  1. Hello, My girlfriend is about to start an accelerated 2 year nursing program. She recently applied for a LOC from TD Bank but was turned down, due to a couple of old resolved credit issues. Are the specific banks that are typically more lenient / forgiving when it comes to professional loans for nursing students? I know that back in the day when I was starting med school, National Bank was always willing to do the most for med students, I guess because they aren't as big as the other guys... is that the case for nursing re National Bank? Or otherwise, any insight into Scotia or RBC? Thanks, Matt
  2. does anyone have a Toronto Notes handbook, new or old (2012, 2011, 2010, or even 2009 i guess) that they would be interested in selling? i lost mine... let me know

  5. i wouldn't have to pay back this money from osap
  6. I am doing a bit of research in the summer... was happy to do it for no pay, because i wanted some freedom and didn't want to lock myself into a scholarship... initially i was working for no money... but my supervisor recently said that he's going to give me a couple of thousand anyways in terms of OSAP, and your aid being based partially on income... is it a 1:1 ratio? According to the aid estimator, it seems to be, as i'm quoted around 21k without pay and around 19k with the $2000 summer pay... but i'm not sure how accurate the aid estimator is if this is the case, and it is 1:1 deduction, i figure i might as well just say no thanks to the $2000, since i will be getting $2000 extra from osap anyways (kind of a dumb system - benefits vacationers more than summer workers)
  7. 95% of people probably couldn't even tell you where their doctor graduated med school or residency...
  8. oh that's different then... i thought oral surgeons were dentists who further specialized
  9. i have to completely disagree with future_doc... i don't think it would help with medical school applications firstly, any shadowing experience won't have too much bearing on your med school applications.. it's main utility (application-wise), is that it shows you are demonstrating interest, but that's more or less it... in terms of tangible personal qualities or skills gained/fortified that you can speak about, other experiences in which you actually do something are much more relevant... and that is really what med schools are looking at in the application process - personal characteristics and experiences.... from what i've seen, med schools give very little weight to shadowing... as a pre-med, shadowing can be good to give you an idea of what a doctor does and give you a glimpse of what to expect... but that is more for yourself, in deciding if you want to go into medicine - as opposed to carrying any real weight on an application beyond that, he/she is a dentist, not a physician, so it's not even really demonstrating an interest in medicine that said, if you are trying to decide between dental school and med school, or if you want to go into dental school (not that i know much about the application), then it would be useful
  10. the newest edition of this book: http://www.amazon.ca/Neurobiology-Disease-Sid-Gilman/dp/0120885921/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341435046&sr=8-1 vs. a journal with an impact factor around 5
  11. What's more useful/respectable (in terms of CaRMS application, i guess): first author of a review paper in a decent journal vs. first/co-author of a respectable textbook chapter?
  12. decided to go with a 2010 Toyota Yaris hatchback from the toyota dealership... only 18000 km... no accidents... not many features... $12K
