  1. So sorry year 2 should be 3.73 not 3.37! Okay thank you for your advice I appreciate it!
  2. Hi everyone, I am looking for your real and honest advice here. I am in my fourth year of a b.sc undergad at mcmaster and will be graduating in the spring. I did not apply to med this past cycle because I had no confidence in my application and thought that perhaps doing a masters would be a better alternative in the meantime. While I have been offered acceptance to these programs the thought of letting med go without every trying makes me sick. I want to go to medical school so badly but I am so afraid that it will never happen for me and scared to face that reality. Here are my stats pl
  3. I am not sure if I am calculating my Manitoba gpa correctly but from what I understand for 90 credit hours (which is what I have) you can remove your lowest 15 hours (which is 5 courses at McMaster). If I remove my lowest five courses and convert to the 4.3 scale my GPA is a 4.145. Would you consider this too low?
  4. I don't think I'm eligible for Toronto's wGPA because I only took four courses in my second semester of first year since I withdrew from a course. I ended up redoing the course in second year and getting an A and taking an extra course this year to make it up but I still think I am not eligible. Otherwise that would also make a huge difference (if I'm calculating correctly it would bring me up to a 3.8+)
  5. Thank you so much. What do you mean by new Toronto wGPA?
  6. So you think I should do a fifth year rather than a masters?
  7. I also took an extra course third year winter (winter 2020) so the fact that its not counted at all is just the worst luck
  8. I'm not sure how exactly to reply so I apologize if I am doing this wrong. I appreciate your advice! I will keep this in mind when applying. I am aiming for a high MCAT but I acknowledge that I will most likely to need to rewrite unless I do extremely well. I am FULLY interested in applying OOP if I have a chance and in the US as well. I have parental support financially so while it would not be ideal it is possible. Had I not taken organic chemistry in the Fall 2019 term (my third year, first semester), which I should not have because it was an elective my GPA fall 2019 would have been a 3.92
  9. Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice. I am entering my fourth year at McMaster earning my B.Sc. Here are my stats converted using OMSAS: 1st year: 3.388 (sem1: 3.3 + sem2 3.5 (only took 4 courses)). 2nd year: 3.73 (sem1 3.62 + sem2 3.84) 3rd year: 3.78 (sem1 3.6 + sem 2 3.96) I know some schools aren't taking winter 2020 anymore:( Had I not taken organic chemistry in the Fall 2019 term (my third year, first semester), which I should not have because it was an elective my GPA fall 2019 would have been a 3.925 Bringing my third year grades to a 3.942. I wish I co
