  1. I recently finished my bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at the University of Waterloo and am now working on my master’s degree in the same discipline. I am looking to apply to medical schools in Ontario for 2020 entry and have signed up to write the MCAT on September 19 this year. It’s pretty lonely being a prospective medical student in engineering grad school so I was wondering if there is anyone else in the same boat. If there’s anyone in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, that would be even better.
  2. Does anyone know anything about admissions to the MDCM program for applicants pursuing a masters degree? Do I need to complete the masters degree PRIOR to entering the MDCM program if admitted? Are graduate courses grades taken into account in the GPA calculation? Can't seem to find any info on graduate applicants. Thanks!
  3. I have to provide 3 references for OMSAS and I have 4 to choose from: 1. A professor I published a paper with, over 2 weeks of 12-hour days of field and lab research in undergrad, who likes me but had admittedly little face to face time. Fish physiological research, 3rd author. 2. My volunteer coordinator at the local hospital, 140 hours, 2 years, just loves me, and has very high praise from the head nurses of the wards I've volunteered in. 3. A program coordinator and technician who teaches an entomology field research course I attended. Field research, 2 weeks, 2 other courses with him. Easily my #1 fan, would be a spectacular reference with high praise, but not a professor. 4. My graduate thesis supervisor. Medical science, diabetes and atherosclerosis. Just an amazing guy but I don't think he likes me very much. Its been an unusually hard year, I've struggled with family issues, anxiety and depression and as a result I've performed uncharacteristically poorly. Missing days without notice, coming in late, slow pace of research. He has every right to be annoyed. The lab, colleagues and supervisor have all been spectacular, but I've just really struggled to make a good impression with everything going on. I've spoken to him several times to check in and while he was pleased with my progress until recently, in the last two months he's seemed pretty frustrated. I've proactively apologized for missing days but haven't told him about the anxiety and depression. Anyway, TLDR: my supervisor and I have a complicated relationship. Would it be better to use references 1,2, and 3? Would it hurt if I didn't include him? (I know UofT required him as a reference, but I'm asking mostly for other schools)

    PreMed or no Premed

    Hi there, I am a grade 11 honours/AP student who has a passion for sciences and medicine. Recently I've been browsing these forms and I've seen that this site is generally a good place to gain advice from former students about University and post graduate endeavours, so I thought, 'hey, why not give it a try'. I am here to ask if anyone knows of any successful and fulfilling (financial and personally fulfilling) fields to go into after an undergraduate program such as Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences and/or Biochemistry. I am also open to taking/planning on attending graduate school after undergrad if needed. I, of course, know that I can go to medical school and become a doctor (which in and of itself features a wide variety of specialities). However, I want to keep my options open. I really enjoy biology, chemistry and mathematics. I also love researching and working hands on in labs to find solutions to problems (so I looked into working in a hospital laboratory but the income wasn't too appealing). I just feel like the only medical career that will allow someone to be fulfilled (and financially successful), is a doctor [re-reading that statement I realize that it makes me seem very closed minded, which is why I need help]. Hopefully someone on here can shed some light on careers that are often over looked when choosing a career in Science and Medicine. Thank you for your help.
  5. I currently just started a Master's program. My stats were good enough to get me an interview last cycle but I unfortunately blew the interview. I am wondering if there are any schools - Canadian (mostly) or American that will defer their acceptances for a year until I finish my Masters? I already know for UWO you must be in your final year but anywhere else I can apply now? Or do I have to wait until my second year for most schools? Thanks!
  6. Hi, I have a BDS degree. I know that to work in Australia, I have to clear the ADC exam but is ADC exam necessary to work even if I get a Masters degree from Australia?
  7. Hey folks! So I'm currently a 4th year medical student from the UK. Medicine is a 5 year undergraduate course here so I'm only 21 and haven't yet graduated - 2 more years left though (including this one) woo! Following this, I'd do 2 years of residency in the UK ideally before choosing any specialty. I'm currently looking at my future options, one of which is to work in Canada. The only information I know about the medical boards is through all the official information websites - none of which are THAT helpful. So I was wondering if someone here could help me? When is the best to sit this MCCEE exam? Is it worth it? Shall I take it before my 2 years residency? Is it really difficult to obtain a medical licence in Canada? Any help would me greatly appreciated Thank you in advance xx
  8. Hey guys, Anyone know for sure what OT schools use grad school grades when calculating your GPA? Thanks1
  9. Hello all So i am currently enrolled in a course-based graduate program. It is supposed to take me 2 years to finish but I talked to the program director and she said I could finish it in a year if I wanted to. Suppose I find it difficult to take all the courses in one year and I recieve an offer of admission to a medschool. Would medschools allow me to drop out of the masters program or do I have to complete it first?

    Most Lucrative M.sc Degree?

    I am kind of at the cross road with where the heck I should aim my course selections for graduate studies. I am doing a biology degree with a minor in neuro at the moment. I heard molecular biology has a lot of flexibility and a good salary. Does anybody have insight on good science fields to get into?
  11. Just an FYI - nothing too major here, but there are some updates for grad applicants and MD/PHD applicants (first page). http://www.ouac.on.ca/docs/omsas/b_omsas_e.pdf Things of note: -additional material must be received (not submitted) by November 1 (before Nov. 1 for MD/PHD applicants) -the extra reference letter(s) should be mailed to OMSAS -the Academic CV should be uploaded through SAM
