  1. Hello, are there any USA educated OTs who practice in Canada
  2. Hello everyone, I am a Canadian applicant who graduated in 2018 with a 3.69 cGPA/3.8 GPA to Western/Queen's & 3.7 GPA to US schools. My MCAT is 516 (129/127/130/130) (2019) (Past: 509, 512) and I have a very strong EC and research experience with no publications. I had no interview invites the last 2 years (Canada & US) and I'm afraid it was due to my low GPA for Canadian schools. For US schools, my options were very limited as I did not meet some course pre-reqs, and I understand space is limited for Canadian applicants. I feel like I'm getting no where in my 3rd a
  3. I am Canadian. What are my chances for top american med schools? Which american schools would you recommend applying to? What would you recommend improving in my application between now and September? I have a 4.0 cGPA, 521 MCAT (127 CARS), many meaningful extracurriculars (although I am worried because I do not have any meaningful research or shadowing). A few of my major ECAs include: -Student trustee of a major Canadian research university -Member of student government -Youngest board member of a national education advocacy organization - National chair of prestigio
  4. Hi all, The CaRMS province-specific eligibility criteria indicate that Canadian citizens who graduate from an LCME-accredited medical school (i.e a US allopathic medical school, which grants an MD degree) are eligible for CMG-designated residency spots. For instance, the Ontario eligibility criteria webpage says "A Canadian Medical Graduate or U.S. Medical Graduate (CMG/USMG) is an individual who received their medical degree from a medical school accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS) or the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). From her
  5. Hi all,I'm a 3rd year Ontario non-SWOMEN undergrad student with an MCAT score of 131/127/131/128 (517 total). My GPA is ~3.98 and I have strong non-clinical ECs and clinical research experience. I'll be applying to Canadian med schools this upcoming summer, and if I don't get accepted I'll apply to Canadian and US med schools the following year.I'm concerned that my 127 CARS shuts a lot of doors in Canada - I think I'm really only competitive for U of T, Queens, and Ottawa - so I'm considering re-writing. However, I'm concerned that re-writing will harm my chances at US med schools, as I've he
  6. I'm in the third year in McMaster University and I want to apply to both Canadian and American medical schools this summer. I'm really lost in regards to this process; who should write my LoRs? How would I submit them to both Canadian and American medical schools? When should this submission be done?

  8. I'm a 3rd year undergraduate student that applied this cycle to 4 universities in Ontario (Toronto Mac Ottawa Queens). I don't have a dual citizenship. I wish to practice in Canada eventually but beggers can't be choosers :/ Does anyone have experience applying to a US MD/DO schools from Canada? Or any advice for how I should begin and the timeline of the process? I plan on applying US MD/DO next cycle (4th year) potentially. Here's some stats (Yes I know they're high, but you guys know how much of a crapshoot it is. I've many friends with good applications that somehow didn't g
  9. Hey everyone, So it's my first time considering applying to American schools and I was hoping someone would be able to share some info about MSU. From what I can see, it looks as though they are relatively Canadian friendly, as anyone who is a Canadian citizen can apply with full consideration given to degrees obtained in Canada. However based on their admission statistics on MSAR, they only accepted 3 from 500 international applicants. Seeing as how MSU doesn't accept non-US citizens, non-US residents or non-Canadian citizens, does that mean in this case Canadians were considered in
  10. I have a Science undergrad. My cGPA is 2.95 for american MD schools, but for D.O. (with repeated courses), my undergrad cGPA is 3.03. I have already started an MBA program*. I was wondering: 1. How do I calculate my GPA for american D.O. and MD schools correctly? I can't find a proper source. (I just used the A = 3.9, B+ = 3.3, B = 3.0 , B- = 2.7 ..etc type of method). 2A. Would MBA course grades boost my GPA for D.O. schools? 2B. Would MBA course grades boost my GPA for American M.D. schools? 3. What's the minimum MCAT score you'd say I'd need to give me a fight
  11. For those of us applying to both Canadian + American med schools: do we write the CASPER test once, or are there different versions of the CASPER test?
