  1. Thank you for your response! Yes I am from Waterloo. I completely forgot that I was essentially calculating my GPA with ALL my courses + labs. I am confused on how to calculate FCE... So for U of T, each semester course is 0.5 of a credit, and each full year course is 1.0 credit, right? How do labs fit into this? Waterloo's credit system works on a 0.5 and 0.25 system: each semester course is 0.5 of a credit, and each lab is 0.25 of a credit. Does that mean 2 labs = 0.5 credits? or since labs run for one semester long, they are 0.5 credits EACH? To give you a breakdown of my course
  2. Hi sorry, I should've given additional details. My 2YGPA is 3.6 (2nd and 3rd year) - I got mostly As, but was dragged down by 4 B+, a C+ and a terrible C-. My cGPA is lower than that, possibly around ~3.3, so it won't be very helpful. Yes, I had a full course load with 5 courses/term, and also labs that counted as separate 'courses', each weighing half a full course. I didn't do well in first year, but: First year: cGPA = 3.0 Second year: cGPA = 3.7 Third year: cGPA = 3.7 Because of my GPA I haven't decided if I should apply for this coming matriculation, so I may be
  3. Hi guys! I'm new to this sub, and just wondering if a wGPA of 3.6 will even be looked at by any of the Canadian Med schools? I'm a resident of ontario. I just finished 3rd year, and planning to do my MCAT soon but probably will take a gap year to work on my ECs. I do have one more year to pull my grades up a bit, but not sure by how much. I've had 2 research jobs with 2-3 expected publications, will this help with my application? I know my biggest obstacle is my GPA at the moment (assuming I'll do well on the MCAT), is there anyway to beef up my application so that my GPA is es
