  1. Hello! I just got accepted into URegina's premedical studies. I'm also applying to USask for physiology and pharmacology but haven't heard back from them. Between these two programs, which one would be the better option? Would URegina's program be more similar to a health science degree whereas USask would be more similar to a bio degree? Thanks!
  2. I honestly don't know where I stand. On one hand, it must be horrible living in a province that doesn't have enough doctors. On the other hand, why am I punished in Ontario? If the government REALLY wanted more doctors they'd open more seats and make it less of a rat race. Just seems to me that they don't want to pay the taxes... I also don't understand these people saying "if you really wanted to be a doctor then you wouldn't mind applying for 5 years" and then turn around and get salty about people getting in on their first shot. I know med school and residency are going to be hell, but I'd much rather get there sooner than later. For all of you questioning my motives, I am type 1 Diabetic and struggle with mental health issues. My family lives in one of the top 5 poorest nations in the world. My only goal in life is to help kids who've struggled like me and like my family back home. I want to become a doctor as fast as I can so I can help those kids again. I'm actually considering moving to my country after getting my MD. Ok enough of the sob story I'm just done with people being salty and rude when they know nothing about me.
  3. Don't take my word for it but yes it is true. However for me it's unviable because there aren't any uni's up there and I do not want to do an online degree.
  4. No I really can't. And I'm really sorry that you have had to do that. However I don't see why people are shitting on me for not wanting to do that. I want to he a doctor and that's that; 9 years from now I want to have my MD and be done with it. I don't want my masters. I don't want my PhD. I don't want to do another UG. I just want my damn MD. That's it. I agree it's stupidly unfair; why should I have to move half way across the fucking country to have a decent shot at becoming a doctor? That's ridiculous. Unfortunately, the system is what it is. It's not my fault that it's made this way and I'm sick and tired of people calling me "lazy" or that I have "questionable motives" just because I'm not going to kill myself to become a doctor. Look guys, I know a lot of you are hurting because you've always wanted to have that stethoscope but stop projecting that frustration onto other people. As my driving school always said " ALWAYS take the path of least resistance." I don't see any shame in doing that.
  5. Ikr... Like good god I feel like some people are projecting their own anger and furstration about not getting back into into med onto people who get into USask. I hate how people fetishize suffering.
  6. Why are you acting like you're so much better than Saskatchewan? So what if it's easier to get into? That doesn't make it worse, if anything people going to Saskatchewan are smarter than those who don't.
  7. And yet the acceptance rates in Ontario are the lowest in Canada... Would you recommend trying out Sask? At least I have a decent shot of getting into USask vs UC and UoA from what I've read in this thread.
  8. What year are you applying to? I'm looking to do USask's Phys/Pharm program in fall 2020 as it seems like the best program in the province imo.
  9. Hello. I'm a grade 12 student in Ontario and to maximize my chances at getting into med school I want to study in either Alberta or Saskatchewan. From the statistics I've seen, Saskatchewan has a higher acceptance rate but Alberta has two med schools. Which province is better to get IP status?
  10. I've been thinking that but I've seen that Saskatchewan has a much higher acceptance rate of over 60% for IP applicants. However I'm not too sure.
  11. Honestly me too... Currently USask is my top choice because it'll allow me to get IP status but I don't want to go all the way out to Saskatoon for no reason...
  12. I looked into that (would MUCH rather live in St John's) but for Dal they require you to be an "independent student" (i.e be financially independent and not a university student) for 3 years in any Maritime province. So that just leaves MUN and the acceptance rate for USask is much higher.
  13. What uni's are in the territories? I'm a high school student and looking to go for a trad route atm. I looked at Yukon College (it's a university) but they don't have any science degrees so I wouldn't be able to do any prereqs lmao.
  14. I'm leaning towards Saskatchewan but I've heard Alberta is also a good bet. What's the best province to get IP status? I'm an Ontarian student.
  15. I'm an Ontario high school student and I've done a lot of research on med school admissions in Canada. I noticed that USask has BY FAR the highest acceptance rate for IP students and that their criteria for IP status is ridiculously easy to get. My top choices before were McGill, UOttawa, Western, and UBC but now that I've seen this I think it's down to Western and USask. I feel like I'm missing something here because it really can't be that easy to get IP status in Saskatchewan.
