  1. Hi everyone, I got accepted to UL for this fall. I’m looking to chat with either a current student in the UL medicine program or a graduate. If anyone is willing to chat it would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hi! Creating this thread for those applying to Ireland medical schools for the 2022 cycle! Undergraduate and graduate medicine programs. Drop any questions down below.
  3. Hi everyone! I'm doing my undergrad degree at the moment and I'm considering going abroad to study dentistry! I just recently found out that there are some graduate schools in Australia that are 4 years long if you have an undergrad degree (which I plan on getting). I know there has been lots of discussion on this but I wanted to start a discussion about what option is best if I'm interested in in studying abroad and wanting to come back to practice in Canada. I am genuinely interested in studying abroad and I'm not trying to "pay my way through dental school". That being said, my family and I do have the finances for me to study abroad. I have also considered schools in the States but I feel that the problem with US schools is that they have a different standard for each school. I know some schools that don't offer enough practice and students coming back from there have a hard time finding a job with the little experience that they have recieved at that school. On top of that, the exchange rate is quite high and is probably more expensive than schools in Australia and in Ireland (I would imagine). I have heard multiple times that Australia has some of the top rated dental/ medical schools! Is anyone in the same position? I would love to hear some opinions on this! Also, I would love any advice from students who are studying abroad or have come back to practice!
  4. Hey, I'm finishing up my research based masters in Ontario and have applied to med three times and haven't gotten an interview. My stats are quite poor, but medicine is all I've ever wanted and I don't feel like I would be fulfilled if I tried every option at med. cGPA is around 3.1 but depending on wGPA it's ~3.6 . I have a huge upward trajectory in grades, but still didn't make Western or Queens' cutoff. MCAT is 508 (128/126/126/128). Have a 4.0 in my masters but I'm aware that usually doesn't count for much. I think my ECs are very strong- multiple leadership positions both in research and in extracurricular activities, volunteer time at a hospital, two pubs submitted for review to journals. My end goal is to practice FM or peds in Canada- doing residency here too would be ideal, but if I have to go abroad I'm not opposed to just continuing to do residency there. So far the options I've come up with are: 1) Apply to Ireland right now (a bit of a rush for my references but I might be able to do it) 2) Go back to school to take a year of prereq courses for US DO that I never took, then apply Ireland and US DO 3) Work for a year while I try to get EU citizenship (I hear this significantly reduces Ireland tuition) then apply Ireland 4) Give up and find another career path If I'm being honest- I hate the consequences of each of those options and I need to feel that I'm progressing towards my goal in some way. So please, if you've gone international to study medicine I would love to hear your opinion and what your experience has been like. Canadians tell me that applying outside of Canada is a death sentence in coming back, Irish students tell me it's the best place ever to study, Americans tell me I better stay in North America.. I really can't make up this decision and if I'm being honest, leaving my friends, family and SO is also quite scary to me, but I guess I'll do what I need to. Any opinions or advice would be great, thank you.
  5. Hi everyone! I am new to the website and just wondering traditionally how hard is it to get into medical school in ireland as a Canadian Citizen? I have a 3.8 and just graduated with a degree in biology with honors. Have a decent amount of research experience as well as some very good references. I just won't have enough time to study for the mCAT so I might not do great so I am considering my options! Thanks
  6. Hey everyone, I'm really stressed so I apologize if this sounds very scatter brained. But I'm finishing up my 5th year at Western in Health Sciences and my GPA is just okay, around 3.6-3.7. MCAT is poor, 501 (125/124/126/126). I'm likely going to retake the MCAT this summer though as well as take Organic Chemistry since I currently do not have this prereq for Ottawa and pretty much every med school everywhere else. 1) Is my GPA scored differently to US MD and DO schools compared to Canadian MD schools? (Just wondering if UWO gets weighed differently or anything) 2) Are there any Canadian-friendly US MD and DO schools that do not consider sGPA? I have a total of 4 actual science courses and one of the marks was awful so my sGPA is abysmal. 3) Are there any international options for medical school that consider wGPA and are more lenient on course prequisites? (It's not feasible for me to do a 6th year or second undergrad to get math courses and english) 4) Is a research based masters beneficial to US MD and DO schools or any international schools? I know in Canada it really only makes a difference with U of T and as such, I haven't really considered it but now I'm wondering if that's a good idea Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  7. Hi everyone, I recently applied to the graduate entry medical programs in Ireland through Atlantic Bridge. Please let me know when you hear about invites/regrets. Best of luck!
