  1. Thank you so much, and I agree with what you're saying. I will keep working hard for all of my commitments to prove myself a bit more before that June 1 deadline, and keep editing the application that I have written. I wish you the best of luck with your application!!
  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. I am prepared to grind for the MCAT (have already written it once and will be rewriting, so I'm aware of the tough process and can be realistic with myself) aiming for 517+ , to open opportunities in other provinces too.

Early in undergrad I never imagined I would be able to make it to med school but recently I've been getting my hopes up. Judging from how my term has been going so far, my final GPA taking out my worst year, for next cycle can be anywhere between 84-86, but I don't want to be unrealistic in wanting a take a gap year and not taking another opportunity to raise my GPA such as doing a masters or fifth year.
