  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. Calling all medical school applicants… This is a reminder that interview acceptances are coming soon… BUT, before complete terror sets in, we are pleased to announce the return of the annual uOttawa Med Prep Day. Overcome your fears by joining students from the class of 2023, as you learn how to tackle medical school interviews, strategize your way through ethics questions, and receive helpful tips for your interview day. This full day of activities includes small-group practice of interview questions with second year medical students as well as lectures on medical ethics and wel
  3. Hi, I'm a pharmacist working in Ontario and wish to apply for medicine (it was always the goal -- long story). I've been able to pay off loans and whatnot and now am ready to apply. My stats are: UofT undergrad: 2.68 Pharmacy undergrad (completed in the UK): 3.36 MCAT: 506 (125/127/127/127) Quite extensive EC (sports, arts, dance, community work both within lower-income and new immigrants) No publications/research completed as of yet My gameplan is to do another UG and redo the MCAT. The next UG degree is actually something I'm interested in and was going to do if I didn't get into the
  4. 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. For background, my current GPA is 3.73/4.3. I had a bit of a rough start to University, but it’s been consistently over 3.7 every year after my first, and it should be over 3.75 by the time I finish. Let's cut to the chase: I’m wondering if being part of a DESS program will significantly hurt m
  5. Hi everyone!! What is the end date we should be putting down if the activity is still ongoing? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi guys I had a question for those who have been able to secure a two+ consecutive interviews at UOttawa. Assuming you were not successful with your interview the first time around, when you reapplied... 1) Did you guys change your application significantly or was it more or less the same 2) What do you think your chances are of securing an interview the following year? 3) Are there individuals who had an interview one year and was not able to get one the next year? Thank you guys very much for your help. If you guys know anyone who might not be on these forums but have be
  7. Hello! I’m currently in the process of choosing a cegep, and I’m not quite sure how to rule out my options. I definitely would like to go into medicine, but don’t know which cegep is best for me to attend in order to do so. I know that Marianopolis gives out the best R-scores, but I’m worried that going there won’t make me achieve an above average R-score (when comparing it to the one of other students). Otherwise, if attending a public cegep, I don’t know if I will be able to achieve a high enough R-score there. Basically, I’m just confused about which cegep (public or private) I should atten
  8. Hello! I am a secondary 5 student at a private high school in Montreal. I am interested in going into medicine, and do not know which CEGEP to choose accordingly to that. I’m also not certain if the CEGEP I choose will, positively or negatively, affect my R score, or if going to a public CEGEP will prevent me from obtaining a high R-score. Would it be more of an advantage to attend a private one? (Not sure if this is relevant, but the language of the CEGEP doesn’t matter to me since I’m perfectly bilingual, but I have gone to school in French since elementary). I’m used to being in a co
  9. Hello, I am looking to start an MMI prep group with 3-4 people. I am pretty flexible for how many times a week, when, etc), but would like to start meeting ASAP! Please message me if you are interested! I live in Saskatoon, so preference would be for individuals living in Saskatoon. Thank you!
  10. This is a project that myself (Christopher) and a classmate of mine (Ziad) started last September. We've had a lot of positive feedback from people who listen, so I wanted to share it with you here once more. It's a totally free resource and we have two episodes dedicated to the medical school interview; what you should be doing to prepare, what to expect on the day, etc. Please feel free to check us out on Facebook, or listen on any major platform (Apple Music, Spotify, Google Podcasts), and I'm happy to answer any specific questions too if you have them, just shoot me a message her
  11. 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
  12. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  13. 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 scho
  14. Does anyone know what the minimum competitive GPA is to get into University of Montreal's Optometry school is? Their website only has the latest year's R-scores. I am a university student who will have more than 60 credits at time of application so my R-score won't count anymore, therefore I'd like an idea of what my GPA should range around! Thanks!
  15. I wanted some peoples opinions on a situation that I am in. I've applied to medical school twice in Canada and have never gotten an interview. I have a cGPA of 3.90, an MCAT score of 515, I am a Canadian citizen and I have recently finished my Bachelor's at McGill University. I have recently been accepted to a British MBBS program at Newcastle University Medicine (Malaysia). I wanted to ask people's opinions on whether it would be more beneficial for me me to get started with medicine in Malaysia now and eventually go through equivalencies and work in Canada or should I find a job or apply for
  16. Hello everyone, I just had a question about the medical schools in Quebec. I would like to know the differences* between the medical programs, especially the ones offered at UdeM and McGill. *Mostly about the admissions, the classrooms, the way of teaching and any other aspect in general...

  18. 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
  19. Hey guys, I'm thinking of applying to UOttawa med this year- I just wanted to know; what is the cut-off for the wGPA for anglophone applicants? On their site it says you can email and ask, but the lady won't be back till october 1st (how convenient). Did anyone manage to email this year? I don't wanna assume it's the same as previous years. Thanks!
  20. Good/regular/bad waitlisted by Western? Want to discuss chances/look for reassurance/rant/chat with other waitlisted applicants? This is the thread for you!
  21. For a university such as UofT which prefers its MD applicants to have research experience, do you think having publications can "make up" for a lower wGPA such as 3.88? I'm worried that I will not be invited for interviews due to my low marks but I have a lot of experience in research and in my opinion, good ECs. Thanks in advance!
  22. Hi! I am currently in the process of applying for an NSERC, and have also just recently interviewed for medical school. The interview went really well, but I am afraid that I won't be allow to undergo the NSERC if I am accepted to medical school since I would be registered for a professional program... Anyone have a similar experience, or can point me in the right direction based on who I should contact?
  23. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone wanted to start practicing for MMI either through skype or in person. We can create a small group. I know we havent heard back yet from most schools, but when we do, a month (in the case of McGill) isnt enough time to get ride of bad habits. Let me know!
