  3. Seeing as there was no other thread for UBC's Entry-to-Practice PharmD application cycle this year (Class of 2025), I decided to make one looking at other threads from previous years that I found were really helpful. If anyone has any comments or questions, please post below! Good luck everyone with your applications!
  4. Hi all, I was hoping to apply to a PT or OT grad school in the future and I'm currently enrolled in an anatomy course that I ended up failing the midterm for and now it's likely I won't do as well in the course or even pass the course. I have the chance to withdraw from my course right now with the W but would this option be better to take right now than a bad grade? How would a W (especially in an intensive anatomy course), look for grad school admissions to PT/OT?
  5. www.MedsHousing.com Kimberley BC "Very private and sunny walkout basement suite in our rancher style house in the very quiet and desirable Kimberley neighbourhood of Upper Chapman Camp. The suite has a full private bathroom, a well-stocked kitchen and is steps away from the hot tub. Our backyard overlooks Kimberley Alpine Resort and has a trampoline and zipline. The house is located on a ridge above the Rails to Trails (27 km paved pathway to Cranbrook) so bring your bike. We have fat bikes to lend our med student guests in winter (or snowshoes) as we know you'll need some
  6. So I’m currently a grade 12 bc student with offers for both ubc and uofc for kinesiology. I am wondering if moving to Calgary for undergrad is worth the albertan in province status in the future. but tbh I would prefer going to ubc much more because I already know a lot of older friends in the program that could give me advice and guide me through the program. Would it still be worth moving? Another thing that I could possibly do is transfer to Calgary after my 2nd year. any thoughts on what I should do would be very helpful. im also not dead se
  7. Currently a grade 12 student in Vancouver BC. I’ve applied to Calgary, Toronto and UBC for kin. I’ve been accepted to both Calgary and Toronto but am still waiting for UBC. But at this point I feel like my chances of getting into UBC are pretty slim even though it’s my first choice as admissions is ending soon. My goal is to get into med school one day and I’m hoping for some advice as to which program would give me a better chance to achieve my goal.
  8. Hi everyone :) I'm a student from one of the prairies schools applying to IM this cycle. i was lucky to get some interviews including uoft and ubc (my top choices). I've never been to vancouver or toronto but I heard things about each city from residents. I really want to move out of the prairie for this next chapter of my life but im having a hard time deciding between these two schools in terms of ranking. Could you guys share anything you know about each program? I heard that uoft is notorious for being service heavy and not too collegial - but I also heard that it's easier to g
  9. Hi! I'm planning on going into OT. However, every OT I come across has done their schooling abroad. Has anyone done theirs in Canada and is willing to share the process? PT seems to have more descriptive and consistent requirements. What is the GPA cut off, do your EC's matter? And how many schools did you apply to and where was your undergrad done? Thanks in advance
  10. Has anyone gotten rejected with an above average interview? What did you improve and how drastically to gain admission the following cycle(s)? Assuming some things are fixed (i.e. GPA) but others are malleable, such as EC descriptions/additions and MCAT re-write. I am wondering if anyone found that other things such as changing references also made a difference.
  11. I saw someone do this last year and thought it was very interesting and figured I might as well start one this year Answers are anonymous! Last year they differentiated between the non-rural and rural seats so I did the same- even though we don't really get to choose what seat we get haha, but I'm assuming it was pertaining to whether you filled out the rural section and think you may have a high RRSS. In addition, if anyone would like to speak to why they are choosing such in the comments I think that could be interesting too
  12. Join us! The Pre-Medicine Diversity Symposium is an annual UBC faculty-sponsored event designed to encourage people from all walks of life to apply to medical school. This event is tailored to applicants who consider themselves ‘non-traditional’ for reasons that may include having a non-science background, applying later in life, having children and family, having financial or personal hardship, or belonging to a demographic underrepresented in medicine. There will be events at all 4 sites in BC - Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria & Prince George. FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/
  13. Hey everyone! Firstly, a HUGE congratulations to all applicants in the 2019/2020 cycle who finished their interview at UBC during the past couple of weekends!! Take the time to pat yourselves on the back for finishing up with the stressful portion of your applications! It's just a matter of waiting until May -- I sincerely wish you all the best of successes no matter what happens. I can definitely understand how stressful the wait can be though, so if anyone would like to chat via PM, please feel free to message me. It's much easier said than done, but try to distract yourself with so

  16. My university record is not exactly the best thing I can showcase, but I think I'm at a point where I could try harder and actually have a chance to study medicine. Here's my record: 1st year: 77% (27 credits) 2nd year: 82% (28 credits) - 1W ( I took the course again in the 2nd semester) 3rd year: 85.5% (30 credits) 4th year: I'm expecting ~ 89% average (30 credits total, 1W) 5th year: I know what to take for GPA-boosting purposes and will likely reach the early 90s. My AGPA with 1st year taken out as of today is 84.1%, although will likely rise to about 85%
  17. How does UBC translate the credits I did to their system if I go to U of T and did a full course load- is that not 120 credits? What's a one year course load? Confused how they decide whether I have enough credits to be eligible for weighted GPA

  19. I have read in several places on premed 101 (and heard from several other students) that multiple family medicine programs allow you to add applications to additional sites (within their program) after interviewing. I am having trouble finding reference to this within the carms program description pages. I am wondering if anyone knows: 1. Which FM programs you can add additional site applications to late? (Particularly interested in UBC, Dalhousie, NOSM, and Memorial.) 2. How to logistically do this---assuming within carms portal exactly as you applied for other programs? 3. If
  20. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?

  24. Here is my unusual path to graduation (I don't know if GPA is calculated in the same way over all schools): Year 1: UBC - General Science --- Year 2: Université de Montréal - Neuroscience --- Years 3-5: Université de Montréal - Computer Science --- I would like to apply to medical school after my Master's (most likely ending in 2022), but I'm currently unsure where my best options lie. I realize that currently, my portfolio is not comptetitive. I would like to know if it can be made competitive, without doing a second bachelor's. Should I ai
