  1. Hello, I have received several awards and scholarships throughout the years and I have documents for all of them. I remember seeing in the old OMSAS FAQs that it's ok to write "documents available upon request" as verifier if we have documentation. Unfortunately, I can't find this on the current website. Does anyone have official information on how to list awards and scholarships? Can we do it without having verifiers?
  2. Are you guys including the dollar amounts of your awards in the ABS? If yes, where are you guys writing it?
  3. Hi All, In the awards section of the ABS, there is a space that asks for the duration of the award. For some awards, this makes sense (like NSERC USRA/summer studentships) where the duration is usually from May-Aug. But what about for awards that I just receive on one day? For example, if I got an award on a specific date for achieving the highest grade in a course, what would the duration be? Or if I got an award for scoring high in a math contest, what would the duration be? What about for achieving the Dean's List? For these, should I just put down Not Applicable in the duration section or what? Thank you. I appreciate any help!

  5. Hello Everyone, I hope you guys are doing well. I have a question about Schulich Scholarships and funding for medical school at Western. I saw on the admissions website that schulich offers $100,000 scholarships for entering students: Payable $25,000 per academic year continuing for a period of four years, provided that recipients progress satisfactorily and continue to demonstrate financial need each year. Recipients will receive renewal information each spring/summer. Number of scholarships vary each year. So my question has to do with what are the pre-reqs for obtaining this scholarship. I know that financial need is something they look at, but are their other factors such as gpa, extra-curriculars etc? And for those who have obtained this scholarship, I guess your tuition is basically covered, right? I would be grateful for more information from students regarding this scholarship! Thank you
  6. As the costs of administering public healthcare to Canada’s aging population rise, federal and provincial governments have to make difficult decisions about how to pay for healthcare. In Ontario, this has resulted in continuous cuts to physician funding in 2015, and subsequent protest from physicians who claim this will have a negative effect on patient care. Toronto-based academic consulting firm MD Consultants wants to hear what you think about this issue. Submit a 500 word essay on how cuts to physician funding may or may not affect patient care, and you could win up to $500. For more details, go here!
  7. Does anyone have any advice regarding what Awards to list under the PA section? There are 4 slots so I want to put my best 4 out there, but I have no idea what Admissions are looking for ! Diversity? I could list a leadership scholarship, volunteer service award, athletic scholarship and research studentship (although I may use research in my work experience, in which case I wouldn't be able to use the research funding here) OR academic scholarship Prestige? Research and leadership awards are named awards, but the others are pretty generic Monetary Value? Academic and leadership scholarships, would exclude the awards that do not have monetary value I am leaning towards diversity, but the athletic scholarship has a low monetary value (~$500) so I don't know if that would be received poorly. I am a first time applicant so I have no idea what to expect for feedback, but it seems U of A is very harsh when it comes to Personal Activities Thanks
