  1. The lifetime maximum for OSAP funding is 340 weeks (non doctoral) and 400 weeks (doctoral). Eventually, I'll run out of funding (13 years total in school), but I will complete my PhD before entering my final years of medicine. Does the maximum only apply while you're in the doctorate program, and go back to the 340 weeks when I am completing my MD? Or does it stay at 400 weeks throughout my time at school? *Mainly asking because income is higher during the PhD and I won't get any grants, whereas I can maximize funding in my MD years if I forego funding now. Just wondering if anyone on these boards had experience with this! Thanks!
  2. I don't expect anyone will know the answers. But if you have time, I could use some advice and perspective on this manner. I'm in Canada. Dreamed as a Canadian born Filipino background to become a Flight Surgeon in the last week after failing by 1% to qualify for my pilot's license during the summer time just after my birthday at 16 y/o. MD & unfortunate events Now I'm 21. That dream is unrealistic after being abused by my boss who provided me a CHEM tutor job, 2 top volunteer awards, Scopolamine, and high marks in organic chemistry of 97 and 95 since my 2nd year till graduation. Now discarded. Don't worry I got counselling for healing from that. Forced to graduate with no extra terms due to financial reasons with a ~77% average, ~3.18 GPA, MCAT I took 2 wks after wisdom tooth surgery (125, 120, 124, 122 = 491) An option that still lingers in my mind is to go into the Canadian AF for flight nursing right after my paid Research award from May-August 2018. Especially with a RC Air Cadet background and an award for the Best President of a club at Uni. I don't know how further nurse applications in the CAF works yet, but I already passed the intelligence test with the CAF with flying colours to do either Flight Nurse or Doctor if I ever get accepted. Grad school vs. Nursing school This same supervisor for the Research award does not have funding. I also want to go into grad studies to either continue the research exp I had in a lab since 1st year 2nd term till now and do something with a supervisor that I know is mentally healthy and within the topics of my interest like my research award in tissue engineering or go into chemical physics and do some spectroscopy of nanoparticles related to analyzing amino-acids in gas phase, nanoclusters, and gold particles under IR spectroscopy and differential mobility spectroscopy (DMS). However, the issue is the job market after a masters, let alone a BSc. So, I'm thinking my best bet is to go into the military as a Nurse Officer to get mah CHEQUE & full pension by 40 y/o and see if I want to do MD down the road there in the land of "the True North strong and Free" under staying silent of the abusive actions of the higher ranks. Sorry if this was too much. Just being real here to find my next steps. Thanks for anyone's time here.
  3. Let's say my low GPA for 1st and 2nd year average at 3.39 GPA and 80.2%. LOW GPA Year 1: (1A+1B)/2 = (3.35+3.33)/2 = 3.34 (5 labs total worth 1.25 credits) (1A+1B)/2 = (77.9+77.5)/2 = 77.7% Year 2: (2A+2B)/2 = (3.49+3.39)/2 = 3.44 (4 labs total worth 1.00 credits) (2A+2B)/2 = (84.3+ 81.3)/2 = 82.75 % Total LOW GPA = 3.39 (80.2%) I know with my work ethic, I can get above 90's in courses that are mathematical, courses that I have access to introvertedly learn on my own before the course, courses where watching videos at 3.6 speed to accomplish any material can help, and as long as no one is berating me or I'm not dealing with grief of potentially losing someone close to me. The only path to continue is that I have a good MCAT of 132 verbal and apply to Mac or Western or get 128 balanced or above for all sections and apply to any medical school in the Fall 2017 and Fall 2018 before I take a fifth year of more bird courses with more courses that can help me get a Masters. The question is If my scholarship only covers for the first four years of university and I don't have enough for a fifth, sixth or more year, or for a Masters and PHd, what do I do until I get in to medical school through the Canadian military that pays off medical school only?
  4. 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
  5. Hi everyone I am an international medical student and considering applying for graduate studies ( masters or PhD ) in a basic science in a canadian university do you have any idea how tough is it for international students to get accepted in these programs and finding funding for it ? will this (obtaining a PhD or masters from a canadian medical school ) can improve my chances in getting a residency in canada ? NB: i will be doing a 4 weeks clinical elective followed by another 4 weeks research elective at mcgill university in march 2015 and i hope i can build some connections out there so that i can find a supervisor to accept me in his lab as a graduate student
