ryerson biomed a hard program?

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Hi, I am planning on going to university next year with hopes to get into medical school 4 years later. I want to get into a program which is relatively easy so I can have a high GPA, yet also prepare me for the MCAT and medical school. I was looking into ryersons biomedical program but I was wondering if it would be hard to achieve a high GPA.

Why does it matter which school you go to for that program? Do you really think the laws of bio would differ depending on the university? Use the grey matter inside your thick skull.

Yea, good luck getting into medical school with that mentality. A lot of people have come before you and tried that. Med schools are not fools and if you cant get in from a science program at RYERSON, then you cant do it anywhere. They look at far more than your grades alone. I have friends with masters degrees who applied 3 times and didnt get in. One of my friends with a PhD finally got in after 5 tries. They all had relatively high GPAs. Good luck, OP.

A friend of mine in the year above me in med school (he's in second year) went to this program and got into med in 4th year undergrad. He said that he found the program quite a joke, and that he didn't really understand how his peers struggled in the courses when they were much easier than similar courses up the street at UofT. But I mean, he also only went to this program because he was offered a full scholarship and then some, else he would've gone for Mac Health Sci or Western Med Sci since he had acceptances there too.
