    Help please

    Advertisements



    I've recently been dropped from Canadian university as most of my marks are in 50s and 60s. I've chilled out with friends a lot and now wishing I could have focused more on studies. I do have the pre-med courses done, it's just that the marks are low...in low 60s and 50s.

    Do I have to do all the pre-med courses again at Xavier with my high school grades?

    What are my chances of getting into Xavier 5 1/2 years MD program?

    Could anyone suggest me other good medical universities that I could look into please, that offer pre-med?

    At this moment, Iím really struck and I could use some advice as to which universities to look into and what options I have.

    Thanks so much...

    Some how work your way back into that or another uni in canada..and complete your degree...and work your behind off and take the mcat...then see where you stand...and ***** if you can get into any medical school in north america(MD and DO)...and if all else fails...then you can always come to the caribbean....and maybe you might even get into the big 4 then with a decent mcat and better grades in the latter part of your degree....so DO NOT think about any pre med or other studies in the caribbean and let alone Xavier at this point in time...goodluck

    ^ oh and before doing any of the above...reflect deeply and think if you have the academic ability and discipline to even consider medical school, b/c it is not a walk in the park....esp if you cannot complete a general bachelors degree, regardless of the reason.

    Thanks

    Thanks so much for the advice :-)

    I'll try getting into another uni with my high school marks and after a year or so, try transfering the courses from the earlier uni to the new one...

    I'm in Canada right now, and I know for a fact that when you re-apply to Canadian Unis after doing some sort of post-grad, you don't apply using your high school grades, they look at the post-grad grades. If you choose to not disclose your post-grad, it becomes an integrity issue and is grounds for dismissal.
    Also, when you apply for med school, you have to send in ALL your transcripts, not just from the university that you got your degree so med schools will still see those grades. Unless you have a good excuse for those grades, you're screwed.

    Oh crap...what options are available?

    My high school marks are over 90s for most courses so I thought I could start fresh on another university.

    Is premed the only option left? What are the likelyhood that unis check the past history of students?

    Can I enrol into continuing education certificate program and take the required courses for medical studies and complete the 90 credit hours?
