  1. Bonjour, Une personne qui m'est chère vit une situation difficile. Elle a fait ses sciences humaines au cégep avec une bonne cote R (au dessus de 34) et a ensuite fait une session d'université en psychologie. Elle a remarqué que ce n'était pas la carrière qui l'intéressait le plus (et le cheminement pour se rendre au doctorat). Elle s'est forcée de terminer sa session et a obtenu un GPA d'environ 3.9. Elle souhaite dorénavant faire des études en pharmacie, mais elle se demande quel est le meilleur chemin pour entrer en pharmacie et si elle a des bonnes chances d'entrer (refaire ses sciences naturelles au cégep? faire une session universitaire en sciences naturelles?). WARNING: MATHS BELOW J'ai fait des estimations tenant compte de: La bonification d'UdeM de 0,5 Le fait que chaque unité d'université équivaut à 2% de la note collégiale (donc, 12*2%=24%) Le fait que 3.9 de GPA en B.psychologie équivaut à environ 30,017 de cote R selon l'étalon des cotes d'uLaval (https://www.ulaval.ca/sites/default/files/admission/table-des-etalons.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2AMrxpgY6hsat-ui-4hdgyI1qSUrgrfFy-CJWXtMbit9AUceicc9sRCxw) Le fait que cote R pour les cours de formation générale exclusivement était de 33,7, et ce, pour un total de 21,32 unités. Qu'il y avait environ 34,34 unités de formation spécifique aux cours de sciences de la nature au cégep Et j'ai estimé qu'il faudrait donc une cote R de 37,3 à son retour au cégep pour avoir une cote R finale de 35,0. Pour une cote R de 34,5, il lui faudrait une cote R de 36,22. À la suite de tous ces calculs, je me demandais si c'était vraiment le parcours optimal pour faire la transition à pharmacie. Est-ce qu'il vaudrait mieux de faire ses sciences naturelles à l'uni...? En gros, c'est quoi qui maximiserait les chances de rentrer en pharmacie et qui prendrait le moins d'années d'étude? Si vous êtes passés par un chemin similaire ou si vous connaissez quelqu'un qui a fait un changement qui ressemble à ça, votre opinion serait très appréciée
  2. Fall 2019 I will be starting an Honours B.A in Psychology at UOttawa and plan on studying in medicine, completing all my science prerequisites. I know that there isn't a specific degree for medical school but every now and then I worry. Is it really a problem? Should I make the program change(if I can)? Did you or do you know anyone who has gotten into medical school with my degree? sincerely, a (slightly) worried pre-med student
  3. Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone could provide some info on Western's psych program; specifically, in terms of it's difficulty. Or, if anyone has taken psych courses at western, how did you find them? Thank you in advance, any feedback would be highly appreciated!

  5. I've been debating between these two courses for the past 2 days and can't come to a conclusion. I'm looking for the easier course (as bad as it sounds) because I have a packed schedule and would appreciate a break. Should I take Classics 1000 with Steinbock (11:30 am - 12:30 pm on M,W,F) or Lamari (7 pm - 10 pm on T)? I prefer taking it in the morning but I've heard that Lamari is easier. Should I take psych 1000 with Mike instead of Classics 1000? Thanks in advance!
  6. https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/mcat/social-sciences-practice/social-science-practice-tut/e/navigating-the-stages-of-sleep Hi, I am doing some practice from Khan Academy for Psychology and Sociology, Can someone explain to me how this figure has 4 sleep cycles? Thank you!
