  1. Hello everyone I need help choosing a university that will offer me better opportunities for grad schools. I'm hearing so much different things from everywhere, so I thought i'd ask here. I was wondering which program/university of these would be better for med school in terms of networking, opportunities (research/volunteer/clubs), gpa? They both seem to have their pros and cons, but I am stuck between them. Thank you so much, in advance! ---- Both will cost the same for me in the long run and I'm going to have to get some part-time jobs near the universities to help me pa
  2. Basically what the title says. First Year GPA: 1.88 (I know... but my grandpa passed away during first semester exams and the registrar wouldn't let me withdraw) Second Year= 3.72 -----> Not including summer classes = 3.45 Third Year: 3.9x (did not take summer classes) Fourth year: TBD (assuming I can get another 3.9x) My MCAT Score is a 515 and ECs are pretty decent. I know UBCs policy will help me get 30 credits off my first year (+ bonus for being IP) and queens takes your best two years. So, those are my top two schools to get into. Any advice will be gre
  3. Annual Bulletin! 2016 highlights: 2016 Canadian statistics - 64 matriculants, 263 applicants. Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan update provincial policy - US DOs now have full unrestricted practice rights in all of Canada! CaRMs 2016 update - British Columbia follows Ontario - US DOs lose CMG status in these two provinces, now match as IMGs starting 2016 onwards. WES and translation required for French Quebec Universities / French transcripts. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  4. Bonjour! Je suis à ma 4e session en Sciences nat et j'ai une cote r compétitive. Cependant, dépendemment du CASPer et des MMIs il y a des grandes chances que je sois refusée. C'est pourquoi je me demande à quel bac appliquer à l'université (en sachant que j'hésite entre neurosciences et microbiologie, mais je suis ouverte aux autres comme bsbp ou biomed). J'ai entendu parler d'un certain étalon des cotes à l'UdeM et personnellement je ne veux pas choisir un bac qui pourrait nuire à mon GPA à cause de la moyenne de la classe. Quels sont vos conseils? Merci!!
  5. Hey, Anyone in the Queens Health Sci program here? If yes, how do you like it? I heard it’s similar to McMaster’s Health Sci.
  6. Hi, I am currently a grade 12 student in high school. I have a very strong work ethic and currently have an average in the 90s. I am not too concerned with the major, as long as I am able to maintain a high GPA and have all the requirements necessary to go to medical school post-undergrad. If anyone goes to Guelph or Queens University and has a close to 4.0 GPA, or is currently in medical school and did your undergrad at either, would you recommend it there? If so: 1) What program were you in? 2) How were the professors there? Were any of them unfair? 3) Did you l
  7. Like the title says, will psych research be preferable on a med app if I'm genuinely interested in it as opposed to biomedical research that I would otherwise be doing to check a box? Thank you in advance!
  8. Hi guys! I was wondering if kinesiology would be a good premed undergraduate program? I am fairly interested in it and I heard it is not too hard, but it doesn't seem like a valuable degree to have. What are your guys's thoughts?
  9. Hi, I would have some questions for the admission in MD in the University of Ottawa. I am currently a university student in Quebec so I would like to apply in the French stream of the MD program next year. Our province was highly touched with Covid-19 so our universities gave us the right to apply to the Pass/Fail option in our winter 2020 classes. As mentioned in the admission criteria of UofOttawa, to be eligible, only one class Pass/Fail per semester is allowed. Is this rule still applicable with the circumstances of covid-19 for next year admissions? Also, I've changed programs

  11. Hi everyone ! Fellow premed here I was wondering if there are any youtube channels you have been watching for motivation/ what it is like in med school you enjoy watching!
  12. I'm finishing my BComm in marketing this academic year and am planning on taking all mcat/med school prereqs the following year. I am considering completing these courses at cegep level— reason being that my current university tends to split up the lab and theory component of a class to be taken in separate semesters plus the level of difficulty is likely greater at university level. I know a few med students who obtained bachelors in degrees outside of science, went back to cegep to complete their prereqs and ended up attending Montreal-based medical schools (i know McGill, University of Mont
  13. So I really want to get into medical school and I want to push through my last two years of biomedical science at York knowing i gave it my all. So if anyone who's obtained 3.9s/4.0 could share their study methods and tips, that would be much appreicated.
