  1. Hi! I know there are other discussions currently up but I couldn't find any specific for McGill OT QY applicants. Has anyone who applied to the McGill OT QY program heard back yet, gotten accepted/ offer to nominate or waitlisted? I thought we would hear back by now (end of April- due to friends in previous years hearing back in April) but I still haven't received anything in my email.
  2. Salut tout le monde! J'ai eu la chance énorme d'être accepté dans les 3 universités francophones en 2022, et je peine à choisir! Je pense qu'un thread qui discute des pour/contres de chaque campus ou bien de chaque université pourrait être bien! J'ai hâte d'entendre les recommendations de chacuns!
  3. Hello everyone, Let us present ourselves: we are student ambassadors of McGill Medicine. Not too long ago, we were in the applicant seats and we sympathize with the anxiety that comes along with that role. In fact, some of us roamed the pages here at premed101 and asked questions of our own in the hope of elucidating some of our worries about the application process and student life at McGill Medicine. We are glad to tell you that we are happy with our choice and this has brought us to pilot this Q&A initiative, where we hope to give back some of the good advice we have received along the way. Please do note that although we are affiliated with McGill's admission committee, the opinions we give here represent an honest and subjective view that is independent from the admissions committee. Now that is cleared up...Dear applicants, please ask away! Wishing you the very best during this application session, McGill Med Ambassadors Questions list (updated infrequently, search is your friend!) MMI Tips Could you describe a typical day at McGill medical school? How much "free time" do you have in the program?What is the general atmosphere between students, do you feel some kind of competition? Are you graded, or is the program pass/fail? What are some aspects of McGill and/or the program that you don't like and could be improved? Information about the MD/PhD program (specifically the interview process) Information for applicants who do not speak French, French language requirements How many people from the waiting list are admitted every year for Quebec university level? Does McGill use APP ("apprentissage par problème") like Udem ? or something similar ? What time the interview day usually ends? Which grades are considered by the CaRMS, as some residency programs allow a certain percentage to the grades obtained during the «pré-clinique»? What is the difference between a task oriented station and a simulation station at the MMI? What should we really wear for the MMI? See also: Should I wear a suit for the MMI? Does it look bad if we glimpse at our watch a couple of times during the MMI? Is there a place where you can check-in luggage (for OOP or international students flying in)?  How are the final decisions are made after the interview? Is it possible to apply to both Med and Dent at McGill at the same time? When do we get our McGill email addresses after we are admitted? So do university level in province, NTP in province and CEGEP have different wait lists, or do they all compete under the IP category? What is the immunization process for admitted students? For CEGEP students, would my admission be rescinded if I do not graduate on time (end of May) and take a summer class to graduate before July 1st? How does the admission process works for Ph.D students that are almost done and want to apply to the MD.CM program? Concerning the location of the MMI at McGill - from the information they give, there is a coat check. How secure is this? I have to bring my laptop and school books with me to town... is it safe? What is the everyday academic schedule for a 1st year to 2nd year MD student at McGill? See also: How is the schedule like during FMD? In average, how many hours do you need to study per day? What are the longitudinal family med time requirements? Until which time point in the MD training should you totally forget to hold a part time job? What is the average leisure time you can enjoy per day? Does McGill offer early decision admission? If so, how does it work and when is the application due? Can CEGEP courses count towards Recommended Physiology Courses? Does taking 3 and/or 4 courses per semester lead to an automatic refusal? If an interview is obtained on the basis of a second undergrad, are you required to complete this second degree with a full course load and obtain the diploma? Do you remember completely messing up a station or two but still end up getting in? What role to CEGEP grades play in my Med-P admission process? How many student retake the Med-P year and why? Science GPA vs. Recommended courses ... which are taken into account post interview? How much or how little should I practice for the interview? I applied for extenuating circumstances and I want to know if they will be considered for my admission, should I write to the admission office or should I not ask? Will French affect my learning and interactions with peers? WHY McGill? HOW is the the curriculum structured? Does accepting your McGill Med offer removes you from consideration at Ontario schools? What do they mean by "studies currently in progress must be at a level comparable to past academic performance."