  1. So I did email them, and their generic response was to refer to their website. The problem is they count courses' weight by length of study. Even though my course was double weight by MY school, because it's a semester course, Queen's treats it like other semester courses. Not to mention 2 of my 5 courses are P/F by design. So my 4th yr double weight courses unfortunately will all be reduced, which is why I don't meet their criteria. My situation is very sad. The years I do well don't count, trending doesn't count, summer doesn't count, bunch of P/F, lack of electives allowed. I do
  2. You are right about western and Queen's. That's why I'm struggling with this reality, it seems like my 3rd and 4th yr efforts don't matter because the way our program was designed.
  3. Thanks for the response. I have thought about master's degree as well but did not mention it in the post, because I feel lost about what master's to do if I am doing one, and also because it seems grad GPA won't be taken into account.

I have applied this cycle but did not get an interview at McMaster.
  5. I am an RN based in Ontario, trying to find out the best way to get into med in (preferably) Ontario. I have read the pinned post on 2nd degree already, but didn't find answers. Any help would be appreciated. I've been out of school for 5+ yrs. I'm not sure if a 2nd degree is the right way to go. Even if I do it, I don't know what I would do it in. (Seems most people on here have science/bio undergrad and they can have transfer credits easily or just do compressed nursing program.) I went to a hands-on nursing program at a university far from home, we had pass/fail courses fr