  14. Hi everyone ! Fellow premed here :) I was wondering if there are any youtube channels you have been watching for motivation/what its like in med school?
  15. Salut, j'ai été accepté en kiné et en génie logiciel à Udem et à Poly respectivement, mais je me demande lequel choisir. Les deux m'intéressent autant (mis à par que je kiff moins la physique). Je sais que génie logiciel serait de loins le meilleurs choix au niveau du plan B (meilleur salaire, très bon classement, beaucoup de possibilités de carrières, etc.), mais j'ai entendu dire que si tu veux continuer en médecine c'est plus facile d'avoir un bon GPA en kiné qu'en génie. Quel choix devrait-je faire ? Disons que c'est pas bon comme pre med, est-ce que ce serait un bon tremplin pour entrer
  16. I am looking to choose a program between these offers. My end goal is med school, but i want a university where it’ll be easy to achieve that goal and gpa without becoming depressed and drained from studying 24/7. I would also like a good atmosphere and one that is welcoming to diverse students as i am a POC. Which program is best suited for me?

  18. I am I med sci and I don't know if I should take physics 1028 (with Poepping) or physics 1301 (with Wong). So, could someone help me? It would be greatly appreciated. BTW I haven't taken grade 12 physics.
  19. Hi! I'm looking for some advice on the confidential assessment form and choosing references for OMSAS. I'm a Quebec applicant and QC schools don't ask for reference forms/letters so I don't know too much about this. I saw on the OMSAS and Ontario med school websites that we're asked to provide one academic- or employment reference and one personal (non-academic) reference. I've been able to get a professor of mine and my research supervisor to be my academic references (they both know me pretty well). I've also asked my manager of 2 years (I work in retail) who I'm really close to to also
  20. Hi, so I may have the opportunity to go on a wildlife conservation mission in Thailand or Bali, however, I can also choose to go on a medical mission/learning thing in Vietnam or India. The wildlife conservation mission is really cool and more hands on while the medical missions are more seminar and workshops. For medical school, which would be a better option? It seems intuitive that the medical mission would be the better choice, but I feel that it might be very standard (like many people have done it) whereas the elephant conservation mission may be more unique. Thoughts?
  21. For premed and med school, do they value competencies in foreign languages like French?
  22. Hi, I'm still in high school and I'm looking at which "premed" program to apply to next year that focuses on preparing students for medicine. I know that any program is good as long as you can get a good GPA and high MCAT scores, but are they any specific programs (in Canada) that gear specifically towards premed? Thanks in advance!
  23. Since professors have to maintain their class average around 60%, would programs with a high cut-off from high school be harder since the professor's will need to make assessments more difficult because all of the students will be high achievers. I'm asking this because I want to go to medical school and need a high GPA which is why I am conflicted between a program like western med sci which is full of keeners vs something like York Kinesiology. I know you probably see many annoying people like me on this website but please bear with me.
  24. I have gotten offers from both programs but I am having trouble choosing one. Both campuses are absolutely gorgeous and they are both similar science courses. So, the only deciding factor left is the ease of getting a high GPA. So, if anyone knows in which program it would be easier for me to achieve a higher GPA, please let me know. Thanks.
  25. My GPA's not stellar but my MCAT and ECs are decent. What would be my chances to get into med school in Ontario? I'm in Life Sciences at McMaster. Would taking a masters be a good idea? And if so, which degree should I be thinking about? First yr: 3.3 Second yr: 3.87 Third yr: 4.0 MCAT: 525 ECs: Hospital shadowing, exec position for Doctors without Borders, Global Medical Brigades, research, design reviewing for devices for patients with disabilities, multiple awards for social justice debates and research competitions Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
