  1. Il semble que oui, les MEM auront lieu en format virtuel cette année.
  2. You definitely don’t want to spread yourself out too thin as the goal is to excel in each aspect of your application, which can be better achieved by focusing on one thing at a time, rather than getting mediocre results across the board. So I think you have the right attitude in choosing MCAT vs coursework, not both simultaneously. As I mentioned, I’m by no means an expert for Ontario and don’t know exactly what some schools like/consider/value in terms of type of coursework, whether part time/full time, post bacc vs 2nd undergrad etc. Hopefully some others can chime in who have more Onta
  3. There are instances of ppl getting in with a gpa of 3.5, 3.6 etc, but these seem to be more the exception rather than the rule. I think if you want to significantly increase your chances, working on raising your undergrad gpa is the way to go.
  4. Hey, I’m a non trad too I’m not very familiar with Ontario, but I think it’s more or less a universal rule for med school in Canada: You’d have to get your undergrad gpa up, closer to ~3.8 to be competitive.
  5. Salut! J’ai une question aux étudiants qui ont fait l’année préparatoire à l’U de M. On parle souvent de l’énorme charge de travail dans le programme de doctorat en médecine. Je me demandais donc en quoi se ressemble la charge de travail en année préparatoire? Est-elle similaire à la première année du doctorat? Ou plutôt comparable à une année d’études de premier cycle (bac)? Quelque part entre les deux? J’ai déjà regardé le schéma de l’année préparatoire publié en ligne mais je trouve ça quand même difficile d’évaluer la vraie nature de la charge de travail au niveau pratique. À quo
  6. Wow, je suis tellement désolé d’entendre ce que vous vivez. La situation de votre cohorte semble être effrayante. Comment savez-vous que la charge de travail de votre cohorte est bcp plus immense que celle d’autres années? Avez-vous parlé/comparé avec des étudiants en 2me/3me/4me année? Est-ce que la même chose s’applique aux étudiants en année préparatoire? Je suis juste curieux, voyons que j’ai fait une demande à l’udem cette année. Au moins vous avez la possibilité de prendre une année de congé, mais le fait que vous devriez subir une évaluation lors de votre retour n’est p
  7. Well, it kinda is a scam since they charge a lotta $ yet offer no lectures, in-person office hours, etc, since it’s an online course, and their academic staff often don’t even give you the time of day via email which is reprehensible given what you pay. Their texts are also ridden with errors and it’s up to you to navigate the mess. On the other hand, it is a legit uni in the sense that a lot of their courses are recognized by admissions committees so you can get what you need. Just need discipline and be able to learn well independently because there are no fellow students taking the cours
  8. I took PHYS 202 (aka physics III) at athabasca. Of the online courses I’ve done there, this one was the best so far as the course coordinator was helpful and engaging, for example acknowledging mistakes I’d pointed out in their practice examples (unlike in other courses I’ve done there, where the “academic experts” didn’t care at all and just sent copy-paste responses which they send to everybody, or didnt even reply at all). The course focused on magnetism, electromagnetism, waves, optics among other subjects, iirc. They mailed me a huge toolkit to conduct labs at home. I put in the work
  9. C’est l’inverse, non? Si j’ai bien compris, ce n’est qu’à la 4me étape que le dossier personnel compte pour 50%. À la 3me, les notes comptent toujours pour 60%.. https://www.usherbrooke.ca/doctorat-medecine/admission/contingent-quebecois-categorie-universitaire-profils-particuliers/#c171180-1
  10. Si je ne me trompe pas le seuil de CRU pour la catégorie marché du travail est plus bas que la catégorie universitaire normale, mais pas beaucoup plus bas. Honnêtement je ne sais pas si un 3.0/4.3 suffirait, même pour le marché du travail. Je pense qu’il y a des bonifications que tu peux obtenir si tu complètes une maîtrise et/ou un doctorat, par exemple. Avant que ta note autobiographique soit considérée il faut d’abord passer le cut-off de CRU. Donc si j’étais dans ta position, je me concentrerais sur l’améliorstion de CRU plutôt que faire du bénévolat.
  11. Even velcro elastics require yarn, whereas haystacks essentially require extravagance
  12. Can you put someone else (other than your non compliant former manager) who worked there with you instead? A colleague? A client? The verifiers are, as I understand it, meant to do just that: simply verify the veracity of the CV entry in question. I’d confirm with the admission committee but they’re not asking for a reference (usually a superior, i e your non compliant former manager who could fit that bill) but rather someone (anyone) who can attest to the truth of your cv entry. Don’t put someone’s name if they explicitly asked not to be listed. You’ll have to find someone else, or
  13. Don’t take this the wrong way as I’m sure you’re in the thick of it and working really hard on your Master’s right now but I would take the acceptance to med, assuming you get it. An acceptance to med has in my view greater long term professional value than finishing a master’s degree “on time“. Maybe you could finish the master’s thesis on a part time basis over the next N years, parallel to med and in agreement with the faculty of medicine. Maybe you could do one year of med, then ask for a leave of absence to finish your master’s research. Maybe you could even finish all of med school
  14. Some do (Uottawa), for others they’re perfectly acceptable (UdeM). Depends where you plan to apply.
