    How easy is it to get in?

    Advertisements
    Our members don't see this ad
    Hey guys, I haven't applied yet.. but I was wondering how easy it is to get admission to the 6 yr english med program.

    One forumer said 30 students get in? That's it? 30? Don't med schools usually take upwards of 200 or 250 students?

    Is there an entrance exam?

    How much does it cost to apply?

    I had about an 84% average in high school and a lot of extra curriculars, is that enough?

    -Thanks

    First off,
    don't do this out of HS. You'll miss out on more than you know just to save a couple years. Undergrad is designed to widen your gaze academically as well as socially. Also, you must remember that if you do well in collage, you can apply to better schools- don't sell yourself short NOW just to get to work longer. Giving it a shot will cost you two years. NOT giving it a shot might cost you the residency (and thus specialty) you desire... because lets face it, you have a far better chance getting your choice residency after a US school than after this one.
    84% is still a B average, which while not stellar, isn't bad. You can get into a descent school with it, and try improving there.
    As for size... it varies by year. ~30 is the size they gave you for the 6yr program, but you also have the 4yr (40 my yr) the BIS, and that's only for american. You then have the asian programs, a european one and of course, a sizable contingent of Polish students ^_~ If I remember right, one of my profs said she had 180 groups (~10 students, though i think the polish groups are closer to 30), and she might have been talking only of foreign students.
    As far as med schools go, this place isn't small at all... which translates to schedules some of us would rather avoid.
    If you apply, you'll almost certainly get in; HMI wants your $.
    There's no entrance exam per say, but you do have an interview (although i'm speaking from the 4yr perspective... you might), and as for fees, look through my old posts and you'll find a couple where I copied my financial shcmatic for this year.

    Thanks for all the info man.

    I'm actually from Canada where 84% is an A- so my GPA is about 3.5 i think.

    Can you tell me a little more about the application process? How much that costs? And also do you have a valid email address of someone from the faculty I can talk to about application questions? I sent an email out but got no response.

    I need to write an essay as well for this application?

    with that kind of GPA, WHY are you applying? Seriously, I would think twice (more like 5x) before going right into med. Not because i'm questioning your conviction or anything, but you're really shooting yourself in the foot if you do this now.
    Get into a good uni, first and foremost, then try your best. this school will still be here in a few years, and honestly, I think you'll find far better opportunities. EU med schools are still foreign, and most ppl go here when they can't get in to US ones... so obviously the students graduating aren't looked at in the same light as ones graduating stateside. It's probably quite similar in canada. Also, as a sidenote i learned from a canadian friend in the 4yr; this is the last year they're offering the rotations in canada. They *might* return but as of now only stateside and PL ones are being offered.
    The app process is like i said, it's the basic school app. Yes there's an essay, but its simple. There's also the phone interview i mentioned.
    First step is calling HMI and they'll send you an info packet with all the info you'll need to apply. I think they might even have an app pdf on their website.
    As for the cost breakdown, reread my first post. I told you how to find a full breakdown of the payments, at least for the 4yr program. I'm not going to sift through my old posts just to save you a few min.
    As for the staff, i don't know what you'd want to ask, so here's a course listing form the school website. Not all the course pages are filled but i know for a fact the Anatomy (3rd yr) has the faculty listed. You're welcome to try, but I don't know if they'll respond...
    In case you want to get in touch with HMI itself, the only real way i've had success is to call them at the number listed on their website.

    Rozmawiajac z polonia kanadyjska

    uslyszalem opinie, ze do kanadyjskich szkol medycznych Polakow (czytaj: Kanadyjczykow, ktorych rodzice emigrowali z Polski), nie przyjmuja.
    Zalozmy, ze jest w tym 50% prawdy, i ze nie ma tam jawnych uprzedzen narodowosciowych w stosunku do Polakow, to i tak Paul szanse byc przyjetym do kanadyjskiej szkoly medycznej ma znikome.

    Musial bys byc idiota totalnym by teraz wmuwic sobie ze poprostu nie wezma cie i wienc poco prubowac. Ale to tylko moja opinia.
    Conajmiej pujc do UG a POTEM dostan sie tu na 4 letni program. Tutaj dozo egzaminow zdaje tym ze w UG dobrze sie tego nauczylam. Tu profesorzy muwia tak sobie po angielsku w stosunku do ameryki, a klasy niekture sa prowadzone beznadziejnie. Plus, mowiac szczerze, poziom w pewnych miejscach jest niski jak nic. wszystkie testy (prawie) sa wybierane odpowiedzi (a, b, c, czy d) i niestety wystarczajaco jest ludzi co tak lubia by poziom podniesc. Nasz koncowy ekzamin z fizyki medycznej zdalam bez kalkulatora, i nie dlatego ze jestem dobra z matmy.
    PS- sorki za kleksy... z pismem po polsku to ide na ucho. >_<
    Oh, and hereafter, since this forum is in english, for ppl who (like you) obviously speak english... lets leave it in english ^_~

    realPolak, Elssha nie pochodzi z Polski dlatego nie pisze super poprawną polszczyzną. Ale spokojnie można zrozumieć ;o)

    polscy profesorowie OK

    a co do poziomu: to przyczyna jest taka, że każden jeden chce mieć teraz wyższe wykształcenie. Jest coraz więcej studentów, którzy nie powinni nawet skończyć szkoły średniej i w efekcie uczelnie dążąc do zysków celowo obniżają poziom. W przeciwnym wypadku musieli by wywalić przynajmniej połowę studentów 1 roku.

    I was born there (erm... here) actually, just left when I was a kid... and my laptop doesn't do polish letters (and i'm too lazy to make it, since i nearly never use them) ^_^
    Totally agree with what you, otherwise.

    Poziom Polskiego ma jaki ma, zato nie reklamuje sie jako szkola po ktorej skonczeniu dostaniesz doktorat nie wspominajac juz o $$$ ktore trzeba za nia zaplacic, UML zato tak wlasnie sie reklamuje .... generalnie wiec jej zdanie nie ma nic wspolnego z bledami ortograficznymi, a krytykowac moze sobie ile chce.
