  1. Hey everyone! I'm in my 5th and final year at Carleton studying HBSc. Neuroscience and Mental Health. I'll be graduating this year with a 3.2-3.3 gpa. I was looking into doing a second undergrad degree that will last 2 years. I've applied to UTSC health policy but I'm also looking for some other programs that will last the 2 years and would be a bit easier to get a good gpa in, please let me know of any suggestions. Thanks in advance!!
  2. 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
  3. Hi everyone, So I'm finishing up my BBA with no science courses under my belt (I decided on medicine late in the game, during my 4th year). I really wasn't planning on applying to further schooling, much less switching to medicine so my grades weren't a huge priority to me and I didn't do so hot. My biggest concern is that with a low GPA, my application might not even get looked at, even if I do well on the MCAT and get some good extracurricular experience. My averages by year are: 1 - 3.76 2 - 3.28 3 - 3.42 4 - 3.09 5 - 3.95 (estimated) Cumulativ
  4. Hello everyone, I am currently a Master's student in a research-based program at UofT. This will be my first time applying to medical school (as well as a few MD/PhD programs), and I am hoping to hit most of the Ontario schools and McGill. I would love and appreciate some honest (but maybe hopeful) advice as an applicant for this upcoming cycle. I was born and raised in rural Ontario, but I went to do my undergraduate degree at UofCalgary, which in hindsight, has not benefitted me at all. Their grading system was awful (my already-low GPA drops a bit after OMSAS conversion I b
  5. Hello! I have BSc and a Master’s major in Biology. Science heavy but my WES undergrad GPA 2.4 and they deleted my whole first year (according to Canadian grading system so they deleted my first year UG) I actually thought my 1st year was high cos I was one of those top students, and then family problems and my grades went downhill. Anyway, my grad school was science-heavy as well and with thesis - 3.9 GPA and best thesis. WES Evaluation is I have 3 year Bachelor's and Master's degree. I think my EC’s are quite good. Any advice on how to boost my GPA? Should I do Special Master's Program? I'm m
  6. Hey y'all, I have recently found the desire to pursue medicine in my mid-20s, I am currently an Emergency Department RN and working in this setting, seeing what Physicians do an their expanded scope of practise has given me a strong desire to pursue a career in medicine. However, during my undergrad I was not focused on this, I had a full time job as well as the demands of nursing school so my cGPA was around a 3.38 (Best two years were not great either, did not break 3.6). So that being said I have been considering a second degree, however I don't want to do a degree just for the sake o
  7. Hi everybody, So I'm in my last semester of my BBA undergrad and I've decided to switch to medicine. I'm looking at Ontario med schools in particular. I didn't take any science classes during my degree so I'm going back in the fall to get the right prerequisites. (bonus function of these courses: my GPA is a 3.6 or [9.7 on 12 pt. scale] and this could be a way to focus on my grades and boost it) I've got my humanities credits covered with econ, languages, and other random electives but I have about 6-8 science courses I'll need (depending on if they're lab based or not) and some of
  8. Good day, I hope everyone is doing well. So I have asked about this in another Forum (under the similar username of this Premed101 account) and did get some positive replies from medical students and current undergraduate students. But I'm still facing the dilemma, so someone told me to post here in Premed101 to get more responses in order to make my decision. Please if you can take some time out and help me decide I'll be very grateful. I'm a 25y/o from Ontario, I dropped out of high school in my late teens due to personal problems and depression, then at the age of 21 I decided to go ba

  10. Hello, on the McGill site it states that you can be admitted on the basis of your second degree GPA if you have completed 45 credits by the Nov 1 deadline. Say I start a 2 year after degree this September. How would I be able to meet the 45 credits by Nov of next year? (nov 2021?) Thanks Policy: https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/requirements/requirements-edu/degree-requirements
  11. TL;DR: Addiction fxcked my undergraduate degree making my 4yr degree an 8 yr one. I have a decent 2yr gpa (3.88). Is it even worth it to apply to Western and Queens? Before I begin, I want to make it clear that I'm not looking for anyone's sympathy. I just want guidance on how to move forwards! I started my undergraduate degree in 2012. I had a 3.0ish cGPA (I was not thinking about applying to med school at this time) going into my spring semester of 3rd year when I developed a drug addiction. I ended up ruining my aGPA for the year. I failed even further in 4th year (<2.0 cgpa).
