  1. Hello everyone, I've read a bunch of your stories and I have to say that reading about your journeys has kept me motivated knowing that I have a shot at becoming a doctor here in Canada. I was hoping to get some feedback on my application and also to get some feedback on what I should be doing next. A bit about myself: I am 24 years old (turning 25 in a couple months), and I will be finishing up my Masters degree in April/May.

  6. Hello all, I am trying to decide what is the best route to take my English requirements to be eligible to apply for UBC med. I have to choose between TRU, Athabasca or UBC. I am a masters student so I could technically do my full year of English during the year but I have some other courses I am interested in and I hear that English can be annoyingly difficult to get a good mark in so I would rather just focus on that in the summer.
