  1. Fair enough - It is a little more complicated than even that. I played Jr A hockey, then signed a few short term pro deals in europe - Then developed a heart condition that stopped me from playing. Took me a few years to come to full terms with that so I coached a bit and that sort f thing.. Thanks for the answers I really appreciate it.
  2. After highschool I pursued a sport for 5 years. I picked university up at 23-24 and am an applicant at 27. During my somewhat unsuccessful run at pro sports, I did some volunteering and stuff but not much else... How do i frame this? Is it ok?
  3. Hello, For those in or applying to med, what seems to be the average age of the students? I am not going to be ready to apply until 26, looking to see how abnormal this is. Thanks all.
  4. Hi there, Ontario resident, fluent in french. As an Ontario resident can I just freely apply to the Quebec med schools? Does anyone know? The websites are a little bit unclear.
  5. Thank you all for answering my initial post.. means a lot. Ive carefully read all of your input. I think my initial gut feeling was to also keep it under wraps... I suppose my only big worry is the three year gap on my timeline after high school where I flunked out of a professional career... broke my shoulder, got addicted to pain meds. I am not sure what to write for that time or how to account for it on my applications. Any suggestions for this? It has been very interesting reading all of the above, amazing to get the perspectives of people working in the field. Thanks again.
  6. Would you mind explaining what you mean? Thanks
  7. Hello, 23 year old first year UG student as mentioned. In my past, my gap between highschool and UG I was an athlete. I struggled for two years with opioid addiction after being overprescribed for an injury I sustained during my sport... I am now volunteering in addiction and with vulnerable populations. I am wondering whether this sort of thing and "story" or angle can be used as experiences that shaped me on my medical school applications? It is the reason I want to pursue medicine I just do not know if it is too taboo. Thanks
  8. Hello, Quickly, I am 23, I am an ex-athlete starting from square one hoping to get into a Canadian medical school. I played professionally in Europe and only took 3 online university courses over 5 years and got B's in all of them, but have a bunch of withdrawals on my transcript as I didnt care at all about school during my sporting years. I am now starting a Bsc in september and have spent the last year redoing all my highschool sciences to freshen up on everything. Ontario resident. I guess my questions are: Am I too old to just be starting