  12. Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot, but I'm currently entering my third year at Western and have only now realized I really want to pursue medicine. That said, my first two years were pretty bad, and I'm not sure what to do or how to improve my chances. I have pretty solid extracurriculars and work experience, so my main concern is having a GPA that's competitive enough for an interview, because I was uninformed and didn't realize that GPA was king and I focused so heavily on bolstering my non-academics. My first semester of first yea
  13. Hey all, I am a non-science major seeking some advice/opinions about my current situation about increasing my chances in getting into medical school. I originally graduated with a BA in Psychology and Visual Art, and did some soul searching after that. I recently went back to uni in the Fall 2019, and I am currently enrolled in a BA Honours Psychology program. I'm taking extra courses to upgrade my former GPA of 3.0. I know its not great, but coming back as a mature student (I'm 27 years old), I know what direction I want to take in my life. I've also been volunteering at my local ho
  14. Hey everyone! I recently graduated from a nursing program in Ontario and have decided that I want to write the MCAT this August. The problem is that my nursing program barely covered any of the prerequisite courses that are important for the MCAT - I have two sems of psych/soc, one sem of human biochemistry, and perhaps some physiology- and microbiology-related stuff covered by a couple of my other classes. But I have zero chem, organic chem and physics prereqs. I really can’t afford to take these courses and am hoping I can self study this info with Khan Academy and Kaplan. Just wonderin
  15. Hi Everyone, In brief, I am a PhD student studying medicine in Canada. My biggest hurdle as I apply to medical schools is most definitely my GPA. >undergrad GPA: 2.8 >graduate GPA: 3.9 (Though this is a thesis-based degree, I have taken a course (or two) every single semester over my 5 year PhD) [Based off of this year's entry statistics for almost all Canadian and US schools, my MCAT score is competitive. I have hundreds of hours of extracurricular activities ranging from volunteering, community service, student groups, leadership, etc. I have 100+ hours of shadowin
  16. I'm going into grade 12 next year and I have the possibility of becoming an EU student. I was thinking of going to a university in the EU (France, Ireland, or Germany) so that I can save a lot of money on tuition. Plus in Ireland undergrad degrees are only 3 years so I could take a gap year without feeling like I "missed out" (which isn't really something I feel anyways). I was wondering if this would harm my chances of getting into a medical school in Canada? I am an Ontario resident and my place of residency would mostly likely not change due to healthcare (I am type 1 diabetic and probably
  17. Sorry if I’m not supposed to post here! My UG is Psychology and my schools of interest don’t require prerequisites, has anyone been in a similar situation and self studied for the MCAT? how long did you give yourself? Did you study while in school? TIA

  19. Okay I know 6 is a lot but please read.I started a degree online back in 2013 and hated it. I pretty much neglected it because my parents borderline forced me (as I had a good job in a small town without a Uni). It was in HR and after i just didn't bother with the first semester but said I would give it a second go - same outcome. Not one ounce of me took it seriously nor thought about long term outcome.ANYWAYS, since then i've been doing my psychology degree, full course load and in class (I relocated). I have a 3.8 GPA and have been volunteering for 3 years now. I've submerged myself in the
  20. Hello all, I just finished my 2nd UG degree (which was 2 years) last month and was hoping that some of the fine folk on this forum can provide me with some help on what I should do next and realistically where am I competitive. There is a wealth of information on this forum and I have been scouring it but I feel awfully confused. Any who... here are my OMSAS GPA stats from my 2nd UG: Year 1 GPA = 3.97 (3.969) Year 2 GPA = 3.94 (3.938) 2YGPA = 3.95 So obviously in my previous degree, my grades are not great, my CGPA for both degrees combined is a 3.51. Also in my last year
