    UofT vs UBC

    I've been accepted to both schools. (I'm from BC) This is not a question about weather, city, traffic. I'd like to hear from students who have been to either school. UBC students, I'm not too thrilled to do PBL. UofT students, the class is very large. Do you get stressed easily as a result of waiting in lines? ANY info about the actual school environment and curriculum is highly appreciated.
  6. Hi, I am a UofT St George first year student looking forward to applying both Canadian and US Med Schools. May I get your kind help on addressing my following concerns: 1) Since I have to take 1 year full English, I am thinking to take a summer course at US University to fulfill the requirement. Do you think it may help to build my ties with US ? I do not want to take this course at my home University as I am afraid it will pull down my GPA. is there any comments from Canadian student at Ontario Universities who has taken summer course at US University for applying US med schools? 2) Is it achievable to get A+ or A from UTSG English course like ENG1001G1? any recommendation on English course at UTSG that can help my GPA or at least not hurting it? 3) If I decide to take 1 full year English course at Ontario, can I take it at UofT Scarborough or Ryerson and submit the grade to US schools but not to Ontario schools? will it look odd? 3) is it doable to get a A+ in UTSG organic chemistry? Do we need to take 1 full year of organic chemistry if we want to play safe in applying US med schools? is there any course recommendation in organic chemistry at UTSG? 4) I took 2 phy/ 2chem/2 bio/2 math/psychology /sociology in my first year. Any suggestions in drafting my second /third/fourth years courses map to suit the US applications? any course recommendation on anatomy/biochem/physiology or things I have to be aware of? 5) I am thinking to choose Immunology or cell biology or global health as my major. In terms of achieving high GPA in UTSG, which one is a better choice. Is there any other majors that is more likely for one to achieve high GPA? 6) How can I get more premed support at UTSG? I feel there is not much advice in campus. Appreciate some UTSG alumni who have successfully got in US med schools would show me the light. Many thanks for your kind help.
  7. So... deep breath that it is finally over. The process was pretty relaxed and overall well done in my opinion. Now we have the next two weeks to coast and wait for our decision. How is everyone feeling?
  8. I applied to the MPH: Social and Behavioural Health Sciences program for Fall 2019. The website says decisions will be given in March. However, Last year's cohort received their decisions mid-April. I was wondering if anyone who has aplied to any of the MPH programs at Dalla Lana for 2019 or in past years know when 2019's decisions will be snet out. Or if you would like to share when you heard back from them in previous years, that would be extremely helpful as well. If you received a rejection, then please share some statistics of why you think you may have been rejected so it is helpful for the rest of us. Thanks guys!

    UofT Interview

    Anyone else suspects invites would come out by the end of today ? Last year, they said end of of Feb, yet we got the invites on the 10th. This year, they said mid January and it’s either this Friday or next Friday imo, given that invites are traditionally released on a Friday, just minutes before 5 pm ... Any input on this ?
  10. Hi everyone, I'm looking to take the above course this term. Does anyone know if the midterm and final have to be supervised? Any further feedback/advice on this course would be appreciated. It loos interesting, but intense. Thanks and good luck!
  11. My top choice is UofT Epi ut its sorta more important for me to get into school next Sept than it is to land my dream school- but then Im also worried about selling myself too short. Is Guelph MSc epi worth it? Any current grads in Epi from there or Western/Queens/UofT able to throw in a dime? Thanks!

