  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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/
  6. 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

  9. 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%
  10. 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

  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. Did UBC remove the admission statistics? I can't seem to find them anymore

  17. 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
  18. I am trying to reapply to UBC med and it is not allowing me to enter anything into the current application. I would think that this is because I need to pay the fee however under that section it says "paid" and has the payment dated from last year (2018). Anyone else having this issue? Thanks
  19. I clearly need to go back to school to bring my gpa up. I'm just conflicted on what would be the best route to do so. I initially planned to go to ubc pharmacy as the courses would be relevant to the medical field and it would be a good back-up career. But apparently there are easier ways to improve ones gpa. I need to stay in B.C as I am already invested in building up my extracurriculars here. So far the options I've found are: -SFU post bacc diploma (criminology looked interesting, gerontology is relevant to me because I have experience with seniors) -UBC masters - I hav
  20. I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
  21. Well well well, May 10th has officially been declared as this year’s UBC Med D-Day! I thought to start our discussion thread so the nerves and doubts and excitement can officially be discussed as we inch closer to the beginning of the end (for the cycle!) and possibly the beginning of a new beginning. Here’s our official live countdown: https://www.arewethere.yt/OFFICIAL-D-DAY-2019/100157.htm
  22. Hey, I am looking for a place to stay from September 22nd - October 5th. I will be doing a 2-weeks elective at the VGH. Does anyone know any FB groups/resources that would be helpful? Thanks!
  23. I've been accepted to both schools. (I'm from BC) This is not a question about weather, city, traffic. I'd like to hear from students who have been to either school. UBC students, I'm not too thrilled to do PBL. UofT students, the class is very large. Do you get stressed easily as a result of waiting in lines? ANY info about the actual school environment and curriculum is highly appreciated.
  24. Hello I am wondering if anyone has written the UBC English Exemption Test before. Any information or details would be greatly appreciated!! thanks!
  25. Hey guys, I really need some thoughts here. I am a second year UBC premed currently work 5-10 hours at Sportchek on the weekend as a sales person. Will this be a ok EC? The job really brushed up my customer service skills and multi-tasking ( prioritizing customers when the store gets busy, etc) and will this experience look good on the application? Thank you in advance!
