  1. UofT, Western, Queens, McMaster, UOttawa or any Canadian schools
  2. I was wondering if there is anyone that got admitted to western/queens medical (or any other medical school that accepts your last two years gpa) and could give me some pointers on what they did to get in.
  3. When medical schools talk about cumulative gpa, are they only referring to the most recent 3 years of study or all 4 years of undergrad? Also, how would it differ if I did a 5th year prior to graduating?

  5. So I really want to get into medical school and I want to push through my last two years of biomedical science at York knowing i gave it my all. So if anyone who's obtained 3.9s/4.0 could share their study methods and tips, that would be much appreicated.

Also, I come from an immigrant family where im the first person to attend university and my parents didn’t know a lot about university and how things worked in terms of graduate schools
  9. Im doing biomedical sciences at York and I didn't do great during my first two years. Got a GPA of 2.7 in first year. Second year, first semester, I wasn't able to focus, sad all the time for no reason, i was lost and I withdrew from organic chemistry (also withdrew a course in first year), I'm doing bad in calculus (planning on dropping the course prior to the deadline and still attending classes so i can do better next time), I dropped two other courses; one by early september and the other by November. I plan on changing my second semester of 2nd year, i even looked at how to study effectiv
