  1. Hey everyone, I'm currently a third year undergrad, I haven't taken the MCAT yet but I'm feeling confident about it, and my current GPA is 3.5 (1st year: 3.23, 2nd year: 3.83) and this year it should be around 3.95. I was wondering because of my low GPA, how competitive my EC's would make me; I'm not sure how strong they are and I have absolutely no clue how to improve them, if anyone could offer any advice I would really appreciate it. President & founder of social justice club, legal affairs specialist (volunteer) for maternity research company, 3 case competitions (and poster presentations), exec for 2 health disparities clubs, mentor through two different programs, produce music during my freetime (hobby) and run 3 blogs; one health-related, one social justice-related, one about advice on how to apply to university/how to study effectively. I've worked at a telecommunications company for one summer and I've played the piano for 12 years, but don't have any references for it since it's also a hobby. I just started volunteering at a Hospice and have an interview for a distress centre line soon. I don't have any research or publication experience and I've sent out over 400 emails this season with no success, so I'm not sure what to do in that department. What I can say is that everything I've done so far has provided me with a meaningful experience that reinforced my desire to go to med school, but I'm not sure if I have enough on my plate to qualify to apply for this year. If anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it, I'm feeling kind of burnt out and lost right now and beating myself up for not having done more. I'm in my third year and basically have no research or volunteering experience lol. I'm fine with doing a masters or a gap years if it comes down to it. Thank you in advance!
  2. I'm currently at the end of my first gap year and planning on applying to MD/PhD programs next year. I was initially planning on going the PhD-only route and therefore have quite a bit of research experience but not much of the traditional clinical/premed ECs. What are considered "good" ECs for MD/PhD applications/how much experience do you need? Are clinical ECs (eg volunteering, shadowing etc) as heavily weighted in these applications compared to MD-only? I know some schools are considered EC-heavy but which ones put less weight on ECs?
  3. I'm about to go into my 4th in biomedical science at uOttawa and I'm in a French extended program. Here's my info: - 1st year GPA: 3.3 2nd year GPA: 3.9 3rd year GPA: 3.86 wGPA with OMSAS: 3.78 - Applying to the French stream at uOttawa and NOSM - EC's: French/English tutor, pianist at a church, choir, band, physiotherapy clerk, volunteered at a hospital, piano teacher at elementary school, private tutor (very brief), Sunday lesson teacher for kids, etc. - I live in Ottawa A lot of my EC's are centered around music and tutoring. I don't have 32+ entries like most people and honestly, I feel like my GPA is quite mediocre for med school. I am going to try my hardest to raise it in my 4th year and then write the MCAT (so I can apply to more schools if uOttawa doesn't work out). But, right now what are my chances of even getting an interview? Thanks a lot in advance!
  4. Hi guys, I am very new to this community, so sorry if this question has been asked before. I saw in many of your posts that students have publications (as leading or 2nd, 3rd authors) and conference papers which is really amazing. I wonder if anyone can provide some insights on how can undergrad get their research published. (i.e. is the published work done in summer or you have to stick to a project longer). Thank you so much in advance!!
  5. 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 summer in human mobility research with computing element -President of club that raises money for children with CHD (started club's first conference) -2 (going on 3) semesters as TA in computing
  6. What exactly do first and second year students generally have on their resume/CV when applying for such programs? As they generally tend to have minimal work or lab experiences, but they just put their ECs? Moreover, how much of the likelihood of finding a position is based off your GPA. Would I have to maintain my GPA and ECs the way that they are to would I have to add something else into the mix?
