  1. Hey everyone, I just wanted to start a thread for when interview invites start rolling out around end of march everyone can stay updated! If you get an email/call post below and keep us updated. Or if anyone has questions good luck everyone!
  2. 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!
  3. I have applied for OT entry level, but have't heard anything yet. Please contact with m if you are an international applicant to OT in Dalhousie! Thank you!!
  4. Does anyone have any experience navigating the course load discussions? It says you need to have taken 10 courses in your last two years of undergrad (so 5 each term). My program would split courses into double so they could squeeze more classes into our degree (ie. FSN 706 would be two classes on two different subjects and we'd get two different marks). I did what most students did and did all my electives in my last year part time. So... i don't meet that course load requirement. They said they will allow for it if your program is structured differently, but it's a B. Des, so I feel like they won't be familiar with it. Anyone ever navigate this? Wondering if/who I should maybe sit down with to discuss whether I'm even able to apply... I also graduated way back in 2013 if that matters and have an MA since then

    Dal OT

    Any past or current Dal OT students know what their MScOT GPA cut-off was the last couple of years? Or are willing to share what GPA you had for your admission? Thanks!
  6. Hello fellow DAL OT 2018 Prospective Students! Wanted to start a forum to hear about others who are waiting to hear back from DAL OT from the 2018 application process. I did not receive an email of confirming my application was received (dropped off in person), however my DAL online says status incomplete. I'm guessing this is because I am in the process of completing my Anatomy and Physiology prerequisites. Wondering if anyone else is in the same boat or what your status is? Best of luck! Halifax, NS

  8. I wanted to make a list of medical school requirements (what/how many courses you need, what year they look at, any special eligibility to drop grades (e.g. UofT if you take a full courseload, you get to drop your lowest mark during that year), if school looks at your summer GPA. I have a makeshift list so far, but if anybody could add to it that would be great <3 When people starts adding, I'll finish with a nicer looking chart. Just need help with UBC Dalhousie (NOTHING): To be eligible to apply to Dalhousie Medical School, a full course load of five full classes in each of the two most senior years of the baccalaureate degree submitted for assessment is required. This must be the case regardless of the course load required by the program in which you are enrolled. Only fall and winter terms are used for assessment. Summer courses do not count towards GPA or course load requirements. No specific courses are required, but students are encouraged to pursue challenging and diverse topics, and to have a natural progression in their course selection of the degree being completed. McGill: 2 biology, 2 chemistry, 2 physics, 1 organic chemistry McMaster: An overall simple average will be calculated using the grades from all undergraduate degree level courses ever taken (with the exception of credits taken on exchange outside of Canada/USA). Work of different years is treated equally. This average is calculated by the applicant on the OMSAS Academic Record Form and verified on the OMSAS Verification Report which is sent to applicants. McMaster University may also review and revise this average. The marks from supplementary and summer courses will be included in the GPA calculation. Courses for which a "Pass" grade is assigned are counted for credit, but will not be included in the GPA calculation. In order for the GPA to be evaluated, independent grades from a minimum of 5 half-year or 5 full-year courses in total, are required, without which the application will not be considered. Queens: Degree programs or individual courses are not considered a factor in the calculation of GPAs Calculations include grades from all courses included on the transcript, including repeated courses Courses with Pass/Fail grades or transfer credits (including International Baccalaureate, Advance Placement and CEGEP programs) are not included No adjustments are made based on course load or course levels Calgary (NOTHING): The Cumming School of Medicine does not require that students undertake a formal pre-medical program. No specific courses are required for application or acceptance to the MD program. The admissions committee recommends that applicants consider taking as many of the courses listed in the Applicant Manual as their schedules allow, as the content of these courses will be helpful in preparing for the Medical College Admission Test and during the MD program. Whether or not an applicant has taken these courses at the time of application will not be taken into consideration in scoring the academic record. Students should ensure that the courses they choose satisfy the degree requirements of the undergraduate faculty in which they are registered. Manitoba (what?): The College of Medicine welcomes applicants from all provinces and territories. Up to 5% of the class will be selected from this pool. The Admissions Committee defines Out of Province as those who are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, but are not a permanent resident of Manitoba. Eligibility requirements remain the same for this applicant pool and you are welcome to apply if you meet or exceed the minimum requirements. However, the Admissions Committee discourages individuals from applying who have an AGPA lower than 3.94 and an operative MCAT score lower than 10.75. If you fall into one or both of these categories, you have a low chance of receiving an invitation to interview. You will need the science courses Chemistry 40S and Biology 40S or 40G in preparation for university studies. Many students also take Physics 40S in preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). In addition, you will need Math 40S (pre-calculus or applied) and definitely need English 40S or French 40S. Ottawa (need org chem for an equivalent of 2 full year courses of chem): One full year course (or two semester courses) in General Biology including laboratory session; One full year course (or two semester courses) in Humanities / Social Sciences; The equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. A full-time academic year where the equivalent of four (4) full-year courses is taken is accepted and counted in the WGPA calculation only if the missing course/credit is completed either as an additional course within another academic year or as a summer course. Individual courses taken during a summer session are accepted for the credit value in this instance however the mark obtained is not counted in the calculation of the WGPA. Any year with less than four full-year courses will not count as a full-time year of study. A full-time summer semester does not replace a semester of studies within an academic year. AP, IB and transfer credits are not recognized as fulfilment of full time studies requirement. Toronto: two full-course equivalents (FCEs) in life sciences and one FCE in a social science, humanities or language UBC: The fuck? 6 credits in english. How does this work. Is that 3.0 credits in English??? Western: Applicants must meet the minimum GPA in each of the two best undergraduate years with a full course load of 5 full or equivalent courses (30 credit hours) taken between September and April. Each of the two years used for the GPA requirement must have at least 3 full course equivalents whos e published level is at or above the year of study. For example, in your third year of study, 3 of 5 full course equivalents must be at the 3rd year-level or above. Academic transcripts must clearly show that applicants have met this course load/level requirement.
  9. I just wanted to send out a big congratulations to everyone who received their acceptance letters this week. For those of you coming to Dal this fall, please get in touch with me regarding your professional line of credit as I have a very good package I can put together for you. I can't advertise the exact details, but let's just say it's a fantastic offer. Get in touch with me soon and we can discuss the details, I won't be here much longer as my wife just matched to family med at UofT so we'll be moving by July 1st. Cheers! Alex
  10. I have read in several places on premed 101 (and heard from several other students) that multiple family medicine programs allow you to add applications to additional sites (within their program) after interviewing. I am having trouble finding reference to this within the carms program description pages. I am wondering if anyone knows: 1. Which FM programs you can add additional site applications to late? (Particularly interested in UBC, Dalhousie, NOSM, and Memorial.) 2. How to logistically do this---assuming within carms portal exactly as you applied for other programs? 3. If we decide BEFORE the interview (i.e. now) that we would like to add a site application if we can do that? Really appreciate the help!

