It is certainly possible to get in to medical school with a 3.8, yes. Queen's only uses GPA as a cutoff and ascribes no additional value past a certain point; same with Western. But let's look at the profile of all the schools to have a more candid picture.

    Western - requires an 11 in VR and a 12 in BS these days if you aren't SWOMEN. For most people, that is a tall order.

    Queen's - nobody really knows what they look for in their evaluation of the ABS. This is probably one of the most unpredictable schools. Even if you do manage an interview, the odds of being accepted post-interview are the lowest in the country here - about 20%. 

    NOSM - has an average GPA in the 3.8 vicinity, but it doesn't matter if you don't have ties to Northern Ontario/rural life.

    McMaster - a big struggle here is verbal, but GPA is only 32% of their pre-interview formula and so the average GPA is around 3.83. The verbal component can give people difficulties for this school though - and who knows with CASPer. 

    Toronto - quite high GPA requirements, but low MCAT requirements. 

    Ottawa - quite high GPA requirements, but no MCAT. Considered more of an "EC-heavy" school

    So really, there is no school which is a given, and a high GPA can only improve your odds. Don't settle for a 3.8 if you can reasonably manage higher. 

    Most people will already have NOSM out of the picture, and Western too not given an unreasonable number of MCAt rewrites (you don't want to put yourself through that test too many times). And you don't want Toronto and Ottawa out too.
