    Alberta Loan Grants? So Confused..

    Hey Ghoststalker! Thanks for the advice! I think I was slightly ambiguous with my wording so let me make sure I am saying this right lol. For Ontario for example it is still a loan, but they have something called the Ontario Student Opportunity Grant (OSOG) where they pay down the Ontario part of the loan to $7,200. So for example if yo get $15,000 in funding , $3,000 as a grant and $12,000 as a loan, that $12,000 as a result of the OSOG grant, the loan portion becomes $7,200 as opposed to $12,000. Does that make more sense? They still have grant portions, but they also have grants that are designed to lower your loan portion. What I am curious to know is if Alberta has something like that as well, but there was no note on the application (like there is on the Ontario one) I figured an example would be more useful! Thanks!
  9. Hi Guys, As a former Ontarian, I was looking over the details of my Alberta Student Loan and I was wondering how paying it back worked (I've lived in AB for a bit but never got a loan here). In Ontario, anything above $7,300 from the Loan was covered by the OSOG grant, reducing the annual loan payment to $7,300 (above that was forgiven). Though Alberta offers more money, do they have a grant option which reduces your total repayment amount or do you have to pay the entire amount? Just so I can start managing my money appropriately. Thanks everyone!

  11. Can I pretend that 24+ classifies as mid-twenties? In terms of research I do have a MSc so I think balancing research (which I enjoy) with my degree should potentially be okay. It seems Mac is very self-directed,(so I don't know Jess24 if Calgary is the same way?) so does that mean research and observerships are easy to manage? Pokemon Trainer can you clarify what you meant by 1/2 weeks off in the summer? Also do you know anything about balencing CaRMS and boards? If I only end up with a 3 year option then I obviously would take it! I am just worried about CaRMS (I haven't even started and I am stressing lol oh boy!) Thanks Everyone!
  12. Is that stigma just to Mac residents or Calgary residents too? Just trying to assess the commonality across 3 year programs. CaRMS data on the high level doesn't show a significant difference. For Jess24's question I don't think it is broken down by OOP references so I don't know if that data helps? Anyone else have info on this topic?
  13. Hey Jmatt, Great question! So the fact of the matter is its not about rush but about where I get in lol. I have the option of a 3 year and 4 year school (which I have not heard from both yet so may not even be an option) Second of all I am a non-trad, meaning I am in my mid-20s right now, so not such a spring chicken lol. Yes in the grand scheme of things a year may not matter, but it is something I consider My primary concern is more about the outcome and impact on residency then anything, so that is really what I am trying to assess. Thanks for replying!
  14. Hi All, I think this conversation has been had somewhere else but I couldn't find it so if someone could direct me to the link that would be great! Basically, I know quite a few students look at 3 year programs unfavorably. For some it is the lack of summers (which I can deal with!) but for others they feel the pressure to decide on a residency in a shorter period of time is a major setback, especially for a competitive residency. I am looking to make an informed decision regarding a 3 year vs. 4 year program and how that translates to the already competitive world of residency. If anyone has specific insight or knows where the links to the 3 year vs. 4 year topics are I would really appreciate the help! Thanks in advance!

    Verifiers Contacted?

    I don't really know if any of them were or were not, but I have known of my verifies for at least 3 years and as a courtesy they sometimes message me to check in if something comes their way (they did that for an internship I applied to this summer to let me know everything was complete on their end-I never ask they just do it!). I am basing it off of the same idea but you are absolutely right in saying that I may or may not know. I was just curious as to if all potentially successful candidates were checked or if it was just a random sampling (and hoping that in case they were not contacted, it was random lol) Hope this clarifies!
