  1. Hey guys, I'm about to finish CEGEP soon and I'm still very confused about the path i'm supposed to follow in order to get in medschool since i'm from Quebec! I even spoke to Diane Parent . She told me that all i needed was to get the right Wgpa in my pre-requires courses to get in. But now i'm reading what you guys wrote here and i'm lost.. haha can i just do my pre-requires and apply as an undergrad at Uottawa? Or do I have to go get a BAC frst? thanks
  2. Hi I have applied to several private schools Northeastern US schools, U of T and western, and Irish schools. I'm wondering if anyone can comment on my chances. I have not yet received any interviews from US schools and don't know if I have missed the boat. Degree: BScH in Life Sciences with Minor in Computing Academics: cGPA: 3.51/4.0 science GPA: 3.48/4.0 Best two years for western: 90.75% Canadian DAT: AA: 20 BIO: 19 CHEM: 20 PAT: 22 RC: 20 TS: 19 ECs: -100 hours shadowing -1 summer working in dental office -1 summer in neuroscience research -1 s
  3. Just a little rant on med-school admissions. Anyone else frustrated that medicals schools have such vague prerequisites requirements? For a program that is amongst the most competative i'd expect some clear instructions on what marks to get in what specific classes...when I first researched requirements it said that you can be ANY major you want and no required courses...how does that make any sense? A least give prospective students some recommendations on what to take to relate/prepare for medical school material. When I first decided to go the med-school route I was so damn confused on what
  4. Does anyone know anything about admissions to the MDCM program for applicants pursuing a masters degree? Do I need to complete the masters degree PRIOR to entering the MDCM program if admitted? Are graduate courses grades taken into account in the GPA calculation? Can't seem to find any info on graduate applicants. Thanks!
  5. Does anyone know when the admission offers for MOT come out for U of A?
  6. For a university such as UofT which prefers its MD applicants to have research experience, do you think having publications can "make up" for a lower wGPA such as 3.88? I'm worried that I will not be invited for interviews due to my low marks but I have a lot of experience in research and in my opinion, good ECs. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hello all! I'm in a bit of a bind. I was perusing the UWO admissions FAQ (for no purpose other than to distract myself) and noticed this fun little line: "Please note, only one full or equivalent Pass/Fail credit will be permissible in each of the two years being considered for GPA." I chose to Credit/no credit 1.5 credits (3 classes) last semester due to personal reasons. To make up for that I am taking 4.0 credits this semester. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and if so what did you do? I was planning to apply to Western next year using this year's GPA and no
  8. hi guys, was wondering what my chances are of getting into any dental schools in the states with my current gpa and what schools i should apply to.So i graduated from a Canadian university with an average of ~70% (i know it's low ): ). I am currently finishing a dental hygiene program and was wondering if that would help me with my dental application (would dental schools look at that??). I am also doing two extra fourth year level undergrad science courses (getting an 80+ right now). I have some dental experiences and I will be doing my DAT by the end of the year. What are my chances of getti
  9. Does anyone know if there is a good/bad wait list for the French stream? If so, how much do those wait lists usually move up?
  10. Hi all, Long time lurker, first time poster. Considering putting forward an application to the OT program at Mcmaster for next year. On their admissions page, it says : "Applicants require a four-year baccalaureate degree (120 units/credits or equivalent) with a minimum GPA of 3.30/4.0 (B+ or 77%) in the last two (2) years or 60 units of university academic study" and then later "GPA of all graduate work will be calculated the same as undergraduate work." Does this mean that if the most recent credits you completed were part of your graduate degree, that those are the 60 units c
  11. For anyone else out there who obsesses over numbers, I did some statistics based on a 3-year average (2015-2017), with numbers plucked from the official dean's reports (2015) (2016) (2017). Every year on average, there are: 2,577 total applicants ... (2,473 + 2,775 + 2,483) / 3 449 candidates invited to interview ... (457 + 441 + 449) / 3) 171 seats filled (133 in London, 38 in Windsor) - this has been the same for the last 3 years. A first year class with a demograph of 58.3% male and 41.7% female ... Males: (61 + 59 + 55) / 3 ... Females: (39 + 41 + 45) / 3

