Thanks Dassy!

 

I also can't find fees information on the website, do you (or anyone else) happen to have a fees breakdown?

Np :)

Check out here for fees/cost: http://www.queensu.c...UG_Domestic.pdf

Check out here for FAQs/How to make payments: http://www.queensu.c...ls/tuition-fees

You should be getting an email/package from Queens that also details this information later on in the summer.

Do you have any recommendations for a new laptop? I'm debating between a Macbook Air and a Macbook Pro. Is there any reason to pick one over the other? What do most students have?

Honestly, right now a Macbook Air would be a terrible purchase considering the hardware it's packing. If you had to go Apple, I'd go Pro, but I would highly recommend getting the new Dell XPS 13 with infinity display if you wanted something lighter and more "ultrabook"-esque. It puts the Macbook Air to shame regarding memory, processing power, etc. Due to the nearly non-existent bezel, it's a 13inch laptop screen in the chasis of a standard 11inch laptop. Super lightweight, with amazing battery life.

I was debating between the air and pro and went for the pro. It's 1lb heavier than the air but the specs were a lot better. I haven't really strained my computer yet but it's been great so far.

I debated this a couple years ago and went with the Pro with retina display and a few upgrades. The computing power and the display are just much better, without much of a trade off for portability. There is also the new MacBook, which I can't really comment on since it wasn't around when I was in the market.

I agree, the performance and the quality of the display on the Pro far outweigh any loss in portability since the Pro is already so light. I think the new MacBook is unnecessarily expensive for its performance. I'd say the Pro is your best bet at this point - I've been loving mine.

I would go for the Air. I was in a similar situation earlier this year and after thorough consideration I picked up a macbook air and have not regretted it. The battery life of the air is unmatched by the pro and that was a huge factor for me. I use my laptop mostly for email, web browsing and microsoft office so the extended battery life and lighter weight were great. Keep in mind the air does not have a cd-rom or an ethernet port if that is something you're interested in. It's designed for productivity on the go.

Hello! I am currently a registered nurse and plan on taking a year off to work as a nurse, gain more experience and hopefully get involved in research, as well as take additional courses. I am wondering if Queen's has a certain perception (for lack of a better term) on nurses applying to medical school? 

 

Also, are there any previous nurses in your class? :)