? Will my acceptance be revoked?? When are we supposed to send our first tuition payments? Is 26 years old too old to start medical school? How can I join the class of 2021 facebook group? Does the admission committee discriminate against applicants who have a second degree? How does course replacement for science prerequisites work? Will increasing my GPA by retaking courses during fall help me to get an interview? What should I do if my account on Minerva shows that I am supposed to pay international fees even though I am a Qc resident? Are there good study spaces on campus? How many times can I apply to medical school? Does McGill offer public transportation passes? What should I do if my science prerequisites expire soon? How are block exams delivered? Are laptops required? See also: Are there any recommended PC laptops? For those who have two undergraduate degrees: if the first degree had some terms of part-time studying, can we still be considered on the basis of our 2nd degree? Is the exam software compatible with iPads and tablets? How hard is it to get into the program as an NTP? Does the Nutrition and Dietetics program in Toronto registers as a "professional program"? Where can we get some information about reapplication? Is it recommended to do observerships during first year? Does McGill arrange accommodations for rotations outside of Montreal? Can the third-year elective be done outside of Canada? How many weeks of pre-CaRMS electives are there? What does the admission committee mean by "maintaining a comparable academic performance"? How hard is it to match to a US residence if coming from McGill? How does it work when we have to sign a CEQ? When will the FB group of Class of 2022 be created? Is it possible to finish my graduate studies during medical school? Should I expect a formal acceptance letter via snail mail? How are official documents usually delivered? In which building are classes mostly held? Can the science prerequisites be taken at other universities/as online courses? Is the list of reasons for deferral on the McGill Website exhaustive? Do McGill students need to upload a final transcript? When does the security check by CMQ happen? Are classes recorded? Is it possible to re-take on the science prerequisite courses in order to increase my GPA?
  4. Hi Everyone!! So I had a couple of questions if anyone could answer it would be highly appreciated! 1) Right now I am in my last semester of CEGEP (I did my CEGEP in 4 semesters, however i started during the winter semester). Obviously I want to apply to med-p and dent-p at mcgill. However, in order to do so that would mean that i would have to wait for a semester (since I am finishing my cegep in the fall). Would i still be applicable to applying for mcgill's med-p and dent-p after staying for a gap semester (not doing any studies)? 2) At the moment i have an r-score of 35.2 which is really stressing me out. Like its not a competitive r-score but its not that bad (I like calling it the grey area). But does anybody know if people with r-scores like mine make it into mcgill med-p and dent-p or am I just dreaming that i have a chance of getting in haha? In order to counterbalance my r-score's uncompetitiveness I have been working as a caregiver and i got my first aid and cpr trainings. Other than that i did some volunteering (approx. 100 hours). I also got some trophies back from high school. But does anybody know if people with r-scores like mine make it into mcgill med-p and dent-p or am I just dreaming that i have a chance of getting in haha? 3) I started revising for the casper but could anyone give me any pointers on whats the best method to study for it. I bought the "**DELETED** casper" book but i found the responds they give in the book too unrealistic because they're very long. So does anyone have any suggestions?
  5. Bonjour ! J'ai remarqué qu'il y avait beaucoup de "topics" pour suivre l'évolution dans différents programmes en santé, mais je n'ai rien trouvé par rapport à l'ergothérapie. Dès que certains d'entre nous recevrons des nouvelles (admissions, refus, liste d'attente..), ce serait cool qu'on laisse les informations ici pour le programme. Bonne chance à tous pour les admissions!!
  6. Salut! Comme j'ai vu qu'il y avait de l'intérêt pour un groupe francophone de préparation pour les MEM de McGill, j'ai pris l'initiative d'ouvrir ce topic pour qu'on puisse s'arranger entre francophones. ^^ Personnes intéressées: Groupe A @cestlahess (Med-P) @Imen (MDCM) @Kibo(Med-P) Libre Groupe B @LGMed2021 (MDCM) @cc11 (MDCM) Amie de cc11 (MDCM) @FHKIN(MDCM) Groupe C @Médecine1(MDCM) Médicomage (MDCM) @Nicolas(MDCM) @Holamola(MDCM) Groupe D @Aurora (MDCM) @Ing_222(MDCM) Libre Libre Groupe E Libre Libre Libre Libre Pourriez-vous préciser si vous êtes dans le contingent collégial (Med-P) ou universitaire (MDCM)?

