  1. That sounds amazing! I never knew such a thing existed. I'll keep updating the applications to see if there are any available spots, thanks for sharing this!
  2. Yeah for sure! The food recovery project was started by a couple of friends of mine in Hamilton where we take food that's about to expire from the farmer's market and we would cook (which is one of my favourite hobbies) for residents at a local shelter. I volunteered and ran as a co-lead (manage recipes, organize pickups, and food storage) for a couple of months until covid hit and we weren't able to meet up and cook food. The project now focuses on doing this distribution without the cooking part. I currently run the social media to spread awareness about food recovery. Overall, been working
  3. Given that I live with my parents and they are in the immunocompromised range, I was wondering if you could share ideas for virtual extracurriculars. So far, I'm running social media for a food recovery project in my hometown, virtual shadowing (it's real!), admin for a disease-related club at my uni, and was an upper year mentor for a younger person in my university program. I'm always looking for more things to do.
  4. Yeah! that actually makes sense. I calculated my 5 years excluding 10 of my courses and I estimate that it will be around ~3.94. I never thought of applying but this will be my backup just incase I don't get to the other places. thank you!
  5. Thank you! Yeah definitely, I agree. I think UofT is out of the question since, their GPA averages are almost a 4.0. Their wGPA is calculated so that 4 of the lowest grade courses are remove during the calculation. Considering my multiple course messups (mostly in first year and second), I dont think I can come close to a good enough wGPA. Yeah I was thinking of applying to Ottawa in my 5th year and maybe after my university. I'll be taking the MCAT this summer using prep 101. Wish my luck and thanks!!
  6. Hey guys! My GPA for each year is: Year 1: 3.22 Year 2: 3.62 (First semester = 3.26, Second semester = 3.98 (AKA When I pulled my shit together from personal problem) Year 3: 3.94 Year 4: Haven't started but I know I will get at least 3.96-3.98 I'm going to take the MCAT this summer and I know I will do great. I wanted to get your opinion on: Whether I should do a 5th year so my 4th year grades get considered or a masters? Edit: I forgot to mention my ECs: - Running a group of volunteers where we take food that's about to be thrown out, cook it
