Hey all, new here (as if you couldn't tell by my one post). Anyway, a few questions... 1) How many years of undergrad do American Medical Schools wish for undergrads to have? 2) Everyone is talking about GPAs of around 3.3 . I just came back from a meeting at UToronto (yes, I'm Canadian) where they said the GPA is 3.7 to be competitive. IS this true? 3) I'm in my 2nd year of university (Sophmore, I suppose?) I read somewhere that I should take my MCAT at the end of my junior year--in April. The only problem is, this conflicts with school exams (it's a year away, but still). Has anyone done this? When IS the best time to take an MCAT? 4) Is anyone else form UofT and witnessed the unbearable competition? WE had a webboard for Biochem. People impersonated the TAs and gave out wrong answers so that people would fail. Nice, eh?