  8. Hi! Is it bad to re-upload your CV? I am waiting on an answer from a verifier but I want to upload my documents now just to be safe. I might have to re-upload my CV closer to the deadline at 9pm, depending on what my verifier replies back to me. Should I wait before uploading my CV or can I just upload twice and they will only consider the latest version?
  9. So like, yeah! Hi, cegep student first semester done. I passed the important classes like Calculus and gen. chem. 1, but I failed french and like discrete math, which idk why i have this class but it's just 2 credits and not worth as much as cal or chem, and just saw that it really isn't a science prereq. for mcgill. So I just wanted to say how much does it lower my chance of getting accepted into mcgill in a Bsc. program?
  10. Je suis présentement au cégep et j'essaie de m'informer par rapport aux bacs qui m'intéresseraient (et dans lesquels je pense pouvoir performer et être motivée) au cas où je ne suis pas acceptée en med directement. Est-ce que quelqu'un sait si le bac en sciences infirmières et le bac en physique sont bien cotés pour la CRU (4,0/4,3 donnerait combien à peu près)? Est ce que ce sont des options de bac réalistes? J'ai déjà regardé pour Laval et je suis surtout curieuse pour Udem et McGill :)) Merci à l'avance!
  11. I got into Honours HSS at Ottawa U and I'm still waiting on Anatomy and cell biology at Mcgill. Which program is best to transfer into either premed or dentistry. I'm not too sure what I want to do yet, but I know I love health science and medicine. I want to get a high GPA and I heard Ottawa U is best for that and the courses seem very interesting. However, I am from Montreal and I would prefer to stay here. I also got into life science and nutrition at McGill and kinesiology at Udem. Anyone have any advice on what the best path is to take to get into medicine?
  12. Hi! Wondering if somebody received news recently regarding the program, courses to register and the orientation? Also, did you guys completed your immunization and BLS?

  16. Hi, Is the life science programs at McGill in the faculty of environmental science and agriculture equivalent to the Biomedical programs at the McGill in the Faculty of science? Life science is at the Mac campus and Biomed is at the downtown campus. Life science is easier to get into but does it have the same qualities as Biomed? Does a life science student have a chance of getting into medicine? Which program will give me the best GPA Thank you so much who those who are able to advice me
  17. Hi, what is the best undergrad program between Life science, nutrition and anatomy and cell bio at McGill to pursue graduate studies in medicine? Please rank 1st,2nd,3rd and if you have attended one of the programs, what was it like?
  18. Hello! I’m an incoming pre-med student and I’ve been accepted to both McGill’s Anatomy and Cell Biology program, and Queen’s Health Science program. I’ve been having difficulties choosing between the two because I love the Queen’s program, but I really dislike the idea of being in Kingston, ON and the general student body atmosphere. However, I still like the program at McGill, but I’m not as informed on it. As well, I deeply love Montreal and the people there. Any opinions/advice is welcome, what would you recommend as a pre-med student?
  19. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew when McGill is planning on releasing OT/PT admission offers for the bachelor's program. Thanks
  20. Salut!! La date du premier TAED approche bientôt donc j'ai pensé commencer une discussion sur l'admission en DMD pour l'automne 2021 si jamais vous avez des questions sur quoi que ce soit! Heeyy! The first DAT exam is coming up soon so I thought of starting a discussion for the fall 2021 dentistry admissions in case you had any questions!
  21. Hello everyone I have applied into nursing programs in Montreal (at UdeM, uSherbrooke (campus Longueuil) and McGill). I am very interested in working in health care and a nursing career is an option if I don’t get into med school. I was simply wondering what are the best nursing programs in Montreal? I’ve heard some bad reviews for UdeM, saying that they easily kick out their students and that they have a different approach (apprentissage par problème). Is it the same for the other universities? I simply want to take the best decision regarding my nursing education. If there’s any former nursing student reading this, please reach out!
