  1. Bonjour guys, j'ai besoin de votre précieuse aide et expérience dans mon dilemme ... je vous écoute (lis) .. HELP!!!! Donc: - J'ai un DEC en Sciences de la Nature (profil santé) donc j'ai tous mes préalables en sciences pour pouvoir faire Médecine, Pharmacie, Médecine Dentaire (obtenu en 2016) (cote r pas fameuse) - J'ai une mineure en Psychologie 30 crédits (faite car je voulais augmenter ma cote r, gros regret = j'ai empiré ma cote r : décès dans ma famille, beaucoup de problèmes financiers, bref je voulais obtenir au moins le diplôme) J'ai 2 choix qui s'offrent à moi: 1. Retourn
  2. Hi there, I am a third year undergrad trying to get into Dentistry, specifically aiming for the University of Manitoba. If anyone could help and steer me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. There's a lot of info on here but most of it is for other schools such as UofT. So I guess I have a couple of questions for anyone who knows about UManitoba's acceptance rates, averages etc. 1) There is a lot of talk AGPAs but not a lot about core course averages. If you were accepted or know anyone who has been accepted into the program, do you mind sharing your AGPA as well a
  3. 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
  4. Hey folks, Any ideas on if any Canadian schools reject or frown upon taking an online course during undergrad? It happens to be a biochemistry course, which I know is a prereq for Ottawa. WIll this make any difference? Also, do these things matter for US schools, at least ones that accept Canadians?
  5. 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
  6. Hi all, I wasn't sure if the psyc courses I took in University of Guelph could be seen as humanities/social science prerequisites for Ottawa so I emailed them. In the email reply that I got from them, they stated that "The Humanities or Social Sciences requirements can be completed by any courses that have no relations to Science. For i.e. Sociology, Psychology, Math, Religion, Administration, English Literature, English Writing..." I got confused when I saw Math as a qualifying Humanities / Social Sciences prereq, so I asked them if Math and Statistics can be counted, and they said yes.
  7. So, I did my undergrad in Kinesiology at Queen's, and took all of my prerequisites for Queens PT (I.e. Anatomy, Psych, Stats, Physiology) in my first 1-2 years. However, I didn't do so well, and so I will be re-taking all of my prerequisites, except at Athabasca U since I no longer live in Kingston. Is this allowed/standard practice? Can I simply take the Athabasca equivalents for the Queen's prerequisites (As listed on the Queen's site) and choose to submit my prerequisites from the Athabasca courses instead of my old Queen's courses? If it makes a difference, the Queen's courses w
  8. I'm currently a first-year student at Concordia University in Montreal, and am looking to satisfy the Biology II w/ Lab during my second year. (Just finished BIOLOGY 1) However, at Concordia, there is no General Biology 2 course w/ Lab, instead, there are 2 separate lecture courses (BIOL 225 and BIOL 226 without labs) that are mandatory prerequisites for a full-on Lab Course (BIOL 227). Essentially, I have to take 9 Credits worth of courses (3 separate classes) to satisfy 1 year of Biology w/lab requirement of Med school. Would it be possible to take Biology 2 w/ Lab in Cegep
  9. Hello, I am planning on applying to PT at UfoT, McMaster, and Queens for Fall 2017, and just want to know what my chances of getting in are. My subGPA (last 10 undergrad classes?) is ~3.9, and cumulative GPA is ~3.7. This is not including my graduate level courses for which my avg GPA for the 3 courses completed is around a 3.7. I'm currently completing a research-intensive master's program (ending Aug 2017) and was awarded a CIHR scholarship for my Master's thesis (which is highly related to PT). I've got a couple conference presentations/publications under my belt, and have worked a
  10. Does anyone know if the general biology perquisite with lab for Ottawa has to be a first year course? I went to Guelph and not all of our first year general bio courses have labs. I have taken a full year 3rd year anatomy course with lab, would that count?
