  1. I just noticed on the OMSAS guide that applicants must be completed or on the last year of their bachelor's. Does that mean that someone can't apply in the summer between second and third year? is this the case for other universities as well?
  2. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  3. I know that there is Western Medical Science which sends a lot of students to med other than health science, are there any other programs like these? I want to know this because I am in grade 12 and want to be a doctor. I want to take a bachelor's program which is science oriented while also giving me the best shot possible for med school. Most of time what I hear is that if you don't get into the two courses I mentioned your best choice will be to go to an easy university so you can still get a high GPA (rather than a life science program which are generally tough), like you would in health sci due to grade inflation, is all of this true? Finally, if it is true, what are some science based programs I can take at one of these easy universities like Guelph and York, while also having opportunities for extracurriculars and research at the university. I live in the GTA by the way.
  4. Hi friends! Congrats to everyone on their acceptances, you should all be very proud of yourselves! I attended Western for OT last year for the first semester but due to medical reasons I had to take a LOA, however I am returning in September to be a part of this years incoming class. So I'd be happy to help answer any questions anybody has about the program/ living in London, or if you just want to connect with a fellow classmate feel free to shoot me a message!
  5. I am feeling really torn between Western and U of A for OT and I am running out of time to decide. I would love to hear opinions from a number of people in order to get a more representative sample of the student experience.
  6. I am determined to attend medical school in Canada. Would love any advice regarding the few options I have Currently studying for the MCAT and going into the fourth year of my honours Science undergrad- 1st year GPA 3.21 (technically 4.5 course load, including my initial grade and my improved grade for my 1 repeated course) 2nd year GPA 3.44 3rd year GPA 3.63 I'm assuming these are my options (based on years of obsessive research on forums lmao): 1) Do a 5th year. Attain 3.8+ in year 4 & 5. Apply to Western in my 5th year. If unsuccessful, complete a master's program. Apply again to Western and Queen's (perhaps Ottawa?) Any other schools I would have a chance at? 2) Do a second undergraduate degree and open up doors to other schools. Could do this after completing my degree in four years or after doing the additional 5th year. I am studying hard for the MCAT and would say I have unique ECs. I appreciate any honest insight (optimistic/pessimistic). Thank you in advance!
  7. Hey guys! I have created a temporary group for the incoming OT class at western, there will be an official one that goes up closer to school but for now I thought it would be a good resource for everyone to connect https://www.facebook.com/groups/431202110797712/
  8. Hi everyone, I will be starting the Occupational Therapy program at Western in September and was looking to find some other individuals in the program who are also in need of roommates! Feel free to message or reply here and we can chat.
  9. Hi all, I received my offer of acceptance at Western MedSci back in December and didn’t really consider Mac ArtSci + Health Sci considering their competitive nature. Though I got rejected from Health Sci, I recently got accepted at ArtSci. I was wondering if there was anybody currently in the ArtSci program who could speak on their experience or anybody currently in medical school that have graduated from ArtSci. Would ArtSci be a good program as a pre-med? I was planning on combining it with Biochem but I am still slightly worried. MedSci is a lot more specialized (overwhelmingly so) and I’m worried about maintaining a high GPA in a program that appears to want students to fail. Can anyone speak on this? So confused about what to do! Any guidance would be greatly, GREATLY appreciated! Thank you so much !
  10. This question is for all current physio students- I have applied to quite a few physio programs this year and wanted to know how possible it is to qualify for a scholarship set aside for PT students? I have gone through a couple of websites and the number of scholarships available is pretty good when looking at the class-size. But I feel like current students would have a better idea of what it actually looks like. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks
  11. Hi Everyone, This question is mainly for physio students currently studying at Western. How are you finding the program in regards to teaching techniques and classroom environment? Do you feel like you have a wide variety of placement opportunities in a wide range of settings? I have heard that Western helps students placed outside of London by giving them $600 per placement. Is this true? Are there other opportunities for scholarships etc. I have seen quite a bit on the website but would like to hear others personal experiences as well. Also, how is the living situation in London? Is there a way to find other PT students to rent with, hopefully closer to campus? What about extra-curricular experiences? Also, I have heard that some PT programs are on a pass/fail basis, giving greater emphasis on collaboration and team-work. Would you describe Western's program to be like that? Thank you all. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
  12. My top choice is UofT Epi ut its sorta more important for me to get into school next Sept than it is to land my dream school- but then Im also worried about selling myself too short. Is Guelph MSc epi worth it? Any current grads in Epi from there or Western/Queens/UofT able to throw in a dime? Thanks!
  13. Hello everyone, Hope everyone is doing great. I was wondering if Western has a cutoff for the PAT score since in their released stats they only talk about SNS and RC average scores. Thanks a lot in advance.
  14. Guys, please take a minute to answer this poll. And yes, I know this has probably been asked many times, but there were so many different opinions that I thought I'd start a new topic for this and see how it goes.
  15. Hey friends! I was just wondering if anyone else was having issues with the "Abbreviated Autobiographical Sketch" for Western? I'm having issues with the PDF on my mac, maybe I'm just not as computer literate as i thought, but when I fill in the text boxes, save the pdf, and send it, the text boxes are no longer able to be scrolled through, so about half of my essays are unable to be seen. This might be more of a question for a PDF formatting forum, but if anyone has any ideas that'd be cool! xoxo gossip girl (more info, friend of mine is having issues, working with OMSAS, scared I will have the same issue though as they didn't do anything different than me)
  16. I'm currently enrolled at Ryerson; however, I was wondering if it would be more beneficial if I were to transfer into Western's or UofT's Biomedical programs. By beneficial I was wondering if completing my undergrad at either of these schools would increase my chances of acceptance as opposed to doing it a Ryerson?
