  1. Ya I'm thinking NOSM'S bag won't be quite as nice as the Ottawa U bags. Their colours are yellow and blue I also don't want to be walking around with a bag that has a Laurentian Logo on it. I did my undergraduate degree there and they disappointed me. I guess this is a minor thing anyways the important thing is finally getting in!
  2. Thanks I hope we can buy them but at least if the NOSM ones look good I'll feel better. Do you have a pick of the Ottawa U bags?
  3. Hi there, I am starting at the Northern Ontario School of Med this fall and I heard that were aren't receiving the MD financial bags anymore starting this year due to the conflict of interest policy of the university. I know Ottawa U did the same thing a few years ago but I was wondering if anyone from Ottawa U since that policy was enforced was able to obtain an MD financial bag by other means or by purchasing one? Thanks!

  5. Guess you were right. It's full now, just got the email. ????
  6. Does anyone else feel super anxious because you know you probably won't get in given there are only 3(maybe) spots left but still hoping and checking this forum / your email every hour? Or have you moved on?
  7. I'm on the wait list and I also got this email. I would probably contact them to make sure you're on their list still.
  8. Thanks for the info. Did any of those people mention being off of the wailist?
  9. Hey I've been lurking this page since last Tuesday. Its my first year being waitlisted. I'm excited but also disappointed because we don't have our numbers this year. It feels like some cruel joke they played on us. I live in Sudbury and guess I will be looking for employment now since I have no idea what will happen.
  10. Hi, I am considering applying to Ottawa U nutrition science degree which is a french degree that includes your internship withing the 4 years of study. I already have a BSc in Biomed and am working on my MSc. in Laboratory Medicine,therefore I think I would be able to finish in 3 years. I think this degree is a good option because I can be employed right out of school ( I wish I had known about this program sooner!) Has anyone heard of this program and know anyone who went through it? How tough is it? I still want to apply to medical school so I want to get good grades if I am doing a second degree. Thanks
  11. I think that having a job at all shows that you are a hard worker and you work throughout the year not only the school year. That being said a healthcare career would only be helpful if it allows you to see things that you wouldn't otherwise be able to see. If you are filling papers for a hospital it's not really a "healthcare" job. Very few summer jobs would actually let you do anything involving patient care. Maybe look into student research positions. I think as long as you are making use of your time it will be a positive and beneficial experience.
  12. I'm just wondering about what careers are out there for someone with an MSc in Laboratory medicine. It seems like even lab tech positions require you to do a college program to be a registered Medical Lab tech. Is a masters equivalent to this program or would I need extra education no matter what? Thanks any advice would be great.

Also if I was looking into going into nutrition (dietician) would I need to start from undergrad again even is my BSc is in Biomed? Thanks any advice would be great.
  14. If your second degree is 3.93 isn't that good enough? I know some schools such as NOSM only look at your best degree. Ottawa looks at your 3 latest years and weighs them. Queens and Western look at your two best years plus MCAT. I'm not sure about Toronto (if they consider second degrees) and Mac considers everything. I'm not sure about OOP schools though. Are you from Canada or the US?
