    • I know someone who got in off the Dal PT waitlist around the end of July. But other than that I haven't heard of any other movement.
    • Not an expert in the field, but PHPM likely will not give you this experience.
    • This is a devastatingly sad story in Ab.    Thank you @ellorie for reminding everyone that psychosis does not equal violence. i came here just to say that and you said it beautifully (good luck on your exam!!).   let this be a reminder to always be aware of your surroundings. Assaults happen more often than you think and in the oddest places   I think sometimes we are safer in psychiatry because we are always assessing risk whereas it is easier to let your guard down on MTU, in a family doctor office, etc  not to mention, those spaces are not built for flight and ease of egress...and you don’t have standby peace officers...and you usually only have one exit.  Stay safe everyone!  
    • Entrada is accessible now to everyone it seems.
    • People are actively looking for ways to jump ship sooner rather than later because of these nonsense proposals.    don’t fool yourself into thinking that other provinces won’t try to make changes if they successfully get pushed through here.    sad times for this previous “have” province. 
    • I met with them for the first time as a new staff just to get some suggestions on how they perceive my debt and where to make the dents in it.    I dont think I missed much except maybe I should have bought a couple more rrsp earlier in training just to allow them time o grow.    my experience was “ok”. I disclose I have nothing to invest yet. 
    • Yeah, the dude is in. He payed his deposit. The whole situation sickens me. We all got played 
    • I am in my last year of my degree and after volunteering in a lab for a while, I have a potential opportunity to do my honours there and I’m still debating whether I should do it depending on if I am genuinely interested in it. Does anyone know if doing an honours is beneficial for the UBC application?
    • Bonjour, Je suis une étudiante en Biologie qui fait une demande d'admission à Laval pour le programme de Pharmacie. Je sais que d'habitude ill faut passer le Test De Francais International (TFI), mais jai remarquer que maintenant c'était changer au  Test de connaissance du français tout public (TCF-TP). Sur le site pour PharmD c'est écrit que "ces résultats doivent être transmis au Bureau du registraire de l'Université Laval au plus tard le 1er août". Le 1er août est deja passe et je me demandais si c'est la bonne information par ce que j'ai plusieurs amies qui mont dit qu'ont peut écrire l'examen après avoir été accepter au programme. Aussi, il n'y a pas beaucoup d'informations comment on peut registrer pour le examen. Si quelqu'un a deja appliquer ou est en traine de faire le demande d'admission j'apprécierais vraiment l'aide. Merci!!
    • Anybody know what happened with the whole thing with people getting off the waitlist in lower positions?    
    • Hi! Honestly I think your stats seem pretty great. Your experience seems similar to mine (research lab, 100+ hours working with a relevant population), & I also majored in kin. Plus your subgpa is higher than mine! I got into Queen’s OT this year from (presumably) high on the waitlist, so I would think you’d at least be a candidate there. If you feel your application could use more experience, you could seek out a shadow opportunity with an OT this fall - although I know that could be difficult with covid & all. Feel free to dm me if you have any other questions! Good luck!
    • It'll be in the 85% range, however to be exact just google "UBC Med academic evaluation crieria conversion tables" and youll see a table that lets you convert all your SFU letter grades to UBC percentages (ex. every A+ is a 95, A is 87, A- is 82, B+ 78, B 74 etc)
