Hey guys,

This question is mainly for Canadians in DO schools right now. Just wondering if you had to go through the whole "foreign transcript" conversion? I read on AACOMA's that unless the Canadian school has a 4.0 conversion on your transcript (which mine doesnt, it just gives % and grade) than you have to mail your transcripts to some US educational institutions that evaluate and convert or some BS. It seems to me like that is a lot of work considering that could take weeks

Just wondering if you guys actually did this or just sent your transcripts directly to AACOMA?

Thanks

I applied two years ago, and I just sent in my trancript to AACOMAS. They didn't have a problem with it, but i'm from UofT and we do have both a 4.0 gpa and a % system. You could try e-mailing the AACOMAS ppl, they're fairly fast at replying. GL
