  1. Hi all,

    Solely based on my GPA (MCAT isnt a problem) , which is a better route for Canadian medical schools?

    1 3.08

    2 2.96

    3 3.64

    4 3.93 (I turned my life around)

    I probably would land a better GPA during my 5th year. BUT, I just had a discussion with my PI and she thinks its better for me to do a research based graduate degree (she said I'll probs get 2 first author pubs) rather than do an extra year for Western and Queens (2YR GPA) only. She says at least for UofT/Queens, they pool the graduates based on their graduate work, but doesn't my undergraduate GPA also play a huge factor in addition to my graduate work? 

    However, in my opinion I think this is my best choice -> 5th year for Western and Queens 2yr GPA and APPLY DURING 5TH YEAR (conditional offer for Western and a less competitive GPA for queens) 

    There are so many other scenarios e.g. dont get in 5th year and apply during a gap year for a higher 2YR GPA; dont get in 5th year and do a masters; no fifth year and do a masters...

    The list goes on but I just want some opinions/advice.
