  1. Hi Premed 101! I am trying to learn a bit more about what makes the University of Calgary's medical program unique? From perusing their website, I can see that the program is 3 years long. Beyond that, I am finding it hard to learn about the values of the school, any courses that they offer that other schools do not, etc. When I look at the University of Alberta website, in contrast, it appears much more clear to me what it might be like to be in their program (they seem to value Indigenous health, mental health of their students, and supporting their students academically through the pr
  2. So hello premed101! I have been lurking in this forum for quite some time and decided to make an account now that I have gotten accepted into a neuroscience program into ulethbridge for Fall 2021. I was wondering if this program is good to take? I am still waiting on admission updates from U of C or from MRU and Lethbridge was the quickest to accept me so far. I have no clue as to how to prepare to be premed so I am quite in a pickle as of now. I have also seen that ulethbridge also have a pre-proffessional transfer into medicine so I am also wondering if anybody have experience with that sor
  3. Hi guys!! I had a quick question about what end date to put for experiences that are still ongoing for the top 10 category. I can't seem to find it!
  4. Hello there, I am a first-time applicant writing my online application to the University of Calgary MD Program, and am looking for advice on writing the Top 10 Experiences section. I have found quite a few helpful pieces of advice on this forum (thanks everyone!) but was wondering if anyone would be willing to review mine for clarity and to ensure I am hitting the right points and tone. I would be happy to proof-read anyone else's as well, and provide what feedback I can! Thanks so much! Megan
  5. Would anyone like to start/join a Calgary based MMI practice group for the 2020 interview cycle?
  6. How is everyone doing? Have you been able to keep your minds occupied with thoughts other than "I wonder if they have started reviewing my file" or "how many more weeks until February?" Hang in there! I was wondering if anyone has been through the MMI process at Calgary more than once. I would like to know how similar, or different, the two (or more) years were regarding questions and content. Not looking for specific questions, as that's not permitted. General comments appreciated. Thanks, and hope to see you in Feb/March!
  7. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  8. Can anyone provide insight on choosing between Calgary and McMaster for med school? In terms of program, matching for residency after, heaviness of schedule, etc?  Any insights would be hugely appreciated! My friends and family are all closer to Mac but I think Calgary is a way more beautiful place to live.

  10. Hi Everyone, As the MMI comes nearer I was wondering if people who have given it in the past or who are planning to give it can share what their experience was like and what kind of mindset helped them to approach it. Also what makes Alberta's program unique? Why have you applied there (Apart from convenience of location) Andddd... which location have you applied to and why? I look forward to hearing from and engaging with all of you <3 Thanks
  11. I read that this year, there was 72 more people interviewed because of an increase in the number of spots in the class? In the past it was around 155 people in a class. Anyone know what the new class size will be for Class of 2022?
  12. Hey there, Just wanted a little insight on Alberta/Edmonton/Calgary as a whole. Being from Toronto, don't have much experience about it other than the fact that its freezing cold lol. How do you like the cities? How is the cost of living, weather, social life/people, activities, enviorment, etc. compared to Toronto/Vancouver. Cheers, Richard
  13. Premed! Are you struggling with your medical school interviews? Have you been previously rejected after the medical school interviews? Do you want to turn your interview rejections into admissions? I get it. When I applied to medical school the first time around, I had 5 interviews, but was rejected by all 5 schools. Sad ad depressed, I was lost how to to turn that around. However, I came up with a specific approach to interviewing for medical schools. Using that same approach, I again had 5 interviews the following year. The difference is that this time, I got into

  17. Hey everyone, I'm currently an Alberta resident going to school at Arizona State University and set to graduate in Spring 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance. I've recently decided to look into the possibility of applying to med school in Alberta since becoming a doctor is something I've always wanted to do but didn't think possible. I haven't really taken any of the pre-reqs (being a business major and all) and have a 3.81 cGPA. I am at ASU as a D1 athlete which is why i never pursued a science undergraduate, and have one year of eligibility left after this to potent

  19. Hi, Does anyone know how retaken courses are calculated for UCAN? For example at my Uni if you retake a course, your old grade will be replaced with the retaken course grade in the overall GPA calculation. Does this apply to U of C as well? Thanks in advance.
  20. Hey guys, so I'm IP BC, I've cross posted in UBC/UoA thread so hopefully not violating terms by posting here too.... Wondering if I work for 6-8 months rurally within Alberta whether I'd qualify for Alberta residency and rural considerations? If I got Alberta residency, do I get to keep my BC IP one if I'm back in BC and working by April / May next year? I will simultaneously be doing online schoolwork out of BC universities. What would be decent, competitive IP stats for UoC? How many weeks out of each month, or months out of the year would I be required to
  21. I wanted to make a list of medical school requirements (what/how many courses you need, what year they look at, any special eligibility to drop grades (e.g. UofT if you take a full courseload, you get to drop your lowest mark during that year), if school looks at your summer GPA. I have a makeshift list so far, but if anybody could add to it that would be great <3 When people starts adding, I'll finish with a nicer looking chart. Just need help with UBC Dalhousie (NOTHING): To be eligible to apply to Dalhousie Medical School, a full course load of five full classes in each of the two
  22. Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone wanted to get together for some MMI practice as a group, or if there already is a group started. I'd be interested in going through some questions and doing some constructive feedback. Respond here or PM me

  24. Hello everyone, I would like to say that I am a non-traditional student but then again, it's complicated. I am an RN in Saskatchewan and I want to go to med school. It has always been my dream to be a Dr. but as an immigrant, I had to get my PR one way or the other to qualify so I decided to study nursing as it a great career that I loved to get into and it was going to help me get my PR faster. After becoming a nurse, i feel like i need to do more which made me start researching med schools in Canada as it was my initial goal. Thing is, I do not have any premed courses (biochem, chem, or
  25. Hi, Just wondering what sort of stats OOP students get admitted with. Wondering if I would have a possible chance at interview and if I should start preparing as I feel Calgary is one of my best shots. Weighted GPA - 3.93 MCAT CARS - 128 EC's - Decently good (equated to 24.5 on UBC's measurements this year) - National sport, research presentations & publication, fundraising, surgical observerships, volunteering, coaching etc. Would I have a good shot at an interview and even post that? Appreciate any Calgary specific tips! Thanks
