  1. oh boy your dense, please re-read what i said and check admission stats. you are spreading misinformation about matriculation chances and full-time. admission statistics speak for themselves if pools ~25% matriculated have below the mentioned gpa bracket. i know you prob have this internalized "A+ or nothing" mentality your parent drilled in your head but that's not the reality. please be factual for example, here is some proof why you are wrong and misinforming everyone. here is why you are wrong: queens -> does NOT need fulltime https://meds.queensu.ca/academics/undergraduate/p
  2. It appears you're right about Dal. I am eligible for IP for both Ontario and BC. Ah, I'm a noob on premed, so I'm not really used to all this cynicism yet. You and others can see it as finding a loophole, frustrated that "those who didn't work as hard" are trying to get through the same golden gates... whereas others may see it as a shimmer of hope given unfortunate circumstance that affected their undergraduate performance. Bon chance The point I was trying to make in this thread still stands: you stand a chance with a decent gpa, provided ECs and MCATs strengthen out the rest.
  3. Just want to update this post after doing some research (Since it was difficult for me to find past posts like these on student doctor, **DELETED**, etc.,): You do not need an amazing GPA or full course load to get in. For those in a similar situation to myself, the following schools seem to be viable: Queens, UBC, McMaster, Memorial, DAL, and NOMS. I recommend you see for yourself stats on their MD admissions page OR check the accepted/rejected/waitlist threads found in every dedicated forum for each school. For your convenience, here are two statistic pages offered by the schools I
  4. Hi everyone, I see that about ~30% of students matriculated are at least within this bracket. I am wondering if anyone here who has been matriculated cares to share their stats? I have a hypothesis that this "relatively low" GPA is made up for by a very strong MCAT score and impressive ECs. I really wish UBC would provide statistics for the average MCAT scores for each bracket. They provide an overall average, so it may be the case that 4.0s are scoring at the 80-90 percentiles for MCAT, and the 3.8s are scoring at the 90+ percentiles to level their competitivteness. Thanks!
  5. Hi sorry for the bump. Do you know other schools that will look at two-year, second undergraduate degrees as equals to one's four-year, first undergraduate degree? Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the info on Manitoba. Is this accurate? UBC - I am a BC resident; AGPA is 75% for us Queens - Am I technically permissible to apply? Other med schools have a matriculated class with a 2-5% demographic for my cGPA bracket Mac - Am I technically permissible to apply? Same as above Manitoba - Seems I am not technically eligible What is a strong example of ECs? To add to the eligibility list: Am I correct in that I am eligible for NOMS and Memorial?
  7. Updated July 15th: This post is provide succinct information for those in similar shoes (5+ year degree, low cGPA) who are consider medical schools in Canada. I made this post because there is a lack of information for people with my stats who are interested in if they can apply for schools without completing a second undergraduate degree. If you have similar stats to me, you are not eligible to apply to schools that require high cGPAs, full course loads, or science pre-reqs. However, you are eligible to apply for (depending on your residency status) the following schools: Queens,
