  1. Hi! I am planning to take this course to complete biochem prerequisite for med school. I was just wondering if anyone has taken this course? and was it difficult? any advice would be appreciated!
  2. I’ll start by unapologetically saying that I wasn’t given a fair chance in life in regards to pursuing my academic ambitions (specifically my 1st undergraduate degree years). During my first degree I had 2 brothers that had strokes and passed away. I was routinely involved in caring for them and had to juggle school at the same time. Sadly my academic standing suffered greatly due to these family issues. Anyhow, I’m living a new life now and things have settled. I am no longer in depression related to my brothers deaths and want to continue to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor.
  3. If anyone has interviewed at UBC and has any tips, suggestions and insight as to what the interview was like and potentially even how to prepare it would be greatly appreciated!
  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. 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.
  6. Hi there. Im going to start grade 12 in September and Im looking into universities. I really want to go to medical school one day but I have concerns for my bachelors. I am a decent student, I get high 80's and sometimes 90's depending on the course. I think that If I apply to Health Sci, i'll have a better chance of getting in because Bio Med and Med Sci is sooo competitive. At the same time I worried it'll be a disadvantage to my learning if I take Health Sci! If I take Health Sci, will I still be able to go to medical school. The goal is to be a paediatrician or maybe even an anesthesiologi
  7. 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!
  8. I'm interested in the MHS Global health economics at Johns Hopkins, wondering if it will add to my application to med school?? Does anyone know/can shed light on this
  9. Hello, I know everyone must be tired of seeing these types of "what are my chances" posts but I could really use some advice. I am currently in my last year of my undergrad at UofC and eligible to graduate this spring. Unfortunately, med school has only become a dream of mine in the last year or so and my first two years GPA does not reflect this desire at all. Here is a breakdown: I have taken 5 courses each semester for my entire degree. GPA: 1st year: 2.73 2nd year: 3.02 3rd year: 3.61 4th year: 4.00 EC's Do pracitucms count for this? If so, I
  10. Hello, I was wondering how important it is to do a thesis in my senior year of undergrad (my program doesn't require it for graduation). I have no research experience and I am going into my 4th year this fall. Would it be better for me to start looking for volunteer positions in labs and then do a small independent study rather than doing a thesis? I'm also very discouraged at this point to find a supervisor as it is fairly late in the year. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thank you!!
  11. Hi All, So I've been accepted into physio at Ottawa U. However I was wondering if there were any anglophone Physio students out there who could sort of give me an idea of how hard the french is. I have a working knowledge of french and can speak well enough, however I am just really unsure about the course content and style of teaching and if I would be able to keep up with it all. I have never taken a university level course in french and have not been in a french class in 4 years. Just looking for some advice! Thanks
  12. I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
  13. Hi all, Long time lurker of the forums as I gave serious thought to medicine, but finally recently decided to pull the trigger on it for real, as I've decided it's where I'd ultimately like to end up in life. I've applied (unsuccessfully) before, but was ambivalent about my intentions, so I don't think my heart was in it and I didn't do all I could to give myself the best shot. This time I'd like to do all I can to get it right. I've just finished a PhD in immunology in Toronto (Ontario's also my province of origin) and am pursuing the PhD to MD path, but seeing as how I wasn't always set
  14. I wanted some peoples opinions on a situation that I am in. I've applied to medical school twice in Canada and have never gotten an interview. I have a cGPA of 3.90, an MCAT score of 515, I am a Canadian citizen and I have recently finished my Bachelor's at McGill University. I have recently been accepted to a British MBBS program at Newcastle University Medicine (Malaysia). I wanted to ask people's opinions on whether it would be more beneficial for me me to get started with medicine in Malaysia now and eventually go through equivalencies and work in Canada or should I find a job or apply for
  15. hi, basically, i'm here to ask for advice on route options for getting into a medical school, based on my current situation School: first did practical nursing at an Ontario college (currently an RPN) and just graduated from an Ontario university with a bachelor of science in nursing (BScN) (nclex-rn to be taken shortly) - university gpa: 2.3 - mcat: haven’t taken it yet and no prep started yet - medically related experience: nursing school clinicals/ working as an RPN - extracurriculars: barely any volunteer experience (at least not recently), didn’t join any clubs in
  16. Hello everyone, I wanted to start a new topic about your experience at CEGEP because I would like to have a better idea of this whole new world. Please tell me which CEGEP you went to, how you managed to get through it and if you have any tips (schedule, courses, extracurricular). Also, I heard that it's possible to take some courses during the summer or even during another semester. The thing is, I heard that it is not recommended to take your CEGEP courses in more than 4 semesters, otherwise some med universities will refuse your application. Could you please give me more deta

  18. I'm new here and would appreciate any advice on whether I'd be better off doing a 5th year or a research focused masters program. Currently in my 4th year of undergrad. Ontario resident. Very low cGPA: ~ 3.32 (3.35/2.83/3.8) on the OMSAS scale. I'm confident going into this year and am aiming for 3.95+. On the right track so far. I wrote the MCAT this August and got a 516 (131/127/128/130). I'm likely going to retake to try and get a 129+ CARS. I applied to Western and McMaster this year but am not expecting anything. Will be applying to Queens, McMaster, Western and Dalhousie nex
  19. I love you all in advance for your honest feedback, albeit it be as harsh as Canada’s winters or as sweet as the peach drink from Timmies. Enough with the bad analogies, here’s the summary: 24 years old. Currently in 2nd gap year Ontarian post grad, working to reduce that $30k debt. Fluent, not native, in French. Native in Russian, basic Italian GPA: 4.0 after McGills conversion. 3.95 otherwise. ECs: -honours thesis in a molec/biochem lab (results credited during supervisor’s conference presentation; he also happens to be a past department head, univ prof emeritus a
  20. Hi all, I am planning out my fall semester and was thinking about taking 3 or 4 online courses to increase my GPA for applications in December. Do you have any recommendations for online courses that are worth considering particularly in the 3rd year or higher? I heard good things about Athabasca courses but cannot find any specific threads. All the best
  21. Hey everyone, I was recently admitted into 2 medical schools after 3rd year of undergrad and I started a blog to help other students out and provide advice about the MCAT and med school process. I recently made a blog post about MCAT preparation material, and will be making more MCAT posts until the summer is closing, and then will get onto OMSAS and CASPer advice. Check it out and feel free to contact me from the site if you want certain topics covered in future posts! https://medstudentgunner.wordpress.com/2018/07/21/mcat-how-to-study-for-it/

These are my stats:GPA: 3.704CDAT: 19 AA19 BIO19 CHEM19 TS20 RC16 PATI've got more than 100 hours of shadowing.

  24. Hi everyone, i recently considered going to all saints school of medicine in the Caribbean. I just wanted to know if this would be a good move? Also anyone who has been here, could you please tell me how your experience was?
  25. I have a Bachelors of Business Administration and have worked in accounting for three years. I really want to make a change and found OT/PT as potential areas that interest me: I get to help people better the quality of their lives. I get to move around during the day instead of sitting in a cubicle. I get to enjoy talking to new people on a regular basis. I have marketable and applicable skills outside of the corporate institution. What I'm concerned about is that I may not have academic reference since it's been three years and I haven't been in touch with any of my professors. Has any
