  1. I started university straight out of high school. I did 2.5 years before being kicked out. My poor academic performance was due to a variety of reasons including trauma and mental illness. I took some time off and I went back to school in the 2020/2021 academic year. I'm currently doing well academically and personally. I'm halfway through my degree. I calculated my gpa using the OMSAS scale: Year 1 - 2.60 (30 credits) Year 2 - 2.05 (22 credits) Year 3 - 0.7 (12 credits) 2020/2021 - 3.96 (30 credits) I've never taken the MCAT but I've done some basic science cour
  2. Hi everyone, So I'm finishing up my BBA with no science courses under my belt (I decided on medicine late in the game, during my 4th year). I really wasn't planning on applying to further schooling, much less switching to medicine so my grades weren't a huge priority to me and I didn't do so hot. My biggest concern is that with a low GPA, my application might not even get looked at, even if I do well on the MCAT and get some good extracurricular experience. My averages by year are: 1 - 3.76 2 - 3.28 3 - 3.42 4 - 3.09 5 - 3.95 (estimated) Cumulativ
  3. Hello everyone, I am currently a Master's student in a research-based program at UofT. This will be my first time applying to medical school (as well as a few MD/PhD programs), and I am hoping to hit most of the Ontario schools and McGill. I would love and appreciate some honest (but maybe hopeful) advice as an applicant for this upcoming cycle. I was born and raised in rural Ontario, but I went to do my undergraduate degree at UofCalgary, which in hindsight, has not benefitted me at all. Their grading system was awful (my already-low GPA drops a bit after OMSAS conversion I b
  4. Long story short, I graduated with a bachelor in Engineering (Chemical) with a 2.76 cGPA and just finished a maters in Mathematics with a cGPA 3.7. After a series of incidents, I decided now to go for medical school. I'm deciding on whether to take non-degree pre med courses at some universities or go for a post bacc program for med school, or should I go for a second degree for a better GPA? I have research experience in math and bioengineering(worked under professors in school), no publications yet. Worked 2 years in a ophthalmologist office as a medical exam pretester(check pati
  5. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on writing the MCAT. I have been toying around with writing the MCAT since the last cycle's results came out on May 12th. I am from Ontario and was on the waitlist for the only school I applied to last cycle (NOSM). A little background/stats: I am a non-traditional applicant. Degrees: HBSc (Chemistry), Bachelor of Education (concurrent), Master of Education (completed Nov 2019). GPA: cGPA 3.56, 2Y GPA for Queen's 3.67 ABS: Likely the strongest suit in my application. Lots of long term EC's. SSHRC in Master's, tw
  6. Im doing biomedical sciences at York and I didn't do great during my first two years. Got a GPA of 2.7 in first year. Second year, first semester, I wasn't able to focus, sad all the time for no reason, i was lost and I withdrew from organic chemistry (also withdrew a course in first year), I'm doing bad in calculus (planning on dropping the course prior to the deadline and still attending classes so i can do better next time), I dropped two other courses; one by early september and the other by November. I plan on changing my second semester of 2nd year, i even looked at how to study effectiv
  7. My GPA's not stellar but my MCAT and ECs are decent. What would be my chances to get into med school in Ontario? I'm in Life Sciences at McMaster. Would taking a masters be a good idea? And if so, which degree should I be thinking about? First yr: 3.3 Second yr: 3.87 Third yr: 4.0 MCAT: 525 ECs: Hospital shadowing, exec position for Doctors without Borders, Global Medical Brigades, research, design reviewing for devices for patients with disabilities, multiple awards for social justice debates and research competitions Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
  8. Hello Everyone, I am in a predicament as of now. I am 27 at the moment and I am a Comp Science Engineer as my bachelors (2014) and a Masters in Information Systems (2015). My GPA in Bachelors is 7.3/10 and MS is 3.0/4.0 As of now I am working in the IT sector as a Data Engineer on contracts but my main goal is to become a Doctor ANYHOW. I am ready to do any hardwork required for the same. I don't have any of the prerequisites required for med school. Also my GPA's are low. Could you guys please chalk out a path for me to follow in regards of handling my GPA, pre reqs, MCAT, extra
  9. Hello, I know everyone must be tired of seeing these types of "what are my chances" posts but I could really use some advice. I am currently in my last year of my undergrad at UofC and eligible to graduate this spring. Unfortunately, med school has only become a dream of mine in the last year or so and my first two years GPA does not reflect this desire at all. Here is a breakdown: I have taken 5 courses each semester for my entire degree. GPA: 1st year: 2.73 2nd year: 3.02 3rd year: 3.61 4th year: 4.00 EC's Do pracitucms count for this? If so, I
  10. Hey all this is my first post ever so I'm sorry Stats: annual / cGPA 1st year: 2.73 / 2.73 (1 semester with 4 courses) 2nd year: 3.08 / 2.91 (1 semester with 4 courses) 3rd year: 3.79/ 3.21 (1 semester with 4 courses) currently in 4th year and I'm estimating 3.8+/ cGPA3.35~ 2 years of research, volunteer and community stuff Option 1: take a fifth year of easy-ish courses to boost my GPA --> even if i get straight As prolly won't be competitive enough for canada ~3.47 Option 2: take a fifth year --> fulfill 1 year of physics and 1 year or gen/o
  11. I know this question is asked by countless members on this forum, but I am currently in a rut. I am currently a U of Saskatchewan student (Canadian) and would like advice regarding premed as I am currently dealing with a low gpa for my first and second years of my degree. My gpa calculations are as followed (OMSAS) 1st and 2nd year: 3.00 gpa (73 and 72) (1 semester with 4 courses) 3rd year: 3.9 (86) First semester of 4th year: 3.7 (84.2) If I finish with a 86 overall in my fourth year, I calculate that I will still only have a 78 percent which is too low to be compet
  12. I completed my pharmacy degree abroad (Egypt). My parents decided to leave Canada and move back to Egypt, and guess what? Had to leave with them. However, i decided to move back to Canada after completing pharmacy. Im currently a licensed Pharmacist in Ontario. I hold a bachelors degree and wish to apply to medical school. My average in pharmacy was around 86%. I still need to take my MCATs. I am also thinking about completing my PharmD, in hopes to strengthen my application. Im not sure where to start, and do i even have a chance? Will my international undergrad hold be bac
  13. I am almost done my BSc in Biology however, I have an extremely low GPA around 2.33. Yes, I know that's terrible. I keep telling myself maybe I should choose a different path, but I just can't. I have been volunteering at the hospital for a few years now. I am not athletic and I have not been leading anything in particular. But I still want to be a doctor and now I am more mentally prepared then I was when I began initially. What can I do to increase my chances as an applicant?
  14. Hello, Of course there is no official cut-off, but given 10 OOP with historic average of >3.9, should i even consider McGill with GPA below 3.7? i would have a solid EC letter for my low first year GPA, (2nd and 3rd were 3.8-3.9); and my second degree is a professional degree. any thoughts?
  15. Hey guys, I'm going into Second year at UBC and I'm just concerned about my grades at this point... wondering if I can make a come back. At the end of first year I got a 67.6 avg ..are there anyone with this experience?? Did you make a comeback ? If I can make a comeback which schools would I be exempted from ? And which schools i have hope for assuming I will do way way way better in future years. Also I'm in this new program B+MM where I have a master's management (business) degree at the end of 5 years at ubc. Would this benefit me for Med school ? And I know I