  8. Hey guys, I'm at a cross-road for where to go if I want to continue the dream of getting into med school. I really goofed up my first couple years leading to an ~3.4 GPA after 6 years (5 years of BioSci and 1 year Psyc minor). The last 2-3 years were decent with a respective 3.6, 3.96, 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately I can't seem to get over the MCAT hump having written 3 times with a 500, 501, and 502 scores. The last one (502) had a 126 in CARS so I decided to apply to UofC and UofA being from Alberta (although definitely not holding my breath). I have very good ECs including fluency in 3 languages, lots of travel experience, and varsity soccer for what it's worth. I've all but given up on the Canadian dream and deciding what my best shot is for med school with hopes of returning back after I'm done. The choice is between USDO, Australia, and Ireland and from the numerous threads I've read so far, it seems like Australia has the slight edge over the others due to the fact that they give MD degrees as well as residency if I am unable to match back to Canada. So I want to get some advice on what you have all found. I'm biased in that I don't want to travel a full day across the world to Australia especially if I'll need to make that commute several times for blocks in order to establish networks here for a possible return. This other thread made USDO sound equivalent to the Australia and Ireland IMG path but that sounds too good to be true. I feel there is bias against USDO degrees rather than USMD or degress from Ireland/Australia. I'd obviously love to stay within North America but I want to maximize my chances of matching. If it helps, I'm aiming for family medicine which is supposedly the least competitive anyways. TLDR: With a 3.4 cGPA and 502 MCAT, what would you do if you were me? USDO/AUS/IRE??? Thanks!
  9. I have been researching applying to Ireland medical schools for their 5/6 year programs such as RCSI and NUIG. Having completed high school in 2016 and not attending university or college I believe they would still accept me as an applicant based on my high school marks? I attended a institution and received my paramedic certificate and have been working but other than that nothing else. Looking back on their requirements I would have to upgrade a couple of my classes and apply based on them. Does anyone know if what I have completed will interfere with my application? Also will they take upgraded marks? - Thanks!
  10. STATS: Age 24 First four years: biological science, did not complete, switched into engineering in fifth year, starting year 2 of engineer in September Cumulative GPA: 3.0, in most recent years 3.8 GPA however not a 5 course workload ECs: volunteering in many university clubs, elementary school in my neighborhood, optometry clinic, started my own successful business I've worked full time at a chiropractic clinic during school years, had 4 summer internships with an Engineering firm I realize I have no chances of getting into a Canadian or US medical school. I'm wondering if going to a Caribbean school or Ireland through Atlantic Bridge would be better. Which school will allow me a higher chance of coming back to Canada, and if both chances are equally as low then which school will allow me to practice in the States at least? I wanted to originally specialize in dermatology but I realize that is highly unlikely, however which one will give me a higher chance of specializing in something other than family medicine here in North America. I desperately want to start my medical school career, circumstances in my life have prevented me from excelling while trying to complete my first degree, however after switching to engineering and the changes I've made in my life, my grades have drastically improved. Finally, if both of these options are poor, do you recommend that I follow through with option C: complete my engineering degree - 3 years left - and try to aim for a higher GPA, in engineering that is likely around a 3.4 (most people fail and all exams get curved due to the intensity). Write my MCATs and attempt to apply to Canadian or US medical school? (am I even competitive if I do that though or will I be wasting my time). Thanks in advance for the advice!
