  1. Glad to see I'm not the only one that's been watching the website like a hawk since like June 15th.
  2. Hey, I was looking this up and couldn't find anything regarding the actual act of practicing in the US rather than immigration issues. I'm Canadian but I have permanent residency in the US (married to US citizen) so immigration is irrelevant to my question. I was playing with the idea of applying to Canadian optometry school this year, but for me it's important to have a job that is somewhat easily transferred from Canada to the US and back. Once immigration is figured out, what are the barriers for a Canadian trained OD to practice in the US, and vice versa? Is it just an exam, or are there more hoops to jump through? Thanks
  3. WHAT!!?! Omg. This changes everything. Also, I don't believe they used to count summer courses toward the full-time requirement, but now they do. Well that's an interesting turn of events!
  4. That's just silly. They could at least go about it on a case by case basis and just issue a strong recommendation to minimize online coursework for competitiveness's sake... Or straight up say that they won't take fully online degree recipients. The way it is now, in my opinion, it eliminates a lot of prospective students who may have been rural or otherwise disadvantaged (i.e. having to work during studies), something we always talk about in medicine but often do little to change, as evidenced by such selection practices. I see it as just one more way to eliminate a large amount of applicants since they don't require MCAT and receive huge app volumes. Not fair, but what is, in this game...
  5. Ah ok, j'ai vu 329e à Saguenay, j'ai pensé que peut-être t'avais gardé ça comme deuxième choix... I'm here rooting for y'all =D Je me rapelle avoir vu tes posts dans les années précédentes, FÉLICITATIONS!!! Tu y es arrivé!
  6. Ça veut tu dire que... @keipop a reçu une offre au Saguenay?
  7. Ils comptent un diplôme collégial de deux ans de l'extérieur comme étant équivalent à un DEC, donc quelqu'un à l'extérieur du Québec pourrait quand même planifier pour ça (Pour moi ça été assez facile, j'ai pu utiliser mes crédits universitaires comptant pour mon bacc pour obtenir un diplôme "Associate of Arts" ce qui compte comme un DEC). Il faut juste bien savoir d'avance ou on s'enligne par contre.
  8. Ok gotcha. La confusion c'est juste que 60 crédits dans un même programme pour un universitaire au Québec au moment du dépot de la demande c'est effectivement un bacc en voie d'être complété, mais pour les autres qui appliquent avec un bacc hors-Québec de 120 crédits/4 ans, ça veut quand même dire qu'on peut appliquer à la fin de la deuxième année. Merci pour la clarification
  9. Eh ben! Quand j'ai lu ça je suis allée voir sur le site web mais en effet y'avait rien à cet effet. Donc ils vont un pas plus loin que uLaval et joignent UdeM en exigeant un bacc complété avant l'admission. C'est too bad, j'imagine que pour eux c'est une façon de limiter le nombre d'applicants overall, et à la fois diminuer la frustration des autres programmes qui voient leurs étudiants lâcher leurs programme tremplin prématurément.
  10. Wow attends. Plus d'étudiants en cours de bacc l'an prochain à Sherbrooke?
  11. ULaval continue d'admettre des universitaires en cours de bacc.... UdeM ne prends plus d'universitaires en cours de bacc depuis cette année.
  12. I will e-mail Dal if I can't find the answer here, but in case someone has already gone through the process, can one request an exemption of full course load if the undergraduate degree isn't completed at the time of applying? That's not clear to me based on the website wording. I'm entering 4th year of undergrad, with 4.0 and 121 credits completed (Including summers & CLEP transfer credits), but I'm short 2 credits in my second year to fulfill the 30CH because I took 12 credits during that spring semester. Edit: I just saw in the forum that they're not counting winter 2020 credits, which would probably screw me even if my request for exemption was approved. That was my biggest semester at 19CH - Ah.
