Etudiants Canadiens Hors De Quebec


Recommended Posts

I am in my 3rd year of Biology at the University of Ottawa and am fluent in French. I would like to apply to Quebec med schools next year and have a couple of questions:

 

Could I move to Quebec now and be considered Quebec resident by the time I apply?

 

Am I able to apply even though my high school and bachelor degrees are both done in English? 

 

Thank you!

Hey Explorer,

 

Here are the requirements to be considered a Quebec resident (for the purpose of applying and paying tuition fees): http://www.mcgill.ca/legaldocuments/quebec
I know of students who have taken advantage of #6 (1 year in QC without full-time studies), #5 (parents' main residence in QC), or #9 (marrying a QC resident).

 

As for language requirements, you're fine as is for McGill, but the Francophone med schools will require you to pass a French exam.

Pour ceux comme "explorer888" qui ne sont pas residents de Quebec, combien de places y-a-t-il aux universites Quebecoises? Est-il vraiment difficile d'obtenir l'admission meme avec de bonnes notes?

 

Je suis comme "explorer888" mais je suis etudiant dans une autre universite en Ontario. 

 

Vous pouvez me repondre en anglais (je le prefererais mais il parait que parfois ceux qui pose des questions en anglais n'obtiennent pas des reponses)

Hey Almighty,

 

Regrettably, I don't have the numbers with me. The AFMC does publish admission statistics, broken down by tuition (Quebec resident, out-of-province, international).

Thanks. Would you (or anyone else) happen to know what is considered competitive for out of province applicants?

 

The weighted average of my university grades is around 90-91% and my GPA  is about 3.93 out of 4.0 (OMSAS scale).

 

Thanks!

I would say 3.9+/4.0 would be considered competitive for OOP spots (some may even argue you need a 4.0/4.0), although I usually encourage all OOPs to apply to QC schools, especially prospective students from Ontario. Since the applicant pool is rather large for that category, I would expect everyone to have equally high grades (including yourself), and therefore the non-academic profile (extracurriculars, personal statement, etc.) and interview performance should be a lot more significant in determining the application outcome (I'm speaking more about McGill than the 3 other schools).

 

TL;DR Yes, your grades are competitive.

McGill

 

Wait... Non-academic profile? I was under the impression that for the QC schools, applicants essentially just submit their transcript. No ABS, essays, etc... With the exception of McGill, of course.

Or were the comments you made strictly referring to McGill?
