  1. I’m trying to pick an undergraduate program that will help me get a high gpa and research opportunities while leaving adequate time for extracurriculars and volunteer experience so that I can apply to medical school. of the program listed, which ones will give me all of those things and please let me know if you’ve heard anything good or bad about them. thanks!
  2. Hi everyone, I am looking for your real and honest advice here. I am in my fourth year of a b.sc undergad at mcmaster and will be graduating in the spring. I did not apply to med this past cycle because I had no confidence in my application and thought that perhaps doing a masters would be a better alternative in the meantime. While I have been offered acceptance to these programs the thought of letting med go without every trying makes me sick. I want to go to medical school so badly but I am so afraid that it will never happen for me and scared to face that reality. Here are my stats please tell me your thoughts: Year 1 3.3888 (took 9 courses) Year 2 3.73 (took 10 courses) Year 3 3.78 (took 11 courses but 1 is p/f so only 10 in gpa calculation) - fall gpa 3.6, winter gpa 3.96 (not counted at some schools) Year 4 3.96 (took 10 courses) I calculate my cgpa to be 3.723. My best two years without winter 2020 would be year 2 and 4 = 3.845 (Western) My most recent two years without winter 2020 would be = 3.84 (Queens) - not that this matters now but had I not taken ochem as an elective in the fall of my third year my fall gpa would have been a 3.925 (3.925+3.96/2 = 3.945 best two year without winter 2020 - so this sucks) I would have to write an academic explanations essay to get uoft wgpa since I took only 9 courses in my first year but otherwise it would have been = 3.747 I have done the calculations for a couple of other schools but I don't want to make this post messier than it is. If you think there is a school I could potentially have a chance at then I will definitely add that number in. I am willing to go to literally any school in Canada, will do US MD. If neither of those I have been thinking about DO, Carib, Ireland and Australia. What are your thoughts on that? I have also thought about taking courses after I graduate (i know western allows these to be counted as a special year) If i got a hypothetic 4.0 in year 5 my cgpa would be 3.779 (not much dif. for mac) but my best 2 year/ most recent 2 year gpa would be 3.96+4/2 = 3.98 which would be my Queens and Western score. ECS: 2 full years research under department chair and now completing senior thesis (possibly of publishing), intro psych ta, 2 mcmaster clubs, free volunteer tutoring, 300+ hours volunteer at cardiology clinic (taking bp, recording medical information etc), summer volunteer at sunnybrook veteran centre, volunteered for 2 months with a arthritis research assistant at mount sinai, has worked as a red cross swim instructor (1 year) and as an inclusion instructor (2 years) with special needs Want to write MCAT again in early July to apply to some US schools, the first time I wrote I knew I didn't feel ready and hardly studied toward the end, I know I can do significantly better. (Keep in mind I have 2 gen chem with lab, 2 bio with lab, 1 physics with lab, 2 orgo with lab, 1 calc, 1 english, many psych) I know I am missing biochem, phys 2 and eng 2 for some schools in Canada/ US. I am so sorry this is so long I just need someone's advice. Should I give it a try what are my chances realistically?
