Hi all,

I am currently completing a grad degree and wanted to take orgo (this January) to meet the Ottawa prerequisite. However, there are a few details I'm not sure about. If I applied next cycle...

  • How would schools view this course? Although I'm taking this course outside of my completed undergraduate degree, would it affect my fulltime/part-time status to be eligible for wGPA calculations?
  • Do you know if any schools would factor this course into GPA calculations at all?

Any advice you could offer regarding this would be really appreciated. Thank you!

If you do orgo in Cegep, it won't be part of your GPA, but you still need to get a 70% grade. Otherwise, if you do it in university, some med schools will count it for your GPA (e.g. McMaster) because they count all undergrad courses for the cGPA, some won't (e.g. uOttawa) because you'll take it as an open student on a part-time basis and they don't consider part-time studies for the wGPA calculation or they just take your 2 best full-time years.

 

Hope this helps!
