  1. I'll consider US schools, although I've mainly been focusing on queens or western. I don't really mind how long it takes. I'm 22 at the moment. Hopefully I can get in around 25-27, once I get my GPA sorted out. Also aiming to do the MCAT in August.
  2. Hey all, been a while. Final marks came in, got a sGPA of 3.7 for the fall semester. It's an improvement from my previous semesters but not enough.

Year 1 of Undergrad (2015-2016,2017): I applied to U of T 4 years ago with the intention of becoming a doctor. My first year of undergrad went pretty horrible. I finished the first semester with a 2.18 sessional GPA, during the second semester I had a pretty bad mental breakdown and severe depression.
