  1. Hey guys - just realized I may have screwed my chances at medical school. I applied to queens and western. My third and fourth years are the 3.88 and 3.87 respectively. I did a fifth year in 2020 and took three courses, which was my biggest, dumbest mistake because I ended up with a calculated 3.5 gpa here. I am terrified Queens will take this year and my fourth year as my last two, leaving me at a 3.68 gpa. Have I screwed myself over?

  8. Hello everyone, Let us present ourselves: we are student ambassadors of McGill Medicine. Not too long ago, we were in the applicant seats and we sympathize with the anxiety that comes along with that role. In fact, some of us roamed the pages here at premed101 and asked questions of our own in the hope of elucidating some of our worries about the application process and student life at McGill Medicine. We are glad to tell you that we are happy with our choice and this has brought us to pilot this Q&A initiative, where we hope to give back some of the good advice we have received alon

  10. Hi all, Christopher here from the Pluripotent Premed podcast, and creator of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca. After overwhelmingly positive feedback on 'Season 1' of the podcast that I co-host with a medical school classmate of mine, Ziad, we are back in the (virtual) studio and recording new weekly episodes for Season 2! If you haven't heard of Pluripotent Premed yet, feel free to check us out on any major podcasting platform (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.) or on our Facebook page. We are two medical students in Canada who host a completely free podcast that is designed to guide premed s
  11. Thought it might be good to start a thread on the changes that each Canadian dental school is implementing for the upcoming 2021 application cycle such as accepting/not accepting winter 2020 grades etc. Western (emailed): Not accepting Winter 2020 grades, accepting Fall 2019 indefinitely. Emailed and they explained it as basically if Fall 2019 meets their 'threshold' GPA and it is one of your 'best' 2 years then it will be counted. No longer need a 'B' in the prereq's, no longer need an in-lab component for Orgo Chem indefinitely. UofT (emailed): No upcoming admissions commit
  12. Hello, I was wondering if someone might have some insight into this. I am currently hoping to apply to Nursing at U of T in the fall of 2020. I know the GPA calculation says the last 5 full course loads, but I took was more courses then that in my final year. Specifically, I took a 2 full and a half full courses in the summer (I've already asked and those will count), and took a full course load in the fall/winter session (another 5 full courses). I asked admissions which courses from the fall/winter term they would count, but I couldn't get a clear answer. Perhaps that's because they won
  13. Hey everyone! Firstly, a HUGE congratulations to all applicants in the 2019/2020 cycle who finished their interview at UBC during the past couple of weekends!! Take the time to pat yourselves on the back for finishing up with the stressful portion of your applications! It's just a matter of waiting until May -- I sincerely wish you all the best of successes no matter what happens. I can definitely understand how stressful the wait can be though, so if anyone would like to chat via PM, please feel free to message me. It's much easier said than done, but try to distract yourself with so
  14. Hi there, I'm in a unique academic situation ... A couple of years ago when I attended Ontario Tech University (formally known as UOIT), I had some low grades permanently removed from my academic record (I know it sounds improbable, but it's true; special circumstances permitted it). My cGPA increased after it was recalculated and then I transferred to Laurier where I am finishing my undergrad. My question is... since I had grades wiped from my record, would those grades by any chance show up when my cGPA is calculated by medical school admissions? The removed classes no
  15. Hi everyone, I was hoping for a bit of insight on my chances for the upcoming cycle! I'm quite new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post - forgive me if I've gotten it wrong! I'm in Ontario. my last two years of undergrad calculate out to a 3.88, but my CGPA is a 3.62. I am applying to Canadian schools exclusively this year and I'm planning to choose those which take your last two/two best years.. I know Western and Queens, but would be really grateful for some other suggestions of where I could apply. I'm taking the MCAT in late August. Not sure if it changes

  17. This is the second time I took the DAT as I did a practice one early on in my undergrad. I am planning to apply to US schools this summer and Canadian schools this Fall. Please give me your honest opinions! I did well in some sections but not the best in others. Here are my scores: Reading 24 Bio 21 Chem 18 Science Total 19 AA 21 PAT 19 MDT 15 Overall my CGPA is 3.8 it would be higher for schools that drop your worst year. Uoft/UBC: 3.89, Western 3.92, Mcgill 3.8 I also have a ton of EC's, leadership experience, and dental volunteering/
  18. Hello all. I applied to Bloomberg Nursing in December, and I am just curious to see when they will start releasing admissions. If you have heard anything, please let us know. If you don't mind, please include your statisitcs for others to see, and whether you were accepted, rejected, or waitlisted. Thanks!
  19. Hello! I'm VERY interested in applying for the DMD program at UBC and have a few questions about admissions. A bit of background on me... I completed an undergrad degree in Business with a 3.2 GPA. I have yet to take the pre-reqs for the DMD program at UBC, as well as write the DAT and CASPER test before applying for the program. After my experiences I realized that dental is what I want to do and I'm aiming to complete the pre-reqs with good grades and complete the DAT and CASPER with high marks. I'm afraid that with my 3.2 undergrad GPA I have no chances of getting into the p
  20. I remember last year when I was waiting to hear back, I obssessed over things like admissions statistics for previous years. I thought some of you might find this interesting - I've attached the admissions statistics for my class, the Class of 2022. It covers: Applicant pool Seat distribution (SWOMEN / non-SWOMEN / Indigenous) Gender Highest degrees of admitted students Academic metrics (GPA and MCAT) Age Residence University attended previously AdmissionStatistics_Medicine_Classof2022.pdf
  21. Hello everyone! I am a 2nd year undergraduate student in Canada majoring in Biology. I’m currently on a co-op term (I just completed my first term of 2nd year) and taking a course in quantum. I have a lot of volunteering experience, and I’m currently volunteering at 2 hospitals. I have yet to do research or shadow a pharmacist/doctor. My cGPA is around 3.0 (73.5%, ) and I’m considering pharmacy school in the U.S! Does anyone know the pharmacy schools in the U.S that accept Canadian applicants? Additionally, how competitive is the entrance into these schools (GPA-wi
  22. Hey guys, I'm about to finish CEGEP soon and I'm still very confused about the path i'm supposed to follow in order to get in medschool since i'm from Quebec! I even spoke to Diane Parent .

But now i'm reading what you guys wrote here and i'm lost.. haha can i just do my pre-requires and apply as an undergrad at Uottawa? Or do I have to go get a BAC frst? thanks
  23. Hi I have applied to several private schools Northeastern US schools, U of T and western, and Irish schools. I'm wondering if anyone can comment on my chances. I have not yet received any interviews from US schools and don't know if I have missed the boat. Degree: BScH in Life Sciences with Minor in Computing Academics: cGPA: 3.51/4.0 science GPA: 3.48/4.0 Best two years for western: 90.75% Canadian DAT: AA: 20 BIO: 19 CHEM: 20 PAT: 22 RC: 20 TS: 19 ECs: -100 hours shadowing -1 summer working in dental office -1 summer in neuroscience research -1 s
  24. Just a little rant on med-school admissions. Anyone else frustrated that medicals schools have such vague prerequisites requirements? For a program that is amongst the most competative i'd expect some clear instructions on what marks to get in what specific classes...when I first researched requirements it said that you can be ANY major you want and no required courses...how does that make any sense? A least give prospective students some recommendations on what to take to relate/prepare for medical school material. When I first decided to go the med-school route I was so damn confused on what
