  1. Hey, I'm finishing up my research based masters in Ontario and have applied to med three times and haven't gotten an interview. My stats are quite poor, but medicine is all I've ever wanted and I don't feel like I would be fulfilled if I tried every option at med. cGPA is around 3.1 but depending on wGPA it's ~3.6 . I have a huge upward trajectory in grades, but still didn't make Western or Queens' cutoff. MCAT is 508 (128/126/126/128). Have a 4.0 in my masters but I'm aware that usually doesn't count for much. I think my ECs are very strong- multiple leadership positions both in resear
  2. Hello! A massive chunk of my life has been dedicated to my sport, so I have like 20 entries relating to it (lol). I definitely don't have the typical premed profile so if there's anyone willing to help I'd massively appreciate it! I want to do my experiences justice and would appreciate any guidance for writing my entries. Please message me if you have experience listing sports on the ABS
  3. Hello everyone, I am a Canadian applicant who graduated in 2018 with a 3.69 cGPA/3.8 GPA to Western/Queen's & 3.7 GPA to US schools. My MCAT is 516 (129/127/130/130) (2019) (Past: 509, 512) and I have a very strong EC and research experience with no publications. I had no interview invites the last 2 years (Canada & US) and I'm afraid it was due to my low GPA for Canadian schools. For US schools, my options were very limited as I did not meet some course pre-reqs, and I understand space is limited for Canadian applicants. I feel like I'm getting no where in my 3rd a
  4. Hi, Sort of a specific question for me but hopefully can help someone in the future: I will be travelling to Tanzania in January and will be unable to get my yellow fever shot because of my MS. I am in the middle of my Saba application and have taken a break until I find out whether I will be able to enter. I have been told that yellow fever is not an entry requirement, but online it says that I is depending on where you are coming from. Although I will not be coming from Tanzania, I will have been there within the last year. Does anyone have any input on my issue? Also, if it is an
  5. Hey guys, I'm a first year student. I recently had the idea of applying for one of the unis in Australia for dent (Queensland most likely). They take in my highschool marks for admission and not my Uni GPA since i would be applying before the end of my first year. This seems like a good idea to save time and avoid Canada's low admission chances. Plus my highschool mark was pretty good (mid 90) so I think I have a decent chance. The only catch is that it's a 400k tuition, with prob 100k more for living expenses (5 year course btw). I was thinking that since I would be graduating at around 24, I
  6. Hi, I'm a high school student applying for university. I am a US citizen and plan to work in the US as a dentist. My question is that if I earn a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) not a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) outside of the US and Canada will I have to attend university for an internationally trained dentist program afterwards, or can I just do the license exam NBDE and immediately work as a dentist in the US? Any help would be appreciated.
  7. This is a little different question: I am thinking to do complete a BDS as my undergrad instead of a science undergrad before applying for a DDS program in Canada/US. Is there any problems I would face in doing so? Will I have to go through extra license exams and processes? So it would be 5 years of a BDS and doing the DAT then 4 years of a DDS then licensing exam The reason I'm thinking to do a BDS undergrad instead of a science undergrad is because with a BDS degree I can still find employment with better pay outside of US/Canada compared to a job with my science degree any
  8. Hi guys, I just have a few questions about international electives. Do you think they are worth the money and time? I'm at McMaster so it would certainly be a plus to squeeze in some travelling time during my electives. Also, if anyone has been matched with a CFMS-IFMSA exchange, what was your experience like? Would you recommend it? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hey everyone, So it's my first time considering applying to American schools and I was hoping someone would be able to share some info about MSU. From what I can see, it looks as though they are relatively Canadian friendly, as anyone who is a Canadian citizen can apply with full consideration given to degrees obtained in Canada. However based on their admission statistics on MSAR, they only accepted 3 from 500 international applicants. Seeing as how MSU doesn't accept non-US citizens, non-US residents or non-Canadian citizens, does that mean in this case Canadians were considered in
  10. Please help. I am an international med student from Bosnia and Herzegovina and final year. I want to apply for elective at McGill in June 2018, Cardiology, Oncology and Gastroenterology as my three choices, through AFMC. I want to know what are my chances in geting this? I would pay this by myself and I am not appying through my uni. I want to know this because if my chances are low, I can appy somewhere else.
