  2. I'm trying to decide between 2 schools for a MSc thesis based program. One is larger, in a much more scenic location, more institutional funding, and has a better global reputation. The other is much smaller. I am doing my masters because I enjoy the topic I'm studying, hoping a masters will help with my application and at the same time, give me training needed to prepare for an alternative career. Everyone is telling me to go to the one with a better reputation because they think better reputation = better faculty = more diverse class = better educational training = better job prospects in case med doesn't work out and the location will make my experience more pleasant. Even I agree with these points. Despite everything though, I am STILL leaning towards the smaller school because I think it'll mean a more close-knit and supportive community. More faculty attention means possibly more support to publish (isn't research productivity the main benefits of a masters?), and securing stronger reference letters in the end. If my end goal is medicine, what ultimately matters when choosing a grad program? How likely you will publish, and the fit (regardless of reputation)?
  3. I am interested in applying to a M.Sc program this year as my alternative plan if I am not accepted into med. I am wondering what is the usually timeline for those that are applying to both med and a M.Sc. I am also interested in getting as much funding as possible for the M.Sc so I would also be looking for CIHR/NSERC for the masters, which I guess means I should be applying earlier. However my friend has also mentioned that some M.Sc programs have late deadlines and that I should apply after interviews have been scheduled for OMSAS. My other question is supposed I have been accepted by both a M.Sc and OMSAS, it is possible to reject a lab's offer right? Would this be frowned upon? Thank you everyone!
  4. I am planning to apply for MSc pharmacy at memorial university. I had done Bachelor of Pharmacy (75.5%) . What are my chances for admission?
  5. What is the minimum marks of student admitted to MSc Toxicology Program at university of Saskatchewan. I have done Bachelor in pharmacy and my percentage is 75.5%. what are my chances of admission?
  6. I am student who has just finished second year and would like to keep the possibility of a Masters in mind. I am doing 110% to get into Med school after Undegrad, but understand that not everyone gets in the first time around. However, I am completely lost on where to start. Do I approach professors personally and start volunteering/ working for them if I am really interested in their research? Or is it more of a set path, in which I apply for a certain Masters program (similar to Undergrad). I am guessing it varies across different universities? Any help would be great!
  7. Hey everyone, Does U of A have a deadline for completion of grad degrees? I expected that if there was a deadline it would be in the admission letter, but I didn't see anything. I'll be phoning admission in the morning to ask, but figured I'd try here first. Thanks,
  8. Hi, So I messed up the first year of my undergrad pretty hard due to some tough circumstances. I'm doing better now and have lots of volunteer experience, but I know it's not enough to apply to medicine straight out of undergrad. So when I finish my undergrad I will be doing one of 2 things: a) completing a MSc in physical therapy (I have always been very interested in PT so even if medicine were to fail I could be happy doing this) b ) completing a second undergrad which I DON'T screw up. Anyone know if one of these would be a safer bet than the other? Is it better to apply with a 2nd BSc or a MSc? And is physical therapy a good MSc program to be applying to medicine from? Thanks for any help
  9. Hi everyone! Sorry for the long post, but just looking for some quick advice on grad school/applying! I'm currently finishing my first year of grad school in a 2 year thesis-based MSc in epidemiology. After a lot of discussion and contemplation, I've decided that I really want to apply to med school once I'm finished. However in a recent conversation with my supervisor, he suggested that my project was coming along really well and that if I transferred to the PhD stream this summer I could probably finish it in an extra year and a half (so 3.5 total, as opposed to 2 years for the Masters). I am enjoying the project, however given the timing of admissions (I'd probably finish in Dec 2017), I'm a bit torn on whether to delay applying for another 2 years to transfer. I am interested in pursuing research as a clinician, so that's why I'm drawn to getting the PhD as opposed to simply sticking with the MSc. However, I'm a bit unclear as to whether there would be a significant benefit to having a PhD vs MSc, especially since this will be before I start medical school and decide what to specialize in (for instance, my project is examining lung cancer outcomes, however I don't know at this point if oncology is what I'll end up in). I know I could apply for MD/PhD programs, however that would be an extra 3-4 years (vs 1.5) at this point, and since you typically start your research only a year into medical school, I think I might have the same problem about the focus of my research. Alternatively, I know if I apply now and decide later that I really do want to pursue the PhD, I could do so after medical school part-time or through one of the clinician-scientist training programs, so I'm not sure if that's a better option, especially considering the difference in funding/salary at that point. I think another issue that's drawing me to the PhD is that this would be my first time applying (if I applied this Oct, assuming I stick with the MSc), so I don't have the best idea what my chances of getting in this year are. My undergrad GPA is decent (3.88/4), and I do have a number of ECs and a couple of publications (not first author), but unfortunately most of my research activities (conferences, first-author publications) will be done this year after the October application deadline. I'll be writing my MCAT in late August, so I'd have to decide before I get those results. Thanks for any and all advice! TL;DR Applying to med school and want to do clinical research. Trying to decide whether it is worth it to delay applying for 2 years to transfer from MSc to PhD
  10. Hello, this is my first post but I have been a lurker for many years now. I just graduated with an undergrad cGPA of 3.70 (1st year: 3.42, 2nd year: 3.81, 3rd year: 3.62, 4th year: 3.93) and I will be writing the new MCAT this year. My GPA stats based on each medical school are as follows: 3.76 UofT (after weighting) 3.76 Ottawa 3.72 Queens 3.87 Western 3.70 McMaster My EC's are very average: volunteered abroad, many little volunteering events (some lasting a few months, one for ~6 years), shadowed a doctor, member of a few clubs (no exec positions), attended some conferences as part of my thesis I'm sorry to add another thread like this but I've weighed out all my options and would like other opinions, would it be more beneficial to complete a fifth year or pursue a Masters program based on my stats? Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