  17. Good/regular/bad waitlisted by Western? Want to discuss chances/look for reassurance/rant/chat with other waitlisted applicants? This is the thread for you!
  18. I just finished my 3rd year, and had a relatively strong year compared to my others that would make me competitive for Western. However, I took 29 credits (I'm at UBC for reference, 5 and 5 for the year), where one of my required lab courses for my degree had only 2 credits leaving me with a total of 29. All of the other requirements are met, but I was wondering if anyone else was in this situation that successfully applied to Western or if I'm just SOL? I heard that OMSAS converts credits for a course differently but I haven't been able to find it. I'm trying to plan if I need to take a 5th year or not so any help would be appreciated! And I did contact Western but they gave me what seems like an automated response so I can't tell since my situation seems a little bit more nuanced than just not reaching the 30 credit limit.
  19. Hey guys! I'm looking to move to London for school in the fall and hoping to find some people in the program that also need roommates! ***Edit*** I have found a girl I will be rooming with next year in a 2 bedroom, but thank you so much for all of your offers! Regardless, feel free to message me and we can exchange contact info if you'd like to connect a bit before September Look forward to meeting all of you, -Megan
  20. Hey friends! I kept seeing things about people wanting/wondering about a Facebook group for the Western's incoming OT class... so I made one for us for now so we can all connect, people can look for roommates, ask questions and such Link to it attached below! https://www.facebook.com/groups/534658843597273/
  21. Hi everyone, I have some concerns regarding my overall application and was hoping for some feedback, insight, & suggestions/advice. My undergrad career has been a mountain climb, which is shown by my annual GPA trend: 1st Year: 1.91 2nd Year: 2.17 3rd Year: 2.82 4th Year: 3.68 5th Year: TBD I will be entering my 5th year and am hoping to score even higher than my 4th year (3.68). For some time I had a misconception that Western looks at your two best years and requires the overall GPA to be 3.7 OVER the 2 years. I recently heard that they require 3.7 in EACH of the two best years. (Depressing discovery). I am a SWOMEN student, therefore I do have some advantage (pretaining to enrolment seats and MCAT cutoffs), but my 4th year 3.68 may not allow me to apply to Western. I am already about to begin my fifth year in September, but that will do no good for Western taking into account that they need 3.7 in EACH of the two best years. Could you provide some insight regarding what I should consider my options? Here are some of my thoughts: I would qualify for Dalhousie medical school assuming I can maintain above 3.65 annual GPA in my fifth year - they require 3.7 but round to the nearest tenth. Therefore I hope to apply there in the 2019 application cycle. For Western, my only option is to do a 6th year and then apply - not sure if anyone has ever done this, or what people's feedback regarding this would be. Over the past couple of years, I have become more determined to pursue medicine and tried my best to cross challenges in my personal life in order to improve my standing, and I do not want to let my past academic record become an absolute barrier during this pursuit. Mentally, I tell myself that I can be prepared to give extra time towards my undergraduate degree. Please let me know what you think. Furthermore, do you have any insight regarding American Medical schools, and Ross University? In regards to residency, I understand that coming back to Canada has very slim chances. However, I currently don't see a personal objection to the idea of matching for a residency spot in the U.S. (and working there) - I just don't know about the exact match rate. I understand I said a lot, but I would appreciate any thought, insight, or advice/recommendation from the PreMed101 community. Thank you!
  22. Hey everyone! I just stumbled onto this forum so bear with me. I'm hoping to get into OT at either Western or McMaster and I am considering moving. Is anyone else considering looking for roommates? Would love to live with someone in the same program! I know it's early but I just thought it would be nice to have some sort of plan since may is really late to be scrambling for leases. Thanks friends!
  23. Hello Premed 101, im new! I'm seeking some guidance from more knowledgeable people who may see my situation from a different perspective than me. To cut to the chase, I'm accepted to Life sci and Kinesiology at McMaster, and expecting acceptances from Western for Medical Sciences and McGill for Biological, Biomedical and Life sciences (95.5% overall). I've taken the time to develop good and persistent study habits in an effort to make the transition to university a little bit better. All of these programs seem to present different strengths to me, like how kin offers an anatomy & physiology course the first two years, and I love Mac's cadaver lab and LOVE studying the human body. With that, I also take a lot of time studying physics and calculus because I love developing better critical thinking. I'm just looking for the best program that I can take my physics, calculus, bio and chem in order to prepare for MCAT (ik theres no calc on MCAT), but want to specialize in something that mainly focuses on the human body in upper years (little to no interest in plant biology)? I know life sciences has a physiology specialization, but does that mainly look at human physiology? Either way I'm looking to work my tail off, but if anyone knows how these compare in difficulty, curved grades, etc for attaining a high GPA (not looking for spoon-fed GPA), a comparison would help. Thanks!!
  24. Hi, I was accepted to several undergraduate life science/medical science programs, but I am unsure about where I should go. If anyone has attended the following programs listed below, could you tell me about your experience? (e.g. quality of education, competition, bell curve, academic or extracurricular opportunites, atmosphere of the university/campus, etc.) For me, I feel like there are several pros/cons for each program/university, and I just don't know where I should go. McGill Life Sciences, Western Medical Sciences, uOttawa Biomedical Science, Queen's Science, Waterloo Biomedical Sciences, McMaster Life Science, McMaster Integrated Science. Thanks!
  25. Hello everyone! Just decided to start up another thread as I'm sure a few of you have some decisions to make over the next few weeks. If you've got any questions regarding the program that we've got here at Western, student life in London, or absolutely anything else, fire away and I'll do my best to answer them! We also have a facebook group that's getting started up by our PT student council, once that's up you guys can also post some question there!