  11. Hey guys! I'm currently going into my 3rd year at the University of Ottawa (studying biochemistry). I've been looking into applying to dental school this upcoming fall and I see that UBC, Dalhousie, and Manitoba all require two introductory chemistry classes but to my knowledge there is only one intro to chem class at the University of Ottawa (CHM1311). There is also CHM1301, but I'm pretty sure you only take that class if you havent done chemistry in high school. Anyways, I'm wondering if anyone is finding themselves in a similar situation and if they know which second chemistry class I shoul
  12. Hi Everyone, I am curious about whether anyone else is applying/has applied with a non-science background. Will my lack of the traditional prerequisites hurt my application? Would this fall into the category of transcripts not being in congruence with the MCAT score? Or will they simply take the overall GPA + MCAT score? I have advanced degrees in the humanities as well. Am curious if anyone else is in the same boat?
  13. Hi, I'm a student currently residing in Montreal. I'm about to complete my bachelor of science in psychology at McGill University and I'm interested in applying to pharmacy in Ontario (at Waterloo and UofT) for the Fall of 2017. My current CGPA is a 3.71 which I'm hoping to increase by the time I've graduated. 1. However, I am still missing some pre-requisite courses for my application, namely: Genetics, Organic 2, Microbiology, Biochem for Waterloo and Organic 2, Physical Chemistry and Biochem for U of T (these courses are not required for pharmacy applications in Quebec). I will most
  14. Hi guys, So I found out only a week ago that the UBC has decided to drop all prerequisites (except for English) for applicants (decision was passed Jan 21st). This sucked for me as I had applied to complete Biochem online (my only missing prereq) through Athabasca U in December and therefore I am ineligible for a refund or withdrawal without a permanent "W" on my transcript. I really want to withdraw from the course as I am only 2/13 done, and I can focus more on my research/ECs/TAing (I'm a first year MSc student) but I am afraid that this one W will be perceived as poor academic com
  15. Hello, I'm about to complete my bachelor's degree in psychology at McGill University and my GPA after 75 credits is a 3.71. I'm hoping to raise it even further this winter semester. I'm really interested in entering UdeM's pharmacy program, but I unfortunately didn't do my research before I went into psychology and I didn't realize that it was a "programme non-connexe" AND that its IFG isn't as high as other programs. I applied last year to UdeM Pharmacy when my GPA was a 3.56 and I ranked like 75 out of 111 in the "non-connexe" category. I guess I just need some guidance as to what
  16. I know that most schools only require prerequisites to be complete before May 31st, however I was wondering if anyone has been admitted conditionally upon completion of their prerequisites? I will hopfully be finished mine in April well before the deadline, however if acceptance letters go out mid may the schools may have made admission decisions before seeing my completed prereqs.
  17. Apparently one of my English courses don't count at UBC?! Anyone else having this issue? Does anyone know where I can take a university junior English course online or by correspondence? I have no time this year to take it during school!
  18. Hi, just a quick question for everyone out there. I'm a McGill Economics student and am struggling to complete all my med school prerequisites on time before I graduate. I'm thinking instead of taking an English course at McGill (which is hard and difficult to score in), I would take a second one from Athabasca University online. I've already taken one so far, which I've found to be pretty straight forward. I was just wondering if application officers would give more value to a course taken at McGill rather than an English course taken online. Also, is anyone here an Economics following t
  19. Hey everyone! I'm currently going into my third year at McMaster and have yet to take a biochemistry course - which some of the potential med schools I'm looking into specify needing. Many of my peers have taken Biochem 2EE3 but due to another required course and limited course listings, I cannot take it due to a conflict. Instead, I am considering Biochem 3G03 as an alternative. Both courses (according to course reviews) cover different material. To my fellow Marauders or Alumni who have gone on to pursue medicine, is either course particularly more beneficial or liked/needed
  20. Hello, My main question is this: I want to take a 5th year of undergraduate after I complete my business degree this summer. This is because I need to take physics, org chem, and biochem. My GPA is 3.87 (converted from UVic) so I am not taking the 5th year for GPA reasons. However, I have seen that some med schools dont like people taking 5th year courses that do not contribute towards a degree. Would I be falling into this category? TL;DR: Will graduate with business degree in summer with high GPA Need prerequisites Will medical schools accept my prerequisites if i take them i
  21. Hi there, Currently in progress in this class - human physiology. I have noticed on the forums that a few of you are doing this as well. Has anyone done a midterm/exam yet? Just wondering if anyone could shed some light on if they are similar to the quizzes or if there is any lab content on them. Many Thanks, I.C.