  12. Hey there! I've bought the MSAR, and have looked through it a lot... however I am having some serious struggles with deciding where to apply to. My cGPA is a 3.65 with a strong upward trend (first year GPA was a 3.0), my MCAT score is a 509 (poor CARS score), I am rewriting my MCAT this summer. I have already completed 90% of the AMCAS application, but now I'm questioning if it's even worth to apply.. Literally every school I look into has different course requirements, different letter of reference requirements, and barely matriculate international students. (What even is the poin
  13. Hi Everyone, first time poster here looking for some advice for a unique situation that I'm in. Hopefully some other people out there have been through something similar or might know some information that I don't! I'm planning to apply to medical school this summer but I'm debating if I should apply to American schools for several reasons. First, some facts: I have an undergrad degree from an Ontario university (cGPA = 3.80, sGPA = 3.85, year 2-4 GPA = 3.89) I am currently in my first year of a two year graduate program (Physiotherapy at an Ontario university), which I will finish in
  14. Hi guys, I've tried searching on this but couldn't find anything, so I was hoping someone might be able to comment. For those who have written both the Canadian and American DATs and have/are applying to the States, do schools even bother looking at the Canadian one if you've written the American version? Do you even have to send your Canadian scores to schools if you're sending American ones? (I understand that some schools only accept the American one or prefer it over the Canadian one, but I'm just asking in general) I've scored well (21+) on all parts of the cDAT except for carving, whic
  15. Hi everyone, I am in my third year majoring in civil engineering at UBC and am interested in applying to dental school. I have taken most required bio/chem/biochem courses. My first question is how do you convert your average grade in percentage to GPA? I tried looking on the school websites on their methods since every school is different, but have had no luck so far. Does anyone have links to these pages? FYI my cumulative average is 82% and 85% if you take out my worst year (If you know what GPA this is roughly please let me know!) Next, I know that it is extremely competitive
  16. Hey guys, I have a friend (from Canada) who applied to the MD/PhD at a bunch of US schools, then opting out of the PhD option when getting accepted. He said the reason for this is a lot of schools do not take Canadian students unless they apply for the MD/PhD. 1. Are you able to bail out without any repercussions? 2. Is this a widespread practice? 3. Does this increase your chances of getting into med school overall? I did a quick search on the forums, but couldn't really find the answer I was looking for (although I might have missed it). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. As a Canadian student who has spent all of their time, research and effort applying to medical schools within Canada, I would like to know if anyone here could inform me if it is simply too late to apply within the American system? From what I understand, their system admission has a rolling admissions process beginning during the summer and going until late fall, and that I would be at a significant disadvantage now applying late as an international. Regardless, is it too late to apply within AMCAS now at this point? If anyone has some insight into this system or an answer I would greatly
  18. Hey Everyone! I've applied to Canadian Schools twice and American Medical Schools once and have never gotten any interviews. With my GPA and MCAT I think I am going to apply to apply to the Carribean if I dont get any interviews this cycle, but I wanted to maximize my chances, but am unsure of what schools would be the best suit for my stats. cGPA = sGPA = 3.91 MCAT: 1) 24 (10PS/6VR/8BS) 2) 28 (11PS/6VR/11BS) 3) 28 (11PS/8VR/9BS) 4) Awaiting marks, but I suspect around (125 PS/124CARS/124 BS/ 123 PSY) ECs: Long term hospital volunteering, volunteering with for homeless peo
  19. Alright so I've completed two years at McGill University.. First year my GPA was a 3.1 (but I really did not work) Second year I tried and got a 4.0. If I continue this trend for the 3rd and 4th year and get straight As again (barring one or two unfortunate classes), how do my chances stand? I do research in History, play a sport at a competitive level and have a good volunteering experience as well as letters of recommendations from doctors. (I plan to give my MCATs next year and lets assume I do well in them too)! Which universities should i be focusing on? Or - which universities drop
  20. Hey all, So I'm applying for US med schools this round and I just realised how important clinical experience is for med school applicants in the states. I have absolutely none - not even volunteering at a hospital. In my hometown, I've worked with the elderly at a long term care home and underprivileged youth, but never in a clinical setting. I have a 3.88 GPA GPA (OMSAS conversion) and 33 MCAT, plenty of research experience and extracurriculars. :S Just wondering how are my chances in the US looking atm and what I can do to compensate for my lack of clinical experience? Thanks in
