  1. Join us! The Pre-Medicine Diversity Symposium is an annual UBC faculty-sponsored event designed to encourage people from all walks of life to apply to medical school. This event is tailored to applicants who consider themselves ‘non-traditional’ for reasons that may include having a non-science background, applying later in life, having children and family, having financial or personal hardship, or belonging to a demographic underrepresented in medicine. There will be events at all 4 sites in BC - Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria & Prince George. FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/506704993595930/ Google Form RSVP (this confirms your registration): https://forms.gle/Rkgm2exxU4RaQTWi6

  3. Here is my unusual path to graduation (I don't know if GPA is calculated in the same way over all schools): Year 1: UBC - General Science --- Year 2: Université de Montréal - Neuroscience --- Years 3-5: Université de Montréal - Computer Science --- I would like to apply to medical school after my Master's (most likely ending in 2022), but I'm currently unsure where my best options lie. I realize that currently, my portfolio is not comptetitive. I would like to know if it can be made competitive, without doing a second bachelor's. Should I aim for Alberta schools in order to take advantage of my residency, and Quebec schools since the reserved out-of-province spots may have fewer applicants per spot? Should I get Quebec residency, as I have heard that their system is less competitive overall? Thank you in advance. Quick facts: I am currently on a gap year, starting a Working Holiday Visa abroad in November. In 2020/2021 I am planning to start a Master's in Artificial Intelligence, and I could try to focus my research on medical applications. I took 4 courses per semester in my CompSci degree. I did 1 research internship on autonomous vehicles, and 1 industry internship in industry. I am an Alberta resident, but could gain Quebec residency by working there for 1 year. I speak English and French fluently. For some schools, I am missing courses, for example, a second English course and Organic Chemistry. I believe I could get high grades on these courses were I to take them in preparation for applying. I have not taken the MCAT, but I would have time to study for and take it this fall. I have done some volunteer work, but none medical since second year. I was Vice President of a university cultural association for 4th and 5th year.
  4. I am determined to attend medical school in Canada. Would love any advice regarding the few options I have Currently studying for the MCAT and going into the fourth year of my honours Science undergrad- 1st year GPA 3.21 (technically 4.5 course load, including my initial grade and my improved grade for my 1 repeated course) 2nd year GPA 3.44 3rd year GPA 3.63 I'm assuming these are my options (based on years of obsessive research on forums lmao): 1) Do a 5th year. Attain 3.8+ in year 4 & 5. Apply to Western in my 5th year. If unsuccessful, complete a master's program. Apply again to Western and Queen's (perhaps Ottawa?) Any other schools I would have a chance at? 2) Do a second undergraduate degree and open up doors to other schools. Could do this after completing my degree in four years or after doing the additional 5th year. I am studying hard for the MCAT and would say I have unique ECs. I appreciate any honest insight (optimistic/pessimistic). Thank you in advance!
  5. I'm an anthropology major, and have no publications as of yet (hopefully soon but I'm not counting on it for next years application cycle). But I do have a fair amount of research and field experience in biological anthro (data collection, excavation, forensic recovery of human remains). Will this be viewed by adcoms the same as if it were, microbio research or something? Is all research viewed similarly or should I seek opportunities in, for example, my university's cancer cell lab?
  6. Does anyone have any experience navigating the course load discussions? It says you need to have taken 10 courses in your last two years of undergrad (so 5 each term). My program would split courses into double so they could squeeze more classes into our degree (ie. FSN 706 would be two classes on two different subjects and we'd get two different marks). I did what most students did and did all my electives in my last year part time. So... i don't meet that course load requirement. They said they will allow for it if your program is structured differently, but it's a B. Des, so I feel like they won't be familiar with it. Anyone ever navigate this? Wondering if/who I should maybe sit down with to discuss whether I'm even able to apply... I also graduated way back in 2013 if that matters and have an MA since then
  7. [deleted] Thank you for all those that commented. I appreciate all those that took the time to read it through.
  8. Hi all, I am currently an undergrad computer engineering student going into second year. During my first year, my GPA was 3.88 for the first half, but it dropped to 3.5 during the second half due to my health condition. I was unable to have a full course load during that time for the same reason. I am very interested in medical school, however, and I would like to take biomedical engineering for my minor during undergrad. For extracurricular activities, I am currently involved in three different clubs, but they are mostly academic/research oriented. I am also volunteering as an executive at a non-profit student organization, where we run programs at public libraries to teach children from underrepresented communities programming for free. I heard from other people that in order to meet academic prerequisites, I may need to take summer courses in chemistry and biology, given that computer engineering program at my school has a very full course load and I can not take them during fall/winter. During the next few years, I will also try my best to get involved in biomedical engineering related researches. But other than that, I am really lost right now, and do not know where to get started in order to plan for applying to med school. Specifically, I am very confused about a few things: 1) GPA. Given the current GPA I have earned during first year, the best I could do over the next three years would probably be bringing it back up to around 3.7~3.8. If that happens to be the case, do I still have a chance to get into medical school? Also, I am really worried about my not-full course load during the second semester of first year. Would that affect anything? Also, I have heard that first year GPA is not always considered for medical school applications. Is that true? 2) MCAT. I know that in order to get into medical school I need to take it, but I don't know when would be the best time to take it? Given that I have almost no biology/chemistry related courses until the 3rd year in my undergraduate program, how much time should I put into preparing for MCAT? 3) Volunteering/Extracurricular/Research/Employment. Should I focus on activities related to medical field? Or would engineering-related ones be okay? Any advices will be really appreciated! Thank you!
