I am a high school student who is considering to accept Ryerson’s Biomedical Sciences program. I have been accepted to Western Health Sciences, Brock Medical Sciences (and their MedPlus extra program which is really good), Laurier Health Sciences, Uft Life Sci, Carleton Health Sci, and McMaster Life Sci. My major concerns involve the arrangement of the coop terms. Medical Schools in Canada require at least two school semesters to be consecutive for students enrolled into coop programs. In Ryerson, semesters 5 and 6 are separated by three work terms. I wanted to know if I would be able to keep semesters 5 and 6 together, then have them followed by the three coop terms. On the other hand, if I choose not to take coop, would I be at a disadvantage since most of the research positions will be taken by the coop students? Additionally, I will be a commuting student and would like to know the general timings of the lectures, tutorials and labs last year. Lastly, are there any additional resources at Ryerson that would help me with the MCAT preparation, or the general application of medical school (including volunteering and job shadowing opportunities)? Even for volunteer research places downtown, won't I be competing with UFT students? ANY help and info on Ryerson graduates in med school would help. My goal is to go to a small university where I stand out. I know people in med schools from all universities except ryerson! My financial situation isn't so great either and therefore Ryerson helps. I have to accept an offer by next week.
Hello guys I’m an international student and just got my admission from York University in Biomedical Sciences. I’m interested in the medical or dental school for future studies after getting my bachelor degree in Biomed. I’ve heard from many people that York is not a good choice and I won’t have a chance to enter medical school from York, in another hand, many people suggest me to study my health science major in McMaster University. They say I’ll have a better chance to enter medical or dental school after studying in McMaster as it is well-known for its health science programs. McMaster’s deadline for fall is over and if I want to change my university I have to study 1 or 2 semesters in York and then I can transfer to McMaster. What’s your thought about this? Help me plz
I have been accepted to both McGill Biological, Biomedical, and Life Sciences and McMaster Integrated Sciences programs. I am torn between where to go for my undergraduate year. Since my ultimate goal is medical school, GPA is an incredibly important deciding factor, and from what I have heard, Integrated Sciences does offer an easier mark. However, I feel as if I would enjoy my time at university more at McGill, as it offers a more enjoyable environment and a biology centred program, which is something I would enjoy more. Both programs are research focused, although Integrated Sciences has a research component that is more guided and intensive. McMaster's program is focused on interdisciplinary science rather than biology, which is something that turns me off its program. It is also very restrictive, in that electives are limited, while McGill has more of a traditional university schedule. I have 2 weeks to decide. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
Hi guys, I am a Canadian (Well, Korean but PR in Canada) high school student, and I will be attending McGill University for Biomedical Sciences next year. I plan to major either Immunology or Anatomy and Cell Biology, and hopefully then into Med school. Though I can't speak French, I've heard that there are some places near Montreal that med hopefuls can volunteer and gain some work experience. If that isn't possible, I can visit BC or South Korea where I am originally from (where I lived for 7 years) to volunteer in a hospital or something. Can anyone give me some advice how to survive in McGill, gain some extra-curricular experiences that med schools might look at? Any advice, criticism, sarcasm are welcomed, and if this forum isn't the right place to post something like this, I am so sorry :C
