  1. Salluutt ! Puisque la COVID nous inquiète bcp et semble vraiment avoir impacté nos chances d'admission (du moins, pour plusieurs d'entre nous) je pensais qu'on pouvait partager nos stats pré-entrevues, juste pour avoir une idée du portrait des appliquants cette année! Voici le format que je propose, libre de modifier à votre guise Catégorie : (collégien vs uni) COTE R/ GPA pré-covid : COTE R / GPA post-covid ( si applicable) : Programme : (SN, profil..., SLA, pharma, etc....) CASPER impressions (si fait) : Commentaires : ?
  2. I'm looking to apply to Med school for fall 2021 entry - I've already written my MCAT and feel I've got a decent shot at it. I've always wanted to be a doctor as I've loved the high-pressure first aid situations that I've experienced as a Lifeguard and I enjoy scientific problem solving as well as helping people the best I can. I really want to have one on one personal interactions with the public in my job. The only thing is that over the past few years, I've become extremely interested in health policy. I've started to really think deeply about the way the healthcare system works and all the
  3. For premed and med school, do they value competencies in foreign languages like French?
  4. Since professors have to maintain their class average around 60%, would programs with a high cut-off from high school be harder since the professor's will need to make assessments more difficult because all of the students will be high achievers. I'm asking this because I want to go to medical school and need a high GPA which is why I am conflicted between a program like western med sci which is full of keeners vs something like York Kinesiology. I know you probably see many annoying people like me on this website but please bear with me.
  5. Bonjour, Je suis étudiante à l’UdeM en kinésiologie. J’ai obtenue une CRC de 31,419. J’ai appliquée en DMD à udem et ulaval, même si j’ai presque aucune chance de me faire accepter. J’ai un GPA de 3,6 - 3,7 (je ne le sais pas encore) avec 12 crédits. Question 1 : Quelle est approximativement ma CRU, ET j’ai besoin d’un GPA de combien pour augmenter mes chances? Question 2: C'est quoi la CRU du dernier admis pour l'automne 2018 en DMD à ulaval et udem? Question 3: Si je reste en kin, je ne peux plus abandonner de cours si je n’ai pas de bonnes notes dans les premiers
  6. Hi there. Just trying to get a better understanding of my chances at Ontario med schools - I've really lost perspective on if I'm good enough over the last year and just want some opinions. Please be brutally honest. I'm currently in my 3rd year of undergrad at UofT. GPA listed is OMSAS GPA predicting what I'll have at the end of this year (as a medium case scenario). cGPA: 3.87 UofT wGPA: 3.92 MCAT: Haven't written yet. Took the NS full length without studying last summer and got 506 (126/126/127/127) if that means anything. Other info: very involved since my high sc
  7. Bonjour, En ce moment, ma cote R est de 32.696 et je désire aller en médecine. Il me reste présentement deux sessions avec 12 cours au total. J'hésite entre deux options pour finir mon parcours : A ) Faire mes deux sessions restantes avec 6 cours chaques. La troisième session, celle en cours, n'a pas de philo, le cours qui me baissait grandement. Aussi, parmis les 6 cours, j'ai éduc. Alors simplement 5 cours diffiles qui inclut un cours complémentaire. J'ai alors quand même une grande chance d'augmenter mes notes. B ) Annuler des cours et faire une session de plus. J'aurais alors
  8. Salut, J'ai complété un bac en biochimie a UDEM (fini en 2017). Mon GPA était de 3.358/4.3 (pour 91 crédits) et ça m'a donné 32.919 de CRU. Si jamais dans le futur ça pourrait donner une idée aux gens qui postuleront en médecine avec un bac de biochimie (car je n'ai pas beaucoup trouvé de thread sur la CRU de biochimie). J'ai quelques questions si vous aurez la gentillesse de me répondre 1. Est ce que cette CRU serait approximativement la même pour un autre programme d'étude (comme nutrition)? 2. J'étais vraiment étonnée de ma CRU car je m'attendais à moins et je c
  9. Hey everyone! Firstly, a HUGE congratulations to all applicants in the 2019/2020 cycle who finished their interview at UBC during the past couple of weekends!! Take the time to pat yourselves on the back for finishing up with the stressful portion of your applications! It's just a matter of waiting until May -- I sincerely wish you all the best of successes no matter what happens. I can definitely understand how stressful the wait can be though, so if anyone would like to chat via PM, please feel free to message me. It's much easier said than done, but try to distract yourself with so
  10. Salut, Donc j’ai eu un parcours vraiment difficile au Cégep, j’ai eu un accident d’auto et une opération... donc ma cote R collégiale est très basse (dans les environs de 27.XXX) et c’est présentement ma quatrième session en sciences de la nature profil sciences pures et appliquées (en principe je voulais être ingénieur biomédicale, mais le destin a fait en sorte que je veuille me diriger plutôt en santé, dont la médecine dentaire). Alors, j’aurais plusieurs questions concernant le parcours que je devrais suivre pour me rendre en médecine dentaire. Premièrement, je vais devoir choisir

  12. Hi all! My name is Christopher and I am the author of www.UltimatePremedPackage.ca which I know a few of you have found to be a useful resource for your premed journey. This summer a classmate and I have been busy working on a new podcast called Pluripotent Premed which we intent to act as an audio guide for navigating the premed years as a Canadian applicant. We dive into all topics related to the MCAT, med school interview, extracurriculars, and more. We will also be interviewing classmates of ours who are got into med from alternative backgrounds (e.g. arts, nursing, other careers) and
  13. Hey guys, Does anyone know schools like McGill would consider my second undergrad is it is not fully done ? (like only a few courses left). Thanks!
