  1. Hello all, I was trying to find information about OSAP but the only stuff I could find was from years ago. I did engineering for undergrad so my tuition was relatively high; OSAP would cover all and give approximately half as grants (I think it was called opportunity grants). Is the same sort of thing applicable to med tuition? Or is it they give enough to cover tuition (+ added expenses) and it's all payable. I know that the government has added a lot of grants and incentives recently (for example, I think there are grants for people under a certain income) but I've been out of undergrad for a few years so I'm not current on any of that. If anyone has info about those too it would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi I'm currently a 3rd year sciences student in Canada. My plan is to go into dentistry in Canada however the schools here are very competitive so I'm definitely going to be applying to a lot of USA schools as well. I've been looking at the fees for a lot of dental schools and I've seen ranges from $250k USD all the way up to $500-600k USD, for other Canadian students who have attended dental schools in the USA how difficult is it to get a loan? Can you even get a loan that's going to pay for $500k-600k USD? If not how did you fund your dental school fees? Thank you.
  3. Hi Everyone, first time poster here looking for some advice for a unique situation that I'm in. Hopefully some other people out there have been through something similar or might know some information that I don't! I'm planning to apply to medical school this summer but I'm debating if I should apply to American schools for several reasons. First, some facts: I have an undergrad degree from an Ontario university (cGPA = 3.80, sGPA = 3.85, year 2-4 GPA = 3.89) I am currently in my first year of a two year graduate program (Physiotherapy at an Ontario university), which I will finish in Sept 2018 if I stay in I wrote the MCAT for the first time in Aug 2016 and scored a 518 (pretty even across each subject, I studied hard) I decided I wanted to go to med school (and write the MCAT) after applying to PT (long story) but I got into PT so I went with it The dilemma is this: I learned from a grad school adviser that I am unable to apply to most Canadian medical schools while I am enrolled in a graduate program. I have to prove that I will be completing my Master's prior to the summer before entering med school in order for them to even consider my application. I also read most of the Canadian medical school's websites and found various statements which also say something along the same lines. The only schools that I think will actually let me apply this year (that I know of) are McMaster, Ottawa and possibly Alberta. However, I don't like McMaster's PBL style, Ottawa won't look at my MCAT and Alberta is out of province for me (odds are lower). Mainly for this reason I am considering applying to American medical schools this year. I'm wondering if anyone has any opinions on this? (NOTE: I realize I can wait till I graduate and apply to all Canadian schools but I want to avoid this for several reasons that I won't get into). Some things I'm wondering about: I know it's tough for a Canadian citizen to get admitted to US schools but I think my admission stats are good and my ECs are pretty decent as well. Do I have a good chance at MD schools? Tuition is much higher in the states and obviously OSAP won't help me. Will I be able to get loans from a Canadian bank? Is their financial aid available from the schools for Canadians? Is the amount of debt I'll be in so overwhelming that it's not worth it? Will I have any trouble getting a visa if I get in? What about after the 4 years with finding a residency? Does being a Canadian citizen limit me at all? I wouldn't mind practicing in the states, I've heard the earning potential is higher and the outlook is better for doctors there at the moment. Are these things true? Will I eventually be able to come back to Canada to practice? Are there any other major advantages or disadvantages to going to an American school that I haven't considered? If you've read this far, thank you! I welcome any advice or knowledge anyone can share about these topics. It would be much appreciated! I'd also be happy to return the favour and answer any questions about how I got to where I am
  4. http://www.omsa.ca/news/2016/3/23/press-release-re-changes-to-postsecondary-student-financial-support-in-ontario "Most problematically, access to the OSG will be limited to 4 years of eligibility. Each year a student has previously received Ontario Tuition Grant support will eliminate one year of OSG eligibility. The 4-year limit will immediately exclude many medical students. Unfortunately, the excluded medical students will be those whose financial situation is dire enough to have required grant funding for their (much cheaper) undergraduate education. These students become the medical students most in need of support. Prohibiting their access to the OSG program may threaten to increase the debt load of this key demographic. " There's no details yet as to how this is exactly going to work. But, from what I read, if you USED the OSG in the past, you may be limited since you can only use it for up to 4 years. However, 30% off tuition, if eligible, makes a big dent in the med school debt ( about 8k a year). Have you guys heard anything about this? What do you guys think?
  5. Hi there, I am a Medical Student writing on behalf of my sister who completed a B.Sc. in Biopharmaceutical Sciences at U of Ottawa and is applying to Pharmacy schools. It is very very competitive in Canada, and other than an interview at UofT, she is not having any luck getting in. She got accepted to MCPHS or Mass Pharm in Boston and it has a good reputation. The problem however is tuition. The cost of Tuition is 75-80 000 per year. The second problem is that they are asking her to do a 5 year program. They have a 6 year program for students straight from high school, and you can do a 4 year from after a BSc but since she's missing a microbiology class and some other (rather insignificant) classes, they are asking her to do a 5 year... which adds tremendously to the cost. We inquired about loans from Ontario (OSAP) but they only offer about 6000 per year for this. Line of credits go up to only 80 000 at the banks we've enquired at. We are looking for any advice you could offer if anyone knows of anyone who applied or did a pharm degree in the US and how they fared. Thanking you in advance.