  12. Hi guys! (sorry in advance for the long-winded post). I'm planning to apply to Dalhousie for OT 2017 admission, however I have to take the physiology (6 credit hours) and anatomy (3 credit hours) pre-requisites in order to apply. I will also apply to a few other schools (U of T/Queens/McMaster) and UBC), however Dal is my top choice (just based on location). Thus, I'm stuck spending this semester (sept 2016) and next (Jan 2017) getting those pre-reqs! I am trying to decide from which online university I should take physiology, as I am having trouble getting into any UVic or Camosun Physiology classes because seats are offered to kinesiology students first and generally reach saturation. Has anyone taken Bio 230 (Human physiology - 6 CH) through Athabasca? Online reviews for Athabasca are awful, but when I look at the syllabus for Bio 230 it doesn't seem that demanding, plus I will have 8 months to work through the course. Please let me know if you've personally taken this course before, or recommend alternate online courses! I am going to try to enroll in my Anatomy pre-req here at UVic as it doesn't have the same kines restriction that the physiology ones do, and I *think* classroom learning is generally easier, although I do work 3 part-time jobs at the moment so flexibility is also key. *As a note, I have no physiology or anatomy background, but do have chemistry/physics/biology/math from my undergrad (though, that was over 6 years ago now). **As a second note, I did enroll in TRU's Bio 3701 Advanced Anatomy last year (because their intro anatomy was full) and completely bombed it, even though I am an anal A+ student generally. So, I really want to avoid a repeat experience and thousands of dollars down the drain. SO I guess on that note I do in fact have anatomy experience, although I think I've tried to black out most of it. THANKS SO MUCH! Chantele
  13. Hi guys, I am very new to the process (new to the research stage lol) and just wanted to throw some feelers out to see if I could potentially be a competitive applicant GPA wise. I have a few more pre req's to get before applying. I'm thinking about applying to Dalhousie's Dental program for the Fall 2017 class. I am a Dalhousie student with a cGPA is a 3.69/4.3. Just finished my third year. I had a rough first and second year, so that is why my GPA is so low First Year --> Fall: 3.42 Winter:3.54 Second Year --> Fall: 3.67 Winter:3.34 Third Year --> Fall: 4.08 Winter: 4.22 Does Dal look at students having a full course load? I am thinking my GPA is too low to even be considered for an interview I have not wrote the DAT. What is a competitive score? Also I have no dentistry relevant shadowing experience. How many hours are a competitive amount? Or do they even focus on shadowing? What do you suggest my next steps be? Also for some reason I can not find a thread about the entering Dalhousie class of 2016? Could someone post the link for me. Any information would be helpful! Thank you for your time!!
  14. Hi there I just received my letter and I've been waitlisted (Maritime applicant).

Dal is not releasing the ranking positions and I am so frustrated with the never-ending wait.... if you are or you know of someone who is declining the offer could you please reply on this post? Thanks in advance!!

  17. Hello, Can someone tell me if Dal rounds your gpa to the nearest 10th from each year before calculating the average or is it just rounded after? For example, say I have a 3.88 one year and 3.97 the next year. Would the calculation be 1. (3.88+3.97) /2= 3.925 which is then rounded to 3.9 2. (3.9+4.0)/2=3.95 which is then rounded to 4.0 Thanks!
  18. Hey everyone, For the Dalhousie supplemental application (2b), all of the activities you put down (employment, volunteering, ECs, etc) have a box labeled "year of study completed or non student". Most of my activities span several years. Do I write the education level for the range (1st year - 3rd year) or just the highest year completed while doing that activity (3rd year)? Thanks so much, good luck to all applying
  19. Hi! I'm having a very difficult time deciding between Queen's and Dalhousie for OT. I'm interested in mental health and pediatrics. I'm looking for anyone's opinions on the pros/cons of each school. Thank you!
  20. Hello! I figured I would start this thread for those who know they are heading to Dal in September. It's driving me a bit crazy that we haven't received much information about the coming year. So we can use this space to meet each other, and maybe create a facebook group? Perhaps find roommates, etc. So excited to meet you guys!!!
  21. Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone knows of any guest houses that are in the price range of $50-$80 in Halifax? We've already spent quite a bit on airline tickets and we're going on Thursday as we wanted to do some sight seeing as well so for us it doesn't really matter if the place is too fancy (although still of a good standard, ofc). Staying in Atlantica which would be the cheapest hotel from what I know so far would be over $400 so I'm trying to avoid that. Thank you!