  11. Bonjour, Une etudiante international ayant complete son bac s (equivalent du secondaire plus pt une annee de cegep en europe ect) ma demande sil etait preferable quelle sinscrives au cegep ou a un bac a luniversite pour appliquer en medecine par la suite quand elle obtiendra sa residence permanente. Sachant qua luniversite on peut faire la demande pour devenir resident apres 3 ans et apres 2 ans au cegep. Qu'est ce que vous en pensez ?
  12. Hi everyone, I'm so glad I found this forum as I was struggling to locate information regarding student experiences with the U of T MD program on SDN. I've heard that it's extraordinarily competitive for Canadian applicants, not to mention for international applicants, and thus would appreciate any info on whether or not it's worth a try for someone coming from the states. I read somewhere that only 10 internationals are accepted every year, is this true? This likely means that the chances of acceptance in the circumstance I'm the perfect applicant (which I'm not) would still be slim; I wasn't
  13. Hey folks! So I'm currently a 4th year medical student from the UK. Medicine is a 5 year undergraduate course here so I'm only 21 and haven't yet graduated - 2 more years left though (including this one) woo! Following this, I'd do 2 years of residency in the UK ideally before choosing any specialty. I'm currently looking at my future options, one of which is to work in Canada. The only information I know about the medical boards is through all the official information websites - none of which are THAT helpful. So I was wondering if someone here could help me? When is the bes

  15. Hello, Je suis présentement en pleine décision concernant l'université que je vais fréquentée pour mes études en médecine. L'un de mes premiers critères concerne les stages et les sessions à l'international, car je suis en quelque sorte un globe trotter dans l'âme. Donc, d'après mes recherches auprès des pages internet des universités et des étudiants en médecine que je connais, Laval me semble la plus attrayante du côté de l'international en raison de sa simplicité et de son vaste éventail de choix. D'un autre côté, McGill me semble beaucoup plus complexe, puis je n'ai pas vraiment d'info
  16. Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a 4-week international emergency medicine elective sometime during March 2016 (preferred) or April 2016. I am hoping to get good hands-on experience with lots of learning. Do you guys think it would be most beneficial if I go to an English-speaking country only? I'm worried about not getting a full experience if there is a significant language barrier. I have already looked into South Africa and New Zealand a few months ago and they seem to be full from a while back. Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated! T
  17. Hi, I just want to ask though, does U of T Medical School accept the EC's being done in other recognized university? I was already on my third year of studies and I did a lot but then we migrated in Canada way back in 2013 and started at YorkU as first year again. Thanks!
  18. Hey all, AMCAS has verified my transcript, and has labelled all my courses as either 3 or 6 credit hours. However, it seems that medical schools require 8 credit hours for certain courses that include lab. When I was putting my courses into AMCAS, I specifically stated something like "Biology....and Lab", but I was only given 6 credit hours for these lab courses. Any other Canadian applicants have this problem, and what did you do to fix it? Thanks
  19. Hey guys, In need of much advice here. Dont have the best GPA and want to be realistic. I am considering Australian schools atm, but the tuition is so ridiculous that I want to cry in a fetal position. Ideally I will spend the next two years to immigrate to Canada and then apply for medicine, but if I really don't have a chance I feel that I should invest my time pursuing other international schools. Doing a second degree on top of immigration will consume at least 4 years of my life before I can even apply... (2yr immigration + at least 2 yr degree.. and with no guarantee.. ) I deci
  20. Hi, I would like to start off by introducing myself - I am a Canadian high school student from Calgary, Alberta, and I would like to study medicine in Ireland or in the UK. (I know the deadline for UK med schools was around 2 months ago but I would still like to know if I had a shot) I have pretty good grades (except my English): English: 85 Math: 95 Chemistry: 93 Biology: 92 Physics: 96 Spanish: (I'm sure they don't care about this mark, but just for the sake of it) 98 Law: (again, just for the sake of it) 92 Also, I have good extra-curriculars as well: Approximately 240 hour
  21. Bonjour/Hello, J’ai quelques questions concernant l’admission à la médecine au Québec, en espérant que je suis au bon endroit pour les poser Mon frère a actuellement 17 ans, et il est en voit d’obtenir son baccalauréat français dans un lycée au Maroc. Il voudrait me rejoindre à Montréal pour étudier la médecine, mais il y a deux problèmes: 1) l’école de médecine n’est en général ouverte qu’aux étudiants avec la résidence Canadienne 2) les frais de scolarité universitaires pour les étudiants internationaux sont astronomiques (environ $20 000 par année) Après d’amples
