  1. Hi everyone, I am looking for a bit of guidance here. I don't have any medical family or upper-year friends to ask this question to so I thought I would pose it here: what exactly should I be doing over the summer between first and second year? Pre-covid, I likely would have been working my part-time job and continued to do my hospital volunteering and other volunteer projects but they have been cancelled for the last year now. I don't particularly have any interest in doing online-research either as I have no experience and to be honest I cannot spend any more of this year putting in 8-16 hou
  2. Hey guys. Since I have tried getting in to med school in Canada a couple of times 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 USA 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? Physics is not my strong suite so I would prefer an easier school. Also I live in BC so if it is out of province it wou
  3. 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
  4. 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 an
  5. Hi! I'm debating whether if I should take the MCAT this summer (I just finished my first year of undergrad). My reasons are: 1) I'm mostly free during this summer and I'm not planning on taking any summer courses (since I have credits from AP). 2) I have a research position at a lab and currently part of a project (spending at least 30+ hours a week) and I don't think this will take most of my time during the summer. 3) I'm planning on using the MCAT for preparation for my second year courses. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  6. Subletting my place at prime location in downtown Toronto. Have your own private bachelor apartment (kitchen, full bath, storage room), furnished. 1800/month, subletting from mid June-mid-August. 10-15 min walk from all downtown hospitals. Start date negotiable, PM me if interested!
  7. I applied for research positions in the summer and I still haven't received any updates. I went in for interviews to a couple of places. I recently emailed the researchers and was told I would be contacted shortly with updates. I still haven't received a reply. Do you think it's good news or bad news?
  8. For the University of Ottawa Med, their website says this, The equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry with or without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. Does it mean I need 2 full year credits from any of the three (e.g. 1.0 general, 1.0 organic), or 2 full year credits from all 3 (e.g. 1.0 General, 0.5 biochem, 0.5 orgo)? I'm asking this because I have 1 full year chemistry credit already and was wondering if I sho
  9. Hey! Does anyone know which Ontario (or Canadian) medical schools take into consideration summer thesis credits and which ones do not? For example, for Queen's, my understanding is that it is only counted towards cGPA, not 2YGPA. Is this also the case for other schools? Thanks in advance.
  10. I didn't take any English courses during my undergrad, because I figured it would tank my GPA for that year (I really really suck at writing essays). However, I didn't get any interviews this round, so I'm looking at applying to pharmacy & optometry schools along with my second round of med applications this year. Unfortunately, these programs all require English Does anyone have a good recommendation (or a grade distribution!) for a first year level English summer course? I've looked into Queen's, but the grade distribution for the past 2 summers has been very discouraging.
  11. Anyone here by chance taking the bio 235 at Athabaca the coming summer? Plan on taking it and just wanted to get a study group of some sort going so we can all help each other out
  12. Hi, Just wondering what sections I should include a summer studentship like the NSERC USRA? I was thinking of including it in the 1. employment section to talk about my work experience in the lab/duties, 2. to include it in the awards section to talk about the award and the necessary qualifications/competition involved, and 3. to include it in the research section to specifically talk about what my research was about. Is it okay to mention it in all 3 sections (I will be discussing different pieces of info in each section)? What do you all think? Thanks for the help!!
  13. Okay so I don't know who to talk to about this... I'm currently in my second year of medschool and I have 3 years left until graduation. Now my parents dont really have much money so I'm paying for everything on my own using student loans from the government and the credit line offered to medstudents. The fact that Im accumulating debt makes me feel really uneasy, but I was always able to deal with it by telling myself that I have no choice, its all essential expenses and its okay. I have to live somewhere! I need food to live! But its summer now and there's also the question of time
  14. Hey guys, For those of you who have applied to the IMS SURP scholarships in the past, approximately when did you hear back from them? Thanks
  15. Hello! I am a first year pharmacy student and I came across the undergraduate summer research program at the Faculty of Pharmacy at University of Toronto. I was hoping there would be someone here who has participated in this program and could tell me about their experience. I have already gotten in touch with the supervisor I am interested in working with but any other tips on the application process? Letter of intent? How was the research experience?
  16. Hi guys, I don't know what I should do this summer so I'm looking for a little bit of guidance. Stats: -going into 5th year -did MCAT last summer while working (11/10/9) and a worse mcat before that with a summer off - gpa is sitting right now ~3.45. Should be near ~3.5 next year graduation (best/last two year gpa will be ~3.9, but this will only make me competitive for application after I graduate so I'd need a year off) - 1 year research experience (no reference though), 3 years other research experience (well known study, but mostly an administrative position) - 2-3 really stro
  17. Hello, everyone. So I've just finished my second year of my undergrad. I want to retake three courses in the summer because my school's retake policy is that they replace your first grade with whatever grade you received after the retake (even if it's worse). Now I'm aware that most med schools don't look at summer courses, especially for GPA considerations. I want to retake these courses for my GPA for graduation—I want to graduate with a 90% average, and this is pretty much impossible unless I get rid of some of my lowest grades. So what I'm saying is, I want to retake these three co
  18. Hello! I will be working at RGN in May through August. I am looking for a summer residence that is within a 10 minute walk or so to the uOttawa medical school campus. I will be continuing on with completing a research project the following academic term at RGN, and would consider extending my renting period from September-April. However, the main focus right now is getting a spot for the summer months. If you have a place you are trying to sublet over the summer months, please let me know! The room can be furnished or unfurnished. My email is joe_marquis10@hotmail.com Thank
