  1. 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 them offer doing an additional year of directed study or a stage somewhere. Upon completing the additional year, I would graduate with a full Masters degree. Research isn’t really my favourite, and I would prefer to do a more application-based program, but not if it will hurt my chances, or not improve my chances, at getting into Med/Pharm . Cons to the DESS (possibly?): When I apply during the next application cycle, they will see that I have been working on a DESS instead of a Masters degree (not sure if this one counts as a Con or not, that's why I'm asking here!). I haven’t seen this discussed anywhere else, so if anyone has anecdotes or feedback of any kind to share about this situation, I would really appreciate them!
  2. 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 have absolutely zero interest in research, so I would only consider something with only coursework or practicum options. This seems to leave only a Masters in Public Health which honestly seems boring I'm wondering if anyone has any personal experience, knowledge, or an opinion about the options available.
  3. My undergrad GPA, though it meets the cut-offs isn't competitive. However I have a very good MCAT (97th percentile). I've been thinking of taking additional undergrad courses to try to boost my GPA. I'm debating between UBC's unclassified courses and TRU-Open Learn. I have some questions. 1. Do you guys know if this is a good way to try to increase GPA or if there's a better way? 2. Does anyone have experience with either for the purpose of increasing GPA? Any specific courses I should take? 3. Would you recommend one over the other? Pros a/o cons of UBC unclassified? Pros a/o cons of TRU Open Learn? 4. General thoughts about either or both methods? Thanks.

  6. Any insight on non-degree/special years? I am thinking of doing this to boost GPA at UofT and Queens. Anyone else done this? what the easiest way to guarantee 4.0? I've spent too long in academically rigorous programs, resulting in a GPA that does not convey my abilities. Starting to think this is my only option. Online? Guelph? Queens? Mac? York? Calgary? UBC? Open to all brainstorming/suggestions.
  7. Hey guys! I'm currently in Cegep and did not manage to get into medicine this year (one bad semester for personal reasons brought my R score down). I am thinking of going into physiotherapy next year at mcgill in order to boost my grades/ have a degree that I like as a back-up. Here are my questions: 1) I read for mcgill medicine, I must complete a 90 credit (3 years) program in order to apply. Will my cegep prerequisites still count in my future application? Does physiotherapy include any electives ? (Doesn't seem to have all the prereqs @ university that can be used instead of the prereqs at cegep) 1 Would I have to apply after the three years, or after two (if the third one is in completion). Has anyone managed to get in after three years? From this forum most people seem to get invites during their fourth university year. 2) How quickly can I consider applying to other schools in medicine as well? Must I complete a three-year program for all three (UdeS, UdeM, UdeL)? 3) Can anyone who has done/ is doing physio @ mcgill/ other universities please tell me what to expect and give me suggestions on how to keep a high gpa? For the ones who managed to get into medicine afterwards... any advice? And this might seem really silly but i'd like to partake in research someday but I'm not really sure where to start looking except for the researches conducted at mcgill (which dont interest me all that much). Where can i start looking ? Thank you everyone, any input is really appreciated!
