  1. Ive just graduated from my undergrad in Alberta with an Okkk GPA.. around 3.7 (first few semesters of undergrad were pretty rough since I prioritized sport but eventually got on the deans list and graduated with honours). I have 2 years of research experience, a co author publication coming in the fall, travel experience, and competitive sport background. I am due to take my MCAT this fall and I have recently been presented with a unique opportunity from a previous research supervisor to do a funded masters at UofT starting this September (most likely on the topic of cardiac oncology). I
  2. Hi everyone, So I'm finishing up my BBA with no science courses under my belt (I decided on medicine late in the game, during my 4th year). I really wasn't planning on applying to further schooling, much less switching to medicine so my grades weren't a huge priority to me and I didn't do so hot. My biggest concern is that with a low GPA, my application might not even get looked at, even if I do well on the MCAT and get some good extracurricular experience. My averages by year are: 1 - 3.76 2 - 3.28 3 - 3.42 4 - 3.09 5 - 3.95 (estimated) Cumulativ
  3. Hey all I was just wondering if anyone here applied for McMaster's MSc in Global Health for Sep 2020? I was wondering if anyone heard any update with regards to when admissions are going to be out with the current situation! Thanks
  4. When I submitted my application to U of C back in October as a current MSc student, I had discussed a timeline with my supervisor and committee that was feasible (albeit tight) to finish in time if I was accepted. However, now I have an interview, but there have been a lot of setbacks with my research and I don't know if I would be able to finish my research, write and defend my thesis, and have my degree conferred (and move!) in time to start in July. I am working with my supervisor to make it happen, and there is obviously no guarantee of acceptance at this point - but in advance I wan
  5. Hello Everyone/Salut tout le monde! I am a Quebec university student who is graduating from undergrad this semester. I’m planning on applying to a DESS (Diplôme d’études supérieures spécialisées) program at Université de Montréal before applying to Medicine and Pharmacy next application cycle. Let's cut to the chase: I’m wondering if being part of a DESS program will significantly hurt my chances of being accepted to the Quebec Medical schools, compared to a full-on Masters degree. Pros to the DESS (in my opinion): DESS programs are only 1 year of full time study, and many of th
  6. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on writing the MCAT. I have been toying around with writing the MCAT since the last cycle's results came out on May 12th. I am from Ontario and was on the waitlist for the only school I applied to last cycle (NOSM). A little background/stats: I am a non-traditional applicant. Degrees: HBSc (Chemistry), Bachelor of Education (concurrent), Master of Education (completed Nov 2019). GPA: cGPA 3.56, 2Y GPA for Queen's 3.67 ABS: Likely the strongest suit in my application. Lots of long term EC's. SSHRC in Master's, tw
  7. Hello all, I'm in a bit of a pickle right now when it comes to making a decision between which masters program I should go to. For the record, I think both of them are fantastic options. University of California - Irvine (UCI) - M.S. Biomedical Engineering (Thesis based) or McGill - M.S. Experimental Surgery (Non-thesis based) --------------- Other Stats: uGPA is a solid 3.72 MCAT is a 512 Didn't get into a medical school this cycle Waitlisted at 3 US MD schools, but eventually denied from them. ---------------- I have a keen intere
  8. What are the advantages, disadvantages, and benefits to completing a PhD or masters in conjunction with your MD? Does it offer advantages in the future? I was considering doing the MD/PhD program but I don't really have a desire at this point to do lab work/research. Are there other things you can do with your MD/PhD? I would be open to hearing advice from anyone who decided to do the program or the reasons people decided to not do it. Thanks everyone!
  9. So I'm in the midst of applying for masters right now (backup plan) and was wondering what the pros and cons would be to doing a clinical research master or basic sciences masters (somewhere in disease/cancer). Yes my end goal is to be an MD, but which type of masters would get me further in my career if I were to stick with research after med school? Things I'm looking at are productivity/time management/costs/usefulness/opportunities/residency placements. I have a significant amount of experience in basic sciences, however I would like to try out a masters in clinical research, a
  10. I will be starting my MPH in September 2019 - it is a 16 month program. Is it possible to get an admission if I have not yet completed my program? I understand that I will not receive extra points for a Masters degree as some med schools offer, but I just wanted to make sure my chances are not hindered if my course-based Masters program is in progress.
