  1. I would like advices and guidance on the career I'd like to pursue; which is becoming a Pediatrician. These are decisions I've made so far: 1. I've completed my BSc Honours degree in Microbiology. 2. I've applied for my Master's degree in medical Microbiology and Immunology and also Master of Public Health. Now, where I am a bit confused, is the turn of events till I enroll into pediatrics. I initially thought that enrolling into a medical Master's course was going to be a prerequisite to enroll into pediatrics, but I researched, and it doesn't look like it is going to be as smooth as I think, how silly of me. What do you recommend? What are the steps I should embark on, inorder to reach my goal to become a Pediatrician? Any advice is quite welcome.
  2. Hi there!!! I'm on course to finish a research-based MSc (2-year program) at UTSG in early 2022. My life sci undergrad at U of T (4 years, full course load every year) really screwed me over and the effects still haunt me now through my GPA which is far from competitive (3.3 exactly). Things were going well until my 4th year when my family started going through some hard times financially and I struggled to balance work/school. As a result, my fourth year marks were relatively poor and dropped my cGPA. I did my MCAT between my 3rd/4th year, and meet the cut-offs (126/125/127/126). I don't mind rewriting the MCAT if necessary. I did a MSc hoping that it would offset my low undergrad grades, but I'm still having major doubts about whether or not this was the right call. The good thing is, I'm realizing I actually enjoy doing research, so I wouldn't mind dedicating time to a PhD. I still want to get an MD. Here's what I'm considering - any insight or advice would be appreciated! It would mean the world Which option makes the most sense??? Should I just apply for a MD/PhD? Do I even stand a chance or is my application getting tossed out? Should I apply for a PhD and complete that, then apply to an MD program afterwards - would that improve my chances? Should I do a second undergrad degree (really my last resort)? Is there any other option here that I'm missing? I'm so lost and worried. Please Premed101 help me out!!!
  3. Hey folks, I have a situation, and was wondering what're my chances ( I am open to out of country ideas) I did my undergraduate degree in the sciences, really late I am 30yo. In my first two years, I had a really really hard time adjusting to university courses and my GPA was horrendous. I thought that was it, any chances I had at become an emergency doctor down the toilet. I gave up on it and thought to just finish my bachelors and get a job. In my third year, I drastically improved and my GPA went up (got 3.7/4.0 that year). And in fourth year I managed to get a 3.9/4.0. I took a year off after second year to get some science-work experience (in our school you get course credit for this) and worked as a lab tech in a health lab. I was good at research so I applied for a Master's in medical sciences and am now doing research in a cardiology lab at Schulich school of Medicine (Western). I got a scholarship and am getting awarded at conferences and am doing well in research. But...in the medical school I see doctors all the time, and its just a reminder that was the career I wanted. I don;t want to give up on being an emergency doctor. I am studying for my MCAT at the moment to write the exam in May. I was looking at medical school admissions and it is really complicated for graduate students, plus taking repeated courses into account (I retook a 2nd year course in my 3rd year). My 2 years of undergrad that I messed up puts me at a huge disadvantage since my cumulative uGPA is a 3.2 (based on AMCAS), my GPA in my last two years is a 3.8/4.0 and my grad school GPA is a solid 3.9/4.0. Plus every school has different ways of taking repeated courses into account. Western is out because I retook a course in one of my two top years. I am not sure what to do, I know dal, queens and uofc take the top two years OR top two years + graduate courses. I was wondering if I should give US MD or DO schools a shot? I am also open to the carribean...I know they have a bad rep but I am only thinking of SGU or AUC (top two). Australia/Ireland are out, there is no way I can afford that or my family can. I am almost 35 and can't go back to undergrad. Do I have a chance at being an emergency dr or should I flush that dream down the toilet and go for a PhD-->Post doc route? thanks folks.
