  1. Hey everyone! Sorry for the long post in advance but I would really appreciate everyone’s help!! Here is my background: ~3.4 cGPA (life Sci- years; 3.7 in 4th year, lower in other years), completed my bachelor of education degree right after, however this degree was pass or fail, so no grades and strong ECs (a range of things, been committed to a few for a while). Writing the MCAT this August (working full time and studying for it).I’ve been working as a teacher for the past 2 years (science and special Ed) and am hoping to go into Med school. I’ve always kind of wanted to go but didn’t take it seriously during my undergrad. While I enjoy teaching, I always find myself drawn to the the content regarding the human body or when I read the files for my special needs students, I find myself drawn to their medical reports, past and current- trying to understand their diagnosis and then doing further research about those diagnosis’, the science behind it, the testing involved, kinds of meds involved, the impact of these meds etc. While I want to work with a similar demographic, I want to work with them more from the medical perspective, being actively involved in their health care plans and seeing the impact it has on their everyday lives. So here’s my dilemma. I can apply to UBC with my gpa (I’m a BC resident), but I don’t think I’m competitive at all. I think I need to boost my GPA so I can apply to more schools in Canada (I did my undergrad in Ontario). I’m confused as to what path to take: 1. Take a full year of courses as an unclassified student (boost gpa) (best 2 years option for some schools)2. Do a 2nd undergrad (2 years, boost gpa)3. Purse a masters in education (my salary goes up and it’s good if Med school doesn’t workout for moving up in administration. However, I don’t see myself teaching for the rest of my life- it’s mentally and physically challenging (some of my students are violent) but I don’t find myself intellectually challenged at all. I miss my 4th year Nsci and cardio courses!) How would a masters in education be considered by Canadian med schools? Would my GPA count (I would enroll into one that assigns grades rather than P/F)?I would appreciate any help I could get. There’s a lot of information out there but honestly with full time work and mcat prep, I haven’t had a chance to sit down and do through research. I would appreciate any advice from personal experiences or research you guys can provide!Sorry for the long post, I look forward to seeing what people have to say.
  2. 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.