  13. I'm sure some of you have seen this data and I might be too late to the party but in case you haven't I though I share it because it seems like it interests most of us on here. The research study confirms what most of us probably agree with which is most students want to become doctors just to make a living and the hope is that the system can filter them but it turns out the system cannot and it also seems like it's might be causing bias. I think this has a lot of interesting data for you all to take a look at about admissions in Canada. https://sortsmart.io/blog/canadian-medical-school-

  15. Hello! I’m a second year student attending University of Ottawa. My CGPA is an 8 here, which translates to a 3.59 when all my class gpas are averaged. This year is going much better as I should finish with mostly 4s, but since I did poorly in my first year, my average will always be affected and it seems daunting to bring it up to a 3.9+. I have 3 B+’s, and 1 B in organic chemsitry that are really weighing me down. I’m looking for people who have or had been in a similar situation and have had success when applying to medical school in Canada. Is there still hope? Thank you
  16. Hello! I tried to email Queen's Admissions to get a clear and accurate response but however, they were unable to provide me with further clarification. I am hoping that I'll receive some clear answers here! My question is: If I take additional courses (i.e Athabasca University) after the completion of my undergraduate degree, will the courses that I take count towards my 2 Year WGPA EVEN IF these courses are individual undergraduate courses that DO NOT count towards an additional degree or towards my completed degree? As long as these courses: - Fulfill the requirement for full-time stud
  17. Hi all, I am wondering when U of T will contact me regarding my application and status? I sent my application last week and my transcripts should arrive in the mail in the next few business days. How long did it take for them to contact you after you paid and applied? I'm just nervous because I don't want an incomplete application. As you can tell, I've never done this before haha. Any help is appreciated.
  18. Im a second year life sciences student at U of T. I have recently become interested in nursing. From my understanding, U of T's BScN program usually gives acceptances to applicants who have already completed a 4 year undergraduate program. However, the minimum requirement to apply for the program is 10 FCE. Ive read other forums and I havent seen anyone in their second year of undergrad who has been accepted or has applied. I was thinking of applying to the program after my second year but after ive done this research is it useless for me to try and apply without a bachelors degree? Has anyone
  19. Has anyone here done the neuroscience program at the university of calgary? What would be my chances of getting in, my grade 11 average is around 94.6%. How are the research opportunities? How difficult is it? Can anyone compare it to the biomed program at UofC? How are the profs and other students? Also just any general information about Calgary and the university would be helpful!! thank you
  20. Hello, fellow aspiring doctors! I am a 27-year-old mom of two, happily married and going to school full-time... working hard to achieve my goal to become an MD someday. I don't care if it is going to be 5 years from now, 10 years from now or 20 years from now. I am going to be one someday. That being said, I have a question - which school do I have a chance at... at the moment? My cumulative GPA (not weighted) is embarrassing. It is 75.1. However, I have been working hard in my recent years. So my trends are like this: 1st year in undergrad: 71% 2nd: 69% (I really stru

  22. Disclaimer: The application cycle opening in 2017 for admission in August 2018 is NOT affected by the following information. As alluded to in a number of threads in this topic, the requirements for admission to the University of Alberta MD Program have been updated. As published in the University of Alberta Calendar1, for the cycle opening in 2018, admission to the MD program will require an undergraduate degree. The minimum GPA for residents of Alberta remains 3.3, with out of province applicants at a minimum of 3.5 on a 4 point scale. Admission decisions will be based on the overall GPA
  23. Hello, I am wondering if someone can shed light on the GPA required to get into med school in Ontario. I know that different medical schools have different GPA requirements and calculate GPAs differently, but what is the general GPA required. Also, I find it difficult to covert GPA into a percentage grade and I am finding various charts online. Can someone please shed light on this. Also, for individuals accepted into medical school, what GPA did you have? I would like to mention that I am a first year pre-med student. Thanks!
