc.). Once you take your MCAT, you'll have a better idea of where you stand. Focus on CARS so you raise your chances at Mac. The importance of ECs can get overblown for Ontario
  3. I got accepted at Hamilton on May 12th but will be accepting an offer at another school, so there is a Hamilton spot coming your way. I wish you all the best of luck, hang in there!
  4. I am OOP in the first quartile waitlist. I will be rejecting my offer due to an acceptance at a IP school. I wish you all the best of luck!
  5. Accepted/Waitlisted/Regrets: Waitlisted In Province (IP)/ Out of Province (OOP): OOP AGPA (x.xx/4.5): I believe around 4.484 MCAT (xx.xx/528): 523 Rural/Non-Rural: Non-rural Advanced Academics (PhD, pubs, academic appointment): 0 Just wanted to let my waitlist friends know that I will be removing myself from the waitlist due to acceptance at an IP school. I wish you all the best of luck, you can do this!! It took me 3 cycles until I got accepted at a school.
  6. Result: Accepted (Hamilton) Timestamp: 8:04 AM cGPA: 3.97 CARS: 129 CASPer: I think I did well - got Ottawa interview and Manitoba OOP interview with it. Year: Finished B.Sc. in Physics Geography: IP Button: NO BUTTON
  7. Interviews at Mac, Western, Ottawa and Manitoba (Manitoba as OOP, which needs strong CASPer). GPA: ~3.97, CARS: 129, no button.
  8. Thank you for your input! I will try my best to get my primary application in on June 1st. I will also try to get my list up to ~25 schools (including Wayne state), but OUWB no longer accepts Canadians as another poster suggested (i've checked both the MSAR and their webpage). I certainly have more non-academics that i didn't include in the original post, but i hope that the lack of extensive shadowing experience does not significantly impact my chances.
  9. Yeah I used the MSAR to compile that list. Thanks for the input. My CARS score has put me in a dilemma because i'm kind of forced to retake it if i want to have a shot at Canada but apparently USMD schools don't look favourably on retaking the MCAT. So I feel that my application to USMD is a "now or never" thing otherwise in the future they would see that i retook a 519.
