  1. About me: I am 30 years old, have Masters(thesis based) in engineering from India. I had been working for the past 5 years as a Web Developer. I recently moved to Canada (Toronto) as a permanent resident. TL;DR: If I want to apply to med school, how can I go about it? I do not have the pre-reqs (as I did my undergrad and graduation in engineering) or any extra-curricular. I have always loved biology and now want to pursue my interest in that field. It has been 10 years on-off since I have been thinking of switching my field but always got lost in the current situations of education,
  2. Bonjour, je sais que les programmes de génie offrent de bonnes CRU à l'UdeM, mais j'ai cru qu'il serait intéressant de créer une sorte d'étalon, spécifique au génie. Donc, étudiant(e)s en génie (ou ex), veuillez svp publier votre GPA, votre CRU calculée par l'UdeM, et votre université. Merci!!
  3. Hello everyone, it's my first time posting on this forum. I'm currently enrolled in engineering at Ryerson University, but am on medical withdrawal. I have completed two full years at Ryerson but since September of 2017 I have been dealing with a chronic illness that has not allowed me to return. I originally planned to pursue either medicine or pharmacy but couldn't afford med school so opted to go for engineering as I have always been interested in the sciences. I've fallen in love with medicine again in this two year span and I feel miserable in my engineering program. I've had a long time
  4. I recently finished my bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at the University of Waterloo and am now working on my master’s degree in the same discipline. I am looking to apply to medical schools in Ontario for 2020 entry and have signed up to write the MCAT on September 19 this year. It’s pretty lonely being a prospective medical student in engineering grad school so I was wondering if there is anyone else in the same boat. If there’s anyone in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, that would be even better.
  5. I am an electrical engineer with seveteen years of power sytem design experience and currently employed as an electrical engineer in USA. I am a Canadian with international education in electrical engineering. My major was power and my experience is all about working with substation design and engineering. I had a very rewarding career throughout my academics as well as through employers. I was 1st class 1st position holder (93% marks) in engineering, gold medal for presenting my final year work, several other awards. I passed my engineering in Sep-1999 and then started my engineering career i
  6. Hi all, I am currently an undergrad computer engineering student going into second year. During my first year, my GPA was 3.88 for the first half, but it dropped to 3.5 during the second half due to my health condition. I was unable to have a full course load during that time for the same reason. I am very interested in medical school, however, and I would like to take biomedical engineering for my minor during undergrad. For extracurricular activities, I am currently involved in three different clubs, but they are mostly academic/research oriented. I am also volunteering as an executive at a
  7. Hi everyone! I just finished my first year of engineering at uCalgary with a GPA of 3.19. I am volunteering at the hospital, and working part-time as a cashier. Are my chances blown now for medical school anywhere in Canada? Also, do med schools look at your average GPA of all 4 years of undergrad or do they only look at the last two years? Thank you!
  8. Hey guys, I am a civil engineering student at UBC in my third year interested in dental school. My question is regarding work/volunteer experience. Since I am in engineering, I do co-op every summer (4-8 month long work terms). Thus, I do not have as much time to do research or volunteer in health science related fields as a science student would. Will this hurt my chances of getting accepted or will my engineering co-op experience be seen as a positive? Should I instead focus my entire summer on volunteering/working in health science related areas? Thanks in advance
  9. Hey everyone, I am a recent grad from engineering and am looking for a change in careers to med. Essentially the question I want to ask is: what should I do in the next year(s) to maximize my chances? Any suggestions/critique is highly welcome! Please excuse me if I include unecessary details below, I am not sure what is eligible for my application and what isn't! Background: I graduated from Engineering Physics at UBC (pretty much a double major of honours physics and electrical/computer engineering) and also minored in honours math. Originally I wanted to go into medical ima
  10. I am currently in grade 12 and always thought i wanted to be a doctor. But in the last year or so i have gained a interest in engineering. At this point i dont know what i want to do. I got into an engineering program at Carleton and was thinking of accepting that then taking the extra classes required to apply to medical school at university of Ottawa if i decide that's what i want to do. Only thing is that everyone says engineering is very hard to get a good GPA with. I want to take this because i want to have a solid backup if i don't get in. only i worried that by choosing this i am ac
  11. Hey everyone! I'm making the dive into medicine and I just wanted to see if anyone else had any ideas that I may have not considered with regards to which schools to apply to and which I have a shot at for a MD program. My background was in the air force as a pilot. I've had some pretty unique life experiences that came with that and have lived in some pretty isolated places. Lots of leadership examples and various academic and professional awards. I started developing a passion for medicine and I have a fair bit of ER from hospital volunteering to shadowing family practices. I've be
  12. Hey guys, I am in my final year of engineering. I originally had planned to go to medical school after finishing my degree but I couldnt keep my marks up. I found some of the courses quite difficult and also some personal trouble that I feel has affected me. Now , I cant even think of applying for medical school as my average is quite low (60s). Its not consistently 60s. My average in the beginning (1st and 2nd year) was low and hence bringing it up since then has been difficult. But, I have been doing good lately and I feel positive about it but realistically, its not enough for medical sc
  13. Hi, I am a 4th year electrical engineering co-op student at the University of Alberta with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 at the moment. I realize that this is barely competitive and would be a bad position from the start if I wanted to change my career path to medicine. In short, I am interested in pursuing medicine so I can be in a work environment where I can be on my feet (rather than in the cube), be around people, and help others and (hopefully) make a difference in their lives. Now, it seems that the only option for change is to take a 2 year second degree. I would preferably g
  14. I'm a Grade 12 Ontario student who got into Waterloo's BME program and life sci at McGill, along with a few other programs, and am having a tough time choosing. I'm interested in going to medical school in the future but would like to have a backup plan in case I don't get in the first year I apply, as I've heard competition for a spot these days is very stiff. I also have many severe food allergies and would have to cook for myself if I went to McGill. With this in mind, would it be significantly harder to get a high GPA in a Waterloo engineering program? Thank you!
  15. First of all let me say that I'm not sure whether Non-Traditional applicants was the most appropriate place to post this. In my view engineering to medicine is considered "non traditional" from all the science majors that apply. Anyway, now that that is out of the way... I am a first year biomedical engineering student at the University of Guelph that is planning to apply to medical school after my degree. I was wondering if any other engineer doctors could relate their experiences as to how they managed to keep up on ECs while at the same time navigating what I've come to realize is a