  3. Fall 2019 I will be starting an Honours B.A in Psychology at UOttawa and plan on studying in medicine, completing all my science prerequisites. I know that there isn't a specific degree for medical school but every now and then I worry. Is it really a problem? Should I make the program change(if I can)? Did you or do you know anyone who has gotten into medical school with my degree? sincerely, a (slightly) worried pre-med student
  4. Hi, I would have some questions for the admission in MD in the University of Ottawa. I am currently a university student in Quebec so I would like to apply in the French stream of the MD program next year. Our province was highly touched with Covid-19 so our universities gave us the right to apply to the Pass/Fail option in our winter 2020 classes. As mentioned in the admission criteria of UofOttawa, to be eligible, only one class Pass/Fail per semester is allowed. Is this rule still applicable with the circumstances of covid-19 for next year admissions? Also, I've changed programs in university and has been given the choice of crediting some of my classes. Considering the fact that I already have one class pass/fail in my current program and one class that I would like to credit from my old program ( credited as equivalent (EQV)), would I stil be eligible to apply ? Thank you in advance!:)
  5. Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice. I am entering my fourth year at McMaster earning my B.Sc. Here are my stats converted using OMSAS: 1st year: 3.388 (sem1: 3.3 + sem2 3.5 (only took 4 courses)). 2nd year: 3.73 (sem1 3.62 + sem2 3.84) 3rd year: 3.78 (sem1 3.6 + sem 2 3.96) I know some schools aren't taking winter 2020 anymore:( Had I not taken organic chemistry in the Fall 2019 term (my third year, first semester), which I should not have because it was an elective my GPA fall 2019 would have been a 3.925 Bringing my third year grades to a 3.942. I wish I could remove this grade it would change a lot. 4th year: aiming for 4.0 (only taking electives this year) I know these grades are terrible, especially first year I had a very difficult time mentally. In the semesters that followed I've gotten nearly all As but have always had 1 class a year bring me down significantly. I am hoping to do really well in my fourth year but even then I feel like its not enough. I am taking the MCAT August 15th for the first time. Here are my ECs: Red cross swim instructor, Inclusion Instructor (children with special needs), will be intro psych TA in Fall 2020, 1 year research with department chair and will be continuing next year, volunteer tutoring services, copy editor for undergraduate journal, macchangers team (find solutions for Hamilton community during Covid-19), international buddy (aid international students), volunteer hospital (clinical) around 60 hours, volunteer hospital (administrative/research assistant) around 30 hours, volunteer in cardiology clinic around 200 hours, in hs: dance team, leadership, chaplaincy, volunteer at elementary school 50 hours, volunteer at rec centre 20 hours... I am willing to go to any school in Canada or US MD that would accept me. Do I have any chance with my GPA anywhere? If I do what is the minimum MCAT score you think I need? I appreciate your honesty, opinions and advice. Thank you

  8. Hello, I am a medical student in a Canadian school and was wondering if anyone knew anything about or could point me towards some resources on what would happen and what I should consider if instead of doing my residency in Canada I go to the UK to do so. I ask because I have family there that I might need to take care of and want to decide my best course of action. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
  9. Hi, here is the breakdown of my situation. I am from Canada and I am 30. - undergrad in an unrelated program (accounting and econ) - worked 3 part time jobs and grades suffered... low GPA - how would I go about financial aid? I do not have a background in science. However, I have always been interested in medicine. I keep seeing the non-traditional student but I don't know exactly what that entails. Would I need to take a post-bacc, but I see in Canada this is uncommon. Would I need to take some pre-requisite courses and how could I increase my GPA or would this not matter now as a mature student. Please help. Thank you!
  10. I graduated with a pre med degree majoring in biology and minoring chemistry. i want to study in the UK for a couple of reasons: relatively cheaper than the US and I need a lifestyle change. But I do want to finish my residency in the US so I can work there easily. any recommendations? I have had a long gap" year" that I managed to earn a masters degree while I work but it is time to go to medical school now. I'm confused as to why there are two medical programs where one is undergrad and one is a graduate program! what is the difference? Any recommendations to schools that accept international student in the UK? looking forward to your input:)))
  11. I am just curious if there are. I know medical schools do not care where you studied for undergrad, however by looking at UofT's 2016 statistics for med school acceptances and their current student biographies I couldn't find anyone who went to Brock University.
  12. I'm aware that NSERC USRA strongly looks at the students' GPA and what year they're in, but are they also looking for students who aren't from a complete science department? I'm double majoring in Biology and Visual Arts and I'm currently in first year. My first semester grade is a around a 3.3 GPA which isn't very high, so does NSERC USRA only look at your first semester grades?
  13. I'm interested in applying for the NSERC USRA program at a few universities (UofWaterloo,Queens, etc..), but I'm just not sure about how students get paid? I'm sure it depends on the university you go to, but the schools I'm applying to aren't my institution so I have to think about living expenses and I'm confused about how they distribute the award. I'm new to this forum and I tried reading on their website, but I still don't understand the financial part, so thank you to those who can answer my question.
  14. Hi ! I've been admitted into U of T's medical school in my year 3 of undergrad, so I won't graduate with a BSc. Will I be disadvantaged in any way when applying for research, shadowing, and even residency? Or in any other aspects? Any insight would greatly be appreciated!!
