  1. Past hour
  2. Isn't that the medical school scale though? Shouldn't there be a scale for dental schools or do they follow the same one?
  3. @DefinitelyPT @AriaFuturePT I'm in the same dilemma as well! I've started and asked this in a new thread

    Importance of DAT for UofT?

    I think you'll honestly be fine, no need to rewrite.
  5. Hi everyone, I've noticed a few others that seems to be in a similar dilemma and asking for any helpful insight in choosing between the 2 programs so I thought it might be easier to make it its own new thread! I'm also really torn as well, I've lived in both cities and loved each for different reasons so any insights people may have on their own experiences (good and bad) on either program would be much appreciated. I know one thing that impressed me about UBC was that they interviewed using the MMI format and continue to test you throughout the program using this format as it is how you are tested in the OSCE, does anyone know if U of T incorporates this into preparing you for the PCE? Any info helps! Other questions would also include student-life factors as well - how are the facilities, how are the campus gyms, graduate housing etc Thanks in advance and congrats to everyone on having made it through the admissions cycle
  6. See my PM and share it with the other person who replied.
  7. I second this! Also on the McMaster wait list and, although knowing that all I can do is patiently wait and see, I am definitely curious about the average amount of movement!

  12. Bonjour tout le monde! Je suis étudiante à un Cégep anglophone et j'ai été acceptée en année préparatoire pour Médecine à l'UdeM ( je suis sur la liste d'attente à McGill mais plutôt loin donc j'ai un peu abandonné hahaha). Je me demandais si quelqu'un présentement ds le programme de Udem-Med pouvait nous raconter son expérience? Aussi, je suis plus à l'aise en anglais qu'en français et je me demandais si j'avais des chances de rentrer dans une résidence en anglais au Québec? Merci beaucoup!

    UAlberta vs. U of T

    Hey, I am in the same situation this year (was accepted to U of A, Toronto, McMaster, and Ottawa). I am from Calgary and I ended up choosing U of A. The biggest influence for me, was that everyone I talked to in the medical profession told me to choose the city that I would most likely want to do residency and end up living in. They said you build a lot of connections and references that will help you in the future during your clerkship rotations and electives. For me, that meant staying in Alberta as I want to end up in Alberta since all my family is here. For you, it sounds like that might be Toronto? Either way, I would go with where you see yourself living after med school! Hope that is helpful.

    Exactement pour ceux et celles qui pensent a utiliser pharmacie comme tremplin a UdeM détrompé vous ce n’est pas le meilleur tremplin du tout étant donné que les notes sont courbées !! mieux vaut laisser la place a une personne qui veut réellement devenir pharmacien

    Je pense que tu fais bien. On m’a dit que pharmacie n’est pas un bon tremplin pcq tes notes sont selon la moyenne donc ça donne des GPA peu compétitives! Bonne chance pour médecine et DMD !!!

    C'était la date limite aujourd'hui pour refuser/accepter l'offre de pharmacie, et j'ai décidé après une longue réflexion que je préfère terminer mon bac pour réessayer dans mes choix supérieurs (dmd , med)

  24. Hi everyone. Thank you for this forum! It really helped me with my nerves when applying this year. The community is so supportive and it makes me happy to know such caring people are looking to go into healthcare! Applied (OT): Western, Queen's, MacAccepted: Queen'sWaitlisted: MacRejected: WesternGPA:c-gpa and s-gpa; cGPA 3.43, sGPA 3.93 Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: - References were strong for both work (as a behaviour interventionist) and academics - Paid work experience: behaviour intervention (2 years), occupational therapist assistant working in community mental health (1 year), rehabilitation assistant working as a casual in acute, high intensity rehab, and residential for both PT and OT (1 year student; 6 months employee) - Volunteer experience: pet therapy at the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addictions (2 years), distress call volunteer at the Vancouver Crisis Centre (1 1/2 years) - Essays: I spent a lot of time on my essays and got two trusted friends to proof read them for me. I talked with several OTs about relevant issues, and spoke about my experience working first hand with entrenched youth and the opioid crisis. - CASPER: I studied for the CASPER but I think it went badly because I can only type like 45wpm :S - Interview: I prepared extensively for the interview because I know from past experience that my nerves get so intense it makes it hard to think. I came out feeling like I did the best I could do, but there was definitely room for improvement (as there always is!)