    DAT what to expect

    Hey guys, I'll be writing the Canadian DAT at UofT this Saturday for the first time and was wondering what to expect when I sit down. How will I be seated, what will I see on the table in front of me, whats the overall atmosphere like? Kind of hoping for a step-by-step from someone who has written so I can calm my nerves a bit! How many pencils will we be given, erasers, blank sheets for rough work?? Also, are we allowed to write on the question sheets, will we be answering on a scantron, is it just a clock or is it a timer?
  13. Hi everyone, I am a consultant/coordinator for a new medical company that is aiming to help residents that have completed or are close to completing their residency take their next steps. One of the things I would like to coordinate is free monthly dinner and learns for residents that would be hosted by guest speakers who work in the field that cover topics which would be most beneficial for residents. The topics I think would be great are: Finding placements after residency, Starting your own clinic, and Medical/legal pitfalls. I also think the dinner and learns would be a great way for residents to make lasting connections. As you are all residents, I am wondering if you could give me feedback on these topics. If you were to attend a free dinner and learn, would you find these topics useful? What other topics would you want to learn more about? Would you even be interested in attending a free dinner and learn? Thank you for taking the time to read this post, I look forward to reading your replies!
  14. I'm currently enrolled at Ryerson; however, I was wondering if it would be more beneficial if I were to transfer into Western's or UofT's Biomedical programs. By beneficial I was wondering if completing my undergrad at either of these schools would increase my chances of acceptance as opposed to doing it a Ryerson?
  15. Hello everyone, As title says I wanted to know what are my chances with a 3.83 WGPA and 25 AA 24 RC and 24 PA. to get an interview. I have finished fifth year Undergrad. Thanks a lot for your responses.
  16. On the admission requirements of DDS at UofT it says the following: It should be noted that in the last several years, the minimum GPA for those interviewed was 3.85* (4.0 scale). *Note that courses taken in the academic year, during the proposed year of entry will not be included in the calculation of the applicant's cumulative GPA. Any offer of admission, however, will be contingent upon the successful applicant maintaining an annual GPA of at least 3.0 (4.0 scale) for the current academic year.*The worst academic year will be dropped from the calculation of an applicant's undergraduate cumulative grade point average provided that (a) the applicant has completed four or more years of university education by May 31st of the proposed year of entry, and (b) the year with the lowest grades is not the applicant's most recently completed year of study. for those that can speak from experience, was 3.85 actually the cut-off?
  17. Just a little bit about me: Ontario resident WAS planning on applying to UofT and Western... now idk what to do first year gpa: 2.91/4.0 with 5 credits *hard facepalm* (gpa sucks) second year gpa: 3.41/4.0 with 4 credits *less hard facepalm* (but still pretty hard because of having only 4 credits and needing 5 for Western and my gpa not being where it needs to be) going into my third year of studies and planning on writing DAT this November what should I do?! side note: what are some good extracurriculars I can take?
  18. Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could offer some advice. I am currently second on the waiting for the DMD program at UofT (was originally number 4 but it moved two spots after the deposit). I was also accepted to UCC in Ireland for their dental program and I have to decide by early next week if I want to pay the deposit (a whopping 10,000 dollars). My top choice is obviously UofT and I know I'm high up on the waiting list, but I'm worried because UofT sent out acceptances so early this year that the waitlist wont move...
  19. Hello, I would really appreciate any advice that anybody could give me I am a student in grade 12 trying to decide where to go for undergrad in order to maximize my chances of getting into medical school and enjoy my experience during the next 4 years. I have offers from UTSG, York, Ryerson, and Waterloo for various programs. I regret not applying to McMaster, and wish I had as I just recently found out that they have the highest matriculation rate into Canadian medical schools. Considering the research I have done on peoples' experiences and perceptions of all these universities, I'm getting more and more weary and anxious of taking my chances and going to UofT in the fall because of the difficulty of maintaining a high GPA. I had initially wanted to go to UofT because it appeals to me the most course and program wise; I'm interested in pursuing a double major in Psych and Developmental Bio there. It also has benefits considering that its an internationally acclaimed research institution, it has affiliations with major hospitals, and would generally benefit me for ECs in my application. But would it be better for me to go to Ryerson, Waterloo, or York to avoid the impossible standards of attaining a high GPA? I also considered switching out to McMaster in second year, but the McMaster program seems to be similar in rigour to UTSG. On the other hand, my parents are urging me to attend an accredited and intensive medical school that accepts students straight out of high school in my home country. It would be beneficial in terms of being with my family, having guaranteed acceptance into medical school if I get in, and the early start on an intensive medical curriculum which would shorten my education. I am apprehensive of doing this for the following reasons: 1. I do not want to give up my experience in terms of extracurriculars, social science courses, and the treasured exploration of identity that Undergrad is known for (only slightly sarcastic) 2. I prefer Canadian society and life much more, as the university is in a conservative country and classes are segregated for the most part 3. I do not want to jeopardize my chances of getting matched into residency as IMG match rates are increasingly low in Canada and the US 4. The university awards an MBBS degree, so I'm not sure if that would dampen my chances of matching in Canada or the US So, I'm completely torn about which decision would be better for me academically and mentally, clueless of what university I'm going to be attending a few months from now. I apologize in advance for any sense of entitlement, errors, or ignorance that might come across from my cry for help :p.
  20. For a university such as UofT which prefers its MD applicants to have research experience, do you think having publications can "make up" for a lower wGPA such as 3.88? I'm worried that I will not be invited for interviews due to my low marks but I have a lot of experience in research and in my opinion, good ECs. Thanks in advance!
  21. Hey guys, I am having trouble deciding between the two schools and I would really like so advice from upper years and current students. These are both great schools and I feel so happy to be able to choose from them, but honestly every day I am split. Here is what I have so far: McGill: + cheap tuition + 6 months of pre clinical + from what I heard - easier to get research - less competitive - a lot of patients in french, my french is decent but not the best - uphill battles during winter - I am not made for winter Toronto: + more research + English downtown (more familiar with the location) + better temp. in winter - more competition - all research is competitive to get - tuition and living cost difference (comes to about 70-80K difference when I did the math) I do want to match in UBC or UT. I am most likely not going for a competitive specialty, but I am still interested in EM. (Two+1 is most likely the best option for me) Thank for your help and insights!

  23. Hey everyone, I just received my invite for the CAP test at UofT for PT. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it, and could give their insight into the test! Thank you and have a nice day!

  25. I've got a question about the Academic Explanations essay at UofT: I'm planning on applying this coming year but am concerned as I am not eligible for wGPA (I never took a full course load and instead took summer courses due to my chronic illness) and my current cGPA is 3.89.... all due to one calculus course I ended with a 70 in due to failing the final exam during an illness flare-up. Without that one course, my cGPA *would* have been 3.95. If I had been eligible for wGPA, I'd have a 4.00. I'm very concerned that despite having an otherwise strong application I will be disadvantaged due to this one course. What should I do? Would you advise I write the Academic Explanations essay? How else can I rectify this awful mistake? Thank you in advance!
