I have a few questions with regards to UofT med school marking schemes.?Does UofT med school consider a 3-4 course load as a full course load or?does it have to be 5 course load per term?
I am aware that UofT Med school? drops 4 lowest full-course equivalent?grades for applicants with 4 full-time years.?My first year with regards to gpa is a complete disaster, and I am highly?concerned with my future application for Med school acceptance at UofT for?2017.
5.0 credits/term is the going rate for ‘full course load.’
if you did not take a full course load, then yeah, the ‘weighting formula’ which allows you to drop the lowest 4.0 FCEs from the admissions GPA will not apply, so in that case, those first year courses would still be factored into your GPA.
i would recommend talking to your registrar’s office about how severely that may affect you. since i don’t know your GPA, i can’t really say how much cause for concern you have (for the record, a 3.8 is considered ‘competitive’). you can also call?416-978-7928, which is the faculty of medicine’s ‘admissions inquiries’ number, ’cause they’ll definitely know what they’re talking about. they’ll?certainly know more than i do.
