  1. Hello, I am starting my PharmD program in September 2021 while also reapplying for medical school this year. I am confused if whether or not I would include this in my application? On page 22 of the application guide it says "Courses from September 2021 to April 2022: Enter the courses you plan to take and leave the “Completed” checkbox unchecked. You can take different courses later without notifying us, with two exceptions: • If you change your mind about which English course you will take, you must message us to tell us the new course name, number, and institution. • If you are completing 90 credits and change your courses after you apply, please message us with your new courses. If your 2020/2021 courses are at a new institution (an institution you have not started attending yet, so you can’t submit a transcript), please message us so we can change the transcript status for this institution to “Not Yet Required.” Does anyone have experience with starting a new degree while applying, and if the new degree was included? Thank you!
  2. Hey guys I’m really confused as to what I should do and can really use some advice. I originally wrote my MCAT last summer and I didn’t do as good as I wanted to (Canadian). If I don’t get accepted to med school this year I should retake the MCAT this summer. I also want to expand my options and apply to USA schools this summer. However the problem is I didn’t take physics 1 (only did physics 2) and it is a prerequisite for basically all the schools. So would it be doable to study for the Mcat while also taking physics 1 condensed? Physics 1 would be running from May 1st to June 15th and I will retake the Mcat like early august or end of July. Basically my four options are: rush the Mcat retake prep so I can take the Mcat before summer school physics starts. I have all my notes from the first time I took, I just need to work on cars and review my notes again but I feel like I don’t remember anything lol. just take physics 1 in the summer (lectures are Mon/Wed and virtual (covid) labs Wed) while also studying for the MCAT screw applying to American med schools and just leave physics and study for the Mcat full time this summer for Canadian schools only. Taking physics in the fall isn’t an option for me because I’m starting my one year masters program in the fall. Also most Canadians don’t get into USA schools so is it even worth it? take the MCAT and just apply to USA med schools without the physics prerequisite and if I get into a school I can try to take the one physics course the summer prior to matriculation. If anyone has experience taking a class while also Mcat studying let me know thank you!
  3. Hi, I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask this but I had a question about American Med School Prereqs. I have tried getting in to med school in Canada a couple of times now, but now I want to broaden my chances and try to apply to American Med schools for the upcoming application cycle. However, I only took one semester of physics during my undergrad and I graduated already. In order to fulfill the requirements for American Med Schools I need one more semester of physics. Has anyone taken Physics in the summer and can make me recommendations of which school they took it at and how I would go about taking a course after I already graduated (would I register for undergrad again or continuing studies)? Thanks in advance!
  4. I was just wondering how UWO calculates my grade percentage. My 2 best years are: year 3 : 84% year 4 : 93% do they take both those numbers and divide it by 2? Or do they average all 20 courses? Thank you!
  5. I have been hearing that all U of M looks at is GPA/MCAT/Casper. I have heard that they don't look at your ECs. Is this true?
  6. Hi, I'm still in high school and I'm looking at which "premed" program to apply to next year that focuses on preparing students for medicine. I know that any program is good as long as you can get a good GPA and high MCAT scores, but are they any specific programs (in Canada) that gear specifically towards premed? Thanks in advance!
  7. Is it critical to do research during med school? Are there alternatives to it so that residency application is not disadvantaged? Do particular residency programs care more/less (eg. U of T)? Is there a specific time when it's most preferable to pursue it?
  8. Hey folks, a quick question. Did you check if all of your verifiers received the UofA email for verification? I asked one of my verifiers, and it seems he has not received it anything yet from UofA. Do all activity verifiers get checked? If so, then does it simply mean that this individual who has not received anything yet will be emailed a bit later? I ask this because all the other verifiers got emailed last week, except perhaps this person. So I'm not sure if I should talk to UofA about it and perhaps tell them to resend the email. (Btw, I am an in-province applicant, if that would help with anything) Thanks again.
  9. Does capser send test results straight to McGill after they are done being marked? The reason I am asking is because I wrote my test on Oct 14th, 2018 and my results are still pending which means my online web app still shows they have not received or processed my casper score. Just a little worried since the deadline is tonight, and the casper score is all I'm missing lol
  10. Hey everyone! I know these chance me type posts are pretty looked down upon but I just wanted to get a good sense if I should apply to McGill or not. My CGPA with McGill is 3.83 with my option 2 science prereq at around 3.93. I have pretty great ECs, played american football (team captain) for almost 10 years, played ultimate frisbee, have about 1.5 years of research experience (got an acknowledgement on a paper), research award (basically NSERC but for glycobiology), a lot of volunteer opportunities in my old neighborhood (daycares, clothing drives, teaching STEM to racialized youth of Toronto) I just hear that OOP is pretty competitive since it is only like 10 spots.. lol
  11. Hi all, I am planning out my fall semester and was thinking about taking 3 or 4 online courses to increase my GPA for applications in December. Do you have any recommendations for online courses that are worth considering particularly in the 3rd year or higher? I heard good things about Athabasca courses but cannot find any specific threads. All the best
  12. Hi all, Just wondering about the level of French proficiency needed on day 1. I do understand there is some interaction with francophone patients and staff, and I want to make sure I am ready. I have never officially studied French, and most of my education has been informal - family, tv, books etc. I have decided to put a lot of time improving my French skills this year, and was wondering what goal should I sat for me, to be comfortable at day 1.