  14. Hi, I did my Casper test not too long ago. During the 15 minute break they give while doing the exam, I started talking to my sister about the questions I had been asked so far and she was in the other room next to me. I think she was in the webcam frame during the break. Do you guys think that it could affect my score on the exam or that they might consider it cheating? Thank you! _____ Bonjour, J'ai fait mon examen Casper il n'y a pas très longtemps. Pendant la pause de 15 minutes à laquelle on a le droit durant l'examen, j'ai discuté avec ma soeur à propos des quest
  15. I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
  16. Well well well, May 10th has officially been declared as this year’s UBC Med D-Day! I thought to start our discussion thread so the nerves and doubts and excitement can officially be discussed as we inch closer to the beginning of the end (for the cycle!) and possibly the beginning of a new beginning. Here’s our official live countdown: https://www.arewethere.yt/OFFICIAL-D-DAY-2019/100157.htm
  17. Salut, je viens d'être accepter en nutrition à UdeM. Cependant mon goal ultime serait d'aller en médecine, mais je n'ai pas les notes nécéssaires en ce moment. Est-ce possible d'utiliser ce programme de nutrition comme pont, pour augmenter ses notes et ainsi avoir une meilleur chance d'être accepté en médecine après ?
  18. Hello, I am a long time lurker, and this is my first post. I was wondering if my fellow Ontario comrades that got interviews/invites could please give me some tips! Also, I have the following stats, I would really appreciate some feedback and perhaps recommendations on certain schools that fit my experiences/scores: 516 on the MCAT (129/128/130/129) 3.8 GPA (Perfect GPA last 2 years) ECs: Lots of volunteering at a hospital in patient care (300+ hours) 2 publications with a neurosurgeon as a 3rd author Spent the majority of my undergrad playing varsity te
  19. Hey, I'm a Canadian premed student who's currently in a bit of a pickle. I'm considering dropping a course in which I have received a mark of 81% on the first midterm, but am anticipating a somewhat lower mark (~60 ish?) on the second midterm, though there's no valid evidence that I would necessarily achieve such a low mark, apart from the empty feeling in my stomach recalling myself winging a somewhat highly weighted question. On the flipside, it seems that many students had a similar experience on the second midterm, so my reluctance to drop the course stems from the notion that
  20. Hey guys, I'm at a cross-road for where to go if I want to continue the dream of getting into med school. I really goofed up my first couple years leading to an ~3.4 GPA after 6 years (5 years of BioSci and 1 year Psyc minor). The last 2-3 years were decent with a respective 3.6, 3.96, 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately I can't seem to get over the MCAT hump having written 3 times with a 500, 501, and 502 scores. The last one (502) had a 126 in CARS so I decided to apply to UofC and UofA being from Alberta (although definitely not holding my breath). I have very good ECs including fluency in 3 languages,
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Salut! Je voulais savoir que si je ne suis pas accepté en med après mon cégèp, faut-il prendre un bac pour faire une autre admission? Puis si oui, est-ce que les uni vont regarder à ma CRC ou ma CRU? Ma deuxième question est si je peux faire une admission à un autre programme de doctorat après mon CÉGÈP. Disons que je veux faire une admission à med dentaire ou pharmacie, is it vraiment legit?? c'est un cheminement vraiment différent que celle de l'Ontario (Je suis un élève de l'Ontario qui déménage au Québec bientôt donc je ne sais pas autant à propos du Cégèp que je croyais). Merci b
  24. Hi all, I'm a 1st time poster who like some of you has been in university for quite some time now... I started out taking a BSc in 2011 (taking me 5 years) and received atrocious marks. I pushed through, graduated and took a year off to recollect. That year off has done WONDERS and I am now in my second year of nursing achieving about a 90% avg in my studies (still taking full credits every semester). I've enjoyed what nursing has offered me, however I wondered if there was any inkling of a chance of me getting into a med school. I searched through this website and found a forum (most rec
