Quick question. My 1st two year’s grades were not good and not at all competitive for Canadian Med schools. I was wondering if having amazing grades in your final years gives you a chance or if you are doomed with bad 1st and 2nd year grades. How much do they value improvement? Do they always consider all 4 years?
As I tell any student who asks me general questions about a general variety of schools that I know nothing about, I will grace you with the oh so simple answers of “It depends” and “Pft, how the heck should I know?”
Generally speaking however, yes, most med schools take all four years into account so if your first and second years suck, I recommend totally rocking the next two years.
I can’t speak for other schools, but I’d suppose that your improvement will play some part in their judgement?
In the long run though, look into the specific schools and see what their standards are.
