  1. With Scotiabank in Ontario, you get the full amount right away (takes a few days to process).
  2. Salut! J'ai fait un bacc en sciences de la santé à UOttawa direct après le secondaire 5 et je ne le recommande vraiment pas. C'est faisable, mais je te suggère très fortement d'aller au Cégep, où tu vas pouvoir compléter tous tes préalables. Ensuite si tu n'es pas accepté tu peux remonter tes notes à l'uni En plus, sciences de la santé ne donne pas des cotes de rendement élevées au Québec (c'est considéré comme biologie, même si c'est vraiment pas un bacc en bio). Tu peux me contacter si tu as des questions!
  3. Québec med schools (except McGill), use this system which is very different than rest of Canada. It can be in your advantage depending on your grades and the program you're in. They are also changing how interview invites work this year. I recommend checking out their pages. Good luck
  4. Check out les étalons de cotes de U Laval. Your GPA is converted based on which program you're in. UdeM and Sherbrooke don't release their étalons. These are not actual numbers, but let's say someone with a 4/4 GPA in biology could be a 33 CRU at Laval and someone else with 4/4 in physiotherapy could be a 36 CRU at Laval.
  5. Hi! Assuming your Casper went very well, you probably will get an interview. Receiving an offer really depends on the interview though. Good luck, and I advice to stop thinking about it until January
  6. I remember our advisor in high school telling us that we were getting an extra something for our cégep applications It was a while back though!
  7. I'm not sure if it's still the case or even if it ever was at these Cégeps, but we were told we had a small bonus to our average if we did IB (like 0.5 or something). I'm not sure as it's been a while but it's worth asking your academic advisor about!
  8. Bonjour, À ma connaissance, l'Université d'Ottawa accepte uniquement des étudiants canadiens (aucun étudiant international, sans exceptions).
  9. Hi! Some students are native speakers, others are not. No one is expecting students to have a perfect french. However, everyone is comfortable interacting in french with their peers, professors and patients. If you are able to write the Casper in french and interview in french, then your french is good enough
  10. I really don't know. You can contact their admissions officer by email
  11. Hi! 1) Unless it changes, the one pass/fail class per semester applies. It has not changed. 2) You can credit some classes, but make sure to have a full course load (5 courses/semester; or 4 but missing courses taken during the summer/another academic year). For example, if you got credit for class X and you only take 4 courses in the fall semester, you need to take the 5th missing course. Good luck
  12. Hi, People get in the french stream with that GPA, but I think very very few with that GPA get in the english stream. If you get a decent Casper and a decent ABS, you have a very good chance of getting an interview in french. Good luck!
  13. Interesting! I'm sure we could find some people for whom it doesn't apply, but I think these applicants have something amazing that compensates for this.
  14. As others have said, luck is definitely involved. As long as they don't release scores for Casper and the ABS, we will never really know why some people get and interview and others don't. I do have a theory though. It's something that I have noticed but I could be totally wrong. I think that they look for a significant commitment during the academic year on the ABS. Wether it is a part time job, volunteering or even a competitive sport, I think they want to see that you can have good grades while doing something else for at least 10 or 15 hrs/week. The people I know with very high GPAs
  15. This fee calculator has been accurate for my previous years at UOttawa and includes everything. So the amount you get is probably accurate! I haven't heard anything about registration... I have access to UOzone because I have studied at UOttawa previously and it seems like I am not registered in any program.
