  1. Has anyone had any experience with KINE 4453 (Vascular Function in Health and Disease) with Haas or KINE 4500 (Neural Control of Movement) with Sergio? Trying to find another upper year KINE science elective for first sem.
  2. Has anyone had any experience with CHEM 113 – General Chemistry I at Queen's? I haven't been able to find much information on it anywhere.

    Online physiology

    Thanks a lot! That was very helpful.

    Online physiology

    I'm thinking of taking physiology online, either from Guelph (BIOM 2000), or Waterloo (BIOL 273). Could anyone offer any insight on these?
  5. I thought the IP Francophone cutoff was 3.6... unless this recently changed?
  6. Does anyone have any experience with KINE 4060 (Independent Study)? I'm curious about the workload/time commitment, and if it was mostly going through literature or conducting actual research.
  7. Could anyone offer any insight on how KINE 3020 is evaluated, i.e. should I focus on readings, course kit or lectures?
  8. Hey, would anyone know how important CHEM 1001 tutorials are, besides for the quizzes? I have a half hour overlap between KINE 4340 ending at 1 PM and a CHEM 1001 tutorial starting at 12:30 PM this summer.
  9. (Wasn't sure where else to post this, so I suppose this is the most appropriate thread.) I was wondering if anyone's had any experience as a certified prosthesist, especially through George Brown's post-grad program? I'm considering it as a backup, and was wondering what the work was like, as well as how the complementary Msc. in Rehabilitation Science through Mcmaster works out? Also curious about how preparation for the entrance exam is done, as the content listed on the site seems a bit vague, and there don't seem to be any prep guides out there.

    Abs - Plagiarism?

    Nope, otherwise at least 75% of applicants would be in trouble for hospital volunteering Just avoid copying word for word whenever possible for the description.
  11. Not sure (do you mind keeping us posted?), but I would think that while you're still eligible to apply, you won't be as competitive as other applicants with better grades in those courses. You'll most likely be asked about them if you get invited for an interview.
  12. Adcom doesn't care about where you went for your courses/degree, as long as the course meets the prerequisite requirements.
  13. All universities in the GTA offer non-degree options for taking courses.

    Ottawa Prerequisite Courses

    Depends on how they decide to treat their provional MCAT requirement, as without both the MCAT and prerequisites, there wouldn't be much for them to go on academically pre-interview besides GPA (especially it they opt to treat French applicants differently). Even if they decide to keep it, there's still a good chance of still keeping the prerequisites too.
  15. I'll be starting my second UG in kinesiology at York this fall, and one of my priorities (besides GPA) is securing some references from some faculty members. This isn't strictly for med, but also because the master's program I'm considering as an alternative specifically requires the references to be from faculty members. I have one potential prof I could ask from my original degree, from having produced some biomedical artwork and animations for some of the courses he teaches, but I need at least two more. While I'm aware of the traditional pathways to obtaining references (research assistant, being a standout student), I feel that this will be trickier as a 2nd degree student as I technically don't have a York GPA yet to meet the requirements for working in labs (first UG cGPA won't help me), and some of the classes I'm in seem rather large. tl;dr : what are some activities/professors/courses (especially at York), that I could consider if I need faculty references during a condensed degree? I'd ideally like to have it figured out by next fall, in case I opt to apply for my alternative program instead.
