  1. I was just wondering how UWO calculates my grade percentage. My 2 best years are: year 3 : 84% year 4 : 93% do they take both those numbers and divide it by 2? Or do they average all 20 courses? Thank you!
  2. Thank you so much! If my single year is AT the cutoff for western (GPA 3.7, MCAT) can I still apply, or do they require a higher GPA or MCAT score? Would this be different in my case because I am using my last year (4th year) as my single year at cutoff, and im taking a 5th year?
  3. Hello, I am new here! Just wondering how the conditional acceptance works for Western Med School?

  7. Thank you! My grandfather was terminally ill so my parents had to leave the country to care him. So I had to take on a full time position at work just to pay rent by myself as well as send money over seas for his surgery. Do you think this is a valid reason?
  8. I dropped a course in my first semester of first year as well as second semester of second year. Will this still effect my weighted average? Thank you!
  9. Thank you so much! Do you know which schools do this?
  10. Hey guys! Unfortunately in my first year my GPA was horrible (2.3gpa) because of a terminally ill family member. I am in my second year and getting much higher grades (3.8gpa). I did fail a course in my first year as well, so my first question is should I retake all of my first year courses if interested in a Canadian medical program?