  11. Here is my unusual path to graduation (I don't know if GPA is calculated in the same way over all schools): Year 1: UBC - General Science --- Year 2: Université de Montréal - Neuroscience --- Years 3-5: Université de Montréal - Computer Science --- I would like to apply to medical school after my Master's (most likely ending in 2022), but I'm currently unsure where my best options lie. I realize that currently, my portfolio is not comptetitive. I would like to know if it can be made competitive, without doing a second bachelor's. Should I ai
  12. I am determined to attend medical school in Canada. Would love any advice regarding the few options I have Currently studying for the MCAT and going into the fourth year of my honours Science undergrad- 1st year GPA 3.21 (technically 4.5 course load, including my initial grade and my improved grade for my 1 repeated course) 2nd year GPA 3.44 3rd year GPA 3.63 I'm assuming these are my options (based on years of obsessive research on forums lmao): 1) Do a 5th year. Attain 3.8+ in year 4 & 5. Apply to Western in my 5th year. If unsuccessful, complete a master's progra
  13. I clearly need to go back to school to bring my gpa up. I'm just conflicted on what would be the best route to do so. I initially planned to go to ubc pharmacy as the courses would be relevant to the medical field and it would be a good back-up career. But apparently there are easier ways to improve ones gpa. I need to stay in B.C as I am already invested in building up my extracurriculars here. So far the options I've found are: -SFU post bacc diploma (criminology looked interesting, gerontology is relevant to me because I have experience with seniors) -UBC masters - I hav
  14. Hi, I have applied to the MSc global health program at McMaster for 2019-20. I am wondering if anyone has heard back yet or know when will that be? Thanks!
  15. Hi all, I'm currently in my 6th year of undergrad. I picked up an additional degree during my 5th year because my main issue was my GPA (very uncompetitive GPA through years 1-4). I finally reached a 3.7 in my 5th year (cutoff for Western SWOMEN) and I am currently above cutoff (or it appears that I'll be above cutoff) when I finish this year. I understand that my GPA isn't the most competitive at the moment, but from what I heard it can qualify for Western SWOMEN. I'll have to rewrite my MCAT again this summer (was off by one point overall; appears to be the reason for my rejection
  16. I applied to the MPH: Social and Behavioural Health Sciences program for Fall 2019. The website says decisions will be given in March. However, Last year's cohort received their decisions mid-April. I was wondering if anyone who has aplied to any of the MPH programs at Dalla Lana for 2019 or in past years know when 2019's decisions will be snet out. Or if you would like to share when you heard back from them in previous years, that would be extremely helpful as well. If you received a rejection, then please share some statistics of why you think you may have been rejected so it
  17. Hey, Im in my 5th year at western trying to boost my average. My cGPA is bad, around 3.5, my wGPA is around 3.8. 1st and 2nd year were mediocre, 3rd was decent, 4th was good and 5th is good so far but I need advice as to what I should be doing for this upcoming september. My MCAT is not great (501), but im non-trad in my program and im unsure if I could get a meaningful increase with a second rewrite. I've been looking into low tier US MD schools (just bought MSAR), and I see every school needs Organic Chemistry which I did not do because it would kill the GPA I am working my ass off to try an
  18. Anyone know of any 1-year masters programs, especially in health/sciences, ideally course-based and online (would like to be able to work to pay off student loans and be able to stay at home to save on rent)?
  19. Hi! For all of the other OT QY Applicants who have received interview invitations, would you be willing to meet up to practice going over MMI practice questions?
  20. Hi all, Long story short I'm doing my masters and then trying to apply to apply to med. The two lab I'm debating between are like this: Lab 1 - Super prestigious (better reference letter) but longer projects (with more impact) medically oriented. Super low chance of getting first author, probably get 1 middle author paper. Two middle author papers if lucky. Lab 2 - Solid lab, publishes a ton, not medically oriented but still biology (molec in animals). Students usually get at least 1-2 first author publications and have chances for other pubs. I'm planning on applying to U
  21. Hi! I'm currently in my 4th year of undergrad in Health Sciences at Western and I was hoping I could get some feedback on how to boost my chances at getting into medical school in Canada (preferably Ontario). I realize my stats are quite terrible compared to many other applicants but I've been hell bent on medicine since I experienced a disability at the age of 4 and any advice would be greatly appreciated. This whole process is confusing and it doesn't help that there aren't really any guidance counselors that will help with this process (for free). Age: 21, M GPA: 3.0 from 1st t
  22. Hey Guys, This is for a friend of mine: She has a GPA of around 3.7+, with the adjustment for the worst year drop and everything. She also has done a course-based masters for two years, at the end of which, she's done her Thesis. Her GPA for the grad school is 3.85. Can anyone shed light on what her chances are for her to get an interview invite from UofT ? Is this 0.2 bonus real ? Any comment would be highly appreciated.