  22. Okay so I find myself in a bit of a tough situation. Basically my r-score from my first session wasn't too great but I worked extremely hard last session to increase it. My problem is that due to the pandemic and the weird standard dev. in groups I have zero idea of whether or not my r-score improved(or decreased) since my first session. I go to Maisonneuve College and apparently there's some kind of issue going on right now so they can't distribute our r-scores???? I was waiting to receive mine to figure out my third choice at Udem (my r score is lower than last year's last admitted in optometry). I've tried contacting them countless times and the last time I did (literally 5 minutes ago) I was told that they had no idea when we would get our r-scores like NO IDEA AT ALL. They couldn't even give me an estimate. Today's the 18th and since I haven't sent in my application to all the unis I plan on applying to I still haven't registered for my first CASPer. On the CASPer website it says to register at least 3 days prior(im writing on the 21st). My question is, if I register now, can I add programs to send my casper to later on? like say in a week? Because before registrating they ask you which programs you applied to. So im basically just really confused rn idk what to do. Can someone who's been in a similar situation, or anyone really give me advice? should I just register for the casper rn even tho I haven't sent my application to uni yet? can I edit the programs/unis that get my CASPer a couple days after completing my CASPer or do I have to make my choices while registrating for it? HELPPP French summary: La cote-r n'a pas encore été distribuée au collège de maisonneuve (oui je sais on était supposé les recevoirs le 17). J'ai appelé à de nombreuses reprises mais à chaque fois(la dernière était il y a 5 minutes) on me dit qu'il y a un problème avec le fournisseur et qu'ils n'ont aucune idée de quand nous allons recevoir nos cotes R. genre AUCUNE idée ZÉRO NADA :((( bref, ma question c'est par rapport au casper. Puisque je n'ai pas encore ma cote r je préfère attendre encore un peu avant de déposer mes demandes d'admission. La seule que j'ai déposé jusqu'à date est celle de laval. Je veux écrire mon premier CASPer en anglais pour Mcgill et UdeM et je me demandais si je peux séléctionner plus de récipients (programs/facultés) quelque jours après avoir complété mon CASPer (en espérant que j'aurais ma cote R d'ici là). Donc je me demandais si ça se fait?
  23. Bonjour! Je viens de terminer ma première session d'université en kinésiologie cet automne dernier à UdeM. Je termine avec un GPA de 3.88/4.33 . Je me demandais si quelqu'un saurait cela équivalait environ à combien en CRU dans ce programme et quelle est la CRU minimale approximative qu'il faut pour ergothérapide à udem. Je sais qu'UdeM regarde seulement mes notes de la session d'automne passé et celles de cégep, mais je voulais m'essayer aussi à McGill... Je crois qu'ils prendront en compte mes notes de cette session d'hiver aussi si je ne me trompes pas. Je voulais savoir si McGill acceptent souvent des transferts de d'autres universités dans ce programme et quelle est la CRU minimale recherchée dans cette école aussi. Merci bcp!
  24. Hello Everyone/Salut tout le monde! I am a Quebec university student who is graduating from undergrad this semester. I’m planning on applying to a DESS (Diplôme d’études supérieures spécialisées) program at Université de Montréal before applying to Medicine and Pharmacy next application cycle. Let's cut to the chase: I’m wondering if being part of a DESS program will significantly hurt my chances of being accepted to the Quebec Medical schools, compared to a full-on Masters degree. Pros to the DESS (in my opinion): DESS programs are only 1 year of full time study, and many of them offer doing an additional year of directed study or a stage somewhere. Upon completing the additional year, I would graduate with a full Masters degree. Research isn’t really my favourite, and I would prefer to do a more application-based program, but not if it will hurt my chances, or not improve my chances, at getting into Med/Pharm . Cons to the DESS (possibly?): When I apply during the next application cycle, they will see that I have been working on a DESS instead of a Masters degree (not sure if this one counts as a Con or not, that's why I'm asking here!). I haven’t seen this discussed anywhere else, so if anyone has anecdotes or feedback of any kind to share about this situation, I would really appreciate them!