  7. Does anyone know why we need to study Freud's theories? i thought most of it was disproved?
  8. So I got into UTM for "Behaviour, Genetics and Neurobiology" and these are the courses I have to take for the program... Students in Behaviour, Genetics and Neurobiology take Biology, Calculus, Chemistry (BIO152H, BIO153H5, MAT134Y5, CHM140Y5).What other courses in first year do I have to take for pre requisites for med school? I did some research and it said "Prerequisite courses include two full courses in life sciences and one full course in social science or humanities or language. " for UofT Faculty of Medicine. In general, to be eligible to apply to UofT, McMaster, Western, etc. What courses should i take first year in addition to the required ones in my program. Thanks
  9. 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 likely be completing these courses as an independent student during the 2015-2016 calendar year. However, I know that having a full course load is important for both U of T and Waterloo and so I am wondering whether or not I'll be disadvantaged for completing these courses on a part-time basis after having completed my undergraduate degree. Furthermore, during my undergraduate degree (which is 3 years long here), I withdrew from one course (for reasons that I can explain in an interview) and took a class in the summer to make up for that withdrawal. Therefore, in my 6 semesters as an undergrad, I will have had a full course load (5 classes) in every semester except for one. Could this hurt my chances? 2. For anyone who was once in my situation, I'm curious as to where you think I should take the remaining prereqs: at McGill, at Concordia or maybe even in a CEGEP (if the courses are offered). I'm assuming McGill courses are tougher than Concordia courses so it may be smarter if I simply become an independent student at Concordia. 3. Does anyone know how these pre-req marks will be counted in the overall CGPA? Are they simply added onto my undergrad CGPA? As for the CEGEP pre-reqs (which I suppose they look at as well), how will they be counted, considering a different marking scheme is used in CEGEP? 4. Would you say that a 3.71 (and hopefully 3.75 by the time I graduate) is a good CGPA to be considered for an interview and even for admission at both UofT and Waterloo? The websites don't seem to specify what the average GPA of admitted students has been in the last few years...or even what the GPA of the last admitted student was... 5. Does anyone know of any other Canadian universities (outside Quebec) with a pharmacy program that don't have any quotas or restrictions when it comes to out-of-province applicants? I know Dalhousie or Saskatchewan barely take any out-of-province students for example. 6. This question is mostly for Quebec residents/students: I'm applying to pharmacy at Universite de Montreal and Universite Laval this year as well but I know I'm somewhat disadvantaged because the CRU for psychology is rather low. I'm still going to give it a try because who knows! But if I were to start another undergrad at UdeM next year to hopefully boost my grades and apply to UdeM and Laval AGAIN (and forget about doing the pre-reqs for universities outside of Canada), what undergrad would you suggest I do? I'm assuming I should complete an undergrad in the "connexe" category to have greater chances. Do you think this would be worthwhile? Or should I simply focus on the pre-reqs for UofT and Waterloo and just forget about pharmacy schools in Quebec in general? Any help would be appreciated!!! Thank you!
  10. 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 some of you think I should do...I'm contemplating doing a second undergrad in a different program to boost my GPA up even further. What bachelor's would you recommend [that aren't too hard to get good grades in, and for which there might be jobs if ever this pharmacy thing doesn't work out]? Law, nutrition, physio, speech therapy (orthophonie)? I'm already considering applying in pharmacy to Canadian universities outside of Quebec but they require a bunch of prereqs that I don't have since I'm a Quebec student (Organic 2, Biochem, etc) and their out-of-province quotas just make things harder. One more thing: when UdeM/ULaval/USherbrooke look at your marks, do they convert them into their own 4.3 scale? For instance, would I have a 3.71/4.3 or do they cross multiply and convert my 3.71 to whatever it would be on 4.33? *Si vous voulez me répondre en français, ça me dérange pas du tout! Merci de votre aide
  11. Hey, I'm a 2nd year UG who has been accepted to volunteer in a research lab close to me. It focuses on communication and hearing, so it's a bit of neuro but mostly psych. I really am interested in any kind of research. The PI and PDFs seem really nice and I like the environment but I was wondering about the med school application aspect of this. Should I apply to more "medically related" research labs or stick with this one? Would research in psych (but kinda neuro) even be a plus on my app? also disclaimer - I'm not just doing research for my application. I genuinely am interested in it, but I wanted to make sure that the research I contribute to is one that I can talk about in my application/interview. Thanks for your help!
  12. Hi there! I was wondering what people I should be familiar with for the MCAT (ex: famous psychologists, theories)? Thank you!
