  2. Thank you for your reply! What kind of work experience do they look for? I only did surgeon shadowing in India for 2 weeks in the summer. I can't volunteer regularly at local hospital because there aren't any positions. Do you think that's enough? Should I volunteer abroad for medicine again this summer? Thanks again!!
  3. Hello, I am wondering if I stand a chance for medical school in UK. My grades are as follow Psychology SL 6 Biology HL 7 French SL 6 Math SL 6 English HL 6 TOK/ EE 2 Chemistry HL 7 I have extracurriculars such as volunteer and surgeon shadowing and many leadership positions. I don't know about BMAT and UKCAT tests. Can anyone please comment on their difficulties in comparison to the SAT I? Thank you very much!
  4. Hey, so this summer I was planning to either participate in a research camp in Ottawa, Canada.. which count for high school credits.......... or enroll in a first year university course that counts for uni credit (prolly take bio, chem, math, or eng)... which one would be better on the resume when i apply to US university? Also, is volunteering abroad a good idea? Please share your ideas! Thank you very much i can also take university course in september to december. but i think that wouldn't help much towards uni application because early US application ends in november.

  7. I have looked at the websites but I couldn't really find a lot of information about whether or not it's a good idea for Canadians to attend an American university. And to Summer, thanks! But one more question: Do American universities accept a reasonable amount of international students for graduate level? because the international med school acceptance percentage is extremely low.
