3.5 means an even mix of B+´s and A-´s. It all depends on the program. Easier to get As in sciences if you study hard and easier to get Bs in arts if you don´t study at all. Much easier to get a 3.5 average at York than UofT. Considering that you need higher grades to get into UofT than York, and UofT students graduate with lower CGPAs than Yorkies, it says something about those two schools´ reps.

And before Yorkies start flaming, yes, Schulich is the exception.

so for someone who wants to get into med school, york would be a better option, since med schools need at least a 3.5 gpa

Wrong.

It doesn´t matter where you go, if you´re med school material, you will still get stellar grades no matter where you go. Sure there might be some slight fluctuations, but that little "fluctuation" won´t jeopardize your chances of going into med school.

Seriously, if you have to go to a supposingly "suckier" school to get better grades, what makes you think you´ll pass the certification exams, or better yet, how do you know you can even get OUT of med school, hmm?

Med schools don´t care so much about the school´s name because the MCAT is the great equalizer. I know a girl who got into McMaster´s med school with a distance biology degree from Athabasca.

To the above poster,

That is a bit strange considering Mac doesn´t even require the MCAT!?!? Although, I think they are starting to require the writing portion next year.

Dunno about McMaster requiring the MCAT but my friend wrote it anyways. McMaster was her first choice and she got in - EOF.
