I started university straight out of high school. I did 2.5 years before being kicked out. My poor academic performance was due to a variety of reasons including trauma and mental illness. I took some time off and I went back to school in the 2020/2021 academic year. I'm currently doing well academically and personally. I'm halfway through my degree. I calculated my gpa using the OMSAS scale: Year 1 - 2.60 (30 credits) Year 2 - 2.05 (22 credits) Year 3 - 0.7 (12 credits) 2020/2021 - 3.96 (30 credits) I've never taken the MCAT but I've done some basic science cour
Hi all, Anyone have any familiarity with Western's Bachelor of Medical Science undergrad? I'm a non-traditional applicant looking to start a second undergraduate degree starting this September 2021 at Western university. I'm scoping out which faculty will allow me to do a 4-year equivalent second undergrad in 2 years while having at least 3/5 courses at the 3000 (year 1) and 4000 (year 2) level. My questions are: -Is getting into the BMSc for a second undergrad difficult? My 1st undergrad was a B. Sc in Bio with approximately a 3.0 cGPA -Is it wise to pursue a BMSc as a se
Hi everyone, I'm currently in the process of trying to apply to medical school this year in Canada, where I'm from. Im currently doing a post-diploma Bachelor of Health Science in Medical Laboratory Technology with Dalhousie and am set to graduate this May. The program is online-only so, the entire time I've been enrolled, I've been working full-time at my job as a MLT while balancing school and other things outside of school and work. Because I have been simultaneously working full-time, I decided to do 4 courses for each semester, ranging from 3000-4000 level course (few 1000-2000 level
Hi Everyone, So, I have recently come to realize that becoming a physican is what I want to do. I did my undergrad at McMaster and completed a degree in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng), and now I am doing a thesis-based Master's in Biomedical Engineering at University of Toronto. Now, I realized that OMSAS does not evaluate grades the same way McMaster did, for example, it dosen't matter if you took a 4 credit or 5 credit course, the course is given the same weighting as a 3 unit course. This seems really unfair because the reason those courses were 4 or 5 unit courses was
